Pretty Nervous!

Alright, tomorrow is the big day, well for now! I'm not going to lie, I am really nervous. I am afraid that it is going to be something bad. I pray that it isn't and that it will be controllable until after the baby is born. I am also concerned about the morning. I can't tell you the last time that I didn't eat breakfast. I feel more sick when I don't eat and that is what worries me. I will have to go for at least 2 hours without eating, so I also pray that everything will go well in the morning.
I find it funny, well more ironic, that this is God's plan. When I thought about being pregnant, I thought it was a couple months of being sick and then a few months of odds and ends and then the final months of being uncomfortable. Never ever never did I think about how weird it was to be pregnant but not be able to feel the baby move. I know the little bugger is making his rounds, but he is so small right now, it is amazing. Never did I think about random things still going wrong. I had a small round of sinus issues. Any other stinken year this is normal, but the great drugs they have for that stuff would pull me through. This year, I had to ride it out, no help from the miracle drugs. There have just been very random things so far that I would have dealt with in everyday life, but I really took the ability to take medicine for them for granted. So please, next time you are able to take the amazing medicine that will make a migraine go away within minutes, think of me :) Really Tylenol does not make a migraine go away as fast as Excedrin.
Well this just went into a really big side post as well! I will post as soon as I can tomorrow about the ultrasound. Please keep me in your prayers throughout the morning.
Have a great night!

Doctor's Appointment

Today we had another doctor's appointment. I really think they are starting to get to know me! It was just a standard appointment, except this time we got to schedule an ultrasound!!! The big day is June 12 at 2:45! I really can't believe that it is that close already, it seems like yesterday we found out that we were going to have this little one. Unfortunately, I won't be able to put the sex on here for awhile after that, but Eric and I will know.
We found out today that my blood work came back perfectly normal, which is good. I still have that stupid ultrasound on Thursday. I really wouldn't mind it, but I can't have breakfast before I go and I'm not sure how that will end up. My body is really liking the routines that are set in place and not eating for 8 hours is not part of it, but it has to be done! My doctor said that if the stones were bad enough they would be doing surgery while I am pregnant :( which is really not going to be fun. Otherwise, if they are not bad, which I don't know what defines bad and not bad, then I will have to watch what I eat (really not what I had imagined for my first pregnancy) and after the baby comes then I will have surgery.
Well that is really all for now!
Have a great night everyone!

Not so good...

Well, I thought for sure that my next post would be Monday after the doctor's appointment saying that everything is fine. Due to this weekend, it is different. For about a month I have been getting really bad pain on my right side, it is to high to be my appendix. At first it would just come and go, nothing to serious, it just felt like a cramp. I would move around a little and it would go away. Well, Thursday night I went downtown, for those who don't know it was Tulip Time in Holland, and I ate a lot of junk food. Most of which is fried and very high in fat. Since then the pain in my side has been extremely bad. Crazy enough, it mostly only happens at night. Last night I was in so much pain, it felt like someone was stabbing me in the side and no matter what moving around I did, it didn't get better. I called the on-call doctor and he told me not to go to the emergency room but to go in tomorrow (now today).
Today I went in and seriously the nurse made me upset. I was telling her the story and the history of the pain. She looks at me and says "Well, it says here your last appointment was 3 weeks ago. If you had pain then, why didn't you tell the doctor then?" I was dumbfounded. I had just got done telling her that it started off feeling like a cramp...just a cramp...not a stabbing pain that would come and go! Do they not listen?
Anyway, I am done venting! The doctor came in and felt around. She thinks that something is wrong with my gallbladder. I have to go in next week Thursday for an ultrasound of my gallbladder and we won't find out the results until the Monday after that. I just pray that the pain will be tolerable for the next week and that whatever is wrong will be something that is controllable until the baby comes. I really don't care what I have to deal with as long as it doesn't harm the baby. The doctor said that right now surgery was the last thing she wanted to do. I really think this next week is going to be a long one.
Just thought I would update everyone on this little detail!
Have a great night!

Mother's Day!

Well, yesterday was my technical first mother's day. It's really weird because I know I'm pregnant, but you can't tell. Eric was a sweetheart though. He made a card from the baby to me. It was so sweet. Other than that we just had dinner with Eric's family and then came home and watched a freaky movie. I'm sure next year will be better and more entertaining!! Next week Monday we have another doctor's appointment. Unfortunately it isn't the one where we find out if it is a boy or a girl...but that is the next one...hopefully! We have also decided that we are going to have a party to tell everyone the sex. So nobody but Eric and I are going to know...not even our parents so don't try to get it out of them. We are only inviting our immediate family, which actually ends up being about 35 people! After we tell our family, then and only then, are we going to tell other people. Which does mean I will post it on here!!! I can't wait, I really just want to know if it is a boy or a girl!! We are still praying for a boy. Anyway, that's all for now!
Have a great night everyone!

2nd Trimester

Hey Everyone!
Well I am officially in the 2nd Trimester!! Just as I have been praying for months (well about 2), I have officially gone 3 days without getting sick! It's so amazing. I have felt kinda funny from time to time this weekend, but actually getting sick....NOPERS!!! I love it and I pray it continues. My energy is nothing short of coming back, which is also a blessing. Today I got to work out on the lawn all day. I got fried, but I loved every moment.
So nothing but awesome news! (Please note: I didn't write that I had to work on homework!!)
Have a great day!
