Bring on June 25th!!

Kevin and I went in for the 16th week appointment yesterday and everything is still going perfectly so far! The heartbeat has slowed from it's former hummingbird status (thank you, Natasha!) and is now hovering in the 145 range. They finally gave me some medicine to keep from getting sick. (Something I could have been enjoying over the last few weeks if I had just called my doctor like Kevin repeatedly asked me to do.)

One of the medicines was one that they told me would be a little more expensive so I was thinking it might be a hundred bucks or something. Imagine our surprise when we went to the Target pharmacy and it was almost $600!!! I almost passed out right there. Needless to say, I didn't get that one.

We declined the testing for genetic disorders, mostly because I don't want to stress while waiting for the results. The first three months of pregnancy were stressful enough. I need to relax for awhile! Anyway, the ultrasound will detect anything major so we'll pray for a healthy baby and have faith in the process.

Big ultrasound is June 25th -- only 2 short weeks away! I can't wait!!!

In the meantime, another belly pic. I completely forgot to take a 14 week shot, so if you scroll back down to 12 weeks, you can see a big change in the last month! Pretty soon, these pics will be fully clothed, so enjoy the skin while you can. ;-)

Could it be????

Well, after five weeks of non-stop sickness, it appears that week 15 may be a turning point! I haven't felt sick all day and that is really a first. The sickness has been beyond bad.

I don't think any news I have could be as exciting as this...I was beginning to think that it might never go away and that our poor baby would never grow. That, is definitely not the case seeing as none of my clothes are fitting and almost overnight a belly has appeared! It's so weird and hard to get used to. I can't even imagine how much it's going to grow over the next 4 1/2 months.

This is such a cool experience. We go in next Monday for our next appointment. Then, we will set our ultrasound that will tell us if it's a BOY or a GIRL.

The suspense builds....

For this week, a baby growth update:
At around 4 inches long, crown to rump, your baby now weighs about 2 1/2 ounces. He's busy inhaling and exhaling amniotic fluid, which will help develop the air sacs in his lungs. His legs are growing longer than his arms now, and he can move all his joints and limbs. That means his hands are more functional, too. Sweat glands are appearing, and although his eyelids are fused shut, he can sense light. If you shine a flashlight at your tummy, he's likely to move away from the beam. There's not much for your baby to taste at this point, but his taste buds are beginning to form.
