Bathroom ceiling


Just some questions to make sure I got this right. Ceiling is studded out 16" oc and I'm using 1/2" mr board. I'm double screwing about every 8-12". Is this enough ? This stuff is heavy and I don't want the ceiling coming down on me. There also seems to be a slight amount of flex when you push up in between studs is this normal or do I have something screwed up? Thanks.

The only thing I would have done differently is to run furring strips perpendicular to the rafters, and then install the drywall on that.

I'm curious as to why?
