21 Week Pregnancy Update and Bump Picture

So, I didn't get this update in time. I am currently 22w2d's along in my pregnancy but I am going to be doing this update for 21 weeks. I'll post 22 week update later this week.

Date: September 29, 2014

Due Date: January 31, 2015

How Far Along: 22w2d

Bump Pic: Here is a picture of me at 21 weeks.

What I miss: Still missing good sleep.

Baby’s Size: Large Banana

Symptoms: Nausea hasn't been that bad. I have had shortness of breath.

Weight Gain: I weighed 221 at my OBGYN appointment.

Maternity Clothes: Right now, I am still in regular clothes. But they are getting tight.

Cravings: Just so you know I did get my Quaker Steak and Lube wings! I don't really have any cravings now. Even the dark chocolate craving has died off and I could careless about Mexican foods. Although I still don't mind having them.

Food Aversions: I can eat anything right now.

Gender: BOY

Medical Happenings: I had an OBGYN Appt on the 24th. My doctor told me that my placenta is in the front and that is why I am not feeling him kick as much. She also informed me that I would probably be getting induced at 39 weeks. So that means baby boy will be here sooner than I thought. The doctor couldn't find the heart beat when doing the doppler and said she didn't like messing with it. She didn't even try for 5 minutes and was like let's do a quick ultrasound. Here is a picture. You can see his ribcage, head and arm. You can also see my placenta at the top.

Baby P's heartbeat was 150.
I called Nancy (Perinatal Center) about my sugars. My insulin doses were changed because they were a little elevated. 
Oct 6st I see my Perinatologist again. I also get another ultrasound to check baby's growth. 

Emotional Stuff: I still get emotional over silly things. Example is hubby telling me I am beautiful. lol I just started crying. He is too sweet.

Belly Button – In or Out?: In! 

Movement: Yes, here and there but not constant or that strong.

Sleep: Tossing and turning. Can't get comfortable. 

What I am looking forward to: Feeling the baby move more. Sharing the baby's name next post!

Baby Buy: Here are a few baby items that I bought.




Have a happy day,

Week 19 Pregnancy Update

I am 20 weeks today but I will be updating today for the 19th week. 20 week update will come later this week.

Date: September 13, 2014


Due Date: January 31, 2015

How Far Along: 20w

Bump Pic: Once I start showing, I'll include this.

What I miss: Good sleep. lol

Baby’s Size: Mango.

Symptoms: Nausea, shortness of breath and headaches.

Weight Gain: I weighed 217 at my Perinatal appointment.

Maternity Clothes: Right now, I am still in regular clothes.

Cravings: Sweets. I wanted everything pumpkin last night. But I didn't give in. 

Food Aversions: I can eat anything right now.

Gender: Still a BOY! lol Ultrasound pic to prove that this time.

Medical Happenings: I had my Level 2 Anatomy Scan appt on Sept 9th. Little boy is measuring good. He is a little big in the tummy. The Perinatologist I saw said it was because I am too sweet for my own good. (Meaning my diabetes.) He weighs 12 oz right now. I go back for another ultrasound the beginning of October to check on growth again. Pictures posted below from the scan :) 

Emotional Stuff: I really have some emotional meltdowns. I had one a day or so before the anatomy scan.

Belly Button – In or Out?: In still! 

Movement: I think I might have felt him move but it wasn't anything major. I thought I wrote the date down but apparently I can't find it on this desk of mine. 

Sleep: I have been having some crazy dreams. One dream I had my alarm clock was in the dream and I kept snoozing it in real life. I ended up sleeping until after 11AM and wasn't too thrilled about that. I think instead of buying a pregnancy pillow I might buy a body pillow first and see if that helps. They are a lot cheaper. 

What I am looking forward to: Feeling the baby move and not guessing it.  And coming up with a middle name. I think we have the first name set in stone. :) 

Here are pictures of Baby P at 19w3d. 









Have a happy day!

17 & 18 Week Pregnancy Update

Sorry I didn't update for week 17! This is for both 17 and 18.

Date: September 2, 2014

Due Date: January 31, 2015

How Far Along: 18w3d

Bump Pic: Once I start showing, I'll include this.

What I miss: I still miss not having medical bills. Definitely going to have to set up payment plan. 

Baby’s Size: Mango by the end of the week.

Symptoms: Nausea and exhaustion.

Weight Gain: I was back up to 216 at my OB appt.

Food Aversions: I can eat anything right now.

Gender: Ain't no guessing anymore. Baby P is a boy!! :) 

Medical Happenings: I had my OB appt on Aug. 27th. It took the OB a bit to find the heartbeat but she found it. Baby P seems low. I made my Level 2 Anatomy Scan appt for Sept 9th. Hubby will be able to come. It isn't with my Perinatologist but the time was what we needed since mine couldn't see me later in the day.

Emotional Stuff: Emotions come and go. 

Belly Button – In or Out?: In still! 

Movement: Nothing yet. I am sure I will know when I feel something.

Sleep: I really need to buy me a Snoogle or whatever they are called. lol 

What I am looking forward to: Feeling the baby move.  And seeing that the baby is healthy from the Anatomy Scan. 

Baby Buys: Last week I was looking forward to buying the baby something. I got a couple of things. 

We bought him a bow tie from The Children's Place. It is for 6 to 18 months. I'll have plenty of time to put an outfit together. 

We went to Target on Sunday after church and got this outfit for him. It is size Newborn so I am really hoping that he isn't big and can fit it. I am gonna get a cardigan to put over it. I think this might be one of the outfits for either coming home or taking hospital picture in. 

My friend Tiffhanie bought Baby P this little blankie. I think it is adorable. I sorta picked it when we were strolling through Babies R Us.  She grabbed it and bought it for him and gave it to me once we got to her car.

Well, let me know if you have any questions! 

Have a happy day,
