16 Weeks


Maternity clothes? Finding myself needing to rubber band more and more pairs of pants. I don’t have hardly any pairs of maternity pants so I may need to think about getting some soon. 

Stretch marks? Nope! Let’s keep it that way!

Sleep: Sleeping very hard and waking up sore. Many nights I have trouble getting comfortable before I fall asleep. 

Best moment this week: We had a doctors appointment and got to hear our sweet baby’s strong and healthy heartbeat! It was the best sound ever and really made the reality of things set in. We are going to have a precious little one in our lives in just 5 months! 

Miss anything? Not being winded when I exert even small amounts of energy. 
Food cravings: Nothing really this week. I have been snacking a lot lately and have consumed a lot of cheez-its, but I always love cheez-its. 
Anything making you queasy or sick? Nothing lately. 

Gender: Still going to hold strong until February! 

Symptoms: Allergies are still going crazy, mild joint pain in the mornings. 
I don’t know where I thought I heard that the need to pee all the time goes away for a while… cause it sure as heck DOES NOT! I feel like I spend 50% of my day peeing or needing to so bad I am about to burst. No fun!

Happy or moody most of the time: Still very happy! Growing a baby is exciting! 

Looking forward to: Our next “anatomy” ultrasound in a few weeks. Quotations around the anatomy part because we won’t be finding that out. We will get to see that all of baby’s organs and other important parts are developing right. Lots of prayers that things go well!

Hows Dad doing? The Hubs LOVED hearing the heartbeat (he imitated it for a few hours after the appointment). I also informed him that my pregnancy app said baby can detect light through my tummy now. Naturally he whipped out his phone, turned on the flashlight and put on a little light show for our peanut! So cute!
