Half Baked – 20 Week Update

Well, we have officially reached the halfway mark. I have my ultrasound scheduled for tomorrow so we can find out the gender and they will do the anatomy scan. To say I am nervous is an understatement. I just want everything to be okay, I don’t really care what the gender will be but I still think little Bean is a boy so we will see if I am right!

I still stand by my previous post, pregnancy sucks. I’ve made it a full 9 days without throwing up so I’m really excited about that. I mean, I’m still getting nauseous and dry heaving to the point that I just want to throw up but I guess it is progress. These hormones are absolutely wild though. I’m taking everything personally and looking way into what people say to me. I legit spent a whole morning crying because someone hurt my feelings and I was just so upset by it. I don’t think they meant to hurt me but that doesn’t mean I didn’t cry my heart out over it. I’ve now gone for three rounds of multiple kinds of blood tests. The second blood test picked up on antibodies that indicate that I have Hashimotos disease. That basically means my immune system attacks my thyroid. As long as I take my pills everything should be okay but it puts me at a higher risk of having preeclampsia. I’m being followed by an endocrinologist so we will see! I lost weight at my last appointment so my doctor so instead of going every four weeks, she wants to see me every three weeks so she can watch me to see if it happens again.

I still have a million things to do but I did sell my condo! I also mostly finished my registry! I would like to add in a couple of gender specific things to it when we find out but otherwise its all done and one less thing for me to stress about. Next I need to get my license and car switched over to Ontario. I also have to get a doctor all lined up for when I move and I have to look into a photographer for newborn pictures.

On the bright side, I think I started feeling the baby move! it kind of feels like.. a weird twitching feeling? I’m not 100% sure that is what I’m feeling still but it makes sense. It sort of feels like how people describe it and it isn’t consistent yet because it is too early for that still.

Mood: Tired, Sensitive, and lonely.

Cravings: Fruit by the foot, don’t judge me! The baby likes it and they usually move around after I eat one.

Dislikes: People. Am I allowed to say that? I’m lonely yet I don’t want to be around all the people offering my support. There are very few people I actually want to see, including my boyfriend. I can’t seem to spend enough time with him as I am still in Montreal and he is in Ottawa.

Here’s hoping things will get better..
