Pregnancy itself is going really well... no specific complaints about the pregnancy, just not feeling the greatest in general. Stiff and in pain... but trying to just work through it. Only 8 weeks to go before delivery! I'm so ready to not be pregnant anymore... and at this point I wouldn't mind never being pregnant again! We're 98% sure this is our last.
In the beginning I lost like 3 lbs... and it took me nearly 5 months to gain that back, plus I've only gained 2 additional lbs. So realy, I'm only 2 lbs over my pre-preggo weight I gained so much weight with Brinlee... 55 lbs to be exact! I swore I would not gain that much weight this time around, and so far so good! I'm already on my 2 week appointments, I started them about 3 weeks ago and I go back on Wednesday... I'll be 31 weeks at that time. My blood pressure has remained really well, usually 110/60, and the urine check they do every appointment has been good too. No major swelling like I had with Brinlee, some puffiness that keeps me from wearing my wedding rings a lot of the time. My ankles and feet are a bit puffy, but no pitting when you push on it... which is good.
I wonder how big this one will be! Brinlee was 7 lbs 15 oz and born the day after her due date (though I went into labor on her due date). This one is coming 9 days early (though 11 days early according to my dates LOL). I'm excited to see what she looks like! If she will have hair, what color eyes, etc.
Yes, I'm having another girl!!! We *finally* picked out a name... it took us forever! We've only had a first name picked out for a couple weeks, and I just finalized the middle name. But I've sworn to keep in a secret until delivery! Gotta have some surprise, right?!
Lets see some belly pics! I am so excited for you! Only 2 lbs??? I am sooo jealous! I gained like 50 with Becca, but I did have preclampsia (sp?) so like 30 as water weight... but it still really really sucked. You know it is BAD when your maternity clothes stop fitting! LMBO!
