We hit the first milestone: 24 weeks! Woohoo! On Monday and Tuesday I received steroid injections in my booty :p to help baby boy’s lungs develop faster. Such a relief to have that done! He is officially viable, so if he were to come early now, he could survive on his own! Yay! So reassuring to know that! Now we just need to keep him in LONGER! Our next milestone is 28 weeks … let’s do this!
All of his measurements are perfect and he weighs 1 lb 8 oz! My measurements are all perfect and on track as well! And little guy’s heartbeat is perfect too. :) So good to know he’s doing so well! He has been moving like CRAZY, kicking and punching and wiggling around. It’s so fun! AND, my doctor said that my cervix is stable! Woohoo!
My parents were in town for a few days this week and it was SO nice to see them and to have the help around the house! They stocked our fridge, cleaned, took Gunner to his vet appointment, and prepared meals for next week for us. We are so thankful for them!! My dad’s cousin, Kris, and her husband, Ross, brought us some chicken divan and some snacks! It was so yummy and so nice of them! Food is SO helpful to us right now!!
On Friday, on the way to my OBGYN appointment, I got super super lightheaded, dizzy, nauseated, and started seeing spots and sweating. It lasted about 10 minutes or so and it was so scary. Luckily, my parents were driving me since Ben was at work. I asked the doctor about it when I saw her and she didn’t seem concerned at all. I guess during pregnancy, your blood pressure drops, and it can lead to lightheadedness, etc… My BP was 107/71 which is pretty low for me. But again, the doctor wasn’t concerned. Seems like this is just a normal part of pregnancy! :p So many fun things! Despite everything, I still LOVE being pregnant! It’s just the most amazing thing and I feel SO blessed to be able to experience it!!
