20weeks 2days: Today was the ever so fun laundry day. It wasn't horribly bad we did get some of the baby things washed. The downfall was my husband forgot a pen in his light coloured pants that went in with the whites.....yeah we have some in stains on most of our white clothes now. Thankfully there just mostly around the house shirts. But I was feeling so blue (like the ink pen colour ha ha) I cheered myself up by buying some Pumpkin Butter and Wensleydale Cheese with Cranberries...mmmm.....I mean they were for Bee. Really, they are. I read that Bee's tastebuds have formed and that there is a difference in the taste of amniotic fluid from what the mama eats so I'd like to build up Bee's pallet. Bee has all ready enjoy Indian food and we have some plans for Ethiopian, European and well, whatever else we feel like. I'm also eating a lot of fruit and trying my hardest to force the veggies down.
Not much has been going on, I'm beyond exhausted all the time but getting my thyroid checked this week to make sure it isn't related to that. Morning sickness is gone but no appetite yet. I've gained 5 lbs and from the picture below you can tell it's all baby! Bee has been kicking a lot. I noticed that the kicks are so much further down and I'm carrying a lot lower than the boys but the doctor said that happens after a c-section. I'm tracking the kicks now, I know it's still way to early for a pattern but I like to see when Bee is most active so far. I do notice a pattern though I know it can change and that come 26-28 weeks is when I really should be doing kick counts. But for right now it gives me something to focus on and I've noticed with all three babies, they LOVE church! They always kicked so much during church and Bee does too. Bee also has hiccups already and they feel so funny to feel, just like Jacob's did!
Next week we are doing our first round of Maternity shots, a little bit excited for those. Hopefully my new glasses come in by then. Other than that, things are just going. Hit 20 weeks which means L&D whenever we feel the need and my next appointment is in 4 weeks which I see as a challenge to make it until then. Bee will get another ultrasound check up and I pray I don't have horrible horrible ultrasound tech lady (did I mention my belly is still a bit sore, even 5 days later) The picture below is from today, I may look drunk but I'm really just beyond exhausted. I can't seem to stay awake these day!
