16 weeks!

Here's a 16 week update on Baby Sorensen! It's been a great week. Now that we've told the world, it's nice not to have to be sneaky about this little one. I've also kicked pretty much all morning sickness to the curb, and I couldn't be more psyched about that. To top it all is out in TWO days!! Can't wait for lazy summer days by the pool. Which will probably turn into not-so-lazy summer days of getting ready for a tiny new human to join our family.

How far along? 16 weeks 
Baby is the size of: An avocado!
Total weight gain/loss: Still about the same.
Stretch marks? Not yet.
Sleep: I'm getting a little better at staying up these days! No more 8:30 bedtime for me. I've also noticed I don't sleep quite as soundly as I did before I was pregnant. It's not too bad though.
Best moment this week: Having people start to notice the bump!! It's definitely made an appearance this week.
Cravings: All the cold, icy, fruity, ice-creamy things. Stealing leftover otter pops from the school's freezer like it's my job. #sorrykids
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not big on hamburgers or ground meat. And I still hate swallowing pills.

Miss anything? I made sugar cookies the other day, and I was super disappointed when I remembered I couldn't eat the dough! I held strong though. No salmonella for Baby and me!
Have you started to show yet? I think after this week, you could officially say YES.
Gender prediction: Daniel and I both think it's a girl. Who knows, though! We'd love either one.

Happy or moody most of the time: Just peachy.
Maternity clothes? Not yet. Belly band is a great thing though!
Movement: I've started to feel these little pop-flutter-jabs when I'm sitting down and relaxed! It's wild. But I don't feel it all the time.
Labor signs: No.
Belly button in or out? In.
Looking forward to: Finding out gender! And being done with school, let's be honest. TWO DAYS!!

With that, I'll leave you with the story of my first official crazy-pregnant-lady moment. 

I've been loving avocados lately, and I made some guacamole the other day to eat with chips. When I went into the pantry, I couldn't find the bag of tortilla chips I had just bought 2 days ago. Gone. No chips. I was so disappointed! I had to eat my guacamole with stupid club crackers. It was a tragedy. When Daniel got home and was interrogated, he admitted to eating the entire bag of chips in 2 days all by himself. So, I went to the store and bought some more a few days later. Unfortunately, the tale does not end there. On Saturday, the EXACT same thing happened. AGAIN! I made homemade guac and found the SECOND bag of recently-purchased tortilla chips completely decimated by my husband. Only this time, I was pissed. I put my guac in a tupperware and we drove to the store to buy two giant family-size bags of chips, one of which promptly got marked MANDY'S with a big black sharpie. Then I ate my guac out of the tupperware in the car on the way home from the store. Haha!! Now, I'd like to think this extreme overreaction on my part is a direct result of pregnancy. Poor Daniel. His argument of "just check the pantry before making the guac next time" is starting to sound more reasonable. ;)


  1. Wooooooooo!! You look great! And glad you are feeling better!!
    And that chip story is HILARIOUS!!!!!

  2. I LOVE THIS. Your chip story sounds like something that would happen in our house; except, I'm not pregnant, and I would still be upset.
