16 Weeks

Today I am exactly 4 months and 6 days pregnant! I cant believe how fast time is going. In 3 weeks I will be 20 weeks, which is halfway through my pregnancy! December 16th I had an appointment with my midwife, which went really well. They said my blood pressure was perfect, and everything feels right on track. I also got to hear the baby's heartbeat! My midwife said the heartbeat sounded strong and healthy, and she said it felt like the baby was moving around a lot! I haven't felt the baby's movements yet, I keep waiting in anticipation for it everyday. My midwife said that I probably wont feel the baby until I am around 18-20 weeks.

 I also asked her how far along I need to be for Mike and I to get an ultrasound to find out the gender, she said she would like me to wait until 20 weeks to get an ultrasound. We are so excited to be able to see our baby for the first time through an ultrasound, and to finally find out what we are having! Everyone we have asked has said they think we are having a boy, which has also been my guess, but ya never know, we could all be completely wrong. Either way I am so excited whether we have a boy or girl.

Everyday I am feeling better and better, which is so amazing. I finally have energy again and can actually be productive. I am enjoying life a lot more now!
