Im pretty sure the last time I had my blood drawn was when I started Kindergarden. I remember it perfectly, my mom told me if I was really brave and didnt cry I could go get some ice cream after. So we went into the doctors office, and my cousin Brittan was with us. I sat on the chair and tried to be sooo brave! I remember I got some tears in my eyes because it hurt reallly bad, but I didnt cry. Then we went to Thrifty and I got a scoop of rainbow sherbet, my fav. Brittan got a scoop too, even though he didnt have to get his blood drawn. Lucky.
Today I went in for my pregnancy blood work and I was kinda nervous. Greg came with me, even though he didnt even offer to hold my hand! It was ok, he did sit by me, but had to read his book so he wouldnt look at the needles/blood and pass out. Anywho, I was really brave this time too and it only took one prick. My veins are easy. Then we went to sonic! woo hoo!
I dont know if its a pregnancy thing, but lately Ive been in the "I Hate Everything" mood. I really dont want to do anything except go to sleep, or see anyone except Greg (lucky for him). I dread going into work and am so annoyed by all my customers. I dont even want to look at baby clothes or my size clothes! Weird.
Look my little Ziggy doesn't have a thumb head anymore!! And it has little tiny arm and leg nubbins! Last night I went to bed at 9:30 because I was beyond exhausted from my long work week! Seriously every day I get home from work and could just fall asleep, Only I was feeling really crappy last night too. So I drifted in and out of sleep until Greg came to bed around 11 I think. I got up a few minutes later to use the bathroom and could not believe how much pee I had in me! I felt like I was sitting there for 5 minutes straight! Im pretty sure I had gone to the bathroom like 2 hours earlier too. And because Im still taking medicine for my bladder infection it was bright neon green! Pretty cool. Greg would be embarrassed that Im writing this :-) Anyways I hopped back into bed and slept pretty good the rest of the night.
Every morning when I have to roll out of bed I feel like death, but then I eat a bowl of Frosted Cherrios or Cinamon Toast Crunch and I feel much better!! For like and hour, then I have to eat something else so I dont feel crappy again.
When I went to pick up my prescriptions the other day I was supposed to have 3, but they gave me four different meds. So I was looking at them and noticed that I had two for nausea, which I was only supposed to have one. So I asked the pharmacist which one I needed and everything and he said just to keep them both. The one I was planning on getting is supposed to make me really tired (more tired then I already am??). Then the other one is supposed to be super great and awesome and not make me tired! I was reading the label, and it says its for chemo therapy patients. I must look alot worse then I thought! No, I asked him and he said they use it for preggo people too. The pills are really tiny and it says take half to one pill every 12 hours. Thats got to be some potent stuff! I read further on the label and found out that the tiny bottle of 30 pills I got cost $972.80!! I only had to pay $5 for it because I apparently have AMAZING insurance coverage on prescription drugs! Thats pretty crazy to me. Ive only taken 1/2 of one so far and I did have a pretty good day that day.
Yesterday I had my first appointment with Dr. Baxter. He seemed nice enough, not like this other creepy guy i had seen a while ago. Greg came with me because we were going to do our first ultrasound!!!! yay! So we got in and had to fill out some paper work. I was really nervous to hear the heartbeat, I dont know why but I thought there would be nothing there. Also going to see the "women doctor" is never fun, and pretty uncomfortable for me. Luckily I didnt feel embarrassed or awkward at all, even with Greg in the room. I was more comfortable then Id ever been before, thats good.
So they did my blood pressure and weighed me and everything. I few days before I had weighed myself and was down to 109, lost 5 lbs since id been preggo? What the heck. I havnt even been throwing up. But yesterday I was back up to 112 so I guess everything was fine. Is 5 lbs really a big deal or does it just seem like alot to me?
Anyways, the nurse took us into the room and had me do a urine test. Dr Baxter came in and talked to us for a second and then left so I could get my bottoms off. When he walked back in he had a prescription for me for a bladder infection (thats why i feel like i have to pee 24/7! I thought it was just a pregnancy thing and I was praying it wouldnt last the whole 9 months). So he handed it to Greg and I was just like "wow you knew i had an infection before you even looked at me" thinking, he's pretty good! But then he was like, "umm no, remember you just did a urine test". Oh yeah! I felt dumb.
Next he checked me out, everything looked good. Did the pap and everything, which I hate. I hate the clamp most of all, it hurts! He was fast though and then I got back dressed and he asked us if we had any questions. Ive had a ton, but couldnt think of any while I was actually in the office, so Im making a list for next time.
Next he took us to the ultrasound room!!! That table had some pillows on it so I could lay back and get comfortable :-) And a flat screen up on the wall so I could see everything going on. They did the indoor ultrasound, I guess because the baby isnt that big yet, but they covered the "wand" with a condom, for protection I guess. Not like a special wand coverer that look like a condom though, a real condom. I thought that was really funny.
Then she found our baby and it was sooo cute and tiny!
See its just that little white bean in the black area!! We could see the heart beating and it was so cool! Then she looked at my ovaries, which are awesome.
It was so weird to actually be there, and to be the one who had the baby insde her! Such a relief too to see the heartbeat! She said it was really strong!
I was also worried there might be more then one bean in there, Bob has been telling me that twins do run in their family and thought I would have them. So I made her double check "theres only one in there, right?"
The coast is clear! Only one at a time for me!
She measured it up and
Offical due date: August 26th !
Just 5 days before I turn 22!
Im happy, having an august birthday is the best! It going to make for one long hot summer though!
My next appointment is Feb 2, and then a month after that one we get to make one for our 2nd ultrasound to find out the sex!! Thats not to far away!
