I had my prenatal appt this week! It was actually at 25w 6d. I weighed 137, which is 17lbs gained so far during pregnancy. Baby’s heartbeat was around 134. I’m ‘measuring’ consistently bigger than my weeks. Like I’m measuring closer to 30 weeks. My midwife said it feels like I have a lot of fluid but I had just the right amount at my 21w6d appt for my ultrasound so who knows. I feel big though. I feel heavy. I didn’t feel this way with Jaidan until the very end. I was about 4 years younger too… lol. I was instructed to eat better and exercise more. “Carbs & sugar are not your friend” came directly out of her mouth. <sigh> We do eat good, but there’s ALWAYS room for improvement so that’s what we’re working on. And we are making it a point to go walking again. It was really hard to go walking when it gets dark so early but I really hate excuses so I’m making it a point to go walking again too. Time change is coming up anyway so that will be in my favor too. No more excuses! 🙂 Oh! And I start going every 2 weeks now. I thought that was kind of early but since my appts are the day before I turn another week she counts me as being 28 weeks next appt. Anyway… every 2 weeks now. AND I’m getting my rhogam shot at my next appt. I’m rh- and for some reason NOBODY knows what Jared is. All the surgeries and heart stuff and nobody knows. What? Weird. Ohh and I almost forgot! Baby is head down now. At my ultrasound he was transverse & for the past couple weeks I know he’s been head down because I can feel his hiccups. 🙂
We sold our cloth diapers that we used with Jaidan. We had the bumGenius 3.0 one size and LOVED them. We used them from 7 months until he poop trained at 17 months, pee trained at 23 months and then night trained right at 30 months. Geez, I sound like he’s a dog. We paid about $300-$350 for our 24 diaper stash and sold them on Craigslist for $140. Actually we only sold 23… not quite sure where the other one is, and maybe don’t want to know. LOL. So anyway, we got good use out of them for the price I feel like. We are ‘upgrading’ to snaps instead of velcro but this time we are mostly buying used. I wanted to try some different ones out and get some cute prints since the first time we just had basic colors and all one kind. We got these cute lil Joey’s from my friend Laura for $8 each. They are newborn size so he will only be able to wear them a couple months but we can resell them when he outgrows them.
I will end the update with the belly picture… I love this kids enthusiasm!! 🙂
and for fun, my belly picture at 25 weeks with Jaidan
