Week 16 Pregnancy UpdateApril 27, 2011
I really haven't felt I had much to say since Friday. I do want to thank those that commented on my last post for their kind comments. I am still trying to work through my fears about this pregnancy, and while I feel moments of peace, I still have many more moments of fear than peace at this point.
That and we were busy having some Easter fun:

A couple of days ago something in my hip misaligned. Basically I feel like my hip is out of socket. I had this starting around 10 weeks with "L" so I am glad that I at least made it further this time. My chiropractor told me that my body produced too much relaxin hormone too quickly, loosening up my hip ligaments and joints more than it should have. Whatever it is, it isn't much fun, and it kind of makes me walk funny now.
Nausea... check still about 50%+ of the time. Better than worse, better than worse, and repeat. I did find out this week that it is possible to dry heave AND sneeze at the same time! Speaking of sneezing, I have been doing a ton of it, and my nose runs constantly. Guessing this is just another side effect of the condition of pregnancy that seems to hate my body for some reason.
I feel like I am complaining... a lot. I'm sorry. I know we are so incredibly blessed, and we are so excited, and happy. I seriously forgot though, how tough pregnancy seems to be on my body. I think it confirms for me that this will be my last biological child.
Ending on a positive thought - I'm fairly certain that I've been feeling little baby movements for the past week or so. You'd think being a second-timer I'd know for sure, but they are so light and so quick that I start to doubt whether it was a muscle twitching or my stomach grumbling. It actually feels very much like a muscle twitching. Over the weekend, I was almost certain though that I felt several more deliberate movements! It does finally make this all feel a bit more real.
