bump update: week 16


Due Date: June 28, 2013

Gender: We know what we're having, but we're not telling "the world" until we're positive that all of our friends and family have been informed by us personally. I'd never forgive myself if those close to us found out through a social media outlet...


Movement: I'm trying so hard to "try" to feel something moving inside me, but nothing to date


Feeling: More excited than ever, now that we know the babies gender!


Food Cravings: I still haven't experienced the "I need to have it and I need to have it NOW" feeling, nor have I sent Bryan out to get me anything on the drop of a dime or thought that I would die if I couldn't eat what I wanted in that moment


Food Aversions: Fortunately I'm able to eat most foods again, although I'm still staying away from juice, vegetable soup and salmon... they all did quite a number on me in the 1st trimester and I still can't stand the thought of them


Clothes: I'm in all regular clothes, although they're definitely fitting more and more snug each day. Some of my jeans I'm having to do the rubber band trick, whereas others button just fine -- depends on the cut and style. I tried on a few maternity shirts and a pair of jeans (but didn't buy them) and loved the way they felt on... I can't wait to wear maternity clothes eventually! Weird, I know :)


Stretch Marks: Thankfully they don't run in my family, but I'm still lathering on cocoa butter to keep nice and moisturized


Sleep: I have been lucky thus far to have had no sleep issues


Symptoms: Vomiting still :(


What I Miss: Sunny side up eggs, salami


Best Moment: There are so many wonderful things that have already happened throughout my pregnancy, but I must say, finding out the gender of Baby G and being able to envision our future with this little peanut is just an amazing, astounding feeling. Bryan and I keep talking about all of the things that we want our child to experience in life, big and small... and everything that we're hoping to experience with them. To put it bluntly, sh!t becomes real when you find out the gender... and it couldn't be more of a thrilling feeling!


Memorable Moment: I won't see my mom much during my pregnancy, maybe 3 more times before the baby comes, so being able to shop for my little one with her was a definite highlight. I had so much energy that day and felt like I was floating around the racks of clothes knowing that we were buying clothes that my baby will one day wear. All I wanted to do was shriek and squeal, but I did my best to keep my cool around my mom by just "oohing and awing", as I think she would have thought I was nuts... I'll save the goofy giddiness for when I shop with Bry, haha! Thanks to my mom, this kid's got a lot of clothes already... and we've only known the gender for a week!

  1. Congrats! Don't worry about feeling the baby move early- once it starts it won't stop! I'm almost 32 weeks and some days I wonder if he ever sleeps with all the kicks and jabs I get around the clock. Maybe this is just me but eventually I grew to hate maternity jeans (Gap) they fall down constantly. My sweet mother bought me a pair of Seven's maternity leggings (from Pea in the Pod and thick like riding pants) and they are AMAZING. Heidi Klum makes a cheaper version for Motherhood Maternity I think. Stay comfortable and have a wonderful time with your husband during all this!

  2. YAY! instead of the rubber band buy the BeBands at Target. They're a lifesaver in the 2nd trimester.

  7. YAY! I love reading these! I first felt our baby right around 16 weeks EARLY in the morning. I was just really still & felt a little tingle! You'll feel him/her soon enough! It will be really fun when B can feel the baby too!
    I laughed when I saw you're missing salami. This is something I didn't expect to miss, but I missed it almost immediately & still do. I didn't even eat it that much before being pregnant! Ha!

  8. Eeeeks I cannot wait to hear if you're having a little girl or boy! You're really the first blogger friend that I have that I've known (through Bloggerland) for a while prior to getting pregnant, so I just feel that much more excited reading about the next part of your journey!!

  9. I just read your posts about how you told your husband. It brought tears to my eyes, I remember exactly the day we found out we were pregnant and that was 3 years ago! I took 7 tests to make sure.... I was that excited! I am so happy for you, this is such a beautiful little blessing. Everyday will bring something new..... even when they are 3 years old! I remember I tried so hard to feel something, I was so eager and then it hit... OMG! She was so extemely active and hiccups..... I will still never forget that feeling. So just be patient... it will happen!

    God Bless you! This is an amazing part of life.

    XOXO
