17 Week Update, First Appointment With New Office – Second Pregnancy

snapseed-5

I am completely and utterly exhausted so writing this is painful and it’ll probably be shorter lol This heat is really killing me. I think the pregnancy just amplifies it but MAN am I OVER IT. We ran a lot of errands today so I’m just wiped out. But I am committed to writing these!

Week 17 has arrived. Overall, I’ve been feeling GREAT this past week. Physical therapy has been life changing. It is helping me SO much and I haven’t had a bad headache in about a week. That is a huge difference from experiencing them every day. Symptoms have been minimal since my body has been feeling more flexible and relaxed. I really enjoy going and I love the time to myself as well! The office has a great atmosphere and they have a zen room that his wife uses for birthing classes. There are positive birth affirmations and words of encouragement everywhere. Like I said in my last blog, this office is perfect for me. I’m so glad we found this place.

I had my first actual appointment in the new office in Boca! My midwife spent a LOT of time with us and was extremely patient with Peyton which was also a plus. They loved her, of course. Everything is looking great so far. They don’t do ultrasounds at that office, unfortunately, so I have to wait for a call to schedule the anatomy scan in a couple weeks! We are really excited about seeing our little man!

Aaron bought me an early birthday gift, my new diaper bag (as you can see in the featured photo). I wanted something bigger and more organized now that I’ll be carrying things for TWO babies. I LOVE Itzy Ritzy so of course I had to get one of their bags 😉 He also took some PTO this week so I’m excited to do some fun things as a family!
