16 week update

How Far Along? 16 weeks and 4 days

Maternity Clothes? No. And I'm not sure if I will ever take the plunge. I found some really cute non-maternity A-line shirts and dresses that do the trick just fine with tights! Woo hoo! All super cheap from H&M. I'm glad that the boho-chic A-line style is in right now! I also tried on my size 2 bridesmaid dress that I'm supposed to wear to my sister's wedding in 3 weeks. When I got it I was going to have to get it taken in around the boobs and waist and shortened but now it fits perfect! But the bump is totally obvious. I thought I would feel self conscious in the dress but I actually like how it accentuates my bump! I'm excited to wear it now and actually look somewhat pregnant!

Stretch Marks? No.

Sleep? Good. Except that my summer break always causes trouble for me and hubs. He still works. I like to stay up late watching tv in bed. Despite the ear plugs and face mask he wears the tv still bugs him and so I can't watch tv. booo.

Best Moment of the Week? This wasn't such a great week actually! Appointment was fine on Monday but it was downhill from there. Wednesday was a HUGE fight with the husband (cried all day...but he came home with roses and we had a great talk and all is fine). Also, Thursday car got its first scratch...a big one. I found it, don't know where the heck it came from but I knew it would make hubby FURIOUS. I really didn't want to rock the boat after our huge fight and make-up on Wednesday. Sucky. We are getting it fixed on Monday.

Movement? Can't wait for this to start!

Food Cravings? Nope.

Gender? I'm still thinking girl. Only 3.5 weeks till we find out!!!

What I miss? Nothing much this week. I guess it kind of sucks being an emotional basketcase! I'm normally not a crier. And I have cried this week and last week! It's so foreign to me!

What I'm looking forward to? Date night tonight, beach on Sunday! And in terms of the big OB appt with the anatomy ultrasound!

Weekly Wisdom: Marriage is hard work but so worth it! Talking things out always makes things awesome again!

Milestones: My tummy is officially pregnant looking and losing the "just fat" look!

Emotions: Up and down! Up and down!

I'm heading out to the mall to do the dreaded first bathing suit shop as a pregnant lady! I need a suit for Sunday! Could be scary! Wish me luck!



  1. So glad to hear everything is progressing smoothly! Have fun shopping for a bathing suit. I always thought preggos in swim suits was super cute.
    Sorry about your car, that stinks, but glad you and hubby are on good terms again :)

  2. Awesome about the bridesmaid dress! How excited to show off your bump! I have the "fat feeling" right now - I know it's just bloat but I tried to suck in and my tummy didn't do much moving. haha!

    Have a great weekend!!

  3. That's fantastic about the bridesmaid dress! Good luck with the bathing suit. :)

  4. Thank you so much for all your thought and prayers the past 24 hours, I really appreciate it!

    I think it's baby bump picture time!!! Good luck with the suit shoping!

  5. That's great about the bridesmaid dress! And I've been looking for a bathing suit too with not much luck. :(
