16 Weeks & Counting!
I can’t believe that today marks Week 16 for Baby Stern. Time is flying by! I am reminded every day when I wake up, and this belly seems to be growing by the day, of this amazing gift from God that we are preparing to receive. It’s just amazing to me how in a little over 5 months we’ll be holding our little one – the excitement is just overwhelming!
I finally broke down and ordered a chalk board, but ended up finding this cute little chalkboard decal that goes on the wall. It should be arriving early next week and we can finally get down to chalk crafting and fun facts 🙂 Here’s a belly pic that gives you a perspective of what I’m looking down at all day. Well, not all day, but I do like to look at it pretty often.
How far along: 16 weeks
Total weight gain/measurements: 9.5 lbs
Maternity clothes: I did make a visit to Motherhood Maternity when we stopped at the outlets next week and bought a really cute maxi skirt outfit and some black work pants, which were much needed
Stretch marks: None, yet
Sleep: Not so great this week. Have been extremely hot in the middle of the night and also up multiple times to go to the bathroom.
Best moment of this week: Counting down the days until our gender reveal (just 2 weeks!)
Have you told family & friends: Yes!
Miss Anything? Being in wine country last weekend really made me want a glass of wine – the holidays will be nice this year
Movement: not yet
Food cravings: Pickles – yes, it’s an actual craving! Avocados, Bananas, and French fries
Anything that makes you queasy or sick: not really this week
Have you started to show yet: Yes!
Gender prediction: Still no real feeling one way or the other
Labor Signs: No
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!
Looking forward to: Ordering nursery furniture and getting the room painted!
Here’s a few other little things that we’ve purchased for the baby while we were away.
It’s turning into quite a collection in this closet. Wait till be know if we’re having a boy or a girl! We’re gonna be in trouble. 🙂
