Baby H #2 Update: Weeks 4 To 22

   Hey y'all! I hope everyone's having a great Tuesday. I'm not ashamed to admit I'm most excited about Pretty Little Liars being on tonight. I was extremely disappointed to remember it wasn't coming on last week only an hour beforehand. I thought I'd give y'all an update on me and Baby H #2. But since I wasn't blogging from the beginning with this little one, let's start all the way back at 4 weeks.
    I took a pregnancy test on March 8th 2015 since my period was due any day then, but it was negative. Then just a few days later, on March 11th, I took another, and that test was positive! Of course being the girl I am I kept doing tests for a week. They were all positive. I'm OCD, so sue me!

This test is a week after I first found out.

5weeks 4days. (This is mostly bloat)

   I didn't have any symptoms before I found out since I was only 4 weeks and 2 days along. My first symptoms showed up around 5 weeks in the form of cramping, breast pain, headaches, and nausea. No actual throwing up, just constant, annoying nausea. Which in my opinion I'd rather just throw up.

   My 1st doctor appointment and ultrasound was at 7 weeks and 4 days on April 3rd, Good Friday! Everything looked good, but my doctor said he'd like to see us back the following Friday just to be super careful. In the first ultrasound all you could really see was the yolk sac but just a week later Baby H #2 was starting to look more like a fetus!

Here's the bump on April 6th at 8 weeks.
Here's Baby H #2 at 8 weeks and 4 days!

Here's the bump on April 14th at 9 weeks and a day. I popped really fast!

    We finally told everyone I was pregnant on April 23rd at 10 weeks and 3 days. We pretty much waited as long as we could but as you can see above, I was showing quite a bit haha! We did tell later than we did with James, with him we let people know at about 6 weeks, although I thought I was 8 weeks.

Here's the bump the day before we told everyone. Yeah there was no more time to wait!
    After that the next big thing to wait on would be Baby H #2's gender. We opted to do a new test that tests for different conditions early in pregnancy but it also had the benefit of finding out the gender at only 12 weeks. For a long time I felt like we were having a girl, but for a week or two before we found out I just knew it was a boy. I get the call on May 4th, and I was right! Dillon says he knew it was a boy too but I remember him saying in the beginning he thought girl, but whatever you say honey....

The bump the day after we found out it's a boy!!!
The bump on May 8th at 12 weeks and 4 days.

The bump on May 16th at 13 weeks and 5 days. This was my mom's birthday and the day before mine!

   It was pretty much smooth sailing around this time, not too many aches and pains. I started to feel movement around the latter part of the 16th week, no full on kicks, just fluttering. But now he's progressed to much bigger, harder kicks!
   Then at 17 weeks and 4 days Baby H #2 and I had our first ER trip. I was sitting in the living room around 6pm and I started experiencing some cramping and tightening of my belly. It kept on so to the ER we went. Everything turned out just fine, it was only Braxton Hicks contractions, although it was a little early to get them so they put me on bed rest for a few days.

Here I am at my doctor's office the next day, clearly relieved!

Baby H #2 at 19 weeks and a day.

   Our 2nd ER visit came at 20 weeks and 6 days due to spotting. I was taken to labor and delivery to be monitored. Unfortunately they had no one there to read an ultrasound. Okay. So my doctor(LOVE HIM) called and said he'd see me in the morning for an ultrasound in his office. Everything was fine, no early dilation and I had no more spotting.
20 weeks on June 29th.

20 weeks and 5 days on July 4th.
21 weeks and 3 days on July 9th.

   I did have a slight issue yesterday(I sound like a broken record haha) where I thought I could be leaking water, which is obviously bad. Thankfully my doctor could see me and was able to determine my waters were intact. So fingers crossed I have no more scares!
   I saw my doctor again today and the specialist(this appointment was scheduled weeks ago) and everything looks great! Baby H #2 is growing as expected and is already weighting a full pound!!! As for me I've been having major back pains since last week, nothing to be alarmed by though. Oh and indigestion started to rear it's ugly head at about 18 weeks. It's still here.
    Sorry for all the pictures, there was a lot of bump updates to include. Thanks for reading, and please keep us in your thoughts and prayers!
22 weeks and a day today!
