Pregnancy Journal...#1

My 3rd doctor's visit was right before Christmas.  I got to hear the baby's heartbeat.  That sound is just so sweet and comforts me when I hear it.

Pregnancy Journal...#1

I went to the doctor again and had a pap-smear done and also an internal ultrasound done.  I got my first picture of the baby!  That was really neat!

Oh, I forgot to tell you about how we told our parents, for Kevin's mom and dad, we bought a sweatshirt for each of them (Grandma and Grandpa on them) and wrapped them up and gave it to them on Kevin's birthday.  It took them a little while to figure out what we were trying to tell them.  Then we went over to my mom and dad's house.  (Dad was already in bed) We told mom that we had "97 Covered".  you see, my mom and dad have had a grandchild every year from 1998 (with the exception of 1994 when Kevin and I got married).  mom figured it out right away!  She then told dad the next morning, they were very excited!

Pregnancy Journal...#1

I met with the nurse today and she asked me my family's medical history and Kevin's family's medical history (which we only know from what Kevin has had since he was adopted).  The drew blood and gave me books and pamphlets to read.  She also told me what I should expect.

Pregnancy Journal...#1

I came home from work today because I wasn't feeling too well.  I went to the drug store to pick up some sinus medication, which said that pregnant women cannot take this drug.  I thought I'd better pick up a pregnancy test, just in case...not that I'm pregnant or anything.


Updated:
WOW!!!!!!!!!  I wasn't expecting that answer on the pregnancy test POSITIVE!!!!!  :D

I'm surprised, scared, and excited.  I don't think it's quite sunk in yet.  I paged Kevin to let him know that we are going to have a baby!
I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Guy's office to meet with the nurse.

Pregnancy Journal...#1

I'm late (only by a day).  Since I work at a doctor's office, I'm going to have them draw some blood.  I've taken a pregnancy test, it was negative, but since I'm late (and I've never been late before) I'll have the blood work done.

Updated:
Well, the blood test came back negative and I started.   I"m so frustrated and upset.  I told Kevin that I give up!  I guess if it's meant to be, then it will happen.

One month past, well almost 1 month, and I'm not pregnant, I'm getting a little frustrated.

Pregnancy Journal...#1

Kevin and I decided to start trying to have a baby.  I will finish this package of birth control pills, then we will be going to Gatlinburg, TN on vacation with mom, dad, Deb, Nate, "Jb1", "Ag1", and "Jb2".  Debbie is pregnant now, I think it would be really neat for both of us to be pregnant at the same time.
