18 weeks...

Other than this awful cold, things have been uneventful.  Work is a bit stressful but that's all.  I'm trying to start planning and cleaning up.  I'm signing J and I up for some classes at the hospital. Childbirth classes, bringing home baby and the hospital tour.  They will all be in October.  Can't believe how quickly time is moving by.  I've started a list of baby items we'll be needing.  J is a bit shocked by the price tag but it is what it is.  I'm also needing to look into childcare.  I was thinking a company would be better but it might be too pricey.  Home day care seems more affordable.  Just worried about the safety of our baby.

Symptoms I felt this week:
  • Breasts don't hurt as much but nipples seem very sensitive
  • Tired but because of this cold
  • Stomach is definitely getting bigger
  • Sneezing and coughing still.  Lots of congestion

17 weeks...

So, we had our OB appointment last Wed when I was officially 17 weeks.  This app was only to listen to the heartbeat.  With it came lots of kicking from the little one.  I still don't feel the kicking yet but hoping soon.  On Friday I started having a sore throat and feeling bad.  By nightfall, it was a full blown cold,  I've been miserable all weekend and even now.  All I can take is Tylenol.  Whoop dee do.  I might as well take nothing.  Well, it's for the greater good, right?  I just keep trying to tell myself that over and over again.

Symptoms I felt this week:
  • Breasts don't hurt as much since I bought bras that fit
  • Tired but probably because of this nasty old cold
  • Stomach looks a bit bigger.  
  • Sneezing and coughing from this crazy cold
