Our Crazy Life

21 Weeks!

Posted on: April 28, 2010

Well, I haven’t updated this blog in FOR-EV-ERRR! 

 I’m having another baby! 🙂 Bella is going to be a sister!  His name is Ryder Patrick – which makes his initials RPM… how fitting for a little boy huh!?  I love it!  

This week marks me 21 weeks pregnant and I am loving it.  He is sooo active now, I literally feel like he is doing flips and it’s such an awesome feeling.  I didn’t feel Bella like this until 27 weeks so this is a bit earlier than I had expected.  Every morning Bella puts her head on my belly and snuggles me while she is still trying to wake up… and Ryder moves like crazy. It’s so cute watching Bella react to him kicking her in the head lol.. and she always greets me in the morning by saying “Hi mommy, Hi Ryder”… ahh! It melts my heart!

This pregnancy has been EXTREMELY different than my pregnancy with Bella… I never got sick with Bella and with this one, any little thing can trigger me to barf. Mainly if I cough too hard or when I am brushing my teeth and gag, yep… that sets it off.  I get heart burn practically every night… I never go to bed without a water bottle & my bottle of tums next to the bed.  And my bladder? Holy weakness it’s like the size of a peanut!  I have been waking up about 2 times a night since I was 13 weeks… it’s insane!  That rarely happened to me with Bella until about the very last couple of weeks but I literally feel like I go pee on the hour!  I do drink a crazy amount of water because I constantly feel dehydrated so I guess that’s why! lol 🙂  Headaches are crazy, like one minute I can feel a little pressure and then all of a sudden it’s in my eyes and I just want to lay down.  It really sucks when I have them bad because I will be laying down and I go to stand up & get uber dizzy… blah!  Allergies suck too!  Every morning I wake up feeling like I have a head cold.   But, my cervix is still holding  strong!!  I am praying that it continues to stay strong and no bed rest will be needed.  I got put on bed rest at 24 weeks with Bella and was told that I had an “incompetant cervix”… but, my doc says that every pregnancy is different so, fingers crossed he is right and this little guy will be carried full term like his sister but, without strict bed rest! 🙂

I have only gained about 4lbs but my belly is growing so fast!! My biggest cravings are green grapes, apples, orange juice & rainbow sherbert! Oh, and I could eat mexican food everyday if I had no self control… pretty much the same cravings I had with Bella except I didn’t want apples or orange juice quite as much.  I literally eat an apple a day!  Sometimes two 🙂 

I will end this post with a few belly pictures… til next time!
