{16.5 weeks}

It's hard to believe I'm already 16.5 weeks!  I had my 16 week appointment this past Tuesday and scheduled my 20 week ultrasound for November 29.  I'm getting really excited about it.  We are planning on finding out the gender (as long as baby cooperates), but we're hoping the ultrasound technician will put it in a sealed envelope for us.  We're hoping to plan a little get together with family and some friends where we can all find out together.  The original plan was to take the envelope to a bakery to have the bake a cake with either blue or pink filling and to cut the cake at the get together.  The only trouble is, it's proving a little difficult to find a time when all of our family can be there, so I'm not sure if it's all going to work out yet.

My appointment went well.  My blood pressure has been really low, which has been a shock, since I've always been in the 120/60 range (or higher at times).  It was 100/68 at my appointment on Tuesday and it has been in the same range at my last couple appointments as well...it's interesting.

Well, I wasn't sure if I would be able to bring myself to do it, but here is my first belly pic.  I look about the same here as I did when I was 20 weeks with Kaydence. lol  This photo is a little bit of an optical illusion, so you may have to look closely to figure it out.  It's still tripping me up and I'm the one who took it.  hehe

I had to do a double take to see which side the belly was on haha! Well I've read you can show faster after the first baby & I'm going to be 10 weeks in a couple days, but I swear I have a bump already. Not sure if it's a baby bump or an auntie anne's pretzel bump. That's a little embarrassing :)
