Hump Day Bumpdate - 16 Weeks

First of all... how much do I suck that my last post was 2 weeks ago and it was a bumpdate also? I have literally not even opened my laptop since that last post. I'll do better. I'm going to try to at least. Cross your fingers ya'll. ANYWHO... on to the baby news =) 

16 Weeks! Baby might be trying to show =)
(Im also reduced to selfies because whenever I'm ready to take my picture boyfriend isn't around! LOL)

How far along: 16 weeks =)

Baby size: Depends on what app I use. What to Expect says baby is the size of an Avocado, and I have another app called "Ovia Pregnancy" that says baby is the size of a Dill Pickle. I'm pretty sure these are different sizes so... who knows LOL

Weight gain: As far as I know, I've only gained 3 pounds so far. And its clearly going to my stomach the little bit of weight it is. 

Maternity clothes: Nope but I've been rubber-banding some of my pants. They're starting to get a little snug.

Stretch marks: Not yet! Hope they stay away.

Sleep: Depends, last night was the first time I woke up at 5am because I was STARVING! I literally could not go back to sleep without eating. 

Gender: I know it! I'm trying to get my boyfriend to take some cute pictures this weekend so I can post up gender reveal pics.

Movement: For the past couple of days in the morning I think I feel something, then I'm like hmmm was that the baby? I don't know. I can't tell yet.

Best moment this week: Maybe feeling the baby move.

Looking forward to: Shopping! I am so excited to start buying clothes and other things. 

Food cravings: No cravings still except Icees. Earlier this week I wanted mangoes but after I got them the craving went away.

Weirdest food I ate this week: I ALMOST said I ate nothing weird until I remembered that I ate french fries from McDonald's. That's not weird for some people but I haven't eaten it in almost 4 years and I really really wanted Sweet and Sour sauce. It was kind of strange. 

Anything making you queasy or sick: Not anymore really. Thank goodness!

Labor signs: No way!

What I miss: Sushi! I want some so bad.

Symptoms: Fatigue, itchy nipples (tmi?) and mooooooodddyyyyy!

Things that suck: my emotions! LOL. They are uncontrollable. And even worse when I'm hungry. My boyfriend probably thinks I'm a psychopath.

Things that don't suck: Knowing the baby's gender, watching my bump grow, and the fact that Orange is the New Black is a little over a week away on Netflix. =)

Til' next time loves!

HumpDay - Bumpdate 14 weeks

You guys knew it was coming! =). I STILL don't have a bump to even show but I don't want to put off the updates any longer cause I want to make sure I remember everything. 

See? Some barely there bumpage. I tell people the baby is hiding LOL

How far along: 14 weeks! =)

Baby size: Baby is the size of a lemon

Weight gain: None... which is strange to me but the doctor hasn't acted like its strange sooooo not worrying for now.

Maternity clothes: Nope!

Stretch marks: No. But I should probably really get into the habit of lotioning more often because I heard that helps.

Sleep: All day! It never feels like enough sleep. 

Gender: Don't know yet but dying to find out!

Movement: Not yet! Even though every time I've gone to the doctor we see him/her moving away so I know I have an active baby in there.

Best moment this week: Getting over this cold or allergies or whatever it was that's been attacking me!

Looking forward to: Finding out the gender, feeling the baby move!

Food cravings: I have the worst case of  "I see, I want". Pretty much anything I see... I HAVE to have.

Weirdest food I ate this week: hmmmm can't think of anything

Anything making you queasy or sick: Steak. BLEGH. 

Labor signs: NO WAY!

What I miss: Pepsi... *sigh*... and sushi!

Symptoms: Headaches.. though im not sure if its pregnancy or sinus related, and pregnancy brain! I forget everything... I was texting people Happy Birthday on Mother's Day! LOL. I've also had this nasty taste in my mouth since the first trimester that WILL NOT GO AWAY!

Things that suck: Having a stuffy nose. Having to go to work LOL

Things that don't suck: Knowing that all this will be worth it in a couple months =)

5 Annoying Things People Have Said/Asked Me During Pregnancy: First Trimester Edition

Pregnancy has a habit of removing all (or the little bit of) tact that people seem to have. Apparently NOTHING is off limits to say/ask a pregnant chic these days. I'm compiling a list of annoying things that people say to me throughout this pregnancy because..... I just like to reminisce on people's lack of intelligence sometimes.

  • Take your vitamins! OK this doesn't really annoy me because honestly, my memory is crap nowadays. I'd probably forget if I wasn't reminded daily. But a reminder is enough! I don't need you to physically force the vitamins down my throat! It's come close. LOL
  • Are you guys gonna get married? Eventually.... that's the plan. Am I gonna run off and get married because I'm pregnant? NO. I live in 2014 not 1814. I want to get married for love, not because I got pregnant and people think it's the "right thing" to do. 
  • You need to eat. Ya don't say? I've only managed to keep myself alive the better part of 24 years. Don't know how I would've survived without that little gem there!
  • Was it planned? So now I need to know what exactly you're asking. Was having sex planned? Was having a baby planned? Was making the baby the day I had sex planned? What exactly are you asking me? What part of my private life  EXACTLY are you trying to invade? 
  • How's "your boyfriend" handling it? This one probably irritates me the most. Because to me... this makes me feel like I trapped him in some sort of way. How SHOULD he be handling it? Are you expecting him to be handling it poorly? WTF does "handling it" mean? That sounds like someone died. Babies are exciting! We've never given an indication of having a poor or irresponsible relationship. So he's handling it like anyone else who's excited to be having a child handles it. TUH!
This is only the first trimester edition because I know it continues. It'll only get worse and I'll only get more impatient with people. I can't wait til people start telling me how big/small I am or impose their opinions on everything that I plan on doing. That's when the real fun begins =)

**sh*t that almost made the list includes: You're not breastfeeding are you? You have a little pudge, but you had some fat anyway. How old are you, 14? (that was actually a doctor!), etc.**
