Bumpdate- Week 21

I got this cute idea from Jessica Jessica Lynn Writes. She always includes the cutest pictures each week and I will start doing a picture next week. I have sucked so far, but I do do youtube weekly updates, so ill include my video here in case you want to see what happens each week. 

How far along: 21 weeks (21 weeks 6 days today). 1

Fun facts: Zoey is the size of a carrot this week and weighs under a pound (I feel it too)! Her lady parts are almost totally formed now and her eyebrows and eyelids are developing. Crazy! She also has most of her eggs that she will need in adult-hood. That is insane!

How big is the baby: This week, Babycenter says she is the length of a carrot and weighs 3/4 of a pound.

Sleep: I'm getting about 7-8 hours a night, which is getting me by. I feel like I can use a nap throughout the day, though.

Best moment of the week: The Anatomy scan was nice, because we got to see you. You were being ornery and sleeping with the back of your head to us so we didn't get what we needed. I had a scare with low amniotic fluid though, so I'm pumping water like crazy! I also enjoyed cleaning out your nursery and getting your crib :)

Food Cravings: I haven't noticed any real serious cravings this week other than Reeses. Not every day though.

Food aversions:
 None luckily.

Movement: She's been an active little thing this week, but it is off and on. I've notced her a lot around lunch time and late at night. She's a night owl!

Gender: Girl! We haven't had the midwife give us a 2nd confirmation, but I have no doubt considering you had your legs by your face during the gender scan and we clearly saw your parts :)

What I really miss: Coffee and seafood! Mostly coffee tho!

Most worried about: About the amniotic fluid levels. I hope me downing my required water will help and all will be well Friday at the redo scan.

I'm looking forward to: Seeing you again on Friday and hoping you are showing off for mommy and daddy. 

Anything else? We will be putting up your crib tonight, so you nursery is coming together :)

Our Recent Life in Pictures

Woo! I need to stop neglecting this blog so much, it has been a good breather for me. What has been going on with us? Too much! Too much to bore everyone with words, but how about pictures? I know that's what I prefer to see on other's blogs. From this moment on, i'm going to try and post at least once a week on here sharing everything from baby things and things I pick up shopping :)

Found out we were going to be parents! September 2012.

Baby Haas' photo debut. Heartbeat a strong 176 -10 weeks.

I fell in love the first time I heard your little heartbeat. 

Gender reveal at 18 weeks- it's a girl!

Her little legs were up by her face. Very proud of showing off the goods :).18 weeks

Gender reveal party- it's a girl!

Zoey is the size of a carrot this week and almost weighs a pound!

In other news... I went to the doctor last Wednesday and had a scare with my amniotic fluid level being too low. It was an emotional, punch in the gut. I cried in the parking lot for a good hour after the appointment and felt like an idiot for putting Zoey in harm from my stupid, selfish ways. The midwife (who is amazing by the way) had to do a pelvic exam on me (which sucked!) to check and make sure my water hadn't broke, luckily it hadn't. We think it's low because I haven't been drinking my water like I am supposed to and that I was dehydrated. I go back Friday to be rechecked and to see if drinking water solves everything. 

I have bee drinking about 3 liters of water a day and not much else. I've been peing like crazy, so I know I was dehyrated. I feel so much better being hydrated though. I also had to do a gender/growth scan, but Zoey was being ornery and slept the whole time. We didn't see her face or much else because she had the back of her head towards us and was curled up in a ball. Hopefully she chooses to be more active Friday, but we would appreciate prayers, it's been scary. She is very healthy and strong, so that's a plus for us.

In better news, we've started on the nursery, so I will be posting pics of it the next few days. I am proud of it, it's super cute!  I'll be buying lots of great stuff in the next month or so. I am excited to share the journey from here on out with you guys. Pregnancy has been go to me so far :)

I am also going back to school, so pray for me there too lol.

Hope all is well with you all!
