Just thought I'd ramble about some stuff the doctor said when I went Wednesday...

I have a anterior placenta...meaning the placenta is on the 'belly' side(front) rather than posterior 'spine side(back)...which makes sense considering, I haven't felt the baby move yet (placenta is acting as a 'buffer or cushion' as the doctor said) so it's absorbing all the kicks and squirms...which also explains why my doctor can never find the baby's heartbeat on a doppler (as all she can hear is the 'swooshing' of the placenta and my heartbeat) which this is all FINE by me, that means I get to have ultrasounds to check if bubbs is okay! :D

Another thing she was talking to me about is the QUAD SCREENING...Which is a blood test they do to see if you are high risk of baby having Down Syndrome or Spinal Bifida(spelling?)..
The test is optional, you don't have to have it done, but it is done at 16-18 wks...

It gives you a 1:750 of having a Down Syndrome baby....just an example..

I personally chose not to have this done, she said there are alot of false positives that come with this test, I don't want to get a false positive and worry and stress out about it..I am going to love my baby regardless of whether it has some kind of defect or chromosonal deformity...

So I chose not to have it done...My husband was very much in agreement with me on this..

She said I should have nothing to worry about, considering I have no family history, or any warning signs with all of the ultrasounds I have had done...(even though this doesn't mean that it WON'T happen)

I'm not to worried about it too much though, like I said, I will love my baby regardless if something is wrong with's my child...LOVE is uncondiotional! 

And I'm going to give the whole story on the 'gender' thing I posted on my 15 weeks post....

I went and had the u/s cause the doctor could not find the heartbeat...
unfortunatley, the baby was laying face down, so we could not get a good profile shot of the baby...while we were patiently waiting on baby to turn over, she scans down to the 'bottom' area....

I hear her go "hmmmm..."  and I said "what do you see?" lol I knew what she was looking at, and I could tell she could see 'something' 

She said" okay, so, hypethetically, if I could tell you the gender, would you want to know..?" 
Of course, I was like "YESSSSS"..haha..

So she continues looking at differnt angles and trying to get a 'good money shot'...when she pauses the screen and shows me the baby's legs, one on each side, then she shows this thing in the middle...she said I'm 95% sure it's a boy...but it is still pretty early, and that 'could' be the umbilical cord stump(where it goes into the belly) and for me not to go buy blue yet...but she is pretty positive that it is a boy...
I agree with her...100%...I think, no, I know it's a boy!!

So we go back January 12th for the final say!! I can't wait!! I'm sooo excited!! :)

Ok girlies!!! I am so excited to write this honestly have no idea!!!

I went to the doctor for my 15 week checkup...

Everything looked good...she went to check the baby's hearbeat...and what do you know, she couldn't find it...AGAIN!!

So off to ultrasound I go!!......

Get in ultrasound, and baby is fine, heartrate at 150bpm!!
baby was laying face down, so we were trying to get baby to roll over so we could get a good profile we were trying to get him/her to roll over, she scans down toward the bottom, just looking...when she asks "If I could tell you the gender, would you want to know?" and of course, I am like " YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS" haha so she looks for about 10 mins, getting different angles and such...

When she says, I am 95% sure it's a BOY!! ahhh!!!
She told me not to go out and buy blue yet, cause it's still early, but she is pretty positive!!

I've had a gut feeling the entire time it was a boy!! SUPER EXCITED for January 12th to know FOR SURE!!

I am so excited!! I seen the "bits" and I know it's a boy..I just know it!! :D

PICS FROM TODAY(only face pics)

looks like a little alien baby!! haha

15 week bump!!

I was sucking in!! look at that bump!! Practically popped up overnight!! I love it!!

Another view!! Isn't it awesome!!! (dont cha love my purple polka dot pants haha)

I woke up this morning and rubbed my belly (saying goodmorning to buggy) when I felt it was hard as a rock and poking out like that!! I was like WOAH!! It def. grew overnight!! haha :)

Will update 15 weeks after I get back from the doctor!! :)

Week 14!!

WOW!! I can't believe I am 14 weeks!!! Time is surely flying!!

Symptoms this week:
Little bit of morning sickness...(no vomiting, just nausea) YIPPIE! :)
Severe lower back hurts soo bad...esp. at night when I lay down..
heartburn..ugh..seems when the morning sickness ended, the heartburn started!! it truly sucks..I'm not much for taking Tums or Rolaids..( eating chalk..) so I just try to bear it...usually a glass of milk coats my throat and makes it better...

Thats pretty much it for symptoms...
I have been having alot of problems getting comfortable at seems I just toss and turn all night...The only way I can get to lay on my side(usually right side, I hear left side is better though) and put a pillow between my knees, have a pillow under my head and a pillow along the side of me(snuggling purposes really, since hubbs is out of town) seems to have worked last night...

Also, I do believe I have been feeling buggy only really happens at night when I lay down and relax...I feel sort of popping bubble sensation..(reminds me alot of when I was pregnant with Haeleigh) so I'm figuring it's little buggy poking his/her mommy hello!! :)

**I will upload a 14 week picture when I get the chance...I usually take it with my phone and upload it to face book first, then save and upload soon as I get a chance, I'll let you see my growing little bump!! **

So for the past 4 days I have had NO MORNING SICKNESS!! woo....

BUUUUTTTTT....Tonight, we went and ate at my in-laws, had pork chops, peas, corn and mashed potatoes...yummo!!

So we ate, and came back home...I was drinking a glass of sweet tea when I accidentaly got a small piece of ice...i started coughing....and what do ya comes throw up...and alot of it...(so glad I acted fast, or the laptop would of gotten covered...).omg..

So here we are 2 hours later and I've thrown up 6 times...omg...I guess all it took was 1 throw up, before morning sickness kicked back in...seriously?!?!

MAJOR scare today :(

I went to the doctor today for my normal routine 13 week was anything but normal....

She went to find the baby's heartbeat on the doppler, but there wasn't a heartbeat....she tried for 30 mins...and still no heartbeat.....I could tell she was freaking out...even though she was trying to hide it...I knew something wasn't right....

She then tells me that I have to go to the hospital to get a emergency ultrasound...So I am looking calm on the outside, but on the inside, I was a wreck!! Thinking the worst....(and to make it even more horrible, it is me and my husbands 4th wedding anniversary, I kept thinking how horrible it would be to learn you lost your baby on your anniversary....omg)

So I get to the hospital, and 45 mins later...I go into soon as she stuck that ultrasound thingy on my belly, I seen my baby kicking away....I have never cried so hard in my life!!! Just to see my baby, happy and healthy in there was the most amazing thing ever!! His/Her heartbeat was 164bpm..I also got some pics :)

There he/she is!!! looking soo incredably GORGEOUS!!

THEN...the doctor preceeds to tell me that I am severely dehydrated and will have to be admitted for 4 bags of fluid....great...This morning sickness is slowly but surely killing me :(

So I am finally back home after over 5 hours...I have to go back Friday for even more fluids...

Please pray for me and my bean....hoping this morning sickness goes away soon....
