OB visit number 2

On week number 8 we had the opportunity to go to the OB. This was Chris first time and I was very excited for him to meet the doctor and be with me. I could see that he was a little uncomfortable because he had never been before and didn't know what to expect.

On this visit we had another ultrasound to make sure the baby was moving right along and his predictions of how far I was were correct. He said that I was doing good and the baby looked so much bigger compared to that tiny dot at five weeks. I could actually see a little head with a little body. I can tell this baby is going to be so cute already ! Another fun thing we got to do was he showed us the heart beating on the ultrasound and it just filled my heart with so much joy. That's the neatest thing I've seen so far the heart beating on the screen. <3 He gave us ultrasound number two and I have saved in my pregnancy packet they gave me.

I had my blood work done, and I peed in a cup. FUN FUN!!! Our next appointment will be in the middle of October and I can't wait to see how much this baby has grown in five weeks.
we love this baby so much words can't express the excitment running in our minds every day. Love you baby.

week 8 & 9

Not much has changed but maybe my body a little bit. I feel like my stomachs rounding out and I am starting to feel more and more tired. I noticed that no matter how many hours I slept the night before I am in bed by 9 or 10 P.M. That is a huge change for me, because I would always stay up late and do all my things late at night.

I am feeling so lazy and too tired to do anything when I don't absolutely have to do it. I can do a little bit at a time but I get overwhelmed if its many things at once. I have Chris helping me out left and right and he has been absolutely perfect the whole time. I can tell that I've become more and more needy of him but I know he doesn't mind.

I am drinking tons and tons of water and fluids. I have to always carry bottled water or else I'll go buy one. I can feel my throat get all dry if I dont have water all the time.

These weeks were a little harder than normal because I got a little sick. :( I was fighting a little bit of a cold and let me tell you it makes sleeping and doing anything that much harder. The stinky part is you can't take any medications. BOOOO!!
All I could do was fight it out with vitamin C and healthy foods. I had tons and tons of orange juice, oranges, fruits, soup, and all that good stuff. It took me about an entire week to kick it out of my system and I was so happy about that.

Chris keeps being an angel on a day to day basis so much that it makes me fall in love with him more and more just when I thought that wasnt possible. There's no doubt in my mind that we were meant for each other and this is the perfect time for us to have a child. I am so thankful for everything. I try and express all of this every day to Chris because I know it's been a little difficult for us to have "fun" times lately. We havent had a chance to go on a date for about a few weeks because of everything going on, school, work, and our schedules clashing. But I dont care because at the end of the day we always come together and get to see each other. I love going home to my baby every day it's the best feeling in the world.

We are so happy to have a baby on the way and we pray every day for our little BAby baby.

Chris loves to touch my belly and hold me, run his hands to my back to make me feel better and he is so patient and loving with me. I always knew he would be but he has exceed my expectations of what he'd be like. I loveeee this man and I feel overwhelmed with happiness for being so blessed.

Week 7

Im doing much better this week at eating. Im eating so much better and I have more time to make some good snacks and prepare myself somekind of a lunch.
Im taking my prenatals every day. I've probably missed one day since I found out that Im pregnant and I felt bad.

I havent gotten too sick just the nasceous feeling from smells. I consider myself lucky so far because I havent thrown up. I am still very tired and my body is changing slowly but surely.

People ask me if I feel different and honestly I do. Im not used to this feeling at all. It still seems surreal that Im pregnant.

Not to much has been going on other than the baby has been studying, going to class, and workin with me. This baby is keeping me very good company so far.

Im excited to feel my baby in about two months!! HOpefully I dont gain too much weight because I want to stay healthy throughout the pregnancy.

Chris keeps touching my belly and oddly enough he's the only one I dont mind touching me there. I feel weird to everyone that has done it, because IM not far at all. Once I have more of a prego belly Im sure I wont mind as much but for now I just feel sooo CHUBBY! Ha ha but thats okay it'll all be worth it for my little baby baby.

I think this babys parents are crazy

DO you think buying a crib when you're about two months pregnant is too soon. Maybe?

But you'd be impressed with our shopping skills. We weren't planning on doing it so soon but we saw it at Target, we loved it, and got it for a fifth of the price it originally was.
I will post a picture very soon because I am so excited about our sweet deal. Chris had this huge smile on his face and wanted to call both our moms so we did.

I love my husband he's so smart and I know he'll be the worlds best father in the future. Thank you baby for the AWESOME idea although at first I was hesitant because I think it's a little too soon. You know whats best for our family and I appreciate your love.

Its a 4 in 1 crib, dark wood, and a good brand. What else do I want?


OH my GOODNESS!!! I dont know what to do about this current situation. My smell senses are crazy. I know its normal because I've read about it and my friends tat have been pregnant tell me that its the hormones. The only thing I can is just deal with it. Its honestly driving me nuts.

I want to kindly hold a sign that says please please please keep your smelly perfumes to a minimum because I will throw up on your face. That'll be my disclaimer to them. Ha ha . Truth is I havent thrown up yet, however Ive wanted to like almost every day. I dont feel so great sometimes and I dont feel like myself. I am trying very hard to smile and be happy but I didn't think it would be this hard. The fatigue is killing me. I need so much sleep and I need more time in my day to get all my things done. I am praying so hard that everything will work out because I dont want to be stressed or worry all those around me. I am being taken very good care of. Most people that Im close to are being sensative to me and putting up with my moodiness, but its the strangers in the class, store, work, anywhere!!!

Let me give you an example. Tuesdays and Thursdays I have a very interesting class That I take from 7:30 till 9:00, and I sit to this very cute nice girl. I think she's super nice and friendly to me so I get along with her. Well yesterday in the middle of class she whips out her strong peachy flavored lotion and puts it all over her hands. I wish I was brave enough to kindly ask her to please not do that because it makes me want to barf and my senses are very sensative. I dont think I will and I think ill just wait until it happens again and if I feel so bad Ill just have to tell her im prego and so on.

Today - this guy walks in with his CHEAP COLOGNE that hits me in the face as soon as he walks in. Ewwwwww it doesnt even smell good at all.

Hopefully I survve my first trimester without choping someones head off.

I will be patient and smile. I am very thankful for my family, husband, and baby. Right now its just hard to take in being pregnant, working, school, being, sick, and being a descent housewife.

I know i'll get through I just need to get used to this. :P
I need to go to the temple soon. I need a girls night.

Sensative Perla

Right now I am very sensative. I will cry just about every day for no reason. I will catch myself driving home and feeling all kinds of sad because my husband is working. Or because I don't feel so good I start crying a little bit. It kind of makes me laugh because I know it's silly and I can't really help it.

Lately i've been having appetite issues. It's hard for me to find things I actually want to eat. Nothing looks good, I am hungry but it takes me forever to figure out what to eat. I can't believe this is happening to me. I've never been picky in my life until now. Ha ha.. It's okay though today I feel like I'm doing a lot better.

Something driving me nuts recently are .. SMELLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can feel like im going to throw up if I smell something that bothers me. I dont like those strong food smells. Im sure this is weirding Chris out. Sorry babe, I wish I didnt have to be so sensative right now but hopefully I get through the first trimester and it gets better.

Now dont get me wrong I am so happy to be pregnant. It has been the best blessing we've received. I am very grateful and I dont think it could've happened at a better time. I am counting my blessings every day :)

Something to look forward to:
Next next Tuesday we made an appointment and Chris will go with me !!!! Im so excited for him to see an ultrasound for his first time. Its the coolest thing I have seen. Ill post every detail about that appointment.

Love you my Rudd baby <3

Hard work

Making a baby is hard work and whoever told you other wise is lying. My bodys tired and I am so behind on so many things because I've been busy.
Its hard to work work and go to school, then to top it off have so much homework and projects I need to worry about. Lucky for me I like my classes and they are fun to do homework for. I wish I could just be home doing chores and running errands with my man!!! I miss him the most I've been so busy that it's hard for us to actually have some time together. Weekends are our time to catch up and relax. We love having Sundays off.

Everyday this week we've been going to be super early so that my body gets some rest. And when I mean early I mean 8 or 9 pm. Chris loves this SO MUCH! On Monday night he just couldnt believe that we were in bed by 8:30 . Guess we better get as much sleep as we can get. Specially me before I get really uncomfortable and not be able to sleep.

Although I have much to learn and I know this is not going to be easy we are very grateful and pray every night for our baby. We know that this happened at the perfect time for the perfect reason. I testify that the Lord knows whats best for us and we just need to be good and listen to the spirit. I know I will overcome anything if I just turn to Him for help. I feel very loved and I know i can do anything. :)

Week 6 is almost over and on to week 7.

OB visit

Was very scary and nerve racking for me. I had to go all by myself which made me even more nervous. I wanted Chris to be next to me so bad. I didnt know what they were going to do and what I would be finding out. I was so excited all day and I couldn't wait for it to be 2:00 pm. This was my very first visit to the OB and this doctor as well . So it was a day of firsts. I had so many things running through my head and so many questions I wanted to ask him.
My doctors name is Dr. Tutt and his office is right by my house. I will be delivering at the hospital right of the freeway and highley. I am soooooo excited!!! His entire staff were awesome and very welcoming. As soon as I walked in I felt so good about it. I filled out all the paper work and time went by relatively fast. The nurse did the normal things before the doctor comes out and then he asked me some questions. Since im irregular and I wasnt sure at all about how far along I was he used a transvaginal ultrasound and he took a cute little picture of my baby bean. He took pictures of it and gave me one!! And this baby already is gorgeous. Ha ha Just kidding I cant tell yet but Im sure the baby is. Then he told me that I was about 6 weeks along. Honestly, I wish I was further along because I can't wait to meet our baby. Im so excited to be a mom and raise a child that looks like us. Our families are very excited for us to have our first child.
So then I asked him some questions and he explained to me some things that I needed to know and then he did some other things and told me that I would come back in two weeks to hear the heart beat :) I made sure the next time I scheduled it my husband would be able to make it. I will post an update to what we find out then.

I honestly was amazed by how awesome technology is and seeing the baby on the ultrasound. Although I can't see much it was a great feeling to find out Im really pregnant and that so far the babys doing great! I will keep doing what I have to do so that it will all work out.

I will be doing blood tests and doing all the fun pregnant things at the next appointment. YAY!!

I will post the ultrasound once I get a chance to scan it.
