Have I Felt Any Movements?

So far, I started feeling little flutters and kicks around 13 weeks, but they weren’t very consistent. Some days I would feel maybe one nudge and I might not feel another nudge until three days later. This continued on until 16 weeks. Around 16 weeks I definitely felt kicks everyday but maybe once or twice. Not at 17 weeks, I feel the baby throughout the day especially at night time and when I lean back on the couch.

How Am I Growing?

Pregnancy Update: I haven’t really haven’t gained much weight. I’ve gained 4 lbs total and didn’t gain any weight in the first trimester. My nutritionist says that I should gain around pound a week in my second and third trimester. I haven’t been nauseous since I’ve been in my second trimester so I can pretty much eat what I want. Except for crab legs, I still believe our baby doesn’t like them and I am not trying to puke again.

Not Finding Out Our Baby’s Sex

We will not be finding out the sex of our baby until birth, so I would appreciate it if everyone stopped asking. We decided to go this path because we thought it would be more exciting. My last two pregnancies I was carrying boys. So this pregnancy will be interesting because we got pregnant naturally (truly a God’s gift from heaven).

Given my previous pregnancy history and my incompetent cervix, I will be having cervical length checks every two weeks until around 26/28 weeks. I recently had my 16 week cervical check and my cervix was measuring almost 5cm long. We could also see all three TAC bands placed. Check out my photos down below.

  5. Ahhhhh! Look at that little bug! So sweet. And you look amazing, as always! I love ultrasound pictures. It’s so fun that you’re not finding out. We had three boys and then finally a baby girl. I never did wait to find out because I was too impatient! But it would be the most exciting surprise in the delivery room.
    My oldest has been to several Niners games, but my two middle boys are with dad in SF right now for their FIRST game!! Both have Goodwin cards in their pockets with a sharpie, in hopes of an autograph, haha! I told them not to get their hopes up, he’s got a game to play! But hey, you never know!! They’ll be in section 143, row 20…wink, wink. We all LOVE the Goodwins and are so grateful you’re Niners!! Congrats on the healthy pregnancy thus far, can’t wait to hear and see more.
