I should be doing homework instead of blogging :(

I went to the doctor this past Friday, they did not do an ultrasound so no picture to share. :( I saw a different doctor, Dr. Franz, because at the doctor office I go to there are many doctors and they want each patient to see every doctor there before you give birth. He wasn’t bad, answered my many questions and took time to make sure everything was ok with me and my lil one. He did check the heartbeat with the Doppler and we got to hear it. I love that sound, the most reassuring and calming sound I have ever heard. The heartbeat on Friday was 140 bpm. This made me and hubby concerned because the heartbeat has been around 170 but the doctor reassured us that the heartbeat will fluctuate throughout pregnancy because of different things, eating, sleeping, etc. Although we were told everything was ok, hubby was upset. He likes to see the ultrasound to know that everything is a-OK!

While I was there the nurse asked if I wanted to get tested for birth defects…this is something I am really having trouble with. I want to get tested because if we can prepare for something I would like to, but I don’t want to get this test done because I don’t want to worry the whole pregnancy. So I am torn and need help deciding what to do. Hubby told me that it was completely my decision because I will be the one getting blood drawn from, however at first when the nurse asked he did not hesitate or have to think before he answered “yes we want to take that test”. So I know he wants me to do it, but I am still nervous and don’t know what I want to do. I have a little while to think about it though because I cant have the tests done until 16weeks so I have about 3 weeks to think about it.

I am also torn because I have LOVED the name Savannah from day one and still really like it for a little girl, but I have been searching for boy names this morning because I have a feeling peanut might be a little boy. Either way I will be so excited, a little boy because I can dress him up to look like a lil man and hubby will be able to be rough with him (of course not at first) and play with him. A little girl because I have found SO many craft ideas that I found online to make for little girls. But like I said of course either way will be so excited to be blessed with them in our live. So back to the names, I was online searching for boy names this morning and decided I do not like “normal” names. I googled “unisex baby names” and added a lot to my list…so (for today) my top favs are:

Dane(Zane) Wyatt (hubby is not a fan of Dane :( )

Payton Reese (I know, TOTALLY not what I have been liking but I just fell in love with it this morning)

These names will change again probably a hundred times before the final name is decided on so I am not getting too excited about any of them for now! :)

Pregnancy FULL FORCE!

I am so excited to report...I FEEL PREGNANT!! My boobs hurt, NO food sounds good to me, if I dont eat I feel sick, if I eat I feel sick, and most importantly I HAVE NO PATIENCE! I am happy that I feel these things because to me that means everything is A OK with my lil one.

Today I actually felt pretty good this morning, no sickness. Around 8AM I started feeling the sicky feeling coming so I started eating and that was it, I ate every two hours until I got home, since then I have only eaten twice (in two hours). But here is the thing, no food really sounds good to me right now. I cant say that I am "craving" anything. I read these blogs online about all these women craving crazy things, but I am not craving anything right now. However there is some food I, for whatever reason, do not want any part of and that is MEAT! I know this is so weird for me right!??! I am like a meat girl I could live off meat, well pre-pregnancy, now it GAGS me! Tee picks on me and calls me a vegan but I cant help it. I think I want the meat, I cook it, it looks yummy, but I take a bite of it and EEEEEEWWWWWWWWWW I hand my plate to hubby and ask him if he wants my meat! I talked to mom about this and she said she was the same way but she said "trust me you will love meat again".

I also have noticed myself getting very impatient when it comes to my food. I expect when I say I am hungry, there better be food for me to eat RIGHT THEN! This is something I hate to admit but I must work on. For example, I am waiting on hubby to get home from practice so we can go get dinner and the wait is KILLING ME!

The bathroom and me have become BFF, all day and all night. Last night I finally got mad and said SCREW IT I will stay awake! That only lasted about half hour and I was back asleep.

The bloated feeling I remember from previous weeks seems to have gotten a LOT better. I feel like my tummy is bigger but I dont feel bloated, thank goodness! I talked to a fellow pregger and she suggested I drink more water and it would help with the bloating. I have tried to do that and it has worked.

So excited for this weekend and much needed time away! Hope yall have a great weekend and even better weekend!!!
