16 Weeks

How far along? 16 weeks
Maternity clothes? None yet, but pretty soon. I’ve started to put away some of my “smaller”
 shirts because they are fitting tighter than what I like. By the end of the night I can’t wait to put on stretchy pants as my pants get really tight by the time I am done with work! A few times I have had to unbutton my pants because they are really tight by the end of the day!
Stretch marks? No
Sleep: Still sleeping pretty good.
Best moment this week: Spending the weekend with CJ enjoying our 4 year anniversary. We spent the weekend up north at our family cabin in Antigo. It was nice and relaxing with just the two of us and our fur baby – Lacey.
Miss anything? Hot tubs! I wanted to go to the Dells for our anniversary but CJ said no because I am not allowed in hot tubs! Don’t want to cook baby!
Movement: I’m thinking so. I felt more flutters than I previously have. Feels like a muscle twitch, but for how often it happens I’m thinking it’s movement and not a muscle twitch.
Food cravings this week: Milk (still). This week I am adding French toast to the cravings list! Can’t seem to get enough French toast this week!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Smell of pizza & all of the bumps in the roads. This winter has been brutal on the roads by us. I seem to notice every bump.
Gender: We will find out on March 14th!!! We did do this ‘just for fun’ test called Intelligender. It basically works like a pregnancy test, but the results are by color. Deep Orange = girl, and Dark Green = boy. The company claims to be about 80% accurate in their results. I’m not going to share the results because we might be doing a gender reveal party and I don’t want any biased opinions of what baby might be!
 Symptoms: ‘night sickness’ came back to visit me for 3 nights this past week. L
This week baby is the size of: an Avacado
Baby’s development this week:  Baby should be about 4 ½ inches and weighs about 3 ½ ounces. It’s heart pumps about 25 quarts throughout it’s body in one whole day! It’s also supposed to be listening to my voice. (Too bad baby’s not listening to me when I tell it that it needs to stop making me sick!)
Belly button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or moody most of the time: I am getting really tired of the cold weather & snow. I’m ready for (at least) 50’s & sunshine!
Looking forward to: Our fur baby turns 4 this week.

Lacey is extremely sweet, loves to snuggle, and has a little bit of sass in her. She gets excited to see anyone and everyone, even if it’s only been 5 minutes since the last time she saw you. She has only been really naughty a few times which I am pretty thankful for. When she was about 5 months she ate a perfect hole through a whole watermelon that I just bought that morning, she destroyed a plant & dragged dirt all over our new carpet, attempted to eat Grandma Torosian’s wedding ring (luckily she spit it out!), escaped our tent in the middle of the night/early morning when we were camping in our yard, and ate ½ of dad’s $100 bill (which we were able to replace with a new one!)  Here’s to our first baby! 

16 Week Pictures! Sorry about the bad pictures it was late at night and I was already in my pjs!
