Pregnancy Update: Thank y’all so much for the support and prayers. We really appreciate your kindness. Just to give you guys an update, I am currently 17 weeks.
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.
