The photo above is us just a day or two before our 20 week mark taking in the scenery and documenting our pregnancy at Inchedonney beach ❤️
Today was the second time we got to see our little bundle of joy on the scan screen. Baby Rowe was ALOT more active at our 20 week then the 12 week scan… The doctor put on that cold jelly and started moving the thing around my tummy and straight away we both got to see our baby’s legs going mad lol kicking and moving and its hands and head 😍 it was such a relief because I was feeling so worried and really needed to see our baby to be reassured. Below is our 12 week scan ❤️
Basically between the hormones and just being in my own head over thinking everything (which sometimes I do) I just found it hard to switch off that feeling of “oh god will everything be okay” especially since being a first time mom I’m not 100% sure I’ve felt any movement yet even thou I’ve researched it so many times and knew it was normal not to feel anything for some moms till as late as 25 weeks … I was just thinking the worst because we really have been so so lucky with everything so far which we are so grateful for and definitely do not take for granted… You just hear so many scary stories of how couples hopes and dreams for there babies are smashed and destroyed before baby is even born and so I just wanted to be reassured that everything was 100% okay for us ❤️ Below is our 20 week scan.
Our appointment was at 9:50…. We waited and waited and finally got seen at 12 and we were out the door at 12:30 I’d say! To be fair the hospital was absolutely crazy and I think it’s fair to say there are a lot of new babies due for January & February 2017 😍 since I got to see our baby on that screen I cannot wipe this cheesy smile of my face😍 I actually feel so in love it’s crazy…. Our baby is wriggling mad in my tummy and I hope to feel it’s movements soon 🙌🏻 were going to be a Mammy and Daddy…. It’s beginning to feel more and more real… Our next appointment is on the 29th of December so by then we will only have two months left… Once Christmas is here the time is just going to fly by which it has been doing already! Also I’m literally documenting everything on my snapchat so if you’d like to add me my username is Colliiiee
Bottom line is Baby Rowe we CANNOT wait to meet you 😍💙💜
Lots of Love, Peace & Happiness
Yup I’m 17 weeks closer to meeting my baby 😍…. How bizarre is that? I Nichole Corcoran, will soon have a little baby in my arms, and my own little family like jeez it’s just crazy!
How am I feeling… Well the huge plus is that I haven’t vomited like at all which I am so happy with… I have been feeling queasy and sick but haven’t actually gotten sick… A few girls contacted me through Snapchat, Facebook & Instagram who have similar due dates to ours and a few of them have said they’ve been none stop vomiting and can’t even eat 😳 the poor things, even reading it I was in bits imagining trying to work and carry on your daily routine while non stop throwing up! Some women are just troopers and I applaud you all ❤️🙌🏻
My tummy is growing and it’s so strange to see a bump and even feeling it… I can only imagine when it starts getting bigger and gets really hard! Before I got pregnant I was actually at the heaviest weight I’ve ever been… I just really could not loose it I had no motivation what so ever and I even got stretch marks because let me be real… I’ve been gaining and loosing weight since I’m younger… Constantly yo yo dieting… But never got to the size I was before pregnancy so my skin just had enough and couldn’t deal with the gaining and loosing so quickly! I was really down because of it and my weight but I’ve out all that begins me now and I’m happy with my body like hello it’s growing a human being right now and I know I will get back to being healthy when this little cutie comes along and loose it in a healthy way this time no fast fad diets! I’ve found I need to keep snacks with me to pick on throughout the day and a bottle of water because I get super thirsty so I try to have rice cakes in my bag at all times lol. I rest a lot more then i used to but when I’m working I don’t feel tired until I finish up which is great… So when I get home I just totally relax 😍
At 17 weeks I’ve read that baby can recognise your voice how cute is that 😍 and that between 17-22 is when mom feels babies first kicks… I’ve never been so excited to be kicked 😂😂😂
My 20 week scan is coming up and were looking forward to that because it’s just another milestone Yano? All these things make it more real because I don’t know if it’s just me or is it everyone but it still doesn’t feel completely real? I don’t think it will sink in until we have our baby in our arms in 23 weeks time…. Jeez that even sounds like very little time… Honestly before I was even pregnant I always had this fear of when i would give birth in the future… I’m soooo scared 😓 right now I just haven’t been thinking about it but God Im gonna have to think about it soon so I can prepare!
Until next time,
Lots of Peace, Love & Happiness
