So today marks week 20 of my pregnancy. I am halfway through and so excited. According to my Iphone App, Jamison is about the length of a banana (10 inches) and weighs about 10 1/2 ounces. My belly is rapidly growing, we will probably take some more pictures this weekend. He started kicking about a week ago, but I’m the only one who can feel it. I think that frustrates Greg a little bit. I started getting all my ideas for the baby shower and started registering, it was a blast! I let greg stay home for that one and took Heather instead. We had so much fun! Hopefully I will have more pictures to post this weekend because apparently I don’t post enough (Theresa).
So, yesterdays Doctor appointment went well, I had blood drawn and a flu shot and stayed conscious the whole time. It was very exciting. We also heard the heartbeat, it’s still fluttering strong at 160 beats per minute.The 18th can’t come soon enough three couples in our prenatal group already know what they are having and it’s so exciting. I already have nursery’s picked out for either sex so I’m super exited to narrow that down. We met a couple in our group that lives about 5 minutes from us and have a lot in common with us. They are having a little girl and are due about 2 weeks before me. This whole experience has been so incredible so far and I’m so excited to bring our little baby into the world. Hopefully I will feel better soon so I can enjoy this time. I still get sick about one or two times a week and it’s miserable. That’s all i have for now. I will update more when there is something to be said.
Today I’m officially 14 weeks. Apparently the baby is about the size of a lemon and weighs 1 1/2 ounces. I’m finally getting over the morning sickness and can eat meat at lunch time. It is very exciting!
I promise I will try to start updating more. My last Dr. appointment was very interesting. The baby would not cooperate at all and was facing its back to us the whole time so the pictures are not very good.
We also learned that I have to lie down while they take blood. I passed out for a couple minutes and scared everyone, especially greg. I’m pretty sure he almost passed out too.
We have our next sonogram scheduled for October 18th and that is when we find out the gender!!!
We are taking some photos this weekend to get a shot of my belly so I will post those as soon as we get them done.
So my doctor’s office does this really cool thing called Very Important Pregnancy. It is a group meeting once a month after your regular exam where you get to spend time with other people who are due around the same time as you. We had our first meeting yesterday, and I have to say I really enjoyed it. It was nice talking to other women who are at the same point in their pregnancy as I am and getting to know them and what they are finding works for them as far as eating is concerned. I haven’t ventured too far past mac and cheese and still cannot keep meet down so eating has not been a very pleasant experience for me. I thought it was getting better then yesterday it started over again. I haven’t kept anything down since my lunch yesterday which was probably an english muffin. I am now sipping on some pedialyte hoping it stays down so I can at least stay hydrated.
