first ultrasound scheduled! sooo excited....

So I just called the hospital a moment ago to book the ultrasound! Sooo excited especially since we get to go this friday! I was thinking I would have to wait a few weeks at least but nope. She was like when did you want to come in? I was like doesn't really matter :). So she was like how is Oct 1st at 2:30. I was like thinking HOLY CRAP that's this friday! Usually when you book anything in the hospital it takes at least a few weeks to get an appointment. So I was like suree or at least I started to then I was like oh anything earlier since I work 4-12. So she booked me for the same day at 9:30 am! I can't wait. I emailed Chris but he hasn't replied as of yet. :) That means we potentionally can find out of it's a boy or a girl this friday!!! Our little Cashew will be so cute on the monitor! I can't wait to see him or her!! This just makes the rest of the week standable (the at work part) since I have something to look forward to now :)

doc appointment..

Friday the 24th we went home for my doc appointment in the morning. We were late getting there, only about 10 mins, but it still stressed me out a bit. Chris dropped me off and then went to park the car. I sat in the waiting room for a few mins before she sent me to the other room. I believe she took my weight again and as usually I had to give a urine sample. Chris finally came in. I was worried that he wouldn't get into my room before the doctor appeared but that didn't happen. Doctor didn't get to us until almost 11:30 but i'm assuming it's cause we were late.

He came in and checked my blood pressure, which seemed to be fine again. I mentioned my chest thing and he said as long as it doesn't happen a bunch in a row it's okay. I guess it's normal for your heart to skip a beat or whatever it is doing if it's even that and not gas ( I still don't know and it's annoying and scares the crap out of me every time it happens!) Then he checked baby's heart beat again. So we got to hear the heart beat again. :) It was a pretty standard check up I guess. He gave me the forms for the ultrasound and said it would be good to have that done before we see each other next but really not that important if we can't. He wasn't sure how long it would take us to get in to get it done. He also gave me a form to get my thyroid level checked again. Seriously my last hope of whatever is going on, that it has to do with my thyroid. It's been going on since Chris had to rush me to the hospital about 3-4 years ago because my heart beat went out of wake and they had to put me out and use the paddles on me to get it into a proper rhythm again.  Scary shite! Out of all the tests I have had done it's the only one that has been wonky and keeps changing. So we will see what it's level is at next time I see the doctor. Although if that's the case I'm not looking forward to possibly taking medication for the rest of my life. Not to mention sometimes that medication makes it impossible for one to lose weight but soo very easy to gain!

It's handy that the blood testing place is literally right next door to doctors office. So it's just a matter of going in there and getting it done. It's so much easier to do it there then up here. Since it costs like 4-6 bucks to get out of the parking lot here. We didn't go in right away because I was so tired and Chris wasn't feeling the greatest that we went back to moms house for a bit to relax. The blood place was open till 4 so we went back at 3 to get it checked. It was confusing because before I saw a sign that said on fridays it was open to 4 but Chris saw one that said 3. When we went back there the sign that I saw was gone and the one that said it closed at 3 was there instead. So I was freaking out a little. It was 10 to 3 but I finally decided that I was going in anyways. If they couldn't take me because it was to close to closing they would tell me. I'm glad that I went in anyways because someone came in after me and asked if they were still taking people. She said yep that the new hours that are on the door were starting next week. I requested to lie down since sometimes when blood is taking, especially more then one vial, I always feel like I am going to pass out. She said it might be a bit of a wait then since there were to tests before me that needed that room. I was like oh nevermind it's only one vial I will just tough it out. It wasn't that bad. The person who did it got my vein on the first try , I just didn't watch and I was okay. I think the time before when I had to have like 5-6 vials she had a hell of a hard time getting my vein and poked me about 4 times before she got it. Then after what seemed like a year, she told me I stopped bleeding and she only had 2.5 vials filled. OMG that was horrible!! I was ready to lie on the floor and pass out. I never felt like that before! I was like sweating buckets and so light headed. I don't get it really. It's not like I can feel the blood coming out of my arm! Oh well. So I am glad that that didn't happen this time. I can't believe how fast time is passing, even though at the same time it seems like its taking forever!

boo to work :( stressed...

It's almost time to go to work again! :( About 3 more months-ish, then I can hopefully go on mat leave! :)

I told a co-worker that I was prego on Wednesday on one of our breaks. She was like 'woahhh that's weird' and was telling me that she said the other night when we were both on autos she was thinking that maybe I was prego or wondering if I was because my belly was a bit plumper then it was when she started. She was like you were fairly skinny when I started here and I was thinking that maybe you were and for you to tell me that now that's just weird. lol then her son came in who also works with us and she told him. So yesterday when we were waiting at the punch clock to find out what machine we were running that night she came up to me and asked if I was four weeks or four months along. She was like her and her son had been arguing about it all day he said I was four weeks and she said I was four months. I forget what she would have to do if she was wrong but she told him that if she was right he would have to walk home lol. So she rubbed it in his face when she found out she was right. I thought that was funny. :)

I haven't been feeling so exhausted as of late which is good. Yesterday I even worked out for 20ish mins. Even though I got up at 12ish and even made some spagetti sauce and spagetti for lunch. (Yeah I know a weird thing for lunch but my suppers are normally a salad or a sandwich) I think I found a vidoe that I would like to get to work out to that's specific for pregnancy people. The Summer Sanders one. They are not annoying and they are even funny so that is good, plus it has a workout for each trimester. So Chris was like how about you get it if you work out 5 more times lol. I didn't work out today though. For some reason I have been like out of it until 12pm everyday. I thought today I would be getting up early since I was semi awake earlier but nope. I fell back asleep and finally got up at 12. OMG it's FRIDAY though. But so much to do this weekend yikes!

15/40 weeks - baby belly

I'm definately starting to show now I think. Or at least to me. It might not be to noticable to anyone else. At least my pants still sort of fit. :)

is it a movement or am I just crazy?

So I have been feeling the odd twitch/fluttering in my belly and I don't know if it's just a muscle spasm or if it's baby moving? I don't really think I am showing to much. It's not completely obvious that I am prego although wearing my black sweater sure makes my belly look rounder :( I used to feel skinny when I wore that sweater! LOL not anymore :(

I have a doc appointment on the 24th (next friday) so hopefully he can think of something to do for the exhaustion. I need to talk about how bad it was before we conceived although it's much better then it was. I was also at that time not losing weight but that could be cause I was eating more then I should but still. Don't know what to think? I want to work out through the pregnancy but so far haven't since I've been tired or just don't have enough time between when I wake up and go to work. UGh I can't wait until I am off on mat leave. Come on december!! and come on Novemeber!

My baby belly still isn't that big although I am into the bigger size clothes again. Although I really should go look for some mat pants soon. At least a couple. I want to get the jeans with the elastic top thingy. But to have the time and energy to do so ugh. :)

I guess I should go get ready for work since its 2:30 already! :( I have been also having some weird dreams the last few nights. I really need to write them down in my dream journal soon before I forget them! I was having one today to I think but I woke up so fast that I forgot it almost instantly!
