16 Weeks

Yes, again I am late on my 16 week post.

16 weeks ~ 4 months! WOW!!! This pregnancy is going by quickly, and there is still so much to look forward to. The most exciting news is that I felt my little pumpkin move for the very first time on Monday, April 19. I was squatting in front of my closet picking out a pair of shoes when I felt the first little "flutter". That's the best way I know how to describe it. It was wonderful. In the last week I've felt a few more little movements here & there. It' pretty cool. I love it!!!

15 Weeks

I am 15 weeks today! Yeah! Moving right along quite nicely :o)

I went shopping last weekend and bought a few new maternity clothes. I have a small stockpile of clothes that were passed on to me. Some fit great & some I've just tucked away again. But it's always nice to get a few things of your own. So, I bought a pair of jeans, a pair of khakis, 2 tank tops, 3 shirts, a new Bella Band, and what I thought was a dress, but really turned out to be a swim cover-up. LOL! I kept it anyway. It'll come in handy this summer.

My next appt. was scheduled for the 27th, but I got a phone call yesterday & all the midwives will be in a mandatory meeting, so I had to move it. Since I'll be out of town shortly after I've rescheduled for the 6th of May. At that appt. I should be able to schedule my ultrasound appt. We're excited and anxious to find out what we're having, but we're still looking at 4-5 weeks out. Just like everything else, that day will come quickly.

Week 14 - ♥

Well, today was the day! We heard our baby's heartbeat for the very first time! I am still on a high from it. It was so amazing. I was expecting it to take a while, that she would have to search a bit. Nope! Not at all, it was right there when she put the doppler down on my tummy. Baby was moving around a lot, so it started out loud, and then you could hear it get quite, then louder again. It was so great! What a great day! :o)

13 Weeks

Again, behind the ball on my posts. I'll be 14 weeks in 2 days! But I'll have stuff to post on Thursday, as I have another Dr. appt. & am hoping to hear the heartbeat. It is so frustrating not fitting in my clothes! My regular clothes have become too uncomfortable to wear, and the maternity clothes that I do have are still too big. I bought a Bella Band, and I do love it. It helps for the most part. I need to go get another one though b/c I wear this like almost every day. I'm also ready to go shopping for some maternity clothes. What I have was either mine from when I was prego w/ Brielle, or has been passed down to me. Some of the clothes are great, but I having a really hard time w/ the jeans. I heard that Old Navy has good maternity jeans, so I think I'm going to start there. I'm definitely to that point now though where there is no mistaking that I'm pregnant. I'm feeling like if people had doubts before whether or not I was prego or just putting on some pounds, I think they're seeing me & saying "Yep! She's pregnant!" At least I hope that's how it's going. I guess if not now it won't be long before they start figuring it out. LOL!

Well, I'll write more on Thursday. It should be a big day for us either way. We'll either hear the heartbeat or get an ultrasound. So at least I feel like something will be going on.
