Week 21, An Update

Well, I had another check-up today. That means a weigh-in:

I weighed in at 177.1 pounds today. I'm up 3.8 pounds from my last appointment 6 weeks ago. I'm still technically below the "recommended" weight gain for my BMI, but the doctor is not worried, so I'm good.

Needless to say, I feel AWESOME. :]

I also passed my early screening glucose test, which is amazing news. I still have to take the regular sugar test in about 6 weeks or so, but the doctor said my chances of actually having G.D. are much lower since I passed this first test.

We got to hear Jasper's heartbeat today. He's measuring at a stead and strong 144 beats per minute, which is awesome.

When we had the ultrasound two weeks ago, he was just wiggling around to his tiny heart's content. 9 times out of 10 when I feel him kicking, he's attacking my bladder. He a very active little guy.

My next appointment is at the end of March. I can't wait. :]
Jasper Gregory Bohman at 19 weeks. Creepy, huh?

20 Day Pregnancy Challenge: Days 6-12

  • Day Six: Baby’s first picture. A picture of your first ultrasound.
L.B. at 10 weeks, 2 days.
  • Day Seven: Do you have a birthing plan?
Not at the moment. This is something that Husband and I are going to talk about when he comes home. I'll be about 6-7 months along by then, and much closer to actually needing one.

I had one with Bear, but that all went out the window. :/
  • Day Eight: What is your biggest food craving?
Anything fruity and sweet. But not, like, cookies, or something. I like fruit flavored candy. And cereals. I just have the biggest sweet tooth with this pregnancy.

  • Day Nine: What sex did/do you hope for?
We want a girl, but honestly we wouldn't mind if we were having another boy. But we really want a girl. :]
  • Day Ten: A picture of your baby bump and how you feel about how you look. 
17 weeks, 4 days. 2-1-12
 I feel pretty dang good about how I look. Granted, I wasn't small before I was pregnant, but I don't think I look too horrible. :]
  • Day Eleven: The baby shower: What do you plan for? Hope for?
Honestly? I'm not even expecting one. :/

  • Day Twelve: How did you tell your parents the news? The baby’s dad’s parents?
A phone call. Haha. That was pretty much it. Well, we sent a picture of the pregnancy test with a caption saying "Estimated Due Date: July 2012" but we still called them. :]

Guess What!

As of January 23, 2012, I can feel teeny, tiny baby flutters! And at only 16 weeks!

And, yes, I do know that they are flutters, and not tummy rumbles. The difference in the feelings is insane.


I waited until now to post this, so I could give Husband a chance to know first.

20 Day Pregnancy Challenge: Day 5

Day Five: What trimester are you in, and how do you feel?

I'm in the second trimester. I honestly feel like crap.

I still wake up and need to run to the bathroom. I'm nauseous throughout the day. Food holds no appeal for me. I get light headed, my back hurts and I am constantly tired, even though I can't sleep. I'm an emotional wreck, and my mood swings are intense.

Awesome. :/

20 Day Pregnancy Challenge: Day 4

Day Four: How did you find out you were expecting?

Well...I was late. Which wasn't unusual for me, since things had been all out of whack since my surgery.

But things were definitely different this time around. I felt different. So Husband and I got a pregnancy test, I took it, and BAM! Pregnant!
Positive test, taken on 11-11-11.

20 Day Pregnancy Challenge: Day 3

Day Three: Do you know the day you conceived?

I'm assuming either on or right around October 15, 2011. It fits with the day of my last...well, ya know...and it's right on track with how developed the baby is in the ultrasound.
Baby bump! 16 weeks, 5 days.
Prolly a little too much TMI, but I just answer the questions. :]
