16 weeks

Emily TuckerComment
  • How far along; 16 weeks, 5 days! Really need to get back on track, sadly not likely this month cause its gonna be crazy busy at work for me. 
  • Weighty Issues: Well its hard to calculate this because I lost weight(2 lbs.) in the 1st trimester due to my morning sickness but have since gained that back plus 2 more lbs so I feel like I'm on track with my weight gain, my bmi has always been normal so they say an average of about 25-35 lbs gained is okay
  • Stretch Marks: Not yet! still rubbin' myself with cocoa butter, my mom didn't get stretch marks so I probably won't yay
  • Sleep: is better this week, thankfully cause I've needed it. I feel bad that I keep passing out early on the hubs tho. 
  • Best Moment this week: Feeling baby's little flutters :) and started working on baby registry 
  • Food Commentary: Tired of the things I loved in 1st trimester: done w/ potstickers and dare I say boneless chicken wings are on the fence. Loving berries, oatmeal, waffles, and the bomb food we had at our church super bowl party yesterday. 
  • Maternity Clothes: Wearing a combo of clothes still, some pre-prego jeans may be on the way out though the hair tie holding them up not cutting it that well. I bought a bunch of random maternity clothes last spring/summer on sale at target and with the nice weather I've been able to add those into the mix. Sale going on at Old Navy on maternity stuff right now, which I really need to check out. 
  • Belly Button In or Out: Still in but stretched out. I've also noticed my belly getting harder!
  • What I miss: goat cheese mmm... was really tempted to get the goat cheese pizza at boudins but didn't feel like asking if the cheese is pasteurized. fyi: pregos can only eat soft cheeses that are pasteurized. 
  • What I'm looking forward to: my next ultrasound 
  • Weekly Wisdom: Just take things in small increments
  • Weekly WTF: really frustrated with the amount of work I have to do at home and not get paid for... i.e. der and maps suck right now
  • Nesting: um sale items are bad, must stop buying things but theres this fear deep down inside that baby won't have anything
  • Milestones: I can not believe I'm four months pregnant and almost half way done
