Mini D's 2nd Trimester {Weeks 16 & 17}

Monday, February 2, 2015
(16 weeks)

This is me and Mini D this week:



Monday, February 9, 2015
(17 weeks)


I was supposed to have my Dr appointment last Wednesday, but had to reschedule to today. Everything was great and we heard the heartbeat again. It was normal at 160.


Saturday, February 14, 2015
(17 weeks, 5 days)


We celebrated Valentine's Day. We went to dinner and a movie and we were both so tired, but made it.



UPDATE:

Maternity Clothes: Yes! I am pretty much wearing nothing but maternity clothes. I still have a few shirts that I can fit into, but it's mostly all maternity stuff.

Sleep: I have continued to sleep pretty well with the continued assistance of the pillow. 

Best Moment of the Week: Dr appointment as always.

Movement: None yet.

Food Craving: Not too many things. I get something specific in my head or something from a certain place and then decide that's what I want. One night I wanted a burger, so I made homemade burgers. It was delicious.


Food Aversions: I've started having some aversions to some smelly foods, but that's pretty much it so far.

Morning Sickness: None.

Gender: Unknown, but we set our next Dr appointment for 3/9 (21 weeks) and that will be the big ultrasound where we hopefully find out if it's a boy or girl. Also, fingers crossed for a healthy baby!

Symptoms: I've been feeling pretty good. Mostly just tired still. I have noticed that I get out of breath faster and that bending over is getting harder. I feel like these things are occurring sooner than they did with Hailey, but I also think I am bigger now than I was with her. I also do not have the "glowing" skin that is supposed to come with pregnancy. I have had various breakouts on my face, which is really abnormal for me normally, so getting them while pregnant has been frustrating. 

What I miss: Not too much. I haven't been as strict with coffee/caffeine as I was with Hailey. Don't get me wrong, I still limit it, but I am allowing myself to have it when I want it. 

What I'm looking forward to: Our 21 week Dr appointment on 3/9.
