How far along? 16 Weeks
Maternity clothes? No
Stretch marks? No
Sleep: I have been so exhausted this last week that I have been dragging Ryan to bed between 8-8:30pm! The sun is still out at that time. but my body is ready for sleep and I haven't even woke up to pee in the night because I'm so sleepy. But watch out- the moment I wake up I'm running full speed to the bathroom.
Miss Anything? I'm not a big drinker. Ill enjoy a cocktail now and again so it was very weird to actually crave a drink this week. and not just any drink but the Yellow Cab from Iggys. Maybe because its kind of sour and I'm all about the sour stuff right now.
Movement: Pretty sure I have felt this little babe moving a little. Still not certain though.
Food cravings: Milk. Always wanting milk. and strawberries. but I am very picky about how ripe they are. I need them to be the perfect ripeness.
Gender: Ryan is back to thinking Girl and I am back to thinking Boy.
Labor Signs: No
Symptoms: Other than pissing my pants? I have been having some really bad gas pains. Ryan keeps telling me to just fart but that isn't it. I don't have to fart or I would let them rip because they hurt really really bad.
-- Want to hear a funny story? I know you do. Well about 4ish years ago- soon after we married- I was having some horrible tummy pains throughout the day. It was the weirdest thing and I had no idea what the problem was. I did everything that night to help it feel better and nothing worked. I made myself go to sleep and around midnight woke up screaming (literally) in pain. I couldn't even move. Ryan was totally freaked out and said we were going to the ER right now. On the way there the pain was so bad I puked everywhere. We got there and waited... waited... waited... they drugged me up and I finally feel asleep while Ryan sat next to my bed as I lay there thinking I was dieing. They did some tests and were fairly certain I was experiencing a bad case of GAS PAINS! Now I had never had gas pains before that point in my life and I honestly thought I was going to die. Ryan was seriously pissed. HA. He gets gas pains all the time and we had a medicine cabinet full of Gas X. We got home sometime around 5am. Just in time for him to get dressed for work. I have never lived that one down. I had my husband take me to the ER for gas pain! haha. Now that I know what it is, I try not to be so dramatic about it but seriously it can hurt really really bad. I was told by my doc that I can take some GasX so when it gets really bad ill take a pill and it helps.
Look what poor Ryan has to live with for the rest of his life. Lets all feel sorry for him for a minute.
Belly Button in or out? In.
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy. I haven't been moody at all really. Well I don't think I have been. Who knows what Ryan would say. I have been trying really hard to do some extra things for him since he has been such a rock star the last few months with me being all lazy and not wanting to do much. He really is sooo amazin. Love him.
Looking forward to: Revealing the Gender! ahhh. We are having a little party on Makenzie Day and we will all know soon! I cant wait. Remember I am doing that little giveaway for a lucky someone who guesses correctly. You can still cast your vote on my 15 week pregnancy post!
I want to personally thank EVERYONE that shared their pee story. It means a lot to know I'm not totally alone in this :)
I am sorry but I got a good laugh out of some of your stories so I hope you got a good laugh out of mine. Its pretty funny to think about now. and thanks for your advice esp. about the kegel exercises. I am doing those so ill just up the amount of reps I do and maybe that will help. Here is to having a pee pant free week!
