16 Weeks!

Pregnancy is like a 9-month-long Snickers moment. Seriously. Last night, Brandon and I went to Wal-Mart after work. We were in there for about an hour and only ended up with out 10-15 things in our cart. Why? Because this girl couldn't decide what she wanted. And I got suuuuuper grumpy. [Cue the "Awww, poor Brandon!"] I've grown to loathe grocery shopping. (I used to love it!) I buy stuff at the grocery store and then a day later, I have absolutely NO interest in what I bought. So. Frustrating. We've spent way more money than we should eating out simply because I have no clue what I want to eat until right before we eat. And it usually takes too long to cook it, so we go get it somewhere. Really, I just want Chick-fil-A for every meal. Grilled chicken sandwich & a large fruit cup. All day. Every day.

I am so excited to find out the gender of the baby! A big part of me would love to have a boy first. First off, because I think everyone deserves to have a big brother! Also because then I know we would have at least one boy to carry on the Burnside name, my parents would get a grandson (since right now they have 4 granddaughters!) and it wouldn't matter if we had girls in the future :) However, I do loooove little girls. And would LOVE buying even more dresses, bows, and glittery things for her. So at this point, I would be thrilled for either!! I guess if we do end up having a boy, I'll just get to spoil my nieces even more!

16 Weeks

Due date: July 11, 2014
Size of the baby: About the size of a turnip!
Maternity clothes: The bump is trying to catch up with the bump I already had! lol I've had comments on people seeing a bump, but I feel like I just look fatter :) no defined bump yet.
Gender: We will find out THIS SATURDAY!!!
Movement: Nope..but I can't wait!!
Sleep: So hard to get comfortable..and my back pain isn't helping!
What I miss: Being able to grocery shop in peace. (And yes, that's a possible thing!)
Cravings: Fruit! Apples, grapes, strawberries, oranges. 
Symptoms: Back pain. And a couple of numb spots on my legs. Nurse said it was because the baby is sitting right on top of the nerves that go down into my legs. Silly Nugget!
Best moment this week: Finding out if we're having Mason Richard or Emma Reese!!
What I'm looking forward to in the next week: Spending some extra time with Mandi (my sis-in-love) and my two nieces Shelbi Jo & Karli June! :)
