16 Weeks

There isn’t much to report this week in the land of pregnancy, however J’s emotions have definitely been all over the place this week. Up and down and rocking side to side, she’s been on an emotional roller coaster. She says she feels more emotional this trimester so far than she did in the first trimester. She has been battling her anxiety, since she’s been pregnant she is unable to take her medication to calm her anxiety attacks. Deep breathing and meditation don’t help either. So for now we’re just riding it out, but I think she’s planning on asking if there’s anything she can take in one-off situations at our next appointment. It can’t be healthy for baby to be riding along on an anxiety attack!

Yesterday in particular was a rough day for her: she got a lot more work piled up on her desk, her boss is no longer with the company, two of her good friends in her department are moving departments, her blood work appointment did not go well as the lady had to move the needle around in her arm and really hurt her, and to top it all off we hit a cat that ran out in the middle of the road on our way to the fabric store with my sister. It got up and ran off, and J went back to look for it and it was nowhere to be found, so I think it might be OK. I hope so. It was an emotional day for sure! 😦

As for J’s breathing and dizziness, it is still there but she has her appointment with the cardiologist all set up for next week. Hopefully it is nothing to worry about and everything is OK. She still has to set up her appointment with the pulmonologist.

So its been an emotional week, I sure hope next week will be better for us and our little avocado.

Baby’s about the size of an avocado this week, approximately 4.5 inches long and weighing about 3.5 ounces. The heart is now pumping about 25 quarts of blood through that tiny body each day and baby’s future hair pattern is already forming on his or her scalp. Also, baby’s eyes and ears are moving into their final positions on baby’s head.

Baby’s getting big in there!
