About Me

My husband and I have been TTC for a long time and due to my endometriosis, it seemed like it was never going to happen. ALL last year, instead of ovulating, my body would just create and rupture cysts on my right ovary. In Dec I had a LARGE cyst, that would not rupture, removed and had most of the endo, that she could get to, removed. She then put me on a monthly shot treatment that induced me into menopause. I took my last shot March 5th and didn't start my new cycle until May 21st. I used a fertility monitor to see when I would ovulate and it peaked on CD 15 which means I ovulated on CD 16. We didn't think that we'd succeed the first try since the surgery and treatment, but God has been SO good and blessed us with a surprise. We are beyond stoked and can't wait to meet this beautiful angel that we've waited so long for. This will truly be a miracle baby.

Baby Update: It's a BOY and he's extremely active and measuring above average already!! I really hope he doesn't meet or pass my birth weight! I still hold the record in my family for the biggest baby, and I really don't want to beat it. LOL!

We decided on the name Tristan James and we can't wait to meet him and see his gorgeous face!

Another Update: My last ultrasound at 28 weeks predicted that Tristan will arrive February 11th because he's getting so big so fast. DH is predicting last week of Jan or first week of Feb. Guess we'll see!! We're getting close!!! :-D

Update: So I'm past my original due date BUT they are inducing me this Sunday. YAY!! There's an end in sight! Can't wait to hold my son!

My Birth Plan

I plan to have my baby in a hospital. I have changed my mind to having a drug-free birth, after all. We, as in my midwife, my mom, and I, have decided that it would be better for my health if I avoided an epidural and just had Tristan naturally. I would love to have him at home in our tub, but since he's my first child, a hospital seems to be the safest bet, even if it is on base. I plan to have just my DH and mom there and I'm going to try different birthing positions, hypno-birthing, and I'm going to teach my husband different massage techniques to use on me to help with pain and progression. I refuse to give in to pain meds and I've done TONS of research to help me get ready for the big day. I get more excited the closer we get. Here's to a healthy natural birth!!

Things are going very well! Got a fetal heart monitor for at home use (sonoline b) from ebay and now I get to listen to the baby each night. I need to start charting the heartbeats =) I hope you are doing well. Did your husband leave? I can't believe how close we all are to the second trimester! THIS IS REALLY HAPPENING!!! Any cravings yet?

Thank you! She is a hand full. I love my daughter! Her name is Trinity Anne! She is 3 years old! An my wild child lol! Yeah I have had dreams where I have the baby and it's twins. Lmbo! I know it's one and so does my husband but I told him and he was like that would be a blessing. You after having two babies past one at 16 weeks ( cord knot ) and one at 8 weeks. Anyways. I was the same way about everything is real as soon as we heard the heart beat. I think the ultrasound tech was freaked out when I started sobbing. I know one thing... I have never been praying so hard in my life. I pray for all the time that we make it full term but I try not to stress as it not good. So prayers for you and your little one. May god watch over us during our Pregnancy. Just know I am always here if you need to vent or anything. Well I hope to hear from you soon

I am sold to hear about not getting an ultrasound. It was weird fore because normal they want you to meet with the doctor and then get one. I didnt complain. I was happy to see my dinosaur as my daughter is now calling the baby. She was calling the baby milk lol. An I hope you next appointment is the ultrasound. I go back August 13(I think) and then one the 20th for a genetic scan of the baby. My doctor wants to make sure that everything is growing and the baby is healthy. An I have to go for bloom work this morning. An then I am coming home to relax. I hope you are doing good and let's keep in contact. Talk to you later

Hey my appointment went amazingly. I am only 7 weeks me 1 day! So my due date changed to March 3rd. Like I told someone my daughter came a week early. So this one might too. I am sure everything will be good and I will be praying. I hope you have a healthy and happy 9 months. Well please let me know how it goes tomorrow. Sending good thoughts and lots of sticky baby dust

I was pretty nervous at my first prenatal too. I have no clue why I was so nervous. It was like I was afraid they were going to say "false alarm" or something lol. I'm sure all will be fine with your appointment specially where you are having symptoms. M/S and symptoms mean healthy pregnancy!! Good luck and let me know how it goes.
