The Fruit: 16 weeks

Watch what you say… tiny bones forming in baby’s ears mean the little one can now pick up your voice. Eyebrows, lashes and hair are starting to fill in, and taste buds are forming. And, if you’re interested, an ultrasound might be able to determine gender.

No, we’re not interested, thankyouverymuch. Although, I did dream that an ultrasound tech told us it was a girl. Hmmm..

Thank god we have 4 more months.

Last night, the hubs and I went over a list of baby names I’d come up with over the last few weeks.

Out of 21 girl names, he liked 4.

Out of 11 boy names…he liked none. But he added two that I could agree with.

I always knew this would be a difficult task. I think we both kind of feel like – what’s the rush? And it’s true, we do have plenty of time to decide, but I feel like if we can come up with a couple of names, we could at least address the baby by one or both of those names instead of “it” for the least amount of time as possible.

I’m not going to share them here. :) Yet another secret to keep from you. Muah-ah-AH!

I think we have movement.

I’m about 80% sure I just felt movement, after conferring with some ladies on the 2nd Tri board.

Holy crap. So early! The nurse told me I might feel it earlier since I’m thinner, but whoa.

So, so surreal.

Muscle twitch or kick?!

I just felt something, three times in my lower abdomen.

AHHH. I can’t tell. DAMMIT.

How far along? 15 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: Still about + 1 overall.
Maternity clothes? In addition to the Gap jeans purchased last week, I dropped three hundo on 2 more pairs of jeans and 4 shirts at Macy’s yesterday. Ooops. But not really, because I love them all and they’re all SO COMFY!!

Stretch marks? Not that I am aware of!

Sleep: Last night was MUCH better than the previous night. Being sick AND pregnant poses a sleep issue.

Best moment this week: Hmmm, I guess continuing the registry task, but this time with the hubs. :)

Movement: None. I can’t wait to feel it though!

Food cravings: Sushi & Beer. Again.

Gender: This week I’m thinking boy.

Labor Signs:
Belly Button in or out? Still innie. Still wider.

What I miss: Being able to do anything active without getting a backache.

What I am looking forward to: Feeling movement!

Weekly Wisdom: It’s okay to spend a bunch of money on maternity clothes – you’re basically buying a whole new wardrobe!

Milestones: Going baby item browsing with the hubby.
