Finally Going To Have A Baby

She is finally going to have a baby and she couldn't be more excited. Meet our next GlaMOMorous Expecting Mother - Kristen.

Tell us a little about your journey towards pregnancy.
My husband and I made the decision in April of 2009 to start trying to have a baby. So I finished my last pack of birth control pills and we were officially on our way towards a baby. Immediately I began having trouble with my cycles and we tried everything the doctor could do without having to go into the office. In October I saw my regular doctor and she did some blood work and determined that my testosterone levels were elevated. She referred me to a reproductive endocrinologist and after more blood work and a couple of ultrasounds it was determined that I have poly cystic ovary syndrome. In January 2010 we started Clomid. Our very first cycle on it was successful for us!!! We did a home pregnancy test on Sunday February 7 before church and it was positive!!!

What is your due date?
October 18, 2010.

Did you have a hunch you were pregnant before you found out?
I had no clue. I had been cramping the few days before I tested and I figured I was getting ready to start my period.

What was your initial reaction to being pregnant?
We were thrilled! After ten months of trying we were finally going to have a baby!

How did you tell your husband/partner?
I just woke him up and told him. Nothing fancy just that we were going to have a baby!!!

Did your husband/partner react in any certain way?
Since he was asleep when I went in there to tell him I don’t think it hit him right away. He was excited after he woke up!

Can you describe the moment you saw your baby for the first time during the ultrasound?
It was AMAZING! I was exactly six weeks so I was really nervous that we wouldn’t be able to see the heartbeat but as soon as we saw the baby we saw the little flicker of the heartbeat! It was so wonderful!

How do you feel about your changing body?
There haven’t been many changes yet but I welcome the changes.

What do you love most about being pregnant?
I love that we have this tiny little baby growing in my belly that is our baby to love and protect and raise!

What do you like least about being pregnant?
So far I love everything. I haven’t had any morning sickness, but that would be my least favorite thing if I did.

If this is NOT your first child, what does your other child/children think about a baby being in Mommy’s tummy?
This is our first child but my niece keeps asking me “Chickie, is your baby here yet?” it is so sweet. She asked me three times yesterday!

Do you know the gender of your baby? If so, have you chosen a name?
We don’t know yet. But we will definitely be finding out.

Have you been buying baby items yet?
My grandmother bought the baby an outfit and a sock monkey but we haven’t bought anything yet.

What are some necessities you would suggest to other pregnant women or women who are trying to get pregnant? Any creative alternatives to maternity clothes?
I have been buying dresses that have an empire waist to accommodate for a growing belly.

Does the thought of labor make you nervous?
Not really.
We wish you the best of luck Kristen! There is nothing in the world like being called "Mommy"!
