Pregnancy Update!

I am 24 weeks now!  Viable Baby!

I went in at 19 weeks for my Anatomy scan and had them reconfirm he had a penis =)  After the anatomy scan we went home and got a call that the doctor wanted to see us to discuss the findings.  45 minute drive back seemed like 3 hours.  Everything was going through my head.

Well, it was a doctor we haven't seen yet.  He was older and a bit rude.  Turns out he just wanted to say that the spine image he got was blurry, but everything looked fine and based on my NT, in his opinion, the baby seemed healthy.  What he really wanted me in there for was to discus my weight.

Are you kidding me?  I don't know how much I've gained with this pregnancy, and I don't want to know.  I know that I put on some of the weight I lost as soon as I started eating normally again, and my exercising had to stop due to bleeding at the beginning.  But seriously?  He lectured me for 20 minutes on just my weight alone.  I tried to make light of the situation by cracking jokes, and he wasn't pleased.  He looked disgusted.  And that's when I decided that I was happy we were moving, and I was getting a new OB.

Here is his 19week profile

1 week after being here in Boise I started to feel "wet".  So we decided to have it checked out and make sure it wasn't my bag of water leaking.  It wasn't...It was increased vaginal discharge and I may have peed myself...ya, weird, right? haha  But from that visit I was able to find my new OB!  He had me come to the office a week later for my 1st prenatal visit, and a quick ultrasound, to check on the "spine" 

This OB office is a bit more expensive than the old one, but way worth it! 

So here are some pictures of the baby at 22 weeks and some shots of me!  Please ignore the "myspace angles"  and the pouty looking face in one of them, I promise I was trying to be hot for my husband, not you =)

<----21 weeks

<----23 weeks


  1. He scared the crap out of you to discuss your weight?! Boo. Glad you don't have to deal with him now! Your bump is way cute. Congrats on making it to 24 weeks! It's such a relief to get to that point and with each week it just gets better. :)

  2. What a jerk OB- he could have talked to you on the phone! And really, weight smeight. Gain what you feel comfortable with as long as it isnt obscene. You look great!!!
