8weeks + Love for my sister

Ok so I can pretty much sum up how I feel on a timeline. It's getting pretty reliable, unfortunately.
6am-3pm: Sluggish, nauseous, and irritable. All around blah (yes, that is a medical term, LOL)
3pm-5pm: Starting to feel human
5pm-9pm: Human, just tired, random cramping/headache whatever
9pm-5am: my best time. I feel more awake. (which is unfortunate considering this is sleepy time) heartburn may kick in now, but it's tolerable for the most part.

Now, time to spread some love to my sister. (She is older by 6 years, btw)
I have been feeling quite depressed due to how people have been responding to my pregnancy. I am really trying hard to shake it off but it's difficult. Hubby and I are thrilled and that is all that should matter right? Well, pathetically, I have been letting other things get me depressed. I am still working on that.
She came over the other day and we talked all afternoon into early evening. She kept mentioning Peep. She kept asking questions and being excited. It was so thrilling for me. Outside comments here and there with either my oldest daughter or hubby, I really don't have anyone I can chat with. This is very exciting so it was nice to have another female adult share my joy.
We even discussed names. My girl options are set, but goodness me I can not come up with a boy name for nothing! ha ha. Good thing I still have a while!

7 weeks

So I am now 7 weeks. My biggest complaint is exhaustion. How can anyone stay this tired all the time? My goodness. I guess it's true what they say about every pregnancy being different because I have never been this continuously tired and this is baby #3!
Oh as a lovely bonus, Peep has decided nightly heartburn would be a nice treat. Add that to the tiredness and occasional tingling boobs and I am one happy camper, haha. I don't think the MS really needs to be reported. It's there and doesnt' look to be going anywhere any time soon, so it kinda goes without saying.
Now that I have vented, I can honestly say: WHO CARES!?!?! I am so over the moon thrilled and anxious to meet this new little one. So what if I have all this crappy feeling right now. It is all so worth it. I fall deeper and deeper in love with this little bundle everyday!

Shall we call this Premonition? I don't know, guess we'll find out in 12-14 weeks!!
So Daddy naps Sebastian most days, and today he fell asleep along with him. He awoken in a jolt and was panicked. (He explained the whole thing to me later)
Turned out, he fell asleep, but woke up-in his dream. The time was appropriate for an hour nap. Sebastian was sitting in the floor with a little girl. Sebastian was about a year older and the girl was about 6ish months. He called both kids by name and said to be still, he was going to get mommy to watch them while he went potty. He yelled for me to come take over, but I didn't come. He went to use the restroom and when he returned, both small children where in the bed playing. He laid them down and they went back to sleep.
Then hubby woke up for real. And panicked because he didn't see his youngest daughter! Then reality caught up to him and he relaxed.
Oh and the little girls name he used in the dream was one of my top two favorite girl names!!
Hubby says he can not ever remember having a dream that felt SO real.
So, kinda funny huh? We both do not care at all which gender we have but if it is female, does this mean this was meant to be her name?? Especially considering I never told him how much I love the name!
We are SO not the type of people that rely on dreams, and stuff but this was too weird for us to not make a note of. This sort of thing just doesn't happen to us often!

So today I had to go to another DR. Apparently the 1st one I went to wasn't good enough to verify my pregnancy. Nice huh? My OB cost $175 to verify pregnancy. I preferred to skip that step if possible, so I went to a clinic for verification. Not good enough.
So today I went to another clinic and took a test. Holy Moly am I pregnant! Oh my! The lady was all "now it could take 5minutes for the results to show and even the faintest line is still positive" as she is dripping the urine drops into the test well. I looked down and gasped. The test line was dark before the control line is showed. Then in about 15-20 seconds the control line appeared. My test line was still darker. It was cute. The lady was so excited and adorable. She is all "Oh hun, you are SO pregnant! I have never seen a test this dark, " etc etc.
And then she prayed with me and Peep. And for our family. I don't know why, but I was so beyond moved today. Now, I believe in God but do not consider my self to hold an actual title. I'm not "christian" or "catholic" or whatever. I have never found my box I completely fit into. But I think I want to now more than ever.
I went to this location for verification for both of my other children. I have had them pray over me and my family both times. (This is a Christian organization), and now I had that for Peep.
For some reason I felt this was meant to be. I was meant to be denied by my OB for having a different clinic's paper. I was meant to go back here. Peep didn't have his or her prayer yet. I feel things will start looking up now. This experience today gave me a whole different outlook on life and I needed this. God really does show up when you need Him most. It's time I REALLY realize that.

MS?? Nooo

I really hope I am not getting morning sickness already. I feel very queasy a lot lately and extra tired. I don't feel like eating, but eating helps. It's all so very stereotypical right now. Crackers, bread, anything Dr. Adkins would disapprove of, Peep wants it.
I have the standard book "What to Expect When You're Expecting". It;s a list of possibly pregnancy symptoms. Yeah I have them all! With baby number 1, I barely had anything the entire pregnancy. With baby number2, I had a few things here and there. This baby? Everything.
I hope this isn't a precursor as for what's to come. I am praying for an easy and healthy pregnancy like I had with my daughter!

The Blog has been Revealed!

So I told my friend H about this blog. I figured that it would get out eventually, no need to keep it personal anymore. Besides I like feedback, lol
 Suppose this is just how it goes. One blog leads to another blog, ha ha.
This is still the candid version of my pregnancy. Some things may spill over from blog to blog (like u/s pics ) or whatever, but this blog's main focus is my journey from Mommy of 2 to 3. My other blog can handle everything else, lol.
So I hope whoever decided to happen across this one will enjoy the ride! I'm looking forward to it, that's for sure!!

Letting Everyone Know!

So I made a shirt for Sebastian and had him enter the Grandparents kitchen. It said "Big Brother" on it. It took them forever to figure it out. I had to tell them. My mom already knew. She had been one of the people convincing me I was pregnant, haha
So MIL mustered up a hug after a few minutes and FIL has still yet to say anything really positive about the whole thing.  I am hoping it is still processing cuz he is my favorite and I don't want to upset him, but I am thrilled!

While we were out, I stopped by my sister's house and let them see his shirt. They all got it instantly and were so excited about it. I loved their reaction, so sweet!!

oh and here is how I shared the news on my other blogClick Me!!
and then I simply added that link to my FB page. I had ONE person from Facebook to read it. Shows who really reads my FB status, which is a bit upsetting cuz I see people online that I consider good friends and nothing. No comment, phone call, etc. Oh well, their loss!

OH and Baby was nicknamed Poppy because that is the size of baby when I found out. A tiny Poppyseed. Name is now Peep, because baby is due on Easter.

Sharing the News

Telling Daddy
So I don't think hubby has still fully processed this and I can not tell you his feelings.
I have been showing the tests since the 1st one. he has gone through this entire process with me. He doesnt like how faint the lines are. The clinic confirmation has helped him and he says he is really happy, but he is acting different than with the other kids. BUT they were comletely planned to. I don't know, maybe I am reaing to much into it. He told me he's happy, so I will have to believe him

Telling Skylar:
I wanted to think of a cute way, but I couldnt hold out long enough. I simply handed her my test and let her read it. lol. She was beyond thrilled and knew what it meant instantly. Simple way to tell her but it was great. It was one on one, just me and her and we chatted and I answered any concerns or questions. It was really special and it's moments like this when I can not believe how mature she is.


Wow! It's offical. I have a due date from a clinic and everything! April 9th (funny cuz everything online says the 8th but whatever)
So recap:
7/30: very faint positive than showed up fast but vanished after a couple hours
7/31: faint positive that stuck around
8/1: (at like 3am lol) light positive
8/1: Went to clinic and light positive there too!

First Reactions/4 weeks

So I have completed accepted that I am pregnant. I am so excited I could scream, but I won't just yet, LOL. I am waiting until I get it verified. I have told 2 friends.
 T was so completely excited for me and talked with me for 2 days about my tests, the vanishing aspect, everything. She had a bunch of questions and completely seemed over the moon. It was a wonderful reaction and made me very happy. She helped ease a lot of my fears and concerns. We even named this baby together lol. So considering baby is the size of a Poppy seed, the name is Poppy. T and I couldn't be more happier about Poppy!!
I also told my friend H. Her reaction was more subdued. She offered a polite "congratulations" and asked me who all knew. I said, "just us, T, and hubby" she said "oh" and that was that. Our convo's topic was changed. I tried to bring it back and asked what she thought and she said "I'm excited" and changed topic again. Truthfully I did expect more of a reaction like T gave, but it is what it is. Not everyone is going to be as Neurotic as T and I, hahaa.
Tomorrow I am planning on going to Dr and have it confirmed by a pro. I still have a HPT left so I will take that too, lol. I like watching my line grow darker each day. It's nice.
So, Poppy is 4 weeks and considered an embryo at this point and looks like this

Isn't Poppy going to be gorgeous??

Party of 5

OMG I'm pregnant. I really am. The test was positive today and it did not vanish. Jeff still isn't convinced because my line is light, but I have had several tweaks and not a single person doubted this test. And their are a LOT of naysayers on in the tweaking group.  omg omg omg, I am soo happy but soo completely overwhelmed and nervous. This wasnt planned. Yes, I may have kinda hoped for it, and anytime you don't use protection you are technically planning imo, but WOW. I didn't think letting nature take it's course would be so fast!! HOLY CROW
here are some pics of todays test
Taken at 4 minutes after peeing

Taken at 2 1/2 hours to see if it vanished again lol

An adorable tweak, love the heart!!
Ok, so I made this ticker and it says I'm 4 weeks and O days but technically I found out yesterday, lol. Not sure if this ticker will keep changing, so I want to write down what it was the day i got it so I'll remember
Loading Ticker...

Also I found this and think it's so precious

7/30/11 Brought Confusion

Soooooooo I took a test today. It was a very faint positive! OMG I couldn't believe it, I am in completed and total shock. I showed Jeff, so much for being cute about it! He said he definitely saw pink but wasn't totally convinced because the line was so light. UGH!! Doesn't he know a line is a line!! So I snap a pic (pic was taken about 4ish minutes after I tested)

Do you see it? Can you see the faint second line? (click on pic to make it larger, lol) I posted this on a test tweakers site and they all said w/o a doubt, this is a positive test! OMG! OMG! OMG!
Fast forward an hour, after I got offline from the tweakers. I went back to look and gawk at my beautiful test. One line...WTF?? How can that be?? Where did my other line go??? A negative test stared back at me. HUH??
So back to the Internet. Apparently you aren't supposed to look at them after 10 minutes because the test can potentially get wonky....well this isn't my first trip to the rodeo and all my other positive tests, STAYED positive. ugh, confusion sets in. Is this just a silly test? Is this simply setting myself up for a Chemical Pregnancy?? oi

Stay tuned, I shall try again in the morning.
