Well, I made it to 16 weeks. This is the same week that I lost one of my pregnancies. I have been counting down to this week. I think somewhere in my mind I felt if I made it through this week I could then begin getting attached to this baby. I do feel myself much more excited about this baby and a bit less worried. I purchased a baby heart doppler this week so that I can hear the little one's heart beat. It helps ease my mind every time I hear the little flutter.
Ironically the same day I got the Doppler, I began feeling movement from the baby. It is such a neat feeling. I also scheduled my 20 week sonogram on my birthday (September 10th). I thought knowing what the baby is would be a great birthday present. I am so anxious to know what sex this baby is. I told my husband we were going shopping for baby clothes as soon as we get out of the doctor's appointment.
All in all it has been a good week. I am looking forward to the weeks to come.
