Baby #2: 16 Weeks

8.08.2013

I didn't get a chance to do a 15 weeks post last week with everything going on, but I'm back on track now!

How Far Along: 16 Weeks

Size of baby: About the size of an avocado

Total Weight Gain/Loss:  +5 pounds

Maternity Clothes: I bit the bullet and bought two more pairs of maternity pants. With my last pregnancy I only wore below the belly pants and they just won't stay up this time around. So I went ahead and went for the full panel this time around. I figure they are the best because they fit now and they will grow with me. I still wear dresses a lot but they are not always practical when chasing after a two year old, so I really needed some pants. I feel SO much better wearing clothes that actually fit!

Gender: It's a baby GIRL!! We are so thrilled!

Movement: It's still not super obvious but I've felt a few thumps, mostly at night.

Symptoms: I've only been sick once in the last week! I've found that eating mints and eating something every two hours really helps keep the nausea at bay.

Remember when I said I'm finally able to drink coffee again? A few days ago I decided to try a small drink from Starbucks. It was a major mistake. After one sip, I immediately felt sick! So it looks like Starbucks is still a major no for me!

Sleep: I've had some rough nights of pretty much no sleep, but I think I'm finally getting back into better sleep. I usually pass out by 9:30 and I'm wide awake by 5:00 or 5:30 AM.  I feel pretty well rested but I do occasionally nap when Emerson does. I try not to do it every day because I usually don't feel that great after a nap.

What I miss: not feeling chubby. I know that sounds weird but I still feel like I just look like I've put on a few pounds, not like I'm pregnant. I'm ready to have a bigger belly!

Cravings:  eggs, chocolate milk, sushi (vegetarian rolls)

Best Moment This Week: Finding out that we are having a girl and seeing her little face on the ultrasound. We also chose a name that we are in love with!! I'll be sharing soon! :)

Shopping: I bought baby girl her first little sister outfit. When I saw it, I just couldn't resist. I don't plan on buying anything else until we have our anatomy scan just to *make sure* she's definitely a girl!

Love love :-) And I remember hating the "big lunch" phase...ha. I feel like I just looked like I ate a bit too much at lunch for months! I bet your uterus will stretch a bit faster this time around and you'll have a big belly before you know it!

You look precious! Coffee (and alcohol) were my two HUGE aversions, practically from day 1. Oddly enough the week we found out I was pregnant, my Starbucks gold card arrived in the mail.
