4 Months = 112 days or 16 weeks

*p word mentioned

Today is my half birthday! But there is better reasons to celebrate, I am also (as the title states) 4 months/16 weeks today. 37% of your pregnancy has passed, there is 63% left to go.

I am still trying to squeeze into my non-elastic waist band clothes. I have outgrown all my tops. They are either too short and/or can not be buttoned. I really thought that since I was larger, my clothes would last longer than they seem to be.

I received an email today about how little bones are forming in Mini Vann's ears and s/he is now able to hear voices. How cool is that!!

I had a huge mental breakthrough this weekend and I plan on posting about it when i have more time to gather my thoughts and come to terms with some things. But for now - Know All is well and we are trucking along. I am waiting for my Dr's office to call and set up my MFM dr appointment.

Yey for 16 weeks! Boo for elastic waistbands! I hope you find an MFM doctor as great as mine has been! At least, based on what I've read in webworld, the MFM doctors seem more inclined to take your worries seriously.
Happy 1/2 birthday!

See, isn't celebrating your half-birthday the most exciting thing ever?!? :) Ok, maybe I'm stretching a little.

Congrats on the 16 week mark, that's fantastic! Hopefully you can get your appt. scheduled asap so we can find out if it's a boy or girl already! :)

Congratulations on your 4 months!!! At 16 weeks I started outgrowing all my clothes, by 18 weeks I moved full time into maternity clothes... they are so confy!

Happy 1/2 Birthday!! Happy 16 weeks!!

So Mini Vann is forming ear-stuff. Now is the time to start making sure you're the favorite parent. Hahahahaha!!!

When are you supposed to hear from them about the MFM Dr.?

Sorry you had a tough weekend but I am glad all is well now. I think we all need a good emotional breakdown every now and then. It reminds us of where we have been and where we are going.

Het girl...you meant a breakthrough right? I think breakthroughs are easier than breakdowns. But that's just me. Can't wait to hear more. But I just wanted to say I'm glad things are good for you, glad you're in the second trimester, and glad you're always so nice to hear from. Hope to talk to you later,

the infamous UUer,

Oh yeah...does that make you a July 15th birthday? I'm July 13th...that would make us both cancers...that's why I like you so much...we're both some of those cool water sign girls! Actually I don't follow any of that stuff...but they say water signs connect more than other signs. My husband is a water sign..a Scorpio..and my mom and dad are both water signs (pieces and cancer) and have been married for 40 years. Sorry for the astrology lesson...I'll be quiet now.
