I saw another blogger who did a weekly update about their pregnancy, and while at first I thought it was a bit much, I'm now starting to change my tune. I have so many friends and family that live far away and I know it's important that they feel involved and updated also.
So, I will do my best to keep everyone updated and not make these posts too long and boring, or borderline TMI (which I have definitely seen as well)
So here we are at 16 weeks. It's taken me awhile to get to the point where I was ready to share our news with others. I've been a bit plagued by fear that something will go wrong, but am finally reaching a more comfortable place on this long journey.
Now when I say comfortable I'm referring to my state of mind, not my waist line or the way my clothes are fitting lately! Daily physical comfort is gradually becoming a thing of the past.
Stats of the Week
Size of baby: About the size of an Avocado
What I miss: Wine (this will probably be true each week) and sushi
Best Moment this week: Hearing the baby's heart beat at the doctor
What baby likes AKA cravings: sweets! Mainly chocolate chip cookies
Movement: none yet!
Sleep: Just fine, except for having get up for the bathroom...or dealing with Bryan's snoring.
Size of mommy: According the the evil scale at the Dr. office I gained 3lbs...BUT I was wearing my very heavy cowboy boots and they don't let you take your shoes off!! SO, I went home and weighed my boots on my scale at home and they weigh a little more than a pound each!!! So we'll just say I've gained about a pound so far.
Looking Forward to: Getting out of the fat stage. I don't really look pregnant, I just look chubby. I don't enjoy it.
Picture: I'm traveling so I'll post one as soon as I have somebody to take one!
