16 week appointment...

Friday was my 16 week midwife appointment. It was a really special one because my mommy came with me!! We had to wait awhile because Ann was really backed up (i should have guessed when they called earlier that week trying to reschedule me to another day). But it wasn't so bad, mom and i got a chance to chat anyway. They weighed me (i have lost a pound, so my total weight gain so far is only one pound!!! where is that huge swollen belly coming from then??!!! must be all uterus! ;) Mom met Ann, Ann found the baby (right below my belly button!! ;), and we listed to the heart beat....it was SO much louder this time! Mommy was taking pictures the whole time, and Ann was ready to pose :) We discussed my questions on Vitamin A (i thought i was getting too much) and Hypnobirthing. And now only 4 more weeks until my next appointment! What is so strange is that by my next appointment i will be half way done with this 40 week journey!! The first trimester went by so slow for us, i think just because we were so nervous about the baby staying healthy. BUT this 2nd trimester is a whole nother story....it is going by SO fast...we don't mind... WE just cant wait to meet this little person!!!!

I go for my 16 week appointment next week! I love reading your blog so I can see how you are doing through all of this, I am waiting for my baby belly! I can still wear my normal clothes but I am ready to have the belly! What is your address? I am coming home in April for a baby shower, you do not have to bring anything to the shower but I would love to see you can we can compare notes on "Green" Ideas for baby. I am thinking about doing glass bottles instead of plastic ones!

What kind of bedding are you going to do? I have been looking at bedding but have not really found anything that is cute and environmentally responsible. Do you have any suggestions?
