Pic above is me at 10 weeks along. Just a tiny lil bulge.
Pic in the purple shirt above and below is me at 16 weeks. Belly starting to get a lil bigger.I'm FINALLY through my first trimester! Although I was very nauseous and sick to my stomach, it could have been worse. I'm still tired, but not as bad as I was earlier. Today, I am 17 weeks 3 days along. My due date was Oct 7th, but the doctor moved it to Oct 6th at my last visit. I've been to the OB twice. The first time (at almost 12 wks), they found the heartbeat in about 2 seconds. The second visit (at almost 16wks), it took longer to find it. My heart was beating out of my chest!! I was so worried that something was wrong and they wouldn't find it. I know that I should always have faith, but at that moment, I was scared to death! .... The OB did find it, and I started breathing again. Whew!!!
It seems that at 16 wks, my lil belly all of a sudden started poking out a little. I had a lot of people at church this past Sunday say "Wow! Where did that come from??" Hmm. Guess I got hungry. Speaking of that, I do get hungry often. I'm trying to be good and eat tons of fruit, peanut butter and graham crackers, veggies, etc. I've only gained 3 lbs so far. (I haven't weighed in a few days though...) I'm on track for where I should be. I lost a pound in my first trimester, but since I've been in my second, I've gained a pound week 14, 15, 16, ... maybe 17? We'll see. I'll weigh again on Monday. :)
I am extremely thankful and overwhelmed that I am expecting. I thank God and pray for this baby constantly. I try to give Him my worry and just do what I should do to make this a healthy pregnancy. (Oh, I started power walking again-- up hills. 2 miles. I miss running, but I got out of shape so fast, I guess it's ok that I'm just walking!) ..... I have a huge prayer list with people that I know are still trying to get pregnant, those who have lost babies, and those who are currently expecting.
Ok, I must go, but I will be posting pics at 18 wks this week. (Oh-- thanks to my lovely sister, Megan, I will definitely be held accountable on making sure those pics are up! She has asked me every day for the past week "Have you updated your blog yet?? You're a horrible blogger!" haha. I know, I know. I procrastinate worse than anyone I know. ) .... Have a great weekend!!!!
