10 week baby update

For those that receive the updates via email there is a video in this post so you will need to go to my youtube channel www.youtube.com/canadianlynx1 and look for the pregnant May video if you wish to check it out.

Near the end of week 10! Baby J is a prune, lol.

So not much this week on the baby prune front. All is well and running smoothly, smiles. The little one either has me living in the kitchen or wishing I had a pool, lol, and it’s not even summer yet.

This week I had to take the *horrible* sugar test that test for diabetes. Why is it I wish to know that every single time I take this darn test I always end up drinking the orange flavored one? i know there is another flavor out there, right? Right? Why oh why can’t I ever get that one so I could judge which is worse, lol.

After the hour was up I wanted to see what my weight was for the week. Since I was there, why not, right/ Well, guess what? I was 155 pounds last week. Just last week I tell you! This week I am sitting at 157 pounds! Can you believe that? I’m going to hit 160 before March even gets here, hmph!

Hey baby J I really don’t want a stomach the size of a water melon by the time April gets here!

So, Jerry says that by the time I deliver the baby I’ll be sitting at 170 pounds. I say I’ll reach 185. Another friend says 195. Anyone else want to take a guess? Remember as of today I’m at the end of week 10 and the due date is September 4th, but due to having a c-section it will be between August 21 to sometime during the week of August 28th.

The joys of videoing special fun moments, right? Well, if we did this right and it actually shows we decided to video me today so you can see how tiny I am. I’ll try and do a video every few months or something so those that can’t even imagine tiny me being prego and with a huuuuuuuge stomach, lol.

Also in the video I show one of the teething toys that we got for baby J. It’s the strangest teething toy I’ve ever seen, haahhahaah. No, I’m not the one that picked it out. Blame daddy! lol. So for better or worse, here’s the video!

Oh yeah, found out that Jerry chopped my head off near the end, ow! The meany!

For all family and friends that wish to send loads of diapers and diapers and um, did I mention diapers, hahaha and loads of other great things for baby J, we are registered with Amazon. Please shop here

Now unless something comes up with baby or I I won’t have another baby update until our next doctor visit in March. Stay tuned!

Anyone for a Martini?

Approximately 9 weeks and 2 days! Anyone for a martini? Baby J is our little cocktail olive this week.

Today we finally got to meet our OB and she seems like a very nice person and a no non-sense doctor. We did agree on me having another c-section so the little one will be evicted near the end of August. But of course that’s just approximate since it seems every time we go to the doctor the due date changes, lol. It gets earlier and earlier with each visit. Baby J is eager to come into the world and torment mommy and daddy, lol. I think I’m in trouble!

They want me to gain at least 20 pounds during the pregnancy. Hmm. I’m now sitting at 155 pounds. If you remember last week I was 152, lol. I don’t think that will be a problem, do you?

The horrible news for me is that next week, much sooner than usual I’ll be doing the sugar test, gags! Man how I hate that thing. I hope it’s not the orange flavor!

cravings
Well, lets add to our cravings list as well. This little cocktail definitely loves apple juice. I bought only one jug last week and um, lets just say it barely made it to the next shopping trip. So this time I made sure to buy two of them, lol.

Sadly, I definitely can not make eggs or I’ll be miserable for the next few hours, cries! I have no problem eating them, but I just can’t actually cook them. How rude!

Other than that the baby and I are doing well and the next baby doctor visit will not be until March 9.

Have a great night and see you at the next update!

unexpected exciting surprise!

Approximately 8 weeks and 3 days

Thursday I got an unexpected exciting surprise. We had to do another ultrasound to see if this time the little raspberry would let the techs see how things were looking. Of course all is well, smiles.

Did you know that as early as 5 and a half weeks you can hear the baby’s heartbeat if they can see the baby? Well, neither did I. Much to my surprise I got to hear the little ones heartbeat! I was soooooo excited. I wasn’t expecting to hear this until like march or so, smiles.

I made a recording of the heartbeat to share with the daddy and it completely made his day! Since we didn’t know that we’d be able to hear the heartbeat he wasn’t with me to this ultrasound so at first I was a little sad that he couldn’t share the experience with me. But then I remembered that I had Dropvox on my phone and it made it possible to still share this moment with him. If we figured it right the heartbeat is about 180, fast and strong, smiles.

So, until next time!

The little blueberry

The little blueberry. About 7 weeks and 5 days.

I had my first ultrasound on Jan. 14, but the little one didn’t want to tell them much. So all we know is there’s a baby in there, but not if it’s 1 or 2 or what, *groans*

Today I had the introduction doctors appointment. You know the one where all they do is double check your health history and check on previous pregnancies and make sure all is going well with you so far.

Cravings
I do have a few cravings and thank god they aren’t horrible ones….so far, lol.
ice cream, (pumpkin pie). You know the worse thing about this craving is that it’s for a limited time, WTF!
fruit, the little fruit cups of pears and pineapples, mmm
footlong hot dog, (from Happy Daz) Another bad craving. I can only get this when I have to go get an ultrasound. Happy Daz is not where I live, figure that one!
The newest craving is chicken, apple, pecan salad. I just got this salad tonight from Dominos and man it hit the spot. I ended up ordering another one and waiting for it to get here, lol.

The little blueberry likes to play with my thermostat. One minute I’m walking around in shorts and the next moment I have sweat pants and a sweat shirt on. Whew, come on little one, you’re killing me and it’s not even summer yet, smiles. Man, so not looking forward to that time!

OMG, this baby is going to have me as big as a house I have no doubt! All I’m doing is eating eating eating! I’m not quite 8 weeks and I already weight 152 pounds. Can you imagine what I’ll be like by April?

I am going to try and do some youtube videos so people and when baby gets alder can see how tiny I am now and how huge it makes me later, lol.

We’re going to do another ultrasound on Thursday afternoon and this time the little stubborn one should tell us something. If you hear me scream where ever you are it means I’m carrying more than one, hahahah! I’ll finally get to meet my OBGYN on Feb. 5 and I hear she’s very nice. We shall see.

So, until next time, baby and I are off to wait for food!
