Lima Bean Update.


Today I had my monthly doctor visit to see how Lima Bean is doing, and all went well! We heard the heartbeat again... 160 bpm.  I am in the middle of my 15th week, so almost 4 months! My next doctor's appointment will be big, because I'll be half way AND we will find out the sex of the baby :)

In an effort to keep you all abreast on what's happening with my pregnancy, I've created a list that I will update as time goes on.

How far along? 4 months/16 weeks (minus 3 days).

Total weight gain/loss? Gained 8 lbs.

Maternity clothes? A few prego shirts and a belly band (as of today!).

Stretch marks? Nope.

Sleep? Sleep really well... I love it, actually. I still sleep on my tummy and I relish every moment of it.

Best moment last month? Going home and celebrating with family.

Movement? Not yet.

Food cravings? I like refreshing foods... like apples, strawberries, tomatoes, and lots of goat milk (I don't do any cow dairy for those who didn't know). I also love waffle fries at CFA. As of this week, however, I've committed myself to NO MORE fries.

Gender? Who knows!

Labor signs? Nope.

Belly button in/out?
 Kinda in and kinda out.

What I miss: Red wine and sushi.

What I am looking forward to:
 Next month's appointment - Boy or girl??

Most recent baby purchase: Gro-Via cloth diapers - yes, we are going to do cloth diapers! Check out the diapers here. I plan on writing a post on the pros/cons to cloth diapers and why we chose the cloth diaper route.

 I have to keep my pants unbuttoned all of the time as of this past weekend (does this count as a milestone?).

Lastly, I thought I'd leave you with a somewhat blurry, not so great photo of what Lima Bean is doing in my tummy. I must say I don't particularly care to take photos of myself, but I thought it might be nice for you all to see my progress. I'll try a little harder to get a side view next time.


  1. awww! You look so cute! All of those things are so exciting! Congratulations! Im so happy for yall!

  2. I love it! You are an adorable little mommy!! Congratulations!! :)

  3. You're so cute, Anne! Can't wait to find out the sex!

    P.S I love cloth diapers and fully intend to to use them too! =)

  4. Hi Anne! Congratulations!! Motherhood is amazing. I use cloth diapers. I would use them all the time if I was able to stay at home with Clark. The brand you are using looks very nice. I went with a cheaper brand...Kushies and the only thing I don't like about them is that they are bulky. But the ones you are using look a lot leaner. I might give them a try. How are your parents? How are Kate and Joby? -Donna (Adams) Chilton

  5. I forgot to tell you that I also make all my baby food. I use a kit called Fresh Baby. I really enjoy it and it doesn't take a lot of time. -Donna
