week 16

Well, once again, another week flew by and we are entering our 17th week (or 18th week if you want to go by my doctor who cant make up his mind..ha..) this past week was a decent one. I still have a little bit of morning sickness here and there, although i dont get sick, but im happy that its not as bad as it was in the first trimester. My back and legs still ache, along with some lower abdomen pain ("pelvic pain"?) which i dont know what it is, but was told its normal. The pain comes and goes, however, and its something ive learned to ignore.. and im starting to love and become more and more comfortable with this second trimester. Sleep is getting better, although i do feel like an old lady at times because i "cant hang".. ha. i get tired pretty early and start to drag when im on my feet for long hours.. but im sure ill adjust to all that soon.


..trying to take a better pic.. daddy loves this baby bump, but he has a hard time capturing it..ha.

Every once and a while, i think i feel you, but im not sure if its gas or anything else.. i feel this random kind of twitch from the area you might be sitting which feels like a poke from within..but its still a little early so we will see. But the good news is I guess you're finally showing!! :-D I dont really know what to look for since ive never been pregnant before and every little bit of fat on my belly looks "different" however, daddy finally agreed that i have a "baby bump" and for a first time, a random stranger recognized i was due! haha.. how cute! im sure in a couple of months that will start to be annoying (hearing random peices of advice and pregnancy stories from strangers) but for now, im loving it :-D im one proud momma! we took a quiz today and it was predicted that you are a girl! im just anxious to get this ultrasound in a couple of weeks and see what kind of clothes i can start buying! :-D Ive been looking into finding another doctor because im not sure about this one.. hes always in a rush during my visit and when i ask him about any concerns, he tells me its normal.. i found someone in Sweedsboro (that means ill be able to deliver in Elmer, where theres a brand new materinity ward and rumor has it, great nurses :-D although my dream was to always deliver at the same hospital i was born at.. but its out of state and medicade wouldnt cover that) i need to wait for my HMO Horizon card to come in in April (about a week or so) and be able to visit this other doctor.. so we will see..

Daddy and I just got back from a much needed weekend away in Atlantic City. We had a blast, as always.. and I counting on this being our last couple get-away for a while.. but thats okay.. :-D hopefully our next trip will be to the beach with the kids this summer.

Daddy's next project (and his "baby" for right now..ha..) is the fish tank.. which he is working on as i type.. here are the before pics take a few days ago.. hes hoping to have it ready for fish soon..
