Pregnancy: Weeks 16-19

Well, I am back again to share the details of weeks 16-19 of my pregnancy. Last week I posted my 12-15 bumpdates which you can see here. Time is continuing to go crazy fast and I feel like I will blink and we will have our baby.

My appointment today! Heartbeat was 159 (LOVE!)
