17 weeks and counting

I am full force in my second trimester now and it has definitely been much better than the first. When looking back at how sick I was for a few weeks, I realize even more how awful that was now that I am feeling better. There were several weeks that I was throwing up an average of 2-3 times a day. And that's after I figured out some tricks and things to keep myself from feeling so sick. That's also with good anti-nausea medication. The sickness slowly dwindle off to once a day for a while and then a few times a week and now it is pretty rare for me to get sick to the point of throwing up. I think the vomiting in the car incident was the last big hoorah, at least for a while. I have only thrown up once since then. Since I have been feeling better, I have been able to go back to the gym, eat what I want, and start trying to get my house back to a point of acceptable cleanliness.

My little belly really started popping out the last week or so. I've been mostly in maternity clothes for several weeks now, but I still wasn't obviously showing to the outside world. About a week ago, I noticed that I looked much more pregnant in a top that I had only worn about a week or so before without looking obviously pregnant. All this week I started getting comments from friends and family that I was getting a little pregnant belly. And I actually had my first incident where a person ( a mom of one of my patients) noticed my belly and asked if I was pregnant. Luckily, I am, so we didn't have a super awkward moment. It is definitely fun to be showing a little bit but it does make my wardrobe situation a little more challenging.

9 weeks Pregnant- 2/8/09 (Still pretty sick too!)

16 & a half weeks- 3/30/09

I have also started feeling the baby move a little bit. It's still not consistent but I feel it once or twice throughout the day now. That has been fun. We should (hopefully) find out whether we are having a girl or boy this week on Friday! I can't believe we are already to that point. We are very excited and I will definitely be sure to update the blog as quickly as possible after we find out. Thanks for all of your prayers and support! We love you all!
