As most of you well know, I went & had my 16 week appointment yesterday where my doctor would attempt to determine the sex. Well the baby was so difficult to see & couldn't quite get a clear view of the parts. From what he did he did (&didn't) see though, (and us too) his suspicion & guess was that it's a girl. Which was what I also thought. But, I'm no expert.
I scheduled my 20 week Anatomy Scan for April 21st, which in reality isn't too far off but it seems soooooo far away. So, me being the anxious type I am, scheduled an U/S for next Thursday at a fetal studio to determine the sex. It's nice because if they can't tell on the first visit, they let you come back the next week for free!
I left the dr's. office feeling good. I wasn't as disappointed as I thought I'd be not knowing for sure. All that really mattered was that I have a healthy baby growing safe & strong inside of me & I thank God for that everyday.
Sorry so much rambling, yesterday was eventful, you know. ;)
How far along?: 16w1d
How big is baby?: The size of an avocado ::runs to make some guacamole::
Weight gain?: The scale at the Dr's yesterday indicated I gained another 2 lbs within 3 weeks. So... 9.5lbs? YIKES
Stretch Marks?: I am religiously rubbing my oil & lotion all over my midsection & thighs & have been lucky thus far...
Maternity Clothes?: I'm slowly accepting the fact that I just can't wear my normal adorable designer jeans anymore. I'm pretty much exclusively in mat. jeans/leggings & regular tops
Sleep?: Absolutely awful. My lower back aches all. night. long.
Best moment this week?: Obviously seeing baby on the u/s machine & sort of finding out it could be a girl!!
Food cravings?: anything spicy & turkey subs
Gender?: pretty sure it's a girl!!!! We'll hopefully know for sure next week. But I ain't holding my breath :)
Movement?: A couple of days ago I was sitting at my desk & felt a little something... it was like a bubble popping. It happened twice in a row. But who knows if it was baby.
What I miss: again with the wine... still missing it. & my skinny face
Belly Button?: Innie but getting wider...ew.
What I'm looking forward to?: Next Thursday for my u/s!!
Milestone?: inching further to the half-way mark!!
16 week belly
Slowly looking pregnant, I hope?
