ITS A GIRL Feburary 2015

At our first appointment on Thursday January 29th after my OB told us we were 9 weeks and 4 days along and due August 30th with a scheduled c section sometime that week he said would you guys like to know the gender early? We were like how early?

He said 10week's we were like what? He them explained there is this new thing they're doing to find out the gender early called a Panarmoc ultrasound and genetic blood testing. I had to be 10 weeks or more so we did it at 10weeks and 1 day. They took 7 vials of blood ekkkkk I wanted to die. John did a cheeck swab. They told us we would have the results 2 weeks later.

Valley OB called me Thursday February the 12th and I called them back and they didn't answer so the next day Friday the 13th I called again and they called me back and asked if I wanted to know the gender I asked if we could get it in a envelope they said sure and that all the other tests came back negative and baby was normal and perfect.

That night we decided to go to Cheesecake Factory because that's where we celebrated after we found out that Dax was a Boy. Unfortunately it was a 100 minute wait so we decided to go to CPK. We ordered our food and our server asked if we were celebrating Valentine's we said not really we went on a cruise last week. We're celebrating something much better finding out what baby #2 will be. We already have a BOY. We said youll be the first to know. A few minutes later he came back with our drinks and saw us kissing and said well what are you having?

It's a GIRL! We were so happy and surprised. I saw the results right away in the middle of the paper. We both looked at each other and started crying. We said we're having our McKenzie I could see tears rolling down johns face and I lost it I started crying and saying I finally get the mother daughter relationship I've wanted I've always wanted a little girl to be her mommy. A month before we even got pregnant John had a dream he was holding a baby girl in the hospital so it's so surreal that it's happening.

Everyone at CPK was so nice they congratulated us and the manager came over and personally congratulated us and gave me 2 chocolate covered strawberries and a raspberry cupcakes from him and free Red velvet dessert as well.

We called our parent's and siblings they were so excited! We told Dax and he was happy and said Siser Siser and kissed my belly saying baby Kenz it's Soooo cute!!!! We took the announcement photo the next day at Hobble creek with Pink balloons on VALENTINE'S day it was perfect

Baby #2 First Appointment January 2015

Our first appointment was Thursday January 29th at 3pm we were so excited. We ran errands before and grabbed some Del before. We got there filled out paperwork and waited. They checked me in,checking my urine and my heartrate. My OB was excited to see us we waited in his office for a little while. He congratulated us on getting pregnant and asked some questions like do you want to have a C Section again or try a V Back again? I looked at him and he saw how un easy I felt about a C SECTION just because with Daxton it was a crazy experience. He assured me that having a C section would be fine and I wouldn't be pushing and laboring for hours like I did with Dax and having a C Section puts getting infections way down. So we agreed C Section. John definitely wants me to have a C Section. We talked about how crazy it was what I went through this time leading up to getting pregnant. We got in the Ultrasound room and I put a gown on. Low and behold Baby was right there and it was surreal hearing the Heartbeat again. I was like okay this is real and I am really pregnant! I was 9 weeks and 4 days at that appointment. He told me my due date was August 30TH I'm like WOW the very end of summer lucky me. I thought for sure it would be a September baby. I will have a C Section sometime that week. We loved getting the Ultrasound photos. They gave me a bag full of Mommy and baby Magazines and coupons. After we celebrated and went to USwirl for frozen yogurt it was yummy. Such a happy day


BABY #2 Finding out and ALL that Other STUFF December 2014

What a SURPRISE this was. Before I tell the GOOD NEWS I want to back track and tell what I went through from starting to try to then finally getting Pregnant...We actually started trying in May After Mother's Day. Although not really I got Super sick with a Cold and I lost my voice for over a week it was miserable. But nonetheless I was OFF birth control so we had the Green light. I was Anxious and Nervous. I had Got my IUD out February 2014 and John was ready to start trying then, me not so much. Dax had just started walking 2 months prior and I had started working full time again. So we waited and went back on Birth Control from March to May. Well Dax took 5weeks to get pregnant so we definitely thought we would be Pregnant sooner than later.....NOT!!!!!

 June and July Nothing. July I started not feeling well I was having all of the symptoms of being pregnant but I wasn't I had a CYST. My intuition was right. We had an appointment with my OB the day we we're leaving for our Vacation. We sat down and talked with DR Ollerton and he said well let's go look. So he did a Ultrasound and he couldn't tell for sure what it was so he sent me over to Timp Hospital so off we went. I was right it was  4cm by 5cm Cyst that's a pretty big size not huge but not small. My DR wasn't concerned so off to Carlsbad we went. The day that we we're leaving to come home my Period came so I thought okay this isn't going to be as easy as I thought. A few weeks later I had another Ultrasound done at Timp to make sure the Cyst was gone. It WAS!!! but sadly 2 more had appeared. I was DEVASTED. I was hurting and bloated all the time. So I met with my OB again in August and he said maybe it wasn't the Cyst that was making me hurt and bloated maybe it was something called INTERSITIAL CYSISTS. A chronic Bladder Infection. So I got off of everything Acidic and followed a strict diet. They prescribed me some meds that made me SICK like throwing up wanting to die. Fast forward to September I went to the ER and the DR said I had another Cyst a UTI and a Bladder Infection. I got on different Meds and felt somewhat better.

So I met with my OB again in September and he tells me that he wants me to go back on Birth Control for 3 months to make my cysts go away. Of course I was devasted because that meant that we would no longer be trying for Baby #2. My OB reassured me that everything will be okay. So I start to be okay with everything and then my Stomach pains worsen in October and my stomach bloats up again so I take him up on his referral for a GI DR. I had an endoscopy done in November and it had shown H Pylori Bacteria. I was on Meds to make it go away they were making me sick so I stopped. After Thanksgiving I was officially done with my Birth Control that was a long 3 months. But glad the cysts were gone and I had a gamelan in place.

I really thought it would take another 2 to 4 Months to get Pregnant considering everything my body went through. So on December 28th I took a Pregnancy Test and about DIED when I saw 2 Lines. I took 3 EPT tests and 1 Clear Blue Digital Test that said I was 3 or more weeks along. I thought this was to good to be true!

 I never thought this was how it would happen with all of those obstancles but I am grateful I am healthy and overcome all of that before having another baby. You never know what is in store. Here's to Baby #2 and having a healthier ME this year and being Happy.
