Pregnancy - Day 83

Well today is day 83 of my pregnancy, tomorrow I will be 12 weeks. That sounds much better than 197 days to go haha! A lot has changed once we got that positive test! I was reading my good friend's blog and she was journaling some of her pregnancy highlights and I didn't want to forget baby #3.

My last dr. visit was 6/19. Everything went great. They checked for the heartbeat, by doing an ultrasound on top my belly. So not only did I get to hear the heartbeat...I got to see it on the screen. I could listen to the heartbeat ALL DAY! It is SUCH a relief to just hear that heart beating so steadily. It takes much fear away, but there's always that voice that says "what if?" in the back of my head. I try my hardest to leave it all to God. The reality is that I have no control over it (well some) but ultimately He is in control. I trust Him! The fears are finally turning into excitment!
We've started talking about names (which hopefully you voted over to the side). Names are quite humorous in our household. The girls LOVE to help us pick names. I remember Hunter suggesting Alli Jo when I was preggo with Alli....and well it grew on me :) We were watching a show on tv the other day and a boy named Rylan came on....Hunter and I looked at each other and said "yeah!!" We both loved it! I text Joe and he liked it too! The other two names Greyson and Liam, I've liked for a while...Joe just isn't too set on either of them. So most likely if we have a boy his name will be Rylan. Now for the middle name.....UGH! Girl's names aren't as difficult for me. I think Joe is so set on having a boy he doesn't care what I pick out for a girl name ha! He does like Sofia better than Stella, but I like Stella better than Sofia....so we shall see if we have to choose :)
Emotionally and physically I am changing already. I have made it through the 1st trimester w/out gaining any weight. I have been too sick with morning sickness! I am glad I'm not losing weight though. My morning sickness still comes and goes....some days I only have to take one of my pills and others it seems as though I'm taking them as soon as that 6 hours between pills is up!! Some days I'm not hungry at all b/c I'm so nauseous and other days I can't stop eating LOL So I've been pretty balanced thus far. Emotionally I think I'm hilarious. I will cry over anything. I can't even watch Dr. Phil b/c I will start bawling over stupid stuff. I have to change the channel when those animal rescue commercials come on. Joe just laughs b/c I was the same way with Alli Jo. Besides the crying I also laugh intensley. There are sometimes I can't stop laughing and I laugh until I cry....I cannot control it at all. The first time I did this Joe was scared. He didn't know if I was laughing or crying. He didn't know if he should come hug me or laugh with me LOL So he just stared at me until I could talk. I laugh just thinking about it :)
We are all 4 so excited for baby to get here! These next 6 or so months can't come any faster! Alli Jo is constantly hugging my belly and asking where the baby is. Hunter told me the other day she couldn't wait until the baby started to kick! Which was exactly what I was thinking the same day...I kept wondering how early Alli started to kick (I can't remember). Joe loves to talk about our future! Although I think he pictures a boy instead of a girl...so we shall see what God has planned :)

I liked getting a little update on your little one! I bet Joe is ready for a boy...I think most guys would like to have atleast one boy. He doesn't want to feel out numbered with all girls. haha

LOVE IT! I'm glad you are through the first trimester and hopefully the sickness will vanish! I can totally relate to the crying thing! Just ask Matt! That's what made me take a pregnancy test to find out we were pregnant with Christopher...I was crying over a parking lot! (Ask Matt for the whole story!) I would cry when someone would sing the Nat'l Anthem or I'd see any commercial with a soldier sending his love home to family, etc! it was funny! Good luck with that!

how fun that you're getting so close to the 2nd trimester. this pregnancy is going to fly by! i bet your girls are going to be awesome big sisters!!

Brandi said...

you guys sound like us with names... girls names are easier for us... we have NO boy names. i like liam too, except nathanial isn't very sure about it. the suggestions from my eldest aren't as doable though as yours... rocket ship and abbie-ba-dabbi. congrats on surviving the 1st tri!
