I can’t even remember the last time I posted… Nora is keeping me extra busy these days, still clinging to me 90% of her awake hours. As cute as it was at first, I just want to get something done! I don’t think I’ve done laundry in over a week. I might have to go buy new underwear today!
20 week anatomy scan and appointment was flawless. The ultrasound tech and my doctor told me baby girl looks perfect. Below are a few pictures 🙂 We’re still working on names. I have a few in mind, but none I’m completely set on.
My cervix measured 2.9 cm, so still short, but not in the danger zone. It’s my understanding they won’t measure my cervix from here on out… Makes me a little nervous, but I guess I just have to trust that my doctors know what’s best. I certainly feel different this pregnancy. With Nora I always felt like she was literally falling out. I don’t feel that way at all this time, so something must be different, in a good way. Below is a picture from 21 weeks. I have gained way more weight this time… Too much McDonald’s is to blame, I assume. But at night I crave pretzels, apples, and watermelon. Could be worse I guess. (I’m convinced your behind grows during pregnancy to even out your center of gravity.)
Nora is still living on mainly chicken nuggets, mac and cheese, and hot dogs. We added in blueberries though… but wow, messy diapers from those! At her 15 month check last week she weighed in at a whopping 17 lbs 2 oz. But the good news, she is on the charts now, unadjusted! Well, only 1% for weight, but still. They did recommend feeding her Pediasure instead of regular infant formula as it has 30 cals/oz compared to 22-23 cals/oz. Hopefully it helps her gain a little faster. Sometimes I feel bad giving it to her though, and still in a bottle, like I’m relying too much on it, for the times I can’t get her to eat much solid food for a meal. It’s kind of my fall back… She will usually suck down 7 oz of it before bed. I’m going to keep trying sippy cups, but for the time being, before naps and bed she is refusing them but will take a bottle.
I’m out of thoughts for today. I should be better about posting more often, I like looking back at where we’re been, it’s just that finding the time lately is hard. And I assume it won’t get any better after Nora’s little sister arrives!
