21 Week Update & Anatomy Scan – Second Pregnancy

21 weeks and 4 days today. I decided to just wait until after my appointment to write this blog so that I can get the anatomy scan update out sooner! The 22 week blog will probably just be a bit short 🙂

Yesterday was our anatomy scan! My group doesn’t have ultrasound at their office so they refer patients out to a specialist for their scans. Annoying, but it is what it is! To be honest, I LOVED the doctor we met. He was super thorough and discussed EVERYTHING about the anatomy scan with us. The wait time was a BIT excessive. We were there almost 3 hours. I think he was worth the wait though! I also had to go to see my midwife afterwards so I was super late for that appointment but they were very accommodating and understanding. The care that we get down in Boca isn’t comparable to the care we get in our city. I’m so glad we chose to switch and I’m more and more comfortable with my decision as these weeks go by. Everyone is SO nice and we haven’t had a “rude” encounter with anyone as of yet.

The anatomy scan went VERY well! Wes is measuring a whopping 1 pound 1 ounce already! He’s big and strong! The specialist said my placenta is located in an optimal position if he had to choose any location for it. Wes is looking fantastic! He is SO cute. He was yawning and touching his face and doing the sweetest little movements. The tech gave us about 10 pictures which I LOVE. One was of him with his hand under his cheek looking straight at us LOL He’s getting ready for his modeling career 😉 He was very active the entire time, until we needed to get pictures of his heart. He finally came around though and all was well!

I’ve been feeling pretty good other than having some MAJOR pain in my feet. No swelling, just pain. It honestly feels like I have been walking Disney World… you know that ache in your feet when you finally get back to the hotel after walking all day? Like that, but I’m just waking up in the morning -__- After posting an SOS on my Instagram story, a DEAR friend of mine suggested getting OOFOs. While I think they are pretty ugly, they were worth EVERY penny. I have had minimal pain. I wear them out and around the house. No more walking on the tile bare foot! PT really helped with the pain as well so I’ve been MUCH more comfortable! I love how much I’ve been taking charge of my body this time around. It’s so worth it to feel comfortable while being pregnant.
