February 28, 2008 – 16 weeks, 3 days

Brian and I had our 3rd prenatal appointment today. It was originally scheduled for next Tuesday but since I was still having pains in my lower ab region, the nurse decided to move my appointment up. This appointment consisted of more blood work and the doctor putting my worries at ease regarding the pains I've been having. After that, we had the pleasure of hearing our little one’s heartbeat again. This time however, it wasn’t immediate. The first sound we heard this time was our baby moving. He/She moved a lot! After about what seemed like a minute or so the nurse practitioner finally found the heartbeat...still strong and pounding fast (I didn’t ask the rate this time). The doctor said everything seems to be going well. Our next appointment is scheduled for March 27th. That is the day we’ve been waiting for. That’s the day we find out if our little one is a boy or a girl.

Morning sickness update…
The morning sickness seems to have passed...finally!! I’m starting to have more energy and I’ve even gained all of my weight back plus some! I never thought I would be happy about gaining weight! Now if I could just get rid of this head cold!

Weight = +2.5, Waist = +2 inches
