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 🙂

11 weeks!!!

I can’t believe I’m writing that I’m 11 weeks today!!

2 weeks ago I had a little bit of red and brown spotting so I went to ob. She did a scan and all was perfect! It was a relief as it was pretty much the same point 9+1 that I found out about my mmc the other time. 

Last week was horrible from Sunday to Thursday I was feeling pretty sick, didn’t throw up luckily but still was rather draining. 

In 10 days it’s nuchal scan time, I can’t believe it’s almost here. Hopefully all is perfect and then I can relax. The following week we are away on holidays. We are off to our favourite beach Holiday location, it’s where hubby proposed so it’s pretty special place for us. 

Last year I was still going through my blighted ovum miscarriage at the time we were there, I was on antibiotics too so it was pretty bad holiday on my front. I wasn’t allowed to drink until the last day (who doesn’t need a drink when dealing with a miscarriage!!), I wasn’t allowed to swim so I just had to watch hubby and my son having a great time. I did however make some good sand castles! 

I’m really hoping this time it’s a perfect holiday. After our holiday we have our next ob appointment, hopefully after that all is good and we can announce 🙂 I do have a good feeling about it all but I’m scared to allow myself to get too excited.

Hopefully the next week goes fast and it’s NT scan day before I know it!
