16 weeks | Baby Sweets

Wednesday, October 31, 2012

Updates: 1). I accidentally cleared my card to shoot a session last week, before I uploaded my 15w picture. I'm really frustrated with myself and am not sure whether I should continue taking the nice picture or not, as it's a lot of work trying to get it set up at work . . . because we don't have a nice neutral colored blank wall at home. 2). I haven't been stressing too much about coming up with a nickname for Baby #3, but at night, just before falling asleep, I find myself referring to it as Baby Sweet or Baby Sweets, so that's what we'll go with!

How far along: 16 weeks. [16 with Ezra16 with Isaac]

How big is baby: An avocado at roughly 4.6 inches. Tiny bones are forming in my sweet baby's ears, which means the little one might be able to hear me. Eyebrows, lashes and hair are starting to fill in, and taste buds are forming. 

Weight gain/loss: I picked up a pound this last week, so I'm doing good! A steady one pound weight gain from here on out would be perfectly fine to me.

Stretch marks: After two pregnancies, I somehow still don't have any. 

Sleep: My neck and shoulders have been bothering me with all of the shooting and computer time lately. It's been difficult to get comfortable. Still.

Diet/Cravings/Aversions: Not too much to report. I'm still noshing on the paleo diet and made a fantastic bean less chili last week, that I then also served over my eggs in the morning! Again, and I love it. Unfortunately, I did indulge in some Wendy's over the weekend and it was awful. I love Wendy's, especially pregnant, so it was a complete let down. We made spaghetti squash and served it spaghetti style with turkey meatballs and it was fabulous!

Movement: Almost daily flutters, but still nothing certain or more frequent.

What I'm worrying about: How the boys are going to do walking down the aisle for Levi and Bethany's wedding. I'm really hoping that Isaac follows Carter's lead, as he's 5 years old, and that Ezra is coerced as well! 

Annnd boo, I just found out that radiology somehow lost my appt on November 26th. Thankfully we're still able to get in that same day, but instead of 8:00am, we now have to drive a 1/2 hour to Stillwater by 7:15am . . . and figure out what to do with the boys in the meantime. Yikes.

What I'm loving: Being pregnant. Feeling blessed. And, that I can see the light at the end of busy season! YAY!

Symptoms: After virtually no change, my boobs seem to have caught on that I'm pregnant and are a little more tender . . . and perky! I'm just putting this out there, but once I'm done having kids and hopefully ever in a place where I have frivolous money to spend, I'd love for the girls to get some work done. It's so defeating to be in my 20's [at least for one more year!] and have a pancake chest.

What I'm looking forward to: Tony's cousin, who we have closely been pregnant with [no, but really, our children are within 1-3 months of each other] just found out that they're having a boy, after three girls. You guys, the anticipation of finding out the sex on November 26th, is pretty much something I think about every hour. It doesn't help that I picked out our outfits for the reveal and that makes it seem all the more close! Still a month to go, but filled with good things, like Bethany and Levi's wedding and Thanksgiving!

Best moment of the week: This past weekend was busy, but I had small moments of just loving on my boys. I absolutely treasure this picture. We were just sitting on the floor of the kitchen and it speaks so much to my heart!
Love these sweet boys!

I guess it's just good to document the growth... some how and iphone pics are just fine!

You look great!

The only thing I took away from this was the boob job comment. Because I so desperately want one - not due to pancake-ness, I've always just been on the smaller end. For some reason, your sentiment made me feel less guilty ;) Ha!

You look gorge in green, btw :)

My boobs are flatter than they've ever been... I can't even fill up a C cup anymore which is UNHEARD of for me.

You look gorgeous, as always!! Still can't wait to hear about this big reveal... but you're totally going to keep us in the dark until then, aren't you?! ;)

Maybe Baby Sweets is a Baby Girl ...

My Mom always called my Sister and I "Sweets" growing up and I have heard of a few other Mommas to girls who call their little ones "Sweets" ...

I'm on Team Pink for you!! :-)

baby sweet, sweet baby---love it!

I've always talked about a boob job 'someday'---but actually have considered it less as I've aged. I was ALL about it right after college though. Now I just don't care that much anymore, I suppose:) Maybe when the A-cup pancakes return...

How exciting for you guys (Baby Sweets:-) I loved your Caribou idea (from the drive through difference). I may just have to plan a MN bloggers meet-up...it could be a good time! Thanks for stopping by!
