Little buddy gave us quite the scare this week. I'll just start by saying he has been moving and kicking normally, so I didn't even think anything could be wrong. I went in for my normal checkup and my doctor measured me and felt my stomach and said baby boy was already head down. All great! but when he went to listen to his heartbeat, he listened for so long! i was like... "What the heck is going on!!" Turns out, that Baby's heartbeat was on the low end of normal and dipping down.
Doc sent us down to labor and delivery to do a NST. Baby was moving and actually had a great heart rate during it, but he didn't do his two active episodes, like they wanted and still had some dipping in his heart rate.
Because of all this, they sent me in for an ultrasound. Turns out everything was fine, he just wasn't into performing for everyone ;) Runs in the family with Ingersoll boys I guess.
He weighs around 4 and 3/4 pounds and is 17 inches long. He's active as ever and we still can't wait to meet him.
I keep having this thought that he's going to come early. Whether its intuition or wishful thinking I don't know haha. But this weeks events really put it in my mind that he really could come anytime!
This week was rough for me with pelvic pain, so I only got in 1 cardio and 2 resistance workouts. Still feel really great for accomplishing that!
Pelvic pain is the worst! I also had a hemorrhoid this week, for the first time ever. And that is actually the worst thing ever. But this all means Baby is getting lower and growing, so I'll (almost gladly) deal with it. Feeling much better after two days of pain. Woohoo.
I bought halloween candy this week haha. very delicious. I also ate all the kit kats out of the bag because, no self control with those things...
A favorite recipe, that we've been making a lot is broccoli, cauliflower rice and chicken potstickers. So delicious and very easy to make!
I threw my first birthday party for Sawyer this week. He turned 2 on the 10th. He's such a big boy! We had a rocket ship themed party and he had his favorite friends over. I will post pictures of it this week! I'm just really proud because it turned out so cute, and everyone had so much fun.
Nesting is in full swing, as I'm finally finishing up our living room! we've lived in this house for 2 years and were finally getting things styled and decorated! Painting our front door, and the two guest bathrooms are on the docket to do for the next few weeks!
