Here we are at 16 weeks!! Not too much has changed since week 15. I think I hit a little growth spurt between 13 and 15 weeks and it has slowed down a little bit. Most of my pants are pretty hard to button and a lot of the shirts I wear are pretty tight around my belly!! I think it might be time to get some new clothes in the upcoming weeks!!!
The weather is finally changing from summer to fall--one of my favorite times of the year!! Great football weather for us to watch our Boilermakers!!!
We are counting down the days until we go in for our ultrasound!!! It should be pretty exciting!! Check back next week!!!

I am finally starting to "feel" pregnant!!! The past couple of weeks I have just felt like I ate way too many doughnuts and was really fat and bloated!! Now I feel like there is something actually growing inside there!! As hard as I try now, I can't suck in my gut--it's there for the next few months!!! Yay! :)
We went to the Dr. on Monday....and FINALLY got to hear the heartbeat!!! We were able to see it beating in the ultrasound at week 11, but weren't able to hear it. The doppler picked it up real quick this time around! It was very fast and sounded strong!!! He didn't give us the beats per minute, but hopefully he will next time! He said everything looks great and to continue what I've been doing!!
Our next appointment will be November 16th!!! We are scheduled for our appointment at 19 weeks and an ultrasound to check all the measurements of the baby and to find out the sex!!! What a great birthday present that will be for me! :)
Well I hope everyone is enjoying this!! It's crazy to look back just a few weeks ago to see how everything is changing!! 25 more weeks left! :)

What a week we have all had!!!! We have all had a crazy time this week because Jen was put into the hospital with some pregnancy complications. From Tuesday night on, we have been waiting to see what the Doctors were going to do with her and baby Brennan. After they decided to induce her on Wednesday night, things started to get pretty exciting!! I'm am happy to let everyone know that My brother and Jen welcomed their baby boy into this world on October 12 at 1:43 a.m. Brennan Garett Deeter-- 5 lbs 6 oz. and 17 inches long!!! He is one of the most beautiful babies!!
As far as the pregnancy goes, things are still going so well. I have gained about 6 or 7 lbs and my belly is starting to get a little more plump. Our 15 week Dr. appointment is on Monday, so we will see just how well things are progressing.
Clothes are getting extremely tight around my belly, but I'm just not quite ready for maternity clothes. Soon enough though...I'll finally "look" pregnant and people won't wonder why I've gotten a little think around the middle!
Hope you all enjoy the pictures of my beautiful nephew!!!
Check back next week!

A little delay in the entry this week....the camera was MIA. So this is the end of the 13th week!! Things have been going very well. I've put on some weight and most of my pants will hardly button!! Not quite big enough for maternity clothes yet, but my regular ones are just not fitting real well!! It's a chore in the morning to try and find something to wear to work! Too bad they wouldn't let me wear sweatpants and t-shirt because that's all I really feel like wearing now.
Thanks to our generous cousins and sister, baby's room is filled with all kinds of goodies!! So far we have 2 carseats, a stroller, bouncy seat, swing, and thing for the bathtub. We are well on our way already!!! Aunt Haley keeps buying stuff.....she brought over a Purdue receiving blanket and a Purdue pacifier. And baby's "aunt" Maria bought baby hall a Purdue onesie and it's first Harry's t-shirt! Hope the baby likes Purdue!! :) We hope someday it will be a boilermaker just like mom and dad!
We've been busy the past 2 weekends attending the home Purdue football games. Sometimes I feel like a party pooper later at night when everyone's ready to go out afterwards and I just want to go home!!! Lately, they've been long, hot days and by the time 9:00 rolls around I'm ready to go to bed!!
Our next doctor's appointment will be in another week, so it will be exciting to see how much everything has changed since last month!!
Hope you're all enjoying this warm October weather!!
