I must say, I totally love pregnancy. I have been really lucky to not be sick throughout this time, and I hope baby continues to develop healthy and perfectly sweet!
How far along: 16
Gender: I really don’t have a guess anymore, we’ll be happy either way. I know people say that but secretly wish for one gender over the other, but really, we don’t care. I think generally boys are less moody and typically more carefree and would be super fun to be around, which is oh so nice, but I think dressing up a little girl and watching her grow into a young woman would be amazing! I say this becuase went to David’s Bridal this week to try on a dress for my sister-in-laws wedding (I’ll be 35 weeks when she gets married, eek!) and while we were there I saw young girls looking for prom dresses with their moms and I thought, oh that’s crazy, that could be me!
Weight gained: 5.8 lbs
Inches gained: About 4.5 around biggest part of belly
Working Out: Yep! During all the days that it was actually warm out, the dogs got 15-30 min walks (longer walks if they were together and shorter for each one if I took them one at a time)
Clothing Choices: My maternity jeans seem to only work for like 2 days before I have to wash them b/c they stretch so much, so that’s annoying. I want some workout tanks, and plan to make some next week, so I don’t feel self-conscious at the gym. I feel like I sometimes look in-between being pregnant and maybe just having a beer belly.
Stretch marks: Only those from soccer years ago on the thighs.
Belly button: Inny
Sleep: Not bad! However, I did notice that my arms and hands easily fall asleep now, which is really irritating!
Best moment this week: Getting some tanks, onsies and a pullover to put words on for myself and some for baby OR going to the store and trying a bunch of different strollers out and realizing our initial online pick is the one we still really want!
Hardest moment this week: My arms falling asleep Saturday night. It made it really hard for me to get a good rest that night b/c I just couldn’t get them to stop falling asleep.
What I’m missing: Honestly, I really want beer or wine.
Movement: There are times I think I feel a flutter, but then I think it’s just my stomach grumbling.
Cravings: I’ve wanted all things sweet! I will try to eat strawberries, pineapple or apple instead of brownies/cookies, but sometimes I just give in! My favorite food right now is apples, pineapple and cheddar cheese, and yes all together and in the same bite!
Queasy or sick: Feeling good!
Looking forward to: I really can’t wait to feel the baby move and I’m looking forward to seeing a bunch of my girlies when I go to my friend’s bachelorette party this upcoming weekend!!!!
