16 Week Appointment


We barely made it there on time (actually we were a few minues late). Jason and the girls stayed in car since we knew that they probably wouldn't an ultrasound. After checking in, I had to wait a few minutes. When I was taken back they complete the routine (sample, blood pressure, weight). When Dr. came in the room, he used the doppler to find the HB. He started pretty high on my belly. I didn't flip out since three days earlier we had our sneek peek gender determination ultrasound. Once he went a little lower he found him! He instantly said boy! (remember, we didn't get our u/s done at the OB's office). I asked for my NT blood work result (1 in 10,000) and they drew blood for the quad screen (no news yet, so I assume that's good news). Our next appointment is in 4 weeks (20 weeks). When we were pregnant with TT this was they same time we had our anatomy ultrasound. But, he said that he would want that two weeks later. At first I was like GRRRRR.... I have to wait 2 more weeks for another peek at little one. But, once I thought about it I was ok with it since we will probably only get one more peek at him around 30 weeks (when we pay for a 4d ultrasound). I think he did/recommended waiting until 22 weeks for the anatomy ultrasound mainly since we already knew gender.

It's A ....

We took half a personal day Friday (3.14.14), picked up the girls and came home. We relaxed for a little while and got the girls changed. On the way, we stopped for a snack. I had Jason get me a C.oke. It didn't taste that great. I had a few sips. 

We arrived at the spa a few minutes early, filled out paperwork and were asked to come back. When we got to the room. I told the tech our plan. We had brought a boy and girl outfit. Whichever gender it was, she would put that outfit in a gift bag with tissue paper along with the gender ultrasound. The other outfit was to be hidden in the bag we had them in. She agreed. The baby was adorable. It's HB was 146bpm (the lowest it had ever been). My fluid level was good. My placenta is posterior. We paid and were congratulated. It was extremely windy so I was concerned the tissue paper would fly out of the bag and our surprise would be ruined. We then headed to C.arrabra's down the road. Once we settled and ordered, it was time. Jason said he would record while I opened the bag. As soon as the girls saw the bag they wanted to help. So, they pulled out the tissue paper. I couldn't believe my eyes!

Friday night we stopped at a few places. Little Boy is going to be spoiled just like his sisters.
A few vacations ago we went to Indianapolis. While these we had these amazing sea salt caramels. Jason ordered me a box. 

Saturday, we hosted a small gender reveal party. After pizza, we had everyone gather in the living room. We had six bottles of silly string. We had everyone shake and then reveal at the same time. It made a mess, but clean-up was easy. Everyone loved it!

August Miracle Update

Just like last time, I am so hesitant to post much. I am afraid I am going to jinx things. I know, laugh out loud. Right?

It's so hard.

Things are going well. We are half way through one of the 4 week waits (the time between monthly appointments).

Today, we are 14w3d by my LMP, but 14w5 by most ultrasounds.

We didn't heard anything after my 1st OB appointment about my Pap and nothing after my 2nd OB appointment about NT results.... so, no news is good news. I will confirm our risk numbers at our 16 week appointment which is March 17th.

We are trying to decide if we would like to schedule an elective early gender determination scan at a local pregnancy spa. If so, we could do so as of March 13th. If not, we will find out gender around April 17th.

Early on:
bleeding, more boogers/bloody, sneezing, bloating, loved water, insomnia

Few weeks in:
bleeding, more boogers/blooding, sneezing, extreme bloating (started wearing belly bands and then maternity clothing around 8/9 weeks), mild nausea, some throwing up (not needed zofran as much as last time), insomnia, sciatica pain

no regular bleeding since a little after 8 weeks, one epsiode around 13 (believe from other cause), nausea (getting worse), have good and bad days/times of day, more and more zofran needed, need food constantly, water sounds terrible, headaches, currently have a cold also, sciatica pain

Church Mornings

Please don't judge. Mid-September, we started taking the girls to church. We had gotten 'settled' into our new home and knew we needed to get back. So, we decided to research a few local churches and try a few out and decide which was right for us. The one we have been going to is the one we went to the first weekend and was the only one we tried out. We loved it so much! We are becoming more and more involved and the girls are super excited to attend each weekend.
