16 | LOVELY LITTLE RANTS

16

I'm 16 weeks and 5 days!
Baby is the size of an avocado, so like 4-5" and 3-5 ounces. I'm actually showing guys! Like, I'm at the stage where some people probably think "that girl is pregnant". We have this super super sweet neighbor who is a grandma and she always is soooo nice when I see her. She's always asking about Framed and I honestly wish she were my actual grandma haha. Anyways, the other day, she sees me, and does a gasp while patting her belly and smiling super big. So that basically told me people can tell now which I am kind of excited about! Like it wasn't an awkward thing, it was like a "yay you're pregnant!" thing.  




Practicing all those pregnancy lady poses. The other day J goes "You're just like a pregnant person cause you keep putting your hand on your back and belly!!" haha It wasn't even on purpose so I guess that isn't just something you see in pictures, it's something I just do!!! (except this picture is obvi posed)
I've been trying to wear loose clothes, more for comfort if anything! Hence this dress. And not like this is new or anything but Jason's shirts are my favorite thing ever because they're so comfy. He used to kind of try to protest me always sneaking his shirts every now and then but by now he's used to it and realizes that his closet is my closet :) 






Dress: Groopdealz via Lucy & Lyla, wedges: Groopdealz (similar here

I haven't felt movement yet but I am d-y-i-n-g to! At my last appointment they said I should be feeling baby soon so I'm like "k baby, any day now!!" but baby isn't listening. 

Right now I am still sleeping fine and I can even still sleep on my belly (don't worry, dr says I can sleep on my belly till it's uncomfortable so baby is fine guys) Surprisingly laying on my back is uncomfortable! Like if I'm on my back too long then my lower back gets kinda achy (probably cause baby is right thereish) so yeah! I wasn't expecting that!

As fas as being sick goes, I'm feeling so much better! Heart burn has started a little but nothing too bad. I'm just glad I can work more and not feel sick every .2 seconds anymore.  I do get headaches almost everyday but luckily my father in law is a chiropractor so I just go get adjusted and it helps clear them up because I do not want to be poppin Tylenol everyday. 

"cravings" are pretty much the same as always, fruit for days and random junk food but nothing insane. At first when I would have a craving, I would buy bulk of it but then after eating it once, it made me sick to think about eating it again! Needless to say, I wasted lots of food... oops. I leaned to just buy small portions if I ever have a random strong craving. 

Jason is already a little sweetie about baby. Yesterday we went to get more huge cement bricks (for Framed stuff) and I tried to help put some on our cart and he was like "please don't lift those, just watch!!" cause he didn't want me to be lifting heavy things with a baby in my belly! I'm really good at watching though :) So yeah, just cute sweet stuff like that to make sure I'm comfortable and stuff! Or if I say I'm tired, he tries to make me take a nap haha he doesn't want me to push through being sleepy or hungry or anything cause he just wants me to be happy and healthy! 

Anyways, that's all I can think up for now! 2 more weeks till we find out gender ahhhhh!! Jason wants a boy (mostly for soccer purposes) and I hate saying I want this or that cause I'll be happy with whatever BUT I am kind of getting more and more excited about possibly having a little girl! Whatever we have, as long as it has those Shiflet genes I will be a happy mama :)

  6. Start a poll, I am voting GIRL for sure! And you are adorable. You are totally going to be happy you did these posts! Even the little things will be a big deal someday. If I still have a blog when I'm pregnant someday I am going to be SO annoying haha. I kind of laughed picturing the baby as a little avocado lol. Whenever people use examples I can't help but picture it as that thing. Like Alana did one recently that said the size of a roller-skate and all I could think of was a rollerskate in her belly hahaha. And pregnant or not this dress is like my dream. I'd love to live in a nightgown all the time quite honestly. And I steal Johns t-shirts every time I'm sick. Something about it just always makes me feel better.

    1. That's a good idea!! I'm going to do one next week before we announce what we are having! I think girl, too :) haha I can't wait to read your prego posts someday!! And Ted will be such a good big brother ;) and that is so funny! I always think it's funny to, the things baby is compared to in size. Can't wait till mine is a roller skate haha!! I haven't bought any maternity clothes yet so I TOTALLY wore this dress pregnant or not, so dang comfy! Husband clothes are my favorite ever, so big and so soft I dunno what it is!!

  7. You look so great! Has being adjusted by a chiropractor helped? I've had a lot of pain in my lower back and wondering if that would help. And I can totally relate to people not wanting you to lift anything. I finally had to tell our family at the gender reveal that I am still capable of carrying things! (Not that I really minded, though!)

    1. Thank you!! and YES!! I swear by the chiropractor. I had never gone to one till I married Jason and I am sad I missed out all these years haha it helps so much especially with lower back pain! And exactly, I can still lift things but at the same time I'm like... well if you really want to lift it for me... :) haha

  8. I'm with Morgan, I vote girl too! I feel like most of the other bloggers who are pregnant now or just had babies had boys, so it's gotta be a girl. :) How exciting that people are starting to be able to tell you're pregnant!

    1. Yay I think it's a girl, too!! Like, I'm sure of it haha but if it's a boy I will still be so excited!

  9. Yay 2 weeks! Whatever you guys have it's going to be so so so adorable and perfect! I hate sleeping on my back so that's good that you are able to sleep on your side/belly until it's uncomfortable. Getting adjusted sounds perfect, I had no idea it would help so much with headaches, maybe I need to look into that! That little bump is so cute :)!

    1. ahhh you are soooo sweet, thank you, Nikki!! :) And you should totally try being adjusted for headaches, it helps SO much!! I'm just glad my father in law is a chiropractor haha If you try it, let me know if you like it!!

  10. Feeling a baby move inside you is the COOLEST thing ever! No joke! That's seriously something I'm so looking forward to when we start trying for No. 2. I hope you feel movement very soon! As for the sleeping, get yourself a Leachco pillow. Best pregnancy purchase I ever made! (:

    1. I've felt little flutters (I think!!) and I can't wait to feel more, and kicks! K I will look into that pillow because Jason is not a fan of being my real life body pillow hahah thank you for the suggestion cause there's so many options it's hard to know what to pick!

  11. How adorable are you! I see a teeny tiny bump! Precious! And how fun that you are finally showing enough that your neighbor could tell. She sounds like a sweet lady. :) I'm so glad you are feeling better, girl! Being sick all through a pregnancy is no fun!

  14. You look amazing!! 17 weeks was the first time a stranger asked me when I was due and I was so excited =) I didn't feel movement until 22 weeks, so don't get worried or anything if it's not super soon. I was sooooo anxious.. turns out my placenta was in the front so it was cushioning baby's kicks!

  18. You look great! Don't stress about the kicks--I drove myself crazy waiting for them and honestly didn't realize she had been moving until you could literally feel them from the outside (right around 20 weeks I think)...I just always thought it was gas bubbles or something haha.

  26. So exciting!! You look amazing. You should be able to feel some strange popcorn like feeling any time now. It'll be quite a while before your hubby will be able to feel kicks, but it's just amazing! Pregnancy is so awesome! This is giving me baby fever all over again!
