Thank you!

Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!!!!!

Thank you for still having a heartbeat.  I have been just sick with worry the past few days just wondering if you were still alive in there.  But you are, and I'm so happy!

You were pretty active, too!  Flipping around and punching, even giving us the loser sign on your forehead.

And the tech gave a guess, just for fun, that you're going to be a girl, but I'm not counting my chickens just yet.  I still think you might be a little boy.  Either way, baby, I love you whole heartedly.

Tech also told us that since the placenta is up top-ish that instead of kicking and punching me, you'll be punching that, ha ha.  Don't be too hard on your placenta, little one, you'll need that for a little while.

As always, I love you and I'm so happy you're doing well!

A Nerve Wracking Appointment


You are just over 13 weeks today, and we had our monthly checkup.  Mommy is giving you plenty of room to roam around in there (not by choice), but you're taking advantage of it.

I need to be able to hear your heartbeat, this is too much for me to take.  Since they couldn't find you we have to go back in two weeks to make sure you're still hanging in there.

Please still be in there.  You're making me very nervous and sad and I need to know that you're okay.

Love you,

13 Weeks!

Well baby, you are gestationally 13 weeks old today, happy milestone-ish day!

I just weighed myself, too.  I've managed to drop a couple of pounds since I did this last and I have to say I'm pretty proud of myself.  I know I'm not starving you, you still get plenty of yummies, but I have been watching what I eat because I don't need a repeat of my last pregnancy.  Please be good to me, little baby, I'm only trying to do what is best for both of us.

Oh, and I apologize for the stress of this weekend.

As always,
Love you forever,

12 Weeks

Well, little baby B, you are 12 weeks old today (of course only inside me), way to tough it out with me so far!  Your next appointment is next week and hopefully you'll be a little more cooperative with your heartbeat.  Mama's anxiety can't take you being sneaky and becomming a ninja baby.

I suppose from here on out I will start taking belly shots.  I'm not too thrilled about this just because I weigh more now than I ever have in my life, and you big brother really did a number on mama's belly.  I'm sure you will too because we grow strong, big, hearty babies.  I'm fine with that.  You grow as big and healthy as you need to grow so I know you're going to be okay.

You've been giving me some pretty bad headaches, there, baby, along with some morning (evening) sickness.  I guess I can live with this as long as you stay alive in there, because mommy and daddy and big brother need you here with us.  Can you do that for me?  I'll learn to live with this as long as you just promise to live. 

That's really all I have for now baby.

Love you and can't wait to meet you (but not too soon!),

Just Stuff

Well, baby, you are currently 11 weeks 2 days in your gestational age, and you seem to be going a little easier on me (other than the headaches, if those could ease up that would be great).  But I tell you, you sure like to take up a lot of space down there!  I feel huge already, and although I'm too overweight right now to see it, I know there's a baby bump because I feel you stretching out constantly.  It's fairly uncomfortable, but if it makes you happy then it makes me happy.  You grow as big as you need to be to become that giant healthy baby that we will meet in March.

Not a whole lot to report little baby b, our next appointment isn't until the end of the month and you better have that heartbeat good and strong so mommy and the doctor can hear it.  Daddy doesn't work that day so he may actually be able to make it to hear you!

Keep hanging out down there, baby.  We're excited for you.  We just bought a stroller for you and your big brother to cruise around in when you finally come.

Love you.
