Week 16

And on time for once! Go me!

How far along? 16Weeks!
Total weight gain/loss: No clue. My rings are falling off now when I wash my hands (quite the opposite problem I thought I'd have during pregnancy) and I haven't been on a scale in over a week, so I have no clue...I'd have to assume I'm still down from my pre-pg-y weight.
Maternity clothes? Maternity pants every day. Regular shirts with the occasional maternity shirt thrown in. Love them all. Especially my slim cut Old Navy jeans. LOVE them.
Sleep: Loving it! Sleeping 8 hours a night and sneaking in a 2-3 hour nap every day (I'll pretend I didn't take a 5 hour nap yesterday)
Best moment this week: Making it through another week. We are getting so close to the half way mark!
Movement: Crazy baby, especially when I sit down after moving around or walking a lot.
Food cravings: Apples. Apple ANYTHING. I went through a dozen BIG appples last week, not to mention all the juice AND applesauce! I love them.
Gender: We know (85-90% sure) but aren't telling yet! Only the grandparents know, but don't ask them. They are sworn to secrecy!
Labor Signs: No, thank you.
Belly Button in or out? In.
What I miss: Dr. Pepper!
What I am looking forward to: My appt next week!
Weekly Wisdom: Do what makes you, your husband and your baby happy. Forget about those who have nothing nice to say.
Milestones: Right now, every day is a milestone. I am more pregnant than I have ever been, so everyday is a huge deal. Our goal is 40 weeks, 37 at the earliest, so every day is one day closer to our goal. (Same as all the other weeks, but still how I feel)

What is Baby up to?

Watch what you say... tiny bones forming in Baby's ears mean the little one can now pick up your voice. Eyebrows, lashes and hair are starting to fill in, and taste buds are forming. And, if you're interested, an ultrasound might be able to determine gender.

And a Belly Pic for those interested!

Just for comparison's sake:

9 Weeks

Just a little bloat!

A rare blog pic of yours truly! Please excuse my crazy hair!

You have a nice blog. A 40-week pregnancy is really just a blip in our whole life time, but the problem with clothing during that time is very painful. Keeping this in mind, two best friends and mother of two children each started We have high quality maternity clothes there and we would like to hear your feedback on our products.
