Baby Angel Progress- Week 16

This week (as with all the other weeks) went by so fast!  The week itself was a little slow but the weekend went by way to fast, Hubby, the dogs and I went to Santa Cruz for Fourth of July weekend and had a blast!

How far along? 16 Weeks. July 1st, 2015

Total weight gain/loss: This morning I weighed in at 126 so I have gained 12 pounds in 16 weeks.  Sometimes when I weigh myself I weigh 129 so my weight fluctuates a lot.

Maternity clothes? Yes, just shorts so far and they are awesome!

Stretch marks? Yes. Same ones, on my hips…grr.

Sleep: Eh…this week I had back to back bad dreams again, nothing like it was a few weeks ago..just some upsetting dreams.

Best moment this week: Like every week I have a bunch of “best” moments.  The week was a bit slow at the beginning, I babysat for a friend and her daughter and I spent a whole day (literally, the whole day) watercoloring!  Nothing to exciting but it was so relaxing and great to just sit there and be creative.

Then for the weekend hubby the dogs and I took off for the beach, we had an AWESOME time and took lots of photos.  We went exploring and stopped at a bunch of beaches, ate yummy food, walked the boardwalk, walked the pier and wondered around downtown!  Santa Cruz will always hold a special place in my heart and I hope one day we return!

The beach by the pier and boardwalk was super packed for the weekend!

This little guy stayed there for a while almost like he wanted me to keep taking his photo, it was so funny but it turned out to be one of my favorite photos from the weekend!

Little 16 week baby bump!

This photo when I posted it on instagram is really made me tear up.  It makes me think about how much I am going to miss it going to be just AJ and I.  Don’t get me wrong I am excited and happy about having a little one but I am going to miss it just being “us”. I know that probably sounds a little selfish but I know things will never be the same, not that they will be bad, just not the same.

While we were out exploring we stumbled upon this awesome community farm that is run by the homeless garden project.  We picked our own strawberries and holy moly they are delicious!  If you are ever in the area I suggest you swing by and give them a visit!

We got home on Sunday and Monday I started a new baby project!  Another best moment of the week was starting my new project of tie-dyeing baby onesies!  It was my first time tie-dyeing alone (not at a business) and I think they turned out pretty good!

I’ll probably be posting a tutorial on how I did them once I get better at it!  The below photo is right after I unwrapped and rinsed them before I threw them in the washing machine.

Here they are right after they went thru the washing machine and dryer.   I’m so proud of them!  I know they aren’t perfect but I’ve learned a lot from this first time and I can’t wait for my next batch!

Food cravings:None  yet hopefully I will soon!!!

Anything making you queasy or sick: Eh…some chicken dishes, random smells…

Gender: A.J. still says boy and I’m thinking girl.

Labor Signs: None, thank goodness!

Symptoms: Feet ache super bad, lower back pain oh and swollen hands and feet randomly.

Belly Button in or out? in.

Wedding rings on or off? Off. super sad about it…

Happy or Moody most of the time:Mostly happy unless I’m in pain or sick LOL

Looking forward to: We will soon find out the gender!! (week 18!) also its the BIG ultrasound where we find out if baby is developing good!

Thanks for reading!!!

XOXO Love Always,
