Oh Baby!

I think that I'm going to have a girl. I really will be happy either way, but I think it's going to be a girl. About a month ago my husband had a dream that we had a baby girl and we named her Khaliah, he woke up and told me about his dream and asked me what I thought about the name and I told him I liked it. BTW, Khaliah means Eternal in Arabic. Well, at that time we didn't know that we were pregnant, so fast forward to last weekend when we told our parents the good news. My MIL and I were talking and she was asking about names and I told her about Khaliah and she gasped! Why, because she said that's what she was going to name my husband if he was a girl. Now, he had no idea about this, so for him to dream this before we even knew we were having a baby and for it to have been his inteneded girl baby name, I feel like maybe this is God's way of saying it's going to be a girl!

One thing I really am wondering about is who will our baby look like! I've been looking at my baby pictures and my husband's baby pictures trying to imagine what our baby will look like. He thinks that the girl will look like him and the boy will look like me because that's the way it is in his family. And my sister and I look more like my father than my mother. I don't know I'm just so excited to see my baby's face!

I am a nutjob or sentimental, your pick!

And since I am a nutjob I took another pregnancy test this morning because I just can't believe I'm really having a baby! Also, to add to my nutjob-ness, yesterday while I was at home nursing my toothach I was watching all the TLC and Discovery Health Channel baby shows. Then I start singing a song to the baby and started crying happy tears. What's that you say... what are the lyrics to the song?

Mommy loves the baby, daddy loves the baby,
Everyone loves the baby.
We're excited and you're invited,
to meet all of us, your family.
Mommy loves you and daddy loves you.
And we're excited that we're invited,
to meet you!

How I found out and me being overzealous as usual...

I missed my period last mth. and I've been peeing every 5 seconds, so I was like maybeeeee.... so I said well let's get a test on our Anniversary (5/27) because wouldn't that be cool. Well, I was too antsy so I was like how about the day before mother's day because then on Mother's Day I can tell our moms by saying, "Hey, where's my Mother's Day card!"

So we bought a test at Target and we get home and I take it, so before we go to look at the results Sharief says a prayer, "Lord, I am not going to ask you that we be pregnant, but for you to do what you will and if it's the right time to bless us with a child you will, AMEN." So, I just took the test about an hour ago and behold 2 lines and 99.99% accuracy. I will be making an appt. to visit my gyno to do the blood test, but I was so excited I had to blurt it out to everyone.

We told our parents in the same kind of way. It was Mother's Day so first we went to my parents house, we gave my mom her gift and chit-chatted and then as we were in the driveway to go to the restaurant, Sharief says, "Hey, what about Kenesha's Mother's Day present." My mom goes well, then lightbulb recognition, she's like are you? And I shake my head then she says congrats and my dad was like y'all shoulda got a puppy. Then the whole time in the car she kept asking us were we serious.

Later that day we went over his parents house and we did the same thing except this time I said, "Where's my Mother's Day present?" Sharief's mom started jumping up and down and saying, are you, are you? I told her yes and she hugged me then me, Sharief, MIL, and FIL were all group hugging. My FIL was really happy when we told him if we have a son his name will be Hassan because that is his Muslim name.

I have already bought a DHA Pregnancy/Nursing Supplement to go with my vitamins until I see my doctor and I can get the prescription pre-natal with the DHA already in it. It's called Expecta Lipil and it's made by the Enfamil brand co.

I bought myself the Ensure Healthy Moms drinks and snack bars in chocolate of course. At work a lot of times I will eat really late (Fri. I at at 2:30) or miss breakfast, but I cannot be doing that now, so I wanted to have these of course I don't want all my co-workers to see it, so I only put one in the freezer to chill and then I'm going to drink it.

I'm also entering every sweepstakes related to baby stuff and maternity that I can find as well as printing out coupons for everything I can think of, so far I entered the Makeover Your Maternity Contest from WE to win $500 worth of Liz Lange Maternity Wear, the Pampers Year's Supply of diapers contest, and printed off a $300 coupon for the Ensure Healthy Mom stuff.

Oh yeah, I am peeing like there is no tomorrow.

The Baby Head Diaries Begin

First, I'm sure you're wondering why this is called The Babyhead Diaries. Well #1 I'm silly; I've always thought the word Babyhead was funny and my husband and I call each other babyhead because of this. I've also always said I was going to name my dog Babyhead Jones, alas I do not have a dog, but I did just find out I was pregnant and no, I am not naming my child Babyhead and no my last name isn't Jones.

Yeah, it's hard to understand if you don't know me. Just know this:

1. This is the start of the Baby Head Diaries.

2. I will recount my pregnancy experience, birth, and subsequently the life of my baby.

3. This should be fun!
