- I had my 16-week OB appointment today and my nurse couldn't find the baby's heartbeat. So she got the portable ultrasound and my doctor and I cried uncontrollably until the doctor came in and saw what a hot mess I was and then found the heartbeat in under 30 seconds. Holy fuck.
- I had my first (probably of many) dizzy spells this morning while trying to get Jackson dressed. It involves turning ashen gray, sweating profusely, and gaining the superpower of extreme tunnel vision all very quickly. KB was still home and came in to take over so I could sit down. Pregnancy is so fucking beautiful, y'all. My doctor advised me to eat more salt. Okay. I like salt.
- The anatomy scan is in 3 weeks and I am still undecided if I want to know the gender of the baby or not. There's no good reason to find out other than curiosity. Still thinking about it.
- I have a few months of very slow work and have had numerous requests to take on more -- and am declining. I need time to nap. And get another nursery put together. And nap.
