16 Week Prenatal Update and Food 3/28- 4/3

Yesterday I headed to Chattanooga with my mother-in-law for my sixteen week prenatal appointment. Baby Winningham and I are both healthy and growing. My midwife was a little surprised that I have already been feeling movement. I also measured closer to seventeen weeks, but that’s ok with me. A big, strong baby is a blessing. My blood work and blood pressure were perfect. Advice for the coming month: eat (even) more protein, don’t worry about getting down the pregnancy tea if it’s too gross to handle, drink lots and lots of water while camping on the equator in a few weeks. It is hard to believe that this pregnancy will be half of the way over at my next appointment.  next Saturday we’ll be having our first and hopefully only ultrasound and will know if we’re expecting a son or daughter!
