  • Hi Everyone!

    I went in for my 16 wk 3 day appt today.

    I have lost weight, I lost 3 pounds. I went from 152.8 to 149.8. Doc was a bit concerned, but he stated that it would all catch up to me.. lol

    Heard heartbeat.. baby is doing great.
    I also had to go to the hospital to get bloodwork done for the Quad Scan. Which is the test that tests for spina bifida and other birth defects. Doctor said its commonly done between 16 and 20 weeks.

    I go back on July 10th. I go in for my ultrasound at that point as well! I cant wait to FINALLY see this lil bean and tell if she's a she or he's a he!

    So there's my update!

  • Yeah that is great your dr is not worried. With my first baby I kept getting grief from the midwives I was not gaining enough so I was downing ice cream!
    Still only gained 28 lbs n baby was 7lbs just fine!With my second I have lost a couple pounds since I have been exercising again hope I do not get grief for it! I ate a little roasted chicken maybe my weight will go back up!
