From Carebear’s blog, I”ll just be doing it for Katie. For now.

1- Where were you when you first found out you were pregnant? Home, In our Condo, back in the day.

2- Who was with you? No one, I tested alone Cause I”m a bit of a POAS whore. I love taking pregnancy tests. I have a problem
3- How did you find out that you were pregnant?  well, the weird thing is the line was faint, and so I didn’t really believe it was a “REAL” line,  So I guess I really believed I was pregnant when I saw Katie on her ultrasound at 12 weeks

4- What was your first reaction to finding out you were pregnant? nervous. I had a miscarriage before, so Scott and I were just nervous. It was hard to be excited.

5- Your Husbands reaction? Also nervous.

6- Who was the first person you told? I think technically (sorry mom) Lashes might have known first, I brought my pee tests to her house to look at. I was very nervous.

7. Did you plan to get pregnant? Yes. Katie was expected and anticipated.

8-Was everybody happy for you? I can’t remember, if they weren’t I’ve forgotten.
9- Did you go out and celebrate? No. See nervous-ness. We wanted to make sure there was going to be a whole pregnancy before celebrating.

10- Did you want to find out the sex? Yes

11- What was the sex? Girl

12-Did anyone throw you a baby shower? Yes, two.

13- If yes, who? Carebear, and then Sukie and my Mom 🙂

14- Did you get any outfits at the baby shower that you just knew you weren’t going to put on your baby?  If there was, it wasn’t because of the “cuteness” of it, it was more the time of year aspect, but one of them that I thought for sure she wouldn’t fit into, she did for winter! I was shocked! (though it was the winter the year after! LOL)

15- How much weight did you gain? 35 LBS 🙁

16- Did you loose all of the weight that you gained?  Yes, and then No. Though it dropped off very quickly I’m starting to gain it back. At least I’m pregnant again.

17- Did you get a lot of stretch marks? Yesssssssssssss.

18- What did you crave the most? Mayo and lettuce (together and warm) and Marinara sauce on ANYTHING. (Potatoes and noodles mostly :D)

19- Did you crave anything crazy? Ice. I craved ice like crazy. I know now it’s because of PICA and the fact I was low on Iron.

20- Who or what got on your nerves the most?  I would say being HUGE. I like being pampered and saying “Oh I can’t do that.” Because I’m pretty lazy.

21- Were you married at the time? Yes

22- Did you have any complications during your pregnancy? Breech Baby! That’s about it.

23- Where were you when you went into labor? Labor!? What’s that!

24- Did your water break? NOPE

25- Who drove you to the hospital? Scott, at Five flippin’ AM! Sheesh!

26- Did you go early or late? 5 days early.

27- Who was in the room with you when you gave birth? Scott, two doctors, like five nurses and an anesthesiologist

28- Was it video taped? No Scott hesitated to do too many pictures too, he didn’t want to see me sewn up.

29- Did you have any drugs for the pain?  Kind a had to. I had a spinal block on my spine, Which was a tiny bit painful (just a bit) and some sweet sweet morphine after the surgery was OVER.

30-Did you go Natural or have a c-section? C-section, wouldn’t it make sense to ask this BEFORE all those other questions? Like up at 23? Whatever.

31- What was your first reaction after giving birth?  I was HUNGRY. Mostly because I hadn’t eaten in hours and hours, I also wanted to hold her, try nursing etc. But I was scared to hold her because i felt VERY noodly all over.

32- How big was the baby(s)? 8 lbs 3 oz, 19 1/2 inches

33- Did your Husband cry? I was pretty out of it, but I would say not at that moment. He’s cried plenty since. Mostly when he thinks about how much he wishes his dad could be there. PS, Scott did an excellent job of taking care of Katie for me, as I couldn’t get out of bed, KUDOS to Scott!

34- What did you name the baby(s)? Katherine Rei. which means Pure (for katherine) and Rei means Lovely. 🙂

35- Did the baby(s) have any complications? They had to keep a monitor on her foot for a while, to be honest I can’t remember what for, because I was kinda hopped up on drugs.

36- How old is your baby today? 18 months 🙂 She’ll be 19 months tomorrow though 😀

37- When is the next one(s) coming? >.< July 8, 2009 apparently.

38-If you could, would you do it all over again? Yes. Katie is a bright spot in our life. Sure some days life would be easier without her, to go and do things QUICK and fast– but I would miss her hugs and kisses, and even her stubborn, NO NO NO! [[Confidentially, she kissed my tummy this morning and it was adorable, I asked her if she was kissing the baby, and she got this indignant look on her face.]]

I feel ….

Like I”m getting myself worked up again, over nothing as usual. Which is ok. Please be advised though, that I forsee tantrums on the horizon.
I will work hard to get a picture of Katie in her Cutie costume. Also, if you want to help with Mandarin’s Present, please let me know.

I’m going to go sulk so I can get it out of my system. I’m feeling vicious.
