An apology bumpdate

Ok, seriously, how have TWO weeks gone by?

I will be 21 weeks tomorrow.

And I didn't even take a 20 week pic.
You know, the monumental moment when you reach the halfway marker?

But I have been SO busy.
So much so that I've run my preggo body down.
And I have a terrible sinus infection.

Thank God my doctor believes in the ZPac.
Yes. Even when pregnant.
Let's hope it kicks the you-know-what out of this debilitating infection.

Unfortunately, life continues to race at a rapid speed,
and I'm not sure when it's going to slow down.
Wait yes I do - never.
So. Here's to a 20ish week bumpdate post!

How Far Along: 20 weeks...for 3 1/2 more hours. (Although doc says I'm measuring big...which would put me at 21 and almost 22 weeks. He's not changing the due date though!)

Maternity Clothes: Can't believe it, but I'm STILL in my regular clothes. Are they snug? Absolutely. But this belly band is a lifesaver. I will probably switch to maternity pants tomorrow. Just because I like the way my belly looks in maternity pants. :)

Also lifesavers? Leggings and dresses - no need for maternity gear!

Gender: Had our sonogram yesterday. However, we turned our heads when she got to the nether regions. We are having a gender-reveal party this weekend and won't find out until the same time as our close friends and family do!

*Lots of "experienced" moms swear I'm having a girl because I've been feeling so sick still - pesky nausea.
*Saw lots of old friends this weekend at a wedding - they all have a "feeling" it's a girl.
*And my students all think girl. Why? They say I've been EXTRA cranky. HA!

We're still banking on boy...

Movement: Since last week, I've been feeling SO much movement. Feels like we've got a little dancer on our hands. Oh, and baby kicked the ENTIRE flight to Nashville this past weekend. Couldn't tell if the babe loved or hated first flight. ;)

Sleep: Sleeping like a baby. Although, I got absolutely no sleep this past weekend. Wedding duty called! And now that I'm super sick, I'm trying to catch up. Lights out at 9:00 this week!

What I miss: My immune system.

No. Seriously. I've gone over a YEAR without being sick. But ever since I got pregnant, I've gotten the stomach flu and a sinus infection. Both have been TERRIBLE experiences. Not to mention the fact that I just feel nauseated or have a tummy ache all.the.time.

At least babe is getting all my immunity. After the sonogram yesterday, I'm convinced it's having the time of its little life! :)

Cravings: None. But I ate like a pig this weekend. I felt so guilty about it too. But I'm back to my healthy ways this week.

Other crazy symptoms: Major heartburn. I go through Tums like it's nobody's business.

Oh. And I FREAKED out because after traveling this weekend, I had NO ANKLES. I'm pretty sure it's too early for that nonsense. But, I think it was from flying, being dehydrated, and being sick. Ankles back in full form today.

Size of Babe: Banana. Doc said the babe is almost 1 pound. CRAZY!

Best Moment this week:

1). Celebrated my very best friend since kindergarten's wedding. I've been to a TON of weddings. And this one absolutely goes down in the history books. Even with me being so incredibly sick all weekend. Time.of.my.life. Details to come later.
2). Seeing our baby during the sono yesterday. We got to see babe sucking, dancing (seriously, the little feet were going NUTS), and grab his/her foot to play with. Absolutely adorable. I am so in love.
Bump Pics:

So this is totally cheating. But I'm pretending this is my 20 week pic (Was only shy of 20 weeks by 2 days). This is the b-maid dress I wore this weekend. I was TERRIFIED I wouldn't be able to fit into the dress b/c I got fitted a couple weeks before I found out I was preg. Remember, the bridal boutique was my second phone call after finding out I was pregnant? Luckily, it fit like a glove.

Leigh said...

Oh no, hope you are feeling better! Love both of your dresses...especially the first one :)

I miss my immune system too! I had that horrible stomach flu and followed it with bronchitis. I haven't had either in years. It's just cruel to make a pregnant girl go through those things...I wish you got a super immune system while preggers instead of the other way around!

So cute!

Krista said...

You look fantastic Ang! Umm...I was SUPER sick with my little man so my guess is BOY!! You'll quickly realize that everyone has a different experience and not to believe anything you hear:)

Kendra said...

You're so cute! (and tiny still!) I was not sick at all w/boy 1 but had morning sickness w/boy 2. So you never know! I'm excited to hear if it's a boy or a girl!

They always say a lot of heartburn means it's going to have a full head of hair!! Hope you start feeling better.
