Pregnancy Dreams

When I was pregnant with Sean, I had the most outrageous, funny and entertaining dreams. They were often pretty bizarre and very amusing. This time around, I’ve started having nightmares. Nothing baby related, thankfully, but nightmares, nonetheless. In one dream, we were planning to go camping, but that morning I had a few contractions. We started timing the contractions and they seemed to have gone away. So we went ahead and went camping. Nathan was fishing in a stream near the campsite and Sean was playing with the rocks and sticks in the grass nearby when he started screaming about a big black spider. I ran over to Sean and saw a huge black widow spider. I tried to stomp on it and it jumped out of the way, and suddenly it turned into 2 spiders. I tried to step on them again and then there were 3… you get the picture. And just so you know, I don’t like spiders much.

Another dream involved lots of snakes and one that bit my kitty cat. Another dream involved a mass murdering samurai dude who I was hiding from and trying to escape from. Everywhere I hid, I found another one of his victims. Last night Nathan and I seemed to be stuck in a Jurassic Park type dream where we couldn’t get away from the T-rex. I was so scared, but Nathan kept telling me not to move so the T-rex wouldn’t see me. I was shivering in fear so bad, I was sure I was going to be seen and get eaten. The T-rex finally went away and we were running to a safe area and all these little dinosaurs were following us and nipping at our heels. I was beating them with my purse. Then I woke up.

I don’t so much like these dreams. I want my funny dreams back.


Fish Pedicure???

I love a pedicure as much as the next person… the lotioning, soaking, and massaging… ahhh! But I read this article on about fish pedicures. Yes, you read that right… fish pedicures. That’s just plain weird to me.


12 weeks pregnant

I had another prenatal appointment today. My doc couldn’t hear the heartbeat with the doppler machine at the clinic, so I had to go to OB triage at the hospital to have an ultrasound. Neither I nor my doc were worried that anything was wrong. We figured it was just a little too early or the baby could have been hiding behind the placenta. Anyways, I got to see the little munchkin again and saw the heart valves fluttering away. The baby was also pretty wiggly, so that was cool to see. I can’t wait to feel the baby moving in there! So things are going well. The only complication so far is glucose intolerance, so I have to watch my diet and get some exercise. Other than that, I’m feeling good. My next appointment is in a month.

Ultrasound pics

Had an ultrasound the other day to confirm how far along I am in the pregnancy. I’m am confirmed to be about 9 and a half weeks along. Here’s the pics from the ultrasound. The baby is the white blob in the black area. The head lies to the right and the rump is to the left with what appears to be the legs pointing upwards. I got to see the heart fluttering on ultrasound and hear it beating via doppler as well. I LOVE THAT! It just confirms that there’s this little person growing inside. Still no morning sickness or nausea. I get indigestion every once in a while, but never real bad. I have very few negative symptoms of pregnancy, so I’m very blessed. Next appointment will be July 21st, and I will be 12 weeks along by then (heading into 2nd trimester!)
