Week 16- Update

{This was taken just after running 4.2 miles for Pats Run.} 

how far along? 16 weeks and 4 days

total weight gain: 4 whole pounds! According to my doctor I am right on track!

maternity clothes? I am in my least favorite part of pregnancy right now, as far as clothes go. I call it pregnancy limbo. Getting too big for many of my pre pregnancy pants, too small for maternity. Although I do have one pair of maternity skinny jeans that I wear pretty much every day. Well those and skirts/ dresses. My shirts still "fit" me but many of them are fitting me funny. Another dilema I am facing is that all the maternity clothes I had with Winston are for winter. So basically useless for this AZ summer pregnancy. I will be living in my swim suit, thank you. Um... I might need one of those too... 

stretch marks? Nope! 

sleep: Not nearly as much as I would like. 

best moment this week: Little baby flutters! Or so I think... 

miss anything? Nope! 

movement: Very faint and few and far between but something is happening in there! But it could just be gas... 

food cravings: Veggies, water, crepes, pickles, chips & salsa, anything and everything sweet. 

anything making you queasy or sick: Some meat, cleaning Winston's sippy cups, cleaning the fridge, making breakfast in the mornings...

labor signs: Nope!

symptoms: Heart burn, headaches/ migraines, on again off again morning sickness. Just when I think it's gone... so sleepy all the time and yesterday I had my first case of swollen feet after church. No more heels for me. 

belly button in or out? In

wedding rings on or off? On

happy or moody most of the time: I think I am pretty happy most of the time. But you should really ask my husband. He might have a different answer. 

looking forward to: Getting to find out what baby is on May 2nd! Which also happens to be my Birthday! I can not wait. Steven and I have differing opinions on what this baby could be... 


  1. Thanks so much for the blog comment! Your belly is adorable! At 20 weeks, I still look bloated ;)

    I feel ya on the maternity wear. I'm planning to wear dresses all summer!

    Can't wait to hear what you're having!

    I posted our reveal this morning =)


  2. Oh gosh, I just have to say that I'm so glad it's you and not me that's pregnant. I think the only thing I miss are baby's movements. I had a gas bubble move in my tummy the other day, and I was like, awwww, that feels just like when my babies were moving inside of me... :)
