so today marks 17 weeks along.
I debated if I should post this in color or black & white, but since my last preggo post was in black & white, color it became. I took these pictures this morning, when I finally rolled out of post-vacation slumber. We're both still pretty tired, but I didn't want to waste the morning away in bed. Besides I have to go work come Monday morning. Hooray for "Labor" Day right?
current stats: 125.5 lbs, 34 in circumference
wearing size small maternity clothes (love elastic waistbands, they are my friend!!)
realized airplane rides, especially the descent, are not my friend. I threw up twice on our way home (into San Francisco and Orange County), and neither time was turbulent.
experiencing a little bit of lower extremity swelling. but with feet elevation or walking, it gets better. work is going to be a pain later on, I'm sure, since I'll either be standing in one place for extended periods of time, or sitting on high stools where elevating my feet might be hard.
hitting puberty all over again with the acne, both on my forehead and my chest. been using face wash on both areas in addtion to showers to combat it. it was also pointed out to me that with pregnancy, there is a tendency for pregnancy-induced gingivitis. so now I've got to brush and floss even more so now to avoid problems later.
I've developed a fuzzy belly. and a little bit of a fuzzy line going down the middle too. I think it's payback for making fun of my friend Sarah when she told me she had it. She laughed uncontrollably when I told her.
can't think of anything else. but I'm sure I'll be in for much more down the road.
next appointment is the sonogram, set for September 12. then September 19 for the regular monthly visit. need to go in sometime this coming week for my AFP blood test.
