Chiropractor update

Well, Chiropractor is a bust.  He was going to need to see me 3 times a week for about a month, then about twice a week until the baby is born... It's going to cost us about a third of what we'd be able to put into savings... I can't do that.... So I'm just trying to deal with the pain for now.  Some days it's really bad, like Sunday night, I was in tears.  I couldn't even get myself up off the couch because it hurt so bad.  The worst part is, it's not just painful when I put weight on it, it's any movement of my leg.  So even just trying to stand without putting weight on it, can be incredibly painful.  After doing some research, I think I have a pregnancy related symptom called SPD.  It causes pain like this... usually only in rare cases.  So lucky me. 

Other than that, I'm feeling pretty good.  I get to see my little man again on Friday for my anatomy scan.  I get to see the little boy parts for myself and get a little confirmation. LOL!  I've been skeptical because last time I didn't get to see it for myself.  It should be a good day, Hubby and I both have off work, I'm hoping to get him to go to lunch with me downtown before my appt.  I don't think he'll put up too much of a fight. :) 

Ha! I just felt my little man kick I think... it was like a sharp little poke from the inside.  LOL! So cool!  I've felt like popcorn before, but that's the first solid kick I think!  Don't know if I could have felt it from the outside, but I felt it inside!  LOL!  On that note, I'll end this post and get back to work. :)

Another Appt this Afternoon

So this afternoon I'm going to the chiropractor. I'm not exactly excited about it. I'm actually kinda scared... don't know if I like the idea of someone popping my bones, especially my spine. LOL. But with the amount of pain I'm in from my fall a few weeks ago, I'm going to do what I have to. I cannot believe how bad my hip is hurting almost constantly now. And it doesn't help that our little boy likes to sit right on that side of my uterus against my pelvic bone. So at 3:45 this afternoon, I go to see if they can do anything about it. I'm actually pretty worried that I really injured my hip. Not like broke it, but maybe fractured it near the joint. That's where all the pain is, right where the femur head sits in the socket (maybe I'm wrong with the names of bones or whatever, but you get what I mean). I'm just really hoping they can do something for me.

This next week is exciting for me. I get to have lunch with some friends on Sunday then Friday (25th) I get to see my little boy again on ultrasound. Hopefully this time see with my own eyes what we're having! LOL. I saved the receipts for all those clothes I bought so far, just in case. LOL!

Well, since I'm working, I guess I should stop blogging and get back to work. I'll probably post an update when I get back from my appt to share if I had any relief or not... We'll see. :)

I went shopping this weekend!

So I have been on a mission to find a little jacket/bundle thing for this baby.  Up until this weekend, I was looking for a gender neutral one, and was only finding ones in either pink or blue.  It's a good thing I didn't go with my intuition, or else my little boy would be wearing a pink jacket.... Well, this Sunday, I went to Marshall's, TJ Maxx, Target and Babies R Us looking for a jacket thing.  Wasn't really looking for anything else, but figured if I saw something on clearance I'd go ahead and get it, but nothing that was full price.  So I spent $28 and I'm so proud of myself for everything I got!!! 

I found a jacket thing on the clearance rack at BRU.  It's a blue fleece zip up that has a teddy bear embroidered on the left side, then the hood has teddy bear ears.  They were having a deal for buy one, get one for $2 on clearance clothing.  So I got a little pair of gray sweatpants thing too.  I was supposed to pay $14 for the jacket, then $2 for the pants... The cashier who rang me up was having issues getting stuff to come up at the right price, so he had to manually ring my order, like type in the prices... He gave me the pants for $10 and the jacket for $2!  HA!  A $28 jacket for $2!  So excited!  Believe it or not, Babies R Us was the last place I went too! 

Marshall's didn't really have anything, a lot of cute stuff, but nothing I really wanted to spend money on yet, nothing that really stood out. 

Went to TJ Maxx first, found a 5 pack of onesies.  They are sports related, one says Mommy's allstar, another says Daddy's #1 Draft pick, then another says Future Quarterback.  LOL.  So stinking cute. 

Then I went to Target, they didn't have any jackets either.  But looking on their clearance rack, I found a really cute little christmas jacket thing.  It's a brown fleece jacket that says "Santa's favorite" on the left side with a little reindeer embroidered.  Then the hood has reindeer antlers and ears on the top! 

After that, I ended up with 5 onesies, 2 jacket things, and a pair of pants for $28.  Adding everything up with regular prices, it would have been close to $85!  So awesome!  Hubby wasn't even mad at me, which was a huge bonus! I figured he wouldn't be happy with me buying baby clothes already (because we know our families are going to go crazy with that stuff). 

I had a doctors appointment today, just a regular appointment.  Everything is going good so far!  Little bean kept running from heartbeat monitor too.  We got him on the monitor for about 20 seconds, then he'd move, from then on out, we could only get a beat or two before he was moving again!  He was not having it today! LOL.  Cannot wait until the 25th when I have my anatomy scan, hopefully my little man is moving around a little more.

And we are having a......

Before I spill that... I had some drama the other day.  Basically I fell on some ice outside my house last weekend.  I didn't have any spotting or cramping, so I didn't think anything of it.  Turns out 5 days later I started spotting and light bleeding.  I went to the midwife's office and she said everything looked ok as far as she could tell.  She wanted me to have an ultrasound just to make sure.  So yesterday I went for the ultrasound over at the hospital.  They did the ultrasound, everything was fine.  They couldn't see any reason why I'd be spotting. 

Then the tech asked me if I wanted to know what we were having.  I said yes, but because Hubby wasn't with me, I couldn't find out without him.  She said if I wanted, she would write it down and seal it in an envelope, so we could look at it together.  Looks like we are welcoming a little boy in July!  I have to admit, I was really set that it was a girl... I just felt it was a girl for some reason.  I was definitely wrong! LOL.  We're still not going to tell family until the end of the month after our anatomy scan, just so we can make sure.  15w 5d is early to find gender still, so I just want to see with my own eyes before we go spreading the word.  When she was checking gender, she told me to turn my head so I couldn't see it. LOL.  I'm really excited now!  Went out today just browsing the boy clothes, seeing if anything was on clearance (to be honest, I was looking for a winter coat thing that I can leave on the kid when buckling him into a carseat, cuz they'd be on clearance now).  I didn't find a darn thing.  But I did only go to Burlington Coat Factory.  I think I'm going to try Marshall's.  That's where my one friend found one for super cheap.  I'm also going to look at Babies R Us maybe tomorrow morning.  I don't feel like running out again today.

And now I get to make dinner so Hubby can eat before work!  So excited and it's awesome to know this is just between Hubby and I right now.  It's kinda nice to have a little secret.  :)
