Bumpdate: 16 weeks

(note to self.  Floral patterns make for a hard to see baby bump in pics)

How Far Along: 16 weeks and 3 days (9/20/2012)

Size of Baby M: Avocado! Or i read somewhere, a rubber ducky (which is weird!)
Weight: +1.4 lovely pounds...which brings me to the grand total of 4.3.  Not too shabby i suppose.  I heard that my doc is a weight nazi.  She does NOT like you to gain much at all.....great.  Just what i need, some one telling me I'm fat :)  I hope she doesn't mind me slapping her when she does it, I'll blame the hormones.  For instance, last appointment she told me i should gain 1/2 a pound a week this trimester.  That's wrong.  Everything I've read says 1.  I'm on to her.

Exercise: Meh. I"m still doing it.  Don't feel like I've had any "oh man that was an amazing workout" days....but it's better then nothing.  11 workouts since last Wednesday.  Right on top of it Rose. (What movie?!?! I'll give you a hint)

Symptoms: Bloating is better.  I actually feel pretty darn good!  Boobs still ginormous, and pretty sure they're still growing.  I can NOT afford to buy more bras...besides, what the heck comes after a 32DD? Maybe this one would work...

Cravings: Candy.  Last night i had to run to Dillons for my dad, and came home with peanuts and candy corn.  LOVE LOVE LOVE.  Bad bad bad, but sooooo good :)  and in case you were wondering, no one's got me movie popcorn yet.  I'm so deprived.   Still loving on some fruit.  Apples, cold bananas, and of course grapes.
Hurl-Factor: still nothing.  dang.

Sleep: Not bad.  Up once or twice to pee...but usually sleep pretty good (thanks to the Boppy!)

Stretch Marks:  No new ones. (i have some on my hips from growing i guess).  Been rubbing myself twice daily with body butter!!! It helps that i found a kind that smells AMAZING!!!

Gender: We shall know in SIX days!!!!! I'm sticking with boy. I'd actually be really shocked if it wasn't one. Still can't decide how i want to go about telling people.  maybe i won't.  ha.

(this is obviously not mine, but this is what i'm expecting to see, boy dangly parts.)

Movement: Still nothing.  I'm impatiently waiting. 

Maternity Attire: Haven't worn any yet.  But Old Navy is having a great sale, so i went ahead and ordered up about 6 shirts, 2 dresses, and 3 pairs of leggings.  All for $100.  Didn't we discuss my love for sales last week?

Looking Forward To: We leave this afternoon for my sisters wedding in Boulder.  Super excited for that.  And then I'm excited/scared for the KSU/OU game Saturday.... good thing I'm not further along, I'd probably put myself into early labor watching it.  As far as baby related things....ULTRASOUND!!! 6 days!!! And then I'm shopping.  Oh man am i shopping.  And starting the registry.  I wrote out a list of all the items they say you HAVE to have on your registry.  OVERWHELMED.  Geesh. It's going to take me the whole rest of this pregnancy to finish it. 


  1. You doc doesn't want her patients gaining weight?! What the hell is wrong with this doc! Mine wanted me to have gained AT LEAST 5 lbs by 20 weeks. I mean your growing a baby, you gonna gain weight. don't listen to your doc, you look amazing. I am changing my guess to girl. You are craving sweets and fruit like me. can't wait to hear!!!

  2. She's weird. I think sh worries about people gaining too much, and all the complications that can come with that. If i let it get out of control, i suppose a licensed professional telling me to knock it off would reel me back in :)

  3. How the heck have you got 11 workouts in a week? Are you doing 2 a days? Crazy girl, this isn't football camp. Take it easy home skillet.

    Can't wait to hear what that rubber ducky is (seriously WTF? Rubber ducky?)

    1. I break in up into two! Once in the morning, usually just 45 minutes of cardio (elliptical, bike) and some weights. Then back after work for a few miles on the treadmill or back on the elliptical. It's a lot, but I have the time now and as long as I'm oomfortable I can keep it up! I REALLY like food, so this helps :)

  4. I loving that you are blogging more. I guess you do have something super exciting to talk about!

  5. Old Navy maternity is the best, but shopping for baby clothes there is even more fun! Can't wait for you to find out this week!
