I am 16 weeks 3 days today. The baby is the size of an avocado! At my 14 week appointment, baby's heart beat was 154.
wellllll I went to the doctor at 14 weeks and I had gained 5 pounds in 4.5 weeks!! woah nelly.... and I had a prior 3 from 6 weeks to 9 weeks..... that's 8 total! (I am not weighing myself right now). Let's just say I think the weight is going to my chest and BOOTY (seriously).
Symptoms: Nothing really crazy going on. I do get headaches occasionally. When I over do it with walking fast/cleaning my sciatica hurts real bad. I do the yoga poses to stretch it out and it helps a lot.
I have been feeling VERY well, I don't want to jinx anything, but so far so good. I had a bit of nausea weeks 7-9ish where I had to eat first thing and wait a bit before getting ready in the mornings. I got sick ONCE and that was a total fluke. I got ready for school picture day and was ironing pants (which I NEVER do- maybe that did it ) and had to run to the bathroom.
Cravings: well I didn't think I was craving things until it was brought to my attention.... apparently I love sweets now. I never really cared for them, but I like to conclude every dinner with something! :) I also really want candy? Like those sour watermelons or smarties... Now I think we can see where the pounds are coming from, oops!
Aversions: I want to be NO WHERE near Mexican, BARF (unfortunate, I know)
Gender- Well we officially find out by the doctor at the end of June when I'll be around 19 or 20 weeks. I'm also very impatient so we are going to get a sneak peek while we're in GA THIS WEEKEND!! We'll see if he/she cooperates!
James and I think boy because we can agree on a boy name and not a girl :) My sister thinks girl because I've had such an "easy" time so far compared to her... ANY GUESSES??
Maternity Clothes: My sister gave me some of her maternity stuff, but I am NOT indulging in it yet. I have definitely utilized the belly band as most of my shorts don't button! My shirts are too snug and I had a little tantrum on Saturday. I got a couple of new shirts/shorts a size up so that I could fit into something. I did buy a maternity sun dress because it was on sale at target and I like how it had plenty of material not to creep up in the back.
|They went gender neutral as we don't know what we're having yet. I really love yellow, green, and gray so it worked out!|
WOAH I almost concluded without putting a picture of myself! I've been slacking on a picture this week because I feel nothing has changed. Here is a picture from about 15 weeks (14.6 to be exact). It really pops out when I wear dresses (I'm holding it back to make my belly stand out).
