I couldn’t decide if I was going to do bumpdates or not, but I decided I would love to look back and see what I looked like, how I was feeling, what I was craving, etc. Besides, I have blog stalked other people to see what they were up to during the same week. And, really, what else am I here for except to help my fellow readers?
I have been taking pics since week 10…they have gotten progressively “better” in the sense that I now have Tommy taking them and you can see my face. I wouldn’t say this is Tommy’s favorite task, so you can rest assured that this will never be a blog of photos of just me.
I am stealing Lindsey’s bumpdate questionnaire and may add a few more questions. This is going to be a recap up until this point. (Thanks for humoring me.)
How Far Along: 16 weeks
So far I have been very, very lucky to not feel sick or too tired. My sister was the exact same way, so I am very grateful.
Total Weight Gain: I honestly don’t know. Between my 13 week and 15 week appointment, I was up a .5 pound. If I were to guess, I would say 2-3 pounds.
Maternity Clothes: None. I am wondering if I can get away with not buying any and only buying dresses. Ha! I am sure this will be hysterical to look back on in about 16 more weeks :).
Gender: We find out in a few weeks. I have NO clue. My first thought was boy when we saw the ultrasound for the first time. The heart rate has been really fast, so then I thought girl. (The ultrasound tech claims this is a wives tale, which I am sure she is right.) So, I really do not know. Tommy thinks a girl.
Movement: I was in bed yesterday watching TV and all of a sudden my whole stomach moved to the right. I will be honest, it scared the heck out of me. I stood up and then realized that it must have been the baby. Ha! I laid back down and couldn’t feel anything, but could see my entire stomach moving. Such a fun feeling. I could have stared at it all day!
Sleep: I wake up multiple times a night. It is a good night if I can go back to sleep. I haven’t slept well at all since getting pregnant. Even from day one. I guess my body is prepping me for what’s to come!
Cravings: Salads, salads and more salads. There were a few weeks I could have kept Pei Wei in business because I HAD to have their chopped chicken salad. I have also craved sweet potato fries and I am not sure this is a craving or if I just really like them, but I ♥ salt and vinegar chips. I have also been “meh” on veggies (don’t worry, I still eat them), but love to eat fruit.
Other crazy symptoms: My biggest “symptom” this whole pregnancy has been extreme irritability. Like extreme. I am typically very much even-keeled (my mom might beg to differ – she did know me in high school), but I will tell you there will be days when everything irritates me – even the songs on the radio, so I drive in silence. It is actually comical. Then, the next day, I will be back to normal.
I have to tell you, though, Tommy has been so great and understanding with my moods. I probably wouldn’t be nearly as nice if roles were reversed. I am very lucky.
What I am looking forward to: Babywise, I am looking forward to finding out the gender, feeling the baby move, and starting to work on the nursery!
Personally, we have a busy week and have some fun things coming up! We are going to the Thunder game, Tommy turns thirty-two and we are planning our summer vacation to Florida where we got married!
Best Moment this week: Seeing the baby at my ultrasound last week and seeing the baby move (I think – I am just going to go with it)!
So, what do you guys think – pink or blue???
