Time to play catch up again!
I will say this- this weather has been AH-MAZING today. Blue skies, bit of a breeze, and I think it got to about 80 degrees but didn’t feel like it. I had an interesting night to say the least. Seems when I can’t go to the restroom (TMI) then it causes me sleeping problems and nerve pain in my left leg, but also may be due to the way the baby is laying. We went to bed at 1AM and I woke up at 3AM and had to pee. I tried to lay back down but felt hungry and couldn’t get comfortable. Back up again to sip juice and sit on the couch. Brad woke up and then saw that I wasn’t back to bed so he got up to check on me lol. We sat together a few minutes then went back to bed. I tried to sleep but just stirred around and doze off/on. I woke up around 5 or 6 with this nerve pain my leg so I flipped sides and still wasn’t that comfy. Ugh. I have a feeling as I get further along I’m gonna have more of these nights.
SO- REWIND! This last Tuesday (4th) was our big ultrasound day!!!! Sucky thing is that this radiology ultrasound is where they won’t give you any info cause they aren’t a doctor.. BOOO. Katie missed school to go with us! It was a beautiful day and I remember sitting in the waiting room looking out the big windows at the beautiful flowers they have planted outside and there were so many butterflies on those flowers!!! Awesome. We got called back and the ultrasound tech was really nice. We got started and she asked If we knew what it might be- boy or girl wise. I told her we had an earlier ultrasound and they said potentially a boy. She put the wand on my belly and got the underneath the baby view and …. IT’S A BOY!!!! Sure enough, the other doc and nurse were right at 12w3d. We saw his boy bits first thing, Lol. She did all the measurements and baby boy would not be still lol so she had me go empty my bladder (thank goodness!) to see if that could help haha. We got a bunch of ultrasound pics on a disc and then we were done! Thankfully, I got an email the next day from my OB that said everything is normal!!!!!!!!! <3 After the big ultrasound I wanted to buy something BOY-related so we stopped by Babies R US and bought HIM a cute little onesie that says “Little Brother” and then a long sleeve footed suit that has spaceships on it! Decided to stop by Wal-Mart on the way home since I needed more chocolate ice cream, lol. Picked up tiny babe a small bottle and little pacifiers. <3 I have been feeling random pokes and kicks! I smile and giggle/laugh every time. <3 Well, Mom hasn’t been doing well or feeling good this weekend so send some prayers her way. Guess what tomorrow makes?! I’ll be 20 weeks pregnant! Woot, half-way! Loving my round little baby bump. Guess I’ll go get Katie ready for bed then might watch a little of this next Presidential Debate and eat chocolate ice cream, haha. Oh, and just a side note- I have felt really good today, which equals AWESOME. Have a great week!
