16 Weeks Pregnant

16 Weeks Pregnant 1

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.

  1. I hope your blaring out REO, and BRIAN ADAMS, and PHIL COLLINS and all our favorites so she’s prepared to dance and sing along with her momma, aunt Rachel and gramma…. Just sayin

    1. It’s been hard to blare REO…because it just makes me sad more than anything because I miss you and Rach and I miss Bobby. I have been playing music like piano and stuff…to get the tunes going. The words will come soon. Love you.

  2. Oh, I have bump envy! Somehow, I actually feel like my bump has gotten smaller this week…not sure how that is possible. Anyway, you are so brave to still be apart. Glad you have your new job 🙂 you look more and more beautiful! Love being bump buddies 🙂

    1. Aww Lauren…you will get there. I never thought I’d get there either. It’s crazy how fast it happened and how time is flying. Thank you for your kind words. You are such a sweetheart. xoxo I look forward to your next post. 🙂

  3. I love love love the new picture and you are most definitely pregnant. I can’t wait to come see you and BS AND bobby in February and then again when my grand baby makes his or her presence. You make me the proudest of parents. I wouldn’t miss a minute of any of this. Just wish you were closer. Xoxo
