Bump Date Week 22

We had our ultrasound on Friday and she is indeed a girl. Everyone is pretty excited, many calling us “lucky.” She didn’t have any signs of a cleft, as her nose and lips looked perfect – squishy and sweet. Her little ears are identical to Ivan’s as far as I could tell. I think she […]

Bump Date Week 21

Its week 21! I have my ultrasound scheduled for tomorrow afternoon and I can’t wait! This week has been pretty much more of the same. Still tire quickly, still having food aversions. Cravings are pizza and Sonic cherry limeades – mostly so I can eat the ice after. I’m having random bouts of sciatic pain, […]

Bump Date Week 20

We’re half way there!! Baby Girl is kicking and rolling so much lately its insane. There’s been this sudden increase in movement and her strength is crazy too. I can actually feel her rolling now, not just those fluttery kicks. Javier and I have both felt her from the outside now, and sometimes when I […]

Bump Date Week 19!

Its week 19! This week baby girl is measuring just over 10 inches from head to heel and about 10.5 ounces. Lately I’ve started to notice that she uses up all of her energy over a couple days, being very active and seemingly awake most of the day, and then has a rest day where […]

Bump Date Week 18

This week has been a lot more of the same. Insomnia, tiredness, round ligament pain, thirst, aversions, some cravings, and more movement. I feel her a lot now. I’ve felt her from the outside twice this week, but I had to lie down and be very patient. I bought a blanqui brand maternity support tank […]

Bump Date Week 17

Its week 17! So far this week, things have been pretty good for me. I’ve been in a better mood this week which is good. The gorgeous weather has helped a lot too, I’m sure. My appetite is getting better – read: more cravings – but I still have aversions. I’ve been into pizza, cherry […]

What Not To Say To A Pregnant Person

This pregnancy, I am just generally annoyed at any given time. It doesn’t take much for me to snip at people for something they say or do that makes me just eyeroll. I’m so hormonally angry this pregnancy. I get in bad moods that I can’t conceal, so people definitely know when to give me […]

Bump Date Week 15

This week has been more of the same. Still having insomnia, thirst, fatigue, stuffy nose, skin and hair dryness, reflux, round ligament pain, headaches, and food aversions. This week my craving has been pizza, though Reuben sandwiches and subway still sound good. I have been getting waves of constipation. Its like a pattern of not […]

Bump Date Week 14

Its week fourteen! This week has been more of the same. Insomnia – at least 2-3 times a night. Drinking lots of water, headaches, sciatica, fatigue, stuffy nose, etc. My food aversions are still present, but I have a much better appetite. Its strange that I can have those two things at the same time, […]
