16's baaaaack...

...Morning sickness.  Dum dum dum duuuuuum. (Wow, it's hard to express evil-sounding music through a blog post.)  I thought I was done with all that but for some reason it has come back with a vengeance during the past week. However, it's no longer random nausea & puking throughout the day - it is solely confined to the mornings now (like REAL morning sickness!).  I feel gross in the mornings, always puke about 45 mins after getting up, and then feel gross off and on until around noon. Then I'm fine the rest of the day.  This has made getting to work on time very very difficult. Let's hope this bout is short-lived.

Here's my growing bump:

Weight is +4 lbs and baby's the size of an avocado!

This week has been funny with running into people I haven't seen in a little while who didn't know I was pregnant.  Inevitably they'll glance at my stomach, pretend they didn't and then say suspiciously; "So, what's new?". I usually then just point to my belly and just say; "Baby" to which they squeal a bit and respond with; "Oh yes, you have that pregnancy glow!"  

I find this amusing. I'm pretty sure I do not have a 'pregnancy glow' right now. In fact, I think I would currently classify it more as a 'dead fish glow'. I know it, you know it, but thanks, I guess, for pretending.

I also get a lot of: "Ooo, are you excited?!"  Heck yes I'm excited. You have no idea just how excited we truly are.  But really, has anyone EVER answered that question with anything other than "yes"?  One of these times I'd like to answer with; "Meh, not really" just to see their reaction but I don't think I have the guts for it.

What I have NOT gotten is: "Was it planned?" like so many women on my BMB seem to have. That's probably because I'm in my thirties and have been married for a while. In my case I think most people have been wondering when the heck we were gonna get on that but luckily I haven't received any insensitive comments.  Yet.  

I haven't felt any movement from little Petey Nugget yet but this is apparently around the time that I should start feeling things (supposedly it's like a bubbles sensation). I hope I'll be able to report that next week!  I also have my countdown on to when we find out if it's a boy or girl!  (18 days to go!)


  1. Ugh. Sorry the morning sickness has returned. At least this time it is only in the morning instead of all day sickness. I love the bump pictures! EEK! I hope you get to feel Pete move soon! How exciting!

    Can't wait for the gender reveal! YAY!

  2. Sad! Go away morning sickness! I hope it passes soon.

  3. Boo morning sickness! You look fabulous and nothing at all like a fish!

  4. You look great! Hopefully the morning sickness eases up completely soon.

    I have gotten the "was it planned?" a couple of times. I always want to give a snarky response but don't have the balls to do it to their faces. Such a ridiculous question!

  5. Sorry the sickness is back boooooo. I hope you feel movement this week too! So exciting.

    I also hope you don't get weird comments/questions from folks!

  6. Booo morning sickness! I love your adorable little bump, you are so cute! Such exciting milestones coming up, and I can't wait to find out if baby IS a Pete! ;) Lots of love and I hope the morning sickness makes a departure soon! <3
