I’m seeing a lot of doctors for this pregnancy and while some of this post will mention my pregnancy it is about the other important person in my life: my husband Alex. We saw the high risk obstetrician yesterday and while he said he saw no signs of birth defects but due to my weight,… Continue reading Doctors, Doctors, and More Doctors
I’m 2 days away from being 18 weeks pregnant. Yep, almost half way there. So far, all the ultrasounds look good but unfortunately, I had a lot of belly fat before the baby was in there so it makes some of the more recent ultrasounds unclear although they can always find the heart beat and… Continue reading Pregnancy 2nd Trimester: Being Pregnant is Disgusting!
