Baby C #3 Update

26 Jun

All is going well around here.  I had an appointment last Wednesday (17 weeks 1 day) and the baby looks great.  I’ve tried to compare the ultrasound to both Henry and Thomas, and there are similarities so we’ll just have to wait another 22 weeks to see if it’s a boy or a girl 🙂

As of today , I’m 18 weeks 1 day and feeling pretty well besides this awful chest cold I acquired from one of the boys.

Due Date: November 26, 2013

Weight: Per the doctors office I’ve gained 5 1/2 lbs so far.  Probably very similar to what I gained with the boys

Baby Development: This week the baby is as big as a mango, weighing in at 0.5 lbs and 6 inches from crown to rump

Cravings: This one is a hard one.  I’m not sure if some of my cravings are pregnancy related or just the fact that I haven’t found them here yet.  The usuals are sushi, Wawa italian hoagie, Vietnamese food.  The great thing is; we’ll be going home next Tuesday and I’ll be able to satisfy all my cravings…all but the raw fish sushi but I’m sure the cooked version will do.

Aversions:  With both boys I could not even look at chicken, however this time around I’ve been eating a lot of it, between beer can chicken, grilled chicken breasts and chicken burgers.  Umm, cheese really turns me off, but other than that I can’t really think of anything

Symptoms: I’ve been so unbelievably tired lately, is it the cold or is it something I need to bring to my docs attention (anemia), I’m not sure.  That or this little one is just growing and taking it all away from me.  I seriously look forward to 2pm when the boys nap 🙂

Sleep: Ok.  I’m usually a great sleeper and up until I got this cold I was sleeping great.  Now when I lay down all I can do is cough…blah

Clothing:  I’m still in my pre-pregnancy clothing, but I’ll give the stretch in my jeans the credit.  My belly hasn’t popped yet…but soon I know

Movement:  Yes I feel the baby swimming around in there, no major jabs but I know those are soon to come…and often times painful

It’s a: I go either way.  At my appointment last  week I had the option on finding out and I said no…but it was harder this time.  I kinda wished I knew just because we’re going home next Tuesday and I could grab boy clothes if need be or our neighbor is having a boy and has 4 boxes of girl clothes waiting.  Oh well, in December when we’re home for Christmas the baby will only be 4 weeks (Yes we’re hoping to get a passport and fly the baby home for Christmas, it was ok’d by my doc) so the baby won’t need much in the interim.

Exercise: I try and work out 30 minutes each day, except for this week just because I tried and it only makes me cough more

Diet:  I’ve been eating more like 6 small meals a day, or whatever I can squeeze in between playing with the boys 🙂
