I've decided that I am going to start answering the standard pregnancy questions once a week. I think it will be interesting to go back and look at everything after Baby has joined us. Since Sunday is one of my only days off of work, I think I will aim to post then. My baby growing weeks don't actually change until Tuesdays, so I will always be two days before a new week on the journal, but that's okay with me. I will also try to post a pic of the bump!
How far along? 16 Weeks and 5 days
Baby Size: Baby is the about the size of an onion. Should be around 5 inches long and weighing in at almost 6 ounces.
Total weight gain/loss: Still down 13 pounds, which means I have gained 3 from my lowest!
Maternity clothes? A great friend donated a bunch of her old maternity clothes to this baby growing endeavor, but it is so hot here in AR and most of the clothes are for the fall, so I haven’t tested them out yet! So thankful for them though!
Stretch marks? Not yet! Baby is barely showing, so not much stretching going on!
Sleep: Some days I sleep well, others not so much. Back and tummy sleeping are out of the question, but which ever hip I am laying on starts to hurt so I end up rolling back and forth all night.
Best moment this week: Not throwing up since Tuesday morning before my ER trip. The small victories in life…
Miss Anything? Eating whatever I want. Some things I used to love I just couldn’t fathom eating anymore!
Movement: Still nothing….I think. Thought I felt some movement during yoga the other day….and thought I felt some this morning but I’m just not sure!
Food cravings: Waffles with honey. And grapefruit….but the last time I tried grapefruit…well I’ll save you the details but I’m staying away for now.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not since the ER trip on Tuesday. Cross your fingers.
Have you started to show yet: There is a bit of a bump there! To me I just look kind of chubby, but that bump certainly isn’t squishy.
Gender: Won’t know for a few more weeks
Labor Signs: Had some cramping, but that was due to low potassium. I’ve been upping my banana and orange juice intake since Tuesday and I’ve had less cramping.
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On. Except I’m wearing it less at work because the alcohol gel we use has an odor that stays on my ring and bugs me.
Mood? Not sure this morning. Didn’t get a ton of sleep last night, so I’m kind of crabby. In general my mood has been better than previous weeks.
Looking forward to: Getting all the plans in place for the nursery and finding out gender!
