I’m 4 months, I’m 4 months! Say what?! I’m still feeling great, and not much has changed since last week, really. Sleep is still interrupted a few times each night (come onnnn bladder, you’re supposed to be better this trimester!) and I’m still wearing my regular clothes and not much of a bump yet. I thought I saw a bump the other day, after we ate a nice big meal at La Bou (Chinese Chicken Salad, Tomato Bisque and a baguette, mmmmmm) but it disappeared later that night, so I guess it was another fake out. This baby likes to do that. ;)
We went to our friend’s Halloween party on Friday. It was the first time I’ve had to celebrate the holiday sans drinks. They had a yummy non-alcoholic grape sparkling drink concoction that was deeeelish, though. And thankfully, I have fun friends, so it was still a blast! ;) We even danced the Time Warp. Yeah, I know. It was pretty legit.
I had a huge craving for In N Out on Saturday night, and so naturally that is where we went for dinner. It. Was. Amazing. Just talking about it is already making me want it again. Oh man.
We spent all day Saturday shopping for a new couch, and we still haven’t made a decision. It’s hard! It’s important! And I want a pretty couch that is also really comfortable, which is apparently NOT the easiest thing to find, let me tell you. Those darn tufted couches that are so gorgeous and that I love so much? Guess what? They are sooo uncomfortable. I guess they’re only for looks, which I mean, is great if you have an extra room that you need a “just for looks couch” for, but we just have the one living room, and we kind of need a comfy couch, you know? But also cute! It must be cute! Somebody tell me this isn’t a lost cause?! Oh, and also, it can’t be crazy expensive. So, there’s that too. Impossible, I tell you.
If you love your couch, where’d you find it? I’m taking suggestions and tips!
Have you ever had In N Out?
What were you for Halloween?
Hi!!! Okay, I am teeny like you are and it took FOREVER for that bump to show when I was pregnant. I so wanted to look pregnant, but I swear not until maybe, MAYBE month six did anyone even have an inkling I was pregnant by looking at me. Couches? Try Crate and Barrel (you probably already have). :>
OMG not until 6 months?! So crazy!! Well, I suppose we shall see what happens with me! I know everybody is SO different, it’s insane! And ohh we haven’t checked Crate and Barrel yet! Thanks for the rec :)
You are adorable and even not pregnant I crave In N Out and we don’t have one in El Paso. Boo!
Ahhhh noooo! If it wouldn’t be absolutely disgusting, I would totally mail you some! :/
My never been pregnant self thinks its kinda awesome that you aren’t showing much. I have an irrational fear that when ever I am blessed with being with child I will blow up like a blimp. So here’s to hoping I’ll be like Nicolle and not show until the third trimester.
Furniture shopping can be so frustrating when you’re trying to find a compromise between looks and function. Comfy and fashionable shouldn’t be such a hard combination to find.
Haha I had that same fear, so I definitely understand! I’m definitely not complaining! It’s just kind of weird, you know? Because, like you said, when you picture being pregnant, you definitely picture that bump like right away! :)
Girl where is that sweet baba hiding? You’re TINY but looking as lovely as ever xx
Aww thanks so much, sweet girl!! Not sure where baby is, I guess he/she is shy? ;)
Okay, I was hoping to not hear that couch shopping with those specifications is impossible! I knew it would be difficult. My husband and I are going couch shopping next weekend, and have the EXACT same specifications! It has to be affordable, comfy, and definitely CUTE! Wishing you luck!
Haha I’ll let you know if we find anything that fits our picky standards!!! :) We found one we like from JCPenney, and they have a furniture sale that’s ending tonight, so we’re going to check it out!!
Im 12 weeks and bigger than you! You’re do tiny and cute. I look like I ate too many burritos lol. I’m having the same couch problem! Happy 16 weeks
Awww I’m sure you look so cute, too!!! And yes, I get the burrito problem too haha so funny ;) Happy 12 weeks, love!
I have never been to In-N-Out Burger and it’s actually on my bucket list. Really, a bucket list with only 50 items on it and one of them is eating there. I must go. Soon. Also, I love the costumes and Mugatu is wonderful.
I think that’s a fantastic thing to have on one’s bucket list. Come to California and I’ll take you to In N Out :)
Can I just say that I love that you dressed up your cat in a costume too!! =D
Haha I know, isn’t it adorable?! It’s actually our friend’s cat. Our cats would NOT let us dress them up. Believe me, I tried ;)
You are SO TINY! It took me forever to show with my second, but I totally popped right away with my first, crazy! Anyways, my hubby and I have also been on the hunt for an affordable but durable couch too. There is a fairly new furniture place right down the street where we live in downtown Lodi called Furnish 123. They were super helpful and it was a husband and wife that own the store. Prices seemed to be pretty reasonable and they were willing to kind of work with you. Might be worth looking into!
Ahh you live in Lodi?! That’s close to us!! :) I think we might have found one we like at JCPenney, but if this doesn’t work out, then we will definitely check it out! Thank you!!!

My husband and I looked EVERYWHERE (multiple times at each store!) when it came to purchasing a couch and landed at JCPenny. We opened a charge there and saved like $100, too! Plus, they delivered it like 3 days later! :)
That’s so crazy!! That’s literally EXACTLY where we found a couch we like!! :) YAY for the JCP. Who knew?! ;)
I LOVE your halloween costume! you are so adorable! you are barely showing, not fair.
Thanks girl!! I found the uniform dress at the thrift store, and it all just fell perfectly into place, haha!
well, the good thing about not showing yet is that you can still fit in your normal clothes :)
finding a couch really is hard. We looked for a few months and then got really lucky that my cousin had to move and couldn’t keep his 8 month old couch so he gave it to us. It’s still just temporary in my mind but at least it ended some disagreements for a while. Good Luck!
Whyyy is couch hunting so hard?! Who knew??? haha and you’re right: I’m glad I can still fit into my clothes, for at least a little while longer!!

You look amazing, you’re totally going to be one of those pregnant girls that everyone envies because you only get a belly and the rest of you looks totally unpregnant.
Buying a new couch is a huge commitment, you’re going to have it for a long time and its not an easy/cheap thing to buy so you have to love it. I’m from Canada so I am not sure if you guys have the same stores where you live, but have you tried IKEA? Maybe they have something cute and comfy?
You look amazing! Even though you can’t see your bump yet, you’re definitely glowing. My bump took forever to show too… I would think I see it after a meal, but in the morning, when my stomach was empty, it was gone. I think mine started to peek out around week 18. But my mom said when she was pregnant with me, she didn’t show till she was 6 months! So it all depends on the person. :)
Hi Katie!! Congratulations on being a new mama!! We also did a big couch search last year, and wound up going with the EKTORP IKEA couch that you use with slipcovers. Don’t know how you feel about the slipcover idea, but they have tons of options that fit great so you can’t really tell that they are slipcovers. Their white slipcover is only around $40 I think which is really good? And, the couch itself is very inexpensive for the quality that you get. It is super comfy!!! My sister loves visiting just to come over and nap on ours. :) Good luck on your search :)
cutie patootie! love love love your Blaire costume!

You are so tiny at 16 week! I have never had In and Out. My boyfriend and I went to a Halloween party on the Saturday before and we were batman and catwoman and then we went out again with friends on Halloween and were Jack and Coke (we just wore tshirts:)
O.M.GOSH. You’re totally Blair! I went to a costume party dressed as Blair too, but I didn’t have a real Chuck Bass (if only!) So I printed a picture off and carried him around on a stick. When dateless, make a date, I guess lol!! And like one of the above commenters said, you’re going to be one of the pregnant girls who only shows in her stomach and the rest of her isn’t pregnant looking at all!!
Your costumes are on point! HOWEVER. Cheerleader cat wins best costume. LOL
We have three of EQ3’s couches in our house. They’re really decently priced, well built and you can customize the fabric/feet on any of the options. Plus there is an inexpensive five year replacement warranty on any stains that dogs/babies might leave behind! We have the Salema in fabric and leather and a Salema sectional in our bonus room. 1 year in and still love them!
Yay, 16 weeks. You look so cute. We were in FL for halloween (poor us huh?). I was a witch. I just wore a black shirt & shorts, a bat necklace & a witch hat. I added a bit more make up. We don’t have In & Out burger here, I don’t eat red meat anyway, but I think I might have been in an In & out burger before, but got a chicken sandwich maybe. Unless I’m thinking of another place that we don’t have here.
