Bump day week 33!

Only 48 days(ish) to go! Baby brother is starting to run out of room in there. I had my NST Monday and it went smoothly; still no dilation but regular Braxton Hicks. I saw the nurse practitioner at my appointment Wednesday and she said that baby is passing his tests with flying colors so they […]

What’s In My Diaper Bag?

In my honest opinion, I don’t think you need much of anything for baby when you go to the hospital. The hospital/birthing center will usually provide you with everything that you need to get through those couple days that you stay. Diapers, wipes, formula (if you choose), binkie, a swaddle and even a little onsie. […]

Bump day week 32!

This week has been another pretty average week. My second NST went much more smoothly and I was in and out in just over an hour. I even waited for a room because OB was busy. They didn’t do any extra testing even though my contractions were still consistent. I am really anxious to hear […]

First Non Stress Test

Last Thursday I had my first NST. I went to radiology at 2 and got the biophysical profile done and then headed to the OB ward. My nurse hooked me up to the monitors and then started asking questions for my chart (height, weight, how many pregnancies, medical history blah blah blah). After we got […]

Bump day week 31!

Today I had a doctors appointment. It was one of those in and out ones. I saw the nurse practitioner instead of my doctor today because he was at the hospital. There wasn’t a whole lot to go over or check up on today so it was pretty fast. I got a note to get […]

Bump day week 30!

I’m in the home stretch you guys! Baby brother is the size of a head of cabbage this week. He definitely has a sleep/wake schedule in place which is fun. He wakes up right as I get to work in the mornings and stays awake until I eat breakfast. He also wakes up when I […]

Bump day week 28!

Sorry I’m a day late! Yesterday I had a lot of catching up to do on the laundry pile and housework that I didn’t have time to post. This week Little Brother is the size of an eggplant and about 2 1/4 pounds. He must have turned last night because today I have noticed that […]

Bump day week 27!

Two pounds and 14.5 inches long! Welcome to the last week of the second trimester! Baby brother has been getting the hiccups lately which is so sweet! I can see and feel his movements very well now. Even others can tell that he is doing a somersault in there when they watch my belly contort […]

Bump day week 26!

Only 98 more days (give or take) until we get to meet our little miracle! Baby brother weighs about 1 2/3  pounds and is 14 inches long! He can open his eyes now and can hear just about everything. He is scared of the toilet flushing (he jumps pretty hard when he hears it). I […]

Bump day week 25!

This week has been pretty much just like last week so there isn’t much to update on. I did my 1 hour glucose tolerance test and I failed it. So now I get to do the 3 hour test in a couple weeks. I wasn’t happy about it but it didn’t surprise me that I […]
