So much on my mind...

I am feeling better.  I am afraid to type that but I am.  I get a few waves of nausea before I eat (probably because I've waited too long) but the majority of the time I am pretty good.  I also have been able to wait a little longer between meals without having a gag-fest.

I used the doppler again.  No, I am not obsessed.  It is so reassuring to hear that little heartbeat. 

In 9 days we find out the gender.  I usually have to know EVERYTHING; however, I am being drawn to not finding out.  Which I know isn't an option because Matt wants to know and I want to know BUT how awesome would it be to find out when the kid pops out!  We find out June 10th.  I CANNOT believe I am already at this point. 

I still haven't felt the baby move.  I know it is still early but I hear of people saying how much they felt he/she move so early and yada yada yada...and I cannot cannot compare my situation with theirs!  I also found myself comparing 13 week ultrasound pictures to other 13 week sono pics to see how my amniotic fluid compares.  I HAVE to quit that!

I do have a lot on my mind.  My TMJ is acting up again...guess I have been grinding my teeth at night.  My mom said something the other day about five months...and I thought to myself - that isn't a long time but that is how much I have left of this pregnancy!  It is going by too fast!  We have some tough decisions to make this week regarding our house and where we will land if we sell.  I am 99% sure we will put it up for sale but I am procrastinating because it is just a big step.  Anyway...I am stressing...money, house...blah blah blah...

Tomorrow I am 17 weeks.  SEVENTEEN weeks!  No way.

Yeah, pregnancy can really aggrivate TMJ, so if you don't already have a retainer or night guard, I highly recommend getting one. Or if you ahve one and haven't been wearing it, start wearing it.

You get your sono on our 10th wedding anniversary! Great day all around, I'd say!

I didn't officially feel Jillian move until 20 weeks. I suppose I had those little flutters but I refused to acknowledge them because that could be so many other things. But on the night I had my 20 week ultrasound, I was lying in bed and felt it. And it was the "Wow, now that was a foot" kind of thing.

The women who feel their babies kick early are usually super skinny. Like, size 2/3 skinny. I didn't feel Bayley kick for a while, but when you feel it, you will know. :) In the beginning, it feels like a flutter. The most exciting part is when you are further along and you think they may kick a hole in your belly. :) I loved that part of pregnancy.
