16 Weeks


I cannot believe how awful I have been at blogging recently.
So much has happened since my last few posts and I have been awful at taking pictures of all of the wonderful weekends we have had.

Last weekend was my sister-in-law Laura's wedding and it was absolutely amazing!! 

Here are some pictures from the day!

Everything was absolutely gorgeous!!

Here is a candid of Rob and I at the rehearsal dinner. <3 him!

So now an update at 16 weeks:

We have been doing really well. Yesterday was Maveric's due date and Pregnancy and Infant Loss Rememberance Day so that was very hard on us, but otherwise we are doing ok. Baby is still in there with a strong heartbeat! 

Our next appointment is on Saturday October 22nd and our Anatomy Scan is scheduled for 11/14. We are very excited to find out whether we are having a little boy or girl and start really planning!

So far I have had some dreams about baby boys but not OUR baby boy. Just babies in general. Rob has had a dream about us with a baby girl, so who knows!! 

I am definitely showing now. Being a bigger girl to begin with has certainly made the bump obvious :) But that's ok - my belly is hard and definitely starts a lot higher than pre-pregnancy. Sometimes I catch myself with my hands on my belly - I think just to remind myself that this is really real. 

Being pregnant after a loss is so scarey. I have been over analyzing every twinge, cramp, ache, pull, etc. I just keep trying to remind myself that my uterus is growing and everything is moving. The pangs never really last more than a few seconds so I keep trying to remind myself that everything SHOULD be sore! I am just a paranoid person in general and keep trying to remind myself that we got this far, changes are we are bringing this baby home!! 

We are so in love and really looking forward to the next ultrasound on 11/14! Yay!

I, too, am a bit paranoid about twinges and pangs and aches...having 2 previous losses. But...I am much happier & healthier now & just feel in my heart that this one is a keeper! 16 weeks is awesome! I can't wait to get there!!
