I am 16 weeks
First thing, since this pregnancy was a total surprise I have my good days where I am totally excited to days where I am majorly freaked out and hoping it will work out ok.
We heard the heart beat twice. Everything sounded great and he found it really easy.
My doctor's name is Ben Adkins. I LOVE him. My top three reasons I like him are:
He wears people clothes. I hate those doctor jackets with the embroidery names.
He looks kinda like a little boy. He has this little gap between his teeth and is not too nerdy and not to attractive.
He gives me general health advice. It's nice to go in and learn about other things than just pregnancy.
I have been incredibly sore, all of my joints from the waist down hurt. Unfortunately not a lot to do about that.
My mom sends me all these super cute prego clothes that make being pregnant much more bearable.
My preschoolers are SO interested in my "baby in my tummy." When I eat lunch and take a lot of something they say "Does the baby like that" When I take a little they say "Tell your baby its ok to not like green beans." They are always saying "tell your baby" this and that and talk about how it's coming to preschool at valentines day. and all the things they are going to teach it. It is so fun!
I love love love fruit and chips and salsa, and cheese and pickles. pretty much in that order.
And since several of you have insisted here is the little baby bump...The chinese birth chart, the old wives tales and the amazon baby quiz all say it is a boy... we will find out if its right in a couple of weeks!
Anyways that is all... Send all of your happy vibes to me. I need them! And advice. Thanks friends
