Where the baby is on its way to life!

Saturday, April 30, 2005

Mrs. X23 is now 29 weeks along with our child and she is doing mostly great. I say mostly because she can't find a comfortable position to sleep and she needs special care and feeding right about now. We've seen a few ultrasounds and 4D doppler scans of the baby and, if you haven't seen what technology can do these days in regards to pregancy, you're really missing out. We have an actual picture of our child's face. He (BabyX23 is a boy...he will go by the name of Eliot Louis X23) is healthy and growing and is apparently heading for a career as either a flamenco dancer or an ultimate fighter by the way he pounds on Mrs. X23's belly. The doctor says he should be coming along about the middle of July, right about the time Harry Potter 6 comes out...so I won't be reading that one for awhile. I'll try to scan Eliot's picture in for y'all soon.

So, Mr. X23 has been keeping you sort of up-to-date with the development of Baby X23. I thought you'd like to hear how things are going from the mom. No puking! Although, until yesterday, I was nauseated every moment of the day except when food or water was going down my throat. My back hurts, probably because I've already ballooned almost to an F cup! Jealous? Mr. X23 says he's happy about that. he says that the baby will look up and think he or she is in Heaven. Me? I'm getting a reduction as soon as the second Baby X23 is born!

We bought a device from Babies R Us that allows us to hear the baby's heart beat. We think we're hearing something, but there is so much other noise, like food processing through my intestines, that we're not sure. It also has baby speakers so that we can talk to it and play it music. Mr. X23's idea. I think it's funny but it makes sense, too.

On Thursday, I'm going for my first ultrasound. We're bringing a VHS tape just in case there's something to see. Sorry, no pictures on the net for you. My womb is private.

I should clarify that I'm very excited about this baby. I'd jump up and down but that hurts, even with a bra. I think I'm just very calm about it because there's nothing I can do except take care of myself for the next seven and a half months and watch myself expand. I think that once I see some major changes in my body, I'll feel more like it's really happening. Mr. X23 is terribly excited, though. He's getting weepy and happy and huggy and it's so CUTE! He wants to be a great father and talks about his hopes and fears a lot. I know he's going to be a wonderful dad. I know this because of the amount of love he has for me and for his baby. I don't even know if my own dad was as excited about his kids as Mr.X23 is and he did a pretty awesome job. As for me, I'm just going to love my kids and do the best I can from there.

Okay, so that's it for now. Should I vomit finally, I'll let you know. :-)

Mrs. X23 has been to the doctor and the blood tests have come back positive.

An interesting note...Before we were married a little over two years ago, I told Mrs. X23 that we would wait two years t begin a family. I predicted that we would conceive our first child on our second anniversary. Funny thing is that we are certain that the child was conceived on our anniversary.

Sometimes you do get what you ask for!

Not trusting the three positive tests we had on Sunday and Monday (the little pink line just wasn't conslusive enough...three times), Mrs. X23 used the more expensive brand that has an LCD readout with the word "pregnant" if she's pregnant. It said "Pregnant." We're pretty confident now. She's going to the doctor on Thursday for final confirmation ...but we're sure.

Actually, more than online. It would seem our recent efforts have had positive results.

As of today, Mrs. X23 is carrying BabyX23!

According to the online calculators, the baby is expected on July 14th, 2005.

We will post as things develop :)

Sadly, hopes have been dashed for this conception window. Due to certain constraints, we have decided to next attempt to bring BabyX23 into the world in March. We have that one month window and then we try again next fall as long as it takes to get us a baby. See you in the spring!

As we go to bed we are still very hopeful. The period has not really started so we think we have a shot here. Send your positive happy thoughts our way! We should hopefully have an answer tomorrow!

The wife thinks her period might have started. It could also be spotting. The books and websites all seem to agree that a little bleeding might occur even with a pregnancy, so we're not out of the game yet. We're keeping our fingers crossed...
