Week 19- The week I popped. I was super nervous because I was not gaining a single pound and I was eating so much I didn’t understand, but when I popped omg I was super excited!! This was also the week I felt you kick for the first time and I actually cried (I hope my husband does not see this because he *might* make fun of me)! Feeling her kick made me even more excited to meet her and spend time with her and I’m just here patiently waiting to meet my princess.
Week 20- Anatomy scan = stubborn baby = ugh.
Baby girl is SOO stubborn. Sonogram tech couldn’t measure all her parts and we sat in the room for over an hour, I even did jumping jacks and all those weird exercise-y things I never thought I would do just so she could move, but I got no luck. I was a little frustrated but I got super excited to see you and see you again in 2 weeks. I got to see your face and your feet and OMG her feet are so cute I can not stand it. I am obsessed with her feetttttt!!!!! Baby girls heartbeat is measuring at 133 as they say “a healthy heartbeat!” I got weighed today and I gained 6lbs (I weighed in at 134!) I was so happy to have gained 6 lbs because I thought I was not gaining a single pound even though I was eating so much. They told me baby weighs 12ounces which is basically 1 pound right? (I’m horrible at math) so yay! You’re growing and you’re super active even the sono tech. felt you kick! I love your kicks!
Week 22-24- Only 2 more weeks till the end of my second trimester!! Super scary to think we are almost done with this and in a few more weeks/months I will be a MOM. My life completely changed, my mindset changed, and i’m super excited yet super nervous to meet baby girl. At 22wks when we went back for the 2nd anatomy scan you weighed 1 pound 1 ounce which I found out at 23wks+5days when we went back to the doctor (prenatal visits). However, they told us that baby was breech. She stays in the “frank breech position” which basically means her feet are always by her face and so are her hands. It is freaking me out a little because she is always like that in all our doctors appointments but I have the confidence she will move because I am super scared to get a c-section. i just want to have an epidural-free birth (Yes I plan to have a natural unmedicated birth) (fun fact about melaine?! she HATES needles) You are such an active baby so I have no worries that you will not move esp because I will stand on my head if I have to if it will make you move! I’m super excited to meet baby Zoey already and just know you are one spoiled baby because you have so much stuff! Yesterday or two days ago i bought a diaper bag and her hospital bag is already packed (am i crazy?!)!
I’m also planning my own d-i-y- baby shower so this is super exciting and super personal for me because I really wanted to do that since the beginning and I love how everything is coming together and I can not wait to be able to share the special day with all my friends + family and eventually post about it on my blog!
