How Far Along: 16 weeks
How Big is Baby: An avocado. 4-5 inches, 3.5 ounces
Weight Gained: 1 lb
Maternity Clothes: Still half and half. I’m squeezing as much life out of my non-maternity leggings as possible… full belly panels are really pretty awful.
Sleep: To Matt’s dismay, I broke out the maternity body pillow this week. The good news is, he might actually get some of the covers back now that I’m not balling them up to shove between my knees.
Best Moments of the Week: Treasure hunting with Mum and finding two super cute maternity tops. Lucy’s haircut (she’s back to the short bob) with Mel. A last minute Twins game with Matt on Saturday. A super quick proofing session on Sunday, AND turning the client’s finished images around to her on the same afternoon!
Cravings: Still on a steak kick. Grapefruit. Asparagus. And Papa Murphy’s… which “might” have caused a hormonal Honey Bee Ice Cream-esque melt-down last night.
Aversions: Most meat. Pork, chicken, ground beef…
Labor signs: None.
Symptoms: BABY KICKS this morning!! That first definite “that was the baby moving” moment is still by far one the most amazing things in life!
I was really hopeful that this pregnancy would be different and that “morning” sickness would actually start to taper off at some point. Unfortunately I don’t think I’m that lucky based on the last couple of weeks.
What Do I Miss: Not feeling crummy + tired 24/7.
How I’m Feeling: See the above… nauseous, tired, generally just pretty blah. I thought pregnancy with one toddler was bad… I wish I could go back two years and tell myself how easy I had it!
