How far along? 16 weeks 2 days
Total weight gain/loss: down 6 pounds well i was down last time I got weighed 2 weeks ago
Maternity clothes? pants - yes other then that I am still in my regular clothes
Stretch marks? No new ones
Sleep: My back has been killing me when I wake up... but I am sleeping fine. In fact I am more tired now then I was in the first trimester
Best moment this week:
Finding out that they had to move our ultrasound up to the 17th
Movement: I am not sure if I am feeling anything yet. A couple of times this week I have thought that I might be feeling some flutters but who knows
Food cravings: It changes on a daily wait hourly basis. If I see it or hear it mentioned I will want it!
Gender: Right now I feel like it's a boy but who knows I have never been pregnant before
Labor Signs: None and I hope it stays like that for the next 23 weeks
Belly Button in or out? Still in
What I miss: Alcohol!!! We had to go to the liquor store on the weekend to get wine for Kim's baby shower and it was like my worst nightmare coming true!
What I am looking forward to:
Meeting this little one and drinking a cold Corona
Weekly Wisdom: Not sure what to put here... maybe that it is my body and our baby so we need to do what is right for us not anyone else
Milestones: 16 weeks!!! Wow I can't believe I am almost half way there

15 weeks

Today I am 15 weeks pregnant. I have been having a rough couple of days. I have been having a really hard time with the idea that people only see me as a pregnant lady. I just want to scream "I am still human and I do have thoughts every once in a while that don't revolve around this thing that is invading my tummy space!!" I am very grateful that I have so many people in my life that care about the baby and I but for the love of god stop asking me how I have been feeling when I have told you that I have felt great every time you have asked me for the last 8 weeks.

I am so happy that this baby is on it's way into our lives but I really need to have a few minutes, days or maybe even weeks when I don't have to talk about or hear about this baby. When it's my choice to talk about the baby it's easier but I just need a minute right now.

I think I might be a bad mom already.... how sad.
