16 wks!

I am 16 wks pregnant! Our baby is due Nov. 14th and we are soo excited to welcome our new little one.
We feel extremely blessed, humbled and still somewhat shocked. Although we had been planning this for quite some time, it took us almost 2 years to conceive. Talk about a lesson in perseverance and patience, faith and character building! After visiting a fertility dr. 8 m0nths ago, I got some answers and we became more hopeful. I learned to trust God in this matter and to realize that this Was going to happen-when He wanted it to!
Max is excited and curious about the "baby in mommy's tummy." He keeps asking what "her" name is. No, we do not know if its a boy or girl & don't think we will find out either!
My sister, Mindy, just had her precious baby girl on our mom's b-day! We got to share a little time being pregnant together and how wonderful it will be to have 4 cousins so close together! Christmas at Gma Lila's & Gpa 'Mutache's will be full, fun and frazzled with a 3 and 2 yr. old, 6 mo. old and a 1 mo. old!

Baby is about 4 1/2 inches and weighs 2 3/4 ounces. Fine lanugo hair covers baby's head fingernails are formed. Legs are longer than arms and both are moving. Baby may suck its thumb.

Me: fatigue, heartburn, upset stomach, sciatic nerve pain, food "issues", clumsiness, forgetfullness, emotional, (pass the tissues please), itchy skin, frequent & annoying urination. Just to name a few.. Best part- I have just begun to feel movement, slight "fluttering"! :)
