How am I really feeling???

sometimes, alot of times, I feel like this Kenny Chesney song "There Goes my Life." Nothing & noone could as accurately describe my fear, thoughts, apprehension like Mr. Chesney. Don't get me wrong, my happiness isn't a front but a child right now wasn't in MY plans for me, but I am not the predictor of my destiny. I'm ecstatic about the life growing inside of me. I'm overwhelmed with emotion actually, but some of that emotion is fear of the unknown.

Sonogram...follow up!!

Heyyy all!!

So as you all saw in a previous post, I've had my first sonogram done! That was taken on Wednesday June 29, 2011 and it revealed that I was 6 weeks, 3days pregnant with what seemed like a happy, very tiny baby...maybe girl?!?!? LOL but no, a baby, that so far seems very healthy!!

Anywho, that day I also received my prenatal vitamins because good mommies to be take vitamins along with a doctor's care, healthy diet! FAST FORWARD TO A WEEK AND TWO DAYS LATER >>>>>> I was at the doctor again to have a sonogram follow up, take another sonogram and receive some literature that should lead me on a path to a healthy, picture perfect pregnancy. {will have that sonogram up when I can steal it back from my mom}

Anyway, baby was less active this time, but that heart was beating uberSTRONG!! During this appointment, I According to the Babycenter website, the baby's "hands and feet are emerging from developing arms and legs." The baby has doubled in size, but is still very small. They compare the size of the baby to that of a blueberry (awwwww)!!!! The baby is still considered any embryo at this stage!

It was a brief doctor's visit, but I received a wealth of knowledge like what a healthy diet for a pregnant woman should be...which includes drinking a quart of milke a day!?!?!? A DAY!?!?!? LAWD, I am going to need some prayer to get through that one, chocolate milk maybe? Ugggh! Gotta do what I gotta do though, but milk is not my best buddy.

I also found out that it is okay for me to exercise just as I was before my pregnancy...WHOOOO HOOOO!!!!! I was too happy to find that out and wanted to go the gym as soon as possible. My doctor did make a note that activity of that nature will begin to taper off as baby develops more, but for right now...Elyptical here I come...**OPERATION MILF** LOL!*!*!*!*

To end it here, my next appointment is Friday August 5, 2011 at 11am...4 weeks away! I assume there will be many changes between now and then! Until then I will keep my followers updated on how i'm feeling, what i'm feeling, and the different changes expected from week to week. Tomorrow Sunday July 10, 2011 I will be 8 weeks preggers!!!!

Due Date...........

February 19, I type this,

I am now 7 weeks and 4 days!!!

Moment of truth....

Yea, so the moment of truth came a week after I took the test. The doctor confirmed with a happy jumping, barely there baby and heartbeat, that I was 6 weeks and 3 days preggers!!!!

Still confused and full of emotion I couldn't helpt but to cry when I heard the heartbeat. It made everything so REAL! It also confirmed for me that because He chose me, I needed to try my best to fulfill whatever purpose He had for me through this child!

*tears* and more *tears*

Awwwww...and let me say, I had NO idea I was 6weeks!!!!! But the exhaustion and morning sickness definitely came soon after this!

I am loving this song!!!!!

Surprised, stunned, happy..Maybe??

Yes, I was very happy, but my happiness wasn't short of some confused nerves!!! "Tora are you ready for this?" was what my conscience asked as my smile faded from my face. That was on Tuesday June 21, life may have just changed forever was my next thought. As you can imagine as the day progressed, I proceeded along with jumpy nerves, tickles of fear, smiles, teary eyes, and a soul full of uncertainty....

Like most women, I immediately started watching what I consumed, the things I did, places I went and the way I thought...mommy mode was upon me instantly! We live in a world where many options are available to me and believe me I considered them ALL! Thinking nonstop...WHAT AM I GOING TO DO... Abortion? Never again! Adoption? Not a chance! Have this baby? Yes, Jesus, and I will do my BEST!!!

With that said, I dialed up my doctor and my first appointment was set! The rest of my life has just started :)))

My results were courtesy of first response!
