17 weeks, 4 days

Ladies, I just discovered the joys of the belly band. My capris started off the season very loose (That's what loosing 20 lbs will do to pants!)

Even though I'm still down about 6 lbs, my pants are starting to get tight and uncomfortable by the end of the day. So, today, I asked DH to pretty please stop at Target and we bought me a black belly band. OMG! I'm NEVER buttoning ANY pants ever again! I LOVE IT!!! I'm going to order the white one tomorrow. I'm also pretty excited because I was sure I'd need the L/XL which is only available online. But the M/L fits perfectly! Small victories, am I right??

I ordered another batch of maternity clothes from Old Navy. Still haven't found jeans that work yet. But I'm thinking about making my own.

I'm finally starting to feel like I will eventually look more pregnant than fat. I KNOW I'm pregnant, and I can feel/see changes in my body. But nothing that's apparent to other people (except DH). I'm surrounded by pregnant people at school, and I just want to be cute and bumpy like them! And today, I'm having the kind of day where I KNOW I will. I just have to be patient.

Seriously, week 17 has been the most positive week of my pregnancy. I think a lot of it has to do with fall coming and I'm not exhausted or pukey (well... not ALL the time, at least!)

Have a great weekend! I'll do another update after we cross over to week 18. (Oh, and if you care about my mental health, pray that fall is here to stay. I think anymore summer weather will drive me off the deep end! I just want chilli and sweaters and apple spiced candles already!!! NO MORE HEAT!)

19 weeks, 2 days

This has been the busiest week of the school year so far. Every day, Brian and I have extra things going on. It's really been go go go... We really are not used to getting home after 8... It's taken a lot of strength, will power, and most importantly patience to get through this week... and we still have 3.5 days until things settle down. I'm not complaining -- it's been a (mostly) fun week. My pregnant body is just struggling to keep up, my emotions are making it hard to patient and understanding. And, I'm just tired. Despite that, I know it's week like these that bring Brian and I closer together and build our relationships with each other, our school, and our community -- our family away from family. I wouldn't change it for anything -- I would just maybe space it out more.


Symptoms: While I definitely have more energy than I did the first 14 weeks, I tire easily. But really, I feel good. I've gotten sick a few times this week in the morning -- pretty sure it's just this nasty drainage stuff still... there's nothing I can do to stop it, I just have to roll with it.

Frequent, emergent bathroom trips! Sneezing is scary -- for real, it's only a matter of time before I pee myself. Oh, and I'm feeling round ligament pains often.

Weight: I'm fluctuating between being down 5-6 lbs since finding out I was pregnant. BUT... I'm eating really well. So I know it's only a matter of time before I start gaining. Also, my waist is growing. It's so nice to know that for ONCE in my life, my changing body is because I'm growing a person... not just gaining weight.

Cravings: Sharp cheddar cheese, watermelon, donuts, butterfingers. Thankfully, I'm able to limit myself on those last two cravings... but they're definitely there!

Aversions: Chicken, pork, bread.

Baby Update: This little squishy baby is making his/her presence known! Most days, I feel baby fluttering around quite a bit -- usually between 9-10 am, 2-3 pm, and 8-10 pm. The last few days, when I've felt very stressed, I don't feel a ton of movement.

DH Update: Brian is starting to actively touch my belly. It's pretty awesome. He's also starting to get excited about getting stuff for baby. It helps that we have our furniture now. So the next step really is to get ready for baby!!!

Appointments: Yesterday, I had my neurology check up. He's pleased with how I'm doing... but we did have to up my dose because I've been having random headaches. He said that I WILL be allowed to push during labor. That there are safeguards we can take to make sure that spinal fluid pressure doesn't build up too much -- the most logical would be to have an epidural. That way, if they NEED to, they can use the same entry place to poke a small leak of spinal fluid. He also assured us that if I absolutely have to have a lumbar puncture during pregnancy, they are safe for me and baby. It was a great appointment!!!

Up next: October 4 will be my next OB appointment -- we'll do blood tests and an early glucose check. And of course, get to hear that sweet little heartbeat!

THEN... October 12 we'll have our anatomy scan! It's getting closer and closer... eek!!!!

Other news: We canned tomato sauce last weekend (11 quarts, 5 pints). Somewhere during the process, I got really, really tense. I'm still sore in my upper back -- right between my shoulders. Hopefully I can find time to relax and take a nice warm bath and decompress!

Well... I'm off to my next obligation. One more thing I'll be able to cross off of my to-do list!

Great update (sorry I'm just catching up on the journals)!

I'm having issues with sinus drainage, too. Nothing new (had to stop taking flonase when we were TTC) but you're right, it does make you more nauseous. Bleh!

Omg! You're half way there tomorrow!! Holy cow!!

20 weeks -- HALFWAY!!!

Holy cow! I can not believe that I've been pregnant for 20 weeks, and that in 20 more weeks, we'll have a baby!!! I've gotten used to the fact that I'm pregnant, but this milestone kind of blows my mind and feels completely surreal.

Symptoms: Sleeping is uncomfortable and down right difficult. I made a U-shaped pillow that is helping a bit, but it's hard to fall into a deep sleep and it's hard to find a spot that stays comfortable.

My appetite is through the roof. I want to eat everything.

My belly button is itchy. Weird, right?

Weight: You'd think that I'd be gaining a tremendous amount of weight, but I'm still down 6 lbs.

Cravings: Donuts. I could eat a dozen if I had them available. That's the only real "craving", mostly, I just want to eat EVERYTHING!

Aversions: Oh... everything except chicken and bread.

Baby Update: I think it's only a matter of time before Brian is able to feel this little baby kicking. The flutters are getting stronger by the day -- and way more frequent. We read last night that the baby is getting eyebrows and eye lashes. Brian seriously cooed with excitement and said "I bet they are the most adorable eye brows you've ever seen." Be still my heart...

DH Update: I think he's really jealous that I can feel the baby. He keeps talking about the anatomy scan. He says he's ready to find out if we're having a son or daughter, but he's kind of scared too... not because he has a preference, but because it's going to make it so much more real.

Appointments: OB appointment on Thursday. High Risk OB appointment/anatomy scan on the 12th!

Other news: My mom spent the weekend in the hospital. They are still unsure what exactly happened, but she was having severe stomach pains. Tests showed that there was something going on with her pancreas and gall stones. Luckily, she avoided having to have her gall bladder removed -- but she's going to have to meet with more doctors to figure out what caused this attack/flare up. She is feeling better today and is on a strict low-fat diet. It was kind of scary, but I'm so thankful she's ok.

Sorry to hear about your mum, I hope the doctors are able to give her some answers soon.

I feel you about the round ligament pain - ouch!

The 12th will be here soon! Do you have any mummy feelings either way as to boy or girl??

I hope your mom is feeling better. My sister had the same thing happened, and it turned out it was her gallbladder after all. Maybe it was b/c she was younger, but the doctors were extremely hesitant to diagnose it as her gallbladder, even though all signs pointed to needing to have it removed.

So, so happy for you that you are halfway!! What a wonderful feeling!

Girl, I craved donuts before I was pregnant. I'm a fiend now

21 weeks

Thanks for the kind words about my momma. She's doing well. She goes in tomorrow for a follow up appointment. Hopefully it goes well!

*note: the "other news" part of this update is weighing heavy on my heart. It'll be one of those things that gets real...

Symptoms: Emotional wreck... let me tell you. Kleenex are my best friend -- mascara is my enemy.

I urinate every morning at 5:00 AM. Which makes it hard to fall back asleep -- leaving me awake for an hour and a half before I need to be...

Weight: Same...

Cravings: Nothing, really. Just water. I can't get enough...

Aversions: I'm warming up to chicken again. So that's nice...

Baby Update: This baby is a wiggle worm that doesn't like people searching for him/her. At the OB appointment on Thursday, we heard the heartbeat for MAYBE a total of a second? Baby just kept moving around and avoiding the OB.

I can pretty much expect movement between 9-10 AM, 2-3 PM, and as soon as I lay on the couch to relax.

DH Update: Still waiting to feel baby move. But he's touching my belly a lot more, so hopefully one of these times baby will cooperate. (Do you see a theme here? We have a very uncooperative baby!!!)

Appointments: High-risk OB appointment on Saturday morning! Hopefully we'll find out the gender, but honestly, I'm not holding my breath. This little wiggler is making me think that there won't be any cooperation during the u/s.

Next OB appointment at 24 weeks. I think our appt is on Halloween?

Other news: Okay. So here's where the bulk of the update will be.

At the appointment on Thursday, I took my one-hour glucose screening. My results were high. My doctors cutoff is 130. I was 136. I was really frustrated. When I researched, I found most doctor's have a cutoff of 140. Which I was below... But after some frustrating conversations with the nurse, it became apparent that there was no way to get out of the 3-hour glucose tolerance test.

I cried so much yesterday... just dreading this test. But, I just sucked it up and went in today. (See my breakdown post in the Feb DDC... for more tears...)

My results came back. My fasting level and 3rd hour level were great. My middle two were crazy high. My OB says that it's gestational diabetes. So that's that. The diabetes education specialist at the hospital will call tomorrow to set up an appointment. Once I get my monitor, I'll have to test my blood sugars 4 times a day.

Ladies... I feel like a failure. I KNOW in the rational part of my brain that this diagnosis has nothing to do with my weight or family history... it has everything to do with how my placenta and pancreas are interacting during this pregnancy. The rational part of me is glad we are catching this now so I can do what I need to do to care for my precious baby. The rational part of me knows that I will be ok.

But ladies, I'm not a rational person. And the emotional/feeling part of me is devistated. The emotional part of me feels like a moron for getting pregnant before getting into shape. The emotional part of me is worrying that switching my diet (again...) will cause me to lose more weight than I have... which is not good at this point. The emotional part of me is dreading poking myself 4 times a day for the next 20 weeks. The emotional part of me is so overwhelmed and scared and I just want to see my baby right now to make sure my little wiggle bean is healthy right now. Shoot, the emotional part of me just cries. Because the emotional part of me is struggling to see how it's NOT my fault and the emotional part of me feels like a huge failure at pregnancy.

I don't know how I'm going to cope. I literally can't say the words out loud without completely breaking down. I know that once I meet with the experts, I'll start finding ways to cope. But in the meantime... it just sucks...

Saturday can't come soon enough -- hopefully we get some good news and cute pictures. I mean this today more than ever... All I want to see on Saturday is a healthy baby. I don't care if it's a boy or a girl... I just need it to be healthy.

SO MUCH has happened since my last update! Holy cow... Let's just break it down...

Symptoms: Not a lot of noticeably pregnancy related ones - My stomach itches by the end of the day, my boobs feel like watermelons, occasional headaches, frequent urination, poor sleeping.

I'm pretty sure I'm getting sick. I've felt kind of off all week. Today, I finally started running a low-grade fever that I was able to stave off with Tylenol.

Weight: No gain. Still down at least 6 lbs... high risk OB's scale had me down 8.

Gestational Diabetes: Last Monday, I saw the dietician and the nurse educator. We got me hooked up with all the testing supplies and knowledge I need to control this GD. But here's the thing... in one week of observing my numbers, and NOT changing my diet, my numbers are great. My fasting number should be under 95 --- it's usually about 86. My 2 hour after a meal number should be under 120 -- it's usually about 95-100. Today was the ONLY day my numbers have looked abnormally high (but still under the max) -- I'm attributing that to eating late last night, and having a carb heavy birthday dinner w/ my parents. Because who can control themselves with yummy homemade comfort food???

So, I'm wondering if my high results could have been stress induced. I'm at a point where I don't mind checking my numbers -- although I'd rather NOT do it 4 times a day. But, I really don't think I have an issue... at least not yet.

Cravings: Hard Boiled Eggs and Peanut Butter Toast. YUM!

Aversions: Pork. And usually chicken, but tonight, my mom made homemade chicken noodles for me and it was p.e.r.f.e.c.t.

Baby Update: At our high risk OB appointment, we got to see our sweet little baby. The tech looked at the heart and kidneys -- both functioning normally. We looked at sweet little babies arms and leg bones. And then... the money shot. We're going to be the proud parents of a little baby girl. She's weighing in at 1 lb. The tech couldn't get a good view of her spine or some vessels around her heart - so we go back in on Nov 9 for another u/s.

This little lady has become so active in the last week! I feel her moving most of the day and in the middle of the night. Sometimes, it makes me feel sick -- others it hurts. But all the time, I love it. I absolutely enjoy feeling her squirming around, knowing she's growing and getting stronger every day.

DH Update: He's been able to feel movement almost every night. He's completely smitten with her. And I'm smitten with them both.

Appointments: OB appointment on Oct 31. High Risk OB appointment on Nov 9. Hopefully we'll be able to decrease how many times I test every day pending my numbers stay normal.

Other news: We've gone crazy buying things! Clothes, diapers, blankets. This little lady is already spoiled!

My mom goes in on Friday to have her gallbladder removed. It's an outpatient surgery, so I'll go take care of her for the weekend until she's feeling better. She's kind of nervous, but it's good they are taking it out now while she's healthy and not have to wait until she has another attack! I'm glad I can be there for her -- hopefully I'll be able to help keep her calm.

What an awesome update!! So, so happy for you that you are having a little girl!!! Oh man how exciting and real it all must be now, especially that you are feeling her!!

1) That is really gross to me that you are craving hard boiled eggs! Ha!
2) Happy to see your GD numbers are good. So maybe not as big of an issue as initially thought? And is it common to lose weight with GD? I know very little about it.
3) Prayers and good thoughts to your mom. My sister's recovery was a little rough, but she went in in bad shape.

Thanks for checking in on me ladies! I think my concerns about losing weight because of the GD is that if I'm watching my carb intake, it means I'll definitely eat less... and if I'm eating less carbs, I have a good feeling that I'm going to lose weight... ya know???

Symptoms: achy hips, feeling faint when I get too hot, heavy boobs, my non-maternity jeans have officially been put away...

Weight: Who knows??? I've been too scared to check. We'll see on Thursday!

Gestational Diabetes: Last week, my lunch numbers were off the chart. Not sure why. Also, my fasting numbers were higher than the week before. I think that's from the icky feeling I've been having -- I think I'm getting sick.

Cravings: Peanut butter -- but it seems to make me burpy. (And YES, I'm still on a hard boiled egg kick!!!)

Aversions: I think I've actually kicked my chicken aversion!!! YAY!

Baby Update: This little lady is a mover and a shaker -- until her daddy tries to get a feel, then she stops. It's kind of precious/annoying.

DH Update: See above -- he's feeling frustrated that she doesn't want to move for him. But he's been reading to her every night, so hopefully she'll get used to his voice and his hands on my pregnant looking tummy!

Appointments: OB appointment on Oct 31. High Risk OB appointment on Nov 9.
I'm so excited for this appointment... mostly because I want to hear her precious little heartbeat.

Other news:
Mom's surgery went really well. She struggled waking up from the anesthesia, and she's definitely sore. But she's been able to keep down food, so that's good! I think that her recovery will be pretty smooth.

I'm freaking out about the fact we only have 114 days to get ready for this baby. Any carseat recommendations are greatly welcomed!

Well... off to take care of the laundry. Ugh. It's definitely a task that's getting harder every weekend.

Symptoms: My belly is tight, it's so cool to watch her move throughout the day. Sometimes, she's sitting really high, others she's low. I'm loving my pregnant body right now. I'm not loving how none of my clothes fit right.

My bladder is shrinking, I think. I drink a glass of water, and immediately have to go pee. I can also tell that my uterus is big enough now that it's taking up room that other organs - like my intestines - would like to have back.

Also, I notice that if no one is watching, I waddle. It just feels better on my achy hips. But I try to walk like a normal person if people are around.

Weight: I'm down another 3 lbs. My OB says that eventually I'll start to gain, and she's not worried about it. But it's frustrating. At least I know that as I'm losing weight, baby is still gaining and getting bigger.

Gestational Diabetes: My fasting numbers have been between 95-105 for the last two weeks. This isn't good. We're testing in the middle of the night right now to see if I have a big drop and then spike by morning time. If that's the case, I need to eat a midnight snack. If that's not the case... we'll have to explore medication to be taken at bed time. I'm doing ok with this. My after meal numbers are looking great though. If they're high... I know it's because I had too many carbs. But sometimes, I just need carbs.

Cravings: Peanut butter and celery. Hershey's miniatures: regular Hershey's, Crackle, and Mr. Goodbar. NOT dark chocolate. Oh, and soup.

Aversions: Nothing, really.

Baby Update: Baby's memory is starting to develop. I hope this means that she'll start to recognize her daddy's voice and hands and won't run away from him. She did GREAT at the OB appointment -- she let the Dr find her heart beat and stayed in one spot long enough for her to get a good listen. So proud of her!

DH Update: He keeps telling me how much he wants to meet her and hold her. He tells me he wants it even more than I do. I don't know about that... but I do know that it touches my heart and makes me cry thinking about what a great father he will be. I'm so freaking lucky.

Appointments: Saturday is the high-risk OB appt. We'll get an u/s and I'm under strict orders to make sure we talk about my headaches and not just my blood pressure/GD.

We've also gone to OB appointments every 2 weeks. So, we'll meet with the OB on Nov 15. Mostly to talk about the GD and to see if we need to do a medication at night.

Other news: We picked out a carseat we like - Graco Snugride - and our dream stroller - the Graco Modes. It's mega expensive, so we'll settle on a different stroller if necessary.

Also. It's snowing. That's stupid. We could get up to 6 inches. That's even more stupid.

Also, I hate that UPS/FedEx have their agreements with the Post Office - it's really inconvenient for me to pick up packages when they get delivered to the PO Box and not to my house from FedEx/UPS. Our post office is ONLY open from 8-noon on the weekdays or 7-8 on Saturday. Those hours just don't work for me most days!!! ugh.

Fingers crossed that the headaches are nothing out of the normal. Here in

Symptoms: Pretty darn pregnant feeling. Baby is head down and likes to lay on my bladder. So... lots of bathroom trips!

I can tell that space is getting limited. My intestines are so slow... time to start the metamucil again...

My nipples HURT. Especially outside on cold mornings.

Weight: I gained a 1/2 pound. Woot woot. Let's see if I can keep that 1/2 lb until Friday's appointment!

Gestational Diabetes: This is such a learning process. I finally realized that I CAN be more in control of my numbers. This week, I've tried to make a real effort at eating better... and I can tell it's helping. The bad part... I'm CRAVING all things sugar. Like, I try to eat a little bit in hopes to sate the craving, but it doesn't work... I just want it MORE.

Cravings: SUGAR! Chocolate, fruit snacks, gummy snacks, cinnamon rolls, dessert pizza.

And of course, peanut butter, celery, and hard boiled eggs.

Aversions: Chicken again. I thought I was over it and then we made a lovely white chicken chili soup thing, and the chunks of chicken were too big and sickened me.

Baby Update: We had our high-risk OB appt last Saturday. Baby girl is weighing in at 1 lb 11 oz. Her heart looks good -- as does her spine. She's head down -- and I'm pretty sure I know exactly when she turned.

This little girl wiggles a lot more now. And I'm starting to feel harder kicks and jabs. I LOVE IT!

DH Update: Baby girl might have been playing hard to get, but now she loves her daddy and will kick when he starts talking and will even keep kicking so he can feel it.

Brian is smitten. And it makes me fall even more in love with him.

School is going well for him -- he's been super stressed this week with preparing grammar lessons for his classes. But he's handling the stress really well. I try to help as much as I can, and I'm always trying to be super supportive to him.

Appointments: Friday, we meet w/ my OB to discuss what action to take for the GD.

Thankfully, I don't have to meet with the high-risk OB until January. And I'm hoping that since we have the go ahead for a natural delivery from the her, that my OB will let me stop seeing her.

Speaking of which: I'm good to try for a vaginal delivery!!! The high-risk OB is only concerned about my intracranial hypertension if I have a prolonged labor that doesn't progress at a normal pace. Woohoo! (other than that... I'm so over the high-risk OB... she doesn't have a very understanding bedside manner, and said some things a little too bluntly for my pregnant emotions.)

Other news: I'm the assistant director for our one-act play this year. We've had 2 performances... 2 more to go. I enjoy it, but man, it's tiring!

That's about it for this week!
