FC: Baby Olave
1: I I | Congratulations It's..... two blue lines! | Surprise | It was a Tuesday night on Sept. 18, 2007, I was home in the bathroom. I had just came from CVS about 5:30pm when I took the pregnancy test and saw it was POSITIVE! I was crying, in total shock, in amazement, and scared all at one time...I just didn't know where to put my head. All I knew we were happy and Blessed!
2: belly week 2 | Possible date/ occasion of conception: I had my suspicions but it makes no sense to me all I know it was 08-22-07. Doctors are never on point. | Aug. 23, 2007 | Making your mark
3: belly week 3 | My earliest pregnancy symptoms were when I had the first craving for an Italian hot dog. I wanted it with the works a lot of peppers and onions. We rode around NY city for about two and a half hours looking for a hot dog stand that sold one. Funny thing is I don't like Italian hot dogs! | Aug. 30, 2007
4: CRAZY | Ahh... Morning sickness! I didn't so much vomit but had a lot of nausea. Oh my God it was horrible! I have never grasped for so much air in my life. | belly week 4 | Sept. 4, 2007
5: AMAZING | Sept. 13, 2007 | This is the week I found out I was Pregnant! Only 5 days later. The time of the day I felt the worse was in the evening. Anything I would crave I would eat and then get nausea. What I didn't crave I would get nausea before eating and then not want to eat. | belly week 5
6: belly week 6 | Sept. 20, 2007 | My stomach churns at the mere scent of all types of fried chicken except home made. My energy level has been a bit sluggish. This week I had to cancel a Gyn appt. because now I need an Obgyn.
7: belly week 7 | Sept. 27, 2007 | There wasn't any type of food on this planet that would clam my belly. I was anxious to go to my Obgyn appt. I thought I was going to hear your heart beat.
8: Visit #1 Date: October 05, 2007 Our Obgyn was: Dr. Choma. Our due date: May 15, 2008 My current weight: 178lbs Notes from visit: I didn't get to hear your heart beat because you were too small still. I got my first bottle of prenatal vitamins. By this week I started with the bad mood swings. | Oct. 04, 2007 | belly week 8
9: Oct. 11, 2007 | belly week 9 | Visit # 2 Date: October 15, 2007 Time: 2:00pm Weight: 178lbs Notes from visit: They took about 5 tubes of blood and some urine.
10: Oct. 18, 2007 | belly week 10 | Visit #3 Date: October 18, 2007 Weight: 178lbs Notes from visit: My first sonogram.. My first glimpse of you! Man kind has yet to make a word that can describe the emotions, I went through, just looking at you wiggle you tiny hands and tiny feet. Yey! My belly is now noticeable and now after seeing you I know I'm not just fat. I'm Prego!
11: Oct. 25, 2007 | belly week 11 | Snapshot of my life..... I always listen to the radio ..97.9 fm & 105.9fm. I went to the movies recently to watch Saw 4 Top news at the moment is : Time to set the clocks back an hour.
12: Belly Week 12 | This week marks the end of my first trimester.... Reflections: Well I just found out a Babies 'R' Us is opening close to me! So far so good except the nausea part. Yuk! By now everyone knows about you.. even on MySpace! | Nov. 1, 2007
13: My Cravings & Aversions | 1 | 2 | 3 | Italian hot dog from NY | Chinese spare ribs w/ extra BBQ | A lot of orange juice and oranges | Fried Chicken | Fried Chicken | Fried Chicken | Hello everyone. Well, where do I start. Well I'm pregnant for one. I'm in my first trimester and I already want all this to be over. I don't have the morning sickness but I do have the nausea, which I think is worse. I've lost about 12lbs so far and I eat less than when I wasn't prego. People say try to sleep now cause after their born you won't sleep anymore, but in a reality I can't sleep now. I have to pee every 2 hours in the middle of the night and thats on an average basis. I can go like 4 times every 20 minutes. It's bad! But I guess its a part of being prego. | First Trimester
14: AT this time I started to bleed and have a lot of abdominal pains. I was placed on bed rest for almost a month. | November 07,2007 It is the day I will never forget because we heard your heartbeat for the first time. It sounded something like a miracle. Unfortunately it wasn't at the right time or day I heard it, because I was rushed to the ER due to pains and bleeding. But I knew everything was going to be OK when I heard the palpitations of your tiny heart! | belly week 13 | Nov. 8, 2007
15: When I more or less Popped: Oh My God! From the very beginning that I knew I was Pregnant When I wore My very first maternity outfit: I bought my first pair of jeans for a parade the foundation was having in New York. | Well I missed my cousins baby shower, that I really wanted to go to. I got the flu shot this week. | belly week 14 | Nov. 15, 2007
16: Belly Week 15
17: Belly Week 16
25: Children reinvent your world for you.
33: "a new baby is like the beginning of all things, hope, a dream of possibilities."
34: It was so fun to watch you try your very first solid food! You made the most hilarious face when tasting a lemon and you didn't care for summer squash either. Your favorites were bananas, sweet potatoes and avocado. I can't wait until you are old enough to start learning to cook. We're going to have so much fun in the kitchen together.
