Midwife 16 Week Appointment

The day started off with me wondering if I'd make it out of the shower without pukeing after having a few weeks of feeling great. I ended up flying out of the shower, dumping the bathroom trash on the floor and grabbing the garbage can for a bucket. I never ended up getting sick (THANK GOODNESS!) but..... I felt like complete crap until about 1pm. I then felt pretty good the rest of the day...

We had a midwife appointment today! :o) We got to ask a few questions, got to get a few things checked out, and got a prescription for some special nipple cream :) She stated that with my symptoms now....is really a sign of how things are going to be during/after breastfeeding. They aren't horrible now.......just itch and wake me in the night ... itching. ITCH, ITCH, ITCH. :)

We also got to hear the heartbeat again........ that was spectacular!! It makes everything seem so real.

We will be having a 18-20 week ultrasound. We weren't planning on it in the beginning.... but have decided to do it. We will not be finding out the sex of the baby....we will just make sure everything is growing as it should be.

I felt the first real kick today. I've felt the baby move for quite a few weeks now on and off.... but today was the first real KICK that made me go...HEY! YOU JUST KICKED ME! lol can't wait for more.

That's it for now.........

I was just wondering if you have picked names. John and I have a boys name picked out, but I am not sure I like the girls name we picked. I wanted Emma, but I Eric and Erin have already got that name. Bella is already too close to Ella. Anyway, I just hope we dont pick the same names. That would suck. Here are the names we like. Jackson Louis Tenney for sure if it is a boy (and I am sure it is a boy), and perhaps... Emily Ann Tenney for a girl. I am just not sure that is the name I want for a girl, so I am trying to think of more for a girl. I just hope we (of all the names in the world) have not picked the same ones!!!
