Today I am 16 weeks and here is my 16 week picture of Baby Stafford. He/She is the size of an avocado. This picture was taken after church last night and unless I show you my belly I don't look pregnant.
How Far Along: 16 weeks
Total Weight Gain/Loss: I have gained 2 pounds since the start of my pregnancy
Maternity Clothes: None
Sleep: I am sleeping better...I still wake up twice a night to use the little girls room. The only change is that I have had horrible dreams. Not fun at all!
Best Moment this week: Hearing Baby Stafford's Heartbeat
Gender: Not Sure Yet...we will find out in January 2010
Food Craving: Breakfast I love cereal and currently I am loving Honey Nut Cheerios. I love to have apples and crackers for a snack. For lunch and dinner I still like bland food such as grilled cheese.
What I miss: Chocolate Milk and Chocolate
What I am looking forward to: My appointment in January and Christmas with my family!
Weekly Wisdom: I don't have any to share...sorry :)
Symptoms: I still have a stuffy nose and I am still extremely tired all the time!
My doctor's appointment on Friday December 4th, 2009 was GREAT! My hubby was out of town, but I had my friend Kim come with me and it was nice to have her there. My doctor delivered her little girl Kelsey and she asked questions for me that I don't think of...so a BIG thanks Kim! I gained 2 pounds and Baby Stafford's heartbeat was a strong 148. We spent some time going over my medical records from the Tulsa Fertility Center and I ended up having blood work done. I also found out that I am Rh-negative so I will need to take certain precautions during my pregnancy. So at Week 28 I will have to get an injection of a drug called Rh immune. Hopefully all will be fine after getting the shot. Both my sisters had the shot as well when they were pregnant so I am not too concerned. My next appointment is in January 2010.
I now sit and wait until than and think is it a boy or a girl.
