19 weeks

18 weeks (since I didn't do a post for that week)

Pregnancy Highlights

How Far Along: 19 weeks (still a week behind but will be catching up this week)

Total Weight Gain/Loss: 1 lb!

Best Moment this week: Getting to see baby H for our u/s! We were able to see him for while but he was laying in an odd position so we could not get the second confirmation that he is a "he!" The ultrasound tech was not able to get a good view of his spine and profile either, so we will be having another u/s on the 18th!

Gender: BOY

Movement: Kicks mostly at night whenever I first lay down - Curtis got to feel the baby kick strong for the first time during this week!

Food Craving: No cravings but I do know that I still hate seafood.

What I miss: Not having to use the restroom every 30 mins or less.

Sleep: Changes from night to night. I typically have to get up at least once to use the bathroom.

What I am looking forward to: Feeling him kick more!

Belly Button: Fat. Ugh.

Symptoms: Still a little weak at times but mostly the only worry some symptom that I have had is my heart will flutter more often than it ever has. As I last updated in my weekly post, where I posted that I had seen a cardiologist that heard "something" within my neck although the ultrasound was fine. I wore a 24 hour heart monitor and who would of thought that my heart did not flutter one time. It was quite funny to me - but then again I did not want anyone to think I was lying. Whenever I seen the cardiologist again she heard it for herself and did state that I do have a murmur. But as well all know, there is nothing you can do for those annoying things.
She did tell me that I could wear another heart monitor for up to a month, but I opted out unless something changes!

This is a picture of me before I left the Doctors office highly embarrassed that I would be leaving from there looking like that. I completely forgot that I was having this monitor put on whenever I was getting ready that was apparently.
I also started taking progesterone shots weekly at 19 weeks to help keep me from going into preterm labor again. With CB I went on bed rest at 27 weeks and still had her at 34, so we are trying to eliminate all possibilities of that! If you have ever had these shots, please let me know your thoughts on them besides the obvious fact they make your hip bone super sore!

I took the progesterone shots for months with BG. Besides the obvious soreness in my back, I had zero issues with them. Are you able to do them? Or does C have to do them for you?

You are too cute!

I'm glad your heart checked out okay. I had to wear the 30 day event monitor and it wasn't fun at all! :)

Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
