14 Weeks 4 Days

Hubs and I had a great Memorial Day weekend. We headed up to his parent's cabin Friday night and stayed until Sunday afternoon. Went fishing, relaxed, and had a nice weekend to ourselves.

I got sick for the very first time Sunday morning!!! It may sound weird, but I was actually excited that I had full blown morning sickness! :D Haha.. I know, I'm weird!!

I have another doctor appointment this coming Monday; just a normal checkup. I can't wait to hear little bean's heartbeat again! Then after that appointment I will be setting up the ultrasound to find out what we are having! Yay!!! I can't wait!!!

13 Weeks 4 Days

I swear I was loosing my mind last night until I talked with other women about it. But I felt baby move for the first time!!! I thought it was too early because from everything I've read and from what the doctors have said, it wouldn't be until 16-18 weeks before you'd feel baby!!! I was laying in bed and all of a sudden felt like a kernel of popcorn popping! It actually surprised me!!! :D It was so cool to be able to feel though!!!

Future Content Warning

As a woman who struggled to conceive for over three years, I understand the hurt of seeing someone posting about their pregnancy. I've been trying to keep things minimal, and will try to do so in the future. However, I will still be posting and if that bothers some of you, I'm sorry...

"Are you mom enough?" I've been seeing the new Time magazine cover all over the net, news, and Facebook. I wanted to give my opinion on it...

I agree that breast feeding is the best for your baby. However....I do NOT agree with breast feeding past two years old. If your child can tell you what he/she wants, and it's breast, that's not right.... I think a better option if you want to breast feed past two would be pumping and putting it in a sippy cup. I feel that it could lead to physiological problems for the child later in life (if breast feeding at four, five, or later because they will have the memory) and can lead to clingy children. All animals get weaned, and it's no different for people. I just think beyond two, actual breast feeding is a little much. What do you guys think? Please leave me comments on your opinions! :-)

11 Weeks 4 Days

I had a doctor appointment yesterday :-) Everything is fantastic! She used a doppler to listen to baby's heartbeat. Its still in the 160's! I recorded it on my phone and I could honestly listen to it all day <3 It's the craziest feeling...knowing that there is a little baby growing, finally, after all we've been through. I wouldn't trade all the sickness and doctors appointments for anything in the world! I can't wait to meet our little one!!!

ER Trip

Last night at around 8pm I had a big gush of pink tinted hubby and I rushed to the ER. They did a bunch of bloodwork and everything else. Also had an ultrasound, and although they wouldn't turn the sound on to hear baby's heartbeat, we saw it strong on the screen. He/she was dancing around like crazy <3 The doctor said that everything looks fine for now....but he said that 50% of women have normal rest of their pregnancies and 50% end up miscarrying now it's a waiting game again...
