So when I found out we were expecting again I found all these cute things in pinterest that I thought would be fun to track the progression of this pregnancy. Yeah, I am totally not that creative and just did not really ever decide I wanted to take the time to do it...so although the two below are cute, I documented a little different...with Selfies...and most of them are in my bathroom or bedroom with a disaster behind them...maybe by the next one I will be ready to be more creative, or I might just be too tired with two kiddos to even care
I took a pregnancy test around the third week of August and it came back negative; part of me was sad and part of me was ok with it because my child was not even one yet...so then the next week I took another test and it came back positive. All I could do was cry, both tears of joy and tears of o my heck, how am I going to do this. I am not the type of person that is readily willing to then go tell the world. I did not even want to tell my husband. I decided I would take a picture of the test and then a picture of the test and a picture of me and I would just leave it be for the time being. I forgot to delete the picture of my phone, I had planned on emailing it to myself and then making sure they were erased...but I did not do that and I went over to my parents house and my sister was looking through some pictures of Teddy and came across the pregnancy test. I was actually happy that she knew now and she has always been supportive. So now that she knew I also had to decided how to tell my husband.
|First pictures...we had just come back from taking a walk|
I am obsessed with taking pictures though, most of the time if I do not like it I can delete it, which is so nice with this digital age...so this is more for me to have a track of everything...
12 and 14 Weeks-Hello Second Trimester!!!
16 and 18 Weeks
20 and 22 Weeks
|26 Weeks-I definitely think I gained more weight in my backside then the front for the first half of the pregnancy but she started to come and go around this time|
Goodbye Second Trimester:
|28 Weeks-up until this point my little lady was ridding my back like crazy...around 28 weeks she started to make her appearance known in my belly!!!|
30 Weeks- baby started getting very active around this time. I would lie down and love feeling her squirming all around.
32 Weeks-well hello there!!!
So yesterday I went out to eat with a friend and decided I would go shopping after...I just hit up a few stores but really did not buy anything, although I could have...I think all I got was a sweater and some pajamas for Teddy...I always need to get him something too!!! So They had these reserved parking for expectant mothers parking spaces at this shopping plaza...it was so nice...I have decided that these little signs should be more places...especially at the Hospital...haha...I went to my 34 week appointment today and it was scheduled at the hospital. The doctor has an office inside the hospital...so I got there and there was NO parking...and they were doing construction which made it hard to get in and out. I found some open spaces but there was a big STOP sign on a barricade and it said for valet only...bummer...so I parked in another section and had to practically speed walk because I was running late. I have to remember that with a toddler, the early appointments are hard. I had a friend from church watch Teddy and that was so nice, I have a hard time asking people to watch him because he is at the crazy age where he has to be watched every second, but she said it was ok...so I walked up to the front and the valet said, FREE...haha, I had no idea...I would not have been able to wait in the long line of cars and make it to the appointment, but I will remember that. It took a long time at the office today, they had something come up and I just waited a while...I had brought a fill in puzzle to do and it ended up being very uneventful. Her heartbeat looked good and although I can feel and see swelling, not too many others including the doctor can...its there but not as bad as before. Part of me wants the swelling so I can get her here earlier but then again part of me will be fine with her baking until she is ready. The only thing that bothered me last time was the carpel tunnel in my hands, I can deal with the swelling but I cannot deal with that...so I hope it stays away...
Dr. Appointment at 34.5 weeks-this is the first selfie that is not really in my bathroom; its still a bathroom mirror but does not have my messy room behind me...Cant believe that I could meet my little lady in 5 or less weeks...it seems like an eternity but it will be here before I know it...and I have tons that I need to get done too...I also need to mentally prepare to be a mother of two...It will be an adventure!!!
