A few thoughts on 16 weeks (and pregnancy thus far):

--I'm excited to finally look pregnant... I may take this back when I get as big as a whale but for now i'm loving my growing belly. When it's bare it looks like there is a cantaloupe perfect placed in the center of my abdomen..
--I'm not loving trying to sleep on my sides. I've been a stomach sleeper all my life and everything else is so uncomfortable to me.
--I haven't experienced cravings yet, but I am 100x more thirsty.
--We have a boy name and maybe a girl name...
--Emotional has taken on a whole new meaning the past few weeks... hormones are a funny thing.
--Now that the baby can hear Josh has been talking to my belly everyday (don't tell him I told you, he might be embarrassed) ;)

Feeling pregnant is so surreal. I'm so so thankful for this tiny babe inside of me, and I'm pretty sure I tell Jesus that about 30,000 times a day.

  6. Gah you're the cutest. I love your interpretation of the "week pictures." Also, ask your doc, but with Buck I was able to sleep on my stomach as long as I was comfortable...I definitely got to a point where I wasn't comfortable sleeping on a basketball but I certainly enjoyed it while I could! That's a blessed babe in that little belly of yours! (I totally had a dream last night that it was a boy!) :)

  7. Trying to sleep on my sides killed me too! I slept on my stomach until about 22 weeks, and then it just wasn't doable for me anymore. It's really funny the things we learn about ourselves when pregnant. You look great! I hope your pregnancy goes perfectly and that you have a healthy, darling babe. These pictures are so cute!

  16. I know unasked for advice while pregnant is sometimes (often) really annoying so feel free to stop reading from this on... but if you're still reading, as a stomach sleeper I found 2 things comfortable: hugging a pillow to my chest while laying on my side seems to help and be my current favorite sleeping position. It seems to keep my shoulders from sort of falling "in" and feeling squished having a pillow pressed up against myself if that make sense. Also on a few nights (now at 32 weeks) where I've just REALLY needed a good back rub from the husband while laying on my stomach, I'll place 1-2 pillows under my chest/shoulders, and 1-2 under my hips so there's sort of a gap where my belly can almost hang (or at least not have so much pressure) and that helps do the trick also. Hope you find some comfort soon, if not, at least it's only temporary, and though often uncomfortable and even at times painful, it's still a blessing and will be worth it in the end. Good luck :)

  19. I am so with you on being excited to be showing, and the whole emotional thing. Oh, my goodness, I'm emotional normally, so pregnancy has amped that WAY up and it's ridiculous! Thank goodness for my understanding husband!
    I also crave water way more.
    You look beautiful, and I love your dress!

  21. I can only imagine how wonderful it must be to be 16 weeks pregnant. I would be very proud of a neat little bump, it's kind of proof of all the feelings and emotions and thoughts you're having are well-placed and totally justified because it is happening! When that time comes for me I'm certain I wont be able to shut up about it, and I hope I can take some pictures as beautiful as these to remember it with. You look stunning and your hair against that dress is just the nicest.

    Wishing you luck sleeping - I'm a side sleeper (not to rub it in) and I've always found that the left is the easiest side to nod off on. Apparently it's better for you..something about circulation. When I can't get to sleep its usually because I'm too hot - I make myself deliberately a bit chilly by lying under a damp towel and then when I'm ready for warmth I'm prepared to get under the duvet. It works!

  22. That very first photo reminds me so much of an old photo of Patti Smith by Robert Maplethorpe. You look so lovely. Congratulations on 16 weeks!

  24. How gorgeous you look! I am so happy and excited to be able to follow you and your baby in the very first leg of your journey together...thank you!

    A completely irrelevant question; your typewriter tattoo isn't a Smith-Corona Skywriter, is it? I recently received a vintage Skywriter as a present and have been a little obsessed lately :)

    Anyway, congrats!
