Pregnancy Update: 16 Weeks


16w. ATROCIOUS picture sans makeup because I was feeling like CRUD!

How far along? 16 weeks (I do these a week behind as a recap of the previous week, so I'm actually 17 weeks today.)

Total weight gain/loss: +1.4 lbs so I'm 118.4 lbs. For someone who eats the same thing every dang day (for the past three and a half months), I'm surprised I've consistently gone up in weight. I saw my OBGYN on Friday, and she reassured me that the speedy increase in weight was perfectly fine. I'm sure I'll plateau sooner or later- I always do!

Maternity clothes: Yes! Since I've popped, regular pants have been seriously uncomfortable. I basically live in yoga pants, tights and my maternity pants. It's crazy!

Stretch marks? None yet...

Sleep: Initially falling asleep isn't so bad... it's falling back asleep that's the problem!

Best moment this week: Hearing Lamby's heartbeat!! It's so strong!!

Worst moment of the week: It's not really a low point, but it's the worst overall- I guess. Crissy and I babysat his nieces and nephew for the long weekend. I was the main caregiver since Crissy was busy for the majority of the morning and afternoon. I juggled three kids under ten- even one learning how to go to the potty. By the end of the night, my whole body was aching sore and I pulled my left arm (which was already tender from the damn flu shot)!! I hate being sore (when it's not because of working out)!!

Miss anything? Sleeping on my tummy!

Movement: Here and there I feel tiny kicks like I did at my NT ultrasound

Food cravings: NOPE! On that note, for the past couple of weeks, I've been able to eat anything I want- meat included. Cristhian thought that meant I would eat as I normally do, well, sorry buddy! I eat what I want and don't what I don't! I eat 95% vegetarian and 5% meat... every other day.

Anything making you queasy or sick: No, sir!

Have you started to show yet: YESSSS! It's insane how large and in charger my uterus has grown and stretched!

Gender Prediciton: The anatomy scan is next week!

Labor signs: Nope!

Symptoms: My tummy is getting hairier and hairier... YUCK! Plus, I've noticed this since I was 8w (I thought it would've gone away ages ago! Argh!), I've gotten tiny bumps on my forehead. I haven't had zits on my forehead since I was 10. What. The. Hell. Also, my areolas are definitely larger than they once were.

Belly button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or moody most of the time? Neutral, but I did go through a day and a half of the pregnancy blues. Yuck!

Looking forward to: Anatomy scan!
