My Pregnancy: 16 weeks and counting…

Christmas is here and David and I decided this is the week to surprise our parents with the gender of Baby Bricken.  Awesome Christmas gift, right?  My mom was convinced we were having a boy, so when she opened the box and saw pink booties she was floored.  So, cat’s out of the bag.  We’re having a girl!  Poor David.  She’s going to have him tied around her little finger <3.

My pregnancy seems to be moving along rather smoothly.  Workouts are going well, although I really miss my pre-workout caffeine fix and energy drinks.  My eating is somewhat out of control (at least for my standards), but with the new year comes a new start, so I’m not going to stress about it.  At 16 weeks, I’ve gained 8.5lbs and know the holidays may pack on a few extra.  I’m not “eating for two” per se, but I’m going to take advantage and indulge from time to time.  Hey, baby wants what baby wants .. in moderation of course.


Happy Holidays Everyone!
