Today I am 16 weeks and 2 days pregnant! It is amazing how much my belly has popped over the last two weeks. I feel like I am already huge! I am feeling pretty good, I can now stay up a lot later and am not nearly as tired. I am having a harder time sleeping at night, due to my growing belly, I can't even imagine how it will be in a couple months. The other day when Jayden and I were walking through the Seattle airport, a stranger asked me if I was expecting. Its pretty gutsy of people to actually ask that, but it made me happy that I look like I have a baby bump and not just getting chubby. We had our 16 week doctors appointment on Friday. It wasn't too exciting. Our doctor could only see us for a couple minutes because she got paged to a delivery. We got to hear the heartbeat though, which is always nice to check up on how our little one is doing :) We also scheduled our 20 week ultrasound to find out if it is a boy or girl! Everything thinks it is a girl, so we will see. I think the hardest thing about being pregnant so far is learning to accept my pregnant body. I have always been a little self conscious about my weight and the last couple of years I have really slimmed down and felt really good about myself. It is hard watching my body change, but I am learning how to embrace it!
Here are some pictures of my baby belly:
