Here I am. At the point of weekly visits to the OB. When on earth did this happen?! How did time fly by so quickly? I'm kind of in disbelief that in a few short weeks (or possibly sooner) I will be holding baby boy #2 in my arms!
So... let's see. What's going on with the pregnancy right now.
+Well... If it isn't completely obvious, I carry WAY out front with my pregnancies. It's like someone literally shoved a bowling ball into my stomach. Not comfortable, at all.
+My OB is telling me that technically I'm measuring right where I should be, but that she thinks this baby will be a little bigger than Bennett. Eeeek. Bennett was 8.3lb and it scares me to think about delivering a baby bigger than that. But... I will do it. I know I will.
+Weight gain: 25lbs and still packin' in on! I gained 40lbs with Bennett so I'm guessing I'll gain about that much this time, too.
+Had an u/s at my last appointment and looks like baby Fitz is head down and ready to rock.
+My blood pressure is right where it should be.
+Fitzies heart rate is right where it should be. He's a healthy boy... he moves like crazy in there. He doesn't have much room but he does not stop rolling around. Like ever.
+Just had the test for Group B Strep, and am waiting on results. I tested negative last time, so I'm sure the test will come back negative this time as well.
+A lot of people have been asking me if I'm dilated at all. Here's the answer: I have no idea if I'm dilated, nor will I have any idea until I actually go into labor. Me and my OB are very conservative when it comes to that stuff and absolutely DO NOT check my cervix unless there is a medical reason to do so. There are a LOT of reasons why I choose to go the "no checking" route... but I am not going to get into it at this very moment. Ha ha.
+Physically? I can feel my pelvis starting to rotate a little. It is starting to get very uncomfortable and painful at times to walk around. My back aches constantly, that's a given. Heartburn is in full swing most all of the time. I'm starting to notice some swelling in my face and ankles. I totally blew up like a balloon with Bennett, it was terrible. But I'm not eating nearly as much salt as I did when I was preggo with B, and I'm drinking a lot more water this time. So we'll see what happens!
+Sleep. Ha ha.
+We're still completely baffled as to what we are going to name this child. Ah well, we'll figure it out!
And that's all I got right now. Besides continuing to try to get a little more organized and put myself in the right place mentally, things are good! We're chugging right along.
And here is a pic from the other night. Hubs was trying to get a picture of just me (that doesn't include me snapping an iphone photo in the bathroom mirror!) but Bennett kept crashing the photo. But he's dang cute so it's okay :-)
