15 weeks today ...16 weeks on Sunday

Sorry its been so long since my last post, but to catch you up on what is happening in our lives, Jamie was in NJ on Tuesday, he worked late last night shooting an infomercial for a show product, and we leave tomorrow to head to Tennessee for his cousin Adrianne's wedding. Now that you are caught up with the small stuff on to the reason you check this blog.

I think I may have felt the baby moving inside this week...then again it could have been gas. I know your thinking how gross, but if you've ever been pregnant you know what I'm talking about. Don't even get me started on heartburn! It's like a leach. It sucks every bit of life out of you and is uncomfortable as hell. I guess I should have gotten some stock in Pepcid instead of putting money away for "BABY GAY" about that Ted!!!

This week the baby is the size of an apple and about 4 inches long. His/her lungs are beginning to develop and its legs are growing longer than its arms. Although the eyelids are still shut, the baby can sense light. The baby sucks its thumb and when I lay down Jamie can feel my uterus. I want him to be a part of the process as much as he can, so little things like placing his hands on my stomach and feeling my uterus and skin stretching puts a smile on his face, which puts a smile on mine.

We think that Cooper is starting to realize that there is a new family member on the way because he is slowly becoming my shadow.

Well, that's it for this week. I go back to the doctor on Monday for my 16 week checkup. Check in on Monday to see how it went.
