Talking Dr Appt.. New Kitten.. Family baby News... All in one post..

http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/gabby.gif First I will start with my Dr Appt yesterday.. I heard the heartbeat.. I am 11wks 6days.. My little one had a fast little heartbeat.. It was so nice to hear.. Funny thing my doc said.. but a bit shocking at the same time.. See my food has been digesting REALLY slow and get stuck in my throat.. I asked him about it and said "it doesn't feel like it is going down" He said to me.. "Well if it isn't how did you gain 7lbs" My jaw dropped.. I thought good point and kinda laughed it off.. it is funny though.. Gotta love my dr.. My next appt is on Oct 3rd my B-Day and the dr said I might get to find out boy or girl.. what a bday present that would be..

http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/confused.gifAlso I had a question.. I love cats.. and my friend just gave me a 7 wk old kitten.. is that dangerous.. I already have a 7 yr old cat.. who by the way is not happy about the little kitty.. but the disease you can get from cats how common is it... would I get it or am I immune since I already have a cat?

This is the sad part of the post.. On Aug 18th my cousin gave birth to a PERFECT little boy.. I mean he looked like an angel from birth.. Now he is an Angel.. since my cousin was about 17wks she knew about his condition.. The valve that goes from the heart to the lungs didn't form..She went to 37wks and they did a C-Section and took him.. then 1wk after they did the surgery.. and the valve never really worked and another one was to small.. for 15 days he lived Dominic Ozie Pool!! Yesterday they had his funeral.. graveside.. and it was beautiful.. my cousin is the strongest person I know... Everyone agrees that his heart was just too big to live.. My friend Shannon who is 12wks m/c, friend Stacy went into labor.. and all this happened yesterday.. this baby stuff is really getting me.. I thank God everyday for blessing me.. especially after being told 6yrs ago I couldn't concieve.. Everyone bless what is given or taken from you there is always a deeper meaning to what life brings you.. if you understand it.. GREAT.. if not.. one day you will!!

Good Luck and blessing to everyone..

About the cat question.. what you should be concerned about is ONLY if your cats go outside. it doesnt matter if they are a cat or a kitten.. but if they do go outside there is stuff outside that can get in their system and through their poop that is bad for a pregnant woman. so if they go outside, then you should stay away from their kitty litter.. have someone else change it. but if they are totally indoor, there is nothing to worry about.

Even if they are indoor cats I would defenitely recommend someone else cleaning the cat litter box. Just to be safe! That's the only thing I was ever told about having cats while pregnant.

As for all of your news with babies, I defenitely count my blessings every day. My husband and I were told at 20 weeks that our baby had moderate hydrocepholus (too much fluid in the brain). We went through a week of absolute hell wondering and wanting to know WHY us. We went to a specialist about 1200 km's from where we live, and found out that a mistake had been made when the tech was doing our ultrasound. She angled the wand wrong and therefore the left ventricle of the brain looked HUGE. I am now almost 38 weeks pregnant with a very healthy little boy. I believe in miricles, and I honestly believe my little Austin is a miricle baby. He made mommy and daddy love him more than we could love anything in the world!!

As for the comment from your doctor. Guess it makes sense what he said, but I think that would've surprised me. LOL. You don't realize how much it makes sense, but it's like "oh yeah, guess if the food wasn't going down, I wouldn't have gained 7 lbs". That's funny and hope you didn't take it the wrong way!

Anyways, congrats on your pregnancy, hope your little one spreads it's legs to show you what it's coming out as! LOL.

I have two cats and while I was pregnant (even though they were indoor cats) I had someone else clean it out. Just to be safe. Your right we should ALL count our blessings everyday! I sure praise God about my Austin..he amazes me everyday. I sware I knew I would love him but I didn't know it would be this much. Every smile is priceless. They don't stay this little so enjoy every second you can. I know I do! Oh by the way babygrant..I like your choice of a boy's name Good taste..lol! I'm so glad to hear that your son is ok. That had to be horrible waiting but God was looking over him It won't be long now! Good luck

Talking

Thank you all for your responses.. As far as the cats go.. I have to tell the dear father-2-be a million times but eventually he does clean it out.. I just finally end up threatening to do it and he gets up.. "Fine!" It's kinda funny.. I was looking it up yesterday.. and read that if you have had the cat for a while then you most likely build up an immunity to the disease.. but I am being safe and not cleaning out he litter box.. besides it makes me gag right now..

Also babygrant about what the doctor said.. I didn't take any offense.. I laughed about it.. I was shocked for a moment.. but thought it was absolutely funny.. my bf almost peed himself he laughed so hard.. Glad to hear your baby turned out fine.. I also hope that this little one lets me see for my birthday.. I couldn't ask for a better gift than to hear.. "IT'S A ????"

Again I am happy to hear all are blessed.. Good Luck..
