More pregnancy news
This morning we had our 13 week checkup. Dale and I were able to hear the baby's heartbeat again, and it sounded healthy--about 60 beats per minute. The doctor informed us that around 18 weeks we can find out the gender. I can't believe that's about a month away... we are sooo excited! We'll be counting down the days!
So far the pregnancy has been going rather smooth. Since this is our first pregnancy, we didn't know what to expect. Morning sickness has not really affected me (thank goodness!). There were a few weeks of nausea, but I continued to work and get things done around that.
I've kept a weekly log of new pregnancy experiences:
4 weeks (april 29)- migraines, vomiting, restless nights started
5 weeks- craving pineapple pizza, eating constantly (even in the middle of the night)
6 weeks- eating constantly
7 weeks- pee almost every 2 hours
8 weeks- extra nauseous
9 weeks- stomach pains from belly growing, ultrasound
10 weeks- craving strawberry waffles
11 weeks- back pains
12 weeks- not sleeping well
13 weeks- just started the 13th week :)
