I had my 16 week doctors appointment yesterday. The baby’s heartrate was at 150bpm, which is great, my blood pressure was fine, and I got a flu shot. Our next appointment is on 10/28, where we will get the battery of ultrasounds to make sure everything is okay, as well as find out the gender. Only four more weeks!

      This same day, Carter FINALLY started acknowledging “five” when he counts. And then at Grandma’s house he was playing with some letters and all the sudden busts out with, “W X Y Z”.

      And as I am sitting here writing this, I think that I can feel the baby move for the first time. It’s the fun fluttery feeling that is so pleasant (versus the runner that was going no-stop, battering my ribs … funny how things haven’t changed out of womb…).
