16 weeks

I went garage saling this past Saturday with my sister in law and it was so difficult to not buy baby clothes! But, only 12 more days until we know and then I will get to get the cute Gap baby clothes at garage sales. Ugh, I should’ve just gotten that cute girl Gap dress–oh well. 
Anyways, onto sixteen weeks. 

 Biggest changes this week that I have noticed is that I am feeling baby flutters! and I am really emotional. I almost cried when we went to dinner with family because Travis wanted to sit across the table from me and not next to me. Then I realized I’d be super embarrassed and his mom would think I’m crazy. So, I held back my tears and just gave him a dirty look across the table. He said “Now I can look at your beautiful eyes from across the table”. I responded with “Yada, yada, yada…”. Really…I’m blaming that one on the pregnancy hormones.

I also had an emotional breakdown after a friend’s kid jumped on my stomach on accident. I walked away and fought back the tears–mainly due to fear but it was also really painful. Then after we drove away, I broke down after Travis asked me if I was okay. I told him that it just scared me and I starting bawling. He rubbed my back and said “It’s okay, babe. It’s normal to get scared about something like that. But, the baby is fine. Remember…it’s an Albini.” Ha. I think those tears were somewhat warranted but I still felt kinda silly. 
Weeks: 16
Weight gain: 5 pounds total
Changes: Feeling baby flutters!! Oh, and the tears.
Maternity clothes: Just wearing loose fitting pants/skirts.
Cravings: Salad, fruit, pizza.
Best moment this week: Realizing I was feeling the baby move and it wasn’t just gas bubbles. It is still kinda hard to believe it is the baby in me!
Worst moment this week: Almost gagging up Prenatal pills. Eck.
Movement: Flutters–can’t wait to feel more kicks, though!
Missing Anything: Sleeping on my stomach. 
Looking forward to: Finding out if he or she is a boy or girl!
