Week 17- It's a....!

Tuesday, March 01, 2011

Hi All,

Hope you are doing swell! This week feels like it's breezing by even though it's only Tuesday. I had a nice lunch out with 2 girlfriends today and it felt so nice to get out of the house for a change. Nothing too exciting has been happening here, mostly cleaning and just hanging out. I have had the worst headache now going on 3 weeks. It comes and goes but is here pretty consistently. I'm a nervous nelly and refuse to take tylenol so I'm toughing it out but man does it make me want to strangle people. I also woke up today with a lot of sinus pressure. My ears, eyes and nose all feel like I'm under water and I hope this goes away, I also have a weird scratchy feeling at the back of my throat. I hope it isn't me getting sick after the change from warm to cold to warm to cold weather. It's been crazy. Yesterday it was 72 here and today it was only 40. I want the weather to make up it's mind and stick to one temperature/season and stay that way!

Anyway onwards and upwards as they say. Last week we had out monthly doctor's visit and everything is going swimmingly. Blood pressure, weight and baby's heartbeat are all great so mom and baby are healthy. We also had an ultrasound so they could get a good shot of the spine and heart but baby was moving too much to get a good picture so we have to go back in a few weeks. The ultrasound tech told me I didn't have much fluid in me so it was making things difficult. You could see that the baby looked squished in there and was curled in a ball so the doctor has me drinking exorbitant amounts of water to make up for it. I drink a lot as it is but I think when I traveled to SC I drank less since I had less access to a bathroom. They say it takes a few weeks to get the levels back up so it should be fine in a few weeks. Until then Tom is harassing me every 20 minutes making sure I am drinking. Back to the ultrasound- the tech could see the sex but since we told her we didn't want to know she just wrote it on our charts. Well long and short of it is that the doctor got me so amped up about knowing the sex that I caved in and found out at the appointment that we are expecting a BOY! That's right baby Boy will be here in August and Tom is over the moon. He's already thinking of things he can do with him and toys he can buy. It's cute. I would be lying if I said I was thrilled when we first found out. I was really feeling that it was a girl so I was a little disappointed but I am slowly becoming more and more excited. It will be nice to have a boy since there are no boys in Tom's family so it was up to him to carry on the name!

I'm having a headache now and think I need a nap so I leave you with belly shots and ultrasound pics!

17 weeks 2 days

Week 16- South Carolina and Belly Shot

Tuesday, February 22, 2011

Hi all

Just a quick update since today I am 16 weeks 6 days and tomorrow starts a new week. I keep getting behind on these updates and need to be more organized so I don't have to do 2 right in a row. Maybe I will catch up this week!

Last week I left to spend a long weekend in South Carolina with my in laws alone. I left Wednesday night and came home Sunday evening. It was a great time and nice to get away from the stress of being unemployed. It also gave Tom some time while I was away to finish touching up the baby's room. It's so much brighter than I thought it would be but I hope that's only because we don't have the new blinds or curtains installed yet. Hopefully it will come together and be less offensive to the eyes! In any case it was a nice break away from home. Little back story my in laws moved to South Carolina from Chicago 10 months ago and Tom and I have yet to visit them and they never let us forget. This trip was a necessity for many reasons but it turned out greta. Thursday my mother in law and I went shopping at an outdoor mall near their house. She treated me to a bunch of maternity clothes at Motherhood Maternity where I could use the fake belly to make sure things would fit. That belly is great, it's hard right now because most of my clothes still fit and I hesitate to buy things until they fit. Here is a pic of me with the belly


After shopping we had a nice lunch and then went to see Just Go With It. It was ok but not a movie I would waste $10 on a ticket for. Oh well, you live and you learn.

Friday my in laws both took me to the Riverside Zoo which is a smaller zoo but great because you get really close to the animals. You can feed the giraffes and they have a room where you can go in and feed birds and they land all over you. I hesitated to do either just because I have no idea what germs animals have and I am a neurotic pregnant woman. In any case we did get close enough to the giraffe to get a good picture, what do you think?


Saturday we drove to Charleston and walked around the stores and shops and spent some time on the dock near the water swinging and talking. The weather was almost 80 degrees and so beautiful, I can see why people want to live in the south. We also did a tour of the Provost Dungeon which came highly recommended by the hubby(who lived in Charleston when he went to the Citadel). We also spent a good but of time looking for an ice cream place Tom remembered from his days there that doesn't seem to exist anymore. Oh well.

Sunday I finally got to meet Tom's uncle who lives in S.Carolina. It was the first time meeting he and his wife after 7 years. Yes Tom and I have been together for 7 years and I still haven't met his whole family. They aren't a huge family either, just 2 aunts/uncles on each side so it's kinda crazy. Especially since he has met most of mine and my mom was 1 of 12 and my dad was 1 of 6.

My sister has been here since Saturday morning. She has been hanging out and will probably head to Pittsburgh tomorrow or Thursday. We went and saw the Justin Bieber movie together and I am not ashamed to say that I love that kid, not in a gross way but just in a musical, kid cute way. It was a sweet movie too, nice to see a teen celebrity who isn't a total jerk. Other than that we got 4 inches of snow last night so we hung out inside most of today and I have just been catching up on house work.

That's it for this week. We are going to Pittsburgh again this weekend to see Tom's niece for her 5 birthday. She and my nephew are 10 days apart. I feel like I haven't had a relaxing weekend at home in awhile and I can't wait to have on again!

Last picture of the day is an obligatory belly shot- 16 weeks 3 days


PS the photos aren't great since they all came from my Iphone, sorry better ones next time

Week 15- Unemployment Blues

Wednesday, February 16, 2011

Hey all, happy hump day to ya!

Hope everyone is having a great week so far, it's already half over if you aren't! Last week wasn't the best week of my life but I am moving on and making the best of everything. Tuesday afternoon I was laid off of my job and was told I would know more one way or another this past Monday. Well Friday afternoon I got a call from a fellow coworker who let me know that the company went out of business as of 4:30 pm on Friday. They laid everyone off and closed their doors effective immediately. They did offer to help the sales people get jobs with the competition but essentially they left me high and dry. I was a little annoyed but I know it wasn't a personal decision obviously and I know that it affected the owners in a terrible way. Essentially the company is owned by a mother and father and their 2 children. The parents are in their 70's and unfortunately their house was considered collateral for the company and as it turns out they seized it as an asset. Those poor people have lost their home after 40 years. It's crazy and I feel terrible for them especially! In any case I know it's going to be ok and Tom and I will move on. I filed for unemployment and got my claim back already so I think if we can just tighten the belt for a few months I may just not work until after the baby. Right now I feel like I am trapped and under a lot of pressure. When I left my last job for the one I just got laid off I was so desperate to get out of there that I took the first thing that came my way. I didn;t love my most recent job but I adored the people I worked with so I tolerated the job. In my current circumstance I don't want to feel pressured into taking any job that comes along solely because I am pregnant and afraid no one will hire me once I start showing. I did put my feelers out to a few people in the area and they are passing my resume along so something may come of it but if it doesn't then I will learn to enjoy these next few months. My family thinks this is a blessing in disguise and all are very happy for me and think I should embrace the time off, so I am working on it, even though I am bored out of my damn mind!!

In baby news, we are actually 16 weeks today but since I didn't write this last week I wanted to catch up a little. We have a sonogram on the 24 of this month to see how big our baby is. I'm excited, I hate waiting so long between sonograms! Other than that I feel pretty good. I have been experiencing some major bladder pain but the doctor assured me it's normal and not a UTI(they tested me) so it's probably just how the uterus is pressing on my bladder. The only other thing I can comment on is my cravings. I eat very well 90% of the time but I am definitely having some crazy cravings. The most interesting thing is that it's for food I never ate pre pregnancy. I asked the doctor about it and he said most pregnant women crave what they normally wouldn't like. For example I am not normally a sweet eater, and I want something sweet every single day now! I have been indulging my sweet tooth with peanut M&M's and Starbursts but really any candy or sweet will do! Haha! The only other food that I really want is Subway. That doesn't seem too strange to most people but I swear to you that I am Subway's worst enemy. I used to do nothing but bad mouth how bad they were, and how unsanitary it was. However, for about a month now I have been eating Subway every single week. It's crazy! Tom just giggles and then goes to get it for me. He just says "Your body wants what it wants" and sometimes hes right!

Other news- this past weekend we went to Pittsburgh for my nephew's 5th birthday and had a great time. Luckily since I didn't have work we were able to get there around 1 pm instead of 10 pm like we usually do when we leave after work. It gave us some extra time to see my niece(7 months old) and both nephews (5 and 18 months). Saturday was spent with the birthday boy, taking him and my crazy hungover sister to lunch and then at the birthday party. Sunday I had breakfast with an old college friend who I haven't seen since we graduated and it was nice to catch up. Sunday my mom also had an open house for family to stop by. I forgot to mention that my sister who has been living at DisneyWorld since August came home for a long weekend visit and to interview for a job here(she got the job and is moving home to Pittsburgh this Friday, thank goodness!). The open house was a good time for my aunts and cousins to come over and see all of us since we all don't get home that often. My mom is a great cook too so it was definitely nice to have some good food. Tom and I hit the road around 5 pm so that we could get back here early since he had to work at 2 am. I hate his Sunday night shifts and glad they are ending soon. Today I am leaving to go to South Carolina to stay with Tom's parents for a long weekend so I have a ton to do. His parents think it would be good for me and the baby to get some time to relax since all of this craziness has been happening. Not to mention Tom and I still haven't been down to see their rental house since they moved in almost a year ago. They never let us forget it either but it's hard for both Tom and I to get there on a whim.

I think that's it for this week, other then belly shots which I leave you with! Have a great weekend and I will chat with you all after I get back from SC!




Normally I take my own pictures and it limits what you can get, this week Tom took the pictures in our new nursery. He got this picture of my looking at my own tummy and I thought it was cute!


Lastly a picture of me and my niece Alyssa

    I was laid off shortly after I found out I was pregnant and I agree for our situation it was a blessing in disguise! At the time it truly seemed like the end of the world, but I feel very lucky to have been able to take it easy this whole pregnancy. There have been so many mornings I don't think I could have made it to work by 7am.. if at all! I'm taking this opportunity to go back to school in the fall. Everything works out in the end and it will be ok!

    I understand the unemployment blues but for me it was a blessing in disguise. I am the mother of six children and my youngest is 1 1/2 years old. My unemployment gave me a chance to become very frugal and resourceful. It was a time that turned my heart toward home and family. I began to want to be home and not to return to work but we really could not afford it. So I began to pray the we could manage life without my income. I was on unemployment for a very long time and then it ran out and by that time my husband was wanting me home with the children too.

So with that please do not let stress overcome you, trust that the Lord will provide He always does. Enjoy your time at home during these special months before your baby arrives. I would encourage you to check out a couple websites that helped me in my home skills and parenting

And yeah, I think getting laid off is going to turn into a blessing in disguise, even though it may not seem like that right now. So, enjoy the time you have to rest! You won't have much of it once the baby is here!!!

Week 14- Registry Overload

Monday, February 07, 2011

Happy Monday All!

Hope your day is off to a better start than mine. For starters the Steelers lost last night, which was a bummer to me! I am a true Pittsburgh girl and therefore cheer on all my teams even the Pirates(who are lousy!) I was disappointed to not have another Super Bowl victory- they bring huge revenue to a city which Pittsburgh definitely needs but I was also happy for the Packers. It's nice to see a team that hasn't won in 14 years win, espcially with a young quarterback. I am not a sore loser and although I wish the Steelers won I have no ill will towards Packers or Packers fans for that matter. However, I am already ready to kill the Ravens fans in Baltimore. They are gloating over a Steelers loss and they weren't even in the Super Bowl. That kills me, how can someone hate another team so much that they want them to lose even when they aren't playing each other? That is beyond me. The Ravens fans here at work were gloating this morning and my reaction was "When was the last time the Ravens were in a SuperBowl or won one?". I think I woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning becuase I am cranky! In any case now that that's off my chest we can move on to baby stuff!

We are at 14 weeks and 4 days today. It seems to be going so slow and so fast at the same time. I feel like we just found out we were pregnant yesterday but at the same time I can't wait to have a baby bump that looks like a baby! That part seems to be taking forever, not that I'm complaining because I can still fit all of my clothes and haven't had to buy maternity yet but sometimes I think people are looking at me like "whoa pudgy belly" but they have no idea I'm pregnant. Oh well what can you do. This weekend was very productive. Saturday we got up early and went to breakfast- I love going out for breakfast, it's my favorite eat out meal! Then we went to do our registry. I won't lie it was totally overwhelming. I feel like we went through the list of must haves and asked "do we really need that?" alot. It was crazy because Tom was running around with the gun scanning things and getting into it and I was so overwhelmed I just wanted to leave. He could tell I was getting antsy and tried to hurry through but we still ended up spending almost 3 hours at Babies R Us. Tom definitely enjoyed shopping for the big baby items- monitors, car seats, high chairs, etc. He did some research and knew some good names and things to look for. Some of it was easy, like bedding- we chose 2 sets, 1 for a boy and 1 for a girl and we will either return one or purchase one before the baby comes home. Bedding is expensive and we don't expect anyone to buy both but we at least picked out what we liked. Car seats and strollers were also easy. I knew I didn't want a travel system because my sister's stroller is so heavy I can barely lift it. Instead we opted for a traditional car seat and a lightweight car seat frame stroller. We also registered for a convertible car seat and a jogging stroller. The things that really stressed me out were the little things. How in the world do I know what a baby needs, I don't have one yet? How do you know what wipes/diapers/diaper rash cream/bottles etc to pick? It was too much. I know we can go back and add to it and we probably will or add online. It's just a lot of pressure to be under because I want to make sure we get what we need!

Yesterday we got up early and went to a new to us church. Tom really wants to find a church for us to go to because it was an important part of his life growing up and we haven't gone together as a couple other than major holidays. He did the research and found a church about 5 minutes from our house that has an early service on Sunday- I like to go early because those services are usually shorter and less crowded. We got there at 8 and there were only 5 other people there. Apparently the first Sunday of the month is a healing service. It was short- 20 minutes but the only do an 8 am service on the first Sunday. The rest of the month they do a 9 and 10:30, so we will have to go back and see what we think of the 9 am service. It seemed to be a more contemporary service with guitars and different music. After church we came back to the house and started Sunday chores-cleaning- YUCK! Tom put the first coat of nursery paint on the walls while I cleaned downstairs. I also took a little nap with the dogs in prep for the big game. It was a pretty relaxing day and that's what I like about our weekends.

How was everyone's weekends? Any big plans coming up?


I will leave you all with some belly shots from week 13 and 14!
13 weeks 1 day


14 weeks 1 day

    Don't worry about the registry, you're right...the little things are tough because you don't know what you'll need depending on your circumstances. I thought I was going to be alls mart and prebought diapers so it wouldn't be such an expensive after the baby was born...but turns out my son was allergic to every brand other than Pampers and I'd bought Luvs and Huggies depending on whatever coupons I had that week. Plus I stocked up on bottles during a sale and my son never would take a bottle after being breast fed for 4 months prior to my going back to work. So a lot of wasted money. Some ideas for small things would be burp clothes, a infant bathing tub, sleepers, receiving blankets, infant toys, blankets in general, a bottle drying rack for either bottles or b-pump accessories etc. etc. All stuff that you'll more than likely use. I didn't registery for bedding either. I bought a neutral tan color sheet and used the sleep sacks per my M.D.'s instructions. I figured I'd just buy bedding later but I never did. Our son took to Thomas and a friend gave him a Thomas the Train fleece blanket and that's all he's ever used...or will use at this moment:) Hope this helps!

    Thanks for all your comments ladies. As for my arms since I got a few compliments, my doctor told me I should focus on arms for the next few months and that before I know it I will look like Michelle Obama- I can only hope so! The registry stress is starting to alleviate, I am taking my mom with me on the next run because she is practical and knows what is necessary and what is frivolous! It's crazy how much and how fast your body changes in just 1 week and baby too. Last week he/she was a peach and this week an orange!(size wise)

    Your tummy definitely got bigger in 1 week, or you are pushing it out to make it look bigger!!! lol!

I am also Jealous of your arms. I always worry that once I finally reach a goal weight and I decide to have kids i'll balloon up again, so watching you progress is actually relieving some of that future concern for me!

Just remember in regards to all of the baby stuff, 20 years ago there were not baby wipe warmers and fancy bedding and all of that other stuff, and you turned out just fine! don't stress!

Keep up the good work!

    Wow! You're tummy shows more in just 1 week! That's really cool you're taking pics throughout your pregnancy. You look really good! I love your arms!

As far as the little things go, I'd get things like baby wipes, diaper cream, lotion, shampoo that are made with gentle and all natural ingredients. Babies have such delicate and sensitive skin. Burt's Bees has some really great products and Whole Foods has a lot of other brands to choose from. I've seen Burt's Bees at Target and Walmart so hopefully BabiesRUs has it too. Also, steer clear from BPA in plastics (bottles, pacifiers, etc...) Look for brands that have "BPA free" on their label.

Your furbabies are cute!

Week 13- Baby beats

Monday, January 31, 2011

Hi all,
Hope your Monday is off to a great start! Mine has been questionable. For starters Tom's grandma who we call Nina, had a stroke Thursday night. She's 82 and she is crazy, but in a good way. She still goes all out for holidays and maintains their huge house all by herself. Up until a few years ago she was even climbing ladders and cleaning the gutters all on her own. Tom's pap has alzheimers so she does a lot for him as well. Basically she puts everyone before herself, which I think is pretty typical of women from that generation. Luckily it was a mild stroke and she was released late Friday evening and is hope recouping. We did get to talk to her on the phone and she is her normal self, told us they want her to eat less salt but she won't because salt makes her happy and of course asking how we are 100 times. She's a wonderful woman and I just want her to be healthy and happy for a long time!

After that terrible news I took a personal day from work on Friday and used it to rest and get some housework done. It was nice to sleep in(7 am- puppies wouldn;t stay sleeping longer than that!) and lounge around. I got to finish a book I had started and start a new one bringing my grand total for books started and finished in January to 9. My goal is to read 100 this year and I know once the baby comes my free time is going to diminish so I am trying to get ahead of the curve now while I can, anyone have any suggestions for good books? I like all genres and will read pretty much everything! Tom ended up working almost 2 straight days because of some big things going on at work so I was home alone all day Friday and he conked out at 5 pm when he did come home. I spent the rest of the night watching movies. Saturday we did random errands- home depot for nursery paint samples(since I keep changing my mind), returned some clothes and had breakfast out. It was nice to spend some time with Tom since he's been working so much. Yesterday I was wiped out, the last few nights I have not been sleeping. I can't explain why because it's weird. The first night I literally peed like 7 or 8 times and everytime I got up it took me forever to fall back asleep, the other nights it has been that I am restless and can never get comfortable or I have dreams and wake up sweating? Weird, I am hoping for a good night's sleep tonight because I woke up extra early to ensure I would be sleepy earlier!

Baby stuffs- Last Thursday we ventured to a new practice to meet our new doctor. I didn't mind our other doctor minus the fact that his office was really run down, far away and he didn't deliver at the hospital I want to deliver at. I got some referrals and decided to try Dr. Parshad. On first meeting he's awesome, very blunt which I like but also a little off putting at times. Essentially he said he's a very busy man since he is the only doctor in his own practice- I think trying to just be honest about appointments running late and what not. He does have perks though, like an ultrasound on site- at the other doctor I had to go to Advanced Radiology and wait for them to send results to the doctor to discuss which also meant I had to pay 2 separate office visits! Man copays add up and so do the other fees, so hopefully having it all in one will be nice. He is super nice, he delivers at the hospital I like and he's pretty young, so he understands my generation and what I am looking for. Some disadvantages so far- he tried telling me for my height that I should gain 40-45 lbs, which I disagree with but that's a whole different issue, he also likes to schedule births since he's so busy- not C-sections but inducements- I told him no and he said they can do it the old fashioned way as well! Other than that we like him and I think will stick with him. While there we talked about a lot of other stuff too- nutrition, excercise, birth plans, etc which was nice. There were a lot of questions I had building up that he answered and put me at ease. Right before we left he let us hear the heartbeat. It was amazing. The first time we tried to hear it it was too early and we could only hear mine and Tom wasn't there so I was glad he could be there to hear it for the first time. It made me feel like this is all becoming real!

I have no fun pictures this week because I am at work and belly pictures are on the home computer. Hope you are all having a great week

    Glad to hear you found a doctor you like. I worked at an OB/GYN office for quite awhile. As of 2009, the IOM (Institute of Medicine) recommends pregnant women with a BMI less than 18.5 should gain 28-40lbs. Women with a BMI of 18.5-25 should gain 25-35lbs, and those with a BMI 25-30 should gain 15-25lbs. So hopefully doc is taking both your height & weight into consideration.
