She's a movin' and a groovin' in there. I love it! I didn't feel Emeline this early because of my anterior placenta. This time, I've felt the baby move since 16'ish weeks, and I've even felt her from the outside. We will see her on ultrasound at my official anatomy scan on Tuesday. I am looking forward to that, of course.
I'm good, I think. I mean, generally I feel pretty healthy and strong these days. I admit that I definitely feel the whole shortness of breath & get winded more easy lately, but such is the next 20 weeks of my life. Some morning sickness has returned a little, but it doesn't linger all day. Generally just one 'episode' (I'm trying to be PC. Ha), and then I'm back to feeling better. I feel like I have to pee all the time these days, but get so distracted with Emeline that I forget to pee.
Last time, at my 16 week update, I was about -3 pounds. And ugh. It's pretty obvious my morning sickness has generally subsided, because this momma is now UP 3-4 pounds from my original starting weight. It's faster than I gained weight with Emeline--so I'm hoping that's not a sign of what's to come. Or maybe--? It'll even out? Let's hope. I'm feeling chubby these days. I hate that. I know that my thighs are expanding, I'm starting to get pregnancy face, and I can feel a double chin forming. It's worth it. Yes. So much so. I should also not eat as many muffins. And bagels. :)
Comparison to last pregnancy? I'd say I'm starting to even out now and look the same. Maybe even a little bigger than last time considering there's a week difference.
The Big Sis
She knows baby sisters name. Which is too, too cute. Yes, we have a name! I just adore hearing Emeline say it, sweetest thing ever.
She's doing well and we pray daily for her transition to big sister. For now we're soaking up the time it is just her, and enjoying that to the fullest. We'll never get back this time, so it's very special to us.
Half way already?
Crazyness. Excited to meet the newest little lady in my life come August.
