19 weeks! It’s just crazy! Time has gone way to quickly!
How I’m Feeling this Week: It’s been a tough week for me, relationship wise. Callie and I had a tough go this week, mainly based around finances (her being offered a job making REALLY good money and deciding against it, although I completely understand why, but doesn’t mean I’m happy about her decision! No matter what I support her and we’ll figure it out). In regards to pregnancy though, it’s been pretty great!
How Big is Biscuit: Biscuit is the size of a MANGO! Yummmm! I remember my first month of pregnancy and all I wanted was to eat mangoes all day and night, and now our baby is the size of one, and growing rapidly from here, which is what i understand. Something about a growth spurt these next 2-3 weeks. Also, for you like minded folks who find these fruit comparisons have too many variables, Biscuit is the size of a softball. Imagine?!
Baby Bump News?: I’ve noticed that I am definitely looking more pregnant and all of my button down shirts have started to to struggle with the buttons a bit. Otherwise, this baby is growing. Also, MOVEMENT!!!! I wasn’t convinced at first, but now i KNOW this baby is moving around. I’m still not used to feeling it, so most of the time it totally catches me off guard. Callie can’t wait to be able to feel it, and I remember being in her shoes not even a year ago. It’ super exciting to actually start feeling what pregnancy feels like.
Sleep: No issues with sleep at all…yet…not even having to pee in the middle of the night!
Food Loves/Hates: Cheese sandwiches!!! YUMMY! And still don’t really want salad…it’s weird because I LOVE salad!
Symptoms: Nothing at all actually…not even a headache in the past week. Actually, I take that back. I think I may be experiencing some slight round ligament pain. I think that’s happening…
Next Scan: My next appointment is scheduled for October 8th, for the anatomy scan. Still can’t decide if we want to find out, but I’m leaning more towards yes…kinda…maybe…
Sex: Because of the crappy week Callie and I had, we barely cuddled so it’s fair to say sex was non-existent this week. Also baby sex/gender area, still no idea, but I’m dead set that it’s a girl Haven’t even looked at any boys names at all…
Overall Feelings: I’m excited about actually looking pregnant, so that’s making me feel really happy. Also, being almost half way, and also a few weeks away from viability makes everyone feel awesome, or is that just me?!
Something I Didn’t Expect: I wasn’t expecting what it feels like to have a baby moving around inside of me. I always thought it would be just, I dunno, very exact and obvious, but it wasn’t. It’s weird, but also really comforting. I’ve been using the doppler less, because with all the blood pressure stuff I was freaking out thinking that this baby was not ok, but with the movement, I didn’t expect to suddenly just feel relief. I don’t have that overwhelming feeling that things are gonna get all screwed up and something terrible is gonna happen. I didn’t expect that almost half way through, I would be embracing this pregnancy and really starting to live it.
