16 Weeks

Well, I'm back with another update....definitely not as quickly as I would have liked to be back. Guys, I don't know what it is, but I seriously can't find the motivation to do anything right now. I try, really I do...sigh.

I have had some fun things going on lately. Probably the most entertaining has been my lack of control over my emotions. But I've gone from weepy, sad preggo lady to annoyed, angry preggo lady. And even when I know I'm being insane, I just really can't control it. Case in point: yesterday Arsen was watching some football game, and one of the teams had on some type of "throwback" uniform. It was seriously the dumbest looking thing I've ever seen, and I couldn't let it go. He actually ended up getting annoyed with me because of my extreme anger at their stupidity.

Later on, we were watching the American Music Awards, or whatever was on last night, and I literally was disgusted by everything going on. The performances, the outfits...I just couldn't take it. Justin Beiber's clothing choices really infuriated me for some reason...have you seen the ridiculous pants he wears now? Where they're skinny in the leg and super long in the crotch? I mean, come on.

And with those stories of my insanity, let's get to the weekly update...

 Wowza! Am I right?

Due Date
May 1, 2013

This Week Baby A....
Is about the size of an avocado (my favorite). His (or her!) legs are more developed,  head is more erect, and he's even growing toenails :)

Started getting some awesome new hip pain...so much so that I was limping around for days. My mom said I was waddling like I'm 9 months pregnant. Luckily, I had a chiropractor appointment last week, and I plan on going on a regular basis from here on out, so hopefully that we'll get me fixed up :)
Weight Gain
4 pounds
Gender (prediction)
Still have no idea...my cousin found out last week she is having a girl (due April 4!), and I thought somehow that would give me intuition on little Baby A, but it didn't give me a feeling one way or the other...except excitement about her little girl!

Food Cravings/Aversions
This week I've been back on the blah, nothing sounds good kick. I did make some lemon bars this weekend and I definitely enjoyed those. This sweets thing is killing me!

I thought I felt something on Saturday, but I think it was a false alarm...

OMG, with the hip pain sleep has been not wonderful. I toss and turn most of the night, then wake up about 4:30 to pee (every night), and then don't ever really fall back asleep for more than a few minutes here and there. Hopefully this is temporary?

What I Miss
Jeans. I now feel like my jeans are cutting off my circulation, and to be honest I'm not a big fan of the belly band thing that allows you to unbutton your pants...it's such a hassle. So I've worn nothing but leggings for about a week. And I'm sure that will be the case for a bit. My maternity jeans are still a bit baggy through the hips, so leggings it is :)
Daddy's Thoughts
Still just ready for baby to be here...most impatient man in the world.
Fun Moments
I officially "popped" this week. Getting dressed has been a challenge. I finally just had to let the bump show and realize that hiding it might not be an option from here on out. When my mom showed up last week she said she was definitely not expecting me to look so pregnant. So I guess it's official! We have a bump!

Looking Forward To
December 6th! I cannot WAIT to find out if Baby A is a boy or girl!


  1. I found some maternity skinny jeans from old navy that worked pretty good so far, I'm not a fan of that belly band either! Whoever thought it was gods gift to early pregnancy was wrong! I've been super emotional too, it's so annoying haha.

  2. the bumble bee outfits makes me annoyed too!! Hope your hip pain gets better

  3. You look GREAT! :-) OMG, I'm so excited for you to find out what you're having! Eeeeeeee!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment...each and every one makes my day just a little bit brighter!
