Weeks 17 and 18

I'm sorry for missing last week's post. 

Today starts week 18 of my pregnancy! 

Last week Olive was the weight of a turnip.

And this week she/he is about the length of  bell pepper.

I can now feel the baby move some, and when he/she is twisting around I can tell that he/she is about that big. :) I praise the Lord for that perception, because it is just amazing to be able to tell that.

Who is like unto thee, O Lord, among the gods? who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?
~Exodus 15:10

Hear, O ye kings; give ear, O ye princes; I, even I , will sing unto the Lord; I will sing praise to the Lord God of Isreal.
~Judges 5:3

This week Olive's ears should reach their final position on her/his head, and the myelin coating on their tiny nerves should begin forming. I can't wait for an ultrasound, to be able to see our precious little one; Lord willing it will be soon.


  1. Oh, Katie! The joy that comes from being able to first feel that little love move!

    It always thrills me when a first time mama and daddy are so excited. My prayer is that God will continue to bless all of you!

  2. So sweet! Can't wait for your ultrasound either! Love you! Continuing to pray for your strength and health, baby's too! See you tonight, Lord willing!

  3. Let us know before you get the ultrasound so I can be on top of your post. Sometimes I forget to check and you know I'm waiting to hear!!! Take care of those chest colds. Have you come up with any possible names yet???Love You!!!!!

  4. And in just 22 weeks baby Olive will be here with us! You are almost 1/2 done! We are very thankful for your morning sickness going away! This is the fun part of pregnancy ~ feeling the baby move and kick! Love you both!
