16 Week Bumpdate

Week 16 bump

Week 16 bump

How Far Along?: 16.3 Weeks

Baby is the size of: An avocado!

Total Weight Gain: +8lbs

Maternity Clothes? Yes, invested in AG maternity jeans and loving them! Still in regular shirts but they are looking a little silly.

Stretch Marks? Nope.

Sleep? Pretty good.

Best Moment This Week? A quiet, happy moment of anticipation in our future nursery, a room that has been an empty, sad reminder for the past few years.

Movement?: I felt a little kick last night! Certain times of day I feel a bunch of tiny movements.

Food Cravings?: Lemon anything, salads, really just food in general!

Anything making you queasy?: When I bend over I still get a little queasy, but happy to say that no food or other smells are causing any dry heaving anymore.

Baby Bump?: Yes, it feel like my belly is just growing outward in all directions. Hoping this bump will start to take some shape soon so I don’t just look large and in charge.

Gender Prediction?: I think boy, hubby thinks girl. I’m getting so excited to get to know this little one!

Labor Signs?: No. I have been experiencing Braxton Hicks contractions 2-4 times per day. My doctor said this is normal and isn’t a concern unless they are happening regularly (4-6X an hour). A little concerning but trying not to stress about it.

Belly Button In or Out?: In but stretching out. It is weird to be able to see in there!

Wedding Rings on or off?: On.

Happy or Moody?: Happy! I have noticed this week that my hormones are back in full swing and I get emotional very easy, similar to how I felt during much of the first trimester.

Miss Anything?: I would love an Italian sub and a margarita (not necessarily together!)

Looking forward to?: Anatomy scan in 2.5 weeks, getting started on the nursery and registry once I know who this little one is!
