Maternity Monday

Whoops! I haven't posted in a few weeks. Here's where we're at today:

How far along? 21 weeks
Total Weight Gain: My scale says I'm up about 4 lbs from my last appt. I have another appt on Thursday, so we'll see the official damage then.
Maternity Clothes: Yup. I found a few cute dresses for the party we had to go to this weekend.
Sleep: Still pretty good. I took an awesome nap yesterday...I slept through the whole first half of one of the football games.
Best Moment This Week: Lazy weekend and no students today. The last few weeks have been stressful!
Movement: I'm feeling everything from little flutters to bigger thumps. I had my hand on my tummy the other day and I thought I could feel it on the outside, but I wasn't sure. Probably just wishful thinking.
Gender: Baby wasn't very cooperative at our anatomy scan. They made a guess but told us to keep our receipts. I have to go back this Wed. for another ultrasound since baby wasn't being cooperative. I'll have them check again.
Labor Signs: Not for quite a while please!
Belly Button In or Out: In, but it's getting shallower
What I miss: having more clothes to pick from.
How I'm feeling: Pretty good. Hungry!
What I'm looking forward to: ultrasound and appointment this week. Unfortuately, they're not on the same day.
Weekly Wisdom: Don't look at the scale. It will just make you sad.
Milestones: Feeling the baby kick!

Maternity Monday (on Tuesday)

How far along? 17 weeks 2 days
Total Weight Gain: maybe a pound or two? I'll find out the official gain tomorrow at my appointment.
Maternity Clothes: Yup. I got new clothes for christmas (jeans and tops). I can still wear some of my non-maternity tops.
Sleep: I'm on winter break, so I've been getting lots of sleep. Love it! :)
Best Moment This Week: Christmas
Movement: Nothing yet. This is the first week where it might be possible for me to feel the baby moving around. We'll see if it happens soon!
Gender: Our appt is in Jan, but I probably won't share.;)
Labor Signs: Not for quite a while please!
Belly Button In or Out: In
What I miss: being able to have a drink during the holidays.
How I'm feeling: Pretty good. Hungry!
What I'm looking forward to: Appointment tomorrow and the bathroom project finally being started!
Weekly Wisdom: Eat when you're hungry. Even if that means a PBJ after you get home from the 11pm Christmas church service.
Milestones: I still have nothing. At least, not that I notice. I'm sure baby is doing all kinds of wonderful things. :)

Here's a picture from last night. Sorry for my horrible appearance. I think I'm getting a cold and I'm on winter break...

Winter Break!

As much as I love my job, I was so ready for winter break to start.

The past 2 days I have been able to sleep in (until 8am!) and just relax. Yesterday I went shopping with Toni, went to the gym and got most of the presents wrapped.

Today I'm taking lazy to another level. I have spent the morning in my pjs watching tv, facebooking, and reading blogs and message boards. Now that it's lunch time I'm going to be brave and head off to the mall and grocery store for some last minute items.

I love days off! :)

Maternity Monday

How far along? 16 weeks
Total Weight Gain: maybe a pound? Depends on what time I weigh myself.
Maternity Clothes: I bought some new jeans the other day. I'm trying to hold off until after Christmas to buy some shirts.
Sleep: I like it. I wish I could have more of it.
Best Moment This Week: 3 day week! Woot!!
Movement: Nothing yet...soon I hope!
Gender: Our appt is in Jan, but I probably won't share.;)
Labor Signs: Not for quite a while please!
Belly Button In or Out: In
What I miss: my back not hurting and my clothes fitting
How I'm feeling: Still hungry and tired, but doing well!
What I'm looking forward to: Winter Break (2 more days!) and Christmas. Christmas is my favorite holiday of the year!
Weekly Wisdom: Being pregnant during the holidays is awesome. No guilt (or at least very little) over the amount of food I eat. :)
Milestones: Nothing this week. Baby is the size of an avocado.

Here's my 16 week picture from last night (with my new haircut!)

I found a dollar on the floor at Target tonight! Score!

My friend "Penny" at Homeless Pennies would be so proud! :)

Maternity Monday...a few days late.

Such a busy week and it's only Tuesday night!

Here's the weekly update:
How far along? 15 weeks (and 2 days...3 if you're reading this on Wed)
Total Weight Gain: none yet :)
Maternity Clothes: pants. Toni brought over her box of clothes, so I have lots of new things to try on.
Sleep: I am having some troubles sleeping at night. Either I can't fall asleep or I toss and turn all night. I think some of it is just a little stress from all the craziness of this week!
Best Moment This Week: nothing yet. The hubs is out of town and I am crazy busy! Hopefully I make it to the weekend!
Movement: Nothing yet.
Gender: Our appt is in Jan, but I probably won't share.;)
Labor Signs: Not for quite a while please!
Belly Button In or Out: In
What I miss: not feeling like I have to pee every 30 minutes.
How I'm feeling: Hungry!! the last few days I've felt like a bottomless pit!!
What I'm looking forward to: Winter Break (one more week!)
Weekly Wisdom: pregnant teacher + crazy 7th hour class = hormonal mess (aka tears).
Milestones: is the size of an orange? I got nothing this week. :P

I don't have a picture this week either because the hubs went out of town for training and we forgot to take a picture before he left. We'll just have to make sure we take one this weekend!

Maternity Monday

Sorry if this seems like too much since I just did this a few days ago, but I wanted to get on a regular schedule. Since I change weeks on Sundays, I'll try to do this post every Monday. :)

How far along? 14w1d
Total Weight Gain: none so far. :)
Maternity Clothes: same as a few days ago. I'm going to have to start getting some more mat. clothes.
Sleep: I still love sleeping, but I'm struggling to fall asleep at night.
Best Moment This Week: Hearing the heartbeat on Thursday.
Movement: None yet...too early.
Boy/Girl?: Appointment set for mid-January
Labor Signs: Not for quite awhile please!
Belly Button In or Out: In
What I miss: not smelling everything to such a degree. There are some things that I would really be fine with not smelling.
How I'm feeling: hungry and lumpy.
What I'm looking forward to: Telling my students tomorrow and Christmas!
Weekly Wisdom: I don't really have any this week.
Milestones: I'm offically in 2nd trimester and I have a little bump. :)
