Sweet 16

Every week I try to figure out what piece of fruit (or other food item) the baby is. I've never been right. Brad was so set on getting to a lemon and I just want to stay away from the watermelon (or Home Depot bucket as a co-worker put it).

After learning that baby is the size of an avocado this week I really, really wanted an avocado and turkey sandwich. Maybe that will be lunch tomorrow. I'm trying to be good and avoid lunch meat - but I just love my turkey sandwiches. Yes, pregnant women are supposed to avoid lunch meat. It's safer to eat when it heated up so I just get a warm sandwich - not my top choice but it will do. Ok, now I really, really want WhichWich.

Anyways - onto the baby news. Yes, baby is the size of an avocado this week - about 4.5 inches long & weighs 3.5 ounces. The little guy is starting to look more and more like a baby (I know there's still a long way to go). His heart is pumping more blood and toe nails are growing. Read more about baby's development at BabyCenter.

Everyday someone asks me if I've felt the baby move. I don't think so - but I might have. The description I keep hearing from people is "butterflies." Well, I feel something inside of me but it's more like someone poking me - not butterflies. I feel a little bit more confident that it is it the baby moving after BabyCenter described the feeling as popcorn popping. Who know if it's the baby or not - only time will tell.

I'm really, really starting to get annoyed with stores and their lack of a maternity section. Target still sucks, Kohls was ehhh (found 2 pair of pants that work), Old Navy was no help and the maternity section from my favorite store, Ann Taylor Loft, seems to have disappeared. GRRRR! My plan for Friday is to check out the Motherhood Maternity Outlet store in Grapevine Mills. There stuff seems pretty cute online - hopefully I'll have some luck there. If not, who wants to make me clothes?!?!

One month from today is the big sonogram!

  1. Good Luck Clothes hunting! Tell me if you get frustrated enough that you decide to just wear Hawaiian moo moos :) The best development in maternity fashion has been the "secret belly" pants. They are super super comfortable & some even look like real pants. [they come in shorts and capris to] Most of all, remember that you will get your regular clothes back one day.
