BUMPdate 16 Weeks!


16 Weeks!!


FOUR MONTHS PREGNANT ALREADY?!?!?! I can’t believe how quickly this pregnancy is going, we’ll have a new baby in the house in five or six months! I’m feeling really good, still having contractions but the doctor seems to think it’s fine. The amount of discomfort I have doesn’t feel normal but I’m taking the medication he prescribed and I go back in to see him in a week and a half. I lay down and rest when I can and TRY not to overdo it…

I have been all about burgers and fries this time around, it’s kind of awful, but so good at the same time! I’ve only gained 6 pounds so far (surprisingly) and I’m hoping to keep it to 25 when it’s all said and done but really, I’ve been eating burgers and fries like nobody’s business so whatever…


 Prenatal yoga!! I am so excited, I love taking this class! My doctor's office offers free classes twice a week with an awesome yoga instructor from Treetop Yoga her name is Nicole and she is so sweet.

My wardrobe consists of maxi skirts, dresses, one pair of maternity shorts, and one pair of jeggings I found in the girls section at Target. Seriously though, they’re just like maternity pants only $30 cheaper! Hallelujah…with my growing belly I'm going to have to start getting creative soon I think...

Funny things pregnancy related….

*I forget stuff ALL THE TIME…it’s ridiculous….most of the time I have to think back really hard to try and figure out if I’ve already taken my medication for the day…or I’ll walk out of the house without the car keys….or I’ll forget what I’m saying mid sentence…these are just a few examples, it’s bad…
*Oliver while hugging my belly “Woah! Your belly got really big! We gotta get the baby out NOW!” It’s funny to me that he acknowledges my belly growing…
*Carter is either kissing my belly (awwww sweet!) or beats it (like CPR chest compressions beats it) just for fun. I guess he’s practicing his “big brother” duties already….
*I point to my belly and ask Carter “Who’s in there?” Carter says “BABY!” and then lifts is shirt up, points, and yells “BABY!”…he’s getting there…

 I can’t wait to find out boy or girl! Maybe in the next month we’ll know…


I'll leave you with a picture of Carter kissing my belly and also practicing chest compressions on my belly. (Don't worry I don't LET him bang his little brother or sister around)...

    1. I'm due March 8th :) Baby might come in February though if he/she is like the older two. My boys were 2 and 3 weeks early. I LOVE that you have twin girls! I've always said that if I have girls I want twin girls haha I'm sure it's so much fun!
