20 weeks! Half way there!

How far along? 20 weeks!

Total weight gain/loss? I have gained about 5 lbs.

Maternity clothes? Yep! There are some pre-pregnancy shirts that still fit but the majority of my clothes are maternity.

Stretch marks? Nope. The ones I had with Caleb are still there but nothing new has come up.

Sleep? Very uncomfortable. I am having a hard time finding a comfortable position.

Best moment last week? Feeling baby move.

Movement? Yes! Getting stronger every day!

Food cravings? None right now.

Gender? Boy or girl!

Labor signs? Nope! It better stay that way for a while!

What I miss: Sleeping!

What I am looking forward to: Feeling the baby move more and getting more of a bump.

Milestones: I had my u/s yesterday! Pictures below:

16 weeks!!

How far along? 16 weeks 1 day

Total weight gain/loss? I have gained about 2-3 lbs.

Maternity clothes? Maternity pants are a must but I can still wear my regular shirts.

Stretch marks? Nothing new.

Sleep? Not much! I have to take Tylenol PM to get a decent night sleep. It is getting uncomfortable to sleep on my belly which is a bummer since I am an avid tummy sleeper.

Best moment last week? Hearing the hearbeat at my doctor appointment.

Movement? I have not felt anything that I could say for sure was the baby. I felt Caleb move at 18 weeks so I know soon I will be feeling this one.

Food cravings? Not really. I am lucky if I even feel hungry.
Gender? Boy or girl!

Labor signs? No way!

What I miss: Being able to eat a full meal without feeling sick afterwards.

What I am looking forward to: I have my big ultrasound on March 30th!

Milestones: I took my first pregnancy photo today!

I'm Pregnant!

The first round of Clomid worked! We are expecting our newest addition on August 18th! I am thrilled! On December 6th (9dpo), i was going to see a doctor regarding my high fevers and sore throat. I knew it was probably strep throat and I was going to be put on antibiotics. I decided to test that day because some medications are not safe to take while pregnant. I thought it would be negative because I was not expecting my period for another 3-4 days. I shocked to see a very faint line! I went into work for a rapid strep test and a blood test to confirm the pregnancy. The blood test came back positive (as did the strep test)! I took another test on the 9th (the day my period was supposed to start) and it was definetly positive.

We had an ultrasoubd on 12/22 (5w5d) and they saw a little fetal pole but it was too early to see a heartbeat. I went back on 1/5/2012 (7w5d)for another u/s and we saw our baby with a heartbeat! The heartbeat was 156!

I am 8 weeks along today. Now I have to decide whether we will find out the gender at 20 weeks or wait until delivery.
