My Pregnancy at 16 Weeks (4 Months)

I went to my second doctor's visit today.  As you can tell, I'm still not really showing much and haven't even gained a single pound yet.  My stomach has a little bump that I notice, but I'm still fitting in all my clothes.  Still really looking forward to the day my pants aren't fitting anymore.  I want a little buddha belly to rub :)  Anyway, way more exciting than that is that we got to hear the heartbeat today.  It was so neat to listen to the pulsing of our little baby's heart.  It makes it so easy to picture the little bugger hanging out inside my belly.

The pregnancy itself is starting to go really well.  After being horribly sick for 2 straight months, I now only have small moments of nausea and sickness.  I have much more energy and feel very motivated to do things throughout the day.  I still take regular naps, but I feel way better when I am awake.  In fact, I've been feeling so good that it was starting to become hard for me to even believe that I am even pregnant.  So, not only was hearing the heartbeat exciting, but it was very reassuring.

Once Friday is here, I will officially be in my fifth month.  I can't believe how time goes by so fast.  I feel like this journey has just begun.  Aside from buying a really nice rocker off Craigslist, I haven't even started to shop for baby things.  I think buying the house has taken up alot of that shopping time...but, even more so, we don't find out the sex for 3 more weeks, so I think I want to wait for everything until I know what we are having.  We are very excited for that day to be here.  I think Girl all day long, but the only baby dreams I have had so far have been with a baby boy.  What do you think it is?  Hmm.

And, although I haven't begun shopping for baby stuff yet, we have a very excited grandfather who has already begun his baby shopping.  We got our first package in the mail today and it was from my dad who sent his grandson, Rocky, a stuffed toy for his belated birthday, and a whole bunch of baby stuff for the little one in my belly.  We got toys, pajamas, booties, and more.  When we opened the package, we immediately got butterflies in our stomach.  This was for our very own little baby. Even though we haven't begun on the baby's room, we have already started a collection of items for it in the closet.

So thats about it in a nutshell...I'll probably be blogging much more as soon as there are more significant changes.  Hope you enjoy!!
