16 Weeks (or 4 months, whatever you prefer)

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!
