15 week apt. and 16 week picture

We had our 15 ½ week appointment this past week and everything is progressing beautifully. In just 3 short weeks, God willing, we will know if Baby "S" is going to be into trucks or tiaras. :-) I can’t wait! While I’m really making an effort to savor this time and enjoy these last and precious few “just the two of us” months, you better believe I am marking up my calendar to that ultrasound!

In random baby news, I feel like I’ve definitely “popped” over this past week. If you don’t believe me, just ask my jeans…dresspants…skirts…..basically the majority of my closet. Because I was tired of wearing the same pair of jeans to work 4 days in a row, today I forced myself into some dress khakis with the help of a safety pin and rubber band, and then seriously regretted the decision as my shirt kept stubbornly riding up all day(something I had not anticipated). To make matters worse, my button/safety pin contraption was definitly no fun to undo and redo on bathroom breaks, which are trips I happen to make a heaping tablespoon more than often. While the scale would call me a liar, I feel like I’ve definitely put on some pounds. It’s more likely that my body is just “redistributing” itself to suit this pregnancy.

Here are the latest stats from our apt.:

Blood pressure: 100/60
Weight Gain: A whopping 1.5 pounds so far!
Baby’s Heart rate: A healthy 160

And a 16 week picture:

Seeing your picture makes me so sad for Baby Girl number 3. I carefully documented each of my previous pregnancies and don't think I have a single pic of my belly (other than my midwife's artful sketch).

You have popped and it's cute! Time to try a belly band mama! Don't worry I am scrounging up some clothes too.
