Week 16 was pretty darn good! I wasn’t nearly as tired as I was last week, which allowed me to feel really productive both at work and at home.
How far along? 16 weeks.
Symptoms: Because of the extreme heat, I’m always thirsty and I sometimes feel faint. I have to make sure I’m drinking enough liquids to say hydrated.
Sleep: This week I ordered my Snoogle and I can’t wait for it to arrive at my house. I, however, have this sneaking suspicion that hubs will want to sleep with it. Speaking of sleep, I’m actually considering getting a California king sized bed. As my tummy is growing, I’m noticing that his is growing as well.
Total weight gain/loss: So far I’ve gained a total of 9 lbs during my pregnancy.
Maternity clothes? This past week I picked up a few new bras and a pair of really comfy flat slip on shoes I can wear on casual days at work.J. Crew | Dress: (old) Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent; similar | Necklace: Gift; similar | Shoes: (old) Merona; similar | Watch: Nixon |
Best moment this week: Being able to head to a local water park with the family. Though I wasn’t able to take part in the rides or do any swimming (for obvious reasons) I still had such an awesome time!
Worst moment of the week: Getting a little sun-burnt on my shoulders and back 😦
What I miss? Same as the previous week.
Movement: Occasional “flutters” and “bubbles” in my tummy, but I’ve mostly been feeling bloating throughout the day.
Food cravings: Calzones! Don’t know what it is about them, but they’re pretty much my obsession right now.
What’s making me sick: Not much was making me sick or queasy this week.
Have I started to show yet: Absolutely…my bump is no joke! I still get a kick out of seeing co-worker’s reaction when they realize I’m pregnant.
Gender prediction: We have officially found out our baby’s gender…WOO-HOO!!! We’re so excited, but we’ll be revealing the gender in a near future post.
Belly Button in or out? Its gone from a definite innie to almost a complete outtie.
Looking forward to: Hitting 20 weeks, picking a great name for our little one, starting to get things together for the nursery.
