Husband/Partner Felt Baby Move for the First Time
Last week he thought he may havery felt baby, but we weren't 100% sure, but he for sure did a little bit ago! So neat the difference from our first full term pregnancy to now what will be the 3rd. Loving all the movement I'm feeling <3

First Prenatal Appointment
So excited to go through this process again with my lovely midwives ? I went into my appt crying (over all the stress in my life and being depressed over the loss of my mom to cancer suddenly earlier this year, and then just finding out now that my dad has cancer too and the holidays ect) and left laughing. Everything looks great and they agreed that the extra weight gain I've had is probably from starting out way lower than I had with my other 2 rainbows. Next visit isn't until after the holidays in Jan 6th, which is perfect for me. Early visits are so mundane lol. Heartbeat was 152 which is around the same our daughters was at this point, so with that and the nausea, maybe another ltitle lady... we shall see in 6 or so months! :D

Felt My Baby Move for the First Time

There were a few times before this where I thought I felt a little bump here and there, but this night as I laid in bed I felt the distinctive little ball up and flip feeling, and I was sure. Still pretty sporadic but it's nice to be surprised by the knowledge of baby's presence every once in awhile <3

On November 4, 2016 at 9 weeks 1 day pregnant
Announced Pregnancy to Family
We were going to wait till Thanksgiving to tell our families in person. Well our oldest had other plans and she had said something to my sister about a baby being in my sisters belly growing arms.. I just shrugged & pretended not to think anything about it, but on Halloween when she came over again she said "I brought some drinks, unless you can't have them because you're pregnant" lol BUSTED! ONE day my dad was over our daughter was sitting next to me talking about hearing the baby in my belly's heartbeat, my dad was too busy gabbing that he didn't hear, but after all that we figured we'd just spill before Savanah did! Lol the announcement went over most people's head's and some are still just figuring it out. Its bittersweet because as we're so excited to experience this all again, I can't help but be sad my mom is no longer here.

On October 31, 2016 at 8 weeks 4 days pregnant
Started Wearing Maternity Clothes
Not sure exactly when but I moved to my maternity pants pretty quick, they're just way more comfortable lol

On October 27, 2016 at 8 weeks 0 days pregnant
Heard Baby's Heartbeat for the First Time
Was just about to give up looking and baby popped up, as if almost to say "hi mom, here I am, gotta run" lol whatever the case so happy to get to hear if even for a brief moment. I know now general location and know given a week or two it'll be much easier to find :)

On September 24, 2016 at 3 weeks 2 days pregnant
First Positive Pregnancy Test
I had took a test the evening before, knowing it was super early and I normally don't see a faint line until at least 10dpo, but I wanted to know if a few drinks would be okay at the bday party we were headed to, I swore I seen the faintest shadow and now I was really wondering, so I only had a glass of wine and then took another test when we got home, still swore I seen something.. but inconclusive so I figured I'd wait till fmu. Figured if there was indeed a shadow of a line fmu would be darker. Fmu was bfn, and I concluded I had been seeing things and that it was just way too early, but I was pretty convinced I was pregnant. Something told me to take another test that evening and I was shocked to not only see a for sure line, but as visible as it was at only 9dpo and not fmu!

On September 24, 2016 at 3 weeks 2 days pregnant
Told Husband/Partner
I was in such shock at that dark of a line at 9dpo that any thoughts of a fun announcement to hubby went out the window, I called him into the bathroom and told him to look at the test, I believe he said something about it making sense with how I had been acting lol

On September 15, 2016 at 2 weeks 0 days pregnant
Picked a Name
We have 2 names picked out one for each sex, picked then both before we even conceived again lol :)

Been doing the per. massage and got my raspberry leaf tea all ready to go. Guess I shall start drinking it! I noticed that raspberries made me feel a bit crampy, so I guess the tea might, too. I guess it gives me a chance to practice my hypnobirthing techniques! Can't believe hospitals are still encouraging pushing when we are lying on our backs. :-( Absolutely the worst position, though I realise it sometimes has to happen when women have epidurals as it's not safe to be in certain positions with dead legs. I would be delighted if I end up with no tearing. The hypnobirthing suggests a kind of downward breathing where baby is 'nudged' down - I guess this is the gentlest of pushes whilst maintaining that openness! Been re-reading my birth plan and worried it is terribly unrealistic, but gotta try! x

Thank you! It's so fun to watch our bumps grow, and exactly, mine has been different each time, its amazing to me :) oh definitely not! <3

Congratulations on you current pregnancy. I'll post pics of my bump now and again and we'll see if I'm right. Just have a feeling I'm going to have the same sort of sitting proud, beach ball look that you did last time! :-) Not all bumps seem to look the same. Glad you are not offended......! All the best x
