24 Weeks today!

Things have seemed hectic the last few weeks, I don’t think I even updated post scan!!

Yesterday my little boy turned 3! it does seem ages ago now that I was holding him in my arms and now hes a crazy active 3 year old who runs around. He had the best weekend, a birthday party and a day out.

So it must be 4 weeks since my scan wowser, every time I’ve gone to sit down to write a post I’ve got distracted. All went well her measurements were all over the place big head, small arms and legs etc. I can’t imagine shes going to be a big baby. All that was picked up at the scan was a cyst in brain which is a soft marker but as nothing else was picked up we have been told they will probably just disappear before shes born.

Everything has been going well, I haven’t felt too bad, I had heaps of energy and was getting stuff done… we have even started to set up babies room but now post birthday weekend I’ve crashed and back to feeling flat.

I keep trying to plan ahead and have everything ready early this time considering our boy was born at 37 weeks she might arrive early too! My guess is she will arrive 11 days early and arrive on August 17 but we will see 🙂

Now its really sunk in that we are having a baby after the whole journey to get here its seemed like it would never happen but here I am 24 weeks pregnant. Hopefully everything continues to go well and I get through my work the next couple of months and have a little bit of rest time before she arrives (as much rest time as I can with a 3 year old!!)

17 weeks and the nerves are kicking in again!

17+2 weeks now!!! Yay!! Only 2 weeks till my 20 week scan and I’m starting to worry that something will be wrong. I really wish all  this worry didn’t happen after a miscarriage but it does and it’s hard to just get on and be positive! The last few weeks I’ve been pretty good but it’s hit me again. I’ve been too worried to make an announcement on Facebook but I think tonight I might finally do it. Pull the band aid off as hubby calls it. 

I had a gender scan the other week and bub want cooperating. Sitting on it’s bottom not moving, crossing legs the works, nothing would move it. I went back a few days later and this time success! She did make a comment that fluid levels looked good this time and bub was moving great so of course I now think did something not look right the other time?  Over analysing at its best!!  She did say she tells everyone to keep receipts in any clothing bought etc till the 20 week scan confirms gender. Ahh my brain over thinking is going to annoy me! 

In good news we are having a girl!!!! I’m over the moon! I always said I would be happy having a second boy but this is amazing and I’m pretty excited 🙂

13 1/2 weeks…2nd trimester!!


Been a busy week and haven’t updated! Last Thursday I had my 12 week scan and all was perfect!! Yay!

The next day I was packing up and we were off on our annual holiday away. Plenty of relaxing has been done and I haven’t been feeling too bad although I have a feeling as soon as we leave the nausea might be back! 

I’m still in shock that this is actually happening!! Come August we will have a new baby 🙂 exciting!! I’m still nervous about everything but holidays have helped calm me. 

Next week at 14 weeks we have my next ob appointment. It will probably be too early but it would be awesome if she could see the gender… Can’t wait to find out!! At the moment I think a girl and based on bub theory a few have said girl. Exciting to find out!
