How far along? 16 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: last time I was at the doctor I had gained 4 lbs... I am only weighting at the doctor because I dont want to think about it too much... but from what I read, I am supposed to start gaining a pound a week.... Next doctors appointment is next Monday, so we will see.
How much does Baby weigh?: supposeably 3oz
Maternity clothes? I am wearing maternity pants all the time now... some regular shirts still fit.. most maternity shirts look too giant on.
Stretch marks? none... i thought I had one last week and I kind of freaked out... but it was really just a mark from having my book resting on my lap! ha!
Sleep: I am trying to get used to get used to only sleeping on my sides (I am a stomach sleeper)... I wake up in the middle of the night though and my hips hurt... ugg.
Best moment this week: Its not baby related... but seeing my Grandma! I am glad she made it home!
Movement: nothing... but it could be anyday now that I start to feel him/her
Food cravings: chocolate chocolate chip muffins and Jimmy Johns
Gender: I think its a boy! ... but 5 more weeks until we know for sure
Labor Signs: Most definitely not!
Belly Button in or out? Still in.. it has a while...
What I miss: cold beer
What I am looking forward to: Swimming!!! I can't wait to go swimming!! Hopefully within the next few weeks we can!

I look to be growing exponentially...... but if I were a math problem, I would be a Limit because I will stop when I reach week 40! hehe. I am a bit of a dork huh?
Time is just flying by lately! I can't believe we are near the end of May (Brians bday Tuesday!) and we will be finding out what we are having in 5 weeks!! Crazy huh!?!?!
The kittens have bitten thru the powercord of the laptop and we have been unable to turn it on! Brian is supposed to buy a new cord today... so hopefully I can fight Brian for some computer time and update. I have some pictures to put up... I have definitely been growing! Stay tuned to see!!!

I found some super cute maternity jeans on clearnance that 1. fit, and 2. I actually like. I of course had to buy them...
When checking out, I could not find my kohl's card at all! If you dont have it with you, they will let you type in your SSN and still use it... well I could not remember my SSN for the life of me! I knew there was a 4, and a 9, and a 6 ... but I couldnt remember any more!!
I eventually just paid another way... I dont know what came over me! I think this baby is really beginning to suck my brain from me!
Hopefully I dont have any problems like this when I take my actuarial exam Monday!!!! eeks!!

A few weeks ago my bed time was 8:30. No matter how hard I fought it, I always fell asleep!
The past few nights I have been pushing 9:00!!!
Last night I even made it to 9:30!!!! I wasnt even tired when 8:30, 8:45, and 9:00 rolled around!
Today I am feeling much more energized too! I am not constantly yawning and wishing to put my head down.
Yeah for 2nd Trimester!!

This is EXACTLY how I have been feeling in the last week!!!!
I feel like I have been continually crying. The slightest reason to be sad sets me off.... I end up bawling with tears streaming down my face. I admit, I have always been a cryer... it feels good to cry sometimes... but this is getting ridiculous.
I have cried multiple times a day for the last few days... if you will be seeing me or talk to me in the next few days be prepared for me to get teary eyed and shed a few tears during normal conversation. I just cannot help it! Its like something just comes over me!
Not only is my crying out of control lately... I also feel like my stress level is at a new high. But I wont go into the many reasons I am stressed out to the max right now.... I want to try and not to think about it all... or I will begin to cry... again.
On a happier note.... today was our second doctors visit. Our appointment was at 11:20... we did not get into the exam room until 11:50 and it was 12:05 before the nurse came in! This made Brian and I both VERY irritable... but once she came in and starting talking about the baby... it was all quickly forgotten. Not to much occured... Basically told me my blood work looked great, my blood pressure is back to 120 over 80, (... I am currently crying and telling Brian to leave me alone.... I am telling you I am moody!) and then we got to listen to the hear beat! It took her a few minutes to find it... which was scary! ... We definitely have an active little one! She said the baby was jumping all over the place and she couldn't keep track of him long enough to get more than 2-3 beats. We got to hear the heart beat once for about 5 seconds before she lost it again... It wasn't long enough for her to count, for sure but she said it was in the 160s. Although I can't feel any movement, we could definitely hear it. Before the nurse even found the heart beat she just started laughing and said "there was a kick!" Every now and then you would hear a big thud. Our little one was having fun! One of the thuds was super loud and it made me crack up laughing! I can't wait till I can feel the kicks!!
Brian and I also made a visit to Babies R Us this weekend. I wanted to look at the cribs and get an idea on the prices... I think I definitely want to go with a white crib and just a changing table/dresser. I can't wait to start on the room! Our plan is to have the room completly cleaned our by mid June so we can begin on painting and decorating by July once we know the gender (June 29th!!!)
