Here are some pics of the house. They are getting ready to start the drywall. I wish they worked on the weekends cause we could be in that much sooner. It is frustrating to know that the house just sits empty half the week and there is no work being done on it! However, they have made good progress so far. This is now the time when things slow down.
Here is a picture of me at 30 Weeks. I haven't taken a regular pic this week yet but we did go to a wedding this weekend and I might post one of those instead.
Everything with the ultrasound was okay it was just the newbie being a newbie... jacka$$! At the time they estimated her to weigh 3 pounds and almost 1 ounce. My iron is low and I have been put on some pills. I am always tired and hence why it takes me so long to post. Yes, uploading photos and typing a blurb seems exhausting, lol!!! Not that it actually is, it is just getting motivated to do it. I have another OB appointment on the 11th and I might even have enough energy to post about it. LOL!!!!
I don't have the pics scanned yet so I will add them tonight or tomorrow. You know a teaching hospital is necessary, but does it have to be in my hometown? I love seeing the baby but when it is for over an hour and your ultrasound tech is a newbie it is not so fun. After about an hour of trying to get certain shots and he still wasn't successful he said he was going to go get another sonographer and make sure everything was okay, then he paused, then he got up and said "um, yeah, okay" and then he left. Mike and I didn't say anything to each other but we both had a funny look on our face. Then the "pro" came in and started to look around and doing her thing. She was much better at getting the shots but it was just too long on my back and mixed with the thought that something might be wrong I started to feel really sick. So I asked to sit up for a second and Mike asked if my back was hurting and I said not I just didn't feel right, so she had me lay down tilted to my left side and she continued. I still wasn't feeling good so she told me to turn all the way on my left side and I finally started to feel better. Then I asked her if she could do 3D and apparantly she already had and printed pics as well. Mike was like she just did that a few seconds ago. LOL! I said oh that must have been in my almost black out stupor! I remember her talking about the umbiblical cord but was concentrating more on not barfing all over Mike. So note to self - don't rest on your back since it does cut off most of your circulation while pregnant. I still didn't feel well the rest of the night and woke up chocking on my own vomit. I didn't feel sick to my stomach but I guess I drank too much water before I went to bed cause at 11:00 pm I woke up puking in my mouth, which is alway pleasant. I think maybe the baby was moving and that caused it. I feel better today but still a little off. I am guessing it is just the 3rd trimester catching up with me. I am pretty sure there was nothing wrong with the baby, it was just the newbie's inability to get a good shot, cause the other tech seemed totally capable and unconcerned about anything. She just asked the guy what he didn't get and she picked it up right away. I still don't know the result of where the placenta is cause they are not really allowed to say much of anything except the gender and what is what. I have another appointment booked for the 26th and the OB will let me know then. Hopefully there is nothing wrong with the baby and it was just a newbie being a newbie!
I know I missed 27 Weeks but the 26 and a half week one was closer to 27 weeks so I just thought I would let it slide by, lol. I was actually having one of those weeks where I felt like a beast so I didn't even want to do my hair let alone smile for the camera!
The house is starting to come along nicely. We can't wait to see even more progress on it. Here is the latest picture:
Last but not least, here is what I bought at the final days of the Babies r Us Baby Fest. There is still 2 days left of the sale though...
We saw our new OB today. He seems nice and so does his student although they disagreed on the position of the baby. We will find out who was right tomorrow cause we have another ultrasound to find out where the placenta is. It will be neat to see the baby at this size. When they turn on the 3D she won't look so alien! I will post again tomorrow and let you know how it went and probably post some ultrasound pics.
Well they didn't get that much done to the house this week, but the one next to us has it's first floor on. (It will be done first, cause the guy who bought the house draws up all the plans for the builder) Anyways, they are working on 4 houses at once so I am hoping for a little more progress this week. I can't wait till it is all finished! The end of November and early December will be busy for us and I got some more good news from my Shanny and have something else to look forward to at the begining of December.
In other news, Babies r Us is having it's baby fest for the next 2 weeks and I have already spent $400.00 and it was the first day of the sale, lol! My little storage area is starting to look like a baby store. This is what we bought:
The stroller was originally $300 and we got it for $150 so we had to do it. No, I do not plan on jogging, but it is so much easier to push around than a regular stroller. At this rate there will be nothing left to buy on my registry, lol! I still have to go to Wal-Mart and Sears to register though.
Here is the latest picture. I am starting to feel like a stuffed sausage! The humid weather did not help much, it made my feet look huge. But all is well with the world once again cause it is nice and cool today. I woke up and immediatley looked at my feet and said "aahhh, much better!" I am almost 7 Months and I still have a belly button but I don't think it can hold out much longer, lol! I think I am doomed to get stretch marks on my side, at night they are just so tight, and I don't think they will hold out for another 3 months.
Trying to get caught up on all of the photos. This one isn't great but atleast there are no shadows. Mike and I went to Syracuse on Sunday and we bought the crib bedding (that was exclusive to Babies R Us in the States, so that is why we went there). We also bought a diaper bag, some Podee's and lots of clothes (they had a clearance on summer outfits so I bought 12 LOL!!! They were all under $7.00 though so it wasn't too expensive. Here are some pics:
And in other news they have finally started our house. By start, I mean dug the hole, but atleast it is a start. Here is our hole:
That's all for now. I will and upload more photos of the house as it progresses.
Mike used the flash again! Oddly enough the only shadow that showed up is the one by my face to make my double chin look even fatter! LOL! Going back over all of the photos this pink top always makes me look the biggest. Guess what top I will not wear for pictures again?
Again I missed a week! Week 22 will be missed but not forgotten, LOL! We were too busy packing and moving. We are in the temporary apartment now. Trust me when I say I think I am the youngest tenant!!!! I feel like a kid again. I am not entirely sure that CaraCo didn't set us up in a retirement complex, HAHAHA!!
I saw the doctor on Tuesday and he said everything with the ultrasound was good except I have a low lying placenta, so I have to go back on the 20th of September for another ultrasound to make sure that the placenta has moved up and away from the cervix. In most cases it usually does but if not then I guess we will be looking at possible bed rest and/or a c-section. Whatever, I don't care, just so long as everything progresses normally and that baby girl is okay. I have to go in next week for my glucose tolerance test and I will let you know how that goes. I have an appointment with the OB on September 19th and I will be 28 weeks by then. I am guessing I will have a pretty big belly by then lol!
Simply said, Infertility sucks! I wouldn’t wish it on anyone. That being said, it has taught me a lot about strength, compassion and patience. I am extremely fortunate to have conceived a perfect, beautiful daughter via my 1st IVF cycle. I am hoping that we will be just as fortunate this time around.
