I’m 21 weeks pregnant
How big is the baby?
According my latest ultrasound, he is 26 cm for 450g. Bb#3 is in the 95th percentile so he is very tall !
Something special this week?
2 ultrasounds in less than a week !
My gynecologist always makes separate appointments for the monthly pregnancy check and the trimester ultrasound. I went to go and see her on Friday and on Tuesday, so I could see the baby twice !
Most exciting moment?
Sharing the second ultrasound with both my husband and Mr A.
It was a lovely gift from my gynecologist as with all the Covid19 restrictions, children are not allowed in medical offices.
Therefore I had two very motivated and interested commentators about what was on screen.
Most challenging moment?
I’m still struggling against different offices from the French administration.
And in every field : family, disability, unemployment… It’s really exhausting to try to connect, always sending reminders and defending my case… with no successes !
What’s new doctor?
Very great news from the baby who is growing up nicely !
He moves, he kicks and develops as he is supposed to be. It was so moving to watch on screen his little fingers and toes and seeing him completely, looking like a beautiful tiny baby !
And the news are not as bad as the substitute gynecologist told me before. There is not too much liquid and the baby is just tall, not big ! And according to their scale I haven’t gained weight in a month !
However, I’ve been trying to get an endocrinologist appointment. It has been hard to have one. I’ve tried 6 different doctors before getting an appointment before my due date !
Things are getting better there too.
The results are better but I was a bit demotivated with my difficulties to get an endocrinologist appointment.
To celebrate their coming back home, we went with my husband and Mr A to test a new vegan burger restaurant. It was delicious but we were so full we only watched Little H eating dinner in the evening !)
It really was my motto for the two past weeks. I was really focused on these two objectives. Back to school is coming very soon and I have plenty of work to do for my customers.
I also had the beautiful surprise to see one of my articles published on my favorite parenting blog Your Zen Mama!
It strikes me how much I need to find a balance between my 3 highest values.
My business, my family and my self-care are really the most important for feeling rooted and balanced. And I’m used to always favouring one at the expense of the others. That’s the reason why I feel my frustration growing with the weeks. Being aware of it is a thing, acting to change things and to find a way to balance them all is another, especially with the new school year to come…
