19 weeks

 

How far along? 19w2d (or 20w2d based on my last 3 ultrasounds)

Total weight gain:  +2lbs according to my home scale. +4lbs according to the scale and the clinic and +.5kg according to my MFMs scale.

Maternity clothes?  Still yes.  Although Craig was teasing me recently about looking as pregnant as our 7 month friend, so I’ve started wearing a lot of my non-maternity pants in protest.  Some of the ones that were looser can still be done up, so I guess I don’t really need to be in maternity ones as often as I am.

Sleep: Still good.  Falling asleep is always my biggest problem. I do a lot of my thinking at night, about Griffin and this sweet little one.

Best moment this week: Seeing him again on the ultrasound is always a great part of my week.  It’s probably because of the loss, but I always get apprehensive at every appointment that their going to suddenly find that his heart has stopped beating. :(  But we got the best news possible that medically this is looking to be a perfect pregnancy so all of the extra steps we are taking are more precautions than necessary stopgaps. 

Movement: Still lots of reassuring wiggles!  If they hadn’t have told me an I have an anterior placenta this time around, I would have had NO IDEA based on how often I can feel his kicks from the outside.  Hopefully Craig catches one soon!

Gender: Boy!

Labor Signs: None.  But I have noticed some braxton hicks lately when I’ve been bent over and stand up quickly (such as moving laundry from the washer to dryer).  Not painful, just annoying.  If it’s anything like my pregnancy with Griffin, they’ll go away around 30 weeks, with no contractions to be seen until I go into real labour.

Belly Button in or out? In.

What I miss:  Is it sad that it’s still wine?  And sleeping on my tummy.

Weekly Wisdom:  Smoothies and kombucha can do amazing things if you’re constipated.  Just saying.  Also, I have baby SCOBYs coming out of my ears, so please let me know if you’d like to start brewing your own!

Milestones: Half way!  Since it’s likely I’ll be going early since they want to gently induce me before 40 weeks, I can officially say I am half way now.  And I can also officially say that I am ready for this baby to be here.  I am really looking forward to growing this baby and feeling more and more kicks, but truthfully it feels like I am 9 months overdue at this point.

Big Sister:  Still really excited to have a baby in our house and teach it all of the things she is mastering.  Although we’ve also reached the point where she will say “I’m not being a sister!” or “I DON’T have two brothers!” if she’s grumpy mad for some reason or another.  C’est la vie.

Pregnancy After Loss:  I did the math and in a few days we will reach the point that Griffin has been gone from our arms for longer than we ever had him.  And on that same day I’ll be 20 weeks pregnant with our new blessing.  I’ll post more about this the day of because it is a LOT of emotions to unpack.

Prayer Requests: Baby looked really healthy yesterday, so just pray for continued good health and steady growth at our scans.  His placenta had moved up a bit (to .8cm away) so there is hope that it will keep moving the 2cm away that is needed for me to deliver him the good old fashioned way.  Pray it moves!  And doesn’t give us any trouble in the mean time.
