This is such a bad pic. Since I don't have a camera anymore (it was stolen) I had to use my cell phone to take this picture. This was taken last night at 16w2d.
Over the weekend I also went out and bought a couple of maternity outfits. This is one of them, just the top though. Wearing the top yesterday made me really feel pregnant. A lot of my co-workers kept looking at me. Not everyone knows I'm pregnant. It was kind of funny to just see them looking down at my belly every so often when we're talking. I think I'm going to let them just wonder. It's funny!
In other news, I also started to feel the baby. At 15w2d I felt with my hand a very lite tap. Since then I'm feeling a lot more tap through out the day. Hubby can't wait until he can feel his baby's movements.

Today I had an appt and to my surprise I got another u/s. This time we got to see the baby move around like crazy. We still haven't heard the heartbeat, but I'll take an u/s over a doppler anyday.
The baby has grown so much within the last two weeks. The baby is measuring on time and my 1st tri screening all came out good. Next month I'm going to have the big u/s done on me. This one will be a more detailed u/s. If we want we can find out the gender of the baby that day. Hubby really wants to find out, but I don't. I want to be surprised just like I was with my other two. I hope he can wait because if he finds out he will NOT be able to keep it a secret, at least from me he won't.
Doesn't the baby look like he/she is ready to give you a big hug?

Well when I got the house I walked into a room full of strangers. My sisters needed an excuse to have a party at their home with their friends so they used me and my dad fell for it. I was so mad I decided to get drunk and caused a commotion.

This was taken today at my appt. We thought we were going to hear the heartbeat, but instead we got to see our peanut again. Look at how much the baby has grown in 4 wks. Hubby was so amazed at how much his bambino or bambina has grown. He was ohhhing and ahhhing the whole time.

Next week we get to hear the heartbeat for the first time, I can't wait!!

According to my u/s and LMP the baby measured yesterday at 8w5d. This is not definite, but for now I'm a week ahead.
Other news, I was told that my 3 hour glucose tolerance test came up normal, NORMAL...wtf!?!?! I was so upset to find out that I went through torture for nothing. She told me to stop poking myself. My sugar levels are where they're suppose to be. What a relief. Because of this diet I was on I was feeling so hungry and nauseous. I just couldn't stand the feeling I was going through. I haven't gained any weight because of this. Now, although I still need to be careful, I could eat a well balanced meal without too much restriction.

Oh well I hope I feel better tomorrow.

Today is my son's 15th birthday. We woke him up by saying happy birthday and that made his morning. I can't believe how fast he has grown. For his celebration we are doing him a paintball party this Sat. We have a big group playing so it should be fun for him. I'll be in the sideline cheering him on.

Well here it is, my new toy for the next serveral months. I attended my nutrition class yesterday and I really thought is was going to be boring. I was wrong. This class was very informative and I really loved it. By the time the class was done I couldn't believe that 2 hours had already pasted. They taught us how to read nut. labels and what to look for. Since this has never been an issue for me I never bothered to flip the box over.
I made my own meal plan and I'm really happy how I planned my serverings and food groups. I have to eat every 2 hours and lots of water. The one sacrifice I have to make during this pregnancy is no fruit juices. I'm not a big junkie drinker, but I love my V8 Splash and Ocean Spray drinks. So for the mean while no fruit drinks. One other thing that's a big no no is pastries. OMG, hubby is Italian and when we have family gatherings they always have different kinds of yummy pastries to go along with your espresso. Oh the sadness, but it's all for a good cause, our baby's health.
Oh well as hungry as I am already I'm confident that I will adjust very well.

As for pregnancy symptom I've been having heartburn, gagging, sore nipples & mild cramping. One other thing I'm going through is diarrhea. I know TMI, but I had this all last weekend and now it's starting up again today. I was told this is common.
This morning I woke up at 4:30 and had the most awful heartburn. I've been having heartburn for some time now, but I just thought it was my acid reflux acting up again. I took some tums and it gave me nausea. By the time I had to get up and get ready I wasn't feel too good. Yesterday I gagged so bad when I was brushing my teeth that I almost had to throw up. I held it and stood in front of the fan to calm me down a bit. It happened again this morning.
I have to say even though I have 2 children both pregnancies were completely different. I feel that this one is going to be very different.
Since I will be 4 weeks tomorrow this is what our bambino is going through now.
Week 4: The embryonic period begins
The fourth week marks the beginning of the embryonic period, when the baby's brain, spinal cord, heart and other organs begin to form. Your baby is now 1/25 of an inch long.
The embryo is now made of three layers. The top layer — the ectoderm — will give rise to a groove along the midline of your baby's body. This will become the neural tube, where your baby's brain, spinal cord, spinal nerves and backbone will develop.
Your baby's heart and a primitive circulatory system will form in the middle layer of cells — the mesoderm. This layer of cells will also serve as the foundation for your baby's bones, muscles, kidneys and much of the reproductive system.
The inner layer of cells — the endoderm — will become a simple tube lined with mucous membranes. Your baby's lungs, intestines and bladder will develop here.

Today symptoms are more tenderness on my boobies and my left side nipple was a little tender to the touch. I was in the shower this morning and it kind of hurt when the water was hitting my boob. I was really hungry this morning that I thought I was going to throw up. I don't know what to make of this. I usually eat breakfast at work around 10ish and it was about 7:30 when I was feeling this.
Let see, oh skin break out. I've been searching on the web early pregnancy symptoms to compare and I've been reading a lot about skin break outs. I have noticed that I've been waking up with one or two on my face lately. I don't know if this is a pregnancy sign, but I do know it's an AF one.
One more thing, I'm so sleepy and I want something sweet.
Oh I really hope AF stays away this time.

Today I'm feeling a lot of slight cramping below my belly. Almost like a pulling sensation. Boobies are still a little tender.
It's weird I have 2 children and I can't remember for the life of me my early pregnancy symptoms. I do remember having implantation bleeding for both, severe hunger and extreme boob pains. I'm not experiencing any of the above, but just one. Oh well let's see how this will turn out. I hope it turns out good after my 2 ww is over.
Since it's Friday and I probably won't post an entry until Monday, pray that I have the strength to hold out from POAS.

I have to say that charting has completely taken over my life. I say this because I can not live without my BBT. A few months ago I lost my BBT and I was panicking. I went to CVS and bought another one. Well about a month or so later I found it and I was glad because now I have 2, just in case. The other night I woke to temp and after went to the bathroom. Well within that time I lost my BBT. I couldn't find it and I gave up looking for it. Hubby reminded me that I had an extra one and I was like "YES!" I know I'm a dork, but I can't help it.
Well anyways, I can't start my day without first login into my FF account. I have to add my info of the day and analyze my chart. I spend a good 2 hours doing this. I waste so much time that I get backed up at work. Sick...huh?
As of today I am not experiencing any early pregnancy symptoms, but I try to pay close attention to my body.
For the last few days I've been feeling slight tenderness on my boobies. Not to the touch, but almost sore on the side and top of them. I have been getting slight cramping as if AF was getting ready to show her face. Other than that nothing really definite like nausea.
Lets see what tomorrow brings.

So let me start to introduce myself, My name is Gee (my blog name), I'm in my early 30's & I have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome.
I'm married to a wonderful, kind hearted and the most beautiful man in the world. We've been married for a little over a year now, but we've been together since 2002. I also have 2 children from previous relationship. I have a teenage son who will be turning 15 next month and a daughter who's 7 years old.
My husband and I are in our 9 months of ttc our first bambino together. Late last year I was diagnosed with PCOS and 'til this day we haven't been able to get a BFP. We've been ttc since Jan, actively, but really for over 3 years. Jan. 2005 at 6w I miscarried. We had gone to our first doc appt and had our first u/s, but a week before we went in I started to spot. She did an u/s and she said that I had more blood in my cervix. She was a little concern and did explained to us what might happen within the next few days.
On New Years Day I miscarried. Having a m/c was the most devastating thing we had to go through. We had decided to let nature take it's course and not stress and try again. Well 3 yrs later with nothing I started to wonder why. I saw 3 different drs. My first dr appt she ran test and told me the news. She started me on Provera to induce my cycles. Well after a few rounds my cycles were acting weird and I stopped it. I went back and saw dr # 2 and he recommended me to chart my cycles. Since then I started to chart this Jan. I started charting with fertility friend and 'til this day I've only had 4 cycles. My longest cycle this year lasted 92 days without ovulation. That was hard for me because I just felt so frustrated and wanted to get it over with. But I have to say that every cycle is looking better and some shorter. My current cycle looks like this.
I'm currently 5 DPO and I'm officially in the 2ww. I'm suppose to wait until 09/17 to test, but if my temps stay high and keep getting higher I will test on Sun. I know that's early, but I see a lot of ladies from different chat boards I hang out in who test as early as 9 DPO and get a +.
Well anyways, I hope to keep this blog going.
So I as go through this journey I hope to find readers that will keep coming back. Here's to a new blog and a BFP...hopefully.
