I am so behind here...I meant to update on Tuesday after my appointments but I was pretty wiped out! Both of my appointments went well. I am very happy that everything with Baby Nixon is going well so far...I dont take these moments/appointments for granted AT ALL, and I'll be the first to say that. My cervix did shorten a little but is still at an average length and is still closed - which is a great start. I will be monitored every 1.5 - 2 weeks by the Perinatologists, and so far every doctor I have seen has been wonderful. I was cleared to return to work, which has made me extremely tired and sore at night. Hopefully that will change soon. I have another appointment and u/s on the 2nd of July (can you believe it is already July???) and I hope we can find out what we are having! Here are my 16 week stats...
How Far Along: 16 Weeks
Gender: Unknown...hopefully we will find out next week!
Movement: I havent felt any movement yet
What I miss: nothing
Sleep: I have had no problem sleeping. I do wake up about every 3 hours to go to the bathroom but am able to go right back to sleep
Symptoms: During the 1st trimester I could hardly eat meat - that is starting to come around a bit but am still having some food aversions to meat and some other foods - I made spaghetti & meatballs for dinner last night and couldnt eat the meatballs/red sauce...
Cravings: Still the veggie bowls bowls from chipotle - I didnt think I would live to see the day I would ever get a meat-less meal from any where.
Best Moment this week: Knowing that things are going well so far. Around 15-17 weeks is when I started having a few issues with Emma so it is just an uneasy time. I am 16 weeks and inching my way closer...
What I am looking forward to: My next appointment & u/s on the 2nd - hopefully we can find out if it is a boy or girl! What do you think??
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, we are going out to dinner (Chipotle!) & a movie tonight with our wonderful best friends Dave & Tonya. I am looking forward to it! Happy Friday!
