I can't believe week 20 of this pregnancy is already over! Luckily things seemed to slow down a bit this week and it went by relatively complication free.
Some highlights for week 20:
- My mom was able to meet my incredible doctor, Dr. Artoune, and hear the baby's heartbeat for the first time.
- The anatomy scan revealed no complications and baby is happy and healthy.
- I was removed from my modified bed rest and was able to go walking again (HOORAY!!!).
This week I've really been trying to focus on lowering my sugar intake and rest. I will say that there was a bit of a scary point when I almost passed out in Babies R'Us but some time sitting with my feet up and lots of water did wonders.
Most of our registry is now complete thanks to the registry spree my mom, sister and I went on Saturday. It was pretty overwhelming but they were awesome and helped this pregnant lady out a bunch.
I have to say that figuring out what to register for as a first-time mom was worse than trying to learn most of the things in my masters degree! So many reviews to read, opinions thrown around, and waffling back and forth about what I actually even needed! Needless to say, I'm so glad that is over with!
On a more positive note, I am excited for the Baby shower my mom, sister and awesome family friend Tracey are throwing for our little man. The invites are SO CUTE and the theme is such a total reflection of Matt, Baby boy, and me. I honestly can't wait to spend that special time celebrating our boy with people I love and care about....not to mention getting to see all the cute baby things and eat delicious gluten free cake!
The baby bump is very much there...although I still get comments from people that I don't look pregnant....Let me tell you...I certainly feel pregnant! The 4am insomnia and random days of depression still happen but I'm lucky enough that they aren't every day.
Overall, I'm feeling ok and baby is healthy and strong! Mostly, I just go about my days building my business, resting, and feeling gratitude for this incredible gift growing inside of me.
Thanks for reading!
