19 weeks 4 days....
U/S in 4 hours!!!! Hooray! I am hoping that little peanut keeps it's legs closed so it doesn't show off anything distinguishable to us by accident.
New thoughts on names.... GIRL - Madison (Maddie) Boy - Elliott
Been having some kind of uncomfortable cramping this morn, hope it goes away.
Anyways, I'll update on U/S later!
19 weeks 6 days
Soooo.....Monday we went for my second ultrasound, to say hello to the little peanut inside of me again (and for the last time, no more ultrasounds) It was so great! The technician gave us three pictures to take home, they are posted on the link below, take a peek! I am really thinking it is going to be a boy, just during the ultrasound looking at the screen I kept thinking "yeah, that looks like a boy face" and Chris was thinking the same thing.
Then, we emailed the pics to all our family, and my mom, his mom, his sister, my stepmom and my granny all think it's a boy as well. But unfortunately, we could all be completely wrong, and have a baby girl! So I still have to buy everything in unisex. Lol. But that's what we wanted, to have a surprise.
Now I am just waiting to go to the doctor again next week and hear the heartbeat. I wish I could tell him that I have felt the little one moving around inside, but I really haven't (then again, it was very lazy during the ultrasound, just hanging out in there, wanting to go back to sleep I think!) Oh, well, I've still got 20 more weeks to feel kicking, and I'm sure I'll be sick of it by the end! Anyways, hooray for a healthy little peanut!
21 weeks 5 days
Well, I feel like I haven't written anything here for a long time since everything is going so well....I just don't have anything to report! I saw my Dr. last week, and everything was perfect. He told me he unfortunately doesn't do deliveries anymore, but he is going to refer me to this awesome lady doctor, who he says is very good. He will continue to see me every month, and I will see her once around 30 weeks, and then every week during my last month. When the baby is born she will let him know and we will take the little peanut back to see him and continue on there with him. So that's ok. I go for my blood glucose test in a week or so as well.
But things are going so well, I haven't had any nausea or bleeding, it just seems like I'm getting fatter for no reason! Ok, not true, I have been having some problems with my leg this past week. I have kind of weak hips to start off, and sometimes they get a little out of joint. So one of my hips was causing me some trouble, and now the pain is shooting down my one whole leg.....oh dear, thank you sciatia. My shin is killing me. But it is feeling better today.
OOOH, so I have a new favourite boys name. I am totally sold on Robin. Something like Robin Micah. (Just think how cute it will be, my DH's name is Christopher, and we will have a little baby Robin....lol....Christopher Robin!!! I love it!). Chris says it is not bad....maybe I can convince him. He is still stuck on Carson, which I'm not 100% for. Oh well. Plenty of time left....but actually, it's getting kind of scary with how fast time is going lately....We are halfway through March, and then I have only 3 more months of work, and then it July!!!! Holy smokes. I saw a friend of mine from high school who is living in Calgary and she is due in 6 weeks....she looks so awesome! I hope I look like that at 8 months! She was just her regular skinny minnie, and she had this adorable little basketball on her tummy....it was so cute!
Anyways, things are going really well.....we are starting to think about the renovations we are doing in May, and that is exciting....we will have a baby room instead of an office! I can't wait.
Wow, only 18 more weeks to go! Piece of cake right? I've already done 22.
I forgot to mantion in my last post how ACTIVE this little one is! I was waiting so anxiously for movement and now it's like "STOP IT! I WANT TO SLEEP!" Lol, no but really, the peanut is on the complete opposite schedule than it's mommy.....It starts kicking and squirming just after supper and continues to play at being a champion boxer until just after breakfast....then it leaves me alone all day...lol. You can even feel it from the outside now, which is really neat. Anyways, I found a pic from when I was 16 weeks four days, and holy smokes, compare it to the 20 week 4 days one!
Hooray! Only 17 more days until I have 100 days to go! Time is just flying by....only 17 more weeks! I am loving this belly of mine. I had a customer say to me yesterday "Are you loving your belly? Make sure you rub it lots, cause you will miss it when it's gone...." I was like....."I will?" But then I thought about it....it is pretty fun having this nice round belly to rub....it's a cute little part of me....
I am getting SOOO psyched for the renovations....we have been walking around stores picking out all the things we will need....I have been bringing home paint chips and tacking them on to walls....so fun. I am so excited for this room to be a room for baby!
Anyways, I will take a new belly pic tomorrow when I get dressed (too lazy right now and post it here....I am getting fat....lol...I love it!
Here are my 24 weeks belly pics from a few days ago.
Today is 24 weeks 2 days!
DH is wondering if we can go away for our anniversary this year....I am a little tentative, since that would mean flying at 35 weeks.....which might be a little close for comfort! I guess I will check with my doctor. The airline said they will never prohibit you flying, but if you are past 8 months you need to have a doctors note...we will see. We would be leaving on June 14th, and I am due July 19th.....lol....that's a little scary! Anyways, take a peek at my ever growing belly!
OOOOHHHH, I have been so bad at updating this! Here I am 26 weeks 3 days......
I had a great appointment this past week with my Dr. I passed my glucose tolerance test with flying colours, I am measuring right on size AND.....you will never guess how much weight I have gained!!!!!! Lol, I am not too worried about it because the Dr. didn't say anything about it at all, and I still look very healthy.....but I started out at in between 125 and 130, and I am now 150! For the past two months I have been gaining 7 pounds a month! I have gained almost 25 pounds and I still have 3 months to go!!! I have a feeling I will be quite large....
But I feel good. Other than my ribs and back hurting, and I had a cold for about a week, I am doing really well. Here is a 26 weeks belly pic!
This Thursday marks 3 months exactly until baby is due! Woohoo![/list]
Our plane tickets are booked for our anniversary trip! We are leaving on June 15th, and returning home on the 18th. We are flying to Toronto, staying at the Holiday Inn downtown, going to a Blue Jays game, going to the Hockey Hall of Fame, we will probably rent a car one day and go see Niagara Falls.....it should be fun. A nice little babymoon.
I asked my Dr. about flying at 35 weeks and he says he sees no problems with it, since i have had a perfectly normal pregnancy so far, and no complications. He said just to check with the OB he referred me to and ger her to OK it. I see her on the 3rd of May.
So, I'm kind of excited! I have never been farther East in Canada than Kenora....lol....which is about halfway through the country, so I am excited to go to Toronto.
I had a choir rehearsal last Sunday with a bunch of friends that I haven't seen for months....it was really fun, everybody wanted to rub the belly!
I am so excited for 2 days from now......it will be exactly 3 months until baby is due and I will be exactly 27 weeks....so I have decided that means I will be third trimester! Hooray!
