17week OB appt update/plus family update

Hello everyone.. Family and Friends.... I hope that your all doing well.. any ways.. I thought I would do a Family update and tell you all how my pregnancy is going.. any ways.. here we go...

Alyssa... she is now 19mths old.. and doing well.. she is very much in her terrible 2s.. but with help from Ayme... which is the one that opens the doors so she can get into trouble.. so its been fun at times.. but she is doing good.. she is in 18mth clothes.. and she seems she could fit into some 24mths.. kinda crazy to think she was 3wks early and only 5.4lbs and 18inches.. only 19mths ago.. she is just growing way to fast... but i'm happy to see how smart she is and how well she is doing..

Ayme... she is doing well.. she keeps me busy at times.. she just loves the double trouble team she how now with Alyssa.. those 2 are just so close.. they do everything together.. its really cute.. when they arent getting in trouble... but Ayme is doing good.. still cant believe she is 3yrs old.. she is in all 4T clothes now.. and i'm sure she could fit in some 5T its still just crazy.. her and Michelle weigh the same amount to the oz.. 33.4lbs.. but yep.. she is doing great..

Michelle.. she is doing well.. she is getting smarter and smarter every day.. I need to get her to start doing school at least 3days a wk.. to get her ready for school this fall... (which i'm homeschooling) she is finally able to count to 10.. and write the letter A. just the capital A though.. but she is showing more signs on being ready to learn more things... and her emotions are not as bad.. she is getting stronger.. which is good... i'm very proud of her..

Samantha... she is doing well.. she is 1 smart cookie... she is loving her new math book.. which is 1st grade.. she is just in heaven with a little bits of it being harder.. now to just get her to like reading more.. but she is noticing more and more words here and there... I need to see about buying some more books to work on for reading.. and hopefully in time she will be off reading on her own with out any help.. she will be 6yrs old in only 3 wks.. which is so crazy.. and she is is going to be loosing her 1st tooth any day.. I could pull it out if I wanted too.. but i'm just letting it be.. but she is all excited about her big girl teeth coming in... but she is doing awesome time in school.. and doing very well.. and can be a bigger helper for us when she is in the right mood

Matthew.. he is doing good.. he just turned 27 on the 10th of January... which it was funny.. since he didnt relize it was his birthday that day.. til I said.. Happy birthday that morning... it was funny.. I told him he is getting old... and he laughed and just said.. yea I know.. I can feel it... but he is doing good... and He has finally been told.. he is off the list for heading to Afgan this May.. which he would of left in March for 2mths then be back for a couple wks then off to there.. but thankfully now.. he will be here.. but when the next tour comes around.. he will HAVE to go.. so we shall see how this all goes

Now to Me.... I'm doing alright... i'm now in my 17th week of pregnancy... and the baby is growing great.. at my 16 week OB appt I found out I have a heart shaped Uterus.. so My uterus is growing differently and I get into pains daily.. its not as often.. but I still get the bad pains.. but basically the doctors told me at yesterdays appt which (1/15/10) that since the baby is still looking good and moving around and not just laying side ways.. and they cant do anything about my pains.. that I dont need to come back for another 4weeks unless something comes up... but we shall see.. hopefully at my next appt i'll be 21wks then.. I can find out what we are having.. since the baby had its legs closed yesterday so we shall see.. I cant wait to find out.. so I can start shopping and tell all my family and friends that what to get stuff to help out... but i'm doing alright.. and now not on full bed rest.. just part.. so still no walking alot and no long distance travel.. but i can do house work again.. just i need to take alot of breaks.. so Lord willing in times things will just get better...

any ways.. thats about it for us here right now... love and miss you all.. and i'll update again in a month after my next appt....

my 16wk ob appt update

Well... my appt was suppose to been at 830am.. but like always the doctors were behind.. so I didnt get in til 1030am.. yep 2 hours behind so insane... any ways.. I get in.. sit down the doctor walks in says "how you doing today ms beckman" and i just go and say.. in a lot of pain.. since I was having those sharp stabbing pains since i've been sitting for for the past 2 1/2 hours.. and normally my feet are up when i'm home.. to try and keep those pains away.. and then he goes. where are they.. so i pointed them out.. I said 2 spots on the top and 2 spots on the bottom of my uterus and then he goes.. ok.. get up on the table lets do an u/s to see whats going on.. so he gets the u/s up and as soon as he finally finds the baby (which the baby is growing great in the 16th wk.. dont know what we are having since didnt look) he goes.. I got bad news for you... but.. your baby is growing the way way.. your baby is growing from side to side.. head on the left and feet to the right. so the baby has been making my uterus growing in the wront way instead of up and down its side to side.. which is cause the really bad pains.. and the baby was laying this wk 2 1/2 wks ago as well.. which also explains why my belly has gotten smaller and i've gotten wider in my belly.. so now I need to be seen every wk... but to double check on the pains to make sure nothing else is going on.. he sent me down stairs to get my gallbladder liver and kindeys checked.. which gallbladder looked great.. kindey looked great. and liver looked good.. but he did tell me i have to go now every yr to get my liver check on. since there is 4 blood masses in there that shouldnt be.. so we have to keep an eye on it.. but he said every year is fine.. unless i get troubles that would go along with that all... but all in all baby is perfect.. right on track.. my weight is up like 2lbs in the past 3wks.. but its ok. and my bp was 110/70 so that was good.. but any ways.. i'm still on bed rest.. but not as strict as b4.. as long as i watch what I am doing.. but if my pains get worse.. they want me back in ASAP to be checked out.. so yea.. with how its going. they keep telling me.. it looks to be a c-section specialy with how the baby is growing.. but hopefully you can have the baby regular.. but really dont be surprised if you cant.. thankfully this really is our last child.. since i can not go through this all again. its not been fun.. and being only in my 16th wk.. i stil have a long ways to go with these pains and stuff going on

Happy New Years update

Hello Family and Friends who read this... its that time again to do updates on everyone and things going on here... things have been pretty crazy lately.. with things that all happen right before Christmas.. 1st... We had the cops show up at our door telling us we have been written up for Child in Dangerment do to someone calling us in.. since they saw Ayme (was 2 at the time) have her window open and sitting in it eating snow (rooms are on 2nd floor) so they called the cops and wrote us in.. instead of telling me that my 2yr old was there.. so now we are still waiting to see what the outcome of that will be.. its just been crazy.. the people here on base.. are horrible.. and we are actually thinking of moving off base maybe.. depending on how things keep on going with things.. any ways... the 2nd thing.. i'll go and throw in my update on me below.. which they both happened on the same day.. any ways.. updates now on everyone

Alyssa: she is doing good.. she has gotten big.. she is now 23lbs.. and in all 18mth clothes.. so she is in the clothes size for her age.. she is a smart little girl.. who loves to get into trouble.. her terrible 2s are shining bright.. she is talking more.. and says funny lines like... "Oh No!" "Oh Wow!" and some other things. its cute...

Ayme: she is doing good.. she my trouble maker.. she just turned 3yrs old on the 29th of Dec.. all she wants is Cars/trucks and other boy like toys.. she is for sure my tomboy.. so its been fun.. Matt has an easy time shopping for her... but she is doing good.. she is getting tall.. she is 33lbs and in size 4T/5T clothes..

Michelle.. she is doing good.. he speech is getting better.. but still alot of work to go.. she is getting big as well.. she is the same weight as Ayme and she is 4yrs old.. she is 33lbs.. but she wears 4/5girls. so Ayme is catching up to her.. but she is doing well.. she can finally count to 10 all on her own.. and she knows her colors... now we are working on the ABCs she has alot of work ahead of her to be ready for Kindergraten come August.. but we are making due.. and with home schooling.. she can take her time in learning this all..

Samantha: she is doing good.. she has gotten so tall.. she is wearing girls 6/7 clothes.. and she is only 5 1/2 yrs old.. she is taller then all the 5yr old girls we have met here so far.. seems like she is taking after me.. since I got tall fast.. but then just stoped growing at the age of 13/14yrs.. so we shall see.. but she is doing well.. she misses school.. since she has been off for 1 1/2 wks now.. she cant wait to start up school again on Monday night.. since we do night school.. so she doesnt have her sisters all running around.. and so she can enjoy going outside if it is a nice day.. so it has been working out well for us...

Matthew... he is doing alright... He has been working 1/2 days for the past 2 wks with the holidays.. so come Monday it is back to normal hours... he is still waiting on finding outif he has gotten out of a TDY that is for in March for 1 1/2 mths... and also waiting to hear on his May TDY so only time will tell on that all..

now to me... well.. i'm in my 15th wk of pregnancy now.. and things havent been going so hot at all with this pregnancy.. I have been put on full bed rest 2wks to having Placenta parveia and also something else is going on.. just not knowing really what it is.. I have been getting really really bad pains in my belly.. and even at times.. I will get Random contractions.. which all that isnt good.. i'm not suppose to be doing anything at all.. but with having 4 kids.. I still have the 2 younger ones.. that need me.. so its been hard.. I still do stuff.. and I have been trying not to over do what i do.. so its not been fun at all.. Lord willing when I see the doctor again on the 8th.. I can get some more answers and maybe some good news.. but only time will tell..... everything is in Gods hands in what all will be happening next in my life here..

any ways.. thats about it right now.. i'll update again on here after my doctors appt on the 8h... take care all and God Bless
