Little Bit Bit: Week 6

Ugh! We’re visiting my parents in Topeka and I feel terrible because I’ve just been a bum on the couch in my pj’s all day. It’s funny how after I had Lakyn, I forgot about so many things, little details, about the pregnancy, and now that I’m pregnant again I find myself remembering everything. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve thought to myself, ” ohhhhhyyeeaaaahhhhh. Yep, I remember this feeling.” I’m feeling pretty nauseous today and I’m sure I look absolutely fantastic to go with it!

Had Chipotle for dinner tonight. It didn’t stay in my tummy long. First time getting sick during this pregnancy. Bleh.

Threw up again this morning, but moving on to happier news…We had our OB appointment this morning! Wanna know what my favorite part was? Seeing my midwife! I’m not gonna lie here. After finding out I was pregnant, one of my first thoughts was, “now I get to see Jeane again!” This lady is amazing! For real, fo realz. If she ends up moving to Cali, or New York, or Montana, I’d move across the country with her (sorry Mom, but it’s true!), because I will not have anyone else deliver my babies. We found out that we won’t be able to have this baby at the same hospital we had Lakyn at due to some office changes with our doctor. We had Lakyn at St. Luke’s South and absolutely loved it there. The rooms were huge, the place was really nice and clean, it was updated, I loved that we stayed in one room the entire time, and the nurses were amazing. With Baby #2, we’ll be delivering at Overland Park Regional, which I’m sure is a wonderful hospital as well. We’ve had friends have their babies there and they really liked it. I’m just struggling with the change right now, but like I said above, I’d follow Jeane anywhere, so Overland Park Regional it is!

Our appointment went great. Went over the usual first OB appointment stuff. Our due date is Aug. 21, 2012. If you remember in a previous post, I guessed the 20th, so I was close! They drew my blood today for the lab work. It’s funny how labor and delivery changes a person. Before having Lakyn, I was TERRIFIED of needles. Someone would have to go with me whenever a shot or blood work was involved. I’d get all worked up and nervous beforehand, I’d never look at the needle, and I ALWAYS made sure I was in mid conversation with someone in hopes of distracting myself from the pain. I know, such a wimp! But it was true. I remember the first OB appointment with Lakyn. I went to sit in the chair and the nurse asked me if I was alright. I told her yes, that I just didn’t like needles and didn’t handle them well. She gave me this sideways glance and said, “and you’re gonna have a baby?” I proceeded to ask her if she wanted to get punched in the face. I kid, I kid! But I sure felt like it. How dare she mock me?!

Today was different though, as I was walking back to the chair Brandon asked if I wanted him to come with me to hold my hand. I told him no. I was feeling fine. Wasn’t worked up over it at all and I actually watched this time! After having a baby, getting blood drawn is a piece of cake! I laughed at how accomplished I felt when it was all done!

Tomorrow we have our first sono! We’re gonna get to see our little bit bit for the first time! We’re excited and we’re super excited to tell Brandon’s family in 3 days!

Remember, August 21st!

We told Brandon’s family today! We had Lakyn wear her Big Sister shirt again and hung out until everyone noticed. It wasn’t long, though. My MIL saw it right away (love that both moms figured it out first)! The faces and reactions were great, and my SIL Monica says she’ll forgive me for lying to her these past couple of weeks! She’s been anxious for another niece or nephew and she’s been asking when it’s going to happen. It was hard to lie to her, but Brandon and I agreed we were going to wait to tell them until (most) everyone was together. Now we start telling the rest of our family and then we’ll move on to telling friends. Our plan is to tell as many people as we can in person. We’re going to make sure to get good use out of Lakyn’s Big Sister shirt!
