week 16

How far along: 16 weeks

Total weight gain/loss:
7 pounds gained

Maternity clothes: Pants are now a must, and I'm looking forward to fitting into some of the cute maternity shirts I have. Today I'm planning to thrift some pants and make them into shorts.

Stretch marks: None yet.

Sleep: So far so good. Still hoping my body will learn to wake up mid-night for a bathroom break.

Best moment this week: Seeing our baby girl and getting ultrasound pictures. Looking at baby girl clothes for the first time (I had a perma-smile, people in the store probably thought I was a weirdo).

Worst moment this week:  Being a bit irritable one night (sorry honey) and being too hot at a work event outside (long sleeves, long pants, 2:00 pm, no shade). Also not knowing what in the world we'll name this girlie.

Food cravings: None really, but the fast food on commercials always looks excellent. And I've been devouring watermelon nearly everyday.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope! I have been so lucky not to be sick, really at all.

Labor Signs: None.

Innie or Outie: 
Still really in.

Wedding rings on or off:  On, swelling hasn't been to bad yet, but I'm mostly inside at work anyway.

Happy or Moody most of the time: Mostly happy, unless I'm tired or hungry, but that's without pregnancy too.

Looking forward to: Having a baby girl. I would have loved a boy too, but I'm happy to not have to worry about circumcisions just yet. I'm so excited for all the things that come along with a girl. I know they can be drama queens, and I was bit of an independent-bossypants as a kid (and maybe still am), but I'm still excited. I'm also looking forward to my 16-week appointment on Friday. I really love my midwife.

We're worried about having a bossypants too. (Probably because we both are.) Although I am really looking forward to seeing her telling the dog what to do. Since that's all she'll have to boss around for a few years.
