16 weeks!

I can't believe how fast time is flying by! I remember when I made our first doctor's appointment. We had to wait like 3 weeks before it was actually time to go and I told Eric that it was forever away and would never get here. Now the appointments are always right around the corner. And as soon as we get to the New Year I know that June is going to come up on us faster than we will be ready for!

We had our 16 week checkup on Thursday. Ali went with me and got to hear the baby's heartbeat, which she thought was pretty cool! The baby is still doing good. We can't wait to find out what we are having next month!
I'm finally starting to show so that other people can recognize it (unfortunately our camera got left in Wapato at Thanksgiving and we haven't gotten it back yet, so no pics yet, sorry!). I gained quite a bit of weight since my last appointment, but considering I didn't gain any weight (and possibly lost a little) between my first 2 appointments I guess it's not that bad. It's still less than 1 lb a week for the whole pregnancy. I continue to enjoy feeling good and not being sick all the time! I now battle with heartburn and finding out that most of my favorite foods cause it, which is almost the worst thing in the world for me!! No more spicy food for this mama. I am also enjoying waking up way too early in the morning! I usually wake up between 5:00 and 6:00 am, so I enjoy some quiet time on the couch with my Lifetime Christmas movies (which Eric wont watch unless he's forced too!).
