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!
