The Sweetest Words

Last night when Miguel and I were putting Colin to bed, I said "I love you, Colin", just like I do every night. Last night Colin said it back for the first time.

Hearing your child tell you that they love you are the sweetest words I've ever heard. I left his room and cried. My baby told me that he loves me.

I definitely look forward to more of it!

OB Appointment

I had my OB appointment yesterday. Things are looking good for the baby. He had a great heartbeat, and was moving all over the place. Colin got to hear the heartbeat and was mesmerized by it. He kept pointing to my belly and saying "baby, baby." It was adorable!

My morning sickness is still pretty bad. I'm taking different medicines multiple times a day, with minimal relief. My OB said that if it doesn't get better in a few weeks, she wants to hospitalize me for a couple of days and have a Zofran Pump inserted into my leg. Though that will probably give me relief, I really really don't want to have to go into the hospital. I'm asking for everyone's prayers! I'm officially in my 2nd trimester now, so the nausea should go away soon (it lasted 14 weeks with Colin), but please pray that I start feeling better soon. My OB wants to see me every 2 weeks until things get better.

The blood results for the First Trimester Screen (the test that I had done last week) came back, and everything looks great. All 3 trisomy's were ruled out (the best that they can be with the test). Praise God!

Pictures & More

I finally uploaded a few 12 weeks pregnancy photos, though I haven't scanned in the sono pics yet...sorry. Follow my smugmug link (to the right) to see them.

I've had been thinking that I was feeling the baby move last week. I started feeling flutters, and then I would feel sick...which is what I remember from last time, then yesterday I know that I felt him moving. I was sitting down at work, and all of a sudden, he just started moving all over the place. I did feel sick after :(.

It's definitely sinking in that Colin is going to have a baby brother, and though I was disappointed, I am very happy now. I know the boys will love growing up together!

Baby BOY Pacheco

Today I had my sono done, and the doctor is guessing that it is a boy. Miguel and I are very excited to have a 2nd boy in the house...whew am I going to be outnumbered...we even have a boy dog!

Thank you Bianca and Valerie (and baby Christian) for coming to the appointment with me. It meant a lot that you guys were there.

Thank you Casey for watching Colin during the appointment and for helping me keep my surprise! I'm glad that you were one of the first people to know!

I'll get my sono pics up soon...I promise! I know I've been saying that since I was 7 weeks pregnant, but I really do mean it!

We got a DVD of the sono, so as soon as I can figure out how to upload it, I will add it!

OB Appointment

I had my monthly OB appointment today, and everything is going well so far! I got to hear the baby's heartbeat...167.

On another note, they have changed the way that they test for certain abnormalities. It used to be the quad test in the 2nd trimester, but now they test between 11-14 weeks. I am currently 11 weeks, so I'll be having the test done at a high risk OB on Monday (I'll be 12 weeks then), and if the baby cooperates, we'll get a 95% accuracy to the baby's sex.

I'm so excited that we may find out whether we are having a boy or a girl so soon! I'm feeling that it's a girl this time.

If you haven't had the time to take a guess please do so before Monday!

They Are Here...

Courtney, Richie & Rachael arrived safely last night at midnight. I got to spend the day with them, and have dinner with them. We had a great time. Colin and Rachael had a blast playing together. Rachael is so small next to Colin, it's just so cute!

On Their Way...

Courtney, Richie, & Rachael packed up their bags today, loaded the moving truck and said goodbye to NY. They are headed here to TX and should be arriving sometime tomorrow evening. Last time I talked to Court, they were in Penn. I can't wait to see them!

Thanks to Casey for the new look of my blog! I just love the colors! Thanks Casey!
