16 Weeks

We’re soaring through our 16th week with gratitude for every moment as our little one continues to grow and develop.

I felt the first flutters of movement this week and it was another one of those moments where I’m like, “Is this real?” And it is. It is real and amazing and scary and thrilling all at the same time. It’s surreal to think about this avocado-sized person floating around inside me. Here are a few more points on our progress.

  • 1 trimester down, 2 to go
  • 5 pregnancy/parenting books on the nightstand
  • 0 of those books read (though several started)
  • 6 ultrasounds
  • 1200 (give or take a couple) trips to bathroom
  • 8 names seriously considered
  • 6 names seriously eliminated
  • 4 brands of prenatal vitamins tried (still looking for THE one)
  • 1 prenatal massage enjoyed immensely (thank you, Crystal!)
  • 1 bizarre pregnancy dream
  • 5 months till we get to meet the little one in person

  1. Congratulations … I am so excited for ya’ll! I’ve read all your “baby” posts and wow … what a roller coaster ride! As Matt said, perhaps the doctor/nurse should change their policy and schedule a follow up visit before offering such devastating news that could have resulted in an immediate termination! So glad that things worked out, and pregnancy is such an amazing time. I loved being pregnant, and you’ll read and get all kinds of advice. I’ll just pass on one simple thing … folic acid! It may not be as important after the first trimester but I’ve always heard it’s a good thing.

    Enjoy this time and we look forward to the new member of your crew!

  2. Thank you so much for this thoughtful note, Cheryl! Your kind words and encouragement mean a lot to us. And yes, we’ve been taking in the folic acid so thank you for the reminder :o). All’s well and we’re just enjoying this new season of life together. We hope you guys are doing well and enjoy keeping in touch. :o)
