Appointment with Perinatologist at 20w

We went on Thursday for our high risk visit. I was so nervous not knowing what would be wrong with our daughter or myself. Everything was perfect!! She is wonderful and healthy and growing just wonderfully! She was even sucking her thumb it was so cute and we have a picture of her laying back with her hands behind her head just like her daddy does!! Tim thought that was very cute! She was grabbing her feet and tugging on her cord. She was sooo not shy about showing her goods again, so deffffff a girl!!

We have a cute pictures but I have yet to figure out how to upload them on here. I did a couple times but I have no idea how I did that. IF anyone can tell me how then I will add them.

Pregnancy is going well so far, no more vomitting except in the morning which I can deal with. I still have't gained any weight but I assure you that I will be soon and rapidly making up for lost time. I have such a huge bump, it look much farther along than 20 weeks.

I cant even believe that I am 20w along already, its just going by so fast and part of me just wants to keep her in there forever! All to myself with her little kicks and rolling around!

We are finally getting prepared for her now knowing that she will actually be a part of our home. I cant believe we are having a baby!!!

Wow Its been a long time

It has come to my attention that I have not updated for quite some time. I cant believe its been over a month. Honestly, I forgot about the blog since I have been so busy. This is for you BN.

Lets see, a lot has happened, we found out that we are having a GIRL!!!!! Her name is Fallon Rose. WE are beyond thrilled to be having a daughter! My Morning sickness is Finally going away. Its finally starting to sink in that we are having a baby after all these years. She moves now, not all the time but usually after I eat she starts wiggling up a storm. Tim is totally in love with the idea of having a little girl to pamper and treat like a princess. I am still working but looks like I will start to slow down a bit because of swelling in my legs which is no biggie. I will probably just see patients in the morning and desk work in the afternoon.

We are still a go for our move to NY in January. I am excited but sad that I cant set up a nursery until After Fallon is born. However, it gives me something to do until I find a new job in NY. I may just take a job as a RN in a hospital, less hours and I can work just 3 twelve hour shifts a week and be home with my daughter the rest. We will see when the time comes.

How far along: 18 weeks and 5 days

Total weight gain: I still havent gained any weight besides a few pounds back from what I lost in the beginning.

How much does baby weigh: about 5-6 ozs

Maternity clothes: I am full on into maternity clothes, I have quite the bump going on. I was fluffy before getting PG so I am sure that has something to do with it.

Stretch marks: I have them already from my first pregnancy (loss)

Sleep: I take a nap during the day and I am in bed by 9pm.

Best moment this week: Starting to buy things we need for our baby

Movement: Here and there, once in a blue moon a kick but mostly little wiggles here and there.

Food cravings: veggie party platters, yes the WHOLE platter haha!!

Belly button in or out: Obviously still an innie

What I miss: Sleeping on my belly.

What I'm looking forward to: WHen she is born!!

Milestone: Making it this far and finding out we are having a daughter!!
