My Milestones & Events

On March 31, 2016 at 42 weeks 0 days pregnant
Rolled over...June 9, 2016
Ok I know these milestones are supposed to be meant for pregnancy. But I decided to continue it for Milestones my baby has made for now...

My son is 3 months and 11 days old and has hated Tummy Time and so I just stopped trying for awhile. Well after I changed his diaper he suddenly turned over on to his tummy and stayed there. He actually looked pleased with himself and was enjoying it until he gave himself the hiccups and started to panic...but I am so pleased to see it.

But Connor Joseph was born at 10:07pm!
7lbs 9.3oz and 20 inches long!

Installed Car Seat
Well, hubby installed the carseat bases in both cars and the carseat in my car today! :)

I was excited with my car because I was hoping we could put the carseat in the middle of the back seat but I figured since it only had 4 seat belts it wouldn't work. But the middle part has the LATCH system! YAY! My step kids are going to be so happy! They thought the last time we had them they weren't going to be able to ride in my car anymore. :)

I have a 2 door convertible. So, the only part that sucks for me is one of them will have to get in on the drivers side now instead of climbing through to the seat from the passenger side. LOL! The sacrifices we have to make! ;)

Just happy that things are working out the way we want them too...so far. :)

Packed for the Hospital/Birth Center
Well, we are mostly packed for the hospital. There are a few last minute items that we will need to add but those are on a Hospital Check List I put together. So hopefully we don't forget anything.

Prental Tests: Group B Strep Test (GBS)
Had the test done today! Now we wait for the results. Probably wont find out until Tuesday March 1st at my next appt.

On February 20, 2016 at 36 weeks 2 days pregnant
Breastfeeding class
Had our breastfeeding class today...lots of good information and put my mind at ease with certain questions I had.

Felt bad for DH...I was told that I would most likely be the only one without my husband there and that they suggest having your partners there so they can be supportive. Well, only one other guy showed up. One had their mom there and the rest came solo...lol. Well, at least he wasn't the only man there...lol.

Starting to organize our nursery
OMG! Where to start?! This is all the gifts we got at the baby shower! Now time to clean it up and inventory to figure out what we still need. EEEK!

On February 6, 2016 at 34 weeks 2 days pregnant
Baby Shower
Had our baby shower! I didn't get a pick of all the presents wrapped together but I will post a dumped pic of them in the next couple milestones. :) The next one is of our cake!

On February 6, 2016 at 34 weeks 2 days pregnant
Baby Shower Cake
This was our cake! It was delicious! 1/2 was Butter Pecan, 1/2 was a white sour cream. Everything on the cake was edible. The dolphin was chocolate. :)

The cake was part of our nursery theme!

On February 1, 2016 at 33 weeks 4 days pregnant
Bought Baby's First Outfit
Ok so it wasn't actually today when I bought these...it was about a week or so ago. But I did have them washed today and put away now that the nursery is finally getting put together. :)

I know his EDD is St. Patrick's Day but I also know he will be here by then because we are supposed to be induced a week early. Kinda hoping that changes but, guess we will see.

But these 2 little outfits I just couldn't resist!!!

On January 27, 2016 at 32 weeks 6 days pregnant
Nursery Furntiture Arrived
Well, after waiting for 3 1/2 months our nursery furniture finally arrived.

They delivered it and they assembled it. Unfortunately I wasn't paying as close attention to it and the front of the crib was built on backwards. The stickers you see on the bottom are supposed to be placed on the inside. But hopefully it wont make a difference, at least until they come to fix it. Also sadly the crib and several nicks and scuffs on the right side of the crib. So they are sending someone out to take a look at that as well as the glider and dresser. Because I found 1 problem with each. I am very picky and want the stuff I buy to be perfect. Granted I know nothing is ever perfect but I can also tell it was most likely done by the manufacturer and not the guys who put it together...as far as I can tell.

Started Childbirth Classes
Started our 3 classes of Getting Ready for Labor & Delivery classes today.

They are 3 weeks long and on Monday nights!

Update: Finished and got lots of information! But so far still really glad we chose the hospital we chose. They seem very accommodating to our needs. I pray it stays true come delivery day.

Prental Tests: Glucose Challenge Test
Had my 3 hr Glucose test done.

Found out I failed it on Dec 30th.
On Jan 5th, I had to start pricking my finger 4 times a day. And start cutting down on my carbs.

Husband/Partner Felt Baby Move for the First Time
Tonight, DH felt a flutter of movement. It wasn't strong, but so glad he felt our baby boy too. :)

On November 7, 2015 at 21 weeks 2 days pregnant
Felt My Baby Move for the First Time
I felt my sweet boy for the first time!

A friend of mine whom I met on a different forum site sent me her fetal doppler handheld machine and as I was trying to find the heartbeat I felt and heard the baby push on the wand twice. Then I pushed a couple fingers in the same spot and felt him kick my fingers out. It was such a joyous moment. :)

On October 31, 2015 at 20 weeks 2 days pregnant
I guess you could call it babies first Halloween! :)

On October 18, 2015 at 18 weeks 3 days pregnant
Started Wearing Maternity Clothes
Well, I started wearing maternity clothes a couple weeks ago, mostly just the pants. But today we went shopping and I bought more maternity clothes and bras. Yay! I finally have clothes that will fit. :)

On October 18, 2015 at 18 weeks 3 days pregnant
Nursery Furniture
We bought the crib, dresser, changing table and a glider for the nursery room today! YAY! :)

On October 2, 2015 at 16 weeks 1 day pregnant
Found Out Baby's Gender
Well, we did a specialty ultrasound today from My First Peekaboo and discovered we are having a BOY!!! :)

On August 31, 2015 at 11 weeks 4 days pregnant
Even though this really isn't a milestone...it helps me remember when i started taking/doing stuff. Today I started my first Lovenox shot. I'm told it will get easier. Have to take it at the same time every day throughout pregnancy. :/ But it's mostly as a preventative measure.

On August 26, 2015 at 10 weeks 6 days pregnant
First Prenatal Appointment
Had my first prenatal appt and everything turned out to be very good. I am healthy and the baby is healthy. :)

In the u/s you can see the baby with it's hand sticking up by it's head.

Announced Pregnancy to Family
Today we told the rest of the family. We had the kids wear the T-shirts I created for them and waited to see how long it would take them to read and figure it out. Both my parents read the front but never read the back until about 20 minutes later...lol. DH's parents read both sides right away. Needless to say everyone is thrilled for us! And what a load off my shoulders it is that everyone in our immediate family knows. :)

On August 7, 2015 at 8 weeks 1 day pregnant
Announced Pregnancy to Step-Kids
Once we got back to the house and sat the kids down. I gave them both T-shirts that I made with Fabric Pens. They are absolutely thrilled to be having a sibling. They both thanked us for creating them a sibling...lol.

(Showing the back of the t-shirts in next milestone)

First Ultrasound
Had my first ultrasound today and we didn't get to hear the heartbeat but we did see it. Doc says heartbeat is a strong 155 bpm. :)

On July 13, 2015 at 4 weeks 6 days pregnant
2nd HCG Test
Went and got my 2nd test done today and...

HCG level is 3394.0

On July 10, 2015 at 4 weeks 3 days pregnant
3rd Positive Pregnancy Test
I couldn't wait for the next HCG test result that next Monday so I took 2 tests on 17DPO.


Not sure if you can see it but the top one says 2-3 weeks and the bottom one, the test line is actually darker than the control line!

On July 6, 2015 at 3 weeks 6 days pregnant
2nd Positive Pregnancy Test and 1st HCG Test
Took a second test on 13DPO and it's even darker than the first...I couldn't believe my eyes! So I called the doctors office right away that morning and got my blood test done.

HCG: 136.1

That's the highest I have ever seen it...before with my early m/c's I never saw past a 33.

On July 4, 2015 at 3 weeks 4 days pregnant
First Positive Pregnancy Test
I can't believe how dark this test is for being only 11DPO! I know it's really not that dark but considering the past 2 pregnancies that ended in early m/c's...this is remarkable!

Well I hope you're able to find rest as often as possible, and that the blues go away and stay away. Do you have anyone helping you out right now while you heal and take care of baby? I hope so.

Thanks for checking on me. No, absolutely no sign yet. I hope she decides to come on her own soon. We just keep waiting. How is your sweet new bundle? How are you feeling, emotionally and physically? I hope everything is going well <3
