Bump Date Week 24

Its another uneventful week! I had an appointment this week and they gave me my glucola to do my 1 hour glucose test sometime before my next appointment. Baby girl is kicking and punching and rolling all over the place. I can kind of feel her body parts protruding on my belly when she rolls, […]

Bump Date Week 23

Few! I’m getting to that part of pregnancy where its kind of hard to remember how many weeks I am! This week was wicked guys. The flu had us down for the count for an entire week, and then some. I’m still coughing, and my belly is so sore from that. I am pretty sure […]

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 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 […]

Bump Date Week 13

I’m officially in the second trimester! Baby did quite the growth spurt this week, and I definitely feel it. From more round ligament pain to popping and looking pregnant now, I definitely noticed baby’s growth spurt. Last Friday I called my doctor’s office and got my NIPT Progenity results back. Baby is healthy with no […]

Bump Date Week 7

Its week seven! I don’t know why this feels like a milestone for me, but it does. I have my first appointment this coming Monday. I’m nervous and excited all in one. Probably more nervous, because it will be our first look to confirm that everything is going ok. My symptoms are pretty much the […]
