Yay I'm done with the first trimester and am feeling quite a bit better (except for this stupid cold I got--3rd one in three months--I'm almost wondering if I have pregnancy induced sinus infections). I had an appointment last Friday and everything looked great. My uterus was exactly where it was supposed to be. Which I was actually a little bit worried about. I have been feeling distinct baby tapping and thumps and huge kicks the last three weeks. The tapping and thumps I know are normal, a little early to be feeling those things but not unheard of, but the large kicks, especially the one I felt at 12 weeks was making me wonder about my due date (which by the way is May 14th). But my midwife said that maybe it was my uterus popping out from under my pubic bone when I bent over. So that made me feel a lot better.
The baby's heartbeat was 160 bpm. My blood pressure was nice and low. So everything looked great.
The last time I threw up was just past 13 weeks, so my assumption of 14 weeks being the magical number when I would start feeling better seems to be right on. After weeks of not wanting to eat cold lunches I was able to eat a turkey sandwich the other day. I also was able to cut up some chicken for dinner and not vomit. Unfortunately that means that I should probably take over more of the dinner making responsibilities.
So I am taking belly pictures this time. And though I don't feel quite as cute as I did last time I think it is good to still be proud of my pregnant body. :) And if you want to reminisce, compare, or see what I have to look forward to here are pictures of when I was pregnant with Selena.
