16 weeks.

How far along? 16 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: Still about + 1 overall.
Maternity clothes? Still massively enjoying my recent purchases. Although, I have to say, maternity shorts selection leave much to be desired.

Stretch marks? One more has joined the small cluster on my thighs. But I'm quite sure those were there before the spawn.

Sleep: Continually lame. I can assume it's only going to get lamer. I never sleep through the night, and wake up just about every other hour.

Best moment this week: FEELING MOVEMENT! Woo-hoo!

Movement: Uh, see above.

Food cravings: Chocolate Cake. With vanilla ice cream.

Gender: After my dream? Girl.

Labor Signs: Nooo.

Belly Button in or out? Still innie. Still wider.

What I miss: My shorts. All of them.

What I am looking forward to: My doc's appt this afternoon so I can hear the heartbeat again, hopefully!

Weekly Wisdom: Sigh. Again, hug your loved ones and cherish every moment.

Milestones: M to the O to the V to the E to the M - E - N - T!

This week ended up being a lot more tragic than we ever could have imagined. A good friend of the hubs and I suffered a brain injury on Tuesday evening, and after days of surgeries, prayers and hope, he was eventually taken off life support and passed away around noon on Sunday. He had many MANY friends, and all of us were very sad this weekend, trying to take the whole situation in. I've teared up a few times, but when a coworker sat down, gave her condolences and asked what happened this morning, I just started to cry.

His funeral will more than likely be later this week. I just hope that this is the last of the funerals before this baby is born. I know it's not possible, but I just get worried with all the tragedy and sadness I've been through since being pregnant that it'll somehow affect the baby. Just a worried momma, I guess - I know there's no real possibility...but it's just scary and sad that all this has happened in such a short period of time.

We'll miss you Kelley, but we know our baby will have yet another angel to watch over him/her.

  1. Aw, no worries. Maybe, if anything, the baby will just need some more chocolate during this time.

    (Did I just make your baby sound like a transvestite?)
