A Very Merry 16 Weeks

Helloooo! I’m late this week, but it’s a good thing. I’ve been having so much fun, I just had to wait til I had time to do a few really epic blog posts. =)

I’m starting with this video, because I’m in love with these sounds, and have been trying to get them on camera. So, Granny, Boompa, Frank, Sandy, Paula Randy– Wanna hear your (great)grandbaby kicking?

@ 0:53, and @ about 1:08-1:12 are some kicks- it basically sounds like feedback (the same sound you hear when I rub the monitor too quickly on my skin) the difference being I’m holding the doppler perfectly still, so the sound had to come from the inside. Stomach gurgling sounds different… I promise. 😉

And the picture this week is a little dramatic as well.

This bump, the real deal, popped out at 15 weeks, 5 days. I know because I woke up feeling great (ie: Not Bloated), and couldn’t suck in that belly for the life of me. Also, baby’s heartbeat was suddenly about 1.5 inches higher on my belly, and I can now hear it from 3 sides, instead of just the front.

How far along? 16 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: +4.8lbs
Maternity clothes? Still walking around with my pants undone, and buttoning up for special occasion. 😉 I’ve put it off so long, I’m down to ONE pair of pant I can wear in public.
Stretch marks? No
Sleep: Sleeping well- the dreams are a little crazy, but if I’m sleeping through the night, I’ll take it.
Best moment this week: Hearing baby kick on the doppler. I wasn’t sure that’s what it was until I you tubed some other videos. Also realizing that kiddo is moving around like crazy in there!
Miss Anything? Still sushi. I had a few sips of a delicious red wine over Christmas dinner, and I missed that for a few days as well. =)
Movement: Nope, can’t feel anything yet, but it’s coming!
Food cravings: None that I can think of. Eating pretty much all the standards I loved before pregnancy
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope! I’m back!!!! =D
Have you started to show yet: Oh good god yes. I love it!
Gender prediction: Still leaning towards boy…
Labor Signs: No
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy! Still very sleepy… but getting better. I went to bed around 10 a few nights this week. Woooo!
Looking forward to: My awesome Nieces and Best Buddy coming up to see me for New Years! It’s going to be so much fun! And yes, probably next week’s entry will be late too. =P

  1. Your blogs are so cute :)! Congrats and I hope u have a wonderful pregnancy! I saw that you said you are running out of pants so I wanted to tell you, if you haven’t tried the BeBands from target you should! I bought a couple maternity jeans and hated them all but I’ve worn the bands the entire pregnancy. Also, the corduroy and jean leggings are amazing cause they are stretchy and don’t have any buttons. Just thought I’d let you know what worked for me :).
