You're about to go through a growth spurt! I've finally passed the terrified time of pregnancy, and entered the super excited stage. 16 weeks...we've made it for 4 months. Congrats little one.
How Far Along: 16 weeks, 5 days
Size of baby: An avocado. Aaron and I decided that this week would be a good week for guacamole!
Gender: Guesses? Most seem to be for a boy, but I'm still holding out for a girl (sorry babe if you are a boy, I'll still love you!)
Movement: I had fun laying very still, then poking my belly and seeing if I felt anything.
How I'm Changing: I'm feeling/looking more pregnant.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: ~15lbs
Maternity Clothes: FINALLY. My friend dragged me to a maternity store yesterday, and I bought some jeans (*yey*), and like 4-5 shirts. I like that the shirts are so much longer, because my t-shirts and such are getting too short.
How I'm Feeling: not bad. I am more in tuned with my body lately, realizing exactly when I get super tired, or have a headache because I haven't drank enough water. I'm also feeling more at peace with gaining weight, since I'm able to move more, and feel more in control.
Sleep: I love sleep:)
What I miss: not being so sloooooooww. I walk more slowly, wake more slowly, work more slowly. I just feel so slow.
What I'm Eating: Everything!
Cravings: currently...fruit loops.
Best Moment this week: Probably buying maternity clothing with my fabulous friend.
And...because I finally got around to it, here is a picture...where I think I actually look pregnant.
|Hello awkward bathroom shot!|
My awesome maternity shirt says 'geek inside' and can be found on Think Geek. Dad claims that my being pregnant makes him want to buy me presents, and since I really like presents, I'm not protesting. He bought me this shirt when I was 5 weeks pregnant though. I waited awhile to wear them. Now I love them both.
p.s. 20 days until we find out if you're a boy or a girl. I can't wait, but I really need to think of a fun, creative, way to tell the world. Dad doesn't seem to care much. He is thinking of everything that comes after you're born. I'm living in the moment though:).
