16 weeks and counting.......

We had our 16 week appointment today. They had so much trouble finding the heartbeat last time, and this time it was there right away. It was going at 150 beats per minute. They also drew the blood for the triple screen today. I will have those results by next monday. I had lost 1 more pound, so that wasn't too bad. I am getting ketones in my urine. I asked the Dr and he said that is a sign of starvation. Who knew I would EVER have THAT problem! I am supposed to start eating 2000 calories a day, starting now. I had been eating about 1300-1500 a day. All in all a great visit. In 4 weeks they will do the 20 week BIG ultrasound, that will tell us if all is well, and if all the parts are in place. We could find out the sex, but we won't! I am really trying to accept that this is really happening, everything is going well, and I can now just enjoy the ride. Amazing!
