3rd Birthday!

Happy Birthday "M"!  It's hard to believe you are 3!  Grandma S's daddy and mommy celebrated your birthday with you yesterday.  We went to the Denver Museum of Natural History to see the dinosaurs.  You really loved looking at them.  When we came home, you took a nap and Grandma and mommy decorated the kitchen while daddy made ice cream.  you got so much stuff!   You kept telling daddy that he is going to take you fishing and golfing.  Daddy had been looking at fishing poles for you.  We were watching TV and a commercial for Disney (not sure if it was land or world), came on, you asked mommy if you could go, she said that you had to save some money and maybe someday we would go, you turned around and said, "Grandpa take me."

Pregnancy Journal...#2

Had an appointment (like I do every month).  The doctor said I've only gained 4 pounds and said you are on the high end of development.  I had an ultrasound done...I got to see all the major organs that the tech was looking for.  He said that you might be a boy.  He didn't sound too sure about that, but we'll be happy either way!  The more I think about it, the more I "feel" that I might be having a boy...boy won't grandpa be happy since you'll be named after him!

Pregnancy Journal...#2

Well, 1 day I think I'm having a girl, the next day I think I'm having a boy...Who knows!  Kevin's test results came back that he is Kell negative, which is good, no need to worry about that!  I'm finally starting to get some energy back.  Still get tired quickly, but not as quickly as I used to.  I went to the doctor on April 3rd.  Everything is going good, blood tests for down syndrome came back negative.

Pregnancy Journal...#2

I went to the doctor on the 3rd.  I got to hear the heartbeat.  It was pretty faint, but I was able to hear it.  The doctor explained to me what Kell Antibodies were.  You see, since I had a blood transfusion when I was 16, I developed the Kell antibody, which was probably given to me by the person who gave me the blood.  My OB doctor suggested Keving going in and getting his blood checked.  He went in a couple weeks ago.  We still haven't heard if they got the test back yet or not.  I'm a little worried, but not too much.  Kevin came home and told me his boss offered him a job in MN.  Which would mean more money and the cost of living would be cheaper, but we would have to move in July and I'm not due until September.  I'm a little concerned about moving during the pregnancy, but I'm sure I'm not the first pregnant woman to move out of state before her baby was due.

Names we've picked out are:
Boy - "N"; Girl - "E"

I'm still not sure what I'm feelings one way or the other yet.

Pregnancy Journal...#2

I went to the doctor's office.  I had a pap-smear done, blood tests, and an ultrasound (not to mention a full physical).  I got to see the baby's heart beat.  I've been a little scared since I was spotting a little.  The doctor said that there's nothing to worry about since we saw the baby's heart beat.  Do you know how hard it is not to worry??  Especially since this didn't happen with "M"!  I've been feeling pretty nauseated lately.  I know that feeling nauseated is a good thing since it means the hormones are doing their job.  It's hard to do things when you don't feel good.  At least I'm not getting sick.  My mood swings are out of control at times.  I'm always hungry.  I feel like I'm eating all the time.  Oh, when I went to the doctor, I got about 4-5 pictures from the ultrasound!  now I need to do is get a baby book.

Happy New year!!  Well, while we were in OH, I tested 3 different times, all negative!  However, I'm not scheduled to start for another couple of days.  We will see then.  Kevin and I just wanted to check while we were in Ohio just in case we would be able to tell everyone then!  Oh well, hopefully soon!
