How far along: 16 Weeks! Halfway through month 4!
Baby’s size: 3.53 oz and 4.57 inches. This week bed bug is represented by a pore belle helene which is a sugary poached pear drizzled with chocolate sauce and served with ice cream….I mean I needed to include that for you un-educated ones. Obviously, in all my travels I’ve learned to pronounce this and make this almost every night. Duh! 😉
Sleep: Sleeping has just been weird this pregnancy. My nightmarish dreams are gone, which is super awesome, but I’m still just having strange insomnia between about 3-6 every morning. Insomnia might not be the right word since I’m not wide awake with my eyes open but I’m more like stuck in that place where your almost asleep but never really get there. It’s hard to describe but not fun and I’m really tired. It’s catching up with me.
Best moment this week: Mason had his birthday party and we had an early ultrasound. Gender reveal said it was a boy but now I’m slightly paranoid since it was a little early and we’ve never done it that early before. Mistakes do happen and the cord was between the legs so now I’m just doubting myself. Pretty sure it’s just an excuse for my mind to stay awake in those early hours thinking about it. I mean I’m almost positive it’s a boy but there’s still part of me that really wants the verification in 2 weeks so I can start planning.
Worst moment this week: Just being tired and feeling like I’m blowing up like a balloon. Whenever I’m tired I don’t make the best eating choices so I think both are catching up with me. I shall get back on track…I shall!!
Movement: A little bit but again nothing really strong or obvious. Honestly, I’m just so busy I probably could feel it more but just don’t since I’m focused on 100 other things. I remember this with Mason. When there is another toddler in the house your mind tends to be focused on them and not your belly. Now add 2 more kids and well you’re lucky if I even remember I am pregnant. Haha!
Cravings: Kind of the same as last week. I haven’t really been craving meal like foods. More like sandwiches or just snack stuff. The energy it would take to make a chicken breast just squashes any cravings. Ugh lack of energy blows!!
Missing Anything: Feeling in shape, sleep, energy…..the usual.
Queasy or sick: No sickness to report although I’ve had some weird weezing the past two days so I’m hoping I’m not developing some kind of chest cold. I mean I feel completely fine but there is definitely something in my lungs. Weird.
Looking forward to: Mason’s bday is officially today so we will hit up our local pizza joint for some eats and games and then go to Toys R Us to let him pick out his new DS game. Apparently I’m not very good at picking out the best games so he can do it himself. I know my weakness. hahaha. Also, looking forward to hopefully getting the boys moved downstairs this weekend….or at least getting that room all primed and ready so that the nursery will be empty and ready for some planning. Yes, I realize I still have 24 weeks but I’ve been here a few times and know just how fast the weeks go. Plus, we have Holiday season rapidly approaching and I really won’t have time for much so my plan is to do little bits here and there and that way it gets done in enough time for me to relax. Besides, no one wants to be putting together dressers and cribs in the 3rd trimester. Ugh no!
How far along: 17 Weeks. Last week of Month 4. Soooo crazy how fast we are flying through.
Baby’s size: 4.94 oz and 5.12 inches. Bed Bug is the size of creme brûlée which is cool considering it’s that dessert that you get to torch at the end. I mean food you can torch and then eat reminds of me of a burnt, caught on fire, marshmallow….my favorite!!
Sleep: Well I’ve been sick the past week so sleep doesn’t really count this week since I wake up and feel like I’m going to cough all my insides out. Since I don’t think that’s pregnancy related and purely sick related we will just say sleep is fine at the moment.
Best moment this week: Mason’s actual bday happened last Wednesday and we got to celebrate that night. Other than that I can’t think of much.
Worst moment this week: Sick, Sick, Sick. Yes I’ve talked about this 100 times so I promise to stop rattling on about how sick I’ve been. I’m just as over it….trust me. Ready to get back to normal feeling and not be hacking like a 90 year old smoker in a nursing home.
Movement: I have felt nothing since I got (dare I say the word again) sick. I’m a little bit worried about it but trying to not read to much into it. The fever I had for a few days worries me the most but I go to the doctor next Tuesday and am hoping for a clean bill of health of little one.
Cravings: Honestly, I haven’t been craving much. Oh wait I take that back. Pumpkin PIE!!! I really, really, really want one. I think it’s just tis the season but I’m dying to have one. I need to go out and just buy one so I can end my late night cravings. I mean YOLO right?
Missing Anything: A good nights sleep is about it at this point.
Queasy or sick: Yes but we already talked about that soooooo we shall move on.
Looking forward to: Doctor’s Anatomy Ultrasound next Tuesday. I’m excited to see the baby again, confirm gender and make sure everything is growing and baby is healthy. He was really healthy at 15 weeks but again with all that’s been going on it will be a relief to hear everything is fine. Hoping I can just relax and enjoy the rest of this final pregnancy after getting all of that out of the way.
Happy Wednesday, friends and sorry I had to double up this week.
