Week 16

This past week I've started to feel better. I still get nauseous sometimes and my head still hurts from time to time, but overall I'm really starting to feel more like myself again. I think it might be time to pull out my maternity pants tomorrow. My regular pants still fit and I'm not uncomfortable in them, but because they all have a high waist, they "cut" my belly in a weird way. It seems as though my belly has shrunk compared to last week's but I was wearing a looser dress this weekend.
I'm looking forward to next week for a number of reasons. My 16-week prenatal visit is scheduled for tomorrow. I have to go to my GP's because my obstetrician said I could wait to come back to her until I'm 20 weeks along since this is not a high-risk pregnancy. Seeing as we would only be finding out the gender when I'm 20 weeks along and I can't wait that long, we've planned a non-medical ultrasound on Tuesday. Hopefully we'll find out the sex of the baby, so keep those legs apart, baby! (This is also the only time ever in our baby's life that I'll want it to have its legs apart.) This ultrasound will also be in 3D, so we're hoping to get some pretty pictures and actually see what our baby's face looks like...
