30 weeks pregnant and baby bump picture.

Date: November 29, 2014

Due Date: January 31, 2015

How Far Along: 31 weeks but this update is for 30 weeks :)

Bump Pic: Here is a picture of me at 30w3d pregnant.


What I miss: still miss wearing my smaller clothes.

Baby’s Size: Small Cabbage

Symptoms: Shortness of breath, charlie horse in leg again. Chapped lips still. Swollen feet... not too bad though.

Weight Gain: I didn't have any appointments this week so I am unsure.

Maternity Clothes: I need a few more pieces to add to my wardrobe.

Cravings: None.

Food Aversions: I can eat anything right now.

Gender: BOY

Medical Happenings: I've still been sick this week with sinuses or a cold... Also, Nancy was on vacation this week and had me email my sugars to someone else. That person didn't get back with me. My sugars have been all over the place. I know some of it is because of the food I am eating. But I am trying my best to be good and some of it is not making sense. LOL We will see at my next appointment which is on Monday for the Perinatologist. I'll be getting a growth ultrasound and then also followup on sugars. My next OBGYN appointment is on Dec 3rd (My 35th Birthday.)

Emotional Stuff: Things have been okay this week. Just a little worry that we won't be prepared when Yonatan comes... as in a room set up and have all the things we need. I get so emotional and sometimes it can be the smallest thing to trigger it.

Belly Button – In or Out?: In! But it is looking different.

Movement: I love feeling him move! He is moving around a lot more. He needs to flip!

Sleep: It is getting hard rolling/flipping over. And not the best because I have been sick this week.

What I am looking forward to: We are in the first steps of finding a place. We have to fill out some paper work for the lender and then get in touch with our realtor to look at houses. Hoping to get a house as soon as possible. Also, looking forward to both hubby and I feeling better.

I still have to do some editing and get those baby shower pictures up. I went shopping on Black Friday and got some baby buys. It was right before the store closed. We went to Babies R Us. I used a gift card from the shower and got a diaper bag that was 30% off. We also got a baby monitor that was 50% off. What a deal. Getting everything we need slowly. But I think we will be okay.

Tell someone about my blog, I'd appreciate it. If I haven't covered something that you might have a question to, just ask. Have a happy day!

29 weeks pregnancy update and my baby bump picture.


Date: November 21,  2014

Due Date: January 31, 2015

How Far Along: 29w6d

Bump Pic: Here is a picture of me at 29w pregnant. This picture was taken at our baby shower. Just like the others, it is from my phone so not the best quality. But, I love my scarf that I bought off Ebay. I paired it with a navy skirt, navy cardigan and a red shirt underneath. 


What I miss: wearing my blue jean skirts. lol

Baby’s Size: Butternut Squash

Symptoms: Shortness of breath, charlie horse in leg. Chapped lips. Failed to mention some acne on my back. I am fair skinned and never have an issue so I know this is pregnancy related.

Weight Gain: I weighed 220 at my Perinatologist appointment on Monday and 219 yesterday at my OB appt. 

Maternity Clothes: The outfit for my shower fit perfectly... Loved it. As the weeks go on, the less clothes I have and can wear. I need to get at least one or so more maternity skirts. The blue jean skirts that my friend gave me just do not fit me right. :-(

Cravings: Last week when I was craving comfort food, I ended up getting Mexican food. We went to Abuelo's. It was great. I haven't really had much of craving but still like some Mexican food and chocolate. lol Dark, Milk, it doesn't matter. :)

Food Aversions: I can eat anything right now.

Gender: BOY

Medical Happenings: My Perinatologist Appt: We had a follow-up on the sugars. Nothing was changed. I was told I was doing a good job. Even though I don't feel like it. When I want some ice cream or something sweet, I have it. LOL The food log has been put on hold because I keep forgetting to update it. I need to get on that so I don't forget what I have ate for the day/meal. Heartbeat was 144bpm. My OBGYN Appt: Yesterday I had my appt with the OBGYN. I have been sick the last 3 or so days. My temp was 99.3 yesterday. My blood pressure is still real good. I actually saw Dr. Sanan for the first time. She is the doctor that is listed as my main doctor and she is the one that gets all the ultrasound pictures/test results. I signed papers giving consent to Child Birth, Induction and Caesarean if needed. I know I'll be getting induced at 39 weeks. That is around 9 weeks and 1 day away. Wow! She checked his heartbeat. Told me from where she found it, he still was breech. Little boy better move around soon.. haha We talked about childbirth, natural, operative, induction and caesarean... She told me about scheduling a labor and delivery tour/classes. I need to do that. I'll probably call Monday. She also said that I really don't need a birth plan because that is what the doctor's are there for and they have my main interest in mind. I still think I might have something down on paper. Just because. She recommended people that is going to be around Yonatan to have the shot for Whooping Cough... Since I am allergic and can't get it. She also said something like not having him in Daycare for 3 months... So I am curious if that means church as well? I don't know. But I don't want to put him in any harms way to get sick... We shall see. My next appointments are on Dec 1st for the Perinatologist. I'll be getting a growth ultrasound and then also followup on sugars. My next OBGYN appointment is on Dec 3rd (My 35th Birthday.)

Emotional Stuff: Things have been okay this week. Just a little worry that we won't be prepared when Yonatan comes... as in a room set up and have all the things we need.  

Belly Button – In or Out?: In! 

Movement: I love feeling him move! And I love that his Daddy loves feeling him too. 

Sleep: It is getting hard rolling/flipping over. lol

What I am looking forward to: Finding a place. We are contacting a Realtor first and then will look for an apartment if we can't get a house. I don't care if the house is tiny.. As long as it has everything I need in it. 
Also, looking forward to both of us feeling better. I mentioned that I have been sick but hubby has been sick too. I think he is going to Urgent Care after work today.

Hope you enjoyed the last post of ultrasounds :) I think I am going to try to edit my shower pictures and put them up this weekend or the beginning of next week! It turned out good. We have a few people less than what I thought was coming but that is okay. We had fun and got a lot of items that are a blessing to Yonatan and us. Tell someone about my blog, I'd appreciate it. Have a happy day!

How Far Along: 28w6d

Bump Pic: Here is a picture of me at 28w4d pregnant. 



What I miss: seeing family from WV. My Dad is currently in the hospital about to have a high risk surgery. Praying that this surgery stops the bleeding and that Dad heals quickly.

Baby’s Size: Small Cabbage

Symptoms: Shortness of breath, sciatica flare up near my right hip. Chapped lips. 

Weight Gain: I weighed 221 at my Perinatologist appointment. Haven't weighed myself this week. 

Maternity Clothes: I really hope the outfit I have planned out for my shower tomorrow works. I need to try the skirt on today to make sure it fits and isn't too tight. I am wearing maternity clothes and regular clothes. I really need to get a couple more outfits that are versatile.

Cravings: Really wanting comfort food today. 

Food Aversions: I can eat anything right now.

Gender: BOY

Medical Happenings: I called Nancy this week to discuss my sugars. She added 2 units to my lunch time dose of Novolag. She said that my sugars look good though. I have been keeping a track of my food in a food log to see what triggers the sugars. Nov. 17th I have another followup appointment with the perinatologist. My next OBGYN appt is on November 20th.  

Emotional Stuff: With my Dad being in the hospital, I am pretty much a wreck. 

Belly Button – In or Out?: In! 

Movement: I love feeling him move! 

Sleep: I can sleep just not comfortably! LOL

What I am looking forward to: My shower tomorrow! & finding a bigger place.

I think that is all I wanted to update on other than letting you know that I got the scanner working. The next post will be ultrasound pictures from the last 3 times. Have a happy day!

What I miss: Not having to worry about what food to grab on the go...

Baby’s Size: Head Of Cauliflower

Weight Gain: I weighed 221 at my Perinatologist appointment. 

Maternity Clothes: I have started wearing maternity clothes. Some regular clothes still fit me. I have an idea for what to wear to the shower. I bought a cute scarf off of Ebay. It should be here by Wednesday.

Medical Happenings: I had my Perinatal center appointment on Monday. It was supposed to be with Dr. Evans but I ended up seeing one of his associates again. She decided not to change any of my sugars. I have to call Nancy this coming Monday. And then Nov. 17th I have another followup appointment. While I was at the appointment, I did get my monthly growth ultrasound. Little Yonatan is weighing in the 60th percentile. So not to big! That is good to know. Everything else seemed fine. I got a few ultrasound pictures by my scanner is still down/I can't figure out how to get it to work. My next OBGYN appt is on November 20th.  

Emotional Stuff: Some here and some there.

I think that is all for updating this week. Have a happy day!

26 week pregnancy update and baby bump picture

Date: November 1, 2014

Due Date: January 31, 2015

How Far Along: 27w today but doing this update for 26 weeks :) Was too tired last night to blog... lol

Bump Pic: Here is a picture of me at 26w4d pregnant. 



What I miss: Miss buffets and not having to watch my sugar so closely... Yes, I am a diabetic but sometimes you just want to eat what you want... and a buffet sounds good. lol 

Baby’s Size: Cucumber

Symptoms: Shortness of breath, some lower back pain and sciatica near my right hip still. I don't think I have mentioned it but I have had chapped lips since probably 11 or 12 weeks on. I heard it is common during pregnancy.... I had a charlie horse this week too.

Weight Gain: I weighed 217.4 at my OBGYN! lol  So I was a couple pounds down from the Perinatal center... I am still going by that scale though. So who knows if I lost anything since being weighed at 219.

Maternity Clothes: I have started wearing maternity clothes. Some regular clothes still fit me. I tried the 3 skirts from my friend and I just don't like how they fit me... :( So I think I need to hunt for a couple more skirts. Still haven't found something for the baby shower but I have a general idea of what I am going to wear if I don't find something. 

Cravings: At some point this week, I wanted a Frappuccino so bad that it was 15 minutes before Starbucks closed and hubby went in and got me one... I still like the chocolate and Mexican. 

Food Aversions: I can eat anything right now.

Gender: BOY

Medical Happenings: I had my OBGYN appointment on Friday the 24th. The doctor I saw was really nice (there are 5 of them that I have to meet during the pregnancy.) I actually would prefer her to be the one at delivery. The nurse who took my blood pressure and weight and my OBGYN  convinced me to get a flu shot. So I got that during the visit. 
I asked the doctor about my concern with Yonatan being breech and when I should be worried. She said about 36-37 weeks is when I should worry. He should be head down then. If not then they will discuss somethings with me about helping him. She also said that sometimes the babies will flip day of delivery. That is crazy! She used the doppler to check his heartbeat. She gave up at one point and was going to check on an ultrasound room but they were full. So she came back and tried again and was able to find his heartbeat. She said it sounded good.
I also was sent to the lab to get some blood work done. My blood work showed that my Iron is low. So they put me on an iron pill. 
I called Nancy this past Monday and my NPH insulin was changed to 58 units in the morning. I don't think I have been adding that extra unit since when I took it on Tues.. oops...  
My next appointment is on Nov. 3rd at the Perinatal center. I will have an ultrasound for the growth of Yonatan and also for followup. My next OBGYN appt is on November 20th.  

Emotional Stuff: Oh Yes, emotional this week. I can't remember what started it but I was really emotional and crying. My poor husband... haha 

Belly Button – In or Out?: In! 

Movement: He is still moving so much. Hubby got to feel him moving. How special! 

Sleep: Tossing and turning still.

What I am looking forward to: Still looking forward to finding a new bigger place so we can start his nursery. November 15th is my baby shower and I have registered at Babie's R US, Target, Walmart & online at Amazon.com!

I've got to get my scanner fixed...so I can scan in ultrasounds! Have a happy day!
