16 weeks!

This week the baby, whom shall now be known as “Lil Captain”, is the size of a large avocado and I can sure tell he has grown a lot this week. I have been having growing pains pretty bad the last week. My wonderful, amazing friend, Jenni, gave me a little shirt that says Captain on it yesterday. Now he can be just like his Daddy. By the way, The Captain absolutely loved it and picked up on it right away. Thank you so much! Check out Jenni’s website, she is the most talented graphic designer and invitation designer out there.

The Captain is the sweetest husband ever! He told me last night that he bought me something after doing some internet searches and it should be arriving in the mail any day now. After some poking and prodding I got it out of him.

A pregnancy pillow! I really wanted one for Christmas but I didn’t get it and he said when he came home the other night and came to give me a kiss in bed I had all the pillows around me and between my knees. I didn’t realize I had been doing that while sleeping but I have been getting uncomfortable at night since I can’t sleep on my back or tummy. I can’t wait until it gets here. I am going to sew a different cover though because the reviews said it wasn’t a high enough thread count.

Best Moment of the week: Most definitely, finding out we are having a son. I always said I didn’t want to find out the sex that I wanted it to be a surprise but actually finding out with our families there was way beyond what I expected. Such a treasured memory that I don’t think any of us will ever forget. I just wish my Dad could have been there.

Epiphany of the week: DO NOT step on the scale if you are not prepared for what you will see. Weight gain: I plead the fifth and blame it all on the holidays. I’ll just say I gained more in the last week than I have all pregnancy, yikes!

Entertaining question/comment of the week: Said by me “I have a penis inside me 24/7”.

Obsessions:  The nursery design and registering. I am not sure when you are supposed to start a registry but I should probably go ahead and drag The Captain to BRU because I don’t think he has ever stepped foot in there. It might take a few trips to get it finalized, I have a feeling he will be very overwhelmed.

What I am most looking forward to this week: I want so badly to feel the baby move but I am worried that with having the anterior placenta it won’t be for a while.

What I miss the most: Wearing belts!

Symptoms: Besides some growing pains, nada!

Milestones:  Watch what you say...tiny bones forming in baby's ears mean she can now pick up your voice. A few more minuscule changes: Eyebrows, lashes, and hair are starting to fill in, and taste buds are forming. *Courtesy of

This is not technically a 16 week belly shot since it was taken Christmas Day but I am not that much bigger since then. (poor quality cell phone shot)

3 lovely notes from friends:

You look fantastic! I completely agree with you about the scale - I'm about to throw mine out! And I love your "comment of the week" ... LOL.
BTW - I wore maternity pants yesterday for the first time and I was able to wear a belt with them (they had belt loops.) I felt like my old self, but was a hell of a lot more comfortable in my elastic pants. :) Check them out.

Haha I pled the fifth too! I totally blame the holidays. We will all balance out now! I have been wearing maternity jeans for a few weeks now because they were much more comfortable than my regular ones. Once I go back to work I will be strictly maternity pants and most shirts will be too.

Yay, so glad you guys enjoyed the shirt! I've had it stashed forever and couldn't wait to finally give it to you! Have I mentioned how excited I am that you will finally get to be parents?!
