I can't beleive I'll know the gender on Wednesday (providing the little thing is not hiding it's area from us). It's so exciting! I can finally start to buy baby things and think a bit more about the name. I've alreayd got the girl name, and I am 100% UNdecided of any boy names. bigbootyakasha and apreciousdrama BOTH had dreams that I'm having a girl. My mother has all kindsof boy vibes and I'm just not going to speculate until I know for sure. I've heard that even after they tell you the gender that it could be wrong. Anyone have any experience or stories about that?

Also, I've finally gotten a good amount of maternity clothing. thank god. It's so sad that I can't wear normal jeans anymore. but, I kind of like the stretchy ones with the panel thing. heh. I am also loving the maternity tops that I've found thus far. I am pretty much only buying things that I can wear after pregnancy (on top) and for the jeans, well - I'll pass those along to friends, maybe margravine if she ever grants me a neice or nephew.

If my child is born on time (may 21), they will share a birthday with Biggie, yes - Notorius B.I.G. Also: Fairuza Balk, Mr. T, Ving Rhames, and Judge Reinhold. that rocks. ps - I share mine with Sophia Loren, who I adore. find out who you share your special day with.

First doctor visit... [Jan. 8th, 2005|01:24 pm]
brooklynbeth
So, I signed up for an HMO and social services apparently never did their half of the paperwork so I was assigned the default one, HealthNet. I had chosen Amerigroup and now I have to start all over again in choosing doctors, and gathering information. God, benefits are so much different when the government is in charge. I have to wait 8-10 weeks to get a provider directory but they say I will have my card in 7-10 days, who knows why.

Yesterday was my first doctor's appointment and I chose what hospital I will deliver in. I chose The Somerset Medical Center in Somerville, NJ. I was going to choose Morristown Memorial, where I was born but I decided against them b/c Somerville was able to schedule me first. simple as that. I answered a shitload of questions, set up my billing information, and had the scary bloodwork done. It's scary b/c it's the AFP testing. For those of you won don't know what that is: The baby's spinal cord "leaks" a protien into my bloodstream until it's the spine is closed up for good, and in the 20th week is when the spine is closing so they took blood yesterday that will tell if there are any problems. I'm terrified.  I mean, it's not like I could ever terminate at this point, I just couldn't. They also changed my due date from the 29th of May to the 21st, which would make the baby a Taurus, not a Gemini (Mel - I'm so bummed it's not your birthday anymore). Also - this means I am 21 weeks not 20. And, it changes the conception date. Which I will write about later. Long story, sigh.

Anyway, I'm glad to have a doctor now and I am scheduled for January 17th for my first doctor visit (yesterday was just a nurse) and I find out the gender on February 2nd!!!! I'm so excited.

I just watched the sunrise, it was b-e-a-utiful as Jim Carrey would say. I love getting up this early lately, while I used to hate it. I love being up when the sun is first up, watching the early morning news, and starting my day while the parking lot is still full of people that have not left for work yet. It gives me this kick in the ass that I need.

It's thundering. I love thunder.

I love how every time you see Snoop on t.v. or in a picture, but especially on film - he's always like one shotgun away from passing out and hitting the floor.

wow, we still have such a great time together. yay. that's all I'm going to say on that one. Oh, and friends only from now on, just beacause. Just because I'm a grown up now. and I wear big kid clothes. so, if you're here and reading, add me and i'll add you back. fuckin a. aight.

most tv already sucked, but Miss USA Fear Factor is where it ended. tv has ended.

If you just got here after reading my entry at emollient, HELLO and welcome to my other journal. this is where i've been keeping all the pregnancy secrets. I feel so good that I finally told you about it though. Oh, and you're probably wondering how far and all tha jazz. So - I'm a week shy of 4 months. I'm due in may (the 28th to be exact) and I feel great. Now, you all probably remember my post from August when I miscarried, and I want to tell you that this time I am healthy, and everything is going well, a textbook pregnancy. I'm on thyroid medication this time, and eating right, and doing everything I can to make this baby healthy.


Today is Sunday December 5th 2004.

You conceived on Saturday September 4th 2004
and your due date is Saturday May 28th 2005.

92 days have passed since the conception,
and you are 174 days before your due date.

You are 15 weeks into your pregnancy,
and you have 25 weeks to go.

You are in the 2nd trimester.


35% of your pregnancy has passed, there is 65% left to go.

HEY YOU! [Nov. 30th, 2004|07:02 am]

Hey. Hey...You're not busy right now, right? SO, admire my newly remodeled user info page. I added some lyrics that are special to me. And, my comments are lonely, I'm wondering who reads this thing? To those of you who read this and my other journal, thanks for understanding that I'm not ready to tell EVERYONE yet about the pregnancy. I have chosen December 15th for that, and some other things I've been putting off (some of you know what I am talking about). so, anyway - thanks for understanding why i have two journals. I like having two. And I love that my baby is due on terrible's birthday, that makes it more special to me.

ch-ch-ch-changes... [Nov. 24th, 2004|01:00 am]

so far, the biggest difference from the first trimester to the second is HORRIBLE back pain, and I'm peeing more. Does that sound about right to those of you who have been there/here? Also - I'm so glad the morning sickness is going away! At first, I was worried that meant something was wrong, but I think it's just like the books say.." some women will have this go away, some won't.." I'm hoping that's the case. also, i'm getting random depression swings. not so much with the random happiness though. does that seem normal?
