17 weeks today! I’m so close to being half baked!
We had our 16 week appointment with the perinatal doctor last week and everything is looking great! On Monday I had my first OB appointment-pretty standard, but it was nice to have an appointment with a regular OB, like a regular pregnant woman! Here are the babies at 16 weeks-pretty cute already:) Baby A is our little BOY and baby B is our little GIRL. Its starting to feel a little more real. I can not wait until I can feel them move!
Over the weekend we went up to Blue Ridge for a quick getaway. It was so nice to have a change of scenery! The cabin we rented was super nice and the dogs loved being able to run around in the woods. Here I am on the huge wrap around porch. I think the babies enjoyed their first trip:)
And, still, with my standard whine-I still feel nauseous-at least half of the day. Around 10am I start feeling rough, take my phenergan and then feel ok until around 3-4pm, when I've been feeling pretty sick until I go to bed. I know this is an improvement over when I used to feel so sick all day, but I was hoping that by now I’d be feeling good. I can only hope that will come soon, but I’m really afraid that I’m going to feel sick the entire pregnancy. God I hope not!
This week in the babies life:
Her rubbery cartilage is now turning to bone.
And she’s growing some meat on those bones — putting on some fat.
She’s growing a stronger, thicker umbilical cord, too
