I’m currently 16 weeks pregnant, 35 years old, FTM, planned pregnancy.
From about 8 weeks to 12 weeks, I had pretty bad fatigue and nausea. Then I magically started feeling better, yay! I’ve had a clear NIPT and healthy nuchal ultrasound at 12 weeks, and heard the heartbeat at 14 weeks during a monthly check-in with my OB.
I do have a bit of a bump and have gained a few pounds, but otherwise have no idea what’s going on inside my body since I have few symptoms and can’t feel any movement yet. Anyone else feel like that?
I don’t have another appointment until the 20 week anatomy scan, so I’m just in limbo for the next 3-4 weeks hoping everything is progressing normally.
I asked my OB if there was anything else we needed to test between 14 weeks and 20 weeks, but she said no. Can you request an amniocentesis even if your doctor doesn’t bring it up? Is it worth it?
Definitely feeling a little anxiety because of all the unknowns.
