Heirloom Blanket :) and being healthy! :)

Friday, January 20, 2012

Haven't been blogging or being on sparkpeople as much as I would have liked but that changed a couple of weeks ago. I was gaining too much weight. Weight that I know was not only baby weight. Having my BP a little high at my last doctor's appointment was a huge wake up call for me. For the past two weeks I have been eating healthy and exercising. I have been eating tons of fruits, vegetables and whole grains. I also have been walking a lot and doing prenatal DVDs. I have so much energy now and feel good that I am living this lifestyle for me and my baby. I want her to be a healthy baby, kid and adult.

Also finished my babys heirloom blanket. Took me a while to complete and my hands cramped up at times from the tiny needle and thread but it will be all worth it when she comes home wrapped around in it :)

    You are so talented! I love it! I hear you on not doing enough to be healthy. I was restricted to NO working out for the longest time, but am cleared to begin slowly getting back on track. I have no excuse for not eating right, but I'm working on that too!

    That's gorgeous! I've never tried crocheting with the small needles. I can imagine your hands were very sore. Well worth it though!

    Awww, she's so cute! I love how you only put the ruffles on the backside. Very smart!
What breed is she? She looks small.

First Completed Project for my baby-to-be :)

Tuesday, October 18, 2011

For so many years I have been sewing, crocheting, knitting and doing every other craft for my friends and family members baby's. I finally get to sew for myself :) I completed the Kimono Sleeping Sack and still can't believe I get to keep it for my baby :) This will be the first of many, many projects :)

I used the free tutorial from the Running with Scissors Blog:

Officially Pregnant! :)

Wednesday, October 05, 2011

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

So my original plan was to lose 100 pounds before trying IVF. I was told to get down to 250 before I could even try but wanted to go down further with 100 pounds lost. Plans changed when my husband got a better job but with different health insurance. His plan at his old job had great infertility coverage. So good that all we had to pay was co-pays. If anyone has been through IVF you know how expensive it can be.

80 pounds down my BMI was low enough for me to get the OK. My doctors were proud of me with my weight-loss and was really pulling for me to get pregnant.

My first IVF was a success! I am currently 6 weeks pregnant. I saw my little bean on Monday during my first utrasound. It is by far the most amazing day of my life! :)

Thanks to all my spark buddies who have been through my weight-loss and ttc journey with me. Thanks for all the positive vibes, thoughts, and baby dust. An extra thanks to my two best buddies Keli and Jennifer! :)


My little bean at 5 weeks and 5 days.

    So wonderful. Hope the pregnancy- 9 months goes well. Hope you get some good advice and teaching about caring for the fetus is terms of exercise and diet. Weight loss is not the goal right now- but a big weight gain is probably not necessary either.
