16 weeks

I'm almost to the half way point...I never thought I'd want to rush through pregnancy; however I'm so ready to have this baby in my arms!!

Eating has been a little better, I still get sick in the mornings and nights some days--but for the most part I'm feeling much better.

My cravings have been: subway sandwiches loaded down with yummy veggies, still raw veggies with ranch, cereal with apples in it, chips and cheese dip and I love cold cold cold drinks. Still no sweets...they make me gag!!

I had my 16 weeks OB appt Wednesday, everything went good. I'm finally gaining a little weight which my dr is happy about. I also found out the big date of when we will find out what this bean is....on 12/17 we will officially know! We will have a gender dinner with family Friday evening to surprise everyone. I'm so ready, it still all seems so surreal!!

As far as sleep-Zach bought me a mattress pad and it seems to be helping some; I still get up about 10 times a night to pee, and I can officially tell when this bean is sitting on my bladder. Ouchy!!

So thankful for 16 weeks with this bean, praying for 24 more :)

There is a wives tale that states an aversion to sweets means BOY :) That's my guess...and it was true for me! Can't wait to find out what this little miracle will be!

You look AMAZING, sweetie! Thank You JESUS, for this precious little Bean! I've followed your journey for quite a long while and have been praying without ceasing, right along with you guys and soooo many who love you...even if we haven't met in person. Bless your beautiful hearts...all three of them!

My 'infertile' Daughter is also expecting...again! Bio-baby #2, another boy, is due in February. He will join 2 year old Ryden and his adopted big Brother and Sister. Miracles...ALL of them! :) (((HUGS))) G'Marella

Love that bump! Craving salts...possibly a boy!? Can't wait to find out. Last night was the first night I slept without going to the bathroom (I usually go 4-8 times a night!) once- it was amazing! I think the baby moved up and off the bladder finally!

That bump is getting bigger! You look great!! I felt the exact same way...I wanted to enjoy my pregnancy, but at the same time I wanted it to just hurry up so that I could have my prize!

Yay for 16 weeks! I'm so jealous about the gender reveal party...that was never something we did 9 or almost 14 years ago...such an awesome idea, love it. Here's to many more continued weeks of your Lil Bean all warm, snug and cozy. Take good care and enjoy this holiday season as a preggo lady! God bless!

Ashley said...

Still look as cute as ever preggo! I can't wait to hear what you are having!

Congratulations!! It's been a long while since I've been here! I have been looking for more success stories to post on my blog! Would you be interested in sharing yours? Or perhaps waiting til your little one is born? It would be such an inspiration! Thanks in advance!
