Or however you spell it. I felt like that with my last pregnancy on my babyfit message boards. The first trimester is so annoying when it comes to other pregnant women. We are all about 5 to 9 weeks along right now and they are already talking about how they definitely look pregnant. Give me a break... I don't care how many kids you have had, you don't have a baby bump at 6 weeks!

Yes, I feel that my pouch is sore and getting harder, but would I say I have a baby bump? No, I would say that I look like I'm getting fatter even though I've lost 2 pounds so far. So, forgive me if I spell this wrong but I must be the pregnant Scroog or something.

In other news, I was told that my lab work came back great but that I have a bladder infection. The bladder infection wasn't surprising.. and I believe I've had it for a few months now. So, I'm on antibiotics and I can definitely feel a difference after 4 days of medicine. I wish that they would have elaborated on my lab work a little instead of telling me it all looks fine. I want to know why they took so much blood, what it was for, what it all means. Oh well, I go back to the doctor on Friday, and I'm looking forward to it. I believe I'll be 8 weeks and that should be late enough to hear a heartbeat!

As the previous post has said, I am preggo with #2! We are very excited. Actually, I was going to wait to tell people, but Aaron sent out a mass text message within the first hour after telling him. So, there is no point in hiding it now.

I've already had someone ask me if this baby was planned. Honestly, it wasn't. We had been trying for a couple of months and then felt that it wasn't the right time with the money problems, house problems, and other problems going on. But in the family fashion this baby didn't want to be planned, but instead waited until we were sure that it would be better to wait instead. So, I can tell we'll have another hard headed stubborn baby :-). Not that that is necessarily a bad thing.

How far a long am I? Well, when scheduling my doctor's appointment they said 6 weeks, but I'm leaning toward 4 maybe 5. My cycles are longer than the average, and doctor's don't take that into consideration up front. The same thing happened when I was pregnant with AJ. I knew I was 4 weeks and they said I was 6 and then had the ultrasound and it turned out that I was exactly right. The only difference is that now, I don't know the exacts of my cycle since it was still all over the place, so I can't pin point a due date like I did with AJ. I'm thinking it will be around June 11, 2010.

Something else that we're thinking about doing is not finding out the sex of the baby. While I would love to know if it is a little girl later on, I think it would be a lot of fun and very exciting to wait until that day. Honestly, I want it to be a girl, but of course if it's a boy there are positives to that too. Like, I already have a ton of boy stuff lol.

So, that's the scoop so far. I have my first appointment at the end of this month, and I'll definitely give an update about this then!
