Week 16!

This week I have been thinking more and more about my infertility sisters.  I know waiting sucks and being able to write this blog every week and document the changes I'm going through makes me feel so blessed yet seems so unfair, and I wish with all of my might that everyone that wants a child, and a chance at a family could have one.


On that same note, as a finally pregnant woman, please don't tell me your birth horror stories...or how awful one gender or the other is....or any other horror story of motherhood.  We have thought it through and we decided we wanted this baby, and a family.  That comes with the good and the bad.  I know what I'm getting myself into, and I am looking forward to it.  I do have an idea how I would like my birth to go, please don't discourage me and say that I will change my mind, or any other negative message...I can do it, if I have support, besides, I don't have time for negativity.

Baby Fish is 4.5 inches long already, about the size of an avocado.  And weighs about 3.5 ounces.  Of course I need to prepare for a growth spurt, as over the next few weeks he will double in size!  If you could see him/her right now this is what they may look like...

If we wanted to we could "mess" with our baby this week by shining a light into my belly.  They can sense the light more than see it and they will move away from it.  I'm also working on talking more to my little one because they can already hear me, and anyone else that wants to say hi!

My bump is getting more noticeable, and from now on it will just continue to grow.  I have already had someone comment on my glow, due to the extra blood flowing throughout me, and my little one.  I posted this little gem on facebook and had to share it here again just because it's funny, and maybe not so true!  Cause I love watching my bump grow!
