Is it weird that i’m excited that Amelia will have hair?
The ultrasound tech was doing measurements and whatnot last week, and mentioned “it looks like she has hair.” HOW EXCITING!
She can wear cute headbands and hairclippies. :’)
She has grown so much!!
Had my ultrasound today! Amelia is growing and weighs 4lbs 11oz! We were finally able to get a front view of her face, with no hands in the way! :)
Also, my fluid was at an 11, which is awesome!! Now if Amelia would just turn for mommy.
I also mentioned to my nurse about the cramping I’ve been having (which kind of feels like a menstrual cramp, but a little more intense) so they had my doctor check me again, just to make sure. I’m still 2cm dialated, but my doctor said I’ve lost my mucus plug. How long it’s been gone,I’m not sure. But he said this was the real deal. 8cm to go!
I’m reading that labor can start anywhere from 2-3 weeks after losing your mucus plug, sometimes even sooner. How long did you other mommies have to wait?
I guess this means I should go ahead and get a hospital bag put together, huh? :)
I went from getting a non-stress test done this morning, to finding out that I am having contractions (that I was not aware I was having) to seeing my doctor and finding out that I am 2cm dialated (I will be 33 weeks tomorrow) and now I am being put on bed rest.
It’s amazing to me that all this happened in just 4 days. I had a NST done on Thursday, and things were okay and normal.
Kinda freaking out, but I know things will be okay. I got a steroid shot to help with lung development, just incase she would decide to come early. Second shot tomorrow and ultrasound. NST again on Thursday, and then another check up next Monday.
Whew. At least no more stress and aches from work! :)
Had my doctor’s appointment and fluid check this morning.
Appointment went well. Fluid check is about the same as last week. i was at 9.64 last week, and was at 9.91 this morning. I was told as long as im above 8, that is good, but its still not enough.
As of right now, Amelia is still breech. Her head is on the right side of my belly, while her feet are at the left. If my fluid stays where it is right now, she may not be able to turn. :( This makes me so sad. I just dont know what else to do. I just keep drinking water… all day. I guess we will see how it is next week.
I start non-stress tests on monday. And i go twice a week. Thats going to be so many doctor visits a week! But thats okay. I enjoy going and getting check ups on Amelia.
Im nervous that due to all this.. low fluid, gestational diabetes, her being breech, will cause her to have to come earlier than my due date. And i would love to see her before her due date, but i have so much i need to get done before she gets here. So if she could just hold off, that would give mommy time to get things together.
We still havent set up anything for the nursery, but i would like to wait until AFTER the baby showers to set things up, that way we know what we have and what we need. But my last shower is May 26th.. and by then i will be 36 weeks…and i just hope she at least stays in there for 38. Then she’s more than welcome to come into the world. :)
31weeks & 2days <3
Well, my fluids are definitely better than what they were at my last appointment a month ago, but it’s still leaning towards the low side. I have been drinking so much more water, but i guess now im going to cut out every other drink ive been drinking and ONLY drink water. I just want baby to be protected! :( I am told NO caffeine. Which, other than water and milk, all ive really been drinking is diet root beer (diet because of my gestational diabetes) and it has no caffeine… so maybe my issue is i need to drink MORE water. But, im going to stop drinking root beer too. Just to be safe. I go back on Tuesday for another check up.
On a plus side, my doctor says ive been doing great and have an amazing attitude compared to most patients. Hehe. That makes me happy. I talked to him about my maternity leave… and it was as expected. Im going to keep working until either something comes up that prevents me to continue, or until my body just tells me to stop. Id say i will work til at least mid June, and only take 8 weeks off for maternity leave.
Baby is starting to practice breathing, which was cool to see. She had her hands and feet up by her face, so it was kinda hard for us to get a good picture (as usual, lol. She must be camera shy) but when we did see her, her little mouth was open. She definitely has a chubby, flat nose like her mommy. And shes just been kicking away all morning. :) Oh, and she weights 3lbs 2oz! Getting big!
Wish me luck for my check up on Tuesday and hope my fluids are a little higher, and not lower.
So, will someone send me cute asian baby things? Like… adorable outfits, toys, accessories, blankets, ect? :) I hope my Korean grandma and aunts send me things! Hehe. Omg, asian countries have the cutest kids things! Yes? :3
Little Miss Amelia will be a 1/4 korean. :P Hehe. How adorable would she be if she looked more korean than i do? I would be so jealous. <3
I cant wait until Thursday! Ultrasound and Dr. Appointment. So anxiously excited to see how we are doing!
An adorable picture frame we got from baby’s Aunt Kristy :)
This is baby Panda at 25 weeks :) We had confirmation (after 9 weeks and 2 ultrasounds) that she was definitely a SHE. And we finally settled on a name for her…
Yesterday we had a 4D ultrasound done :) Of course baby had it’s legs crossed, so we weren’t able to confirm if baby was a girl, like they said she may be when I had my 16 weeks ultrasound done, but it was so nice to be able to see and hear baby’s heartbeat. It never gets old.
During the ultrasound, we could see the baby waving it’s arms and hands around, and it finally sunk in that there is a little baby moving around inside me! Unfortunately, I have not felt baby move yet… It should happen soon! Im 20 weeks and 3 days :) But I’m not sure what I’m supposed to be feeling for… So it might have happened and I just don’t know! But I cannot wait for the day that I feel him/her move. <3
This whole “we are going to have a baby” thing is definitely starting to feel real, and it makes me more and more excited everyday. I wasn’t sure where my life was starting to head… Or if it was even heading in the right direction. But I feel so happy now. We are starting a family, and what could be more special than that? :3
Only 4 more months. It seems so close, yet so far away!
