I slept in until 11AM the other day too! Boy oh boy, I guess I needed some extra z's. My friend said, "Enjoy it while you can!" I am waking up in the middle of the night to relieve my bladder now. I guess that's a sign the baby is growing! The only fun part about waking up at 4AM is realizing you get to sleep for another 3-4 hours! It's neat how your body naturally starts training you for what's ahead - a lot of sleep interruptions.
(This next part, it was written a few days ago on Saturday morning...)
I'm still not showing. I thought I was for a second there, but unless you catch me at 11PM you wouldn't be able to tell. But I think it's normal for a first-timer to not show for a while. Plus my uterus is tipped, so maybe that's hiding it. And I still can wear all my clothes, so no complaining here!
(Now back to today...)
So, now I am showing. Saturday night we were at the BYU game and I was all bundled up in my sweater and coat and my tummy started really hurting. I thought it was something I ate, but once I unzipped my coat (...and my pants) I felt so much better, baby just needed room. I thought it was just because it was late at night, but when I woke up on Sunday morning the bump was still there - and it's here to stay. It really just popped up over night!
We went to the doctor today for our 16 week check-up and all is well! Tanner got to play doctor and check for the heartbeat. I really love the Women's Clinic I go to. All the midwives are so kind and helpful.
Just 4 more weeks and we find out what the little babe is!!! Crazy. I can't believe I'm almost half-way done. I could do 5 more of these...(<--- that was also written on Saturday morning.) Yeah, we want 6 kids, but we'll just take it one by one. Tanner is already planning when to have the next! I tell him we'll just wait and see...
Most of you think it's a girl, I still think boy, but we'll see. Cast your vote if you haven't yet (see right side up top).
The strangest thing right now is my belly growing. I can feel my skin gently stretching (like when you eat waaaay too much). And I'm slowly growing out of my jeans. These feelings are so new for me and I have to remind myself, "I'm pregnant. I haven't overeaten, this is normal." It's a fun journey!
Overall, me and baby are doing GREAT!
