An overdue update and a heartfelt thank you

As Kitty pointed out I haven't updated on Bean since last week when my crazy (YAY) betas came in, but really not too much has been going on. My appt isn't until a week from this Thursday (and let me tell you the wait is torture- I guess at least there will be more to see by then?).
Starting Wednesday the m/s started to kick in. I was okay as long as I would eat something small as soon as I got out of bed (like a banana) and then went potty (something about a BM first thing in the morning I tell ya! ;-) ) then kept eating. Now it's taken on a new twist though. Even if I do the above, starting Friday morning I started dry heaving and even vomiting up the small snack. Once I get moving now (and keep my tummy full) I seem to be okay, but I feel like I am constantly chewing on something. I have been trying to keep it healthy with fruits and veggies, but sometimes the thought of another carrot stick just turns my stomach inside out.
I'm trying really not to complain about any of this (and I think I have succeeded so far) because I know all of it means Bean is doing well and still stuck up in there :)
I have been really, really tired, falling asleep around 8-8:30. I have put some of the work outs on hold, but I am going to pick it back up again this week (only a little less intense LOL I guess p09x will just have to be on the back burner until late October).
Batman's emotions come and go. Sometimes he is really excited and ready to talk names (like yesterday morning at breakfast with his parents) and other times he doesn't want to hear anything about pg and babies. For the most part, he is being a really good sport and puts up with a LOT of baby talk. The sweetest, cutest thing the other night- he layed on the end of the bed reading out loud from the book I bought him. We had a few laughs before I nodded off, but I thought it was really cute :)
I have to admit I am really looking forward to a baby bump and getting to shop for maternity clothes... is that weird? I have a few friends IRL that LOATHED shopping for maternity clothes, but honestly I CAN'T WAIT! (really, tell me if that's weird) I found that carries the bella band (knockoff) for only $16.99 so I think I will get a couple in the next couple weeks. Sadly all of my jeans except for one pair (my "fat pants") don't really fit and hurt if I wear them too long... Isn't it a little early for this?
So all in all, things are going well. I am still a little anxious and have been having a hard time DTD (I have gotten some light spotting each time and it really FREAKS me out), much to Batman's dismay (and my own too... if any of you know me you know I am a RABBIT LOL). Hopefully this gets better soon!

I have to say a very heartfelt thank you to all of you who read my blog. You all have been such a blessing and support to me over the last mos and I can't wait to share this journey with you all. I know how truly blessed I am and I hope and pray that all of you TTC ladies will get your BFPs soon! If I ever come across as ungrateful or bitchy about any of this, can one of you slap me? I don't ever want to taken this gift for granted and I never want to alienate any of you by some thoughtless comment. Thank you for being true friends, even if it does mean it's only on the other side of a computer screen. Honestly you all know more about me than most people IRL! LOL Thank you from the bottom of my sappy, little heart!

I can't wait to hear about your upcoming appointment! Oh, I just loved shopping for maternity clothes - I had never felt so beautiful in my life, and I'm sure you'll feel the same way. I know you've waited quite a bit of time for this, so enjoy every moment of it - morning sickness and "fat clothes" and all! It's just such a magical and special time. :)

I'm thrilled for you and I'm wishing you & Batman the best of luck. Can't wait to hear your update next Thursday!!

I'm so happy for you! I dont think its weird to be excited about a baby bump & maternity cloths. I cant wait for those things either. I can't wait to hear your u/s update!! Good luck!

Kitty said...

Great update. Sorry i'm the update pusher! :) I'm really excited to shop for maternity clothes and all of the above. What book did you buy batman? I bought DH the "Daddy's pregnant too" book. Looks cute. Waiting for him to pick it up. (Gave it to him on Sat)And I can't complain, he is in grad school and has to do a lot of reading with that.

I can't wait to hear about your aptmt next week. Mine is Thursday and I'll KUP. I can't wait. Just to see and hear things will be good. Praying for a heartbeat and good updates!

For window shopping- check out my blog for some ideas on cribs. Would love to see what you think?

:) Kitty

I just stumbled onto your blog because I was looking for people who were TTC and got pregnant! Well, I'm exactly where you are! I just got pregnant (7 weeks) and for two weeks now, my pants haven't been fitting right. I keep on wondering if it's way too early for this. Anyways I really enjoy reading your blog! Sorry if this seems intrusive but I thought I would share a little. Anyways congratulations! XD! Hope you won't mind me popping in once in awhile, it's nice to share the experience with someone who's also having their first!

Yea T! I'm so glad you are doing well and as strange as it sounds, I'm glad you are having some m/s signs. I don't think it's weird to want to shop for maternity clothes. I think it's weird that I've already picked some out and I'm not KU yet! :) Check out they have some great (looking)jeans and good prices too.
Good to hear about you. KUP.

hi! So glad to see this post -- I had been wondering how you were doing since the great beta results. I enjoy reading your blog and hope you'll continue to let those of us still ttc live vicariously through you in this exciting, wonderful pregnancy!!

I have the target bella band and it doesn't hold my pants up. Try it on and bend and sit with it on before you buy it. And check out old navy. com they have a lot of clearance stuff! Can't wait for the next update.
PS. you are being so good! Carrot sticks?!? I eat whatever sounds good, @ 4 mos with m/s I guess i'll just deal with the weight later! lol

Andrea said...

Great update :) I can't wait for the chance to shop for maternity clothes too!

Steph C said...

I am truly happy for you! This is such a great time in your life. Congrats again!!! ;o)

Carbon said...

Oooh, thanks for the note about the Bella Bands, I <3 Tar.get!

Waiting is such a huge part of the parenting thing. For some strange reason I thought waiting would be over after the BFP, how naive I was!

I hope our waits feel shorter than they are. :)

How did I miss your pregnancy announcement again? Jeez!

Maternity clothes - I highly suggest Old Navy. Motherhood sucks assholes and I rarely found anything at target.

I hated the bella band so I would just put a hair tie through the button hole on my jeans and hook it around the button. That worked for me for months.

Early pregnancy = bloating for many many women. It's not a baby bump yet (which I'm sure you know) but your organs that are down below are starting to be pushed upwards. I always laughed when someone rubbed my "baby bump" early one because all they were rubbing was my intestines. I'd say "thanks for rubbing my poop". Heh.

I can't WAIT for maternity clothes, either! Not weird at all. Glad things are going well for you, I'm so happy for you guys.
