16 weeks!

Marination Time: This picture was taken at 16 weeks, 1 day.  I'll be 17 weeks on Tuesday!

Musings on the Weekly Photo: My boss told me I looked like Charlie Brown in this sweater.  Is this a good thing?  I can never tell.  Maternity shirts make me look giantly pregnant these days.  Which I prefer, because I look like a super fat kid in my regular shirts that are still long enough to wear.

Due Date: March 5, 2013

This week's produce item: This week, baby is the size of an avocado!
I also found the "How Big Is Your Baby? - Dad-to-Be Ediition" and I like it SO much more because they're concrete things. I mean really, how big is an avocado? Is there a standard avocado?

So in the Dad-to-Be version, baby is the size of a Blackberry phone.  
Boy or girl: We find out in less than a WEEK!  Bought the pinata yesterday, have the candy, have some we just need an ultrasound!  Stil sure it's a boy but now I want a girl more than ever because we finally came up with a girl name I am 100% sold on - Della.  

Currently Craving: I'm good now, but this morning I was a crazy person and made PB go get Bojangle's breakfast.  LIKE, NOW.  RAWR.

Currently Avoiding: Went to a college friend's wedding last night and had to avoid the wine slushies. BOO.  Can't think of much I've been voluntarily avoiding...still just iffy on meat, though I had steak at the wedding last night because that's what was served.  Can't believe I got that down!

Weight: Gained about another pound this week - up to 138.4 now.

Belly Button Status: My little outie nub is still visible, but not popping out through my clothes yet!

Sleep Grade: I pretty much fall asleep on the couch by 9pm, go to bed, and sleep dead through until my alarm clock goes off at 5:15 for work.  I do get up to pee once or twice but I'm like semiconscious and go right back to sleep.

Recent Crazy Dream: I was dreaming about a bunch of my students last night, it was very weird.  They were all in the Olympics and I was supposed to be their coach.  I was trying to watch Youtube videos of how to do a gymnastics floor routine for one of my girls because I had to coach her and had no idea how!

Evidence of Pregnancy Brain: Hmmm, can't think of anything specific.  Hasn't been too awful this week.  

Movement: PB's last day of work was Friday, so I went over to Jackalope Jack's near the hospital for his farewell celebration...I hadn't felt anything in several days, but we were in a loud bar with a lot of loud people and I think that totally pissed the kid off!  I felt it again last night at the wedding reception when the DJ turned up the bass...really neat!

Appointments? Can't. Wait. Until. Thursday.

Any baby related purchases? Just decorations/invitations for the gender reveal fiesta.  I figure I'll hold off on everything else until for sure that this kid is a boy.  

Best/Worst Thing to Happen in the Last Week: I don't usually post about work and I'm not stupid enough to start now, but it has been a rough, rough week at school.  Best thing? Got to go to a gorgeous wedding last night, which made me remember our wedding last year that was so close to this time.  Also made me REALLY want to go back to Disney World!
