Bumpdate-- 16 Weeks

Hi people! Sorry for slacking this's actually my last day of being 16 weeks pregnant! Holy macaroni-- I'm 4 months pregnant.

This week we got some fun things accomplished:

:: We have finally figured out what classes we want to take at our hospital and outside the hospital. Because of my husband's wacky schedule I think I'll have to go to some alone or try to drag a friend/Dad/in-law. The hospital offered tons of classes but because of his schedule, we could only do a few. Oh well.

:: After reading lots of reviews we finally figured out what stroller/car seat we are going to get! We liked the Peg-Perego Primo Viaggio carseat and the City Mini Jogger. We knew we wanted a jogger since we're always outside walking with the dogs and this one had great reviews. My husband is so good-- when we were at the zoo he was able to spot "our" stroller!

:: My MIL is officially coming for our anatomy scan and we're so excited!

:: We went to Ikea and after spending $120 on random crap we managed to browse at the kid stuff. Anyone have any experience with their baby products? I really want a simple crib and I love how antique-y they are at Ikea!

$3 each! Had to snag these. 

I have a thing for giraffes (okay, animals in general) and I am obsessed with these. Are they too girly though? I think the black frames "man" them up a bit but for $1 I couldn't resist! 

How far along? 16W6D

Maternity clothes? My Gap maternity leggings came in and they are so comfy! Go get some. Who cares if you don't have a bun in the oven, just get some-- you won't be disappointed! 

Stretch marks? No. My dad confirmed that my mom did not get any stretch marks so keeping my fingers crossed!

Sleep: Sleeping better than I was.

Best moment this week: 
Finalizing our moving plans (will post about it soon)!

My husband sent me this picture when I was out (probably at Target buying crap or getting a donut somewhere) and said "My whole world! My job and my family". He is a sweetie. :-) 

Well when I got home the house was trashed, but I'll work on him. ;)

Miss Anything? Unlimited Diet Coke, LUNCH MEAT, hot dogs, and having a bikini body.

Movement: A little, I think. Some days more than others. 

Food cravings: Not really craving anything besides watermelon, fruity drinks, and a turkey sub. Specifically a 6 inch white, turkey, pepper jack cheese, lettuce, tomato, salt and pepper, all toasted with Sun Chips (the blue kind) and a huge Diet Coke. Ahem. That might be the meal I request after Baby B arrives! :)

I went through a Chipotle thing but it has passed. We were going once a week!

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nachos! Went out to dinner and couldn't even look at them. Still popcorn and cinnamon rolls. Made some for my husband and wasn't even tempted to have one. The oven being on still makes me sick so I've been doing a lot of stove top cooking and grilling. 

Gender: I still think boy, but I did have a dream we had a baby girl via C-section! Ahhh! Before I used to say I would be shocked if they say girl, but now I think a girl is a possibility! My husband wants a boy but I'll be thrilled either way. 

Labor Signs: No.

Symptoms: Major dizziness if I sit too long on the computer/TV and when getting up, and headaches 24/7. 

Belly Button in or out? In, but I think it's making it's way out! 

Wedding rings on or off? On.

Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy and excited! 

Looking forward to: Anatomy scan on May 22nd, moving, and getting Baby B little goodies.


  1. I love those prints! Not too girly!

    You husband is so sweet!

  2. Oh, and we used the City Mini at Disney World and loved it!

    1. This makes me so happy! Glad you have a good report on it. :)
