16 Week Bumpdate




Rooftop of our condo! It's been beautiful in San Diego! That's the Pacific to the left!

How far along? 
We are 4 months (and a few days) along!!

Baby size?
An Avacado

Cravings?
I wish. I'm back to not liking much food at all. I can eat without getting or feeling sick, but nothing tastes good. I even had 5 Guys on Sunday because I knew I wouldn't want to eat if I went home after church. It wasn't even good. I'm so sad and frustrated. I've always loved eating and I AM hungry, but I'm just having to force myself.  I do crave everything back in MS. But I have a feeling if I actually got to eat it, I'd be let down as well. I hope Im good and hungry in June!

Aversions?
Smells are dying down this week a little. I still smell everything but it doesn't smell bad. Doesn't smell good.

Symptoms?
A little tired. Sleeplessness. I'm getting out of my lazy mode and keeping my house straight daily. HEADACHES. I got my essential oils in and have been working with those a lot. They contain my headaches, not completely eliminate them. I had my 16 week check up this morning and doc did give me something for them!

Mood?
I get my feelings hurt so easily! But then I have really good days too!

Looking forward to?
Nick coming home and a movie date. Popcorn does sound good actually! It's the little things, ya know?

Nick this week?
Wrapping up his time in training. I think he is ready to get home for some real food. I'm already planning dinner for his first night back home.

What's new?
I have my gender reveal party invites printed and ready! I have the Ustream channel set up! Also, I got my tripod in the mail, hence the rooftop picture from today! I worked on some cutey patooty decorations on Sunday that I can't wait to use!



Waiting in Wonder Memory verse

As God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves in compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.
Colossians 3:12


It's crazy how much of a roller coaster these hormones take me on. Yesterday I was anxious and upset about nothing and today I'm in the best mood ever. I think going to the doctor and hearing everything is perfect helped that. I'm going to ride on these endorphins for as long as I can. My headache even went away after the checkup. Guess its obvious that stress is where my headaches are coming from. 

Hope ya'll have a happy week!

Cutest picture ever! I am so sorry you're having a go of it with headaches and food! I can't even imagine everything making me sick! Hopefully it gets better soon!

Ooooh, another San Diegan blogger?! Awesome! I get so excited whenever I discover another blogger from San Diego. (None of my friends blog. It's such a bummer!) Yay for 16 weeks being pregnant! Pregnancy is a very exciting time for women. Although, we go through all these changes, isn't it amazing feeling knowing that you are having a baby? You're almost halfway there! Congratulations!
