Woo hoo! 17 weeks! I hate the fact that #3 is being compared to my arch nemesis of hated food...but that's what the Baby Pics app had for comparison's sake this week. We are inching closer and closer it seems SO FAST to the halfway point...and it's still August! I cannot believe that. Nuts. Just nuts.
I have an OB appointment tomorrow, which feels like FOREVER since I've been there. I haven't seen my actual OB since I was 7 weeks, since I saw the nurse practitioner (never again!) at 12 weeks. So I'm excited to see her and catch her up with what's been happening with me and #3. Then just 3 weeks later is my 20 week ultrasound! I cannot believe it. Seriously, so fast.
This past week has been interesting...it was our first full week of school, and I met it with a double ear infection and sinus infection. My allergist loaded me up with some antibiotics which didn't work, so then had to resort to steroids, which, knock on wood, are doing the trick. I was pretty miserable last week -- I was just getting my appetite back and BAM. Infections struck. And then Friday I woke up so so so nauseous I had to pop a zofran to make it through the morning. I really hope it was just a side-effect of all of the drainage and such and not pregnancy nausea, but yeah, it SUCKED. But! After that I got my steroids and those have really helped me get back to feeling myself, hunger coming back and all. I'm definitely hungry, but not the ravenous "I want to eat everything in sight" hunger I remember at this point from the past 2 pregnancies.
As far as movement, definitely feeling more and more it seems. I guess I forget what the early movement feels like -- flutters, or to me, feels like little tickles inside my tummy -- and now that those are coming back to my memory I am most definitely feeling them more and more it seems. I hope they keep up! And I can't wait for them to get stronger and turn into legit kicks that Mike can feel on the outside.
Here's a lovely comparison pic about 16.5 weeks with Rosie (on the left) and #3 on the right. About the same size, huh?! Although #3 looks like he/she is sitting higher...curious to see how he/she is measuring in a few weeks at my ultrasound!
Welp, that's about all I've got for week 17! Until week 18 friends, adios!
