I can’t believe I am already 16 weeks pregnant! Little baby is growing along nicely as you can see! I have definitely popped these last couple of weeks. My stomach went from flat and easy to hide to POP and I basically had to tell everyone because it was getting so obvious. The news of this little angel absolutely knocked me off my feet. This pregnancy has been so weird and different than my other two. I didn’t find out I was pregnant until I was 7 weeks along and didn’t go to the doctor for the first time until I was 10 weeks. I have been very sick, but that has slowed up a little bit in the last couple of weeks. I’m hoping it will move on completely soon. To say we have been shocked about this pregnancy is an understatement. I’m not getting into logistics here, but even my doctor said “God must have really wanted you to have a baby right now.”
I guess He sis, because here we are with a healthy baby at 16 weeks! We were definitely planning to have another child, just not this soon, however, God’s timing is perfect and we are getting so excited about our their little nugget! All I can think about it that there is another little Hampton or Sophie in there and they have been such huge blessings to us that I just can’t wait to meet this one! I have felt the baby move a couple of times this week which has been so sweet! I love feeling baby movements. It’s like a reassurance in a way. I haven’t gained any weight yet, but as my nurse reminded me – it will come soon enough. I think the sickness has played a big part in the fact that I haven’t started piling the weight on yet. Of course, in both of my previous pregnancies, I did so well in the beginning and then gained a lot at the end. That may be the case again.
I am going back for blood work next week and then we will find out what the baby’s gender is two weeks after that. I’ll be close to half way by then! We definitely have no preference this time, however we do have a girl name already picked out and are far from agreeing on a boy name. ;/ Why are boy names so difficult? So, if you have any suggestions, please throw them out at me!
