I have my second doctor's appointment today. Lots of blood work and listening to the heartbeat again. Will had gotten called into work the night before my last appointment and he had to miss it. This time he gets to go :) I'm pretty stoked about him getting to be there with me. He'll get to hear the heartbeat live for the first time (he saw the video from the first apt). He'll also see and hear everything else the doctor has to say. I really like my doctor. He seems pretty good thus far!

I'm a little nervous about today's appointment just like I was with the last appointment. Everyone I've spoken to says that's normal. Just the mommy instinct kicking in wanting to make sure her kids are okay. I had some leg cramp type feeling yesterday along with lower back pain. I didn't sleep super well the night before and thought it may be related to that, or that it could be any number of things. But I woke up today and feel a hundred percent fine again so I'm not sure it's anything I need to worry about, though I may go ahead and mention it to the doctor today if I remember to.

Let's see, anything else?
Not really.
Pretty much everything about me lately is baby related :)
I wouldn't have it any other way though.

I get off work at 1 today so I can make it across town in time for the appointment. Olivia's aunt is coming over to pick her up, and I keep praying she comes earlier rather than later. I don't want her to be even 5mins late. If she is, I am supposed to call Laura and she will come wait with Livie until her sister gets there. I need every one of those 40 minutes to make it in time. The plan is for me to drive to the house, meet up with Will (should only take 20-25mins), and then right away head out for the doctor appointment, and from there it will only be 10 or so minutes tops. My only reason for concern was that my boss said she told her sister about it before and then she called her again last night to remind her and she said she forgot. So I'm hoping she remembers now! I really just can't afford for her to be late. If I have to, I'll just tell Will to meet me at Home Depot which is RIGHT next to my doctor's office and just drive seperately. But I soo soooooo want to drive together! We'll see though, we'll do what we have to do :)

I'm anxious to hear the heartbeat, and to ask the doc to check and make sure there's only one in there because soooooooooo many people keep saying that I'm having twins cause he was only listening for one heartbeat which is why he never heard the second lol. Twins run in both our families, but I really only want one. But, as long as everyone is healthy... that's really all I care about.

Okay... time for me to get ready to take off and get a move on. Watching Dora with Olivia and may take her for a walk or something if it gets warmer out. If not we'll just play inside and wait for her aunt to get here. 1 o'clock can't come soon enough!

Monday, Monday

Happy Birthday Mama!

Yesterday was Mom's birthday party (she didn't call it a party, I did) and I went over for dinner and cake. I brought her a present too. It was a candle holder that hold three little candles. I got here a few candles for it too :) She really seemed to like it! Makes me glad.

Today has basically moved along like any other Monday. I am soooooooo ready to be home though. I was up later than I wanted to be working on school work. So that cut into my sleepy time and baby and me like our sleep right now lol.

I get off work in just over an hour. Will has a dentist appointment at 3:45 but it won't be long I guess. We are both off work on Wednesday for the first time in ages and ages so we are planning a day trip somewhere, but we aren't sure where yet. We were thinking perhaps Chicago, but via status updates on facebook I found out through friends that Chicago just got snow! We don't want any of that! So we think maybe Indianapolis. We went there way back when... before he and I were even officially a couple. I think this time we would go spend the day at the zoo. It's supposed to be high 50s or low 60s and no rain or anything, so it would be lovely zoo weather!

I have another doctor's appointment one week from today. I will have to miss work for it, because originally I was supposed to be off but work changed my schedule around on me. Soooo I leave at 1 instead of 4 a week from today! Just check up and maybe bloodwork this time. No ultrasound still :( Not til I'm about halfway along unless they think it is necessary for some reason. But things are still going smoothly and I have no reason to suspect that things wouldn't be okay, so yeah. First u/s will be near the end of May, and by then we will be able to tell if it's a boy or girl. I sooo soooooo soooooooooo want to see my baby on that screen!

We've been talking about nursery themes and he can't seem to stop talking about a classic cars theme for a boy. I say no way jose! If my son were to like cars, cool, we'll do a nice, cool, car themed bedroom for him when he's older. When he's young, I want cutesy. Same with a girl, cutesy at first. I found some awesome Dr. Seuss themed nurseries online and want to go that way. When I was a little girl and had to go to the doctor for the seizure stuff, Mom always read One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish to me. So I wanted to work that in there too. We'll see.

I think I'm gonna take it easy for a bit now. One hour to go and I can't wait! Not that I don't love my job, but I just want to sleeeeeep!!! Ha ha! Later.

Can't sleep

I woke up at about 4:30 and struggled for over 45mins to get back to sleep. When I couldn't, I came downstairs to watch tv and decided to listen to music and get on facebook :)

This is my baby's song. I've probably spent the last twenty minutes replaying it over and over. I love it that much... gives me hope for my baby's future and that he or she will grow up in a world that maybe isn't so bad.

For those who don't know, I had my appointment on Wednesday and everything went PERFECTLY. I heard the little guy or girl's heartbeat! The doctor said it sounded perfect. So that was pretty amazing. I go back in in just over 2 weeks. No ultrasound. It wasn't necessary cause I knew there was no way I was wrong about the dates. So we are certain of the due date, which is October 8th.

I hate that Will works all night tonight and tomorrow. Perhaps it'd be a little easier getting back to sleep if he was here for me to cuddle up next to. I get to do the same thing tomorrow night. Fun. Not really, that was sarcasm lol.

Yesterday Will and I had lunch with my brother and sister and we had a great time. It was funny to hear him and Sarah duking it out over whether the baby is going to be a boy or girl. Man, this is going to be a loooooong ten weeks until we find out for sure!

That is us hearing the baby's heartbeat for the first time. I can't get enough of it. I love to watch it and replay it multiple times just to hear that amazing sound.

Okay, this should be a sufficient update for now. I am going to try and entertain the idea of more sleep... if not, then I'll eat some food or something and just watch tv on the couch and doze off and on. Either way, I'll be relaxing and you can't really beat that! Later guys.

It's after midnight...

And I am still awake. Why? Because as I was getting ready for bed, I noticed my large pile of dirty clothes on the floor. If I didn't take them down to the basement and throw them in the washer, then I wouldn't have any clean clothes to wear tomorrow. Soooooo I am waiting for them to finish washing so I can throw them in the dryer, and then I will go to bed. It's okay, I can sleep in, I don't work until 9:45 tomorrow.

I am eager to be done with tomorrow and just get it out of the way. My 9:45-6pm shifts are by far my least favorite. I'd rather wake up earlier, and get to come home earlier. But, oh well. If I can stick it out and get through tomorrow, I will be off on Wednesday and not have to work again until Thursday :)

Plus, I am on spring break. So my usual school work worries are not an issue as of right now!

The baby stuff seeeeems to be going well still. I go in on Wednesday, and am still uberly nervous about this. I want to hear the heartbeat or see the baby via ultrasound if possible. But I will settle for hearing the heartbeat if that's all they can do for me. I just want to know it is all okay and that I'm not doing anything bad that could possibly hurt the baby.

Right now, I'm thinking the washer may have stopped, so I am going to go and check on that. It will interrupt my South Park viewing, but it will also get me into bed sooner! I'm gonna sign outta here and will update later on once I know what's going on with my bun in the oven!

All things Baby...

I am 9 weeks pregnant today! Go me!
Will and I are still getting along very well and he is on board with the whole baby idea and being a dad in October. He is telling everyone he knows "I'm gonna be a daddy :)" It's pretty cute.
We pretty much decided to use the office as the baby room.
We've looked at wallpaper, but nothing too cute yet. He wants a South Park nursery, even refers to the baby as Cartman, but I said no to the South Park nursery, and no to calling the baby Cartman lol.
At 9 weeks, the baby is the size of a strawberry. You may or may not be able to hear the heart beat at a dr. appointment. But you should be able to see the baby and see the heart beat on the screen. I go in for my first appointment on Wednesday (my day off), and Will is coming with me. I am extreeeeeemely nervous about this doctor visit. I want so bad for them to tell me everything looks good, the baby appears to be healthy and developing appropriately, and all is well in the land of mommy and baby. If something is wrong, I have no idea what I'd do. But I'm trying to stay calm and stay positive. They may not even do an ultra sound, but I hope Hope HOPE they do! Nothing would be nicer than getting to see a shot of my beautiful baby all nestled in there. But hearing the heart beat will be pretty amazing too :)
Morning Sickness. Ack. It seems to come and go in waves. I get a few days where I am sick all the time, and then I get a few days where it's gone. But all my other symptoms stick around and there's no cramping/ spotting so I'm not worried about that, I've heard it's normal.
I want to look at baby stuff this weekend. Lots and lots of baby stuff. It would be awesome ha ha. I want to go to Babies R Us sooooo bad but haven't made my way over to that store just yet. I will I'm sure.
I'm tired, allllllllll the time. All I want to do today is sleep, and I am at work for another 6 hours. Plus I have to take my midterm before midnight and submit a paper. I have another class I have to do basically the same thing for by Sunday at midnight. Then it's spriiiiiiiiiiing breeeeeeeak!!! I can't wait for a week of not having to worry about school work!
I'm not sure if I've talked baby names on here yet or not. But we have them. If it's a boy, it will be:
William Richard Vitanyi IV... Liam for short. Such a mouthful! But he wants to carry on his name soooo bad, so I agreed.
For a girl it will be:
Elliana Susan Vitanyi... Ellie for short. My little Ellie Susie :) Honestly I wouldn't mind having a boy. But I soooo kind of want a girl lol. He sooooooo wants a boy though. We'll see what happens in a few months. He HATES that we have to wait nearly 3 full months before the gender can be revealed to us! LOL. It's killing me too, but I am surviving until then by trying to get used to the ideas of both.
I told him when he's teaching our son about cars he can be teaching me at the same time lol.
And he said when she does gymnastics or ice skating or something girlie, he will learn all about THAT at the same time :)
Overall things seem to be on the up and up. I am glad everything is going so well these days. I hope it continues to go this good! Fingers are crossed that they do an ultra sound on Wed and I can come back here and post pics of my little boy or little girl, and that everything is fine.
