Thanks for asking Adaline'sMama :) I have been MIA little bit.
17 weeks and 1 day.. I've officially never been this pregnant before. I lost my little boy at 17 weeks last December so this is a real 'mental milestone' for me.
Doctor wants me to get an US to check my cervical length since my loss was in the 2nd tri so will be scheduling that soon - hoping they can tell me the gender then too and that I won't have to wait til the official anatomy scan. My vomiting has been sporadic, got my Zofran prescription filled again, as I didn't like some of the side effects I'd read about re the other med doc prescribed. Some days worshipping at the porcelain throne 2-3 times, some days none. It's getting better, just slowly I suppose. I just pray I'm not one of the HG mamas that suffer right until they give birth! My lower back and hips are still feeling a little bit 'looser' than usual, Relaxin doing its thing I guess. I'm fatigued alot again now which I'm thinking means baby is about to have a growth spurt or is currently having one.
I mentioned when I first started posting that things weren't going so great between me and DH - I'm happy to say that we are in SUCH a better place now, despite some financial difficulties, we are getting along really well, he felt the baby kick for the first time a couple of nights back and is really embracing the idea that we are going to be parents now, kissing and rubbing my belly (I def have a bump now!) and continuing to get me whatever food is flavor of the day, lol.
Wishing you all good days!
