16 weeks

Still chuggin' along. I didn't get the same angle, so I even though I've certainly grown since 14wks, I think this pic makes me look bigger. Well, I guess the camera adds 10 pounds :)

The past couple weeks continue to get better. I think...
The last few days haven't been as good, but I guess it's just hit and miss. I haven't gotten sick since last Wednesday, which was out of nowhere. I do feel nauseous still though. I am eating and have an appetite, but not 100% yet. And once I do eat, I usually feel pretty miserable after. Oh well, at least food is going down and staying down!

Justin went to grocery shopping last night, and I was craving lots of fresh fruits and veggies, so I had him pick up some yummy stuff. Bananas, apples, peaches, tomatoes, cucumbers, pickles, black olives, etc. I REALLY wish I had a personal chef. So much does sound good, but I just don't have the desire to stand in the kitchen and prepare anything. If I stand in the kitchen too long thinking about/looking at/smelling food, it just makes me feel nauseous! I am soooo ready for cooler weather, and hopeful I'll be feeling normal. I really want to be back in the kitchen preparing fresh, hot meals for my family. 

* Barrett and I went to my doctor's appointment last week (15wks), and got to hear the little beans heartbeat. I am pretty sure she said it was 140. At my 11wk appointment it was 163. I need to pull out Barrett's baby book and see what his were. 

* We scheduled our 20wk ultrasound for October 2nd! If baby cooperates, we will find out if it's a BOY or a GIRL! We are all very excited about that. Planning a gender reveal party that evening for our family and friends! I just ordered the invites this weekend, and I can't wait to start planning--hopefully I will have the energy to do so! 

* Barrett has his first soccer game this Saturday. We can't wait to watch our little man in his first team sporting event!

* Tomorrow is LANDRUSH for Bluegrass! Praying I feel well enough to go setup up our camp and then partake in all the Bluegrass festivities for the next week. Well, all but the drinky-drinky party =) Not sure how much tent sleeping I will be doing. At least I can sit in a comfy chair and enjoy the music around camp and on the stages! We are going to dinner tonight Bill & Nicki, our camp family/friends that come from Tennessee every year. They have been here since the 31st of August to lineup for Landrush! 

Here is the first pic we have of baby Mac #2 from the 11wk sonogram.....
