This week has been fine… up until now. I just started spotting a bit. (Back to this a bit later…)
I had my ultrasound today. Everything is normal. Baby girl is healthy and weighs 1 pound 1 ounce. I did voice my concern over some cramps I was having, but the doctor and I both agree it is constipation. The appointment went fine, except for the fact that baby girl was so stubborn. She was curled up in a ball and we don’t have any good pictures of her. However, Faith and Aaron were excited to see her on the computer screen :) Faith saw her moving around, but we could never get a good view of her face. All my ultrasounds pics they gave me are a bunch of blurry blobs. We can’t really make anything out. The ultrasound technician could see what she needed to see though, and she said everything looks good. Baby girl’s face was pressed right up against my uterine wall. Very stubborn girl lol. My blood pressure was fine. Urine sample was fine. Ultrasound was fine, but they want to take another ultrasound next month to get some better images.
Aaron, Faith and I stopped at Petsmart after the appointment to get Rocky a Christmas present. Then we picked up some KFC and went home. I went pee and noticed the blood. I called the doctor right away to tell them. She said that if the bleeding gets heavier, go to the emergency room. I am not having contractions. I have some cramping only because I’ve been constipated. The doctor doesn’t seem worried right now because she said the chances of miscarriage is extremely low at 21 weeks pregnant. But for me… honestly… I can’t help but be freaking out a little bit. I never spotted during my pregnancy with Faith. The ONLY times I spotted was when I had my two miscarriages. I’m trying not to worry. I know this is all in God’s hands. I’ve prepared myself for complications or another loss because I know even at mid-pregnancy it can still happen. Has any of you had spotting during pregnancy, and everything was fine? I’m asking for prayers. Prayers for God’s protection and ultimately His will for me and my family. I will keep you all posted on any changes.
21 weeks belly pic…
Here is what baby girl looks like at 21 weeks… She was very camera shy lol.
Hopefully at the next ultrasound she will show her face!
Your baby now is approximately 10 1/2 inches long — about the size of a carrot. You may soon feel like she’s practicing martial arts as her initial fluttering movements turn into full-fledged kicks and nudges. You may also discover a pattern to her activity as you get to know her better. In other developments, your baby’s eyebrows and lids are present now, and if you’re having a girl, her vagina has begun to form as well.
Faith said a little prayer before the appointment. She said, “Dear God, please make the baby healthy and clean and be ok.” Lol. I know He hears her.One last thing... please subscribe to my blog.
