Letters to Baby K - Week 14


Well, I made it through the first week of my second trimester...phew! My first trimester definitely wasn't a joy ride, but I'm sure it could have been worse. I survived solely on Zofran for a few weeks because none of the nausea tips were working. Eating crackers, drinking ginger ale, phi bands, ginger...none of it really worked as well at the Zofran. The nausea has definitely started to disappear and my energy is returning, somewhat. Hopefully week 14 is the magic week!

So, last week we did our 1st trimester screening which went really well. I had no idea until the actual sonogram that they look at the baby's nasal bone as an indication for whether or not the baby could possibly have Downs Syndrome. I guess I never really realized that children with Downs lack the nasal bone structure that children without Downs have, but it does make sense now that I know! Baby K's nasal bone was present and prominent, so no worries there, and the measurements of the neck looks great! We're still waiting on the results from the blood tests, but I'm not too worried.

This past weekend I actually felt amazing when I woke up Saturday so the Hubby and I went to breakfast at one of our favorite spots in downtown McKinney. I went nuts and order a Belgian waffle with chocolate chips, along with scrambled eggs and bacon, yum!! After we went shopping at some of our favorite antique shops looking for the perfect dresser/changing table. We hit the jackpot and found a beautiful Robin's Egg Blue/Teal solid wood antique 12 drawer French dresser! It was a little out of my price range, but the Hubby encouraged me to buy it since it was exactly what I had been looking for. He's a keeper!! ;) I will definitely post pictures of the nursery when we're all done! We were even able to clean out my ENTIRE craft room which we are turning into the nursery. It was no easy feat, trust me! Do you know how much crafting supplies I have?? A LOT! Luckily, the man cave closet is big enough to share with my Hubby and all of his hunting and computer stuff. I know what you're thinking, you gave up your craft room!? GASP! Seriously, I don't mind in the slightest! I knew it would one day be turned into a nursery and in all honestly I never really even crafted in there! I mostly used it for the storage for my craft and supplies and did my crafting all over the house, haha!

And in other baby progress news, Baby K is now the size of a Nectarine!...mmmm fruit, haha! Baby K is about 3.5 to 4 in from crown to rump and weighs about one ounce. So many other cool things are happening this week too like nails growing, baby practicing breathing, and even sucking it's thumb! My tummy is definitely growing and I can even tell that my belly button is becoming more shallow, freaky! I am up 4 pounds...but I think most of it is bloating lol. I hope to only gain about 20 to 25 lbs since I am so small, I don't think I need to gain much more than that.

I am most looking forward to our baby gender reveal shower in 14 days, hosted by my friend, Mandy, and really excited to see how she reveals it! She has given me no clues so that literally everything is a complete surprise!

See you next week for the start of week 15!!

  3. I was a HIV-AIDS patient and I got it from cheating on my wife. It was sort of a payback but a week later I was told by a friend that the person who I cheated with had the HIV-AIDS virus and did not tell me. I was so stupid by not using a condom I thought since he was an old school friend he was trustworthy. But I was wrong. I cried and cried. Two days later, I got a phone call from my friend and he told me about a person who is known by another friend, who can help me. I could not let my wife know what I was going through. I finally got his email address: oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com and I emailed this man my story and he replied me immediately saying i should be calm and told me that everything will be OK. I could not come to terms with what I was hearing but then I concluded it did not matter because I was so broken I just needed help. I was going out of my mind literally. I was confused with what he was telling me, but I listened. He told me about some materials i need to buy that he needed to cast the spell and I said OK. I bought the materials to him, I sent down my picture to him and my positive result sheet and he replied me that i am going to be negative under 3days. I message Him every 2hours for 2day and I knew he thought that I was crazy but I did care I needed a shoulder. Behold, the third day he messaged me i should go for a test that i will be negative. My marriage could be broken because of a stupid mistake and my life was on the line. I remembered when I was going to get the results of my re-test I called him up again and told him that I was going to get my results today and his reply was “so" and that everything will be as he explained. I knew then that he was getting tired of me calling him, maybe I was wrong. Well I got my results and the first person I called was him - again. As he said hello I started to cry and cry. I could not believe it. I was given a second chance in life.This man is a great spiritual HIV/AIDS healer, his healing spell on aids healing is very powerful .please brothers and sister, contact Dr Ose oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com
