I have some life changes happening and I wanted to share them with you.
Yep! You are not seeing things! Believe me, I was in denial. So much that I had to take 5 pregnancy tests. So it is safe to say that this came as a total and complete surprise. A slight mis-calculation on my part and well, you know how the story goes. Mike and Jessica sittin' in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G, first comes Love, then comes Marriage, then...
So I am thinking of changing the name of my blog to Jessica Likes to Run...While Pregnant. Just kidding ;)
Yep, that's right I plan on running as much as I can until I can't because I am too big or it hurts. I plan on listening to my body, but I am going to try and workout this pregnancy, which is something I did not do when I was pregnant with Gavin. I will be documenting everything because I will otherwise forget. LOL. Pregnancy brain is real people and let me tell you so is morning sickness. Except I am so lucky that my morning sickness lasts all day and even wakes me up in the middle of the night. I will be so glad when I start the second trimester and start feeling better and don't have to eat saltine crackers every morning. I did have my first appointment on July 31st. We did get to hear the heartbeat, which was 175. I was so thankful for that. I also got a little chewed out because I have an umbilical hernia from when I had Gavin and I never got it fixed. I guess it didn't bother me, so I never thought about getting it fixed. The nurse practioner was ready to send me to see a surgeon, but she got the second opinion from Dr. and he said to leave it alone for now. But they also told me to not do any ab workouts or anything that would work my stomach. It is getting enough of a workout already ;)
I was also lucky enough to have an early ultra sound. Like I said we were not planning on this, so I had a slight idea on my due date. I went in for that yesterday and instantly we got to see the baby. It is so cute, it was a wiggling around and we got to see the heartbeat. It was so amazing to see! The ultra sound dated me at 9 weeks and 2 days. That would put my due date at March 4th, 2014. So I am just going to say I am due the first week of March.
There is our little prune. I am already thinking it is a girl, but we will have to wait about 11 more weeks to find that out. For now I will be hitting up garage sales and looking for baby stuff. I am kicking myself for getting rid of all of my baby stuff from Gavin. So if anyone has anything I can barrow that would be great.
I hope you all have a great weekend!
