20 weeks

September 22, 2009 at 6:07 pm (Uncategorized)

Today I am 20 weeks, and that certainly feels like a milestone. Duh, I guess. We had our 20 week anatomy scan today, and everything is perfect. I feel so lucky that I almost feel guilty. He’s still definitely a he, and he has all the parts he should have. He is even measuring exactly 20 weeks today. I guess I’m proud? I’ve been feeling his little kicks for awhile now, but they are pretty subtle. And I’ve been getting pretty excited at the prospect of meeting this dapper young fellow. I know we have a long way to go, though.

I am clearly showing now and pretty obviously pregnant to anyone who actually looks at me from the side. I am also feeling a BILLION times better, and though I still think pregnancy means just feeling physically worse than not being pregnant, it’s pretty good right now. I am hardly nauseous at all anymore. And I am able to take my iron every night, which is probably also helping how I’m feeling.

And that’s that. I just wanted to provide an update. We are agonizing over names (well, it’s not really agony; in fact, it seems to be the most fun my husband has doing anything these days–he likes to bring it up at parties and get people going about it) and I haven’t bought a single baby item yet because I’m terrified and overwhelmed. When will this feeling end and when will I get my shit together?

But really, everything’s pretty wonderful and I just wanted my 2 1/2 or so readers to know.

    I think about you all the time. I’m glad you update every once in a while. Keep doing it s, I know you’re okay.

    Enjoy, revel and GLOW through the pregnancy. Believe it or not, it’ll be over so soon and you’ll miss the incredible feeling of having your son grow inside your tummy.

    Congrats on the 20 week milestone! I am so glad you are feeling better… the second trimester truly is heaven. Enjoy it while it lasts. šŸ™‚

    It is so hard to get through pregnancy post infertility. Honestly, I think even up to the end I was walking around with the “but what is she doesn’t actually get born” thoughts. And then, she was born. And life hasn’t remotely been the same since.
