16 Week Wowza!!!

How Far Along:  16 weeks and 3 days!!

Size of baby: Avocado…yummm Guacamole! lol

Total Weight Gain: 7 L.B.’s total!

Gender: 14 days away from knowing!

Movement: Not as many of those flutters this week, but still a few somethings that makes me stop and wonder if it could be!

Sleep: Doing good! I even stayed up to 10:30 last night! Woohhooo!

What I miss: Going into my closet and knowing anything I pick will fit!! Now I never know what I’m going to get when I step into a pair of pants!!

Cravings: Reese’s cups! Luckily this craving was satisfied a few days ago 🙂

Symptoms: Thanks goodness for no leg cramps and….the eye twitch is gone! I feel like if I mention it, it’ll know it and come back, so shhhh!!

Worst Moment this week: Pricing out laminate hardwoods for our townhouse so we can sell it but then realizing how expensive those things are!!! So needless to say, that house will be rented for another year until we can get ready for that expense!

Best Moment(s) this week:
–  Throwing Rebekah a baby shower at work! It was so much fun and so great to see her so excited!

–  Hopefully tonight after we tour our first daycare! Fingers crossed we really like it and Baby Stancil gets on time!


Happy Almost Friday!!


Just Another Doctor Appointment

Yesterday was another doctor’s appointment! I told Dustin the other night that I’ve never been so excited to go to the doctor! I just love going and seeing how I’m growing and how the baby’s doing.

So yesterday, Dustin couldn’t make the appointment because of meetings at work. So I trudged in all alone, picking up some yummy Starbucks on the way up to the office. Decaf of course! I love seeing all the pregnant ladies in the waiting room too! Some are look like they are about to pop and some are like me, almost halfway there!

I got weighed in, of course and had my blood pressure checked. I’ve gained a total of 7 pounds! Apparently that’s not too bad, well at least no one said it was bad so I take that as a good sign! It was a little shocking to see, especially after only gaining 1 the last time I was weighed in. I ate a pretty good-sized breakfast, so I”ll blame some of it on that! My blood pressure was great! 116 over 64! Pretty proud of that one! 🙂

The most exciting part was getting to hear the heartbeat again! This time is was in the 140’s and still very strong! I didn’t see the exact rate unfortunately! Hopefully it was high 140’s 😉

We also went ahead and scheduled our big ultrasound for 2 weeks from now!!! We’re still trying to decide how to tell our family and friends but whatever it is it’ll be exciting and fun! And some of you will probably hear from this blog so I’ll make sure to make it exciting too!!

So stay tuned!! 🙂

16 Weeks and Gettin’ Stuff Done!

Happy Monday Everyone!! And Happy 16 weeks to me and baby!!! Baby is now 4/12 to 5 inches and weighs in at 3 1/2- 5 ounces! That’s the size of an avocado!! Woohhoooo!!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! We sure did and we finally were able to scratch some things off of our to-do list! It felt great until I decided I needed to add about 5 more things. So we’re up….and then we’re back down again. At least we finally got started, from now on it’ll be even easier to dive into the projects!

Dustin put up the new fan in the baby’s room on Sunday and I painted the trim in the dining room that I’d neglected for the past 4 months!! So thankfully there’s no more yellow paint anywhere to be seen in there! The hall will be tackled this weekend! And I know what you’re thinking, I probably shouldn’t be painting! I know I know, but I’ve been assured that it’s perfectly fine in well ventilated spaces. It was so nice this weekend, so I opened the back doors and all the windows to get that air-a-flowin’! The fan looks amazing by the way! I forgot to take a picture when we got it all up but it’s a fan and it’s now definitely made the room look like it’s of this century!

More to come!! 🙂
