Best thing I have ever been told by a medical professional!

Today, I had a visit with the nurse practitioner at my OB's office for my 20 week visit! I walked out of there smiling! Not only because I got to hear his heartbeat, but she told me something I had never thought I had heard before! Good job (on gaining weight!) I told her about my reoccurring morning sickness that comes and goes. She looked at the chart and said I was doing a good job because I am gaining weight! I almost cried after I got on the scale because I gained 5 pounds since my last visit a month ago (up to a total of 7 which I think a high percentage is related to boobage and belly, lol) and was not happy. After she said that, I wanted to jump for joy, lol! She said that basically during my bad bouts of morning sickness, I was basically starving (which at that time isn't that big of a deal bc baby is size of pea or so)

Seriously, the best thing anyone could ever say to a woman (much less a prego woman!)

She also told me that the u/s looked fantastic, no issues at all! She said not to worry, and enjoy the rest of the pregnancy while I can! I go for my next u/s a MoBap next week to relook at the heart since he wasn't fully cooperating/developed at that time! I can't wait to see the little man again!

I also go my schedule of my remaining visits! HOLY CRAP! I am having a BABY! I think that started to run through my head! I have two more monthly visits, then twice a month in Sept, and then weekly from then out! Looking at it on paper, makes me want to run home and get the nursery ready, lol!

This weekend was insane! I cleaned out the nursery, the garage, and the basement (and I contemplated vacuuming the garage) as well as the rest of the house. I think a little neurotic nesting has begun. Seriously, which brings me to the next thing...and I am way beyond excited but how am I going to handle my house being in shambles for a few weeks?

This week, my house begins demolition! I can't wait to show you the before and after pics of this home reno! It's a BIG one! I get to finally say good-bye to something in the house that I HATE with a PASSION! (AKA=circa 1984) The demo starts Saturday, and we rented a dumpster for the day! I get to watch.....booo! No one will let me help! I guess I'll just stand barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen and make men food. I CANNOT WAIT TILL IT IS DONE! (and show you pictures!)

I plan on taking a pic this Weds because I will offically be 20 weeks (and my belly looks it!) Half-way done baby!!!!! WOOOT!

You're at the halfway point?!?! Already?!?! Wow, time goes fast!
Can't wait to see all the fun stuff you have coming up...

Good luck with the renovations!

And don't worry about your house being in shambles for a few weeks (or a few months as the case may be!), you will probably be too busy or tired to notice it or care. If you can though, maybe get a cleaner to start coming once a week as you get closer to due, that way some stuff will still be getting done and you won't have to worry so much about it. I would LOVE to have a cleaner come here, but it's not high enough on the list of priorities right now.

Yay for people saying good things about weight gain! Hopefully this appointment put you more at ease. It will be awesome to have another ultrasound too. I'm eager to see some demo befores and afters!
