9 Days and Counting!
Your wish has been granted! You asked for a belly shot, so you got one. On Thursday, I went to the doctor for my 16 week appointment. He told me that everything looked good, and that he was happy how I was progressing! He told me that my weight was right on target (even though it looks like I've gained a ton.) I saw the baby again, and it was so cool! It actually looked like a little baby. I could see the arms, legs, head, body...everything. It was sitting with its little back toward my belly so I could even see its little back bone. It was the neatest thing ever! I have a picture that I will post, but I have to wait to go scan it at my Dad's house. The most exciting part - at my next appointment, we will find out the baby's sex (or in Luke's words an innie or an outie;) My appointment will be May 2nd, so I only have 9 days to wait.
Besides all the baby excitement, not much else is happening. I have been less and less sick each week. Hopefully it will be COMPLETELY gone within the next couple of days. I look forward to telling everyone the big news, so until then...

Our "little ???" is growing so fast! I can hardly wait to hear, you know... if we have an innie or outie - great way to put it, Luke!
We may need a little red wagon to pull you around SDC this summer!
You look FABULOUS!!!!!!!

You look great girl! I'm so glad you updated this. I CANNOT wait to hear innie or outtie. YOU BETTER CALL US AS SOON AS YOU KNOW, well, after you call all of your family-types. THEN us. :) Gotta know if Coop gets dibs if it's a girl. That's my prediction by the way ...

YOU LOOK GOOD! Can't wait to hear the big news! Short or long board shorts?? Either way, I'm sure little 'O will be an awesome wakeboarder.

So happy the morning (all day?) sickness is nearly over. Did you ever try that home remedy of my grandmother's? You look so darn cute, as always. Looking forward to hear if I'm going to have a great-nephew or great-niece. I also like the innie or an outie distinction.

Much love - Anne
