16 weeks

This was, thankfully, a pretty uneventful week especially compared to last weekend. Seth and I have started deep cleaning and reorganizing our room to prepare for Baby. At first we were thinking we'd just keep Baby in our room until we move, but I think we're going to check with my FIL to see if we can use one of the guest bedrooms as a nursery. I can't imagine he will give a shit, so we'll be sorting through that room next. I'm trying to get a bunch of stuff done now before I start working.

We also had my cousin, her H, and their five month old baby visit this week. I was so impressed and relieved to see how well Binks and Bear did with the baby. Binks was more interested in him than Bear was, but they were both really, really good. I have to share some pictures.

How far along: 16 weeks! Baby is the size of an avocado. He/she should be able to start hearing me soon. 

Physical symptoms: Other than some pretty intense stretching and endo-like pain the past few days, I feel pretty normal. It's kind of freaking me out.       

Total Weight Gain/Loss:  +4 pounds! I was so surprised when I stepped on the scale this morning. I was getting a little worried since I don't feel like I'm growing, but I think 4 pounds is okay. 

Maternity clothes: I bought some jeans and leggings on sale this weekend, but they won't fit me for a few weeks. Also, it's too fucking hot for pants right now. I can't wait for "fall".

Stretch marks: None that I've noticed.

Sleep: Still sleeping pretty well!

Best moment of the week: Hmm...I guess seeing my pups get along with a baby. Also, I love seeing Seth doing things to get ready for his/her arrival.

Movement: Nothing yet :(

Food cravings: Coke and Dr. Pepper

Sex: Not sure yet.

Labor signs: None.

Belly button: The same.

What I miss: Beer

What I am looking forward to: 15 sleeps until the anatomy scan! I'm not too stressed about the Integrated Screen this week. If we get a high-risk result for Down Syndrome, so be it. If we get a high-risk result for something else, we'll probably get a better idea of what's going on at the a/s the following week anyway.

Milestones: I never know what to put here. I'm still pregnant? Baby had a skeleton last weekend so I guess he/she is growing nicely?

Bump Watch: We finally got a new mirror so I don't need my heels anymore but I included them one more time for Jaytee! My bump still looks smaller than after Thanksgiving dinner, for example, but my boobs are bigger! (Meaning - I actually have boobs!) 


  1. I'm glad for an uneventful week for you and your little "avocado!" Also the heels are hilarious! You should have them in every picture :)

  2. You look great! I feel like this time is flying by. I'm so glad to hear that the dogs did well with a baby. I think that is something that every dog owner worries about, but those pictures are adorable and they look perfectly calm around the baby. Just wait, soon you'll get cute pictures with baby and dogs!

  3. I love the heels!!! But I extra love them with the pink shorts, prooowww!!!
    I'm so happy to hear you and your avocado are doing well!! And I love the pics of the baby with the pups! So glad to hear everyone was well behaved :) I am so excited for your anatomy scan, I want to know what your avocado is!! <3

  4. Aw! I love that your doggies did well with the baby! I am excited to hear what you are having! :)

  5. 16 weeks?!? Crazy! I love the pics of the pups. They are going to be so good with your LO. You look fantastic (with or without heels).

  6. Yay! You look great Ana! So happy to hear that your dogs did well with the baby--I worry about how our new cat would do! I can't wait to hear about your anatomy scan :-)
