Baby on Board!



FAQs:

-Was it planned? YES
-When are you due? Nov 26
-Any morning sickness? NO. I feel so blessed and have felt great the entire time. I've only thrown up a few times but it was right after I ate something. I just learned to stay away from avocados and eggs for awhile.
-Do you plan to find out the gender? YES. Hopefully we'll find out before we head to Utah for the 4th of July, if not, it will be right after.
-Do you have any cravings? NO

We are both so excited for this new chapter in our lives. We waited a long time and finally feel that we're ready to be parents. (Although everyone says it's something you can't really prepare for). There have been a few bumps along the way. Around 12 weeks my Midwife noticed that my uterus was really high and big for how far along I was, which meant I was either having twins (Ryan's a twin) or my due date was off. Instead of making us wait weeks to find out she did a quick ultrasound to reassure us there's just one baby. At our official ultrasound a few days later they moved my due date up a week but also found that I have a cyst on my right ovary. Cysts are quite common and most go away during pregnancy, but they were concerned because mine is 5x7 cm. It's pushing my uterus up and to the side which is why it's so high. After some spotting, another ultrasound and a few doctor visits later they decided to refer me to the Center for Prenatal Development where I could get a more clear ultrasound from a Perinatologist. My appointment is Thursday. They're hoping it shrinks but there is concern that because it's so big it may twist or flip my ovary. That would be really painful and they would have to operate. Also, I have a low lying placenta. It's only about an inch above my uterus which is causing the spotting. They're not worried because they said it should rise as the baby grows. Because I have A- blood I also had to get a Rhogam shot. Normally they wait until about 28 weeks but because I've been spotting they were concerned I may already have antibodies. Luckily, it didn't hurt at all.

The baby however, thank goodness, is perfect.
