Well, the big day is almost here! Monday we have our 20 week appointment and with that comes the gender reveal ultrasound. I thought it’d be fun to let you guys get your guesses in first though!
So here we go:
Yes. Nauseous all day every day until 17 weeks and then nauseous about 50% of the day for weeks 18 & 19.
Yes, mainly weeks 17-19.
It took me until 16 weeks to get back to my starting weight after losing some when I felt sick all day. Since then I’ve gained about 3 pounds.
Not really. I have one pair of maternity jeans that I wear if I need to wear pants. Otherwise, regular stuff is working. I did buy some shorts that are larges instead of mediums to wear to crossfit just because they’re more comfortable…but they’re not maternity. I think they’ll be coming soon though. I need to find some tank tops that are more comfortable for both everyday wear and workouts.
It’s visible to me…and to people who really know what my stomach used to look like. But to others, especially strangers, probably not. Also keep in mind that I’m 5’11 and have a long torso.
Not really. I usually have to pee 2x at night and sometimes I have trouble falling back to sleep after I get up to feed the dogs around 5:30…but not much trouble falling asleep yet.
Aches and pains?
Aside from being sore from Crossfit, not really. My lower back and hip bother me occasionally, lower back especially from weeks 6-16, but both of those things also bothered me before I was pregnant…
Cravings and aversions?
Carrots and avocado are still not sounding great to me. Chipotle and dessert always sound good.
Baby’s heart rate?
From what I can remember…134, 144, 140 BPM at various appointments.
Overall pretty good. I had a few emotional breakdowns around weeks 16-17 when I wasn’t sure I was ever going to stop feeling nauseous.
Can’t wait to find out!!
Enjoy your weekend!
