Crazy how time flies

First day home from the hospital

 WOW!  I can't believe it has been 4 months since our sweet angel has come into our lives.  I have loved every crazy minute of it.   She is such a sweet and happy baby!

2 weeks and counting

I can't believe how fast time has gone by.  I am 38 weeks today.  2 more weeks until my due date.  At my last Dr. appointment I was dilated to a 3 and 60% efaced.  Ihave started to get more excited and a little nervous for labor and delivery but am SO excited to finally get to meet my little girl.  We have chosen the name Ashlyn.  If Mark decides that he wants to give her a middle name, it will be Taylor.  So her full name would be Ashlyn Taylor Daley.

Let the countdown begin!!

It is so crazy to think that I am 30 weeks on Friday! 10 weeks left! I can't believe how fast time has gone by since we found out we were pregnant. I have been lucky and have had an easy pregnancy. I didn't have morning sickness and minus the kidney stone and bladder infection I have felt great!! I hope it stays this way for the last stretch.

Just over half-way!!

So tomorrow I will be 21 weeks along. I can't believe how fast the time has gone since we found out we are going to be parents. I hope the last half goes just as fast!! We had our 20 week ultrasound last week and found out we are having a GIRL!! Mark says he didn't care what gender the baby was, he is just happy we are having a baby. I think he really wanted a boy but I know he will love our little girl just as much!! Everything looked good. Growth and development is all right on track with where it should be.

Not so fun Monday......

Monday was not too fun for me. Sunday night my back started hurting all of a sudden around 9:30 and I knew it was not going to be good. Monday morning I woke up in constant pain. I knew I had a kidney stone so I called the Dr. but of course he wasn't in due to the day before being Christmas. Not sure of what I was able to do for the kidney stone or pain due to being pregnant, I called my dad. He tells me go to the E.R. UGH I do not want to go to the E.R. I text Mark and ask him what to do and he says to go so I buck up and take myself to the E.R. I was there almost all day (go figure) Once they took me back the drew some blood and did some tests to make sure I didn't have any sort of infection and gave me some pain meds thru an I.V. A little bit later the nurse came in to see how I was doing and asked how my pain was.. Still there.. So she gives me more meds for the pain and once again no relief. She ended up giving me pain meds 4 different times with the last time being a different type and finally getting some relief. So now with the pain bearable and them pumpi9ng me full of fluids, they wheel me off fo an ultrasound to check the kidneys and what do ya know- I have a kidney stone! The only good thing to come out of the whole experience is that they did an ultrasound of baby as well so I got to see that everything is going good. The guy doing the ultrasound says to me that he thinks it still a little too early to be sure but he thinks we are having a girl (don't tell mark...LOL) I chuckle to myself because I know how bad Mark wants a boy and can tease him more about having a girl. All in all it was not a fun day. However, it was a relief to see baby is doing good.

Let the prenatal Dr. appointments begin.....

I have my first of many Dr appointments tomorrow. I am excited to have another ultrasound to see how baby is growing. I had one at 7 weeks with the specialist. There is just one and everything looked great! It was crazy to see the baby, it made it so much more real. We are super excited and can't wait for June to meet our little one!!

The BEST news we have gotten in a LONG time....

The last year has been crazy with visits to the Dr. for fertility testing. In May we decided to go see a specialist and he advised that I have an exploratory laparoscopy. I had the surgery in July and they found advanced endometriosis. In August and September we did artificial insemination and found out almost 4 weeks ago that I am pregnant. I am due in June and we couldn't be more excited. I have an ultrasound on Friday to check viability. They also had me to a blood test to check my HCG levels. The nurse from the specialist office told me that they were a little high. We will find out this week if we are having one baby or if it is twins. I am making a goal to blog more often to keep everyone updated.
