Bump Day -- 16 Weeks

How far along? 16 weeks....holy crap that's 4 months! Time's a-flyin' now!

Total weight gain/loss: Up 3 pounds this week. Yikes! Looks like all that snacking is catching up to me! Still down 2 pounds overall.

Maternity Clothes? Still just jeans..and to be honest, they're kinda big, but I wear them cause it makes me feel more pregnant. I also bit the bullet and ordered a ton from the Old Navy sale. As expected about half worked...surprisingly the capri's and shorts did. Most of the tops and both dresses were WAY to big and had no shape....I've learned with my body, a defined waist below the boobs is a must!

Sleep: Still waiting on this so called 2nd tri energy. Monday I fell asleep on the couch at 8:30. We did have a busy week though and friends in town over the I think was just exhausted.

Best moment this week: Laying in bed and feeling a few pokes!! I just wish the hubby could feel too....soon enough I suppose!

Movement: Yep! (see above) I feel the flutters at least once a day now, most notably after eating something sugary...nothing like giving the baby a sugar high!

Food cravings: Nothing new. Still digging the chips and ranch dressing. Also picked up a bag of reeses's peanut butter hearts half price after Vday....there's only one left. Guess my sweet tooth is finding it's way wonder I packed on 3 pounds this week!

Gender: For the first time this whole pregnancy my mother's intuition has taken a 180 and I was totally feeling girl! Guess we will find out for sure next month! Feel free to take a guess in the sidebar poll.

Labor Signs: Nada.

Belly Button in or out? Still in....for awhile.

What I miss: Having the energy to stay awake past 9.

What I'm looking forward to: Still waiting to pop. I'm tired of just looking fatter...bring on the bump!!

Weekly Wisdom: Eating crappy foods really just makes you feel like crap. Apparently this eating healthy thing isn't just a crock of bull!

Milestones: Picked up the baby furniture! Got it all unwrapped and safely stowed away in the beer warehouse. Can't wait to have a nursery to set it all up in!! Guess I better stop dragging my feet with this whole house hunting business!

I feel you on the house hunting business!

What makes you think it's a girl now?? That's so amazing to me!

Your bump is looking super cute!!

how exciting! I remember being pregnant and trying me hardest to stay awake after 9 but it was just impossible! My husband had a hard time understanding why I'd be grumpy if he wanted to go over to friends houses & stay there all night.... men should try being pregnant, just once! :) Good luck with the house hunting!

I cannot believe you are 4 months along already! You look great!PS: I think I need to get myself some of those Reese Hearts...I guess now at this point it is probably Reese Eggs on the shelf, but that will work! :)

You don't look fat! You look gorgeous!

That's so exciting that you're getting pokes now. I probably felt them for two months before Joe got to feel anything. Enjoy the little pokes while they last. Just a few minutes ago a got a full on jab to the kidney...hurt like hell.

I LIVED in Old Navy maternity tanks when I was preggers!

Jules said...

Glad you got some goodies from the Old Navy sale, but bummer that some of it didn’t work out. At least you’ll have shorts and capris when it gets hot out. I bet the Mr. can’t wait to feel the baby move. I’m calling for a boy, but we will see. The suspense of all you pregnant bloggers is killing me!

Crazy Shenanigans said...

Glad it's still going great!

Lis said...

You have to come post at the baby cove! I was so excited when I read your comment - that's exciting!! :)

Good luck on the house hunting!! I can't wait to hear about what you find!!

I'm totally going to go with you're having a girl - I don't know why - I feel like my intuition isn't all that great but I just feel girl when I read your posts!! :)

I hope you and your little sweet pea have a wonderful week!!! xoxo
