16 Week Appointment 3.7.2011

Wednesday, March 9, 2011

This week we went in for our 16 week appointment, wahoo! I didn't think we would be doing an ultra sound, but we did! :) At first he did just the little heartbeat machine, but then decided to do a full ultrasound just to make sure baby is doing good. It was really fun to see. The baby was kicking its legs like crazy and the doc was like "its doing the can-can in there". HAHA. I've got myself a dancin baby! We got a couple of pictures, and he scheduled us for the BIG ultrasound where they do all the big tests and measurements and we get to find out the gender of the baby. I'm so excited, just three weeks!! Okay, and the ticker this week says our baby is 5 oz. and growing fast. Limbs are lengthening, almost reaching birth proportions. 170 days to go!

Baby Update

Saturday, March 5, 2011

Alrighty, we have now officially entered the second trimester - WAHOO!! 15 weeks this week, and my baby is the size of an apple. Considering what I have been craving, this size makes me happy. Now when I see a nice, juicy, lucious green apple I simultaneously salivate and get warm fuzzies thinking of my coming little one. Love it. Other than that, my symptoms have mostly subsided. Still no morning sickness, and smells have to be really strong again to bother me. YAY. On the other hand I'm starting to feel more awkward and bulky, though I'm not hardly showing at all. I have to sleep on my side most the time, with occasionally sleeping a few minutes on my back. Turning over is terrible, it sends sharp pain through the side of my tummy. I have to be careful sometimes. I have also hit the chronically tired stage. I could seriously go to bed at 7pm each night. My nose has also been super over active as well. Stuffy, clogged sinuses, a little bit of pressure through my ear and jaw as well. I was worried it was a sinus infection so I made a quick visit to my doc this past Monday. No infection. After speaking with him and reasearching a bit, IT hink it's regular pregnancy symptoms, especially since they were absolutely terrible three days straight, and now today it's only mucus in the back of my throat. All well. :) We have a regular appointment this coming Monday, and if there are any developments, we will let you know. THis week my countdown says the baby is 5" and 3 1/2 oz. Movements are coordinated and eyebrows and eyelashes appear. 15 weeks and 3 days along! The baby is the size of an apple.
