This is day number 116 and I'm 17 weeks pregnant!
I'm feeling Good. Yep, I've been in a pretty good mood lately. This pregnancy feels like it's sort of moving along. But I am so emotional that its crazy! I have never felt this way. Where's the directions to the insane asylum? Because I'm about headed there. I'm too emotional to socialize in public. Oh, by the way, my new favorite channel is Lifetime. Love the movies!
The other day after dinner my husband and I were cleaning up and I asked him to throw out the trash. He said that he would do it later because their was a basketball game on TV that he didn't want to miss. Something that I don't care too much about. Anyway, I got so upset that he wouldn't do it right then and there that I began to cry. I went on to say that he doesn't care about me and my needs. (Like throwing out the trash is an important personal need!). I just wanted to get the kitchen clean and didn't want it to smell like garbage. I even cried out, "You don't love" and "You don't find me beautiful anymore!" Just to upset me more he just smiled, laughed and began to apologize in a sweet voice. Then he took out the garbage. I began crying even more because I felt like an idiot for making such a big deal!
By the way, I have not felt the baby move yet. Anytime I get indigestion or gas or anything I stop to see if it could be my baby. The Doctor said that I should feel my baby move any day now and that everything is normal. I feel like I'm stressing myself out about this. I know that can't be good for the baby.
We decided, my husband and I, that we will not find out the baby's sex until birth. I just think that would be even more exciting. Now, we just need to narrow down on a boy's and girl's name.
Fetal Development: This is a period of rapid growth as the fat begins to form underneath the baby's skin. Baby and placenta are about equal in size now. The tiny heart is pumping as much as 25 quarts of blood a day! The reflexes are probably in place now as the baby sucks, swallows and blinks!
Maternal Changes: The uterus is about 1 1/2 to 2 inches below your belly button. The baby is going through a growth spurt and chances are, you may be gaining too! Average weight gain is between five and ten pounds at this point. Feeling fluttering in your uterus means that you may be feeling your baby move... any time now!
