An Update....

Last night I had another episode of pink to light red spotting. I called the on-call OB and she basically dismissed my concerns. She told me since I wasn't 20 weeks yet, that even if I went to the ER, they wouldn't be able to do much. So it was up to me if  I decided to go in or not. The whole conversation with her was 2 minutes and 12 seconds! I was so irritated!!! Brian thought I should just wait until morning. So that's what I did. Woke up today, and the spotting is gone... AGAIN! I really wish I knew why this only seems to happen at night right before bed. I called the OB office today and was told the same instructions as yesterday. The good news is they changed my A/S from the 27th to the 21st! So we will hopefully find out a little sooner than later how this LO is. I have been a couch potato most of the morning, but couldn't stand it anymore I was so bored. Came online to update and order myself lunch.... mmmmm, pizza!!!

If you could spare some good vibes, thoughts, and prayers.. It would be greatly appreciated. I am sure I am just a paranoid momma-to-be...

18 Weeks Starts with Worry....

Had a little scare last night.... started having light pink spotting again. And of course, it happens on a Wednesday night, and my OB is off Thursdays. I called this morning, and I guess she was in today (because she is off for the next 10 days) and told me to take it easy, drink plenty of water, and am on pelvic rest for two weeks. I was really hoping she would have me come in just to make sure LO is alright since I haven't had an u/s in 6 weeks, plus with her going out of town for the next two weeks.... but I guess if she is not overly concerned, then I should trust that everything is alright. I finished my work for the week, and decided to take tomorrow off to relax. So that is my plan. Brian and I are hoping to check out BRU on Saturday to start getting ideas for furniture and to start pricing things out. We probably won't start our registry for a few more weeks yet. Below is my 18 week update.....

Names!!!!

Well, I think we finally have names picked out :-) Brian and I have had the boy name for a long time now. I just keep changing my mind on the girl name. I struggle sometimes because I want to find a name that doesn't sound to "kiddish" as she would get older. I think, can I see this girl growing up and still being called this at the age of 40+?  I had about 7-8 top favorite names.... and last weekend, found the perfect fit. Here are our choices.....

Boy: Noah James
Girl: Emsley Grace

I have loved Noah for years now. I found Emsley in a baby names book. I saw it and just loved the sound of it. Then I read the meaning and fell in love with the name.... "A gift from God." How perfect!!! Can't wait until July 27th to find out... Noah or Emsley?!?!

17 Weeks and Dr Appt Update

So today was my rescheduled appt from last week. I am glad that the orange glucose drink wasn't that bad. Now just to hope for good results! I was really hoping for an u/s today, but I guess my OB was the only one in the office today and said she was running an hour behind, plus had about 7 more patients to see yet before making rounds in the hospital. So an u/s was pretty much out of the question.  Brian was able to come with me this time. OB found baby's heartbeat right away.... beating at 160bpm.  Loved seeing that smiled on Brian's face when he heard it.I have also gained 6 lbs, which I thought my OB would be upset about, but she said it's a good thing that I am starting to gain a little weight. My A/S is scheduled for July 27th at 5pm. I can't wait!!!!

Maternity Clothes:
Yes! Just went shopping last weekend for shirts. Got lots :-)


Sleep:
Wake up at least once a night to pee, plus been sleeping with a pillow between my knees.

Gender:
Hopefully find out on the 27th. I've felt boy this whole time. Everyone around me says girl....


Belly button in or out:
In and it will probably stay that way...


Movement:
Not that I know of. Although I am not sure what to expect it to feel like. Hopefully soon though!


What I miss:
Margaritas! With it being summer, I would go over to the neighbors and have a drink while talking around a fire... now I just get handed a bottle of water :-(


What I am looking forward to:
A/S on the 27th!


Milestones:
Each week is one for me! I can't believe I am this far already!!! 3 weeks til half baked!!!
