12 weeks

One trimester down, two to go!

By the way if you don't like pregnancy posts, too bad, there will be lots.

So, last week was kind of stressful. I had a doctors appointment and he couldn't find the heartbeat, which I know is normal, so I wasn't too worried about that because it was still early. The last 3-4 weeks though, anytime I do anything physical, like the laundry or go up the stairs, I start cramping. Almost like small braxton hicks, right where the uterus is. I've had no spotting so that's good, because he thought I maybe could miscarry. It doesn't hurt, it's just uncomfortable, and coming from someone who went into labour A LOT with the twins, I know what they feel like. So that worried the doctor and he automatically wanted to refer me to an OBGYN, and get more blood tests to see if my levels were increasing. He also said it's likely i'll have complications this pregnancy because of the pregnancy with the twins. I don't know why but I left that appointment a complete wreck. I bawled all day, and the day after that. Knowing that there could be complications, or what if I end up on bedrest, or that he was worried himself, got me upset. Normally I am not one to stress until I have too, such as this I normally wouldn't, but man I was a mess. After the two days of emotions, I was fine and wasn't as stressed. He wanted to see me a week later to check for the heartbeat again and tell me my blood results.

Which brings me to today. First of all, we heard the heartbeat! It was awesome. So far this pregnancy has felt surreal and that just confirmed I have another child on it's way. I probably could have cried if Dustin wasn't starring at me, waiting for the tears to come! He thinks it's hilarious that I cry at EVERYTHING. rude right? I asked Dustin after if it was exciting hearing his little girls heartbeat? haha.

So they are still referring me to an OBGYN because they want to make sure it's not going to be high risk, and are still concerned about the cramping or whatever it is. I have an appointment Nov 3rd with the OB. Not too far eh? Whatever, that's like a month! Does anyone know any Obstetrician's who want to work up here? Because we have two, TWO doctors, who do prenatal care and deliver. That's it. And a million pregnant ladies!! So we'll wait a month and until then, i'll just take it easy just incase.

So I don't have a belly pic, I will take one this weekend or tomorrow. Yes I do have a belly, and no it's not cute. It actually shrunk this week. I think the sexy bloating finally went down and now it's actually a little baby bump. Honestly these last 2 months FLEW by. This is a good thing!

The sickness has also gone down and i'm doing pretty good other than the above issues. So that's the update on the pregnancy. At first I was going to play it low key and not update on here a lot, but I love reading pregnancy updates, and I love to read back from my pregnancy with the twins on here. So I want to have the same this time. So you better get used to it!

I do have one picture for you though! Kyla got her school pictures back today and I was so nervous. They make you preorder your package before even seeing the pictures, so I didn't want to have to send it back and do retakes.

Well I am in LOVE with it. She looks beautiful! Yay!

That's all. :)
