I had my sono on Monday. It was amazing! I had Joey with me so he was sitting on a chair near me. He behaved himself very well, BH. The technician was great! She asked me if I wanted to know the gender and I said I won't be able to not know for the rest of the pregnancy. So...I'm not going to say it here :P. The baby didn't want to stretch out so I have to go back again to get a sono of his spine and heart.

Today there is no mistake that I'm feeling the baby kick! Thank G-d! I'm so grateful to feel the kicks so I don't have to worry right now.
On another note, I'm worried that Joey will be very jealous when the baby comes. I was holding Eli's baby and he didn't like that...I hope he'll grow out of it by the time the baby gets here!

I'm feeling on and off some little flutters recently. Never a good solid movement but slight pushes and then gone. I haven't felt the flutters in a while but I just read somewhere that it's normal because the baby is too small right now to always be near my stomach so baby could be further away and I'm just not feeling the kicks. I had mild cramping but I'll call the midwife tomorrow and find out if there's anything to worry about.

I didn't write for a while because...I didn't feel like it! But to recap. I was extremely nauseous for the last month but recently the nausea is going away. I only throw up a couple of mornings a week, thank G-d. I've been very tired though and usually fall asleep while watching my son during the afternoon. He's been very good and when I wake up a little bit he goes Shhh! He's so cute!
Sometimes when I get up too fast or in the wrong way I get sharp pains in my lower abdomen which freak me out. I asked my MIL but she said it was nothing to worry about. I will ask my MW when I go next week.
I've been craving sweet things so far. Maybe that will mean I'm going to have a girl! That would be amazing. Though I would be happy with a healthy baby of either gender.
My stomach is popping! Soon I won't fit into my clothes but I mostly have summer maternity wear because that's when I was pregnant last time so shopping is coming up soon! I didn't tell my father or family yet but after this next appointment on Monday I will tell him. I only didn't tell him earlier because I know he would have told everyone before I was ready to tell everyone. So now if I say something I don't mind that people will know especially if I'm going to be showing pretty soon.

Yesterday I had a bit of a scare. I had to go to the bathroom pretty badly because I was a bit constipated. So I was pushing hard and when I wiped afterwards there was a streak of blood! It was very light pink and very little but it completely freaked me out. I told my husband right away and he said we should just remember that whatever happens its for a reason and we shouldn't worry.
Tomorrow I plan on calling the midwife just to ask if everything is ok. I hope it's nothing!

Today I had my second sonogram done. We finally saw a heartbeat, bli ayin harah! I took a picture of the sonogram and sent it to my husband. I'm so relieved and I can get excited now. I just don't want to get too worked up until I'm out of the first trimester.
I had a pap smear done and all my blood work. The person who does the blood took around 7 vials of blood. She said that I have to do this many just this one time though I might have to do a couple of more vials later on but not this many.
I had a lot of questions for the midwife but I didn't get a chance to ask her. I don't think they are really pertinent right now, so I'll just ask by my next appointment. I have to go back in 5 weeks!

I went today to the midwife. I had my sonogram done and the technician told me that the sac measured at 6 weeks, but there was no heartbeat. The midwife told me that it might mean either that it is too early, or that a baby didn't develop. I have to go back next week for another u/s.
I'm nervous but just trying to think that whatever happens, happens. There is nothing I can do but pray. So that's what I'll do!

This was one of the first symptoms of this pregnancy. I can't believe that I don't remember if I had sore boobs by my first son. I would imagine that this is something you don't forget! But it hurts so much that I just can't ignore them at all. It's like two sore things hanging from my chest. Oh, well! I'm happy that I have this symptom because last pregnancy I had nausea almost every morning for the first 3 months! In some ways I wish I had that again because then it would feel like I am really pregnant though I know that I am because I took three tests and all positive.
I have to go to the bathroom a ton but not a lot during the night. Sometimes I have to go towards the morning and then it's harder to get back to sleep. Sometimes I wake up at around 1-2 and that's better because then I can sleep better afterwards. My son is pretty good in the morning and my husband is so much help! He takes care of him so I don't have to get up so early in the morning. I don't know what I would do without him.
I'm looking forward to having a new baby but I'm also a little apprehensive. Can you imagine having a 3 year old and a newborn?? I'll have to be extremely calm and let things go as they go. Not to get too uptight and tense! Yeah, right :D. I'll try and count to 10 whenever I am getting too frustrated.
