21 Weeks 1 Day

I can't believe I haven't updated, especially with all of the things I've been dealing with! The last time I blogged was over 2 months ago. Not much has changed. My mom and younger sister are still not wanting anything to do with me. There is some hope that my mom is going to "come around" but who knows when that will be. It's such a disappointing situation. Anyways...

I have my own insurance now, which is awesome. I found out the sex of the baby and we are having a girl!!! I am so happy. I was convinced there would be a little boy in there, but to my surprise the doctor said girl! It's so funny how people have been telling me the baby is going to be a diva and always have her hair done LOL. I find that to be hilarious, yet partially true! But we will see.

My boyfriend is doing an outstanding job of being there and providing for us. He has been saving up for a car and I think he's ready to buy one sometime next week. Next on his agenda is to get our emergency fund in order and start buying things for the baby.

Our baby shower is going to be the second week of November, so we will probably purchase things after that. This will allow us to see what we did not receive and what we need to buy.

I am a little tired of being pregnant, the constant heartburn, the pressure on my bladder, stomachaches...it's not pleasant!


Week 11 Day 6

Tomorrow, I will be 12 weeks pregnant! Wow.

The last week has consisted of me being worried about a miscarriage and not hearing a heartbeat at my recent appointment.

I went in yesterday to speak with my doctor, meeting her for the first time. She was amazing, knowledgeable and very compassionate. She let me ask questions and was very patient, making sure I understood her answers.

She then let us (my S/O and myself) hear the heartbeat! All I could do was giggle!

My doctor was a little concerned because she "heard" that my last visit there was some crying, in regards to my family. I told her my mother wasn't the most supportive at the moment and at the time of the first visit, she didn't know yet. The doctor wanted to know how that was going, i told her I told my mom two weeks ago, and haven't heard from her since.

My mom feels like I should be married first then have kids. She also feels like my S/O and I shouldn't be living together, and we are not married. We have been together for 4 years, and quite frankly I'm very happy that he is going to be the father of my child. He's going to do an outstanding job.

I'm not worried about it. If my mom doesn't want to be involved that is ultimately, her loss. I have a child coming whether she likes it or not!


Week 11

The first trimester is almost coming to an end. I am still a little scared and excited, all at the same time! I've been slowly telling people about the pregnancy and being cautious of WHO I tell. It's not that I don't think people will want what's best for me, I'm just worried that something may happen, and then I'd have to tell all those people again.

My significant other has been very supportive, even though I know he's not happy with the mood swings. Regardless, I know how excited he is and he only wants what's best. He has been dealing very well with my mood swings and I am so grateful for that.

Last week we had our first prenatal visit at the doctor, and we were able to see the baby! It was so amazing. I have never experienced anything like this before. To know that a human being is in there, is so fascinating.

One more week and trimester 1 is over. Time is already flying.
