Week 10

This week was much easier than the last one. I'm still having morning sickness and lots of heartburn, but the throwing up is better now. I'm still taking Zofran to help me with all the nausea, but sometimes that doesn't even work. Most of the time I'm very fatigued and all I want to do is either sleep or just lay down, however, with my life style that's not possible. Within the next two weeks I will be done with the first trimester and I will begin the "easy" part of the pregnancy. I must say that although I haven't felt 100% well, time has been flying by!!!

Week 9

I'm now at the end of week 9! What a horrible week this has been! After being nauseous for about 3 straight weeks, week 9 was all about throwing up...how fun is that! Thursday and Friday were the worst two days since I couldn't keep anything down; I was even afraid to eat thinking that it would all come back up if I even moved! Thankfully the first trimester is almost over and I hope to feel better once I hit 12 weeks!

Week 8

This week was very rough, not only because of the regular nausea, heartburn and fatigue, but also because I had a very bad cold that kept me in bed for a few days. Recently I started taking Zofran, a prescription medication that my doctor prescribed to help me cope with the nausea... what a miracle drug!... it made me feel so much better....
I haven't gained any weight yet but my belly is bloated, so much that I'm already wearing maternity jeans since my regular pants make me feel uncomfortable...
This week went by really fast, I certainly hope the rest of the pregnancy goes just as fast!

Week 7

I'm at the end of week 7 and things have NOT improved at all. I have never felt this sick before and it is just killing me! I'm nauseous all day, every day and extremely fatigued. Lately I have been having a lot of nose bleeds as well and just a general feeling of sickness. I have tried eating saltine crackers, drinking ginger ale, preggie pops and everything you can imagine. I finally got prescription Zofran, which is supposed to help me...hopefully it will.. and it better be soon!
I'm already wearing maternity pants, simply because I could not take the discomfort of tight pants around my waist... it's all part of the journey.
My next prenatal appointment is scheduled for January 5th; hopefully I will feel a lot better by then!

Week 6

I'm at the end of week 6 and I'm sad to report that I haven't been feeling well at all! My nausea is almost unbearable and I'm so fatigued during the day that I can barely get out of bed in the morning. This has been a very rough week...
On the bright side, I had my first prenatal visit today and it went great! I even go to see the baby and all. My mom came with me and we both saw the little flicker. The doctor said the heartbeat looks strong and everything is perfect, including size and appearance. Things should be fine. My next appointment will be in January, I'll be almost done with the 1st trimester. I'm so happy today!!!

Week 5

I'm almost at the end of week 5 of this pregnancy and things are a lot better now. My morning sickness is getting a lot better and I don't get as fatigued during the day...
Every day we get more excited because things are more and more real. I still get very hungry during the day and I have to watch what I eat so that I don't gain too much weight.
Next Monday we will have our first prenatal visit and we're excited about that too!
I will continue to post stories about this pregnancy....

Week 4

The news are just settling in and we are finally starting to believe that we are in fact expecting another baby....
I haven't been feeling too well; I've had tons of nausea and heartburn and I feel very exhausted during the day..... all I want to do is sleep. Also, I have been very hungry and whenever I eat I feel heartburn again.
In addition to the heartburn and fatigue, I have been feeling very emotional with lots of crying and moodiness...not very cool!
I feel like my belly is going to pop faster this time around because some of my pants are already tight around the waist... I think I'm in for a long journey!
Today I was supposed to have my first prenatal appointment, however I decided to postpone it until December 1st, when I will be about 7 weeks along.

Baby #2 is on board!

Iggy and I are happy to announce that we are currently expecting baby #2. After several months of praying for another baby, God has granted us the miracle of life once again, I took a test this morning (well, several) and it was confirmed, we will have another baby in July 2009. The estimated due date is currently July 23rd, 2009, but this will have to be validated by the doctor. The first prenatal appointment is scheduled for Dec. 1st, at which point we will get an average due date and probably a date for our first ultrasound! Thank you God for listening to our prayers!!
I have created this blog to keep our friends and family up to date with the pregnancy progress. I will update it every week with a little summary of the events of the week that I'm finishing up... so if I'm hitting 5 weeks, I will do an update of week 4 and so on.. until the baby is here!
Enjoy reading and thanks for visiting!!!!
