16 week appointment

Yesterday was my 16 week appointment.  It was a basic appointment, listened to the heart beat on the doppler (she cooperated much better this time and we didn't need the u/s machine!), weighed me (up 11.6 lbs since the get-go, which is ok) measured my tummy, still measuring ahead a couple weeks, took my blood pressure, nice and normal, and talked about the plan the perinatologist gave us.

My progesterone shots still aren't ready yet :(  But, the good news for Dusty is he won't have to administer them like he thought.  Instead I will head to their office every week to get it.  So, no concern about doing them wrong :)

I did develop a bad case of the stomach flu that started yesterday early morning.  As of now it's been over 24 hours since I've been able to keep any food down :(  As a precaution he put me on strict bed rest through at least today.  If I'm still getting sick, I have to stay in bed, doing nothing until I am 100% back to normal.  This really sucks since I missed Kaitlyn's last day of school's pizza party, taking her out to celebrate the end of Kindergarten and today I'm missing her last t-ball game.  :(  But, it will mean for a healthy baby and in the end it will work out.

That stinks you got sick, but Happy 4 Months Pregnant! :) Sounds like things are going well, and will continue to go well for the next 6 months! Almost halfway there! :D

I'm sorry you had to miss all the festivities. Was someone able to go in your place?
It's the luxury we have of having two children momma. Even though we hate to do it, there are days when one of us has to miss a big event for one child, because the other has another something or another going on. Breaks my heart each time. You're in my thoughts and prayers.

Fortunately, Kaitlyn kinda knows how this goes. We've been down a similar road when I was pregnant with Matthew I missed out on so much with Kaitlyn, and we were prepared to go through something similar again. Hopefully our third child will be much easier on her :)
