Well, here's the belly at 30 weeks! I can't believe it, but she'll really be here before we know it! So exciting! Dr appt this Thursday, but it should be a pretty quick one. And...the heartburn is doing better....Yea! :-)

Oh Heartburn....How I Loathe thee!!!!!

So I have been struggling with heartburn since practically the day I found out I was pregnant. I had NEVER in my life had a moment of heartburn before, but now...we'll its with me every day. At first I just did TUMS or Rolaids then I was sick of that and ok'd it with my doctor to start Zantac. I just take the Zantac 75mg dose (the OTC dose) once daily and since about 27 weeks that's not cutting it anymore either. It doesn't matter what I WILL cause "the burn".

So...I'm either going to have to switch to Zantac 150mg or try something else. Its making it hard to eat anything because I know I'll be hurting afterward and it makes sleeping not so fun either. I pray this goes away after she is born!

And...I do know about the myth that heartburn means a baby with lots of hair, but I didn't have any until I was 2 yrs old and at my 4d sono last week the sonographer said so far Morgan only has a tiny bit of fuzz on the back of her head. So, I think its totally a myth, but we'll see soon enough!

And for the record.....I have had such a great and wonderful pregnancy and I've really enjoyed being pregnant, so even if I didn't have anything to take at all for heartburn....She would definitely be worth it!!!!! :-)

29 week update and 4d ultrasound pics

Thursday night we had a 4d ultrasound! It was so fun to see her moving around and yawning. She is already getting some cute little fat cheeks and I love that! The sonographer said it doesn't look like she has any hair.....which is what I expected, so we'll just have to see.

It is so surreal to actually SEE her. I can't wait to get my hands on her!!!

I also had a dr. appt yesterday and things are going great! My belly is back to measuring on track and they said she is measuring right on track as well. Based on sono measurements they think she is about 2lbs 14oz right now. I still have only gained 11 lbs total, but my dr isn't worried about it since she is growing perfectly....I guess maybe its to be expected because my mom didn't gain much at all during her pregnancies either. (but who knows, I could still gain quite a bit in the next 11 weeks)

Here are a few pics of her....enjoy!

28 weeks and Pics of Morgan's Room!!!!

Well...we've officially entered the 3rd trimester! I'm now 28 weeks! I have an ultrasound and dr appt this Friday, so we'll get to see about how much she is weighing now. She is still very active and I LOVE every kick and movement!!!! I'm starting to have a little trouble getting comfortable and sleeping at night, but other than that...we're doing great!

And, here are the pics of Morgan's Room....its even cuter in person. I'm really happy with how it turned out!

Big baby????

Today was my 26 week appt. I am actually 26 weeks 5 days today, so almost 27 weeks, but my belly measured at 28 weeks today. My weight gain has been great....I'm only up 11 lbs total so far. Morgan was her usual active self during my visit and kicked the doppler monitor when she was checking her heartbeat! I think she's going to be quite a mess!! Anyway, my doctor seems to think she may be a little bigger than average so we'll do a quick sono at my next appt in 2 weeks to get an idea. She also said that I might be measuring a little big because my weight gain was so low at first that maybe she just finally had a growth spurt and will level off now. long as she and I are both healthy, I'm happy! (but hopefully she won't be as big as her daddy when he was born....9 lbs...ahh)

Now, I start going every 2 weeks! Crazy, huh? She'll be here before we know it!

26 weeks......and Growing!

Oh, my belly is growing so fast now! I took my 21 week picture in this same shirt....5 weeks makes a BIG difference! I'm starting to get scared that I'm going to get huge!

I have my doctor's appt this week (Thursday)...pray I'm measuring well and everything is still right on track!
