Half way there (hopefully)! Typically this is the week we do a big ultrasound to check on your heart, lungs, brain and other organs to make sure everything is growing and developing they way it should. This is also the time when we are able to find out if you’re a girl or a boy. However, with the way insurance worked out, we’re waiting a couple of weeks so it is a little less expensive.
This week has been a little crazy and I forgot to take a belly picture. Mom and Dad are getting ready to go on a big trip to Hawaii. Mom has been busy getting everything wrapped up at work and everyone packed up. Overall, we’re very excited for the trip as we’ve both wanted to go to Hawaii for a long time. With that said, I’m pretty anxious in general. When we went on a trip to Colorado while I was pregnant with Lexi, I ended up in the hospital and we had to cut the trip short, so I’m a little worried something like that will happen again. I’m also worried about leaving Lexi for such a long period of time. I know she’ll be in great hands with Grandma and Auntie She-She but I’m worried about how much I’m going to miss her. Finally, I’m the most nervous about something happening to Daddy and I and leaving Lexi with no parents. It is a terrible and frightening thought but one that I just can’t escape. There have been many many prayers that everything goes smoothly.
Other than that, everything with you continues to move along without any thought. You and my belly continue to grow. I had gained 10 lbs last I weighed myself. You continue to move and jab around, but still no luck on feeling you from the outside or even seeing my belly move. I’m still very thirsty but in general have been feeling really great. Sleeping is going well. I usually start out on my stomach with a leg to the side for weight distribution so it isn’t all on the belly and usually end up on my side or back by morning.
I think that is it for now. Be good to your mama in Hawaii sweet babes.
