I have not posted anything since January, that is due to the fact we found out we are expecting a little bundle of joy in October. We did not tell the family until last week after we made sure we were in the clear of any issues that could possibly arise. So to not risk spilling the beans to the internet, I have stayed away! So here is an update
Current Size: 2.9in so about the size of a peach
Age: 13 weeks 4 days
Heart Rate: 168bpm at (11 weeks 4 days)
Due Date: Oct. 21st
Midwife: Robin Higgins at Richmond Women’s health, she is absolutely wonderful so far
Complaints: Already having to buy maternity clothes (yes,cute baby bump pic to come), lower back pain, inability to handle the heat, many many bathroom trips
Morning Sickness: Only lasted during week 7
Severe Acne: None, skin is actually impoving
Medical Issues: Absolutely none so far.
Favorite Snacks: Fresh Fruit, Fresh Veggies with ranch, yogurt and sour patch kids
My plan is for this pregnancy and birth to be 100% natural, no inductions, no c-section, no medications what so ever. I would prefer to have baby gautreaux at home but in Central KY it is very difficult to find a home birth midwife.
