Finally Friday! I love Friday’s because they start the weekend and I switch weeks for pregnancy.  I finally felt like myself this week, I mean for the most part.  My energy is coming back which leads me to believe I can do like 500 things during the day which in turn leads to the couch at 8:00 p.m. and feeling awful.  I will defiantly need to balance that out.  I can’t be a machine while I am pregnant. Lesson learned.
I also started TRYING to potty train Jovie this week. Lord help me. She just LOVES to be on the potty. Throw stuff in the potty, tear up toilet paper while she is on the potty, turn on the sink and then I can’t get her off the potty.   She seems to do a great job with number 2, but is having a hard time figuring out when she has to go number 1 for sure. I pray for patience and energy so I can keep consistent with her and get her diaper free!!! Ps. I will take all the tips and tricks you have!!!! THANK YOU
As for pregnancy, things are going well.  I totally feel pregnant- lol, tired, moody, hungry, full, wanting food that we don’t have, impatient, all the wonderful things that go with crazy hormones when you are pregnant.  I had my 16 week check up today and everything went great. I got to hear the little heartbeat and then I scheduled my ultrasound. I can’t believe the next time I go to the doctor I will be over half way done. This is by far the fastest pregnancy.  I am so thankful for this experience and just trying to soak it all in.

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!
