Today we officially met baby K .
Everything is looking really good and K looks amazing. Seeing that little heartbeat never gets old. Its amazing to know that you’re carrying a new little person. Seeing that heartbeat makes me quite teary.
After my first beta, my count was really high. It looks like K was just secreting a lot of hormones, or I was further than I thought (which I’m still trying to figure out… I’ve never been a good tracker).
According to the doctors measurements today, I’m already 9 weeks pregnant! That seems so far along already. Especially as I was convinced that I was only, maybe 7.5weeks. It puts K’s due date at 23 January.
I’m imagining that carrying in December/January is going to be pretty hot and uncomfortable… But that’s ok! Ill have to spend lots of time in the pool . And we won’t be going anywhere! Except air-conditioned shops
We’ve also decided that we won’t be having scans every month. In fact, my next appointment is only in the middle of September for my fetal assessment. Which is 13 weeks away. It feels weird doing it this way, but at the same time its liberating. Ill continue to pray and trust in God that everything is fine and healthy with K. Ill rely on faith and not on seeing. It should be interesting.
After 22 weeks, I’ll see the doctor at 28 and 34 weeks, then every second week for a check-up. This is going to be a whole new experience for me.
I’m finding I’m very tired this time around. But I think its a combination of pregnancy and not sleeping well due to jack’s op. Also before the op when all the kids were sick, sleep was minimal and lacking around here. I’ll get some proper sleep soon, I hope.
I’m feeling incredibly blessed! I’ve always wanted a big family, lots of kids running around, lots of noise, lots of snuggles, lots of fun, lots of love. And God has blessed us with that. I’m feeling very loved up and happy right now.
