16.5 weeks

well heres what 16.5 weeks looks like.

So I don't feel any different, then I did 2 weeks ago...
But this weeks milestones are; anywhere from now -20 weeks I will begin to feel what they call "butterflies" of the bean swimming around in there. Im anticipating this moment, I lay in silence and wait to feel it...but I haven't yet, Im sure it will happen when I least expect it.
Bean is 4.6 inches and weighs about 3.4 oz. Tiny little thing still :)
Bean is beginning to develop sleep and wake cycles, which are generally short relative to a term baby.
From here on out its RAPID growth time.... and mommy Mar isnt excited about that, but its all worth it. RIGHT?

So I had a nightmare very early this morning, it was so bad I was awaken just by the terror.
I was surrounded by my friends and we were all just hanging out socializing when out of now where, there was an explosion, debris flying, we all screaming, I was running, so fast, and i turned around and saw more explosions ..... and I woke up... What makes this so weird to me is that when I woke up my room and house smelled of smoke so a campfire, and I was so weirded out at the fact I just dreamt of exploding, fire...and my house reeks of it......

I researched what my dream may have meant....
"To dream of explosions, portends that disapproving actions of those connected with you will cause you transient displeasure and loss, and that business will also displease you."

GREAT!!! just what I need more displeasure, and loss in my life.

and FYI my 16 week pictures are coming.... I swear. im a litle bit, but I will be updating the blog in the next couple of days with the new pics! :) so sit tight.

Over the last few weeks Ive been experiencing what they call "Round Ligament pains"
and they dont feel good at all, im assuming my little uterus has to really stretch to accommodate for the bean...which is great, but at the cost of some painful cramping! Last night I woke up to it and could barely turn over it hurt so bad. but hey! it could be worse right?

The countdown is on for THE ABC EXPO is Las Vegas, its one of the biggest baby & kid tradeshows, and this will be my second year attending. Im really excited about it because ill be able to SHOP and order some goodies for the bean and I! :)
heres a couple things ive been thinking about buying while there....

This is a portable crib I keep telling myself I "need"

This is the actual crib ive decided on.

And we'll soon see what else I end shipping back home!

Marcella and the baby Bean

Well im starting a little late with the blogging. but better late then never.

Name is Marcella, 24 years old, in a relationship (6 years), and 15 weeks and 2 days pregnant.
its been a BUMPY last 3.5 months, found out I was carrying life, while at work, being confused as to why the target brand HPT were giving me a bunch of Negatives, so I splurged on a digital HPT and low and behold, that little hour glass was spinning and BOOM "PREGNANT" emerged.
from there is was ALOT of Whats,Whys, Should I's, Whens? etc....
I live in Downtown LA in a beautiful loft, and babys daddy Joey lives back home in Camarillo.
so its been tough with distance being thrown into the mix while pregnant.
Just so this doesnt turn into a full blown novel, ill catch ya'll up real quick on the last 3 months, so from here on out it can be just subtle updates.
Im now in my 2nd trimester. I went to the Dr. at 6 weeks and was able to hear the heartbeat, which melted my heart.
went back at 10.5 weeks and got to see my little "bean" for the first time in a human form. which was SO amazing....
Joey and I decided we are not going to find out the sex of this baby, we want suspense! and surprise, so this is where "Bean" comes from, I refuse to call it "IT" or "he/she" so its just bean!
I also my first trimester screen which was hilarious, little bean was kicking, flipping all over, jumping around, and even sucking his/her thumb. It really made me start to realize, OMG Im carrying LIFE. so here I am now at 15 weeks, with my next ultrasound not scheduled until Sept.
I have been blessed thus far with NO SICKNESS what-so-ever, NO barfing, NO sensitive smell, NO weird cravings, and for the most part not much except Sore boobies, and a few migraines, here and there. Lucky me!

My roomate/ best friend and I have decided start a photo story with this pregnancy which we update 2 weeks, and it started at 14 weeks, you can follow this story here:
