Our last appointment was on Thursday of last week. If you didn’t read how that went, you can here. We will be going to the Pediatric Cardiologist on Thursday morning. They were not able to get me in any quicker for the fetal ECHO.
I’ve done pretty good the past few days trying not to worry how the ECHO will turn out, as I know what’s meant to happen, will. God is in control and my worrying isn’t going to change things. I just pray. I certainly appreciate all the kind words I’ve gotten from you all.
Cohen is growing! He was 14oz and my last week and will probably reach 1 pound soon! I had a few other ultrasound pics and one was all the stats. The longest measurement was 11.5 inches so I'm guessing that's how long he is. A lot of what was said at our appointment I stopped comprehending at a certain point. Doctor said he had long legs and feet. That is funny because his mommy and daddy do not.
(the majority of these pics were taken with iphone)
Here he is at 21 weeks & 2 days...
maybe he will be a thumb sucker?
Here I am today.....
I wore red this week for Valentine's. I haven't worn short sleeves in quite some time. Puffy & pale, haha. I pulled my pants lower as I felt like they showed the current belly shape a bit better. No, I don't wear black yoga pants and a tee everyday. I put something of the sort on when I get home from work though. If I have pajama pants on, I'll switch for the pic if it's a Tuesday, for my belly pic :o)
The past few days, I feel like he has moved/kicked pretty steadily from about 12:30-1:30. Perhaps he wakes up for lunch. It's still crazy he is inside me! He hasn't woke me from sleeping with kicks yet. I'm still having a miserable time sleeping. I know it's evident when I wake in the morning.
This past Saturday, we registered! We registered at Babies R Us, Target & a local boutique (which I did a few weeks back)! We decided not to do Pottery Barn Kids because there wasn't anything we just needed from there. Most of the nursery stuff will be custom(bedding), bought online or done with my lil hands. We aren't finished registering though. We have some adjustments to make as decisions were hard! My question to you all that are mommies or those of may have heard about certain things..... WHAT DO YOU LIKE!? What are your must haves, necessities, favorites? If you have a link to a post you have done, will you post it with your comment for me? Email me? Anything you would like really! I would GREATLY appreciate it!
Babies R Us was PACKED and my back starting hurting walking around. Don't let the gun in my hand confuse you, hubs was ALL about scanning things!
We took hub's sister with us to Babies R Us as she is quite knowledgeable in the baby department after 3 babies. She also brought this little guy along....
He got a pair of jeans. You can see those on him in my previous post. Let me just tell you that the size of his new jeans are 9 months and he is currently 12 weeks! haha!
Oh, by the way, yall's comments regarding "expecting mommy parking" were great! Yes, we do have a few here. Just not NEARLY enough. The only places I've seen the parking spots are Babies R Us & Church. So, I'm jealous of locations where there are more!
Not too much sounds good to eat lately. I don't have any major cravings. I love ice cream & frozen yogurt. I often feel like I'm eating just to eat. I'm trying to stop that. For instance, I ate a pretty decent size breakfast last Sunday about 10am. At 11am, hubs had to run an errand and said he would pick up lunch. He asked me what I wanted. Well, nothing? I just wasn't hungry yet. I placed my order anyway. Something I do really like right now is bacon, egg & cheese on an English muffin! We eat the double fiber English muffin and love it. We also use turkey bacon.
I must show you the inside...the heart :)
hubs has been using this to keep a shape that fits the muffin. We have been doing over easy lately.
Hubby has been SUPER good about cooking dinner for me :) By the time I get home, I want to crash! I feel like my energy is fading a bit. Either that, or I'm just on my feet a bit more in the day. By the time I get home, it's hard for me to do anything.
I've switched to ankle socks only. The others are getting too tight.
I'm forgetful. It's bad.
I have a warrant out for my arrest. Classy, huh? I got a speeding ticket in January. Mind you, it was my first spending ticket in like 10 years. Well, I had only about 10 days to go in and pay it. I got the minimum ticket. I COMPLETELY forgot. I remembered the other day and thought "oh crap". So, now I have to go to court :( However, I'm not on the "docket" so that is no good. That basically means, I don't have a court date/time and I would just have to go in and wait until EVERYONE'S name had been called and then try to get mine settled. Luckily, my father-in-law is a lawyer and set me up with one of is law world friends. She will walk me through court. Once the judge sees her, she said we will getting right on through. Hopefully shortening the process to just an hour. Oops. I won't make that mistake again.
Guess what else I did. FORGOT TO PAY THE ELECTRIC BILL! (This was last Wednesday) I know you are thinking, well that's okay, just pay it now. Well, it was too late. I forgot to pay last months. So, when I remembered last week, I called. I paid. Well the next day I got home and NO POWER. What the heck? I paid the bill! Well, they decided they wanted me to pay the newest bill. Well, I didn't have the newest bill with me when I called the day before and I did the automatic system. So, they cut our power off for $63!!! I was SO SO SO upset. Mostly because the people were rude. It was cold and I just wanted to be snuggled at home. I got home about 5:20 that day and called. Two women were rude and I finally asked for the supervisor. He had to call me back. He finally told me they don't do re-connects until 8am. The women acted like they could re-connect any time within 24 hours. They only do them from 8am-5pm! WHAT?! That is insanity. First of all, if they were going to cut our power off, they should have told me the day before when I WAS ON THE PHONE with them!! I paid the bill. It wasn't expensive! I would have paid the other $63 had I known it was ready to be paid! Anyways, we stayed at hubby's sisters. They turned the power on the very next morning. Yes, I told them it was just wrong. The cable company freaking works past 5, why can't the electric. What is more important? And I mean don't they know that pregnant women are FORGETFUL! Oh yes, I certainly told them I was pregnant. They could have cared less. I kept thinking what about the families out there with new babies or kids in the middle of winter. I thought about those that were forgetful and those that simply didn't have the money. I honestly think electricity should be a common courtesy, of the world. I'm still debating writing a letter.
We are giving our current "child" lots of loving as always. He is the sweetest dog. We tell Cohen his big brother is a dog, hahaha. Sick, I know.
I think that is about it for this week. I will probably post soon after my doctor's appointment which is on Thursday morning. My next regularly scheduled appointment is March 4th and I'll do glucose test then.
Don't forget to link me or send me those baby related things you can't live without!!
