How far along: 16 Weeks.
How big is baby: The size of an avocado. Baby can hear this week, so I have been playing a lot of music.
Total weight gain: I really think I needed to gain weight before I got pregnant so I think I am finally on a healthy track of gaining. I started off at 108lbs. before I found out I was pregnant and now I am 124. 16lb. gain so far.
Maternity Clothes: Yes! I bought two pairs of jeans (which I LOVE, by the way) and a few tops. I honestly cannot fit into any of my jeans/pants anymore. Even my big girl pants that I wore years ago. The biggest size I have is a 5, and it is too small for my growing bump. I can button them, but it is just not comfortable. It’s a lot of pressure and I do not think that it is good for the babe. Everyone keeps telling me how tiny I am and how small I look and how I “don’t look pregnant”. I feel like I look pregnant. I am quite sure it is pretty obvious. There has been a lot of changes to my body so far. But maybe I am the only one to notice certain things, I guess.
Sleep: It has been hit or miss since Bobby left. I really miss him. I keep having these crazy nightmares about him and it has really started to irritate me. I am ready for him to come home. I cannot wait. I have never missed him this much. At least when I was in Florida, and in school, I was so busy with nursing school that I did not even have time to think about me and my shower for the day let alone think about someone else. So this time, it has been very difficult, especially because I am pregnant.
Best moment of the week: Hearing BS’s heartbeat again! It always makes me feel SO pregnant, again. I know that I have all the signs and symptoms of being pregnant and I am obviously expanding…but it always makes me feel so great to hear that heartbeat. A healthy 150 something.
Food Cravings: Still eating pretty good. Lots of yogurt. Egg salad sandwiches with tomato and lettuce.
Food Aversions: Nothing really. The food bar at Whole Foods sort of bothers me. I have to run the other way. But that’s about it.
Symptoms: Stuffy nose (that is out of control!), swollen legs and still lots and lots of pulling and stretching. I am feeling good.
Mood: Thankful x infinity and totally happy.
Movement: I am still feeling some fluttering, but I am not sure if it really is BS yet.
What I’m looking forward to: Bobby to come home! We find out what BS is in just 4 weeks from today! So excited!
What I miss: My husband.
