not as worried...

ok.. so this morning... the spotting seemed to have disappeared... so it is really not a big worry at this time. After much research, and talking to friends who have been through pregnancies, I have decided that it's probably nothing, and that I'll call the midwives if it happens to become worse or more painful (it's not painful at all at this time... ) I think I may just be a little bit paranoid. But that's because I don't know what to expect.
I did however let the midwives know that Angela and I will be happy using their service.

So, I have got myself all worried. Today, I started the day with some brownish discharge. Now, it is pinkish in colour. It is far from being "blood" but it is more like cervical mucus with a pink tinge. So of course, I am assuming the worst. I will call the midwives tomorrow morning. It is also worrying me that I haven't really felt "sick" like I use to. My bbs are still sore though.
The book I bought (your pregnancy week by week) says that having some spotting during pregnancy is not uncommon, but that you should contact your health care professional as soon as possible.
Well, ASAP will be tomorrow. I have to call to confirm that I would like the midwives to care for me first off, but I will do that tomorrow and then just ask about this spotting.
Fingers crossed. I'll keep the blog updated as things progress.

Have me some quality Neighbours

Ya... ummm.. that was fun. Last night I was startled out of bed by the sound of my neighbours fighting. SWEET. 3:00am. I love listening to that kind of stuff... ya, right!... Thanks neighbours. So it seems in the unit one over from us, a fellow was drunk. How do we know? well that's because the woman kept yelling it at him... "You're drunk, get out of here".. then the man would respond... "ya, I'm F*@%en drunk, I don't F*@%en care what you F@*%en say, I'm F*@%en not going F#@*en anywhere, you F&%#en bitch etc etc. Yes, it seems that when you are a drunk at 3:00am, your vocabulary is very limited.
I would have been more angry about being woken up at that time when I had to get up for work at 6, but I had to pee anyway. ;)

Today, Angela and I go to meet the midwives. They called me here the other day and said that they would certainly take me on for my pregnancy and birth care. We are to go to an "information session" tonight at the library and then it is just up to us if we want them or not. I am thinking we probably will. I have only every heard good things about midwives. I took the day off, just for this session. I could have switched shifts with my co-worker, but I decided to just take a day off. I will have to stop doing that though, and save all my time up for emergencies.
Still feeling really tired all the time, and some of the time, I feel really sick, but that is usually managable with a little chewing gum. For some reason it takes away that yucky feeling.

long time no post

Don't worry. I'm still here. I don't really have a good excuse for not posting, except that I haven't been spending much time on the computer. I have been so super tired. I am off today for Easter, so, I am doing laundry and I will use this time to catch up on blogs. My house also needs a good cleaning. Oh man I've been so tired and lazy.
I went to the doctor on Thursday. He is saying my due date will most likely be November 28. He has put in a referral to the Midwives, but isn't sure they will be able to take me on, as I take some medication (all very safe). He said that he isn't sure that they can take people who are on medication because they have very strict guidelines.
My brother and sister in law gave me some fun baby stuff on Saturday. Just some clothes and shoes and a few bottles. The clothes are for little boys, but I would definitely dress a girl in most of them. Just maybe not for a special occasion.
Angela wants to find out if it is a boy or a girl. So does our donor. ;) I don't think I want to find out. I sort of want it to be a surprise. I have one friend who insists on knowing what it is, so that she can plan. But, if in the end, I don't want to find out, no one else is finding out either.. lol. It is actually a hard thing to decide. I mean, i would let Angela find out because she has as much right to know as I do, but I am worried that she would begin to call it by it's gender specific pronoun. Secretly, I am hoping that it's very uncooperative and won't let us find out. That's right baby, keep those legs folded up in front. Don't give us the choice.
I am now just past 7 weeks. It feels like time is passing slowly. The baby is the size of a bean. A small bean. I wonder if there could be twins in there? Oh boy. That would be a shocker.
I have to wait for a call to find out where to go for my follow up and all that, so I don't even know when I would be getting an ultrasound. It doesn't matter too much to me, I trust that the professionals know what they are doing. I just think it makes it more real to see that little thing is actually in there with a heart beating.
I have blood work scheduled for tomorrow morning. Just standard things I suppose.

As for morning sickness, I don't get it. Well I don't have it in the traditional sense of it being "morning" sickness. I do however get Bedtime sickness. Every night when I get to the bathroom to brush my teeth, I start to gag a little bit. Not sure what brings it on. And then, when I get into bed, I have full nausea. I haven't actually thrown up until last night. And it didn't wait until I was in the bathroom either. Angela and I had gone to our friends' place for the evening, to socialize, and on the way home... (I was driving) Yep, out of no where, B-A-R-R-R-R-F. I had to quickly stop the car on the side street, and open my door to let it out. I managed to make it all the way home before it happened again. I'm pretty sure I didn't lose any viable nutrients though, as I had just eaten Mc*Donald's cinnamon buns.
Other issues I seem to be having are:
1) sudden hungries- All of a sudden out of no-where I'll be starving, and so hungry, I feel sick and shaky
2)Big sore boobs - That get in the way a lot!
3)Weird Dreams all night -every night
4)Trouble sleeping through the night
That's all I can think of for now, all in all, not bad at all.

I am sure the dogs know that there is a baby in there. The other day, Bennie, the smallest dog, (shi-tzu x poodle x terrier of some kind) was sitting on my lap. We had a few people over for a small birthday party for Angela. Well some of them the dog didn't know, and he kept growling at them when they would come close to me. He only did it with me though. He's never been like that. He also spends a lot of time sitting on my lap with his head placed right on my uterus.
Cookie, the bigger girl dog, (pug x beagle x Boston terrier) competes with Bennie to get the closer seat to me when we are sitting on the couch. Both dogs, will leave Angela's side to come and sit with me if it becomes an option.
Well anyway, Last night was a rough one. I think maybe Cookie had decided to show us just a taste of what we're in for. She started whining at 4:30 this morning, so I had to go down and check on her. She went out-side, and wasn't pleased that it was raining, so she stood at the door waiting to come back in. After several prompts from me, She finally went and made number 2. So, I figured that was what the whining was about. Well, at 5:50, she started whining again. Now, this is 10 minutes before my alarm was set to go off, so I just got up and I tried letting her out again, and again, she just stood at the door, so I let her back in, and tried giving her some food, figuring she was hungry, but she didn't eat. I finally figured out that she wanted a walk. But that will have to wait until after work, as I didn't have time to take her on a walk this morning before work. She better not think either that we're going to start getting up at 4:30am to walk her. LOL.
I figured it won't be as bad with a baby, because at least I won't have to come to work and be pleasant after the all night wakings.
