Anyway.. one of the biggest side effects of being pregnant i have had lately is.. SMELLS
Now, not food smells suprisingly (yet)
But perfume smells and the plug-ins that my fiance’s dad has in every corner of the house!!
What were/are some of the smells that bothered you when u were/are pregnant??
I post this on my other blog – Cristin Is Coupon Crazy
and figured i would post it daily on this site too!
and food suggestions would be great and very much appreciated. I need to wait untill the beginning of the month to get more fresh fruits and veggies..but suggestions about any kinds of fruits and veggies to add to the meal or ways to incorporate them would be great!
Tonight i am making radiatore pasta with ragu sauce(mushroom and green peppers) and some broccolli(because i think it would be good to get some greens in me for the baby:)
So..yesterday was my first appointment. It was a gloomy rainy day…I went thinking I was going to get an exam and ultrasound..but that wasnt what the appointment was all about. I was wondering when I signed in why I didnt have any paperwork to fill out.
First we got called to the back to talk to the financial lady. She was very nice and filled out an application for me to get Family care insurance.
After we spoke to her we had to go to the 2nd floor of the hospital to talk to the nurse and give her our history. She was also very nice. She gave me an envelope FULL of stuff to read. And in it was this months issue of Fit Pregnancy! There was also information on the hospital/maternity ward. And we found out that with the insurance i will be getting all of the classes offered at the hospital will be free!! She figured i was about 6 weeks along and my due date was April 20th. We answered a bunch of questions and she gave me a paper for bloodwork and an ultrasound.
We went back downstairs to where we came in to get the bloodwork. I was SUPER NERVOUS because i have had bad experiences getting blood taken. One time i passed out so i was totally scared to get my blood taken this time. There was an older nurse and i told her i was very scared. I made the mistake of looking at her pull out all of the viles she was going to be using. There were atleast 8 of them. So i asked her.. ” do u need to ill them up all the way?” yeah i was hoping she wouldnt need to fill them up too much. It took forever to find a vein. She finally did and she talked me through the whole time. Honestly the little prick in my arm DID NOT HURT. But i was so nervous that i started getting really hot and feeling faint. I kept asking if she was done yet and if i could have some water. She continued to talk to me and said i was doing great and that when we were done she would get me a nice cold cup of water. Finally it was over and i did a great job.. and didnt pass out!! Then came the dreadid urine sample. Ok, of course i had to pee.. but im telling you..its hard to pee in a cup! Why cant they put those things into the toilet t catch the pee and make my life so much easier then trying to squat and almost peeing on myself?? lol.
Then the appointment was over and we went home. Now the plan is to make an appointment for my first ultrasound for next tuesday (because the fiance is off) and i have an appointment for 9/1 to get a pap, breast exam, ect. Then comes the fun appointments!!
Thismorning i woke up and had some light pink blood after i wiped. I got really nervous and thought something was wrong. I did throw up so i think that was a good sign. There was no more bleeding and i read up on it and talked to a few people that told me that it is normal for this to happen. And i should be ok as long as im not in pain, cramping, or bleeding heavily. Thankfully it was only that one time and i am ok now.
I also went to a place called Birthright to get a pregnancy test confirmed so i can go to our first prenatal appointment tomorrow.
It is going to be an intake appointment so im not sure exactly what they are doing but i was told i may get an ultrasound. I can’t wait to see our baby on the screen!!
Oh and the test was also POSTITIVE at Birthright..
so i am indeed PREGNANT!
So this past tuesday (about a week ago) i realized that my period was a few days late. So i bought a couple of tests and they both came out POSITIVE! So i am pregnant! My fiance was happy but we were very scared to tell our parents. We told them and now everyone is very excited about the new addition to our families.
