Baby Yancey - 16 Week Bumpdate

Better late than never right!?  Headaches have revisited me this week & haven't been too kind.  Feeling much better though & ready for a long, productive weekend!

Top: Old Navy - Similar  Skirt: Target - Similar

How far along: 16 weeks!

Baby Size: The little babe is the size of an Avacado!

Weight Gain:
  Not sure, I would say a couple lbs maybe?  I'll find out for sure next week.

Maternity Clothes: I officially wore my first maternity item last Friday, jeans!  They are the pair I ordered a little while back at Motherhood Maternity (these & they're on sale!).  Overall, I liked the fit but, will have to get them hymned since I'm a bit of a shorty & since I'm not quite ready for the full panel yet I just simply folded it down & they worked perfectly!
*Note: I'm wearing regular jeans today & rocking the rubber band trick! Ha!

Stretch Marks/Swelling:  So far so good!

Sleep:  Can't really complain... except when Bingham hogs the bed. ;)

Exercise:  I started stretching after my pre-natal massage & it has really made a difference.  I feel so much better!

Food Cravings or Aversions:  Nothing really this week.

Gender:  8 days people... 8 days!!!

Movement:  I don't know if it's possible to feel the baby this early on but, if it is I would swear to you I felt the little babe twice this week!  Once while I was in my car, around lunch time.  It was this sort of grumble thing right around my belly button.  It caught me off guard & since I was hungry at the time I chalked it up to my stomach growling.  Then, Wednesday morning (I stayed home from work due to a killer headache, more below), the pup had woken me up, I was laying in bed & felt the same grumble feeling twice!  Caught me off guard again & I just laid in bed praying it would happen again but, no luck.  Could have been that I was hungry then too but, it could have been the little babe... Guess I'll know for sure in another few weeks or so!

Symptoms:  I really thought the headaches had subsided however, I'm afraid these are one thing that will hang around throughout this pregnancy.  I had a terrible one that started out light Tuesday afternoon & continually got worse throughout the evening.  I ended up staying home on Wednesday when I woke up & I still had this headache.  I caved to the Tylenol & used ice packs.  The dark guest room helped a lot too & thankful to be on the mend from that!  & Yes, I'm getting peppermint oil stat!

Labor Signs:  No

Belly button in or out:  In

Wedding rings on or off:  On

Mood:  Overall good - wanting to feel 100% to tick things off of our to-do list though!

Nursery:  Still has boxes & a lot of things that belong in other places being stored there for now.

What I miss:  Being able to take major meds for headaches.  Sorry to whine, I've just never experienced headaches like these.

Best moment this week:  Thursday - Matt is officially back to a day schedule!!

What I'm looking forward to:  A long weekend filled with productivity & time with my main man!  Might even get to take the pup to the dog park too - hopefully!

A Fresh Face!

No, this isn't a post about a great face wash or cleanse... A new face & look for The Fancy Yancey!  I am so excited about this new, fresh, simple & inviting layout!  All put together by the super talented Shannon @ Shannon Page Design!  I have worked with Shannon before... back when this blog had another long little name!  She was a pleasure to work with, taking all of my different ideas & bringing them all to life as well as suggesting edits & so forth that would enhance my blog & layout.  Contact Shannon if you're in the market for a new blog look!

So, let me show you around my new space!

For starters, the blog header & pages.

I've updated my "About" section along with my "Contact" page.  The "House Tour" page is new & will be updated as I give y'all a virtual tour of our house, room by room.  The "DIY" & "Recipes" pages are the same but, they are both a quick reference for all of the DIY projects & recipes that I've shared here over the years.  Some are quite old so, don't laugh too hard when you see some of the pictures!  {Updates will be made to old post in the coming months!}

As mentioned the other day, I started a FaceBook page for my blog!  It's been fun & a good way to share the blog on a new platform!  Click along for other social media accounts like Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Bloglovin & e-mail!  Speaking of Pinterest, hover over a picture & you will find a "Pin This" button on each picture!

You may have also noticed 3 new categories or life stages/events if you will.  "House 2 Home" follows along with all of our house renovations from start to finish.  The "Mr. & Mrs." section shares all of our wedding recaps - love those memories & don't ever want them to get "lost" in the depths of the blog.  And of course, the most recent life event - Baby Yancey!  You can find all things related to baby & pregnancy under, well... "Pregnancy".

And last but, not least... Looking for a specific post or posts pertaining to one topic?  Take a look through the blog archive & labels.  {If you can't find something, feel free to ask me!}

I must say, thank you to everyone for all of your continued support of myself & this blog over the years!  It really is so fun getting to "meet" new people & make new friendships!  The blogging world is such an amazing place & I'm thankful to be a part of it.

Baby Yancey - 15 Week Bumpdate

A day late, almost a picture short.  Between needing to look descent (because no one wants to see a repeat of last week!) & two schedules that pass each other for a quick hour, it's hard to get this thing completed.  However, I want to keep up with it if for no other reason but, a keepsake.  So, will y'all bear with me once a week for oh... about another 24 weeks??  You're the best!

So, here we go!

How far along:  15 Weeks!  I seriously had to keep checking back to last weeks bumpdate to make sure this was right... Pregnancy brain!?

Baby Size:  Little babe is the size of an apple or navel orange - grow baby grow!

Weight Gain:
  Not sure but, I would say there's some weight gain!

Maternity Clothes:  Not yet but, is it weird that I'm ready to start wearing them!?  I tried on a pair of maternity leggings the other day & let's just say I'm not ready for them yet.  :(  Hopefully they'll fit soon!

Stretch Marks/Swelling:  Nope!

Sleep:  Pretty good

Food Cravings or Aversions:  Nothing really, which feels/seems sort of weird.

Gender: 2 more weeks!!

Movement:  The other night I was trying to convince myself I was feeling some little flutters but, I think I was just feeling my heart beat.  Womp womp...  Hopefully soon though!

Symptoms:  My baaack!  Mainly my sciatic nerve but, oh ma gosh!  I did have a prenatal massage yesterday & it was amazing!  I'm ready for my next one!

Labor Signs:  Nope!

Belly button in or out:  In

Wedding rings on or off:  On

Mood:  Super relaxed after my prenatal massage!

Nursery:  Made some progress this last weekend & will make even more progress once the hallway is done & things can find their home again!

What I miss:  Nothing really comes to mind this week... Just ready to get my back feeling 100% again.

Best moment this week:  Sending out Gender Reveal invites!!  & Chatting with my girlfriends about what we're all wearing for the party.  Soon you won't hear anymore about the gender reveal party... 2 more weeks!!  :)

What I'm looking forward to:  A productive weekend with Matt on the home front & brunch with my girls Saturday morning!
