How far along: 16 weeks
Total weight gain/loss: 5 pounds
Maternity clothes: Zero so far, but thank goodness for leggings because none of my jeans fit and zero of my maternity pants fit. I am ordering a couple of basic t-shirts today. I like to have those for under shirts and they are usually just super soft, comfy, and long!!!
Stretch Marks: Just a couple left over from my last three pregnancies- I get stretch marks on my butt, inner thighs, and lower back area.
Symptoms: My belly is stretching or my uterus is growing or both. I have some stretching pains going on. Also my digestive system is just terrible. I also still have perioral dermatitis. For some reason I thought it faded with my last pregnancy. I am going to go back and check to see if I had it the whole time or if it did calm down some. Fingers crossed it does calm down. 😦 😦 😦
Best Moment: Hearing baby’s heartbeat. It had been like 5 weeks since my last doctor appointment and there is nothing better than hearing that little heartbeat. It is still hard for me to believe I am growing a little human. It is just amazing.
Miss Anything: Having an adult beverage and getting a good nights rest
Movement: I think so…. It is so hard to tell whats the baby or gas bubbles lol.
Food cravings: Chipolte always!!!
Anything making you queasy or sick: If I don’t eat often enough and certain foods don’t sit well
Have you started to show yet? My stomach and middle area are starting to thicken up- by the end of the night it starts to pop out!!!
Labor Signs: zero
Belly button in or out: In
Gender: no guess
Wedding ring on or off? Still on.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Moody still:( The sun has helped though and that usually puts me in a good mood!!!
Baby’s Heart Rate: 162 ❤ ❤
Weekly Favorites: Paleo Turtle bars, tea (also anyone have good tea recommendations- specifically to unwind at night), chips, and extra pillows in my bed to help me sleep. Debating if I want to buy a pregnancy pillow. Anyone ever tried one? Did you love it?
Looking Forward to: Kenna starts little dribblers, and all the girls start swimming lessons next week. We also have been planning a couple fun family days coming up!
