Bump-Date #2: Week 21

Baby Size: 10.5"; Carrot
Baby Weight: 12.2oz
I'm feeling a lot better this week than I did last week.  I am still super tired, but that is to be expected when you're growing a little person on the inside and chasing a little person on the outside! Baby dos seems to be more active this week too, which is a love/hate thing.  I love to feel him moving around, don't get me wrong, but I hate when I'm at work and he starting playing kickball with my bladder!  I know it's just a phase and he will calm down, so I try to cherish the active moments and not be to irritated by the oh crap I gotta go moments :) haha!

So this morning I was taking a belly picture after I got ready for work, and Colton came in and was watching me.  When I was satisfied with one, I looked at him and he pulled his shirt up and said 'my turn momma!'  So here's that cuteness!

Bump-Date #2: Weeks 18-20

Week 18
Baby Size: 6.5"; Sweet Potato
Baby Weight: 6.7oz

Week 19
Baby Size: 6.5"; Mango
Baby Weight: 8.5oz

Week 20
Baby Size: 10"; Banana
Baby Weight: 10.5oz

I can't believe it has been so long since my last update!  The last 3 weeks had been pretty uneventful until earlier this week.  I started feeling icky, not sick, just like something wasn't right.  I happened to have my 20 week appointment today, so I was basically feeling like 'as long as I make it to Thursday all will be good.'  At my appointment today, I told my dr how I have been feeling; extremely weak, tired, no appetite, not feeling like myself, having braxton hicks and being a little disoriented.  I told my dr all of this today, and he basically said 'yep you're pregnant welcome to the 2nd half of pregnancy!'  I was like oh gee thanks! I still think something more is wrong that 'being pregnant', so I'm going keep an eye on myself and see.  He said to get more rest and drink more water.  I was like well okay I'm doing that, but still feeling crappy.  So I dunno.  My bp was up a little today, 134/78.  I talked with my nurse about it, and she said they don't get concerned until it gets to 140+.  I know that 140 is technically considered high, but 134 is high for me considering my bp is normally 115-120.  I just don't want to end up with pre-eclampsia or anything, so I'm going to do what I can to keep it low; drink more water, eat fresh foods, cut down on sodium, stop drinking soda, etc.  Hopefully that will help!  I just worry about these Texas summer's I'm going into...

Bump-Date #2: Weeks 16 & 17

Ok sorry, I am horrible about blogging this go much to do and so little time it feels like!!

Week 16:
Baby Size: 4.5"; Avocado
Baby Weight: 3.5oz

Week 17:
Baby Size: 5.1"; Onion
Baby Weight: 5.5oz

The past two weeks have been pretty crazy at work and at home both!  I had my 16 week appointment March 27th and I got to hear the heartbeat in love with that sound!  I then got a call on Friday to say that my ultrasound would be April 1st; yes April Fool's day!  I was like awesome can't wait!!  I have been having issues with my sciatica nerve, but I had that issue with Colton as well I just wish there was so sort of relief for it!  The dr just says to relax and stay off my feet, but that there isn't much I can do for it since it's just the baby putting pressure on the nerves in my lower back; oh well that's one of the sacrifices I will make!

People tell me that I don't look like I'm showing, but I totally see it!
