16 week {update}

I have been feeling much better this week.  I am definitely growing, but that is good... right?

It is nice to be nearing the half-way mark.  I have to keep my mind set on little goals, instead of the final date.  When I think of August, it seems like an eternity away, but thinking about the 20 week mark seems like a goal I can reach.  

At my last appointment a few weeks ago the doctor told me I could lay off testing my blood sugars because my numbers had been so good.  This is a huge blessing.  We also got our 20 week ultrasound scheduled and I am totally stoked about getting to see the baby.  

I am napping less often and finally feel like I'm being more productive.  The kids and I have been having a great time hanging out and talking about "Humphrey" (that is what Ella has named the baby).  

A few milestones:

I am feeling the baby move and kick around.
My belly is really growing.
He/she is about the size of a lemon/avocado.
