Baby News


Well, if you haven't been on FB, or if you haven't talked to my Dad, or if you haven't seen me stuffing my face with anything within arms reach, then this is news to you.  I'm going have a baby!! 
There she is!  Yep she, I told you I am only having girls.  Just kidding.  But my fingers are crossed for another girl.  But a precious boy would be fine too, I just have NO IDEA what to do with boys and their 'parts.'  We have been trying for a few months and it was kinda crazy to me that it didn't happen on the first or second try.  No joke. When we went in to find out we were pregnant with Stella the ultrasound tech said, wow, you are very fertile, I am not sure which ovary it came from.  Oh great! 
So here's how it went down.  I'm not a BC fan.  I think I have been on BC for a total of like 3 months in my whole entire life.  I just know my cycle and I have about a three day span that it usually just happens around.  Well, this month three days past, then four, then five and well, then it settled in that I might have to face my fear of buying a pregnancy test.  Eeeee.  Why I have a pregnancy test buying phobia I have no idea.  But I do.  So I called up my husband and told him to go to the Wal-Mart in Granite City where he works and get me one.  I took a test and a + was there in a blink of an eye.  I thought woah that was fast, I am going to take the other one tomorrow morning.  Because everyone loves first morning pee and having to pee on a stick.  And yep another +.  So I called the doc, they asked me all the questions and yada yada.  Told me about how far along I was considering when my last cycle was and told me since it wasn't my first there was no need for me to come in until I was 6 weeks.  So I went in then, had all my blood work drawn, told them I had been having some cramps, but they took an ultrasound and everything looked good.  I got a call the next day from the doctor and he told me my progesterone levels were low.  The lower the levels, the higher risk of a miscarriage.  And no one wants to ever hear those words.  I freaked, I was a wreck.  He told me that he would put me on an extra pill to take to help increase them.  So far I have just had mild cramps, but we just wanted to wait it out a few weeks and be safe before we told everyone. 
So here I am 8 weeks and 5 days pregnant.  I will be 9 weeks on Friday.  Due August 26th.  Woohoo, it's going to be hot as hell and I'm going to be as big as a freaking house.  I'm sure the most pleasant person you could run into!!  Fun fun.  I promise I will spare you of the weekly belly shots.  Trust me, it ain't cute.  I don't wana look at my belly let alone let the whole world look at my belly.  And I won't tell you when my baby is the size of a squash or piece of fruit.  Promise.  But just fair warning if you put food within arms reach of me, it's fair game.  Nough-said.

Our internet has been down at work so I have been patiently waiting to get on Blogger to see if you posted anything yet! And woohoo...with a picture! Congrats again!! I am looking forward to you blogging about everything that's going on. And your dad...he was practically BEAMING when he was in here this morning.

Katie said...

Congratulations Cass! Im sooo excited for you guys!!! Im glad she is due in August. You will be ready to have a good time and lots of drinks for my wedding!! :)

Also you said you asked your husband to stop at the Wal-Mart in Granite City where he works. Did Josh have a career change??? At first I thought you meant he works there now, but after rereading it Im assuming he works in Granite City and you wanted him to stop at that Wal-Mart. Nothing wrong with Wal-Mart just was unclear.

Cassie said...

bahaha, no no he does NOT work at wal-mart. too funny.
