Happy Memorial Day!

       Happy late Memorial Day to all the service men and women! After traveling the past couple of weeks, Matt and I decided to spend memorial weekend at home playing catch up. This picture is from the golf course at 16 weeks 2 days.

Total weight gain/loss: +8 pounds ugghh
Baby’s Size: Avocado
Maternity clothes? Stretchy dresses and work out clothes…will be going to get a bella band this week because the shorts I wore golfing were pretty tight…any more growing and they won’t button…here we go!
Stretch marks? No
Sleep: great
Best moment this week: Fishing, pool time, and golfing
Miss Anything?  Nothing really
Movement: I think so…every time I sit still for a while I feel little twitches (mainly on my left side and middle)
Food cravings: Chocolate and cake…I made pudding
Anything making you queasy or sick:  Nope
Have you started to show yet:  I am getting bigger, but not pregnant looking. I also have a small belly in the mornings and by the afternoon look 5 months (in pic)
Gender prediction: My upper belly sticks out more than my lower so girl
Labor Signs: No
Belly Button in or out?  In
Wedding rings on or off?  On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy
Looking forward to:  Getting a noticeable baby bump, my dr. appointment on Thursday, and finding out the gender
       We stayed home for Memorial weekend. We caught up on some house work, relaxed by the pool, and played some golf. This week makes twice in a row that I fell asleep within the first 10 minutes of a movie…not me at all. I now have all my energy in the a.m. and almost need a nap by about 3 pm. Hormones do crazy things… 
       I would also like to end this post asking for prayers for Erika's sisters family. Jenna and her two baby boys (one just born in April) will need all of the peace they can get as they grieve the loss of her husband, Arturo, whose helicopter (he was a pilot) went down in the Gulf yesterday. I was shocked to hear this news...life is so precious! R.I.P. Arturo.
