It’s been a little while since I’ve posted an update. I am happy to say that tomorrow I officially enter the ➋🅝🅓 🅣🅡🅘🅜🅔🅢🅣🅔🅡 at 13 weeks!!! 🎉
I’m hoping that soon the nausea will improve. I am having some better days but its still very overpowering. The Obgyn doubled my Diclectin and thats helped a lot but also makes me drowsy.
I met my new obgyn and she is lovely. She made me feel very comfortable & that she will take good care of our baby Frostie. She said “this baby is a miracle and I will protect it” and hugged me. I liked her right away. I see her again today for another appointment.
She wrote me off work a few more weeks to rest and I will be returning on a modified basis the week of May 20th. I am looking forward to getting back to work and out of the house, but also am nervous as the days are busy as a nurse and I’m hoping my body will allow me to keep up. All I can do is try my best!
She also informed me that she will be inducing me by 38 weeks if baby has not arrived. With my retroverted tilted uterus she said it’s too risky to go past 38 weeks. She also told me she will do her best to allow for a vaginal birth but to prepare for a c-section as there is a good possibility of that happening with my uterus. I’m considered high risk so I am fine with whatever keeps me baby and myself safe & healthy. So looks like this baby could make her entrance by end of October possibly! 🤱🏻
Now this past weekend was very exciting as we had our gender reveal with our families 💗.
Now you may be wondering how we found out the gender so early in our pregnancy. We did the Panorama blood test which you pay for but is 99% accurate in determining if the baby has any chromosomal abnormality risks and also can determine the gender through the fetal blood mixed with my maternal blood. You may do this test as early as 9 weeks. Our test came back great with low risk for any abnormalities and the clerk at my dr’s office was lovely to put the gender in a sealed envelope so I couldn’t see it. I drove straight to my best friend Patty’s house and gave to her. She was in charge of stuffing the llama pinata with the appropriate colour (yes a llama pinata was essential haha).
We patiently waited for May 4th to come upon us and my sister came over and decorated my house up. It looked great. We also baked a cake together and just made the day something special to remember. And a special day it was filled with guesses, joy, laughter & happy tears. I had thought baby was a boy but Mike knew was a girl. My Mom, Nana and Patty were the only other three that thought girl while everyone else was convinced was going to be a baby boy.
When I saw the pink come out of thr pinata (after a bit of a struggle) I just felt so much emotion come over me. We were going to have a daughter. If you had told me a year ago that I would have been doing our gender reveal I would have hoped was true but probably wouldn’t have believed it with all the heartbreak we had gone through.
Finding out we’re having a GIRL!
But I am a believer! This is our time. Our daughter is just as much of a fighter as her Mom & Dad. We fought with everything we had to get her here and she fought to stay with us. My heart is so full and we feel incredibly blessed. She’s our miracle. We cannot wait to meet you little one. Or as Daddy already is calling you, his little princess 👑.
We had an ultrasound yesterday as she was wiggling all over the place and throwing her arma into the air. The tech had a hard time doing the measurements she had to do as she wouldn’t cooperate for her haha. She’s looking more and more like a tiny human everytime we see her.
We are thrilled that things are going so well and we are officially 1/3 of the way there! 🙏🏻
