Intentional Pregnancy

Took a pregnancy April 21st, 2005 :) It came up pretty quickly... about 30 secs... 2 lines appeared :) woohoo :D

This time, we actually intended on getting pregnant... unlike my other pregnancies. Ursula was almost planned... but, I conceived her earlier, a few months, earlier than I had intended.

I'm really excited :D

According to the Chinese Conception Chart, I should be having a boy :D YAY! That would be so awesome if that's true! Naturally, I'll love my baby no matter what sex it is... but, it would be cool to have a boy... esp. since Jeremy is saying this is our last one.

I'm feeling fine so far... I mean, geez... I'm only 2 weeks along :D hehehe According to the conception date anyways. I am taking some prenatals along with folic acid, Omega-3, and some green veggie herbs... just in case I'm not eating enough of those.

I have plans to go to the WIC office and verify my pregnancy and get on Medicaid once again next week.

I'm also starting out weighing a little more than I'd like to with this pregnancy :( It does seem that right before I get pregnant, I put on a few pounds... well, this time I'm like 145lbs :(( That's 5 lbs heavier than I was for Calista... and I surely don't want to get up to 190lbs! So, I'm going to really try to not gain so much weight. Esp. when I look at pictures of myself for Calista... gosh, my face was fat and ugly! Don't want to repeat that!

*Not counting the time I believe I miscarried, the day before Thanksgiving 2003
