Words and Pictures Wednesday

Dear August.....why are you leaving us so soon?  Yes you've been a hot one, yes summer will come to an end but time is moving too quickly.   
For me anyways....
I'm almost at the half way point in my pregnancy, I remember just wanting to reach the 8th week, then the 12th week.  Now I'm half way there.  We've been preparing the baby's room.  We put the crib together....I almost cried!!  I can't believe that I will have a tiny little person in there, that will need me for everything. <tear>  Soon, I will start sewing for the baby....I just have to decide on fabrics! (",)
Here's a quick pic from Instagram......
I wonder how much longer before I can't see my feet anymore!

Words and Pics Wednesday! With a side of pregnancy info......

Hi people!!  Today is definitely a good day!  I feel good, I'm blessed and have so much to be thankful for.  My only complaint is this dang heat!  The heat dome over Texas needs to pop....or just go away somewhere!!  Houston we have a problem - I'm melting.
I thought I'd share some quick pictures from Instagram for today's Pictures and Words Wednesday!!
Bought the paint for the baby's room!!  I love eggshell, easy to clean - I have to think ahead, before I know it little chubby fingers will be touching these walls. 

It was painting time!!  I even had my mask on - which is very uncomfortable.

I love me some watermelon, but now that I'm pregnant it's watermelon time alllllll the time! This was being chopped up at 5 in the morning, lol!

Eeeek!!  This just became real!  The hubs and I went to go buy the crib on Monday! 
Monday afternoon traffic.....after buying the above crib!  Houston traffic sucks pretty much all times of the least we were in the HOV lane and it was our day off.
While I'm in the sharing mood, here is some information about how my pregnancy is coming along.
Pregnancy Questionnaire

How far along: 16 weeks

Total Weight Gain/Loss: 0 lbs....but the baby is definitely growing.

Maternity clothes: Definitely....but I'm mostly wearing dresses and lots of leggings!! 

Stretch marks: No

Sleep: Getting harder to stay comfortable.  Sleeping on my sides is getting awkward especially with all the pillows I'm using.  Waking up 3 times a night to pee is no fun!

Best moment last week: We had our regular check up and the hubs was able to go with me.  We heard the baby's heart beating loud and strong!!

Movement: I believe I'm starting to feel the flutters! 

Food cravings: Seafood, spicy foods, watermelon, and chocolate milk
Food aversions: Salads mainly the lettuce, I can't have too much of anything sweet! This baby apparently does not have a sweet tooth or gum!  Which is a good thing I guess.
Gender: Don't know yet, we will find out in about 2 weeks. Hubby wants a boy, I want a girl - but I have a feeling that we are having a boy.

Labor signs: None, thank goodness.

Belly button - in or out? in.....outies gross me out!!  So I'm hoping I don't get an outie, lol!

What I miss: Energy, moving quickly.

What I am looking forward to: Finding out what we're having!

Milestones: Getting to 16 weeks without any troubles.
Thanks for stopping by, you all have a fabulous week!
