20 weeks 5 days: Milo is on the mend. We switched him to gastrointestinal food while keeping Charlie on the hypoallergenic (I did not want to deal with exploding poop all over the house again) he is on anti-biotics for 10 days and some probiotic/acid reducer powder. We are also going to invest in one of these Feliway diffusers, it's suppose to help ease stress (Milo takes after me) and I figure it may be good for him to prepare for whatever comes the next few months. The only downfall is that where you plug them in has to be free of anything and because we baby proofed our house awhile ago, all our plugs are hidden. But, if the little guy needs it, he needs it. I really should have bought pet insurance for him a few years ago.
My tummy has hurt ever since my last ultrasound. It just has felt off. I've been having a lot of pain since then, perhaps it is growing pain as I am super huge these days (and still have 15 weeks to go AHHH, see the picture below) but it seems kind of weird that it all started the day of the attack on my belly. We shall see. At least Bee is happily kicking away and I'll call it now, this is going to be a c-section baby. Bee has been head up for awhile now and I know babies can still turn but not Nelles babies, they like to be stubborn like their parents. Given Jacob was head down until week 35 and Ty did turn head down which caused him to die so it is possible but Bee can stay whatever way Bee feels like and I'll be fine. I've had a c-section I know for me it was easier then my natural with Ty. Regardless, I hope this tummy pain goes away, it is concerning and I have 3 more weeks to go!
Speaking of which, 1 week down 3 to go. I can do this (maybe) as long as Bee keeps kicking away and the pain doesn't intensify I got this!
Our next milestone (24 weeks) is a pretty big one in pregnancy terms...it's the age of viability. I really don't like saying that but thats the absolute earliest doctors will do anything to try and save a baby and that's a huge milestone.
I still have been really struggling with connecting to Bee. Like I've mentioned before, while I was pregnant with Jacob I did everything I could to protect my heart from another loss (which was stupid in the end, I was still in love with him) but pregnant with him I had feelings, I had a connection and at the time I tried to hide those. With Bee it is so different. I actually want to feel, anything at this point even some more anxiety in relations to this pregnancy but I haven't and this time it's not me actively trying to hide my feelings or emotions they just have not come yet.
Our first set of maternity pictures are set for Saturday (weather pending as we are doing them outside) I'm a bit excited. We have a few very special ideas in mind, you'll have to wait to see them though, it's another secret.It is suppose to rain though so I have a feeling we will have to reschedule.
And finally....I'm a bit confused. Last week on one of my pregnancy apps it said Bee was the size of a cantaloupe and now this week Bee is the size of a banana....now correct me if I am wrong but from my understanding a cantaloupe is by far much bigger than a banana....
Big Ole Belly at 20 weeks 4 days...this belly has 15 more weeks to go....can we say back pain is in the near future?
