16 Weeks

I had my 16 week OB appointment today and everything is going great! I got to hear the heartbeat again (150 bpm this time) and my doctor said everything looks and feels perfect! I feel such a sense of relief at each appointment--as if this gift has been given to me all over again!

I also got the paperwork to schedule my next ultrasound in about 2-3 weeks!

A few tidbits about the baby's development. Baby is about as wide as my palm (4 inches) and is around 6 inches long (that's about the length of our cereal spoons). She (or he) weighs about 4 ounces (just about as much as new bar of soap). Brown fat (the special fat that aids in body heat) is being deposited and in the next few weeks she'll be able to move her eyes from side to side!

Thank you for continuing to pray for us! Your prayers and support and love are keeping us filled with joy, peace, and hope.

  1. Just think, in four weeks you'll be halfway there! I am fourteen weeks now and I just read Paul your blog. It's crazy to know that in two weeks our baby will be that BIG. No way, he said!
