I went for my monthly midwife appointment on Monday and things looked really well! My belly is ever-growing, it measures 14.5 weeks, which is about a week ahead of schedule, but that’s normal for a 2nd pregnancy.
The baby’s heart rate was 160 bmp, which is exactly what Harlo’s was at this time. Brady’s convinced it’s another girl, but I think different… we’ll see next month who’s right!
Some silly things about this pregnancy, I thought I was pregnant long before it was time to test, so right the second it was possible to get a realistic result, I went and bought some cheapie test and took them, both. Both negative. No big, didn’t think too much about it, but a few days went by and I could still swear I was pregnant! I was now just a few days late, which can still be normal, but my pants were having a hard time buttoning and a few other things that were just like when I was first pregnant with Harlo.. so the night before Thanksgiving Brady and I went on a date and on our way home we stopped and got another, more expensive test. I took the first one and there was a faint, faint 2nd line (positive) I said “I told you! I knew I was pregnant” but Brady was convinced that that line was just to show you where a 2nd line would be in the event of a positive, but it wasn’t a positive. Well, we decided to test the next morning, which is really when you’re supposed to anyway. I took the next one, same thing. faint line. By this time I was convinced, I knew before I even took the first test that I was pregnant, but I couldn’t get too excited because Brady kept saying “don’t get excited yet, I really don’t think it’s positive” (Brady is always in denial about everything.. my first pregnancy, when I was in labor, and now this! :) so the NEXT day, Brady was out Christmas shopping and I told him to stop and get one of those digital tests so we knew FOR sure, either way. Well he got home and I took it, we waited and waited (those ones take a lot longer!) and finally we see PREGNANT. FINALLY Brady believed it and we were able to celebrate. So, that is a total of FIVE tests later, but we finally got it. Now, when you see those commercials that say “reading a pregnancy test can be very confusing..” think of us. I used to laugh those off too, not anymore.
Also, we ate Durangos for dinner right before finding out I was pregnant this time.
We ate Durangos for lunch right before finding out we were pregnant the first time.
New Moon was the first movie I saw during this pregnancy, Twilight was the last movie I saw before having Harlo. (4 days before, to be exact)
I found on the end of November, 4 weeks along with my second pregnancy.
Last November, I had 4 weeks LEFT of my first pregnancy.
Just some funny little details.
