So here we are, 19 weeks in! Almost half way! WOOT WOOT
You know what that means…… yep.. you have to keep reading to find out the sex of the baby. #Sorry #notSorry
This pregnancy has been, by far, one of the hardest things I have done yet.
Seriously. Growing a baby is hard enough on the body, the amount of changes you go through in under a year, is nothing short of a miracle, but also a pain in the ASS.
Some nights, I wake up ( HAHAHA some nights. let me rephrase that)
On the occasional night, after I have woken up every hour to walk into walls, and somehow make my way to the bathroom, to pee for the 9th time, and somehow … land on the toilet….. other nights feeling like i could puke. For 0 reason. The wave of ” omg” sweeps over my insides. Then it leaves. Like it never happened. It’s the strangest thing.
My appetite came back. So that is a huge bonus. No huge cravings. I still love a good apple thou, almost daily. And twix bars. Yea those are my friends right now.
Timmies came out with a vanilla chia drink… it was SOO GOOD. Then they took it away as fast as it came out. So im a little peeved over that. I have not been drinking tea since I had transfer. Which is insane for me. The odd sip here and there.. hoping my desire comes flooding back.. but nope. I drank a tea the other day, so maybe …. French vanilla goes down ok thou. And water. OMG water.Give me all the water. I must drink double my weight in oz in water a day. COLD- ICE -WATER. mmmmmmmmmm……
Anyways, What is new.
Well we are down to less than a month that my lil surro family visits! So I am over the moon about that. And I am planning on taking a trip to France for the very first time ever! So that’s just a weeeee bit exciting too!
At 16 weeks I was still feeling crappy. My skin is so dry and breaking out like im 13 again. It is terrible. ( it actually is STILL not great.) My hair is just dull and flat, I have no life.
That second trimester glow is the furthest thing from happening right now. Brutal. And don’t even get me started on shitting. Legit. I can. not. poop. Over share? don’t care.
I have drank prune juice, mixed crap in my drinks, watched my fiber intake, no movey-movey. Guys… i ate a plate of veggies and vomited HARD. It is like my food had nowhere to go, but out. BRUTAL.
What? Sometimes I am short on ideas. . . .
Anyways, CFC sends out these bellytunes. So the Dad’s – to-be loaded up some music, and I just sometimes sit and drink a hot beverage and let baby listen to some tunes. I mean… I dunno if baby likes it, but it’s another language some of it , so I just wish baby bean well in enjoying it. Baby hears my music and voice all day .. lol
Then comes the time I try to take off the buds off my belly….
That is some sticky ass shit! layer of belly skin gone…. BYEEEEE
So here we are. 19 weeks. I dribble all day long. My pelvic floor was on point after Baby M was born… I was working out daily, things were T I G H T. But now? hahahahah.. hard nope. Sneeze = tinkle . Cough = tinkle. Get up = tinkle. I just basically tinkle all day long. Its now what I do. I have come to terms with it.
So anyways, Ultra sound day was yesterday.
1 whole hour later. FML. Longest ultra sound I have ever had.
It was the ” have to measure every organ ” ultrasound.
Good news, The tech can not tell you everything , but I have noticed they are getting more vocal. So hey, baby has 2 eye holes, and stomach, and i seen legs, and feet, and arms and hands, and a head, and nose and lips oooo and even a kidney i think… Good stuff.
I will know the details at my midwife apt in 2 weeks.
So what is the first thing the tech says?
” do you wanna know the GENDER of the baby? “
Me. pause. “Nope. I’d love to know the sex thou! “
Yup. I am that annoying person. #sorryNotSorry
So. This ultrasound of mine. This baby was so active, I was laying on my back, my side, my other side, Baby was flipping all over… Just did not wanna give up measurements.
Longest ultrasound ever.
I even emptied my bladder to try to move baby. This baby was not only closed legged… but also CROSSED. Baby was not about to give up the sex. Privacy i guess… But the way this pregnancy has been, I kinda snickers and was like ” this is almost typical ” Almost expected…. Why would this go as planned. lol Baby is DRAMA. lol
I am re-naming baby.
Baby Drama Bean. or Bean-Drama.
This baby was SO stubborn , the tech legit almost gave up when …
” OMG” …. there. For 1 SECOND the legs opened and closed again. It happened THAT fast.
Baby was like .. ” FINE. ” Boop. “Thats all you get” MUHAHAHAHAHAHH
So , in reality we *think* we know the sex of the baby. But … ultrasound, can not be 100% with a 1 second glimpse. Ugh. Baby. I wish your dad’s to be all the luck in the world. You are really setting the tone here. lol
So now without any more wait….
Baby had 3 lines between her legs! I guess that mean’s….
So a little princess drama bean is baking in my belly.
Peeps, I legit thought … a Penis was growing in my belly. This pregnancy has been a jerk. I’m like … My own son was a hard ass pregnancy… this has GOT to be another boy. LOL
So. Dad’s are excited. Of course they are! It’s a baby! Spreading the news far and wide. ❤
So that is were were are at in the journey. I am hoping as time goes on, I feel that glow. But for now, I would like to just get some solid sleep.
