Last Tuesday, the 18th, I went and saw the doctor, check-up time and all looks and sounds good. I just love getting to hear that little heart beat. David did not get to come with me (he was at work, which is going well, but really long hours), but will get to come to the next one. The next appointment on February 16th is the big one. We will have our anatomical ultrasound and hopefully our baby will not be modest and we will get to find out if we are having a little man or a little lady.
If you look at the palm of your hand that is about the size of our little one. We are still amazed that God has given us this precious gift. The book (I love how much information we have on the growth and development of our babies these days) says baby is practicing sucking and swallowing and that baby is starting to put on some body fat. Talking about body changes, I thought I would post a couple pictures so all of you across the world can stare at my stomach.
16 weeks...can you see anything because I can sure feel it! Although I mainly feel like I look like I had one to many hamburgers, smoothies, brownies, etc. verses pregnant.
17 weeks...my belly seems to come and go, but the book assures me that "if you haven't done so already, you'll probably begin to outgrow your regular clothes" around this coming week. Baby seems to hide in the morning and after some good meals and going to the bathroom 102 times can be seen more in the evening. At night time David will look at my belly then rubs it and says "hi baby." (He is pretty attached! But, I am glad that he is.)
