I wish we were going to get a gender scan sooner than our U/S but it would be out of pocket. DH and I talked about it and decided we would rather put the money towards baby stuff but it still stinks haha. I can't wait until The end of October! We get to find out gender, I will almost be done with this semester, and we will be that much closer to baby! I love Halloween btw so that will probably be the day we share the gender with family I have found a ton of cute things to do.
I just realized the other day I am going to have to get a winter coat this winter ... Was going to buy a new one anyway but I don't really want to spend a ton of money on a maternity coat. Last winter was pretty mild here, so maybe I will get lucky and can make it through with a fleece or something We will see!
I am still so stinking tired and getting MORE nauseous instead of less now Where is my honeymoon trimester ?!
How is everyone doing?
It's so exciting that a lot of us are finding out the gender soon. I can't believe I'm almost half way done with this pregnancy! Every single day I'm just awed and thankful that I've been able to make it this far. Hubby got kicked HARD by baby boy the other night. I think he was putting too much pressure on my uterus and baby boy decided to kick him really really hard. LOL Hubby's eyes lit up and he was like WTH was that?! It was awesome. As a FTM to be, and especially as a person who's had recurrent miscarriages, it's such an amazing feeling to feel baby boy moving around. I feel him every day and it makes me smile ear to ear.
My anatomy scan went well and my next appointment is in 4 weeks. We're going to schedule a 4d u/s for 28ish weeks at my next appointment. I really like that my doctor's office offers elective scans.
I hope you are all having a great Tuesday!
Jina, you DH must have been so excited to feel baby boy!!! I can't wait until DH gets a chance to feel that! I think we have a few weeks to go before he can feel it....I'm feeling lots on the inside, but I'm not able to feel any kicks or anything on the outside yet.
Anyone get up to anything exciting over the weekend?
I bet it's really exciting to feel baby boy move so much!!
I am still having nausea and tired all the time. Everyone, especially mothers, are telling me "Oh it will get better, just wait. You will start to get your energy back soon." It takes everything I have to smile and nod. I feel like crap people ! I don't think it's getting any better and with work, school, packing and trying to find an apartment, and being a wife and mom I don't think the exhaustion is going anywhere. Please don't tell me what my body is going to do ! I have had a baby before, and I have been around enough pregnant women to know that no pregnancy is the same.
I had a dream last night that DH got to feel baby kick for the 1st time !!! I hope it comes true soon He loved to feel DD moving around.
This week is crawling by now because I scheduled a gender scan for Thursday. Its just a brief ultrasound with a couple pictures. If we like them we will go back and get a 3D/4D ultrasound done later in pg. They make heartbeat bears after 20 weeks. I think this would be so cool for DD to have !
Also, I work at a Daycare and had a mom be so rude this yesterday. She just had a baby two weeks ago and she came in to drop her older daughter off and while there she said, "I see you've been posting on Facebook.(She meant about being pregnant/the baby. I've been putting up my belly picture every two weeks and vaguely talking about being pregnant in my status occasionally.) I wouldn't do that. I DIDN't do that."
I had no idea what to say, so I just kind of smiled at her and sort of nodded.
Then she said, "I didn't want everyone in my busy. So be careful what you put up there."
What in the heck am I supposed to say to that??? I'm sorry you are friends with people on FB that you don't want to know your pregnant?? Why does it affect you if people know that I'm pregnant on FB? We are past the miscarriage risk, have lots 2 babies and are really happy/excited about this baby, and we wouldn't abort for any reason so why wouldn't we want to share this happy news with our friends and family who we don't get to see because they don't live by us??
UGH ! I just want to tell everyone to leave the heck alone for the next 5 1/2 months.
Jo, I'm sorry you're still feeling nauseous. That really sucks! I really hope you start to feel better soon. Yes, Hubby was extremely happy to be able to feel baby boy. He keeps putting his hand on my tummy instead of my butt now.
Danielle, ow! That must have hurt! He must have kicked HARD if he woke up your DH from his sleep! LOL
Megan, congrats on your little boy!! I bet your DH is over the moon!
WTH is wrong with your co-worker?! She sounds like a real peach. I swear...I have no idea why people think it's okay to say rude things to women...especially pregnant women.
AFM, not much going on here. I've just been exhausted. I don't have energy to anything and it sucks!
