We had a midwife appointment this week, and things look good. The baby’s heartrate was 160 beats per minute. My fundal height was 17cm, which is on track for being 16-17 weeks pregnant, as I am. Overall, things look good. We have our ultrasound scheduled for the week after next, so that will be the next baby-related update.
I have also taken a couple of belly shots. I’m planning to do them bi-weekly this time, and I’ve posted two. I’m definitely getting bigger more quickly this time, which is to be expected as everything has been pre-stretched. I don’t think I was quite this big until around 24 weeks last time. You be the judge:
16 weeks pregnant with baby number 2
24 weeks pregnant with baby number 1
More good news, I’m not feeling quite as queasy anymore. And, I’m feeling the first little kicks from the baby. I alternate between excitement and fear. Excitement because, yay, a baby! Fear, because I can barely handle my 3-year-old. Big changes are afoot at our house, and that’s the only thing that’s for sure.
