22 weeks & Christmas Photos!

I'm 22 weeks! Ducky is moving so much these days! I just love it. I'm trying to savour every moment of this pregnancy (its hard with #2!!) becuase we really aren't sure if there will be a third little one for us or not. I can't even THINK about this being my last baby but I'm trusting my heart will know when our family is complete. Luckily at just 28 we have many years to decide! My cervix is still short, and I'm continuing to have a lot of cramps and pressure; because of this Dr.J decided its best if I am off work for now. He also started me on progesterone to try and help settle my cramps. I need Ducky to keep growing in there! Perhaps next week I will post another comparison photo from last time!
Its hard to be on modified bedrest with a two year old at home, however, I can't say how WONDERFUL Logan has been! He spends lots of time snuggling, reading and doing quiet play beside me. He brings me his diapers to change him. And he has been spending a lot more time in indepdent play, his imagination is amazing. He is the best gift I've ever been given.
Les and I are trying to sort thru soem dynamics. I'm trying my hardest to rest, he understands the need for this, but at the same time he works all day and finds it hard to come home to things being disorganized (which things very much are these days!).
I trust we will find the right balance!
Here are Logan's Christmas photos!! I LOVE them! They are by Focal Point Photography, I just can't belive what a big boy he looks like in them!!

And we went to see Santa! He was SO excited and did amazing! What a difference from last year! My boy is growing up FAR too quickly! He told Santa that he would like a tow truck! This is going to be such a magical Christmas with him!

21 weeks & ultrasound pics!

I was 21 weeks last week! I actually LOST 3 pounds at my last appointment, so that only puts me up about 3 or 4 pounds so far. I'm not having any huge cravings yet and other then headaches I've been feeling pretty good. The cramping that I had last week subsided with rest, but on Monday when I went back to work they picked up again. So as of now I'm home resting waiting to see my OB on Friday, I'm not really sure which direction things will go in from there. I may be on bedrest or I may be working, the good thing is my cervix is closed and long, so who knows what these cramps are about. Being up and doing a lot makes them worse for sure.
Here's the pictures from our last ultrasound! We stayed strong and the sex of Ducky is still a surprise!
He or she was sucking their cute little thumb!
And here's a sweet little profile shot! I can' tbelieve 4 more months and we will have 2 little ones in this home! Crazy

20 weeks & feeling festive!

I'm half way through this pregnancy (at least!) Here are two photots, the one above is my regular weekly photo and the one below is from a Holiday Party we went to over the weekend.
Everything is still good. We had a bit of a scare yesterday. I started with some spotting and cramping and pressure. It persisted over the evening and so when Les got home from work we headed into L&D triage. I was lucky that Dr.J happened to be on call. He did a quick ultrasound and Ducky looked great. Strong heartbeat and breech (he or she better flip!)
My placenta looks low and he thinks there may be a clot causing the bleeding. I'm off work for the week. I have my "big" ultrasound tomorrow and see him Friday. Hoping for the all clear then.
On Sunday we went to my work Christmas party for the kids. Logan had a great day, we all did!
They had animals and he got to pet a baby kangaroo!
As well as some bunnies!
He even sat on Santa and didn't cry! The present Santa gave him may have helped!
IT made us all very excired for the holidays! Logan is a magical age this year and we are so excited for the season!
Here is our little family, next year there will be another little person in this photo!
