I'm not exactly sure how I can already be 17.5 weeks along! In one sense, I have felt every minute of this pregnancy but God has been good to have the weeks go by quickly! It helps to be busy. :)
We had an appointment yesterday and got to hear our little one's heartbeat again which always makes me so relieved. The nurse did have a hard time finding it at first because the baby kept kicking at the doppler. :) It was a nice and strong 152 beats per minute.
I've felt the baby too! It's not very consistent, but especially after I eat and drink, I can feel little movements in there. So amazing. Such an incredible feeling! I primarily feel this little one on the left side of my stomach.
I still haven't made it a full two days without throwing up. This little one is holding onto that nausea! With Nathan, I was queasy until about 14 or 15 weeks but I don't think I threw up past 14 weeks. I'm thankful it's not three times a day anymore, though. And honestly, I could throw up this whole pregnancy and still be fine with it. I'm so thankful to be sick! ;)
I still haven't had any cravings or aversions. With Nathan, I could not stand eggs or chicken but I've liked them both so far with this one. I feel like I'm more tired, but I think a big part of that is that I'm not able to sleep for 18 hours a day with this one. ;)
Nathan adores his "Brother Sister" and kisses my stomach very regularly. Right now he keeps saying that he wants a boy but he spent the first part of this pregnancy saying it was a girl. Although, today he told me that he thinks it's "a grill".
And we will know on November 5th which one it is!!! :) I cannot, CANNOT wait. We're going to wait and find out at a gender reveal party that night. :) I'm praying these next three weeks fly past!!
