    Mary and unknown (we find out TODAY!!!!)

    19w4d

    Weight Gain: 9 Pounds

    Symptoms/Conditions: This week I pulled my Siadic nerve I think it is called. My doctor put me on bedrest for a few days but I am up and running again. I had bent over and pulled it and the pain went to my back, all the way down my leg, and into my foot. My back is still sore but much better now.

    Other: Today is our big ultrasound and we get to find out what we are having. My husband and I are so excited!!!

    Tracy and Green Team baby

    16 wks, 2 days

    Weight gain: somewhere between 5-10 lbs (don't weigh regularly)

    S/C: headaches, a lot. Everything else is okay. I am exhausted by the time I go to bed, so I pass out quickly. However, when I inevitably wake in the "wee" hours to go to the bathroom, I have the hardest time going back to sleep.

    Other: U/S to determine the sex is coming up-- July 16th! DH and I are taking our 6 and 3 yr old along, since they are so excited to find out if they will have a brother or a sister.

    Next appointment: July 10th, OB; July 16th, U/S

    Try going to a swimming pool for the pain. It's something my doctor suggested that I do and it's a life saver. Helps with the swelling and back pain.
