And I've got a lot of rambling to do but first let me say.....
12 weeks = 3 months, 3 months = first trimester, First trimester = YIPPPEEEE!!!
We made it thru the first trimester! Holy cow! Now we just need to keep it up!
We decided this time around that we would wait until after the first trimester to announce to tell everyone about our flowers. So yall know what means! We can tell people now! We are however gonna wait until after our next doctor visit on Tuesday...just in case.
But never the less.....WE MADE IT THRU OUR FIRST TRIMESTER!!
Ok now time for some ramblings to catch yall up with whats been going on with us.
So, last Saturday M decided to go play flag football with some peeps from the FD. She was given instructions NOT to get hurt. So what did she do? She got hurt. A little. She was going for a flag and got her ring finger caught in the guys sweatshirt drawstring thingy. Her finger ended up bleeding, swollen and black and blue and the guy ended up with a whelp on his butt from the thingy snapping back. :o) The finger is better now.
I twisted my ankle and almost ate dirt last Wednesday. I stepped out the back door in my sock feet and as my left foot hit the porch it rolled. OUCH! I was able to catch myself with the porch railing and door. I didn't fall but did a quick squat instead. It swelled and bruised just a tiny bit. It's all better now.
So that brings us up to this weekend. Yesterday to be more specific. Flag football day. UGH! Again M was instructed NOT to get hurt. And again what does she do? Gets hurt. Big ouchy this time. After going for the ball she came down the wrong way on her foot and injured it. After a visit to the doc in a box yesterday and an x-ray later she was told nothing was broken or sprained but that she needed to stay off it until Friday, keep it elevated, iced and take ibuprofen. It hurts. It's swollen, bruised and she can't put any pressure on it. So she's hobbling around on crutches. And what makes it even worse? She had promised to go shopping with me yesterday! What a way to get outta fighting crowds and spending money we don't have! :o) Oh and she was supposed to be on call this week for the fire marshalls office! Her boss has banned the fire marshalls from football. HA!
I think that's all the ouchy news we have. (knock on wood)
Now back to baby stuff.
I finally think my fat bump is turning into a baby bump! I've never been skinny...always had a bump but I think the bump is changing. I used to be able at least feel my hip bones when I laid down....well they are gone now. And I have these marks/indentions where I think they used to be. LOL I haven't been able to fit into my jeans since 8weeks but now my "big girl" stretchy jeans are getting snug. We've been taking belly pics since week 8 and we haven't really noticed a difference but I don't think it will be long now until we do. Oh and did I mention I gained 3 pounds this past week?! 3 pounds in 1 week! UGH! I know I'm probably gonna be huge and I'm looking forward to finally showing but my word! I'm gonna be really ticked off if I'm getting fat for no reason! :o) I know! I know! I have 2 good reasons but I just can't help but have that little voice in my head laughing at me cuz I'm getting fat. LOL My mom's already laughing at me and she hasn't even seen me!
Question for yall. When you were pregnant did you have an abundance of snot? This is ridiculous. I've been stuffy, congested and snotty since our first pregnancy back in June. I thought maybe it was just allergies or something but I've had a few women tell me it might be related to pregnancy. You know, of course, I googled it and sure enough I found some stuff saying that it very well could be pregnancy related. I called my OB and she said I could take sudafed or actifed but those things make my heart race. She then referred me to my regular doc in hopes that maybe they could prescribe something. I went Friday and was given amoxicillin..just in case it is an infection and also a script for some allergy medicine that I can't think of right now. Starts with a Z. Anyhow the doc said these were safe to use but now I'm scared to take them. I googled the drugs and some sites say to try and hold off on stuff like that until after the first trimester. So we're gonna run these drugs by the OB on Tuesday and if she has good things to say then I'll start taking them. It's just that I've been SO careful up to now not to do or take anything that wasn't absolutely necessary. I need this snot to go away. I can't breathe. It's really bad. My lips are chapped cuz I have to constantly breathe thru my mouth. My nose looks like dried up Rudolph nose and I should buy stock in some tissue company. The mornings are really bad. I sneeze like a dozen times before I get out of the house for work and then all my co workers gotta put up with my honking and sniffling nose all day. Where's all this snot come from? The only time I'm not stuffy is when I sleep. Thankfully! But as soon as I get up and start moving around the snot gates open. Sorry...I know I've grossed some of yall out.
I know there was more stuff I wanted to tell yall but my mind is blank right now. I think I need to jot down little notes so I don't forget what I want to so say.
Oh, 1 more thing. Not injury or baby related. Yall remember my non-brother? The brother that said M and I were abominations to GOD and that we were gonna split hell wide open and that wont bring his children around when M and I are at my parents. Well because of him my parents are having 2 Christmas' this year. One for M & I and one for the brother and non-brother. Sad huh? His loss. M & I will be heading to Kentucky December 5 to spend a few days celebrating Christmas and our flowers with my folks. I'm really looking forward to it. I hope I'm showing by then. :o) If nothing else, I know I'll have a turkey and pumpkin pie bump when we get back.
Bah hum bug to the non-brother.
Happy early Thanksgiving! We'll be spending that across the street with M's family. The WHOLE family.
p.s. Thanks for the 11 comments on our last post. :o)
