How far along: 16 weeks as of Monday 7.28.2014. I can’t even believe I’m almost half way through my pregnancy!!! The weeks are flying by.
Baby is the size of: a lemon (3.5 ounces)
Movement: Still haven’t felt movement that I’m completely sure is baby, but every now and again I feel little flutters.
I’m feeling: Still feeling good, no real pregnancy symptoms which has been great. I recall my mom saying that for her being pregnant was fantastic… so maybe it runs in the family.
Exercise: This past week has been pretty hectic and I haven’t been able to get much exercise in. =(
Sleep: I’m back to late nights and early mornings. Thank goodness for daytime naps!
What I’m reading: I’m currently reading a book called Diaper Free. We want to try and see if we can use the elimination communication method to “potty train” from the get go. We’ll see how that goes!
Baby preparations: A while back I bought a book called Buddha at Bedtime and just recently found out that there was another book by the same author called Buddha’s Apprentice at Bedtime and had to get it! This book is just as beautiful as the last and the stories in this one focus on the eight-fold path which is so cool! I can’t wait to read it to little Dita!
Other than that, I haven’t made any progress on baby preparations. Unfortunately, we’ve been concentrating on other major events in our life that aren’t as happy. We’ll be flying to California in a couple of weeks to say goodbye to my niece and Konrad’s Opi. It’s been a very sad week this past week.
Other exciting things: We finally got all our belongings from Hawaii and I’m mostly unpacked. We also got most of the new furniture that we ordered for the house, so now I at least have a table to eat meals at and a couch to sit on. Once we things a bit more settled I’ll give everyone a video tour of our new house.
The bump so far
I see a pattern arising in my shirt color lol 😉
