*** I haven't been so good about posting updates lately since things have been so hectic. However this is such an important and much anticipated part of our lives that I don't want to slack off any longer. We are so excited about this miracle growing in my belly and I want to be able to look back and remember all of those special little things from week to week!***
How far along: 16 weeks and 6 days today
How big is baby: about the size of an onion according to the little pregnancy calendar on THE BUMP.
Weight gain: mmmm....about 7 or 8 lbs. I lost a pound the last appt we had, but I'm sure I gained it all back plus some this past week. I'm definitely getting bigger.
Maternity Clothes: I can't really fit into any of my pre-pregnancy pants anymore at this point. The bump has grown quite a bit. If I keep them totally unbuttoned I can still SQUEEZE into them ;0) I think I need to invest in one of those belly bands. I have some maternity pants, but most of them are still a bit big on me. I bought a pair of shorts that fit and I have one pair of capri's and one pair of pants that fit pretty well.
Sleep: Not so great, to tell you the truth. I have to get up to pee a couple times a night sometimes 3 times a night. I'm usually nauseous all afternoon, evening and night so by bedtime I'm uncomfortable and achy and it makes it hard to fall/stay asleep.
Best moment this week: Probably... thinking I'm feeling baby move. I can't be sure...but it sure feels like it. Within a couple weeks it should be pretty obvious whether or not its baby. Of course also when Josh sees the bump and tells me how cute I look! He melts my heart!
Food I love: Orange juice! Veggie Bacon!
Food I hate: I still can't eat/smell garlic with out feeling sick. Meat (not that I ate it before) has a smell that makes me sick. It's much harder these days to cook it.
Movement: Like I said, I keep thinking I feel something...but it's hard to tell for sure.
Gender: So far the tech thought it was a boy, but we won't know for sure until the 30th when we go for the official anatomy ultrasound. I've been told it's easy to mistake a littl girl for a little boy because of the umbilical cord. Either way, makes no difference to us. It's just not knowing that drives me crazy! 21 days until we know for sure! :0)
Belly Button: Is totally changing! I'll have an outie before I know it!
Morning Sickness: Yup, still got it...although now it's turned into all afternoon, evening and night sickness. What can you do...it's all part of it. I'd rather deal with it than not be preggo....bring it on!
