I had my 16w appt today. (!!) I was honestly a bit disappointed when I did NOT get an ultrasound, nor any pictures (evidence) to bring home to post here. I did get to listen to the heartbeat, which was just perfect at 152bpm (beats per minute). There was a little 'pong' sound I could hear along with the heartbeat and the nurse said that was him kicking me. It seriously sounded like an atari pong sound or something. I'm not feeling anything yet that I know of. The nurse said I should feel kicks in the next 2-3 weeks. Amazing. I also have TWO other pieces of good news to share!
1. I have officially gained ONE POUND.
2. And I got a prescription for Zofran, the miracle nausea drug usually given to chemo patients. That makes me feel a bit better about travelling over the holidays, for sure.
In the past 3-4 days, I somehow have a bit of a belly. I'm sure my mom will take pictures when we're at her house, so I'll post some then.
An advance thank you to Cindy and Cynthia for the warm weather preggo clothes-- it's supposed to be 80(!!!) in FL, which means I definitely can't wear jeans and long sleeves. Time to break out the short sleeves and maternity shorts. There's just no way my shorts would fit now. I guess my body is being very efficient about stretching that ONE pound as far as it can.
The next appt is the big anatomy scan on January 21st. It's all so amazing. And I still can't believe I'm here.
