16 weeks and kinesiology

16 weeks and still pregnant!

I had another doppler scan on Friday and there was still a heartbeat, so things are looking good!

I also had another kinesiology session where we connected with bubs and found out how things were for him/her.  I just flipped through my previous posts and realised that I hadn't talked about the first appointment!

So, I've been seeing a kinesiologist for many years now.  She is an amazing woman who has gradually changed my life!

A few weeks ago, I had my first appointment with this pregnancy and for the first time in any of my pregnancies, we were able to tune into bubs and see what he/she wanted or needed or had to say.  The fact that we could do this was just so amazing to me and really helped me to feel much more secure in the pregnancy.

In this appointment, Carolyn first asked if bubs wanted or needed anything.  All he/she wanted to was to make sure that he/she took on more of Dave's DNA as he/she grew.  Bubs wanted that for us, to ensure that there was more of Dave in him/her than there was of our donor.  I thought that was just the loveliest thing to ask for and to want for us.  What a beautiful, generous soul is our bubs!

In the second appointment. bubs said that he/she was really aware of my fears and tuning into my fears for him/her as well as some other fears in my life.  I wasn't happy about that at all.  I don't want to be putting my fears onto our baby.  I certainly don't want him/her taking them on board.  So, we worked on that in the session and I have continued to work on that ever since.  And when I am feeling those fears I talk to bubbie and make sure he/she understands that this is my thing and he/she is not to take it on board.  That I am working on it and everything is ok.  That he/she is perfectly safe and sound inside my womb.  I think it helps both of us!  :)

The other things bubs needed was more omega 3's.  All other nutrition was fine, but he/she needed more nuts and avocados to help with development.  So, off to the supermarket I went!

I am so grateful to have this wonderful source to be able to help me with my journey through life and to be able to find out if there is anything our baby needs.  It is so incredible.  I know not everyone will believe in it, but for me, I have had years of seeing how it works, how it has made such a difference in my life, physically, emotionally and most amazingly, on a deep spiritual level.  It is an incredible blessing!

14 weeks pregnant

Last week was great!  I felt so much better.  I did a good weeks work and starting exercising again.  It was great to get the all clear to be able to do so!

This week, the nausea and tiredness have come back and I'm flattened again.  I guess that is the name of the game when you have your first baby at 47 years of age.  I"m going with the theory that bubbie is having a big growth spurt!  :)

I am grateful for a good doctors appointment yesterday and emotionally, I feel better for it.  My doctor had been away for a few weeks, so I was really happy to connect with her for the first time with this pregnancy.  She was so excited!!

She did a doppler scan and we were both excited to have found bubbies heartbeat.  It was a relief and a thrill all at the same time.  So, after a week of feeling quite anxious and nervous, I am finally starting to relax into the pregnancy a little bit.  I am really looking to when he/she is kicking around inside me and I get constant reassurances!

We got the results of our 12 week scan last week and everything looks great.  Our risk factor for Downs etc is very low and all test and images show a healthy baby and pregnancy.  Another sigh of relief!

Today, I have to not feel guilty about work and just take care of myself.  Bubbie and my health is the most important thing.  I am so grateful to be able to work from home and be able to take the time when I need it.  And I have an understanding brother for a boss!  Blessings.

I thought I would post a little video of bubbie doing jumps inside my womb during our 12 week scan.  The file didn't come over very well, so hubbie put the one good jump we got on video into a loop.  Jump and slide back down, jump and sliiiide back down!
