I am 16 weeks pregnant. Heart beat was 155 at this last visit, which I did not miss, unlike last weeks appointment. I had my AFP test this week and we are hoping and praying for "no news is good news" but if we hear from them, we will take it one step at a time.
The kids are still very excited for the baby and frankly, I can't even believe it is happening. I started wearing maternity clothes this week. Of course I have to buy new clothes as I cleared everything, as in all my maternity clothes, out quite some time ago. Although now that I am clearly pregnant it seems to be far more exciting than in those early days. I have started to feel fluttering of my passenger, inconsistently but no question about it.
Will asked me a few weeks ago if he could be in the room when the baby came. I was slightly dumbfounded at the thought, and did in fact ponder it for a few moments. As in "how would that work?", not as in, "we need to figure it out so he can be there," kind of way.
I proceeded to tell him that "um, it is gross."
He responded with, "What is gross?"
Another pause..."It is messy."
He responded, "But what is gross?"
I quickly retort with, "It is bloody."
He finally responds with, "Oh, I changed my mind."
And we were off that subject.
Here is hoping that none of them ask if they can nurse. Not that there is anything wrong with it.
