Combined Threads - Formerly Officially A BOY!! + Water Broke!
I'm sure Mike's going to realllly appreciate this. So he and I are officially trying for our kiddo #2. We had unprotected sex last night, which marks the only other time we've EVER had unprotected sex. We grew up freaking out about unplanned pregnancies so we feel good about being able to plan our two. Don't get me wrong, surprises are good too - but I kinda don't like being surprised hehe. Especially since I'm diabetic so I have to come off a lot of medication. So I'm checking my blood pressure everyday and sugar. Anyway - if it's anything like Catherine, I'll be pregnant by next week O_o
Cross your fingers!
I'm so tired. =(
I didn't show till I was nearly 5 months either. I just started wearing maternity clothes at 4 months because I wanted everyone to know I was pregnant
I remember being tired too, but not so much in the beginning...more around the eighth month. Then I remember getting off work, going home, and just floating around on a raft in the pool! :P
Gratz on the weight issue!
So I talk to my old primary care provider about getting on the insulin pump. (shudder). Women's Health is INSISTING I do it.
'What? Why? No! Putting you on the pump would make things worse.'
I am perplexed, I've been perplexed a lot this week.
'Listen - putting you on the pump with these blood sugars isn't going to help. Do this instead.'
So he changed my insulin medicine back to what I was taking, minus my exhubera penis pump inhaler thing. My morning fasting is now 120. JESUS FUCKING CHRIST. Women's Health had me on these 2 insulins that were 'tried and true'. It was the same stuff I took with Catherine but with greater success - but that was 8 years ago. Anyway, I'm way better now and completely relieved.
I've been feeling good and the baby's kicking really strong but not strong enough for Mike to feel him from the outside. Catherine swears she's felt him though. I go in again at 24 weeks to have them look at the heart - nothing wrong there, just that his heart is still small at 19 weeks and they want to see it when it gets bigger.
Jello and I are gonna start planning my bebe shower now that we know for sure its a boy. I've been registering at amazon and target but I honestly don't know what to choose except for the big stuff that people never buy you lol. Anyway, we're happy, the baby looks healthy and we're excited. This is going by so much faster than Catherine, for sure. =)

What name are you registered under? And all I can remember needing tons of when my daughter was a baby were washcloths, receiving/light weight blankets, crib sheets, and those terry sleepers. Because I worked full time I didn't get a chance to do laundry more than once a week, so having lots of those kinds of things helped me there.
Of course the big things are nice too...and I had a couple friends go in together on my swing. My family bought me most of the other big things. I don't know if I could have survived without my shower though...what a godsend!
