After hearing the babies heart beat I am officially going to start to Blog about my mommy venture’s….
It’s been 5 weeks since I found out I was pregnant, and what a LONG 5 weeks it has been!! I can feel the changes that my body has gone through. I could have sworn I gained 10 pounds over the last 5 weeks, but actually lost 1 pound.
I’ve been told that I’m lucky for not feeling over board sick and not really having to meet with the toliet on a regular basis. I’m pretty sure I had the flu for a few days because I had a fever and achey body, and couldn’t keep a thing down. Then after a few days, I was back to my normal self, eating every two hours and sleeping inbetween!!!
I have to admit, we were not planning this baby. Well, not yet anyways. We are going on another big trip in August and we were determined to wait because I did not want to have to “hold back” so to speak, on this trip.
BUT, God had different plans. I don’t doubt this baby and God’s plan. I think the timing is more perfect then we could have expected. I’m ready to be a mom. And BJ, well, He’s more ready to be a dad that he might admit. (and he’ll be a great one at that!)
I love the typical questions that everyone wants to know about.
How are you feeling?
What do you want? A boy or a girl?
Was this planned?
How many kids do you want?
Are you going to let people rub your belly?
You have a glow already! And I can see that your showing already!! (are you sure I’m showing or am I just bloated?)
I love the questions. I guess because it’s my first every step is new and exciting. But to answer these quickly and officiantly, I have my answers down to a science.
I’m feeling great, just ALWAYS hungry (and thats frustrating). I don’t care what we have as long as it gets here healthy and in my arms. No, this was not planned! not yet anyways. I want lots of kids. It’s always been that way. But my husband, well I will get lucky if I can get to 3! And do I really have a say in people rubbing my belly?? Haha. I’m am expecting everyone around me to rub my belly and I don’t care. Just wait till I’m showing and I don’t feel fat! And thank you for saying I’m glowing. Atleast your not telling me I look deathly pale and could really use some sun. Are you sure your feeling ok?? And no, I am not showing. So my Dr. tells me. I can’t suck in. My belly sticks out, and therefore I am bloated. 24/7… and I’m ok with that.
SO, there’s my last 5 weeks. I am going to blog so much more because of this baby and keeping as many people updated as possible.
Love, The Carpenters and Baby Bean…
