Baby Wigginton #2’s 21 Week Ultrasound

Baby girl is looking good! They said everything was normal. She weighs about 1 lb 4 oz (I think that’s what I was told), which is an average 23 week weight, so she’s a little big. Ben was just a little bit bigger at this point, but we’re going to plan on another bigger than […]

2-4 months

So, our last post was a while ago. It’s like we’ve been busy or something! I’ve been back at work full time, Casey has been busy with work, and we moved into our new house at the end of January. Actually, we still don’t have all of our stuff moved but we’re working on it. […]

2 months!

Ben is 2 months old today and I can’t believe it!  We visited the doctor today and found out he’s big. Is anyone surprised? He weighed 13 pounds 4 ounces and he’s 24.5 inches long. He is at the 85th percentile for weight and the 95th for length and head circumference. The doctor was very […]

Come out, Ben! We’re ready to meet you! I got put on bed rest as of Friday due to my blood pressure. I’m hoping Ben will come sooner rather than later, because bed rest is boring! It’s hard to stay down ALL day when you feel fine. We see the doctor on Wednesday and we’re […]

  Full Term!  It won’t be long now.  We can’t wait! 9/24 – Baby Update: We had an ultrasound today.  We’ve determined that information based on ultrasounds is worthless.  The ultrasound estimation says he shrunk over the past four weeks.  The doctor and images say he’s growing at a healthy rate.  The doctor thinks he […]

  Just 5 weeks to go! We’re still getting the typical comments about looking past due, etc. We saw the doctor today. I measured 39 weeks. My BP is starting to get a little higher, but the doctor isn’t worried about it yet. She doesn’t want to see me again for 2 weeks and then […]

  Feeling fairly good these days. It’s already hurting to walk…so I guess I can look forward to that for the next 11 weeks or so. The good news is that Ben appears to just be genetically big because I passed my diabetes screen last week.

Ben’s 4D Ultrasound

We had a good visit with the doctor today. Ben is still big, as expected. He’s measuring 31 weeks and his estimated weight is 3 lbs, 13 oz. According to the internet, the average baby is about 2.5 lbs right now.  I’m measuring 35 weeks, which explains people acting like I’ve lost my mind when I […]

    Well, I’ve been feeling human again…but with horrible heartburn and still having to take zofran most days because I lost my patience for all day gagging and nausea a long time ago. Just about 3 and a half months to go! People at work (and random people I don’t know) ask almost daily […]

23 Weeks

Week 23! Saturday I actually felt good. That is literally the first day I’ve had that I haven’t felt terrible for at least part of the day. It was nice! I’m not magically cured, though, because Sunday was pretty unpleasant again. One other new thing last week was swelling. Bye, bye wedding rings 🙁

  It’s a brand new week! More than one person at work told me how much bigger I look today. I’m just hoping I didn’t get too much bigger and that I won’t hear about it from my doctor again this time.  It’s going to be an exciting week because we should find out if […]

20 Weeks

    Halfway there! Some lady in Walmart today told me I look “precious.” I didn’t feel too precious, so that was nice. Baby celebrated 20 weeks by kicking hard enough that Casey could feel it. That was pretty cool.  We’re getting so excited to know if it’s a boy or a girl! As an […]

  Week 15! Starting to feel just a tad better…usually. I did an accidental social experiment at work.  A coworker I see every day didn’t know I was pregnant, but I thought she did. This is apparently how pregnant you have to look for someone to ask you about it.

  Welcome, second trimester!!! Everyone promises the sickness will end soon…but mine shows no signs of stopping. However, I can usually stay up past 8, which is a big improvement from weeks 6-8. Most days I can even make it home before I have to eat dinner, which is another big improvement over weeks 6-8. […]

  It’s week 13! We had an appointment this week, but no ultrasound this time. The heart rate was 160. And despite how big I’m starting to look, I’ve only gained 4.5 pounds. The doctor was happy, and we’re happy. I think I’m getting sicker instead of better…but still happy.
