A Mothers Meme part 2

A while ago I did A mothers meme. which was all about my 1st pregnancy At the end of that I said one day I would have to do this for my other children also. Well today since Mr Man's birthday is in 2 days I thought now would be a good time to do this for him.

1. WAS YOUR PREGNANCY PLANNED? Yes.. We were trying to get PG for 2 years and I was taking clomid for a year of that. The doctor the month before I got PG told me the Clomid wasn't working and he was going to have to send me to a different doctor because there was nothing more he could do.. I begged him to let me give it one more try, he tried to talk me out of it but in the end agreed and that month I got PG with Mr Man.

2. WERE YOU MARRIED AT THE TIME? Yes for almost 5 years.

3. WHAT WERE YOUR REACTIONS?
very very VERY excited

4. WAS ABORTION AN OPTION FOR YOU? NO NO NO NO NO NEVER!!!!!!!!!

5. HOW OLD WERE YOU? 26 when I found out I was PG, 27 and 6 days old when I had him

6. HOW DID YOU FIND OUT YOU WERE PREGNANT? being on the colmid I was having blood work done around the time I should have ovulated. the 1st 11 months each month I was getting the call that NO they were sorry I did not ovulate. The last month I got the call saying why yes you did ovulate a little.. So I knew the date that it happened and 2 or 3 weeks later I took a home PG test. After 2 years of month after month after month of seeing the negative test result, then spending days crying my eyes out.. and knowing that this was our last shot at it(DH and I had made up our minds that if this last round of colmid didn't do the trick we were done we weren't going to try anymore) My heart just couldn't stand another negative test.. So I took the test and left the bathroom and DH was the one to read the test when it was time. He came out of the restroom with his eyes all shining so I just knew before he even told me that it was positive.

7. WHO DID YOU TELL FIRST?
My parents, It was a Sunday morning and we waited for them to come into the church and we told them.. then everyone at church.. everyone knew the trouble I was having and was keeping us in there prayer so everyone was so excited. After church we went and told my in laws and then called my grandparents.


8. DID YOU WANT TO FIND OUT THE SEX?
YES YES and YES.. I couldn't wait to find out.


.9. DUE DATE?
November 30, 1999


.10. DID YOU HAVE MORNING SICKNESS?
OH heavens YES.. had it with all 5 of my pregnancies.. it started about 7 weeks along and lasted all day every day for 9 months. I lost 25 pounds with him before I started to gain it back.


11. WHAT DID YOU CRAVE?
grapes and apples they were about the only thing that tasted good to me and didn't taste to awful on there way back up.
.

12. WHO IRRITATED YOU THE MOST?
No one I was too sick to worry about other people.. I was so darn sick I feel like I missed 9 months of Princess life and my mom, DH and my Grandma had to care for her during my PG.


13. WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST CHILD'S SEX?
A Boy


14. DID YOU WISH YOU HAD THE OPPOSITE SEX OF WHAT YOU WERE GETTING?
Not really. well maybe a little because I always wanted two girls so I could dress them in the cutest matching outfits and then sit back and ooh and awww over just how darn cute they looked LOL.. and since we were 100% sure this was our last child because I was never going to put myself though the fertility treatments again and all the heart break of not getting PG.. when I heard boy I sort of saw my dream of matching girls dresses being laid to rest and I grieved that for little while but was also very excited that I was going to have a nice little family of four with One girl and One boy.. what could be better then that.


15. HOW MANY POUNDS DID YOU GAIN THROUGHOUT THE PREGNANCY?
Like I said above I lost 25 pounds from morning sickness before I started to gain. Then I gained that 25 pounds back but the doctor didn't count that as gain. After I got back to my starting weight I gained 25 pounds.


16. Did YOU HAVE A BABY SHOWER? No..

17. WAS IT A SURPRISE OR DID YOU KNOW? Only had the baby shower for the 1st PG.

18. DID YOU HAVE ANY COMPLICATIONS DURING YOUR PREGNANCY?
Awful Awful morning sickness Then we almost lost Mr Man at birth. His cord was wrapped around his neck twice though out my whole Labor and delivery and with each contraction his heart rate would drop to 50 or lower.


19. WHERE DID YOU GIVE BIRTH?
In the hospital of the town I live


20. HOW MANY HOURS WERE YOU IN LABOR?
He was my shortest and easiest labor. At 3 in the morning I was uncomfy sleeping in my bed because Princess had climbed into the middle of it, So I got up and went and slept in Princess's bed.. I had just closed my eyes when I felt Princess climbing over me to sleep with me in her bed. Just as I wrapped my arm around her I felt the hardest kick ever right into my bladder and cervix and nothing thing you know I was wet the bed was wet everything was wet.. I wasn't sure if My water broke or if I had peed from getting kicked so hard.. went to the restroom and the water wouldn't stop at all.. My water had broke. I got to do the whole tv waking your hubby up in the middle of the night and saying "Honey It's Time" This was all at 3am I was in the hospital by 3:30am and Mr Man was born at 12:10PM So about 9 hours.

21. WHO DROVE YOU TO THE HOSPITAL? DH and Princess.. My parents meet us at the hospital to pick up Princess.

22. WHO WATCHED YOU GIVE BIRTH? DH the nurses and one really ticked off doctor

23. WAS IT NATURAL OR C-SECTION?
natural without a single tear, cut or stitch, The reason the doctor was so ticked off is because while he was at his office not the hospital One of the nurses checked me saw I was at 10cm and told me to push.. I pushed and Mr Man's head started to come out they saw the cord and she took her hand and pushed Mr Man back up inside of me and held him there and started to scream to get the doctor here STAT. and then all heck broke lose and there was doctors and nurses and people running all over my room. the doctor got there the nurse tried to put a gown on him and he tossed it to the ground and said he didn'thave time for that and he delivered Mr Man in a suit and gloves. He was none to happy with the nurses. It only took one more push then his head was out and the doctor unwrapped the cord, then he had me reach down and put my hands under Mr Man's arms and then had me pull him out the rest of the way. Then they rushed my baby off because he was barley breathing.. I didn't see Mr Man again for just over an hour.

24. DID YOU TAKE MEDICINE TO EASE THE PAIN? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?!?! OH YES YES YES,

27. HOW MUCH DID YOUR CHILD WEIGH?? 6 lbs 2 oz and 20 inches long

28. DID YOUR CHILD HAVE ANY COMPLICATIONS? Yes his cord and that he was hardly breathing, after they got him breathing, he had to be on Oxygen for about an hour. But after that he was fine.

The Stevens Family said...

Great meme and he was your last huh? What a blessing you have and happy early birthday Mr. Man!

KC said...

Yeap.. Mr Man was our last LOL.. I was told I would never get PG again with out the fertility pills and I wasn't doing that again.. and I figured since I couldn't get PG anyways there was no point of useing any sort of birth control... 18 months later I found out the doctors were WRONG.. and found myself PG with Sweet Pea.
