We had our checkup last Monday (me at 16 weeks then) everything's good except that there's a contraction again on my uterus. Thankfully, this time we're not as alarmed as before as my OB just told me to avoid excessive standing and walking. The truth is before this checkup I was so worried that the OB might tell me that the baby is in the same circumstance as Miya before. Well, yes I also have contractions now which my OB has given me Duvadilan for (to keep the uterus soft). I have to drink Duphaston every time I feel my tummy is contracting, that is, it's hard. But at least the baby's position is not low lying as with Miya, so I guess that's why my OB was not as alarmed. I was actually given clearance to go to the beach this weekend. Weee!!!
As for symptoms, the vomiting is much lessened now but I still experience it. My sense of taste is still wacko. Just today when I drank water I tasted a burnt taste when swallowing. I thought the glass I was using wasn't properly cleaned so I asked our waiter for a new one. But when I went out for lunch, the same thing happened again - that's on a different glass, and presumably different source of drinking water. Bizaare! Surprisingly, my sense of smell is not that sensitive unlike my first pregnancy.
Our OB tried to show us the genitals of the baby but unfortunately it still cannot be seen at that time.

|Here's a view of the genitals, photo taken from his/her bumbum. I think it's a burger like Miya's but the hubby thinks those are balls. Se also the big white bump, that's the contraction in my uterus.|
I feel a little bit guilty because with Miya I was able to blog about my pregnancy almost every week. But this time around my last post about my pregnancy was a month ago when I was just 12 weeks pregnant. Oh, Baby Minion don't think that you are less loved because of that. I love you and Ate Miya so very much! I think more of my baby, I was posting more then because I wanted to document how I looked hehehe. So without further ado, here are some of my photos the past weeks.
|At 14 weeks and 6 days. Compared to my first pregnancy, I have a big bump around this time. Then it was just like I have a big puson. I think I started to have a baby bump for this pregnancy around the 12th week hahaha!|
|At 15 weeks and 1 day|
