Wholly Guacamole, it's been 16 weeks!!!

How far along? 16 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: not sure (don’t have a scale at home) 
Maternity clothes? I wish!  I bought some online from Old Navy on the 17th and they haven’t arrived yet.  But my jeans are now fitting pretty snug and my work pants are definitely getting put into a bin and taken under the house :)
Stretch marks? Nope
Sleep: minor insomnia if I get woken up in the middle of the night.. agh ‘em Ross, but other than that I sleep pretty well with an occasional trip to the potty once or twice.
Best moment this week: Flutters!!! At least that’s what I thought they were because it wasn’t gas.  
Miss Anything? surprisingly, YES!  I miss running!  The ladies at work have started training for a 10K in May and I am so bummed I can’t do it with them.  I am going to go and cheer them on though!
Movement: possible flutters.. Last night were the first I distinguished a difference from regular gas.
Food cravings: not too many.  I did enjoy a delicious burger from In’N’Out though.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope
Have you started to show yet: Yes, according to my sister I look “super preggo”
Gender prediction: hmm.. Ross thought it might be a boy because Skittles would not leave me alone last night (she loves her boys)
Labor Signs: nope, but definitely growing pains!
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy! I did have my first hormonal fit the other morning... oops
Looking forward to: Finding out gender, being able to feel Piglet from the outside (so Ross can feel it too), and buying our first baby items!!!

Happy Wednesday!

Our BIG announcement!

Ross and I are so excited to share the news with everyone!!! Sorry it took so long to get this announcement together but we have been very busy!

I will be posting weekly baby bump pictures along with some fun facts about how I (and Ross) have been doing.  I thought this would be a great way to share this wonderful experience with friends and family who may not get to see us that often.  

How far along? 15 Weeks
Total weight gain: about 5 lbs.
Maternity clothes? not yet, but I have had some given to me and I just bought some!
Stretch marks? not yet... using Palmer’s cocoa butter cream
Sleep: Getting there.  Two crazy dreams, one was baby related. Side sleeping is so hard!  I constantly wake up lying on my back.  Using the body pillow is helping.
Best moment this week: Hearing baby’s heartbeat for the first time!!! What an experience.
Miss Anything? sushi...
Movement: not yet.
Food cravings: lately, salty things and sweets.  But nothing crazy. 
Anything making you queasy or sick: nope
Gender: ...don't know yet
Labor Signs: nope.
Symptoms: nausea is finally gone and bloating is getting a lot better in the evenings. YAY!
Belly Button in or out? in
Wedding rings on or off? on
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy & excited!!!
Looking forward to: growing bump, and anatomy scan in 5 weeks!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week, God bless you all!!!
