Pregnancy Update: 16 Weeks

This was a scheduled post from way back when that obviously didn't post like it was suppose to, so I'm going to go ahead and publish it...

Lance and I found out we were expecting baby #2 back in September.  We are so excited, but I was a bit let down when I found out my due date was a couple weeks later than I had suspected.  We will be welcoming our new bundle of joy on or around May 21, 2012! Our daughter, Teagan, will be a BIG sister, and we are so freaking excited!!  Tuesday's will be my weekly update post, and I am going to try to accompany them with a pregnancy vlog for my YT channel :)

How far along? 16 weeks, 1 day...168 days to go!
Size of the babe? An avocado
Weight Gain: 6 pounds--up to 158.  After all of the crap this baby has had me eating the past 16 weeks, I thought it would have been a much bigger gain!
Cravings: My cravings for cheeseburgers, Qdoba, pizza, and every other non-healthy food, have FINALLY subsided and I'm now back to eating healthy and at my normal times.
Symptoms:  Pretty much every other terrible symptom that I experienced in the first 15 weeks of pregnancy: nauseousness, absurd food cravings, tiredness and laziness are GONE! I still can't brush my tongue without gagging myself.  I'm finally over my 3:00 slumps of where I couldn't even keep my eyes open at work! 
Movement: I thought I felt a little flutter earlier this week, but maybe that was just wishful hoping...
Baby to-do list: There are lots of things I would like to get done to prep for baby, but the first on our list is going to be getting Teagan into her big girl bed so that we can start putting together the nursery.  I'm thinking during the Christmas break when I'll be off for 15 days!
Maternity Clothes: I'm fitting into my size 10 and 12 jeans without any problem.  My size 8 dress pants are all too snug, but I can't freaking find where I put my size 10 pants!  I've seriously made myself crazy looking through every single tote that I've lugged out into the garage.  So, yes, I am loving my new favorite Old Navy full front maternity dress pants.  I have them in khaki and black, but I need to get a couple more pairs! 
Baby Buys: Since we will not be finding out the gender of this baby, it is so stinking hard to buy clothes, blankets, everything really!  These days I swear they do not make anything gender neutral.  You get either blue or pink accents into EVERYTHING!  ugh!  
Gender/Baby Names: My husband and I are going to try like heck to NOT find out the gender!  I think it's a boy though! We have a couple names picked out, but not ready to reveal them just yet...

Oh, How Pinteresting Monday!

Today is that day that I am getting back into this here blog!  I will no longer be uninspired and lazy too busy to not fulfill at least a weekly post.  I'm starting off this new habit by linking up w. Dana at Real Life, Real Estate, Real Dana and doing an 'Oh, How Pinteresting Monday!'
