16 wks

I wasn't showing my face this week! I had been cleaning out stuff all day!
I had crazy hair and no make-up! 

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 16 Weeks
Size of baby: 4 to 5 inches long  and weighs 3 oz
Total Weight Gain/Loss: 2.5lbs
Maternity Clothes: got some jeans and they are so comfy, but I can still wear my other pants
Gender: ????? 4 more weeks!
Movement: Yes! Baby is moving more often!
Sleep: pretty good, get up for the bathroom, and some leg cramps at nights
Symptoms: Crazy dreams, hot flashes.. crazy hot flashes
What I miss: Nothing yet
Cravings: still want pasta all the time
Best Moment this week: we heard the baby's heartbeat at our apt on Thursday! 157 beats per minute
What I am looking forward to: we are headed home on the 2oth for the weekend! Can't wait to see family! And our next apt Sept. 3rd.... we get to find out the gender!!

 I started today to clean out the extra bedrooms. My co-workers and I decided to have yard sale together this next Saturday. So I am going to put the day bed, twin bedding, and desk in the sale. We are getting rid of the futon also but that is sold already! We are putting a regular bed in the back room because I am expecting our family and friends to visit more when we have the baby! I will feel so much better when all of that stuff is gone. The closets were so overwhelming! I now feel like we might have room for the a baby!
My mom and sister are coming the first week in September. I am so happy that they will be here with us when we get to find out the baby's gender! I hope time goes by fast! I am planning on putting Mom and Jen to work when they get here!! Bring your paint clothes ladies!


  1. i can't believe you are 16 wks already! did you find anything out about your hot flashes? are they getting better?!

  2. The doctor said they were normal and just to sit down during them. Drink lots of water also. I guess the higher your HCG the stronger the hot flashes will be. I guess I should feel blessed to have such horrible hot flashes!! LOL

  3. What a cute baby bump!!! You look great!!!!!!
