Last week I had my 16 week appt. Everything is checking out good and on schedule. I never thought it would be possible to weigh this much in my life. I have almost gained 10 pounds! We got to hear the baby's heartbeat again which is oh so cool! Josh recorded it on his phone so now I can listen to it whenever I want. It is just so reassuring to hear the heartbeat!
I got my blood drawn for a test as well. The old Natalie, 2 years ago, would have freaked out if she knew how many times I would be having my blood drawn during these past 2 years. I have become friends with Charles the Phlebotomist. He is the best! It barley hurts when he draws my blood. I like him because he's awesome at his job (not like the other girl that works there, she is really bad at finding veins), he once had a twilight poster hanging in the room and he's a little snotty (but never with me). He has told me that I'm dramatic, but I just can't look at the needle when it goes into my arm! Anyway, it's a big deal for me that I finally feel comfortable having my blood drawn.
Other news, March 10th is the BIG day. 2 Weeks away! It's the day when we find out if little baby "O" is a girl or a boy. It will be a surprise. I sometimes think I know what i'll be having, but then I have doubts. So we will have to see. I can't wait!
More and more people are finding out that we are having a baby. It kinda baffles me for those people who are around me. I'm pretty sure I look pregnant. When have I ever looked like this in my life? Come on people!
Things that have changed:
I no longer feel life barfing all the time! Whoo-hoo! Week 15 was a good week.
I had food poisoning twice and I seriously thought I was going to die. Josh was even scared.
My sciatic nerves are really mean to me and hurt me sometimes.
I have had a headache for the better part of this week.
I can eat chicken again!
I am hungry a lot.
I crave artichokes all the time.
