second trimester… and counting

pregnancy,second trimester 18 October 2008 | Comments Off

Not much in the way of updates, other than I am much bigger and far less graceful at 26 weeks now. According to my whacky size chart, baby boy foo is halfway between a box of facial tissue and a load of bread. 

I have been experiencing some new and exciting side effects of pregnancy:

  • Allergies
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Heartburn (plus acid reflux!)
  • Insomnia
  • High blood pressure

The latter I am going to see the doctor about on Monday just to make sure everything is okay.  Regardless of my growing complaints, I’m thankful they are safely treatable I am still very much enjoying my pregnancy. In early November, we have our birthing prep class and labor workshop.    Exciting!

It’s a BOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Our four-and-a-half-year-old cousin slowly tore open the envelope and showed everyone a BLUE ribbon; it was so dramatic! Ultrasound pictures and video to be posted when our new computer is setup, hopefully later this week.

Nineteen week update!  I feel the baby moving pretty much every day now.  The most prominently when I was 1) eating spicy salsa and 2) when I was in a room with really loud music.

Our ultrasound on Monday was amazing!  We got a good look at baby’s arms–complete with elbows, hands, and fingers.    Those little legs and feet have developed a lot since last time we peeked.  They were completely outstretched as if standing up!   And his or her lovely heartbeat is still beating strong.

We looked away while the technician checked for the sex, and baby cooperated so she got a good look. And then the results were sealed in an envelope for us to open on Sunday afternoon.  Surprisingly we haven’t been too tempted to open it up.  We’re afraid to watch the ultrasound video in case we accidently see something!

We’ll update again on Sunday…

fun and games

Tomorrow is our ultrasound appointment where we can find out the sex of the baby.  Since our family has a get-together planned this coming weekend, we decided to be clever about the results.  We’re going to ask the doctor to put a blue or pink ribbon in a sealed envelope that we won’t open until the family is together.  We’ll be posting the results here on Sunday afternoon.  Fun!
