17 weeks with 3.0

Wow, somehow I'm already 15 weeks 16 weeks 17 weeks pregnant. I started writing this when I was nearly 16 weeks and now I'm more than 17 weeks, I guess time flies when you have 2 children, a couple dogs and a million things to do. Sorry about your 12 week update 3.0, missed that one completely. 

Thankfully, life is starting to get better after the fog and awfulness that was my 1st trimester. I was really sick until about 12 weeks when I could finally stop taking the progesterone. But, it's still been a slow return back to feeling good. I had good days and bad ones until about 14 weeks when I think I finally turned the corner for good. 

Right now I'm still waiting for that magical 2nd trimester energy to return. I'm not quite as tired as I was but still life is a struggle to stay awake. Otherwise, I'm feeling pretty good. Heartburn is starting to creep in and so is the swelling in the heat.


One unusual thing has been the baby's movement. With both Henry and Nora I was feeling a lot of movement by now. This time, not so much. I FINALLY felt real baby kicks this past week at 16w6d, the absolute latest I've felt real baby movements with any of my pregnancies. Still, movements are few and far between -- so different from the other two.

This baby also gave me quite the scare at my 16 week doctor appointment. When it came time to find the heartbeat on the doppler, the doctor had to really, really search. It took nearly an entire minute and I was completely freaking out. Had Hen and Nora not been in the room I'm pretty sure I would have had a full blown panic attack. Thankfully, the baby was just being sneaky and all was well with a heartbeat of 152. 

Only a few more weeks until my anatomy scan. I can't wait to see the baby again and find out if its a boy/girl. We already have names picked out so once we know things will feel much more real. But, for some reason anatomy scans can't be scheduled before 22 weeks now  with my OB{it was much earlier with the other two} so I'm getting anxious. Anyone else have to wait this long?

So that's it for now about 3.0. Hopefully, I can get my act together and update more frequently now!

  1. Congratulations on your pregnancy! 17 weeks and you are looking good. I hope and pray for your safe journey and delivery. Pregnancy is one of the topic that we discussed during College, a article that we've submitted via paper writers.
