Ultrasound from 3/4/9. Better late then never!

Basketball and Babies

I have MSU winning the tourney. Lets just hope that it happens so I can officially beat Shay in our competition!

So, ages ago, Shay and I picked out names that we would want to name our little bunny. We have always liked these names and it was pretty much decided on right away that if it was a girl, she would be called ____________ _________ Goldenberg, and if it was a boy, he would be called _________ __________ Goldenberg. I love both names. Shay is 100% committed to the girls name. However, two nights ago he tells me that he isn't committed to the boy name that we had (and loved).

I took this opportunity to state my case on why we originally loved the boy name to begin with. It didn't win him over. I then proceeded to list names that I loved that he hated. Here is where it got tricky... He is now considering all the names that I originally loved and he hated!!!! I thought I had mood swings!

Thank goodness we have 29 weeks to decide on a name - even though I think we are going to have a girl- so this whole conversation is a waste of time, but that's just me.

Other then the above mentioned wrench, things here are still pretty good. I have a doctors appointment on Wednesday - keep fingers crossed that we will be able to hear the heartbeat. I am constantly on Shay's case about scanning the ultrasound pictures from a MONTH AGO.

One day, i hope to go longer then 30 minutes without having to pee. I feel like I spend so much time in the bathroom. I have proceeded to bring books in there with me. What I really need is to call Mom and Dave and see if they can send me one of the 30 crossword puzzle books that mom got Dave for X-mas for passing the time away in the bathroom. That would be awesome. Right now, all I get is Sprocket head banging the door until he lets himself in and then he sniffs around. YAY!

Oh Chipotle.....

How you used to be so kind to my stomach. Not anymore. YOU SUCK!

Last night Shay and I decided to rent a movie and get Chipotle bowls. I thought that I might be able to handle it this time around. I had had it when I was around 5 weeks pregnant and got so queezy after eating it.

After not finding the movie we wanted to see, we threw Big Bang Theory Season 1 into the DVD player, and picnicked on the couch. All was well until about 5 minutes after I was finished. The fear of the stomach turning made me rush to bathroom floor with my EMU Sweatshirt blanket and lay there. All the while, Shay was sitting on the toilet above me (not the smartest place to sit) and Sprocket curled up next to my head.

I am such a wuss! I didn't get sick but I will NEVER eat Chipotle again while pregnant.

Otherwise, I have been feeling great. No bleeding, no cramps, nothing.

My amazing Auntie Cathy sent me this wonderful pregnancy journal. I have actually been looking everywhere for one that I liked and couldn't find one. The one she sent me had everything that I was looking for!

I am still harping on Shay to scan the ultrasound pics so I can put them up. I am also still harping on him to work on the damn wedding pictures. Boys!

I spent the weekend in bed

Yep, you read that right. I spent 90% of my weekend relaxing in my bed or on the couch. It was amazing to not have to get up and do ANYTHING! Did not cook, did not answer my phone (for almost 3 days now), did not have to wake up early to take out Sprocket. DID NOTHING

The highlight of the weekend....... Shay cleaned the whole house! Hands down best weekend ever!

I will be much happier when the first trimester is over. I miss having the energy to do stuff, but at the same time, I haven't been able to be lazy like this in forever.

Just thought I would share the lazyness!

Oh, and I feel a lot better. I prefer to not to talk about it anymore as it's now in the past. On to bigger and better things!

Let me start out by saying....

I am okay.

Shay and I decided to take a spur of the moment tour of our local ER last night. I had some heavy bleeding and completely freaked out.

They did blood work, an ultrasound, and a quick internal.

The blood work - I blacked out. Could hear everyone around me and talk to them, just felt like I was in a cave with blackness creeping in on the sides. They got me water and juice and I was fine.

The ultrasound- We saw the baby and the heart beating 136 times a minute. The doctor said that was good.

The quick internal- after waiting for the doctor for 5 hours and 25 minutes, he FINALLY decided to show up. Put some gloves on, felt that my cervix was closed and was done.

As of right now everyone and everything is fine. I have to take it easy for a few days and if the bleeding decides to rear its ugly head again, I am to call my OB immediately.

All in all the bleeding stopped less then 2 hours after it started. It was more of a cautionary thing to go to the ER. Probably cost us an arm and a leg but its better to be safe then sorry.

I will post some ultrasound pictures from my doctors appointment the day before when Shay gets them scanned into the computer.

Until then: Think good thoughts!
