We are officially past the halfway point in the pregnancy. It feels like it’s flying by! At the same time, November also feels eons away. It’s a weird thing! Our anatomy scan went well. Baby boy is doing great and it was so lovely to see him kicking and rolling around!
Hi! I’m here again to write about this pregnancy. A few new updates: I’m tired, I have a dating ultrasound scheduled, and I’m in the process of setting up prenatal care.
I’ve also done that obsessive early pregnancy thing where I take a cheap pregnancy test each morning just to see that second line. I think it still shocks me to see the second line because I have taken a lot of pregnancy tests since we started trying in August 2020 and every. single. one. was negative. I sometimes just pass by the test during the day and look at it and smile. I love this baby so much!
I’m feeling decent so far, I’ve had some night sweats (I forgot how intense those were!), my chest is starting to feel tender, and I have taken some hardcore naps + gone to bed early. No food aversions or sickness at this point! I remember having about two weeks of no sickness with Sadie’s pregnancy and thinking I would be one of those women who don’t get morning sickness. Then it hit. So we’ll see what happens. Taking it all in stride! (more…)
