Bump Date Week 35

We’re 35 weeks in people! I had my doctor’s appointment yesterday where they told me that I’m between 1-2cm dilated, but not very effaced yet. I’ve lost 3lbs in the two weeks since my last appointment. My belly is definitely growing though, so its me that lost the weight and not baby. My blood pressure […]

Bump Date Week 34

Its getting down to the wire! Week 34 has been met with some more discomfort as baby girl gets ever bigger. I’ve had the round ligament spasms, and a heaviness in my pelvis. Once in a while, she pushes with her feet and her head makes my cervix hurt. My lower back aches off and […]

Bump Date Week 33

Its week 33! I had my Ob appointment yesterday afternoon and had a little scare. My systolic blood pressure was in the 140s. They ended up re checking it before I left and it had dropped into the 130s, but that is still high for me. Pre pregnancy and in early pregnancy I usually run […]

Bump Date Week 32

Its week 32! Baby girl is about 3 3/4 pounds and gaining half a pound a week now. She has nails and probably hair – we might get to see how much at our 3d ultrasound next week! She gets hiccups a lot and is still facing directly forward. She moves a lot, pushing her […]

Bump Date Week 31

Baby girl is 31 weeks in! This week has been pretty much the same. Heartburn is absolutely the worst symptom for me. It makes it so hard to eat because it seems like the second I swallow something, I get acid reflux. Laying down is hard. Finding something bland to eat is hard because I […]

Bump Date Weeks 27-29

Because we went on vacation, and had virtually no cell service, and because we just wanted to be in #vacaymode, I didn’t post any bump dates for the last two weeks. So I’m playing catch up this week! I’m officially 29 weeks pregnant this week and things have definitely felt like the third trimester is […]

Bump Date Week 26

Baby girl is nearing two pounds this week and about 14 inches! I can feel her rolls and movements a lot better this week. Everything on my end is the same old same old. After having my bout of fatigue last week, I quickly realized that I was just getting sick. I’m still coughing a […]

Captain’s Log Day 2,374

We are finally out of the sickness woods. I have never been more ready for summer. Between the sickness and the flooding rains we’ve had, I am so excited to be outdoors. We have been outside every evening since the rain stopped. Unfortunately the rain and floods have wiped out several roads and bridges in […]

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, […]
