Anyways, we finished talking about how I need more protein and how I could get that through snacks and what not. Then she felt my tummy and showed me where my uterus was. Now THAT was cool. We also got to hear the heartbeat! The look on Chris' face was just awesome. I think it finally sank in that there is another little bub that we created growing in my uterus. We even got to hear some movement - it was a funny sound like a "WOUMP" Janice said that the heartbeat sounded great (160BPM) and that everything is looking good.
I feel good. Although there are some days that I am just exhausted. But I think that comes with having a toddler to chase after all day long. But I don't mind, James and I get to nap together which I love. He snuggles right on up to me.
The cravings are back. Mushroom soup! Ahh I want it all the time. Then it's cheese whiz on toast... I give in every time.
So, I am in my 17th week - only 3 more to go till the half way mark. We have started to make predictions on what this little one will be - a lot of people are saying girl so of course I'm saying boy! But my mother's intuition is saying girl as well. Only a few more weeks till we find out.
|17 week belly shot. It's funny cause I don't look this big in person.|
So there you have it. Hope you all have a great weekend. We are out of town AGAIN!
