I know, I know … how boring to post a photo from instagram that most readers have seen but I’m just not ready yet to do these weekly bump photos!!! Time is just flying by even though at 4 weeks and 2 hours I would have said differently. So eventually/soon I will be taking a lovely bump photo and sharing that instead of the same ole same ole but for now you’re stuck with a photo I instagramed this past week of my cousin Randi and I [lots of Randi lately too, her maternity session was blogged yesterday] doing our back to back photo just like our mama’s have. And of course I’m eating ice cream.
How far along: 14 weeks, 2 day
Sleep: Not so good lately which is weird because it’s not that I’m super uncomfortable but more so that I have crazyyyyy vivid dreams and also catch myself sleeping on my back throughout the night and I’m trying to stop that now. I think I might have to get that pregnancy pillow from the basement my sister gave me soon.
Best moment this week: I would say announcing it online turned out to be a lot more fun than I thought it would be. It is sooo nice not having to hide it anymore and keep it a secret. And soooo thankful for all the sweet comments, texts, calls, and cards we’ve received. We are so blessed to have great friends, family, and followers 😉
Have you told family and friends: Yes, few straglers are still hearing the news but everyone knows now for the most part. Good ole internet did the trick.
Miss anything: I’m going to miss sleeping on my back! And sleep in general.
Movement: Not yet
Food cravings: raspberries
Anything making you queasy or sick: I just need to make sure I eat every couple of hours or I’m no bueno
Have you started to show yet: Yes! Kinda scared at how big my bump is already but it is pretty exciting. I THINK I might be stepping out of the ‘is she just fat stage’ but some-days I’m still lingering. The above photo was taken at 13-1/2 weeks and mind you, it was after eating all day Sunday but I am not that big when I wake up … it gradually grows throughout the day haha
Gender prediction: Boy as of now, but we’re not going to find out 😉
Labor signs: No
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding rings on or off: On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!!!! I did have a few crying episodes this week about a family dog being put down and then freaked out about Zoey dying someday. But other than that I’m happy!
Looking forward to: I am soooo looking forward to my next monthly doctors appointment in a few days! I think they are so fun.
How is Zoey handling the news: Still ignoring the news, we’re making sure to spend LOTS of time with her though so she doesn’t feel left out … and heaven forbid … not the center of attention.
I will try my darnedest to blog these bump updates the same day weekly soon. Its pretty tough finding someone to snap a photo of me … besides Matt. I think I might just have to teach him how to do it … he isn’t the ‘creative’ type 😉 We shall see how this goes! Otherwise, back up is always to call the sisters!!!
xoxo, happy Friday!
