22 weeks in photoGood morning!
I decided that today I would answer a few of the questions I received in the comments of the last post as well as just a general update on how everything is going.
1. How long did it take us to get pregnant?
Ivan and I got pregnant after just two months of trying. I know that it can take a lot longer than that and I feel very lucky that it happened so quickly for us. I was paying very close attention to my cycle (too much information?) and I think that helped us.
2. Are you going to dress the baby in vintage?
I hope so! As of right now I have zero pieces of baby vintage but I will be keeping my eyes peeled for sure.
3. Are you going the doctor route or midwives, doulas?
We would like to have a home birth so we went with midwives and I am so happy with our decision. Mine are great and I have been enjoying my appointments. I think that doulas can be really great but because of my personality and personal preferences I don't plan on having one.
4. Are you going with any kind of theme? (I assume this means a theme for the baby room)
Not really. We would like to have nice white walls with lots of colourful things in the room. I think it will look really cool.
5. Have you had the toxoplasmosis test?
No. I mentioned it to my doctor and she didn't think it was necessary. I think that my doctor is great and I trust her opinion so I didn't push for one. Ever since we started trying to get pregnant Ivan has been on litterbox duty. It's pretty awesome.
So this past week was pretty good. I have been feeling much less tired in general but as I mentioned I did have a wave of exhaustion (and extra hunger) hit me Wednesday and Thursday. I am feeling back to normal now which is great. In general though I have been going to bed really early still but I don't mind.
As far as movement, I found out at my 20 week ultrasound that I have an anterior placenta so anything I have been feeling is either really low or muffled. It will take longer before I can really feel him moving around but apparently he is very active. I can't wait to see little feet pushing on my stomach.
That's about all! I'll talk to you guys Monday, have a good weekend!
