Its a Food Baby… Just Kidding

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

 

Baby Gautreaux:

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

Gender: ??

Momma:

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.

 

 

 

Bye Bye 2016
