21 weeks ultrasound

Our sweet little baby!! I love it sooo much already!!

We had our ultrasound today!!!  The baby is measuring in the 60th some percentile and is looking great.  I am even measuring a couple days early. YAY.  The baby is around 1 lb.  It is seriously the most amazing little miracle.  It is crazy how much it already looks so much like a little baby just moving around in my stomach.  We did not find out gender, but any guesses????

21 Weeks

Total weight gain/loss:  9 pounds-

Maternity clothes: Yes more and more.

Stretch Marks: Just a couple left over from my last three pregnancies- I get stretch marks on my butt, inner thighs, and lower back area and some other areas.

Symptoms: Perioral dermatitis on my face, appetite increase, tired, digestive issues

Best Moment: Getting to see the baby ❤ ❤

Miss Anything:  Not being sooooooo tired, my patience, an adult beverage, and the sunshine

Movement: YES!!!! Travis can feel it as well. I asked Kenna if she wanted to and she was totally weirded out and said NO! lol

Food cravings:  Nothing this week. I can’t think of anything that sounds good or even any restaurants that I would want to go to if I could.

Anything making you queasy or sick: This week things have been pretty mellow

Have you started to show yet? Yes, Trav and I were just talking about how in these last two weeks my bump has popped

Labor Signs: zero

Belly button in or out: Half popped-the top part is popped out and the bottom part is not.

Gender: After the ultrasound I would say the 3d picture looked most like a boy compared to our other ones, but its so hard to say lol.  I also did not see anything in the nether regions to make me think it could be a boy. We asked not to find out the gender and our ultrasound tech said she would stay away from that region, but I still tried to steal a glance to see if I could see anything and there was nothing that made me think we were having a boy.   Trav said after the ultrasound he thinks there is a 50 percent chance of either girl or boy. HAHAHAHA

20 WEEKS

I can’t believe I am half way through this pregnancy.  It has been my hardest pregnancy, but thankfully my fastest:) I am so excited to see this little peanut in one week at our ultrasound.
This last week was sooo COLD in Wisconsin.  We had 5 days of a polar vortex where we had temps with wind chill  -55.  Like are you kidding me. That is crazy.  We couldn’t do anything and were cooped up for almost a solid week.  Jovie didn’t sleep well which made for long days filled with lots of tears, breaks, and me reading online what to do with an angry two year old.    So to stay the least I am soooo over January.  That was one long month. I am ready for spring and sunshine and to play outside and not have my face hurt because it is so cold when I step outside.
Pregnancy keeps trucking along. It has been my hardest pregnancy.  I have more digestive issues than I have had in the past and feel that if it is possible that I am even more tired than I have been with the last pregnancies.  I literally do not want to get up or do anything.  I have to give myself little pep talks to get anything done.  Hopefully as it starts to warm up my energy will come back around a little bit.  I also feel like it is hard to do extra things with the girls.  I just don’t have energy.  I will be thankful when I am more like myself again and can help the girls more and play and do crafts, and have more fun.  Right now I feel like I am just a big tired negative Nancy. lol.   My face rash is still going strong and if I don’t wear makeup I get a lot of comments like “Ohhhh honey your face is so red.”  I don’t even try to explain, I just comment “oh yes, it is super cold outside” and move along with my day. The baby has been moving more and more and Travis has been able to feel it multiple times.  I love to sit there at night and feel it move. It is crazy to think about how there is a little human moving around in their, it sure is a miracle.

Symptoms: Perioral dermatitis on my face :(, Tired, emotional (I cried at the end of Mulan) lol. I am not usually a big crier so it is weird to me.  Digestive issues

Miss Anything:  Not being sooooooo tired, my patience, an adult beverage, and the sunshine

19 Weeks

You guys are going to get two post in one day!!! I forgot to post this last week lol.  SO this for the week of 17th through the 24th!  This last week was a rough one.  January has taken its tole on me.  I was very tired and emotional. Being a mom is a tough job. You constantly give and give and give all day.  You so often forget to take care of yourself.  Or what it even means to take care of yourself or how to.  It is so easy to get in mom mode.  As moms we juggle so many hats and then to fill our cups we are supposed to do a list of things.  But how do you find time.  You are supposed to workout, eat right, get ready in the morning, read, I can’t even find time to shower at the moment or have the energy to fix my hair.  Is there a secret to all of this with small kids?  Please let me know!!  It has been a long January and I am looking forward to February and trying to take better care of myself.
This is the last week of swimming lessons for the girls.  The teacher recommended we sign up for the next lessons because Emmy is finally starting to relax in the water.  With looking into signing up so late we are the waiting list. So we will see if we will continue with swimming lessons next month. The girls loved it and Trav and I both think its important they learn how to swim.
We are surviving potty training. We had a couple rough days last week. Jovie peed her pants 5 times one day.  I think she honestly was tired and just didn’t want to do it. She kept asking for a diaper.  I stayed strong and kept her in her undies and she went the last two days with zero accidents!!! YAY.  Potty training is a full time job. I do not know how daycare’s do it with multiple children at that age.
Pregnancy has been rough this week.  My face rash is really red and bumpy and itchy.  I have also been super tired and emotional.  I think I almost cried everyday this week because I have been so tired and overwhelmed.  I have also been having a lot of digestive issues.  All of these symptoms are part of the game and I just love feeling that little baby move.
