8 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 8 Weeks
Doctor: No appointment yet, but a continuous fiasco. When I saw the high
risk OB in january they said that I would be able to be followed
by them and by a doctor out here, so if I did go to full term
I could deliver out here. But now they are saying they won't.
The doctors here will still take me, and could just transfer me
if they needed to so at this point I may not continue to see
High Risk unless a complication arises.
Size of baby: is a tiny bit longer than half an inch long

Development: This week the baby's heart has separated into four distinct
chambers and is beating around 150 beats per minute. Webbed
toes and fingers will start to form this week.

Sleep: I am exhausted, waking up a ton, with my mind racing thinking about
the next few months, and praying that this precious miracle will stay
inside for at least 38weeks and have no complications

What I miss: A good night's sleep kind of:-)

Cravings: None really

Symptoms: VOMITING, vomiting and more vomiting. I am blessed as this time
around doesn't seem nearly as severe as with Sam and SOphia. I
am still very tired but doing well.

Best Moment this week: I finally had an HCG level done and found out that
my level was over 43,000 so I was so excited about it. Also was
happy to schedule first appointments and learn that I could be
delivered locally if I can make it to term this time. I was so
excited that I physically hugged Dr. D today when she said she
would take me on as a patient!!!!:-)

Well I have officially entered into my "morning" sickness, although I call it "first and second trimester sickness." THe nausea really started kicking in last weekend, although the vomiting just started in ernest two days ago, yesterday I vomited everything I ate, although I may have been able to keep down a small portion of supper. Although it is very disgusting and I feel terrible, it is realiving to me, because I know that this is for real. That I am growing a tiny precious miracle and the sicker I am the healthier baby?!?!:-) Power of positive thinking:-)
I have been hemming and hawing about where I want to deliver. Although I am so thoroughly disappointed that my doctor will not be delivering, I am contemplating still trying to deliver here at the local hospital with my friends/co-workers and doctors that I know vs. delivering in a huge hospital seeing a different face every appointment and not who is caring for me or my baby. That being said I know that there is a huge posibility that I will be delivering in worcestor regardless, but I am praying so earnestly that this pregnancy will not be filled with complications and that I will only be classified as "high risk" because of my past, not anything current. So we shall see, even if the local docs will accept me as a patient, or if they feel that I am too high risk to deliver here.
Hopefully will have an HCG level today:-) (finally) and I can't wait to see how high it is:-)

7 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 7 Weeks
Doctor: No appointment yet, still waiting for a referral
Size of baby: between 1/3 and a 1/4 inch long

Development: The baby's brain is growing by about 100cells a minute, the face is becoming more defined with a tiny hole for a mouth, a tongue, nostrils, and ear indentations

Sleep: I am exhausted, and now I know why:-)

What I miss: Nothing really

Cravings: None really

Symptoms:I have had increasing periods of nausea but hadn't actually had any vomiting until this morning, I am not sure if it is pregnancy related or if I am sick, as Sam and Sophia have a GI bug. I have been exhausted for about a week but I assumed it was just due to poor sleep but other than that nothing

Best Moment this week: Just reveling in the miracle of God's creation of
a new miracle and being a part of it.

You got your first kiss from Daddy today Little One. Daddy kissed my belly. It was so cute. I had a pretty significant bought of nausea tonight while eating but no actual vomiting involved. I am feeling fairly well although still very very tired. I am getting excited and praying that all goes smoothly and that this precious baby is full term and healthy
I am 6wks and 5 days pregnant, and todays development states that the placenta is forming:-)
I feel so blessed to be carrying this baby, and blessed that God has chosen us to love another one of His children.

Psalm 139:13 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.

Kind of disappointed:-(

So I told our doctor that I was pregnant yesterday. She was so excited for us. I am sad though as she has said that she will no longer be doing OB so I have to go to a new doctor. I will be referred down to a High Risk OB down in Worcestor. I really really want to have her be the doctor that delivers me. It is sad to think that she won't be there. The most important thing is that this baby is healthy so that is what I will focus on.
I also went down and had the physical therapy evaluation for my back. I am so encouraged by this evaluation. It sounds like there are some things that possibly have been missed and should be relatively easy fixes so hopefully my back will heal before I get too far along.
I am just getting so excited about this pregnancy. I have told my friend Meg that we are expecting and she is so excited for us. Matt thinks I won't be able to keep this a secret for very long, but it is almost like a challenge to me now so hopefully I can keep it a surprise. I am thinking about announcing on Mother's Day which seems like an eternity but it would be so awesome to surprise everyone on that day:-)
I have thought of some names, because I am super excited. I really want to name the baby after someone. If the baby is a boy I would like his middle name to be Vaughn (after my Father in law or Matthew after Matt) if it is a girl I would like her middle name to be Jean (after my grandmother, and also my mother and I carry this name too) I am loving names like Preston, Tucker, Sawyer, and Christian for a boy. Girls names are Abigail, Harper, Madison. So so much fun!!!

Baby Weber #3

Oh my goodness! I just learned that I am pregnant today! I have suspected it for over a week but was so nervous about taking the test. With the history of the miscarriage I was wanting to wait until I was at least 8weeks along but I couldn't wait any longer:-) We are keeping it a secret for a little while still. But I will document all my thoughts and feelings here for now.
I am smiling so much my face is getting tired. I am so so excited! I wish that I was farther along so that I wasn't nervous. But I just couldn't wait any longer.
I did recently go and see a high risk OB down at UMass and her recommendation was sooner rather than later, the older I get the more chances of complications that there is. Little did either of us know at that appointment that I already was pregnant. I just love saying it:-)
Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 6 Weeks
Size of baby: the size of a lentil, about a 1/4 long
Development: The nose, mouth, and ears are beginning to take shape. The
heart is beating around 160 beats a minute
Sleep: I am exhausted, and now I know why:-)
What I miss: Nothing really - maybe sleeping on my stomach? Or bending over? ha!
Cravings: None really
Symptoms: None really. I was a tiny bit queezy for about an hour on
wednesday and then twice on thursday. I have been exhausted for about a week but I assumed it was just due to poor sleep but other than that nothing
Best Moment this week: Seeing the POSITIVE pregnancy test:-)
