Hey Everyone! I'm 16 Weeks along!
|4 months I can't believe it!!|
I am actually 17 weeks by now but I am about a week behind on my photos so I might have to do a double week post at some point soon :-).
So there are no illusions about my belly showing now! (although there are a lot of people that are shocked and are all like "where is your belly I though you were pregnant blah blah blah") I feel like the weeks are going by so quickly and even though I still have 5 months to go I have a feeling that the time will fly really fast!
Since I am solidly into my second trimester my fears of MC are somewhat easing up. I am anxiously awaiting some kicks from the baby for the added reassurance that the baby is healthy and active in between OB visits, I read that I should expect to feel fetal movement anytime in the next month!
The Jury is still out on my decision to have a doula attend the birth. The more I think about it the more I really want just Kyle there. I told the doula I met that I'm still thinking about it and she was very understanding. I do have quite a bit of time to mull it over I guess.
Kyle was on his vacation between quarters (straight A's last quarter woop woop! but I'm not bragging about him or anything...) last week so we were able to travel back to San Diego to visit some friends and to attend my friends wedding. It was so nice to see everyone again, we were able to go out to dinner and hit the beach and spend time in fellowship with so many wonderful people! I had to stop by my old job to pick up some paperwork and I couldn't resist stopping into the ER and saying hi to everyone. I was really nervous that my hormones would completely take over my body and I would bawl the entire time because I miss my co-workers so much but Kyle went with me and was very good about moving me around quickly so I couldn't get too emotional. I was able to exchange hugs and belly rubs with all the doctors and nurses without completely loosing it.
I am still having really weird dreams but thankfully I'm sleeping more easily at night now.
I was awfully lazy last week as far as my workouts go but I did do my Zumba Wii class today and I signed up for prenatal yoga which will start in two weeks.
That's about it for this week. My belly's getting bigger and I'm starting to day dream about what my baby will look like and what their personality will be. I will find out the gender in two weeks!
Until Next time I remain a happy momma to be!
