How far along? 16 Weeks
Size of Baby: Avocado
Total weight gain/loss: According to my Dr. visit, I am down 2 lbs. from pre pregnancy
Size of Belly: 16 cm
Maternity clothes? Some off and on, I can still wear my normal jeans but my belt is now too small. I have started wearing my belly band this week.
Sleep: So every morning this week, I have been waking up with a major headache behind my eyes. My Dr. then stated that wants me to start sleeping on my side. Since then (one night so far) I did not have a headache in the morning, so hopefully it will continue that way. I just hope my side will stay comfy for a little bit!
Best moment this week: Hearing our little one’s heartbeat! A strong 152 bpm!
Miss Anything? Not this week, I’ve been doing really good!
Movement: I think I may have felt a flutter the other night, but it hasn’t happened again so I’m not sure. Still waiting and hoping it will happen soon!
Food cravings: I haven’t had any major cravings this week.
Anything making you queasy or sick: My prenatal vitamin… but that’s about it. I have even started cooking again this week! It feels good to be back in my kitchen and enjoy menu planning again!
Have you started to show yet: A small amount. It is not to the point that strangers know yet. I was even told this week “I had no idea, you don’t look it!”… not sure if that is a compliment or if I normally look this chubby 🙂 At least it was someone that doesn’t know me, she was meeting me for the first time!
Gender prediction: I am starting to think maybe boy… I don’t know why. Maybe because I really don’t want my hopes to be on a girl so I have started intentionally thinking it could be a boy and I’m becoming ok with that idea. 🙂
Labor Signs: Nope
Symptoms: Headaches, leg cramps, and constantly peeing.
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy! It has been a great week with beautiful weather! I have been outside just about every day and I am loving it!
Looking forward to: Still looking forward to kicks, but also our anatomy scan ultrasound. I scheduled it this week so I am getting more and more excited about it!
