How far along? 17 weeks
Maternity clothes? This is a maternity dress! I am on the hunt for some nice maternity shorts (thanks for all of the facebook help, I will be hunting at Ross very soon!)
Best moment this week: Realizing that it has been almost two weeks that I have had any bleeding!
Sleep: Needing it, loving it, and only interrupted by bathroom visits.
Miss anything? Zumba! I miss shaking, shimmying, and dancing around. While cleaning up the house the other day (while listening to very loud music) I started dancing and Jackson reminded me, “Mom, that probably isn’t good for the baby.” He is always checking in on how I am feeling and remembers me and the baby in every single prayer. He is a sweetheart.
Movement: Every day! The baby is more active at night or after I’ve eaten something surgery.
Food cravings: Olive Garden pretty much always, very cliche but loving the pickles, popsicles and BBQ foods!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not much! Which is pretty much a miracle.
Have you started to show yet: Yes! The belly definitely popped sooner the third time around!
Gender: We will find out next week! We think it is a boy but are just hoping for a healthy baby!
Concerns: I am still debating whether or not I want to do an epidural or go for a natural childbirth again. My epidural didn’t work well with Jackson’s delivery and I wasn’t prepared to go natural with Jayne but did anyway. Which is better? A labor with an epidural that actually works? Or preparing in all the right ways for a natural birth?
Labor signs: No.
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy! Feeling so blessed that this baby is doing well. I feel like no matter what it’s gender it deserves a STRONG name! This baby is a fighter.
Looking forward to: Next week’s appointment. Hoping to see that everything is measuring well and that the placenta looks like it is in good shape. I have heard from other Mom’s who have had a placental tear that their babies come earlier…I just hope that I can carry full term. My doctor seems to not be worried about it, so I am hoping the ultrasound gives us peace of mind.
