A little kick here, and a little kick there

17 weeks and our little bubble has started kicking. I had already been feeling movement since 13ish weeks but can now feel the kicks. Its such a great feeling. I never knew how much I missed it since having Levi until I started to feel it again.

At the moment I am 18.5 weeks. We have exactly 10 days till we hopefully get to find out the sex of the baby. I cant wait. I dont really know what we are having. I have a feeling it may be a girl but that may just be wishful thinking. I would love to have a little girl but will be just as happy with another boy, although we have no idea on what he would be called since we only ever had one boys name picked out. We just have to wait and see.

15 Weeks

Wow already into the 2nd trimester. Seems like it is going so slow though. I guess maybe because most of the pregnant people around me are about to give birth soon.

Thankfully the morning sickness has left. I have thrown up a few times over the last few weeks but not ever day like I was. I just have to make sure that I eat when i feel hungry or I will puke then as well. I dont seem to be eating as much as I normally would though. I dont know if its because I lost weight before I got pregnant or what. I still havent put on any weight, which might be a good thing. I really dont want to put on as much weight as I did after I had Levi. Was only 73.4kg today, cant remember what I have been in the past but I was at 76kg when I got pregnant.

Only 5 more weeks till we get to see our little bubble again. I cant wait. Hopefully we get to find out the sex, legs open little one.

super lazy

is what I have been lately. Well thats not totally true, we have all been sick so I havent had all that much time nor energy to get on here but that was a week or so ago. I told myself I would get on here as often as i could lol.

So tomorrow I am 14 weeks. I cant believe it. 1st trimester is over but it seems to have taken forever to get here. People keep saying that the 2nd pregnancy is quicker but I havent found that at all. My friends is going to be having her 2nd baby in the next few weeks so maybe spending time with her and her bubba will make my pregnancy go faster lol.

I did have a scan last week. Got to see our little bubble. It was very relaxed just laying there with its hand under its head, so cute. I was so hoping they would be able to tell us the sex of the baby, but she said it was too early to tell which I expected anyway lol.

We moved the cot out of Levi's room yesterday. So he is well and truly in a big boy bed. No more getting lazy for me and just putting him in his cot so I can get some rest. We also moved the spare bed out of the new babies room so the cot could fit in there. There is not much room in the study now but nothing we can do about that lol.

1st Hospital Appointment

Went yesterday and did the usual 1st appointment stuff. Went through all our family history and all the information about my labour with Levi. Of course being another IVF pregnancy I have to have at least one appointment with the doctor at the hospital but all being well I should be able just to go to the birthing unit like I did last time and have all my appointments with the midwives.

Funny thing is I was asked if I would be willing to be part of a study for pregnant woman who are obese or over weight. Only because my BMI is like 28. I hate this stupid BMI shit. I am not obese I look fine and considering I lost 10kg before I even got pregnant. Grrr.

Anyway, I got to heat the babies heartbeat again which was nice. Still very strong and very fast. Also booked my scan for 8th September and morphology scan for October 26th. Cant wait to see my little bubble again.

We told my parents on the weekend that I was pregnant. Levi had his "This little monkey is going to be a big brother" t-shirt on. He looked so cute in it. I didnt even think to get a picture though. Will have to put him in it again and take a pic.

So we got to my parents and my dad straight away says to take Levi's jacket off because it was hot in the house. I thought for sure he was going to see the t-shirt. Pfft I was wrong. So we were standing that for a bit and Levi was already playing with his toys. My middle sister already knew about that t-shirt so she kept asking Levi what his t-shirt said trying to get people to notice. That still didnt work. So I told Levi to show everyone his t-shirt. Finally my little sister read it.

My parents of course cried. Strange lol. But they are happy so that is the main thing. Mum is stuck on the fact that Levi is born in March and now she has another 2 grandchildren due in march. Cant remember if I wrote about my little sister being pregnant as well.

So that was the telling of my parents. Everyone else can wait till after my scan.

Crazy Pregnancy

I am all over the place with this pregnancy. One day I can wake completely fine, no feeling of sick at all and no need for a nap lol. Others I will wake and feel like crap right away and not want to get out of bed, which of course I have to. I end up nearly falling asleep on the couch while Levi plays before we both go back to bed for our naps.

I also have been having some CRAZY dreams. Some have been funny, some interesting and some I wish I didn't remember when I woke up. I had one the other night just after my sister told me she was pregnant also, nothing to do with her but I couldn't get back to sleep after it. I also had one where I won over 9k in the pokies lol now that would be a nice one.

1st Scan

We got to see our little bean last night. I was so worried something was going to be wrong since this pregnancy started off so different to Levi's (although that has changed slightly).

So we have ONE little bean with a heart beat of 170bpm. The scan was done at 7.1wks. Levi's scan was done at 7.5wks and there is so much of a difference. His heart beat was 149bpm and at that point he was already 15.5mm this little one is only 8.9mm. Not to sure if that means much at the moment.

The pictures they printed out are so different to our last ones. Its a lot clearer even though all it is is a splodge lol.

Cant wait to see my little baby in a few more weeks.
