How far along are you? 19 weeks 1 day
Baby's Growth: The baby is the size of a mango. (Man that sounds really good right now) He was measuring a week ahead of schedule as of Monday at our last ultrasound. =)
Symptoms: Restless legs and leg cramps.
Cravings? Food Aversions? Lots of frozen fresh fruit. And Frozen yogurt. I've also been craving fish and chips.
Maternity Clothes? Most definitely. I "popped" according to my mom. To me this just means that I can't see my feet and that nothing is seeming to fit. UGH.
What I'm looking forward to.... Our daughter is getting dedicated on Sunday! (What an awesome Mother's day gift) My husband is the worship leader at our church, so he gets to announce the gender of our baby to the congregation then. =)
Medical Stuff: I had the anatomy ultrasound on Monday, and the baby is growing really well. =) We also found out that we are having a boy. I feel kinda proud that my "hunch" has been correct for both babies now.
Discussion Question: I talked to my doctor and found out that she and the hospital I was planning on delivering at don't support natural childbirth. I felt so out of control with my daughter's birth (I had an epidural and a really bad reaction to it) that I don't want to experience it again. So I am using a midwife this time around.I have never had a natural childbirth, so I'm a little scared of the pain, and that I won't be able to handle it. I've been praying for peace, as I know this is the path that the Lord wants me to take for this pregnancy.
