Well, I haven't bothered to post in a while because we were holding off on the public announcement until now and I didn't really have much else to share! Now that the secret is out, I figure I can share the journey with those near and far by posting on the blog! :-) I found this little 'form' and I am going to try using it to keep everyone updated...hopefully this will keep everyone in the loop without being too boring!

How far along? 16 weeks!
Total weight gain/loss: Still hovering at about 7 pounds - although after our 3 week eat-fest in Italy & Croatia in June, I don't think I ever really weighed myself until after we found out we were expecting, so I'm not quite sure but that's my best guess!
Maternity clothes? Oh yes - pants especially! I can't stand when things are too tight on my belly, it's incredibly uncomfortable.
Stretch marks? Nope
Sleep: Not getting enough and feeling like I always need more
Best moment this week: Hearing the heartbeat on Wednesday and recording it to listen to all the time! :)
Movement: None that I feel yet but we've seen quite a bit of activity on previous ultrasounds!
Food cravings: Nothing specific - I'm just always hungry!
Gender: Don't know - something makes me think it's a boy, but God only knows
Labor Signs: Thankfully no!
Belly Button in or out? In...but I've noticed a bit of change already...yikes!
What I miss: Wine, my normal clothes, deli sandwiches, and being more active
What I am looking forward to: Being obviously pregnant, not in the "is she...?" stage where people wonder if I just need to lay off the cheetos! :-)
Weekly Wisdom: To let go and just ENJOY my pregnancy... courtesy of the great doctor I saw this week.
Milestones: Announcing the news to the world - aka Facebook!
