Hey guys! Whew! Who knew pregnancy could make you soooo tired!:sleep: And a slew of other odd things... :flush::curse::cry::angeldevi Otherwise, I've been in really great spirits. I am 11 week pregnant now. I will be in my second trimester by the end of this month! I have had 2 doctor visit's and ultrasounds. Everything is great and we got to hear the baby's heartbeat. What a beautiful sound! It's still to early to know if it's a he or she. I still just want a healthy baby! But it would be fun to have a little girl to dress up and buy pink stuff. (my favorite color) But a little boy would be fun because I am a car fanatic. I have some names picked out for a girl Layla Elaine and a boy Zachary James or Andrew James (after the daddy) I haven't started buying anything yet.. but my hunny is about to start a new job (we hope he practically has it in the bag) So hopefully we can get our car paid off and start buying stuff.

So here is my belly from 8 weeks. I'm sure it will be growing more soon as my appetite comes back.



My first U/S at 7 weeks to tell me everything was going well


And just 3 weeks later.... BABY GOT BIGGER! 10 weeks








I go back on October 27 when I'll be 14 weeks!

Thank you! I really want a girl so I can name her Layla.. lol

And yes ofcourse it's from the Eric Clapton song Layla and Elaine is my middle name, my Aunt's middle name and my cousins middle so it's running in the family.

But best of all... it's not common! I hate extremely popular names. I really liked Tuesday for a girl too.. but daddy says kids would make fun of her. BLAH. I said I'll teach her to sock em. haha

oo that is a pretty name! Have you asked for any meds for the sickness? i had it really bad in the early stages and they actually gave me medicine for it.

I'm due January 11th w/ a baby girl so i'm about 6 months. i think i'm going to name her Shelby Lynn but it's still up in the air.

They offered me medication a few times. But I didn't consider my morning sickness to be as bad as some other women. And I found it was manageable if I ate dry cheerios if I started to feel sick, or if I just got it over with I felt better. It was regular for about a week then it was pretty sporadic. I thought it was done completely til it hit me a few nights ago. A few nights I had to sleep on my back with my upper back a little elevated. That helped. The biggest pain is having to wake up every couple hours at night to pee. And then peeing about every 20 to 30 mins sometimes. I generally always have something to drink by me though.

Congrats on your baby girl. I hope everything goes smoothly!

Oh yeah! Is this your first? This is my first pregnancy and all! I've been so worried and paranoid about miscarriage, at least I was until I heard the heartbeat and got that second set of u/s pics and saw how much the little thing grew. The hb was 167. I'm taking a really good prenatal vitamin called citra natal assure it has a stool softener (wonderful!) and a DHA supplement.

Off topic: Do you have a mustang? I've owned 2 an 89 4 cyl as my first car and a 74 Mustang II with a bunch of goodies. Had to sell it when my daily driver was stolen. It was very sad. We have an 01 Ford ZX2 now so I'm still in the Ford Family... but will have to get a family car soon!

It was hard to sell the 74. But I was left with it as a daily driver with a 4 barrel carb, cam, 5.0 with 3.50 gas prices. I just couldn't do it. Plus the upkeep on a car that old. I hate theifs!!

I've been bad about eating a lot of junk but it's all that I am hungry for. And I'm reading what to expect when your expecting and it said don't worry as much in the early months. Eat what your craving. I know I need to eat healthier. But I never have been a healthy eater so it's hard to change.

Oh i hear ya..a car like that is a nice weekend driver so I can understand having to sell it. I'm sure you will have another one someday.

Yeah I would'nt worry about junk food..eat what makes you happy. I know when my mom had me they did'nt worry about half the crap they say to watch for now and I turned out fine...at least your taking you vitamins so that is a good thing.

Yeah I'm waiting for someone (who doesn't own a PB) to ask me when I'm getting rid of Helena. And then tell me how irresponsible I am for owning a pit bull with a baby on the way. It just sounds like something that would happen.
