I’m 17 weeks pregnant and so far, all is well. I am still a bit tired. Okay, sometimes I’m exhausted. I’m also hungry most of the time. I’m constantly trying to figure out how to get enough to eat without eating much junk food. Because of the heat and pregnancy combined, my feet are pretty swollen, but I’m dealing with it just fine. My next doctor’s appointment is Tuesday, July 2, and it’s just a routine check. I guess they’ll measure me and listen to the babies hearts on a Doppler. The big ultrasound, where they look at the babies’ anatomy, is not scheduled yet, but it will be around week 20.
I recently read something where the author said something along the lines of “The thing that most prepared me for parenthood was becoming a parent.” I hope that is also true for me, because I don’t feel very prepared right now. I know, I have months before I’ll be parenting babies, and it will all come along as they grow, but today I’m somewhat nervous about it. These times call for intense prayer.
