Okay, probably not the most accurate belly shot, but I thought it was slimming so I'm keeping it. I have the hardest time getting a good angle for these.
How far along: 16 weeks, 3 days
Total weight gain: Thankfully, none. I'm still down a few pounds from pre-preg weight.
Maternity clothes: None. I have some pants ready to go when the day comes. I have graduated to buttoning my jeans using the hair elastic trick, so that's something.
Feeling: Great! I really do forget that I'm pregnant.
Sleep: Great! No changes there either. I do sometimes have trouble falling asleep, but that's more because the dog upstairs won't.stop.barking. I forgot how much I missed apartment living.
Food cravings or aversions: Still anything potato. French fries, baked potatoes, McD's hashbrowns, etc - I'll take them in any form. This week I swung through the Arby's drive-thru for a 4:00 p.m. roast beef sandwich. I saw the sign and couldn't stop the car from swerving in.
Best moment of the week: Hearing the heartbeat at our appointment on Tuesday. 150 beats per minute!
Movement: Nada. Hopefully soon.
Gender: Beats me! What do you think?
Labor Signs: n/a
What I miss: Beer. I'm headed to the Rockies/Cubs game in about 3 minutes and it will be hard to sit where the Coors flows like water.
What I'm nervous about: Not knowing where we'll be living when the baby's born and moving in August when I'm pretty pregnant.
What I am looking forward to: Ordering the baby's dresser this week (mainly because we don't have a dresser and I figure we need this anyway - might as well use it until September) and registering in the next few weeks.
Milestones and new this week: The baby and I have been busy growing his/her toenails this week and getting eyes and ears in the final position. Lima Bean is not so little anymore - he/she is the size of an avacado.
