So I have been keeping a secret! We are so excited for Emmy to become a big sister this December! (She is still keeping a poker face on the whole matter.)
I am going to try to do weekly bump date posts…but clearly I make no promises. Ha!
Since it worked well last time, I am going to use my same baby survey. (I can’t tell you how glad I am that I documented my last pregnancy by weeks! So much helpful information!!!)
How far along: 16 weeks
How I found out/told Tommy: Well, things in my stomach just felt weird. I had a sharp stabbing pain a few days before my period was supposed to come (TMI alert – sorry!) and I swear I had round ligament pain. I was supposed to start my period on a Thursday, but didn’t and didn’t really want to do a pregnancy test. So I went on throughout my weekend. Friday night Tommy told me his sister was pregnant (I had a girls’ night that night so I missed the announcement) and I was shocked! I told him I thought I was too and asked if he thought I should do a pregnancy test. He told me “no.” Ha! So I went until Sunday and still nothing had happened, so I decided to take one and it said positive! I wrapped the test up in a plastic baggy (you probably won’t find this idea on pinterest) and had Emmy hand deliver it to him. He was shocked and I thought it was cute (albeit a little gross maybe) that she was involved in the “announcement.” We told our family at a dinner when I was about 6 weeks with a key lime pie (so fitting) with Baby S coming 2014. My mom totally didn’t get it. We had to spell it out for her! It was fun to see everyone surprised!
Total Weight Gain: A couple of pounds? I have not had the same scale, so sometimes it is more or less depending on the week.
Maternity clothes: None so far. I am not looking forward to buying winter ones to wear for just a few months!!
Gender: Coming tomorrow! (If I can get it together!) We did the Maternity21 chromosome test, so we found out when I was about 11 or 12 weeks along. So, so fun to know that early!!! (And so, so thankful baby’s test came back negative!)
Movement: I have felt kicks/flutters here and there. I can feel some at night more prominently, but definitely nothing consistent or strong.
Sleep: It is fine. I wake up at least once a night to go to the restroom. At the very, very beginning I was having trouble sleeping and would be up at all hours of the night worried about how Emmy would handle a new little addition. I have since gotten over this as I don’t hate my parents for giving me a sister J.
Cravings: Salads, salt and vinegar chips, baked French fries, lemony things, sweet things, really anything. Yesterday I HAD to have tortilla soup. I have also HAD to have a Braums vanilla mix with Heath Bar. Similar to my previous pregnancy.
What I am looking forward to: Seeing baby again and working on the nursery!
Best moments: Finding out that the chromosome test was negative. I was so very thankful! Finding out the gender! Seeing the baby move last week at my appointment!
Any guesses as to pink or blue?
