How is it Saturday already? I swear I was just sitting down and writing this last week. This week flew by and I have a feeling next week will fly by too. The week is already panning to be a busy one so I’m crossing my fingers I won’t drown. For the most part I’ve been trying to keep it stylish in my bump pictures but today I just wasn’t feeling it. I call this my casual outfit ; ) . Don’t get me wrong I am comfortable and I think I look good…it’s just nothing fancy.
How Pregnant Am I:
16 weeks 2 days
How Big is Baby:
Baby is the size of an eclair. When I first saw this picture I thought it was a donut which would’ve been really coincidental because I got donuts this morning.
I am using this adorable article I found from Fit Pregnancy and the weeks to come are even cuter than this eclair. Baby weighs about 4 oz and is 4.5 inches long. His or hers ears are on the side of their head and can hear all the noises we can.
I still haven’t weighed myself…I have eaten a ton of girl scout cookies and donuts in the last week so I can’t be too surprised on Monday.
My front side feels heavier. I really started to notice it yesterday. Rylee and I had to walk pretty far in a parking lot and carrying her and the diaper bag left me feeling pretty uncomfortable. I just read that babies heart is working hard pumping 25 quarts of blood a day and there’s already a cup of amniotic fluid.
I am feeling really good about my workouts this week considering last week was pretty scarce. Like I said above I am starting to feel the bump/the weight of the bump. Running overall still feels good. By this time last pregnancy I was struggling to run. Since I am still going strong I am looking into purchasing a support belt for the next couple of weeks. Does anyone have a good one they have tried?!
What I’ve Been Eating:
For the most part I have been keeping it clean. We had family in town visiting so I did eat out a little bit more than usual. I also caved eating an abundance of girl scout cookies at our St Paddy’s dinner. Plus I ate an entire cinnamon roll this morning from the donut shop.
It’s here! I was just texting my sister-in-law last night that I hadn’t and I was feeling discouraged then when I was putting Rylee to sleep it started and hasn’t stopped since. I can’t wait to see what baby likes and doesn’t like. Or what makes them sleep or keeps them awake.
I have had some funky dreams. Last night I had a dream that I delivered a “tiny baby” like it was the size of a doll and it was totally normal. I have found myself waking up whenever I roll over which sucks. I also am now in the get up and pee once or twice a night stage. I hate getting up in the middle of the night. Secretly though I am kind of thankful for it because its practice for whats to come.
I have been cranky and have had short fuses this week. Things that I probably should’ve not gotten worked up over I did. You can’t change anyone and you can’t please everyone. This was one of those weeks I did not let that apply to life. Or at least in my head. I let negative energy cloud my positive.
Buying for Baby:
I almost, almost, almost bought this adorable outfit from Old Navy when I was there the other day.
I am really trying to not buy a single item until we know the gender but isn’t this outfit so cute?! Whenever I am at a store and look at baby clothes I cannot get over the boys clothes. I want to buy all of them! I am still convinced it’s a boy and cannot wait to buy all. the. bowties.
I always look forward to my doctors appointments. It’s nice to check in and listen to the heartbeat. I got our insurance stuff figured out so that is a highlight. My mom, MMR, Rylee and I are heading up to get the last load of stuff and clean. Then I will say bye bye to Moscow for good. I am feeling really sad about it. Hopefully I don’t embarrass myself and cry in front of everyone. I can’t help the #hormones. BUT in my defense it is the place MMR and I moved away to. Neither of us had ever lived more than 15 miles from our parents/friends. PLUS Rylee was born there!
Highlight of the Week:
I am bummed the leggings I ordered last week were a bust. These Old Navy ones were on sale but I am not in love so they are going back.
On a positive note I got to visit with my Uncle and we had two beautiful days where we spent lots of time outside and drank delicious watermelon slushies from Sonic.
