7 Weeks pregnant



week 7 has been a very eventful week! After my first internal sonogram , at 5weeks 3days, where we found two sacs (one baby had developed a fetal pole the other seemed not to be developing at all) Kevin and I agreed it would be best if we saw an OBGYN and forgo the whole a home birth process. so fast forward to today... I had my first visit with my new doctor, It went better than I had planned!

We  had another internal sonogram to check on the babies (baby)  ,the extra sack was gone, but we have one healthy 7week 2day growing baby, we knew that this would probably happen since the other baby/sack had shown no signs of developing. This is called vanishing twin syndrome where the other "baby" is absorbed in to the body...however I don't know if I really qualify since we would never had known about the "twin" had I not begged for a sonogram so early.

Also since it was an internal sonogram we got to hear the Heartbeat!! Brooke was so sweet and kept saying "my baby, that's my baby" And at that moment it all became so real that we are going to be a family of FOUR!


A few symptoms that I'm having this week;
  • Morning sickness, I feel like everyday I discover something new that either has me gagging or running to the bathroom to throw up. (I never had anything more than nauseousness with Brooke)
A few things I cant see or smell at this point;
  1. HOT DOGS!
  2. cheese
  3. chunky yogurt
  4. Anything carbonated
  5. DOGS!!
  • Fatigue, luckily Brooke still naps, so I can, otherwise I don't think I would make it through the day.
  • bloating, with my morning sickness I've actually lost weight but because of the bloating my jeans are already tight (I had to bring out the belly band!) HA HA

Brooke and Baby Z (3 - 5 weeks)

In an attempt to get Brooke involved with this pregnancy, I thought it would be cute to take a picture each week of her holding something the size of our baby, for that week. I have a app that updates me each week and I'm so exited for next weeks photo shoot. 

Our baby is the size....
Of a poppy seed (3 - 4 weeks) 



A apple seed (at 5 weeks)

* The apple seed looks huge compared to the tiny little poppy seed.
 Baby Z has done so much growing last week!!

Family Trip 2011

Last Friday my family, Brooke and I loaded up and headed for a mini vacation in Wimberly. Unfortunately Kevin had to work an was not able to come. The car ride was surprisingly fun Brooke was in a great mood the whole 5 hour drive!! I however was recovering from having all my wisdom teeth removed the day before and was in pain/ sleeping the whole drive. (Thanks Aunt Katie for keeping Brooke entertained during our vacation)

Since I was trying to recover I was only able to participate about 1/4 of the time (other than my constant snapping of pictures) Brooke was going full blast though with shopping, hiking, swimming, Deer watching and exploring. She really enjoyed herself and time with my family!

POOL TIME!!




Nap time day one.

Exploring the creek bottom.


2 1/2 mile Hike.




Nap time after the hike.

Walking to see the dinosaur tracts.

Relaxing in the hammock.


Pregnant weeks 3 - 4

  After one month of TTCing (more like 22 days) we found out today (5/25/11) that we are expecting baby #2!!! We are trilled, I took a test first thing this morning, knowing that it was the very first possible day to get a positive test result, almost instantly it popped up PREGNANT!!! I took two more test to confirm the first test, the result....yep still pregnant!



Kevin and I decided to wait to tell everyone (other than the few close friends and my family) until I'm 14 weeks and out of the danger zone, or at least until my first appointment with my midwife,  OR I CANT WAIT ANY LONGER !!
Week 3



Week 4
