Pregnancy

jadedusoliel

Hello

I wanted to join this community because I still have friends from the birth communities I joined last time I was pregnant. I hope everyone is doing well and not feeling sick or tired.

Name:Wendy

Age:28

Due date:10/31/09 (it really doesn't get cooler than that)

Location:Portland

How did you feel when you found out you were pregnant?:Thrilled and terrified lol

How did you break the news to the other parent and to other key people?:Called and excitedly told my husband, nearly everyone else I told online

What are your thoughts about being pregnant and becoming a mom, or thoughts on being a dad?:I'm excited, calm, and scared. I've done the pregnancy thing before and have a happy and healthy toddler now so being pregnant up to the start of the third trimester and being a mom don't really worry me too much. However Kimberly was two months early and spent a month in the NICU and I'm scared of going through that again.

What things are you looking forward to after the birth?:After the birth? I don't know really because most of what I focus on is getting through the pregnancy

Other children's names/ages:Kimberly Jade age 3

Type of birth you are planning (natural/medicated/c-section, home/birth center/hospital):natural birth at a birthing center or maybe at home

Any special circumstances surrounding your pregnancy?:Not that I'm aware of....

Was your pregnancy planned?:Yup

How long were you TTC?: A month and a half

Anything else you'd like to share: My first daughter was born 2 months premature because of severe pre-e. I had the most unnatural "birth" possible because I never had any labor and was knocked out when they did the surgery (I also didn't see her for two days after, didn't take her home for a month, and had to pump for a month and half before I could nurse her on my own-but at least I'm not bitter), and mostly this time I just want to make it to term and stay out of the hospital.

First ultrasound

Well, I had my first appointment with my OB on Thursday...I am officially 6w 5d!! I had a vaginal u/s and got to see my lil one=) It was the most amazing thing I have ever experianced! I was actually amazed that I could see the baby's heart beating<3 This appointment was only the u/s..I have another appointment in 2 weeks. Thats when I get to sit and talk with my doctor about the pregnancy and what I want and what I should expect and what not....I'm so excited. Even though I knew I was pregnant, it feels so much more real now that I have actually seen the baby=)

I will post again probably this weekend when I can scan my u/s onto the computer!

Updates, Updates, Updates! (final)

So I started my period 2 days ago!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D 

Omg, do you know how relieved and excited I am? Like so much stress has been lifted off my shoulder.
Although, I must say... it made me want kids. Just not right now. Before this whole experience I wasn't too sure about having kids, ever. I just didn't think I'd be a great mom. But when I actually thought I had a life growing inside me, I knew everything would come as naturally as this life did. So I trust myself and the relationship I'm in enough to know that in a couple of years I'd make a great mommy.

So anyways, thanks guys for all the support and advice. Thanks for not judging me either.

Congrats to all you new and upcoming moms out there! Just know you'll all be great. It's in our DNA to do this.


I'm signing off this journal now. I just don't see the point you know :)


Good luck, y'all.

Hello Ladies

Hello guys! I'm keeping my head up about this whole pregnancy thing, and will keep y'all informed.


But I have a question that could not be related to pregnancy but could be...


I've heard that during pregnancy you tend to have nightmares. It usually consist of you labor or the baby in some way. But for the past couple of weeks, I've been having nightmares of me at my childhood house. It's broken down, no electricity or running water, I'm usually there at night so it's sooo creepy. I always hated that house and knew it was haunted(I saw things there as a little kid), but I've never thought or dreamed of going back. In these dreams I see dead people and I'm all alone. It's just crazy. I'm not a kid either. I'm me now. I just don't understand why I would be having these dreams just out of no where...
