I know it’s been a few weeks since I last updated, but I’ve been busy. And sick. Not from the baby though. Well, not at first.
I had a sinus infection. Got over it. Then morning sickness wanted to take a bite, and I’ve not felt well. Add in a cranky toddler who is cutting a 2nd molar, fighting with allergies for all 3 family members and dealing with new kittens…I’ve been busy!
Here’s the update though:
13 weeks TODAY!
Heart rate was 160 at my last appointment (March 23rd, 2012).
I’ve lost a few pounds, not meaning to.
I feel like I’m bigger on some days. Today not so much, the other day VERY much pregnant feeling!
I can feel the baby move, swish and kick. Not all the time, but usually 1 or 2 times a day I feel the little bugger moving around in there
Husband is jealous of the last statement, BTW! I can’t wait for him to feel it move either.
Everyone says it’s a girl! Mainly because of the ‘higher heart rate’ but I’ve squashed that Old Wives Tale. DS’s was high too and a TON of other Mommies have vouched that the rumor was wrong for them. We shall see in May!
By my next appointment in April, I should have approval for my progesterone shots that I will be taking weekly for 20 weeks straight! I should also have approval for my 20 weeks anatomy scan/ultrasound at Ft. Bragg. My insurance does not cover ANY ultrasounds or routine screenings so I’ve got to drive 2-3 hours to the nearest Army post and get it done there for FREE!
Also thinking about getting a 3D/4D ultrasound done eventually at my doctors office, just so I can see the baby again and make sure the gender is what the tech says it is. I have to pay for that, but I’ll get what I can get!
I think that is about it. Not much else to report. I promise to update more often. Till then…goodbye!
