26 Weeks!

Sorry I know I have been MIA for a while.  It's been a long 6 weeks but right now I don't really feel like getting into it.  A few updates:

I switched to a High Risk OB and they are watching me very closely.  Love Them!  I just wasn't happy with my regular OB.  I felt like an after thought and that he was too concerned with vaginal rejuvenation consults than pregnant women and delivering babies. 

3 weeks ago we went for a level 2 ultrasound and baby girl was measuring small and my amniotic fluid was a little low. That freaked me out of course but the docs aren't concerned with her growth because she is still in the 30th percentile. It was hard to get a good read on her measurements because her feet were all the way up at her head.  They had me switch from side to side and she wouldn't change position.  (already a stubborn little one!  LOL)  She also likes to keep her right hand up at her face.  Her hand moves back and forth like she is waving at us which is pretty cute. 

I went for a fluid check the following week after downing tons of water and doing some laps in the pool and it was back up.  I am told that happens from time to time.   My next growth check is this Thursday. 

She sure is a mover! (especially at night)  It is so amazing to finally feel a baby moving in my belly. I've waited so long to experience it and I love it!  I can't wait for my husband and daughter to be able to actually see the movement on my stomach.

So 13 weeks left and counting.  This has been a pretty challenging pregnancy for me.  Without getting into details I have gotten really sick and been having some issues with dizziness which has been awful.  I've also had the usual pregnancy pains like the killer "Charlie Horses" in the middle of the night.  I'm trying to eat tons of bananas!  Went for a prenatal massage which was AMAZING!  I can't wait to go back again.  It's so nice to be able to lay on your stomach for a change since they have special tables with cutouts for your belly and boobs.  ha ha I think that is too funny but so needed!  Praying we have a good scan on Thursday and all looks good with little girl.

Here are some pics!
