Sweet 16!


How far along? 16 weeks, 5 days

How big is baby? Size of an avocado!

Maternity clothes? Elastic waistbands almost every day my friends! They are magical. Still able to wear my normal jeans, but I'm going to be pulling out a hair tie to fasten them pretty soon. They're getting TIGHT! Flowy shirts and sweaters are my best friends!

Stretch marks? Hoping to avoid them as much as possible!

Sleep? Funny story. I never sleep on my back- I've always been a belly sleeper. However, I move a TON in my sleep so it's not uncommon for me to wake up on my back. A couple of nights ago, I woke up flat on my back and realized that my left leg was completely numb! I couldn't even fling it over my other leg to flip over! Hearing about pregnancy symptoms and actually experiencing them is a whole new ballgame! It was definitely a strange and funny moment! Oh, and still waking up to pee all night long. :)

Best moment last week? Got to go to the doctor again and hear that little baby thunder! 150 BPM and right on track. Love that sound more than anything!

Movement? Ladies and gentlemen... we have a kicker!!! I'm LOVING that I can feel the little one kicking around in there- I wasn't sure if I'd be able to this early. If I lay flat on my back and put my hand on my belly, sometimes I get lucky enough to feel a few of those perfect little flutters! It is the. craziest. feeling in the world! There is REALLY something alive in there! I'm already a mean momma... the last few nights right before bed, I keep poking my belly to wake the baby up so I can have a kick or two hello before I go to bed. I even woke Trevor up at 2 in the morning last night so he could feel a couple of the teeniest kicks in the world! 

Food cravings? Soup. I'm LOVING the hot comfort food these days! Also frozen strawberry lemonade, which is basically the opposite of hot comfort food. Don't ask me to try to explain any rhyme or reason to these cravings... it just won't happen.

Food aversions? Not everything anymore! It's a miracle to not be waking up feeling CRAZY sick every morning! Don't get me wrong... the sickness isn't over. But it's getting noticeably better and that's been a welcome development!

Gender? Still guessing a girl, even though everyone else says boy. What do you think?? We find out November 6th!

Labor signs? Far too early for that!

Belly button in/out? In but shaped funny! It's getting really shallow because my belly is rock hard full of BABY!

What I miss: This answer will be exactly the same every time I do this survey: I miss zero things about not being pregnant. Any day of headaches and puking and exhaustion is better than a day of feeling great and not being able to get this baby on the way!

What I am looking forward to: Still waiting for that amazing pregnancy hair and skin glow to kick in... :)

Milestones: So far, the kicks are the most exciting!
