12 Weeks

I saw my midwife, Jane, today for my 12 week checkup. I lost one pound, all of my lab work came back fine, and the baby's heart rate was 155 beats per minute. Jane was pleased.

Jane said that the nausea and vomiting should stop soon. Then she told me to try to gain weight. Ha! I told her that I am trying. Pregnancy is the only time in my life that I am told to try to gain weight. Any other time pounds jump on me uninvited.

I go back again in one month.
