19 week update

Wow I can't believe next week will be the "half way" point. 

I don't know my weight. It's been about a month since I checked it. My appetite came back then the last two weeks we've been sick. Normally it doesn't affect my appetite but it did. And now I'm nauseous again. All day the past couple days. One day ill enjoy food again. 

My belly is growing but I feel like its slowed down. My boobs feel bigger and are still sore. I don't feel movements yet. I keep thinking it could be him but nothing.  I push on my uterus to try to get him moving and no luck. I do have a spot on the right side though that hurts when pushed. I want to ask my dr about it because its hurt for awhile now. 

I don't seem to have to pee as often. I think because he's moved up some. I still sleep on my tummy and that's the best position. My exhaustion is gone now too and I'm very grateful. 

While we were gone for our 3 week trip I was so bummed not to have my Doppler. So the first night home (3 nights ago) I was so excited to sit and listen to him. 

We've started discussing names but that's going to take awhile I think... I'm so indecisive. 

Anyway not much else to report. Overall I feel good.  Can't wait to feel kicks though. 

We're home!!!

Our 3 week jaunt to visit friends is over and we are both pretty happy to be home. We drove to Vegas, flew to Fargo, visiting Connie and the kids for two weeks, flew back to Vegas, spent a few days, and drove home. 3 weeks is really long to be gone. I've missed my bed, and my animals. It was so good to cuddle them all once we got home. Leiland was even really excited to see them. For 3 weeks Leiland and I have shared a bed, so tonight is the first night back in his own bed. Even since Tim deployed he wakes at least once a night and usually comes to our bed. Since he already has to readjust to being home and in bed without me, I am taking this time to try and reestablish him sleeping the whole night in his bed. I love cuddling him but I would rather he get a better night sleep and I want the bed free when its time for baby to join. Leiland had a great trip overall, however we both got sick a week in and its still going. He has also been teething hard core and got his first 2 year molar to break through the gums. Two more are making good progress and one is just waiting (he always has slower teeth in that spot on the top right). So pictures are to come, but for now we rest, and clean the house. I still need to unpack.

16 week update

Oops just a day late. 

We're out of town this week and next so I missed my day. No biggie. 

Feeling great and sleeping better. Last night had horribly vivid bad dreams which kept me up but till got more sleep then I have recently. My appetite is definitely back. I didn't eat much traveling though. Everything I tried made me want to puke. But since we have gotten to my friends I have been able to eat just fine and above normal quantities. 

I feel huge. Don't have a weight check this week but wearing maternity tops and bottoms now. 

I am dying to feel this baby move. Before my bad dreams last night I had a dream I could feel movement. Man I wish that had been true. 

Not much to report really. 

It's back!!!

My appetite that is. Felt good to actually be able to eat today. I had 4 waffels for breakfast, a full size salad at panera, then I had a snack on the drive home, and a 6" sub for dinner. I am ready for a snack too. This is probably more than double what I have been able to eat these days. Felt great.

15 week update

Some days I feel like this pregnancy is taking forever and others I am shocked I'm already x weeks. Today marks 15 weeks. YAY. For the most part feeling great, but the past few days getting nauseous. Both because I'm hungry, and also making it impossible to eat certain things. Today I went to eat lunch and once it was in front of me I just struggled to take a bit. I only are about half and had to force myself to eat that much. Could be worse I suppose. I still pee like a race horse. I don't know why I have to go so often and it hurts SO bad to hold it. Pretty sure people think I am nuts. At dinner last night I had to go 3 times while we had dinner in front of us. Oops. Oh well though.

So I weighed myself this morning - 178.8 so still down 1.2 pounds but slowly climbing back to my starting weight. Not worried about that at all. I think thats pretty good. I think that puts me about the same weight at this point with Leiland. Just with him I started at 170 not 180. Either way looks good at the moment.

Tomorrow is my elective gender scan. 15 weeks and 1 day. I can't wait to see for myself what this baby is. Even though I have already been given the blood results from the maternity 21 test.

Still no feeling baby move. That is the part I am most excited for this pregnancy. I have seen how active this kid is and I just can't wait to feel it for myself. I absolutely loved it with Leiland and he moved so little. This one I know will be more active.

My back has been bothering me for a few days now. A warm bath didn't help any and I don't really know how else to help it. I am going to try and get in for a massage but not sure if I can make that work. I really struggle to carry Leiland now, but he is getting better walking places and holding my hand if its not too far. We are working hard on walking and listening while going through a store. Some days I just don't' have the patience to deal with taking twice as long on a shopping trip. So he goes in the cart per my request.

I have noticed my sense of smell is definitely stronger. Lets just say my toilet is cleaned more often and the trash emptied more frequently. I just can't stand the smell of either. Oh and milk gone bad? Make me puke.

I was really constipated for a couple weeks, but it seems a little better this week. Drinking water and upping fiber gummies isn't helping ANY.

I definitely think my belly is getting bigger. Forgot again today to take a picture, so I will just take it tomorrow a day late. No big deal I suppose. I am in maternity pants now and some tops. I don't have much for short sleeves and my shirts ride up real bad, so this weekend I am headed to motherhood maternity.

Thats all I really have for now. Not too much to report. I have my OB appt Tuesday and I will update after that.
