How many weeks pregnant?: 21 weeks (though pretty close to 22)
Weight gain?: Oh bother, I had gained hardly anything this whole pregnancy...until this week. It came all at once! But, I know the same exact thing happened with JJ.
Cravings?: Apple pie and meat. oh, and Pad Thai!
Food aversions?: Veggies are still very hard for me....but I am plugging through. Broccoli is still on the naughty list though.
How are you feeling?: Pretty good, I guess. This baby is for sure taking more of a toll on my body physically, though. Sciatic nerve problems are killing me this time.
Most embarrassing pregnancy moment thus far?: Oh, gee....an insident involving my husband getting out of the shower, my parents, skype, and total pregnancy brain:P I leave it at that and let your mind wonder!
Best pregnancy moment so far?: Seeing my baby girls head coming up on the screen (before her gender was checked) and knowing without a doubt that we had a little girl!
Baby's name?: Oh, she is named! Do I tell you....?
Boy or girl?: GIRL!
Wearing maternity clothes?: Uhm...yes...practically this whole time. In fact, I need a few more shirts...
Other notes: I think our little one has finally turned! This weekend I woke up to a totally different shaped belly and feet in my ribs. Up until now she was perfectly sideways, bumping both sides of my belly when she kicked or moved, and trying to break out of there every time she moved her arms! Now, a lot more pressure and a skinny/pointy belly......in the EXACT same position as JJ was in from 6 months on.
I've tried not to drown my conversation and facebook updates with my thoughts and fears concerning our darling little one. I understand that these things do not seem as important to the people that surround me as they do to Jon and I. This is not anyone's fault, it simply speaks of the hearts of her parents, wanting the world for her.
That being said, this blog has become my dumping spot for all feelings concerning our daughters health. I can not help that it consumes me at times...
Today we go in for a regular (22 week) appointment, our first since the news of the SUA, and are very much hoping and praying for good news on her growth.
If you think of us today, please pray. We could really use some good news!
