So today I had my 20 week big scan. It took FOREVER! Like over an hour. I had a medical student doing it and she was really stressing me out b/c she was contorting her face all over the place! Now I realize she was just concentrating really hard! Then the real tech came in and made me much more comfortable! Everything looked great, measured great, baby was very active! I can't believe I'm not feeling more movement than I am! The only "concern" was that I have a low lying placenta but it is not even THAT low so she said it will probably fully move out of the way and I won't need a c-section. In fact she said she would bet her RRSP'S that I won't need a c-section due to the placenta. But, on the upside, I get an extra u/s at about 30 weeks to double check it! woo hoo!
And without further ado.....It looks like we are having a GIRL!!!! I gotta say...I knew it! ha ha!
Anyways, I had a great week/weekend since it was my littlest sister's wedding. We had a lot of fun and I was definitely showing so it was exciting to see a lot of old family friends and relatives who I don't see often and didn't know I was pregnant. I had a great weekend but I'm exhausted now!
In terms of weight gain: phew...i gained zero from my 16 week appt and the doc didn't seemed concerned! I was worried I would see another 10 pound gain like I did during the first trimester!
In terms of belly growth: it's big now. Fully out. Belly button is starting to push out and I am going to have to take out my belly ring soon for sure! A lot of my old t-shirts are getting too short!
In terms of symptoms: heart burn. Big time. This week I woke up choking on my own bile. DISGUSTING and painful! I got the ok from the doc today to take liquid gaviscon or malox. I'm going to buy some today for sure! Nothing else really except when I sit for a long time I feel really cramped in my abdomen area.
What I miss: NOTHING!!!!
I'm off to finish reading my current fave book: The girl with the dragon tattoo
It starts a bit slow but I highly reccommend it !
And I leave you with a few pics from my beautiful sister's wedding!!
