The First Bump-Date!

I'm so excited to be sharing my first bump-date on the blog! I've been taking weekly photos (well, almost every week) since I was 4 weeks pregnant when we first found out, and the progression has been so cool to see! I look back at my first photos and then where I'm at now and it's already SO different! I can only imagine how I'll feel in another 20 weeks!
How Far Along: 4 months (16 weeks)

Size of Baby: The size of an Avocado

Gender: To Be Determined but OH how I wish I knew already!!! I have 3 other friends due around the same time as me and they already know! (I'm thinking girl though)

Weight Gain: About 6 pounds

Food Cravings: Recently it was pancakes, but in the beginning it was cheese. Like seriously, one day, I could have ran someone over with my car for a grilled cheese! (the same day we made pesto grilled cheese at home haha)

Food Aversions: Thankfully nothing overall. Last week the idea of shrimp grossed me out so I subbed that out of a recipe for chicken and all was well.

Movement: I haven't felt anything yet!

Sleep: Ummm, like all the time! I'm not passing out on the couch as soon as I get home from work like I was the first trimester (especially the first 2 months), but I can definitely pass out around 9-9:30 on the couch and then go up to sleep solidly through the night for 8-9 more hours.

Clothing: I've not worn any maternity pants yet, but that's because my belly band has been helping me get some extra use out of my pants that I already have (hello, unbuttoned pants all day long!) but I just wore my first maternity top this weekend (see above)

Other Pregnancy Symptoms: Some random acne which is annoying.

What I Miss: Up until this past week, the only thing I really missed was turkey sandwiches from a local deli that I love. Then last week when I had a horrible meeting with parents and their lawyer, afterwards I really wanted a glass (or 5) of wine, but that's really the first time I've missed alcohol. That might be harder with the holidays coming up, but totally worth it!

Best Moment: This week it was getting a steal of a deal on our glider/recliner for the baby's room, and getting that room cleared out more, making plans for what we'll do in there.
Looking Forward To: Finding out the gender! I have an appointment today, but I don't think an ultrasound is involved (much to my dismay and attempts at nudging of the doctor), so I'll have to wait a few more weeks to find out. I just really had hoped we'd find out this week so we could do the reveal with our whole family at Thanksgiving since everyone would be together. But alas, we plan, and God laughs!

Can't wait to share more in the coming weeks!

  3. It's so fun to take the progress pictures and look back seeing how far sweet baby has come. Such an exciting time!! I just had an appointment yesterday and she said I don't get to see baby girl until week 36. I asked the doctor if she realized that was 7 weeks away. Haha. I'll keep my fingers crossed they surprise you at your appointment.
