How far along: 16 weeks! Holy cow in a month we're half way there!
Total weight gain: Up 2 lbs. I blame copious amounts of cookies... but it may also have something to do with gestating a human.
Maternity clothes: Ordered some work pants from swap.com, they look brand spankin new, and $6 for JCrew and Gap maturnity... I'm in.
Stretch Marks: None yet, I have been slathering on the mama mio products like it's my job since the day we found out. I use The Tummy Rub Butter in the morning all over, The Tummy Rub Oil at night along with the Pregnancy Boob Tube. I order it directly from their site, they offer 10% off all orders for life, and free shipping. So far so good and my skin feels amazing.
Sleep: Crazy dreams, from friends telling me they've decided to have 7 kids... to covert missions to break out of school assembly gym restrooms with a can of hairspray and a camera cord... WHO KNOWS.
Best moments of this week: My mother in law bringing over a VAT of oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.
Miss anything: Breathing out of my nose. Thank God for the Neti Pot... why did I wait 30 years to try this?
Movement: Yep, can't wait for it to be "big enough" movement for hubs to feel.
Food cravings: oatmeal chocolate chip cookie craving is officially pacified.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope, thank goodness... however I'm still avoiding chicken mostly.
Have you started to show yet: Yes, I can't see my toes if I look straight down. But strangers still act SHOCKED when I tell them I'm pregnant. "You must have just found out!" ... nope, almost half way.
Gender: We find out NEXT FRIDAY! However my girlfriends, friend just had a little boy whom doctors told them would be a little girl. SURPRISE! Their faces in the "first family photo" at the hospital were epic.
Labor signs: No, thankfully.
Belly button in or out: In, My hubs thinks it will pop around the 7 month mark... I'm thinking we should get a bet going.
Wedding rings on or off: On
Happy or moody most of the time: Yes. I was like that pre-pregnancy ... fortunately my hubs is pretty silly and keeps the laughter going.
Looking forward to: finding out if I'm growing a "p" or a "v" inside of me (don't over think that... I have, it's weird)
Favorite thing said to me this week: "You can only tell you're pregnant from the side, straight on it just looks like your *knockers are bigger"
*This was said in the tree of trust, don't say this to a stranger ;)
* I copied this lovely idea from Dream Book Design, just LOVE her blog *
