Gender: GIRL! See our gender reveal here.
Name: We are finally able to call our little blessing by name! I hope to be sharing her name soon!
Due Date: March 13, 2015
Still not sleeping soundly, but I am just dealing with it because it will probably be this time next year before I get a full night of uninterrupted sleep. Motherhood rocks. Anyway, I am still having to get up at least once a night to use the bathroom and my acid reflux has significantly worsened so that wakes me up at least two to three times each night. Wahhh.
Starting weight at 8 weeks: 127lbs.
Current weight: 146lbs. (HOLY weight gain. I have gained almost 13lbs. in 4 weeks!!)
I have definitely been able to notice the little extra bit of weight that I am carrying right now! The baby is carrying really low, so I have been feeling a lot of pressure and am already to the point where it's pretty uncomfortable to sit down and not be leaned back a bit, but that's expected since we are halfway there! Woohoo!!
Little girl has been moving around a ton, just like she has been for a few weeks now. She is still sitting really really low, which is extremely uncomfortable, but I love being able to feel her, regardless!
None!! My belly has gotten so much bigger over the last two weeks or so, so I really need to get better about rubbing down with that coconut oil, haha! I keep waiting for the infamous "line" to make it's re-appearance!
No nausea, but as I mentioned, my acid reflux has been from you-know-where. I have acid reflux all the time, but I just kind of deal with it and don't take a prescription or anything. When I was pregnant with Eli, it flared up really bad at about 6 months, but with this pregnancy it has been present and worsening for a while. Over the past four nights, I didn't sleep at all because of the terrible pain and have finally decided that I have no other choice but to start taking some medicine. It is no longer manageable with Tums and avoiding certain foods--it's constant and absolutely terrible! Fingers crossed this medicine works, because I don't think I can deal with it being like this until March!
No updates this week. Since our hospital referral everything has been out of whack at my regular OB and we are currently waiting on the date of our next appointment.
Super excited. In the past two weeks I have just been reveling in the fact that I am going to have a daughter! AHH! I was so shocked to find out that our little baby is a girl, but couldn't be more thrilled. I have already bought a few headbands and can't wait to stock up on some adorable clothes and accessories!
I have also been having all the feels lately. There have been quite a few things that have made me start tearing up for no good reason and it's a little crazy!!
Going about normal things, but has definitely shown signs of understanding the pregnancy more! He calls her by name, talks to her, and kisses my belly. The other day, a picture of a little newborn popped up on the screen while he was sitting with me and he was convinced it was our baby and kept calling her the baby's name! It was so adorable and nice to know that he understands that the baby is actually a baby, haha!! We have also been enjoying our time together. He is really active, but is still a great cuddler, so I am trying to soak up this one on one time with him. I know that once the baby comes I will think back on the days of being a mom of one, so I want to treasure these days. The weather was absolutely perfect, so we took him to the playground by our house the other day and it was so fun getting that time as a little family.
Also, he feels the need to be in all of the pictures I take for blog posts, which is both annoying and absolutely adorable at the same time...
Obviously our gender reveal was extremely exciting and I loved sharing that good news with everyone! Other than that, things have just been pretty normal around here. I am loving that the weather is cooling down because I am able to wear a lot of the maternity clothes I have been stocking up on for a while!
