My Pregnancy with Everly

By on February 17, 2014
I feel like I have completely failed at keeping track of this pregnancy.
Poor Everly, she is going to have major third child syndrome.

So first of all this pregnancy has been crazy different from Ace’s.
I felt so sick the first trimester. It was awful. It was that “forever feeling like I could throw up but can’t” feeling 24/7. If I could have just thrown up I think I would have been good but nope, my body refused to allow any relief.

I also gained weight right off the bat and had a belly. Not cool, Everly, not cool!
Thankfully my weight gain has actually been the same I guess I just gained it faster in the beginning than I did the first time and kept steady after that.
The saddest difference is I have gotten my first stretch marks on my stomach, sigh. At first I got one and it was maybe an inch and a half, no big deal. I was actually kind of like hmm this is kind of cool like I have one piece of proof of my last pregnancy but now I have 2 more under it and they are small so I am not freaking out yet but if these effers get bigger I will cry into a pint of ice-cream.

Actually speaking of ice-cream, that isn’t happening because I have gestation diabetes. I know, lets all take a moment to realize what this means for a hungry pregnant woman. I had such a sweet tooth this pregnancy, nothing like Ace’s where I ate more of meats and cheeses. I am hoping after this little girl pops out this is all just a sad little memory.
I don’t think much else has been different other than those things. I am not as big of a rush to get her here like I was with Ace. Ace was 3 weeks early and yes, it was nice to not have to deal with those last weeks of pregnancy since it was a horribly hot summer, it was still rough having a baby who was just not ready to be here.

I can see a huge difference in Ace’s personality when he was a newborn and Ashlyn’s who was born right on her due date. I know they are two different babies but I think because he had a few issues those 3 weeks or even maybe another week or two would have done him some good.
I am also not ready to have Ashlyn share me. She is such an incredible baby and I know she will adjust really well but I still love being able to just cuddle her all day while Ace is at school and not have anyone else there to distract me from that.

So that is pretty much my summary of this pregnancy. Hopefully there isn’t anything too exciting that goes on from here on out.
Were your pregnancies different or the same?

10 week update

By on January 9, 2011

How far along? 10 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: 2lbs

10 weeks
9 weeks

Maternity clothes? Bought jeans but haven’t worn them yet.
Stretch marks? Nope
Sleep: Have issues with sleeping because I have a cold but even before that it was not the best.
Best moment this week: This week has been kind of crappy since I have been sick.
Movement: Not yet
Food cravings: hmm I guess Menchies frozen yogurt
Gender: Still think boy
Labor Signs: Nope
Belly Button in or out? Innie
What I miss: Not feeling super fat all the time
What I am looking forward to: Doctor appointment that got moved to Tuesday

Weekly Wisdom: Sleep now
Milestones: Making it past 10 weeks! 

Right now I have a cold and it is awful. Last night I was up all night with a sore throat. I only took 1 tylenol at 1AM then another at 5 and then went to the Minute Clinic at 9AM and she told me I can take two if i need. I haven’t needed to but if I can’t sleep tonight I might have to. I think not sleeping is making it worse. I did sleep from about noon to 5 today. Branden has to work from 6 to 2am and he just called and thinks he has a pinched nerve. Poor guy, if he is in pain something must be wrong. He never complains when he is in pain or sick. I am hoping it goes away or else we will be heading to the ER. 
I am excited for my doctor appointment on Tuesday. It got rescheduled because my doctor is sick so I have to see another doctor. Class also start on Tuesday so I go to the doctor then have class all day. I am not looking forward to that. I just want to hear the baby’s heartbeat to make sure he or she is ok. I also have anther ultrasound on the 20th for our 12 week NT scan. I can not wait. I think we will get a good picture of the baby. I hope we can find out what we are having. I have this insanely strong feeling we are having a boy so I kind of want to know if I am right lol. Everyone else thinks girl except Branden, he also thinks boy but both our Mom’s think girl. Either way we are going to be so happy. I also just want to start calling this baby a name and not baby all the time. If we can’t find out I won’t be to upset though, I know we will have to wait till the 20 week one to know for sure anyway and even then you can get wrong results. 
Not to much else has been going on just work and now school starting. I promise to update more!

Getting my blood work done and having good numbers. 

I went to the doctors to pick up another referral for blood work and when I was there I asked to see my results from Monday. She pulled them up and said it’s 2,261 so that would make you about 5 weeks! I said thats perfect! I am about that now. She said the numbers looked good and so I am praying they keep going up. Please let this one make it! I am going to call Monday for todays blood work. I just pray it has more then doubled since I got the blood work 3 days apart. Other then that things have been going well. No real symptoms except feeling tired and hungry.
