Well, this week has been very very eventful! To start, we're at 10 weeks! :)
So, off we went 45 minutes later to the hospital. The ER took FOREVER to get me in a room and get me any sort of pain relief. I was in such pain, and was ready for it to be OVER! I finally received morphine, and then they were able to do an ultrasound to see what was going on. Turns out my gall bladder is full of stones, and one made it's way out into a bile duct. That stone was blocking bile from getting where it needed to be. So, we were admitted. They decided to take that stone out, and put in a stent to help the other stones not get stuck. The gall bladder will need to come out sooner than later, but this will buy us some time. I was in the hospital through Friday evening, and was very excited to come home. The only good thing about being in the hospital is that we got to see our baby over and over and over! Here is the latest photo:
Baby was measuring 11 weeks 2 days, so that was nice.
Symptoms: gall bladder pain, bloated

April 19 - April 25
I had my doctor appointment on the 18th. Since the doctor said he probably could not locate the heartbeat with his doppler, he sent me over for another ultrasound! Seriously loving this doctor and how nice he is! ;)
The ultrasound girl found baby right away, and we were able to see it moving around! It's little head was moving back and forth, and the arms and legs were jerking around too! So amazing!
Baby's heartbeat measured at 168 bpm, so we've got a healthy little baby on our hands!
Also at my appt, they weighed me....ugh. I have gained about 8 lbs so far, and it's not making me very happy! When I get hungry, I have to eat RIGHT AWAY or else my tummy hurts. So, this has caused some weight gain that I'm not too pleased with. Hoping that most of it is water weight! ha!
Symptoms: "off", headaches, some acne (yuck), weight gain, bloating, chesty

I got a stomach "bug" on March 7th. It was some kind of awful! I had awful back pain, a huge bloated tummy that was sore to the touch, and then the throwing up. I took a test during one of my toilet times, and after a couple minutes threw it in the trash because it was negative. I went back in later in the day, and for some reason, grabbed the test out of the trash. When I saw the extremely faint line, I could barely believe it.
The sickness went away the next day. I showed Daddy the test, and said that it "could be" the culprit. I decided to go in and have a blood test to see if I was pregnant. Much to my surprise, the blood test was negative. I was baffled, because the urine tests were showing positive. I then realized that I must be sooooo early that the blood test didn't show up yet. Anyhow, around 2:30 the stomach pain came back again with a vengeance. I went through 4 hours of the horrible stomach pain again, and I was searching for some pain relief. Nothing worked, and it was just no fun at all...
During these days, I continued to test...just to see if the line was getting darker, and sure enough, it was...
Turns out the culprit was a UTI. I should have known, as that is what I had when I found out I was expecting Avery, and had them with Olivia, too. I never have them when I'm NOT pregnant. So I put 2 and 2 together, and went in on Saturday the 9th and got some antibiotics. I talked to the doctor about the negative blood test, and positive pregnancy tests, and actually brought in all of the tests to show him. He told me that I was pregnant....wow...
So, that's how we found out we were expecting......again. Shocked, excited, surprised, scared, worried.....that's how we felt, and are still feeling!
March 8 - 14 / March 15 - 21
During these weeks, we kept the pregnancy a secret. I believe we told a couple of family and friends.
Symptoms: sore chest, cramping, forgetfulness
March 21 - 28
This week I had my first doctor appointment on March 21st. They sent me to ultrasound to see how far along I was. At that time, they saw the gestational sac, with a small yolk sack growing. She roughly estimated that I was 5 wks 2 days.
Symptoms: bloated, sore chest
March 29 - April 4
This week the girls and I met up with Nana Dianne for our fun Girls weekend. I had another ultrasound scheduled for March 29th. At this appointment, she was able to see the flutter of the heart, and said the heartbeat was around 175 bpm! She measured again, and put me at 6 weeks exactly, putting our due date November 22, 2013.
Symptoms: tired, bloated, sore chest, hungry, gaining weight :(
We told the girls in their Easter Baskets that they were both going to be big sisters. I put an ultrasound photo along with shirts I made for them in their baskets. We have lots of photos and video of their reactions! So fun!
April 5 - 11
This week we announced that we were expecting. Olivia was not able to keep a secret very well, and I was getting texts and questions about it. Also, we found out that my brother and sister in law were also pregnant, so we announced at the SAME time on Facebook, which was fun.
Symptoms: so hungry, bloated, sore chest
