so here i go.
i wanted our children to be close together in age so tim and i decided that we would start trying to have another when caraline was about 10 months old.
well this was in july and this was the first month that we tried.
this was also the first month where i started to wean from breastfeeding and was completely finished by the end of the month.
apparently this wasn't a good idea.
i didn't realize what stopping on the breastfeeding would do to my body.
it was wacked out of it's mind.
i was very regular during breastfeeding, every month right on time.
then of course when we are wanting it to happen again everything was thrown way off.
i was also even more disappointed bc with caraline we decided we wanted to start trying.
so we did and it happend.
this time it wasn't going that way.
july, august, september.
my 30th birthday was coming up which wasn't making things any easier.
and i really really wanted to be preggers before my birthday.
so on our 4th month, 7 days before my birthday.....i got my POSITIVE pregnancy test!!!!
i went to the store today and picked one up, came home, took it and called tim at work right away!
i was crying, he was worried something was wrong.lol!
he was very excited and happy that i was so happy, he knew it was getting me down.
i am so EXCITED!!!! i can't wait for caraline to have a little brother/sister! she is going to be a great big sister, even if she will only be almost 22 months!!!!

4 weeks 6days today!!!!
3 more until we go to our first doctors visit.
i can't wait!
now most of our family and close friends know about the pregnancy.
not sure when i will post this or when i may announce on facebook.
we may hold out until we go to our first appt., maybe not.
my clothes are already fitting tightly and my tummy is a little out there.
would like to think it was from the baby already but pretty sure i'm just bloated.
but i can tell myself its the baby, right?!?!

6 weeks and 2 days today!!
the nausea and indigestion are coming on very strong.
and the fatigue makes for a hard day of entertaining a toddler.lol!!!
so yesterday i found out that my ob doc is having surgery this friday and will be out for 3 weeks!
of course i called the office first thing this am to see what was going to come of my 1st appt that is suppose to be next friay.
i am so ready for it. so ready to hear and see this little baby's heartbeat!
right now just waiting to hear back from his nurse about what we are going to do.
this morning i started to watch a baby story again.
i haven't watched an episode since i was pregnant with caraline.
it was the perfect 1st episode to start with.
a repeat c-section, which is what we will be having this time too.
and it never fails, the tears were coming when the baby came out.lol!!!

first doc. appt was today!!
7 weeks and 4 days along.
didn't see my regular doc due to him being out for surgery, so I seen his wife, who is also an awesome ob!
first we went for the ultrasound...
everything looked great. we could see the little flicker of the heartbeat, which was at a rate of 150!
we then went for my exam.
doc said that everything looked good and she gave me some scripts to help out with the n/v i am having.
LOVED seeing that heartbeat and hearing it! makes it even more real!!!
here is the first picture of our sweet little nugget

now 10weeks and 3days.
i haven't been on my computer in about 3 weeks.
well, i pretty much haven't done anything in 3 weeks.
the pregnancy symptoms have completely taken over.
zofran is now my best friend.
i do not understand "morning sickness"
i actually feel good for about 3 hours when I wake up and then it all comes to an end.
my sickness lasts all day and gets progressively worse in the evening, thats when the vomiting comes.
the beginning of pregnancy is so so so much hard with a toddler to take care of at home, after working my 12 to 13 hour shifts at work I am completely worthless on my days off.
I am so lucky that my hubby has stepped in the way that he has.
he is going above and beyond to help me with the house and Caraline.
so thankful for him:)
even with all the sickness and fatigue, we are so very excited for this baby and our growing family!
can't wait to feel it start moving and to be able to find out what we are having in just 9 weeks!!!
I have my next appt in a week and am ready to get to hear this baby's heartbeat again!
