20 & 21 Week Belly Shots

I've officially swallowed a basketball... that is slowly mutating into a watermelon.  Interesting things are happenin'.

{20 Weeks}

{21 Weeks}

It's incredibly scary thinking that we could have our little guy here with us in about 14 to 15 weeks if the previa does not move. It's scary for a lot of reasons.  Mainly, we will have our very own baby! But also, we could potentially have a premie.  I want him here with us more than ever, but I don't want him here until he is supposed to be.  I casually joked around for the first few months of the pregnancy that I wanted him to come two weeks early so that I could have a little more than a month with him before I have to go back to school.  I take that back.  I don't want him here early, I want him here healthy.  I don't want to deal with the NICU.  I want him with me from the second he's born.  No nursery for us, no NICU for us.  

I officially feel like a hypochondriac, but I ended up calling my doctor last night and then going into L & D to get checked for leaking fluid.  {TMI} My underwear were consistently getting damp for about two hours last night -- weird.  I waited it out and it kept happening and my bladder was e.m.p.t.y. so I did what I thought was best.  Thankfully, nothing was wrong but they did see when they did the ultrasound that my previa is still ever so present. Boo. So I guess I'm just peeing myself, or something, I don't know. 


  1. Prayers to you and your pregnancy. Just take it slow and easy. As much as couch potato sounds good to some, I know personally it just isn't! Keep us posted, and TMI? pa-lease any woman that has been pregnant reading this is saying yep been there, yep it could get worse, and FYI it doesn't stop after pregnancy ;)

  2. Isn't the sheer magic of a pregnant body the most beautiful thing in the world? Hope your pregnancy goes well, it can be a very scary time, but don't let the fear rule. I'm stopping by from The Wiegands and am so excited to be your newest follower!

    Happy Friday!

  3. I would call the Doctor about everything also! Better safe than sorry. Cute belly!!
