20 weeks!

Eeeeekkk I can't believe I am 20 weeks today! Halfway there! Well apparently I will be induced around 38 weeks, so last week would have been halfway there but either way we are getting there.  No real update on the CDH condition.  We were suppose to have an appointment tomorrow with the specialist, Dr. David Kays but he canceled it today.  He canceled because we have an appointment with the peds cardiologist next Wednesday and then an ultrasound July 17 where they can do the head to lung ratio (he will be big enough then).  He wants these results first.  Basically we could still meet with him tomorrow but he could not tell us much about his plan until after these two other appointments.  That being said I am glad we are waiting despite the fact I really want to meet him and start developing a plan.  My OB (OK I now have 3 OB's, 2 high risk and my original) Dr. RR said last week that everything is going to planned out down the minute of his birth through induction! I am pretty sure I have mentioned this before but I love planning! It makes me feel great to have a plan and I can't wait to get the details of the plan.  We go to see Dr. RR on Wednesday so I am interested to see what else she has to say.

What else beside CDH is going on!
-I officially weigh less than I did this time last year and I am 20 weeks pregnant! What the heck!?!?!?!  I am still sick, but I feel like I eat all the time! Hubby says I am eating too healthy which I probably am but in 4 days I ate 2 big bags of chips and still lost weight! I give up!
- I am losing weight but nothing fits!  OK so hate me, I was a size 2 when I got pregnant and I like my clothes to fit, not to be loose on me.  So needless to say nothing fits!  I bought 3 pairs of shorts, 1 pair of pants, and 1 skirt and I love them! I have several shirts as well, because most of shirts are too short with my growing belly and boobs to cover the belly band or maternity waist. 
-I am having contractions off and on but Dr. RR says it is normal it just freaks me out.
-He moves all the time and I love it!!!! Today I felt him on the outside for the first time, but of course he doesn't want to move when his daddy is around! Loving every minute of it. 
-I am craving normal things for me!  Fruit, chips, mac and cheese, all of my usual favorites.  The only weird thing so far is frozen pizza!

I will update again as soon as there is something else to update on! Thanks for the prayers!

  1. Happy Half way point!!! I seriously can't believe you are already 20 weeks!!! I feel like you were just finding out you were pregnant. Sorry you are still feeling sick. As long as baby boy is growing, it is fine that you aren't gaining. Seems wierd to think...but as long as he is on track, don't worry about it too much! I will be praying that your appt with Dr Kays goes well and you will get that plan you are waiting for. It will feel so goo to finally know what and how everything is going to happen...especially for a planner like you!
