16 Weeks

I must admit, I cringed as I posted this picture. I know I'm supposed to be growing, but it seems like that is occurring at turbo speed! Don't be surprised if next week's picture is taken in baggy clothing!

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 16 Weeks
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Not quiet sure...I have avoided the scale these past 2 weeks!
Maternity Clothes: Yes. Pretty much everything I wear right now, especially tops.
Best Moment this week: Finding out the gender of our little one!
Gender: Boy!!!
Movement: None yet (that I can feel at least...)
Food Craving: I've been on a salad kick this week (hopefully that will help with the weight!)
What I miss: Wearing my engagement ring.
Sleep: I'm all off schedule in this department. Lately, I havn't been able to sleep through the night when I'm not working so I get up around 3:30-4 and am exhausted by noon. Thankfully, I can nap well during the day.
What I am looking forward to: Heading to Miami this week for some R&R with my best friend and her kiddos.
Belly Button: Definitely in
Symptoms: I get thirsty a lot and end up drinking a ton of water, which when eating meals makes for a very full stomach.
All together, it's been a wonderful week. As I said, I couldn't be more excited about having a little boy...they love their mommas! Plus, as my mother so kindly pointed out, Jackson probably couldn't handle having two princesses in the house right now!
I've already been looking and planning for the nursery, even though we probably won't actually work on it for another couple months....but I'll keep you posted!
Thanks again for all of the well wishes and encouragement.
