He’s here :)

My baby boy was born on October 23rd at 10:50pm. I woke up at 8:30am that morning and started doing laundry right away since i knew i needed more clothes to pack for the hospital. It’s like i knew i would need them that day. I was cramping, but that was normal. After putting the laundry in i had started timing my contractions, they were 8 to 10 mins. apart so i just kept keeping track. My husband and son both slept until around 10:00. When they woke up i told my husband that i thought today was the day. I called my doctor to let her know and she said if i could labor at home for another hour just to see how things go that would be good instead of being stuck at the hospital. So i labored for a few hours at home contractions going from 8 to 10 down to 6 minutes apart. At that time i took my son to my moms and hung out at her place for a little bit. Contractions were getting far apart but more intense so i told my husband lets just go in and see where I am. Went in and I was at a 4. They kept me since my first pregnancy went fast so they had me walk the hallways. At 5:00pm i was at a 5. Soon after I got an IV and about an hour later got an epidural which they had to do twice because it didn’t work the first time ๐Ÿ˜ฆ As i was getting it i told the nurse this was my last baby. I hate the feeling of an epidural. When i started pushing it only took me 20 minutes to push him out. I’m very happy that he picked his own birthday,if i wouldn’t have had him i would have been induced on the 26 which i wasn’t really set on.

I’ll update more later…little man is crying. For now here’s some pictures!

Almost time for baby #2

I can’t believe I haven’t wrote since I was 35 weeks. Time to update:

How far along? 38 weeks,5 days
Total weight gain: Around 32 lbs.
Maternity clothes? I wear since large
Stretch marks? No new ones. I use bio oil everyday
Sleep: Is still pretty good & loving naps
Best moment this week: Not sure there was one
Miss Anything? Sleeping on my back, hanging out with friends
Movement: Lots.
Food cravings: food is good
Anything making you queasy or sick: People who smell of B.O.
Have you started to show yet? YES..I feel huge
Gender: another boy
Labor Signs: lots of Braxton hicks. I work overnight on Tuesdays, I thought for sure I was going to walk the baby out.
Symptoms: tired, lots of cramping
Belly Button in or out? close to being out
Wedding rings on or off? On, yet i havenโ€™t tried taking it off.
Happy or Moody most of the time: I’d say both
Looking forward to: Not being pregnant anymore. I am just done. My due date isn’t until Oct.29th but they had me pick a date to be induced…that was hard I didn’t want to pick my sons birthday. My husband and I ended up picking Oct.26 (no reason) I am hoping he comes on his own sometime before that.

My next post might be when baby is here…crazy to think about.

Never get to write anymore

My husband normally takes the laptop to work with him so i never get to write anymore, but it’s time for an update ๐Ÿ™‚

How far along? 35 weeks tomorrow!
Total weight gain: Around 30 pounds
Maternity clothes? Not really, i did have to go up a few sizes in my work pants since i have to tuck my shirt in and wear a belt.
Stretch marks? No new ones. I use bio oil everyday
Sleep: Still love to nap when i get a chance, sleep is not horrible i get the full size bed to myself most of the time.
Best moment this week: lots of kicks,but that’s also a pain.
Miss Anything? Sleeping on my back, hanging out with friends
Movement: Lots…he wants out!
Food cravings: Not really…i just like food.
Anything making you queasy or sick: the heat. So happy it’s fall now, hopefully it cools down soon.
Have you started to show yet? YES
Gender: another boy
Labor Signs: It’s still early, but sometimes i have to just stop what I’m doing and breathe. This baby is kicking my butt.
Symptoms: tired,breathless,hungry
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On, yet i haven’t tried taking it off.
Happy or Moody most of the time: moody due to a new manager at work that i can’t stand.
Looking forward to: Getting the crib up and getting everything ready for baby. I have fallen behind. At this time with my last pregnancy i was ready, but being that i work full-time and have to take care of a 2 year old i just want to sit down when i get home from work.

I did move a few weeks ago to a house from an apartment. We now have a little bit more space. It’s a smaller house, but we went from a 2 bedroom to a 3 bedroom and having a backyard now is nice.

People at work keep asking if I’m ready….No I’m not and i don’t think i will be. I’m going to miss my sleep and i know it’s going to be really hard at first anyways. Not sure how my son will handle not having all eyes on him. I’ll try to update again soon!

1st Trimester

I forgot how bad morning sickness was. Most of the day I feel horrible and want to throw up, yet I have nothing to throw up. Tomorrow I’m going to try to eat something before work to see if that helps. I seriously was hoping it would pass me up this time. With my first i would sleep a lot and only worked part-time. This time i am working full-time and have a 2 year old to watch/play with. I’m so tired and just have a yucky feeling, not to mention i already feel like I’m “showing” I know they say you show faster with the second one, but I’m lucky my jeans are still fitting.

I’ve been trying to keep up on working out. That said, I skipped yesterday and I’m skipping today. I’m just not feeling good enough to do anything at the moment.

 

How far along? 6 weeks, 5 days
Total weight gain: Not sure, last time i weighed i was 163 which is kinda normal for me. Very bloated!
Maternity clothes? No, but i am lucky that my jeans still fit.
Stretch marks? No new ones yet.
Sleep: I enjoy my sleep. I do find myself waking up and tossing and turning.
Best moment this week: I don’t have one.
Miss Anything? Feeling like myself
Movement: No
Food cravings: One day my manager got himself McDs, it smelled sooo good! I had to have it once i got out of work. Nothing else really.
Anything making you queasy or sick: morning sickness is hitting hard, but no smells yet.
Have you started to show yet? I feel huge already
Gender: Way too soon. My husband andย  I picked some names.
Labor Signs: No
Symptoms: Morning sickness, tired, very little body pains
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On, for now, this is not going to last.
Happy or Moody most of the time: moody
Looking forward to: I canceled my first appt. on March 1st due to finding another Ob that will take my insurance at work. My first appt. will be March 22nd. I have 5 pages of paperwork to fill out before then.

Baby #2

It’s funny how i just wrote that post on the 8th about talking about baby #2 with my husband. I got a positive pregnancy test on Friday (2-19). I’m 4 weeks,2 days pregnant. I’m due October 29th. Just made my first doctors appointment for March 1st. Hoping for the best. I have been very sleepy, some cramps & back pain, but nothing horrible. Fingers crossed for a healthy baby.

Edit: found this from the last time i was pregnant, so thought I’d keep track again.

How far along? 4 weeks, 2 days
Total weight gain: Hoping none yet, but I’m very bloated
Maternity clothes? No…and i hope not for awhile
Stretch marks? No, I plan on using bio oil again.
Sleep: I’m sleeping on my back as much as i can now, sometimes it gets uncomfortable, which is crazy that I’m feeling like that already.
Best moment this week: Finding out i was pregnant. I did make the mistake of testing right before work one morning and kinda freaking out cause the line was light & the lights in my bathroom weren’t helping it.
Miss Anything? Not yet.
Movement: Nope, too soon
Food cravings: spicy food, anything i can dip my food in.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not yet, I hope that holds off for awhile
Have you started to show yet? I feel like i am…a lot of bloat
Gender: My husband wants a girl real bad, I also would, but either one is fine by me as long as it’s not twins.
Labor Signs: Hell no
Symptoms: Very tired, headache, cramps and I’ve had some back pain. Not enough to be worried.
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: moody/emotional
Looking forward to: My first doctors appointment on March 1st. Hoping everything is okay, can’t help but worry since my first time getting pregnant was a miscarriage.
