Still Here

Sorry for taking so long to update. I think part of the reason that I haven't updated is that I just feel like I sound like a broken record--I don't have anything new to report other than I am still P and that there are still uninvited sacs present in my uterus. I went back for a f/u today and they found 3 sacs plus the baby-last week at my NT scan they found 2. I wasn't jumping up and down for joy when I heard this because I wanted a second u/s to confirm that there were indeed only 2 sacs left. After my experience a couple of weeks ago, I knew that I can't celebrate right away. Things are progressing nicely with the baby. The NT scan showed that he/she has a very low chance of downs so that is a good thing. I have 1 more appointment with Dr. Midwest(in 2 weeks) and then I transfer to the new OB. I try to just focus on the baby at this point. I keep thinking that these sacs are so small that eventually the baby will just take over the space. I am entering my 2nd trimester and I feel like the last few weeks all I can think about are these sacs that I forget what is really important. I want to enjoy this P and not be so overly concerned about things that I can't control. I figured at this point, what ever happen will happen and there is nothing I can do about it. The baby is growing well and there is nothing to be worried about. 12 weeks down, 28 weeks more to go-I hope.

I finally broke down this week and wore a maternity top! I was trying to hold off for so long--I think mentally I wasn't ready to take them out. Not that I don't like/enjoy that I am pregnant-but I was well into my 2nd trimester(I believe it was in the 17th or 18th week) the first pregnancy before I put on a maternity outfit. I knew that with the 2nd P you pop out sooner and your body knows what to do and everything is all stretched out. But I wasn't ready for this at 8 or 10 weeks!!! But you know it is time to surrender when your nanny says something about your outfit!!! So as of yesterday I started wearing maternity top. I wasn't ready for the pants yet, until today when Dr. Midwest mentioned that it might be time for new pants!!! Boy, was I embarrassed!!! So here I am barely at 12 weeks and I think I need to throw the towel and accept that fact that I won't make it to 17 weeks, it's time.

On the B front, well he is actually 15 months today!!! I can't believe it. He is growing so much and getting into everything. He is still not fully walking, but he can take a few steps at a time. Last week he took 14 steps on his own without falling!!! I am so proud of him. I also think he is transitioning to 1 nap a day. I noticed that if he takes his morning nap, it is almost impossible for him to go down for an afternoon nap. We would put him in his crib and he will talk to himself and his monkey blanket for an hour!!! I guess the upside is that he is not screaming or crying. So I think we will try to transition him to 1 nap a day and see how this will work out. He babbles a lot-but we are still working on him saying mama--oh well, I know he will get there. He loves playing his drums and any other musical instruments he can get his hands on. I guess those music classes are really paying off! Every night before bedtime, he listens to music and plays along with S--it is super cute to watch. He is such a happy boy and we are so blessed to have him.

I'm so glad the baby is doing well. I agree with your standpoint about not worrying about things you cannot control.

B sounds like a delight! I'm worried about K's speech as well. My mom (who has a degree in early childhood education) told me to relax. That really I shouldn't worry until after she's 2 years old. So, ok. I just keep reading to her and clearly pronouncing things. She'll get it, just like B.

He's taking those daring steps!! Won't be long now!

Glad to hear things are going well! And sounds like B is doing great. I wonder if "mama" comes later for a lot of kids. If you ask BG "Where's Mommy?" she actually points to herself? Possibly she thinks we're asking, "Where's your tummy?"

Glad to hear things are going well. I know how it's so much easier to focus on the things you are worrying about versus the good things that are going on. How exciting to be wearing maternity clothes again! Must be so odd!

B sounds like he is doing SO GREAT! Happy 15 months! The time goes quicker than you ever expect that it will, doesn't it?

You sound good! I am so happy to hear that things are going well for you. :-)

Time to go shopping! Lucky you, all the maternity looking tops are still in the stores. Do we get a bump picture soon?

After mama and dada, will he say brother or sister?

WOW MOMO!! OMG!! I am so out of the loop, when I read your post about being P I almost fell right outta my chair. And then I read the header again to make sure the post was from THIS YEAR!!

Congrats my dear :-)

Sounds scary with the sacs, but I'm so relieved the baby is doing well. I wish you a healthy pregnancy.

Much love to you!
