As the Bump Grows, Pregnancy 6

Only one more week left and I’m in the home stretch! Sweet! And now for the belly shot: Clothes are starting to get tighter! I refuse to buy any more clothes though since there’s only 2 months left. I can push through, even though I’ll look a little frumpy, am I right?! Lol. Baby Size: About the size of Butternut Squash – 3lbs, 15in Gender: Girl Movement: She’s kicking and… Read more »

As the Bump Grows, Pregnancy 2

It’s Week 27, which means I’m almost done with the 6th month! Yay! And now for the belly shot: Even I have to admit I’m getting pretty big. True I haven’t gained as much as my previous pregnancies, yet, but still, I was bigger to begin with. Right now I look like how I did right before I gave birth to BG2, and I still have like 3 months to… Read more »

As the Bump Grows, Pregnancy 2

Week 26! Well, I finally got the blood results back and WE’RE IN THE CLEAR! WOOHOO! Back when I had my anatomy US last month, the doctor said they noticed a white spot on the baby’s heart, which was concerning because it’s one of many soft markers for Down’s Syndrome. Of course, that surprised me! She sent me in to get another, more in depth (Level 2) US a few… Read more »

As the Bump Grows, Pregnancy 6

Week 25 was pretty boring, in a good way though. Not much as changed from last week. I did notice that my feet weren’t as swollen as they’ve been lately, which was a surprise to me because usually once they start swelling, they stay that way. I’m still waiting on some blood test results before finally letting you all know what’s been going on. And now for the belly shot:… Read more »

As the Bump Grows, Pregnancy 4

Woohoo! I’m finally SIX months! I’m definitely enjoying the second trimester and all that comes with it. News on the baby is still pending since I just visited the doctor and has some blood drawn. Hopefully we’ll know the real answer soon and I can finally be at peace. And now for the belly shot: I think I’m shaping out pretty nicely. I do hate that I haven’t gotten rid… Read more »

As the Bump Grows: Week 23

As the Bump Grows, Pregnancy 6

Week 23 has brought with it some unsure news. Results from last week’s Level 2 ultrasound still didn’t give me any answers. From a medical professional standpoint, my risk is very low, but there’s always a chance something could be/go wrong with BG3. I’m hoping when I see my OB this week I can request a blood test that will give me more answers because I hate the “not knowing”… Read more »

As the Bump Grows, Pregnancy 3

We’re on to Week 22 of my pregnancy. I’m halfway through the 5th month and really enjoying being pregnant. This is definitely the golden month of pregnancy. I don’t have nearly as many symptoms, and those that I do, don’t bother me as much right now. My appetite is back in full force, although no cravings. I’m hoping to get some good news this coming week, so here’s hoping! And… Read more »

As the Bump Grows, Pregnancy 0

This fifth month has brought quite a few things with it, good and bad, but we’re hanging in there. It’s also been a little boring, increasing movements aside, but I’m not complaining. There is something that’s come up, but I’m not ready to talk about it yet until I know for sure, so I’ll just ask that you keep me and the Little One in your prayers and thoughts. And… Read more »

As the Bump Grows, Pregnancy 8

Happy 5 months to me and baby! We’re finally at the halfway mark and I couldn’t be happier for it. I think this month in pregnancy is usually my favorite because I’m well into the second trimester, no really annoying symptoms, feeling the baby kick all the time, and my belly is a nice size. There haven’t been any episodes of “elephant feet” yet, but there have been a couple… Read more »
