At 16 weeks yesterday, I realized that baby number 3 has been getting the short end of the stick. I haven’t waxed poetic each week about how I can feel the growth, how morning sickness came and went, or how my fashion style has completely changed since we received the big news. Should I be doing all of this? Maybe. But, right before I let the hormones get the best of me and start to cry, I need to point out that I have been micro-blogging my pregnancy escapades on Instagram. With growing bumps and cravings, the 4 Hats and Frugal Instagram community has been enunciated with updates. Here’s what’s been going down over there:
The belly has gotten lots of attention over on instagram, with me showing growth and my fashion issues. My skinny jeans decided to desert me early on, and I had to resort to using a hair tie to keep them together.
Of course, there are a few shots of the belly all on it’s own.
I hate cravings. They try to bust our grocery budget, and if I don’t get the thing I crave, I tend to either get Hulk mad or develop an ugly cry until my poor husband gets up and braves the stores to find it for me. I feel like a complete crazy person when they pop up. This time around, the cravings have been mostly healthy (how boring) but there were a few peculiar ones stuck in there.
While I did post about our new addition, and the shock of it all, the kid has been seen a few times on Instagram. Once as the official announcement, and just recently when I had a cool ultrasound that checked for certain growth on the back of it’s neck. We also ended up finding out the sex during that trip, but we’re holding off on sharing until the blood work comes back. Did you know that they can find out the sex of the baby now through blood work?! My mind was blown on that one.
I do plan on posting a few times this week about my pregnancy updates, and I even have a post ready for tomorrow with items that are on my “new mom (again)” wish list. So far, Target is the place to ogle for most of my coveted items. Until then, be sure to stop by my Instagram account for updates and hilarious pregnancy antics. See you there!
