This week I am 16 weeks along, I don’t really have much of an update other than, no, the morning sickness isn’t gone, but I am certainly getting a bit of a bump on my belly! Not very noticeable to many people because I don’t like to show it off normally…it mainly looks like I’ve eaten a lot of Mexican food. But I haven’t. And I haven’t gained any weight yet. However, I know it won’t be long until I need to buy a pair of new pants and start tipping the scale upwards. Right now I am enjoying being somewhat comfortable and fitting into my clothes 🙂
It was so surreal hearing the baby’s heartbeat this week. The fact that there is a tiny human in my belly is still hard to imagine. Jacob and I are buying our own device so that we can check the heartbeat ourselves and see what our little guy/girl is up to. At the appointment on Friday, he/she was quite active. The midwife said that I should start feeling the baby moving within the next 4 weeks. I certainly haven’t felt anything yet. If I don’t feel anything by week 20, I’ll need to let them know.
We will be getting a call this week to schedule a date to go to the hospital for the anatomy scan where we’ll find out the gender (hopefully). I can’t wait to know if it’s a he or she, so I can stop writing and saying “he or she” and “him or her.”
Overall I feel well physically and I have lots more energy than in the first trimester. Bring Christmas week on. (I will be working all but one day that week!)
Until next time…
