How Far Along: 16 weeks
Size of baby: The baby is the size of an avocado. It is measuring 4.5 inches and weighs 2.5 ounces.
Weight Gain: 3.5 pounds.
Maternity Clothes: I am wearing maternity pants. I am kind of frustrated with my clothes situation right now. My maternity pants are too big and my regular pants won't button. I refuse to buy any new pants because I will outgrow them soon and because I have so many maternity clothes already. I have been wearing my leggings and tunics a lot.
Gender: We are not going to find out! I love a surprise!
Movement: This morning I felt like I felt some little tiny kicks but it could have been gas. I felt Lucy at 18-19 weeks.
Food Cravings/Aversions: Peanut Butter, Jelly and Banana Sandwiches. It's all I want to eat!
What I miss: I'm really just excited to be pregnant! If I had to pick something I would say I miss wine.
Sleep: I have been sleeping well. I only get up once during the night to go to the bathroom. I would sleep better if I didn't wake up to a little Joker face smiling at me (Lucy) and asking me for Cheese, a drink of water, or to come lay with her.
Symptoms: Last week I bragged that I had not taken my zofran for 3 days. Well my evening sickness is back! Maybe it never went away. I told my doctor this and he said, "oh try to keep a full stomach." I said, "You told me it would be gone by now." He replied, "Some people are sick through the 2nd and 3rd trimester!"
Best Moment of the Week: My monthly doctors appointment! I hate going to the doctor but I love going to my obgyn! We got to hear the baby's heartbeat again and it was 160.
What I look forward to: Christmas. Our Sunday School Christmas Party and our Bible Study cookie exchange next week. My parents are coming into town next weekend too.
