Caught On Camera

That’s the stuff love is made out of right there.

Quick McFatty Monday Post

..on wednesday. LOL.

I gained 3 lbs this week. I’m also on my period and bloated as hell so I blame that.

I worked out in some form every single day this week. Even if it was just a quick 10 minute arm work out with free weights, I did something every single day. Which is massive for me.

I didn’t eat 100% right, but I didn’t do anywhere as poorly as I did a couple weeks ago.

Each week gets better. 🙂

Shots + PP Period

I figured I’d do a little update on Aidan’s 2 month shots. We went yesterday, the 26th. It wasn’t bad. He got 2 single shots, 1 4-in-1 shot, and a sippy thing of the Rotavirus. He cried for maybe 30 seconds during his shots, but as soon as it was over he was fine. He didn’t run a fever until about 8 hours after, and it was not really horrible. It was 100.4 under his arm, so I gave him some Infant’s Motrin and it went away very quickly. He did sleep basically all day yesterday, too. He wasn’t fussy though.. I was worried he might be.

After my “am I pregnant” freak out I still didn’t test. I decided to ride it out until Friday when I got paid to buy a test, and Friday right as I was going to leave work I started spotting. So, I didn’t buy a test. Over the weekend I didn’t spot AT ALL so I was going to buy a test on Monday after work, and low and behold I started actually bleeding on Monday afternoon. Yippee! What is a little less stellar is the cramps. I didn’t miss them. I can say though that after contractions my cramps don’t seem so bad anymore. Or maybe pregnancy eased off my cramps a bit like some women say. Who knows!

I’ve already started charting BBT again. I want to make sure I’m ovulating so that when we TTC#2 later this year I’ll already know what’s going on with my body. I really think I ovulated this cycle even though I wasn’t charting. About 2 weeks ago I had HORRIBLE ovary pain, and was absolutely miserable for pretty much a day. When I do ovulate I almost always get ovulation cramps and pain. So here’s to hoping that my body picked right up and started ovulating. I guess this cycle will tell me one way or another.

2 Month Letter

Dear Aidan,

Today I took a couple hours off of work to take you for your 2 month pediatrician appointment. I wanted to be there for you while you got your shots, so I could love you and comfort you. It struck me on my way back to work how LOVED you are. I literally wanted you for ever, and it took us 4 long years for you to be here. It’s amazing to me. I stare at you sometimes while you sleep and I wonder why God blessed me with you. It’s hard not to feel inadequate when I look at you, you’re so perfect! You’re by far the best thing I’ve ever done with my life.

Time is still trucking by, little one. You’re 2 whole months old. When I was pregnant 2 months sounded like a long time, but it’s gone by in the blink of an eye. You’re filling out your car seat, smiling all the time, about to move into size 2 diapers, rolling over from back to front occasionally, and your personality is shining through more and more every day. I don’t even have the words to tell you how much you mean to me. Thank you for being my son.

Love,
Mommy

8 Weeks

Aidan’s 8 weeks old! I can’t get over it. This week brought a lot of new things. He rolled over from back to front for the first time this week. He coo’s a lot now, and is still sleeping very well. We also took him in the shower for the first time. He was a champ, playing in the water and cooing and he didn’t even mind water getting on his face. It was very, very cute. Mike took some pictures. Don’t mind my obvious nakedness.. you can’t see anything though 😛

My work (and insurance agency) had the Gainsco Rolex race car up at our office for the day. We had the radio station out, the car, and cooked out hot dogs and ordered pizza. We got to sit in the car and get our pictures taken, etc. It was a lot of fun. Mike brought Aidan up so he could have his first race car experience. Mike’s really into cars, so it was a sweet moment for the two of them. Aidan was in a sleepy mood though, so he looks half asleep. LOL
Rebecca from Gainsco brought Aidan a gift, a stuffed dog that plays a lullabye, and a sleeper outfit. Here is Aidan with the dog, we named him Spot (original, no?).
Smiles are still 24/7. We literally have one of the happiest babies I’ve ever seen. We are still trying to catch a good one with our crappy camera. This is a smirk, at least. lol

Pee On A Stick?

So, I’ve been having early pregnancy symptoms. Which are ironically almost identical to PMS symptoms. I am not amused. Let’s do the run down, shall we?

Before I Knew I Was Pregnant:
-mildly nauseous at varying points in the day, never actually throwing up
-irritable
-super freaking tired
-period like cramps that started when I was due for my period. Didn’t go away until I was 10 weeks.
-sore boobs
-using the bathroom a lot
-mood swings like WHOA, tearing up over everything & it’s mother
-bloated as all get out

PMS Symptoms:
-irritable
-crampy
-bloated
-sore boobs
-sometimes mood swings resulting in crying

So as you can see, pretty similar. I’m currently bloated, irritable, mildly nauseous most days, crampy, using the bathroom a lot, crying over everything, & I can barely keep my eyes open.

All of those things could be explained by a possible pregnancy, PMS, OR post partum body trying to regulate itself again. My symptoms have been going consistantly for 2 weeks now. The only time I’ve ever had PMS symptoms for 2 whole weeks was when I was pregnant, the rest of the time it’s a day or three and boom, period.

Bah. I want 2 under 2 but I don’t really want to be pregnant again so soon (we were thinking of ditching condoms around August 2010). There are many margaritas to be drunk! We’ve used condoms everytime, so the odds are pretty good I’m NOT pregnant. Which is very good news for the margaritas of the world. (Can you tell what I missed while I was pregnant?)

So. Pee on a stick, or wait it out to see if Aunt Flow rearsher ugly head? I’m 8 weeks post partum and my OB seems to think I should of bled by now. Especially given the symptoms I’ve had. I’m not sure if I want to waste money, but I also should probably know so I can avoid those yummy margaritas in the future. Blah.
