I know; I remember when you were planning your wedding. Now you get to plan for a baby. This is very exciting news! :)

Will you let us know what names you are thinking of? I am always interested in what people name their kids. It's such a big decision!

We're sticking with some family traditions: If it's a boy, we'll be naming him Ethan Robert.  (The E comes from my husband's grandpa, and Robert is my dad's middle name) If it's a girl...we haven't picked out a first name yet, but her middle name will be Nancy (after my grandma who passed away last year).  We figure, we're not going to go crazy trying to figure out a girl's name until we know for sure that we have to.  9 more weeks until we find out!!!! :nanner:

Title: Re: Big news....
Post by ChickenCookie on Jan 11th, 2008, 11:14am
Ethan Robert is a great name, Mel!  I can't wait to hear what you're having!  :D  I can't believe we have to wait 9 more weeks, lol!  Have you tried the Chinese baby gender predictor thingy that's floating around the internet?  It correctly guessed I was having a girl, though it's a 50/50 chance so I'm not sure if it was luck or accurate prediction.   ;)

Title: Re: Big news....
Post by iris3732 on Jan 11th, 2008, 12:50pm
Ethan Robert. That is a good name :)

Plus the Ethans I know are hot. Look at Ethan Hawke. Plus there is an Ethan in my office who's not too bad looking :)

And if it's a girl, she'll be beautiful of course!

Is that where you stick a needle and string in the eraser of a pencil and hold it over the person's wrist so it swings? My mom's been doing that to my friends and so far it's been right on. According to it, I'll be having 2 girls. We'll see when the time comes :)

Title: Re: Big news....
Post by rzezniksangel on Jan 12th, 2008, 9:28pm
I had never heard of the Chinese gender predictor....so I googled it and filled it in.  According to the site, I'm having a boy.  KEEP YOUR FINGERS CROSSED!!!  (hubby & i really want a boy!)

Just out of curiosity, when do you start showing?

Melissa, I want to see pictures!!

Title: Re: Big news....
Post by rzezniksangel on Jan 20th, 2008, 8:49pm
I can tell in my clothes that I'm growing, but since I was heavy before I got pregnant, it will be another couple of weeks before I start showing.  Once I do, I'll be taking weekly belly pics.

We felt the baby kick for the first time last night...it was the most amazing feeling ever!!!!!

And yes, I know, I need pictures.  I have to take some first, I've just been lazy....

Title: Re: Big news....
Post by Shannon on Feb 24th, 2008, 10:29am
Isn't it cool. It's the one feeling I miss about being pregnant. Just wait until the baby gets bigger and the movements get stronger. At some point you'll actually be able to see a hand or foot move across your belly. It's amazing.

I'm so excited for you!

Title: Re: Big news....
Post by ChickenCookie on Feb 24th, 2008, 1:31pm
LOL, I remember the first time I felt that ... thought it was gas.   :-[  Then I tried to brush it away, like it was a bug crawling on me or something.  Took me a while to figure out what that weird sensation was!   ;D

Title: Re: Big news....
Post by rzezniksangel on Feb 24th, 2008, 7:22pm
It really was strange...I was sitting on the couch and all of a sudden felt this wierd feeling in my abdomen.  I got up, not knowing what it was...but it stopped.  I sat back down, and it started again a few minutes later, then I realized "DUH!", it's the baby!!!  So I made my husband put his hand in the spot where I felt it until it happened again.  It's the coolest feeling in the world!!!

Yes, that's definitely going to be his name.  We're so excited.

I have the ultrasound pics scanned in and posted on my myspace...there's 7 of them, but here's the best/clearest ones:

this one is of his little legs & his boy parts

I know this is about 6 weeks after I took it, but here's the only belly pic I've taken so far.  It was at 16 weeks, and I'm now at the beginning of week 22.  I'm just really bad about taking pictures of myself!  ;D

Almost to week 24...time is flying!!!  My little boy is kicking up a storm...I can't wait until the kicks are strong enough for my husband to get to feel them.  He's a little bummed that he hasn't been able to yet.  It's such an amazing feeling.  

And I feel like I'm getting bigger by the day! LOL.  I really need to take another picture...I swear I'll do it soon.  I look so much bigger than in the one picture I've taken so far!

That must be such an amazing feeling to feel a little guy like that inside of you.

I've had pregnancy on the brain for who knows how long, mind you I'm only 22 and not even involved in a long relationship, so being able to hear about your joy and what you're going through makes me so ecstatic!!!

I'm excited to see more pictures when you post them!!

A little worry yesterday...I was in a car accident.  I'm pretty sure my car is totaled, but I did go straight to the hospital by ambulance and had everything checked out.  They did an ultrasound & said Ethan is okay....they also thought that 28 weeks was my first trimester though, so needless to say I'm going to see my doctor this afternoon to have him check me out.  I'm a little banged up, but no major injuries...thank god!

Title: Re: Big news....
Post by DWG on May 12th, 2008, 12:06pm

I definitely felt better after going to my doctor today.  Ethan is fine...I just have to take it easy until my muscle aches are gone.  I'm a little banged up, but for the most part I'm okay.  My car has been deemed a total loss...so now I have to go through all of the stress of getting that completed and getting the money to put towards a new one.  UGH.  One headache after another.  And back to work tomorrow...

That is so scary Melissa! I'm so sorry that happened to you, and I'm glad you and Ethan are okay.

You're right, I meant it was ironic...:S

I'm fine, shaken up, I rear ended someone. The worst thing is it's my parents car, they're gone on a cruise and are unreachable, so they don't even know yet!

Thanks guys, I'm doing much better. We have another car to drive, but the first time I had to drive by myself I was literally bawling my eyes out. I was petrified of getting in a car again.  But you have to get back onto the horse and ride again!

I hope you're doing alright Melissa and I hope that you're able to get back into the car soon, or already are.

My car is totaled....driving a rental until Tuesday, then my husband has to chauffer me around for a little while until we find something new for me.  I should have my check from the insurance company next week, so I've got some time to take advantage of the pampering :)  

I'm really sore though.  The internal brusing is starting to show...I've got one hell of a black & blue mark across my tummy from the lower part of the seat belt...and my knee is all puffy & black & blue....I'm just in alot of pain...and trying to avoid taking tylenol unless it gets unbearable.  

Lauren, I'm glad you're okay!  I rear ended someone once and it was the worst feeling in the world!  I know what you mean about being scared to drive again...when I got into my rental car on Monday I almost didn't want to turn the key!  I'm just glad you're okay!!!

Had my checkup today.  The doctor is concerned with my blood pressure possibly getting a little on the high side.  So he'll be tracking me for signs of preeclampsia over the next few weeks.  Let's hope this doesn't develop!!!

I'm officially in freak out mode...LOL.  7 more weeks to go, and I have so much to do to prepare!!!

Hubby and I are closing on our condo this week, and we have lots to take care of before we can move in.  I have TWO baby showers over the next two weeks, and I have to pack up the apartment to get everything out of here in time.  

The good news is that my little boy is growing like a weed...and I can no longer see my feet.  He moves around like crazy, and has now figured out how to kick mommy in the ribs!  I'll be taking more pictures this weekend (and hopefully will remember this time)...and will put them up as soon as I can.  

49 days to go!!!

35 weeks down, 5 more to go!  Our little boy has turned aruond and is getting ready to "drop" into the birth canal sometime in the next couple of weeks.  I can't wait until this is over!!!!

I've just got to say that I love the little count down you have in your sig line.  It always mentions the weirdest things about the development of the baby.  "My liver is finishing up"?  Be honest.  Has anyone ever really thought about the baby's liver?  :D

Not much time left!  You must be so excited.  :D

The site I got the ticker from had 2 options, one that just gave the size, and one that gave random facts...I obviously chose the random facts, and have gotten a kick out of it every time it changes.  There was one week where it said something about the fat deposits increasing around his body and his fingernails being formed.

I'm now starting to have complications...doctor is testing me for preeclampsia/toxemia.  I'm really nervous!!  He may have to take me into the hospital to deliver a couple of weeks early....which scares me, because I'm soooo not ready yet!!!  Everyone keep your fingers crossed that my little one can hold out just a few weeks longer!!!

Title: Re: Big news....
Post by Shannon on Jul 5th, 2008, 10:02pm
I will definitely keep my fingers crossed for you Melissa. Are you on bed rest now? I'm assuming they want you to drink lots of fluids too right?

Try to stay focused on the positive and not worry too much.....that's not good either.

Thanks for all the updates. I can't believe he's almost here already. Time flies ...

Title: Re: Big news....
Post by rzezniksangel on Jul 6th, 2008, 1:27pm
I'm on "partial" bedrest.  Meaning I can go to work, and go grocery shopping, but that's about it.  I need to be home with my feet up the rest of the time.  Which really sucks since hubby & I are moving into our condo on Saturday and there's still tons of packing to do!  LOL.  I do have to drink lots of fluids, but I do that anyway, so it's not a big deal.  I'm just anxious to know how my test will come out later this week....I hate waiting!!!

Title: Re: Big news....
Post by nmf016 on Jul 6th, 2008, 1:40pm
I hope everything comes out okay for you.  Make the best of this time and enjoy not having to pack.  :D

Good news....my tests came back normal!!!

More good news...in just 14 short days, I will be going into the hospital to have labor induced & give birth to my little boy!!!  

Only one question...is it the 24th yet?  :nanner:

Title: Re: Big news....
Post by Shannon on Jul 10th, 2008, 5:46pm
That's excellent news Melissa. You must be relieved.

It's hard to believe you only have 14 days left. I know you're ready.

Really? Cuz by the end of both my mom's pregnancies (me and my little brother), she was jumping off porches and eating spicy food, trying to get us out. She wasn't a big pregnancy fan.

I hear that from alot of people...that the last trimester just drags on forever.  But for me, the entire pregnancy has been a blur.  I guess I've just had alot going on in my life that didn't let me focus on how much I'm ready for our little boy to arrive.

We're home!!!!  We actually were released from the hospital last night & Ethan got to sleep in his house!

After my labor failed to start I went in for a c-section at 2:00pm....and my little man was born at 2:19pm.  He weighed 6 lbs 4 oz, and is 18 in long.  He's the most beautiful little boy I've ever seen!!!  I'm working on uploading pictures, so they'll be up in the next day or so.

So how often do you just stare at him? That's all I did with my daughter ... just held her and stared at her. When my son came along I just didn't have time because my daughter was little too. So enjoy the first because you have the time to absorb it all.

He's ADORABLE!!!
I'm gonna be honest -- Babies normally take a few weeks to get to the cute stage. It's the truth. Often, they look like Gollum straight out of the womb.
So...If this is what your baby looks like now.....What is he gonna look like this time next month? You're gonna have to beat the baby girls off with sticks. It's all true!

A co-worker had his first baby a couple months ago and he was bringing in new photos daily and I realized that in this digital age, you could take 300 pictures every day for no cost.  It's so cool that you don't have to limit the pictures you take because film is expensive.  You might need a new hard drive though.  :D

And congrats again.  Ethan is very handsome and has beautiful big eyes.

Post by The Cerulean O on Aug 11th, 2008, 3:50am
Bahhhh, that's what flash drives are for!

Is he focusing already? I could be wrong, but in some of those latest pictures, it looks like his eyes are focusing.

Title: Re: Big news....*updated with new pictures*
Post by rzezniksangel on Aug 11th, 2008, 12:32pm
I need to start printing these pictures out...otherwise it's going to cost me a fortune if I wait much longer! LOL.  I'm planning on getting a couple of flash drives to store all the pictures I have on my computer anyway...I have so many!

And yes, he is very alert.  Follows your voice when you talk to him...looks in your eyes when you hold him.  And he's already trying to push himself up & pick his head up....it's amazing.  My doctor laughed when I told him about it and he takes credit for it saying it's the vitamins he made me take.  :)

LOL!  I knew I was in trouble when I had my ultrasound at 5 months pregnant and we watched him get pissed at the tech for poking at him so much & kick me.   :P

I'm just excited that he's so alert & starting to interact already.  He was giggling & smiling last night when I was drying him off after his bath.  Most babies don't do alot of this until they're at least 2 months old...and he's only 2-1/2 weeks!

You should feed him some ice cream. My mom gave my little brother a lick of ice cream when he was...Uhm....About a month old, I suppose, and you should have seen the face he made. It was great. :D

It was awful!  LOL.  I cried the whole way to work...and now that my hours have changed to 7-4, Ethan and my hubby are both sleeping when I leave the house in the morning, so I didn't even get to kiss him goodbye!  Luckily for us, my mother in law was able to switch to working the night shift so she works from 4-11 and watches Ethan during the day (she and I work for the same company, so she just drives him to the office, I pull the carrier out of her back seat and put him into mine, get in the car and drive home).  Its hard...but I'm sure as I get used to the idea of having to work, it will get a little easier.  

Today, when I called to check on him (and yes, I swear on my own life that I only called once), she put the phone up to his ear, and as I was talking to him she said he stopped sucking on his bottle and started looking around as if he was looking for me.  I of course immediately started crying and everyone in the office thought something was wrong.  I'm such a sap!

I remember how hard it was leaving that first time. What a great mother-in-law you have though to switch her schedule and help you out. It must be a relief to know he's at home with family.

It seems like your time off just flew by. I can't believe you're back to work already. I went back after 3 months and I still felt like I wasn't really ready but at least at 3 months she was mostly sleeping through the night. I can't imagine going to work after getting up a couple times throughout the night. Kudos to you for that one.

I would be in heaven if I could have taken 3 months off!  I had one month of time off saved up at work...paid...thankfully.  Florida is one of the few states that doesn't give short term disability...to anyone.  Thanks alot Aflac!  So I had no choice but to go back this week.  Plus, come to find out the reason they didn't set up for me to work from home is that my boss is too dependent on me.  Apparently, I'm being punished because I'm too good at my job.  UGH!

Where do they give you a year of maternity leave?  I'm so moving there!  LOL.

Yes, I'm already back to work...hating every minute of it.  Nothing changed...the girl who I spent 7 months training to cover my desk quit the first week I was out because she just couldn't do it.  *sigh*  I really need a winning lotto ticket!

You get a year maternity leave here in Canada. I think that's why I was confused why you went back so early.

Aww that sucks that she quit. That means nobody can do as great as a job as you ;) I bet you have Ethan plastered all over your desk area!!

He's actually gotten to where he likes the camera.  He was smiling & making faces for me today...he's getting so big, I can't believe it!

Here's a couple from last week...this week's pictures are still in the camera...

He is just so cute! I want to hold him ... nuzzle him ... smell him. I love baby smell.

Our Burlington Coat Factory sucks...the baby depot is only a couple of aisles.  Babies R Us has become my favorite store....and I spend alot of time in the baby section at Target :)  Not sure if you're going to be formula feeding or not...but if you are, register on Enfamil.com and they'll send you $5 coupons for formula, and we even ended up getting 2 free cans!  Trust me, it's a lifesaver!

i'm gonna try the boobie thing with formula as a back up.  i like the target baby dept too! i still have to go over there to register.  and all of a sudden, my tummy has just popped out. i need to take some pics!

Post by rzezniksangel on Sep 19th, 2008, 5:58pm
i tried nursing...but no luck...my supply never came in...so formula came into play alot sooner than i wanted it to.  i hope it works for you!
