16 Week Pictures and Updates

Here are the latest pictures of my belly! Doesn't look like much growth over the 14 week pictures, but I definitely feel like my belly is growing.

Ben wanted to jump in on this one...

For updates this week, started wearing maternity jeans and am loving it!! I had been wearing a belly band (thanks to Erin!) for several weeks, and could have continued, but I felt like I was just fidgeting with my pants all day. The maternity pants are so much more comfortable to have on all day. I also ordered some maternity shirts from old navy, and am feeling much more comfortable in those as well. It's not that my belly is super big, but the extra room in the maternity shirt feels so much more comfortable than my regular shirts.

Also, I got a really exciting present this week - a Babyplus Prental Education System. Babyplus is one of our clients at Compendium and after Sarah Seberry, one of my coworkers, met with them last week they gave her a Babyplus sytem to give to me! It is basically a device that plays sounds for the fetus to hear, similar to the mother's heartbeat. As the fetus develops and hears the sound it begins learning by distinguishing the sound of the device from the sound of my heart beat. It is worth $149, so I was incredibly excited to receive this gift and also for the benefits our little boy/girl will receive from my using it.

Only 23 more days till we find out the sex! Any guesses?? I'm thinking boy, so does Ben... we'll see!
