16 weeks

How far along? 16 weeks

How big is the baby?
Avocado size…although the navel oranges (last weeks size) are bigger than avocados at the grocery stores I shop at

Total weight gain/loss?
I am up about 7 lbs and i wake up with a baby bump now which expands in size throughout the day

Maternity clothes?
Still switching between maternity jeans, yoga pants and a various assortment of tops

Sleep?
Fantastic. I’ve been using my Boppy Pillow the last few nights and its really comfortable. I still tend to toss and turn during the night, so maybe 30% of the night I am using the Boppy Pillow… and during that 30% of the night its fantastic!

Best moment this week?
Lifting weights this morning. I feel so much more coordinated when I’m doing regular strength training. I’ll write more on my opinions regarding exercise and pregnancy in another post.

Symptoms?
So hungry and so thirsty. I sometimes feel like having a nap in the middle of the day ( on weekends of course) but I just wont allow it! When I nap during the day, I wake up feeling like someone siphoned all the fluids from my body but if I try to drink too much water at once to replenish before I shrivel up into nothingness, I feel like I’m going to vomit. So at least for now, naps in the middle of the day= way too dangerous.

Food cravings?
Nothing new since last week. I still just want food. Lots of it. Pasta, tomatoes, tea, cereal, fruits, apples, pineapple, fruits and things like that.

Food aversions?
I continue to boycott salmon, perogies, and green beans. I don’t know if they would make me gag anymore but I just don’t want them!

Movement?
Nothing yet, but I know it’s coming and I’m excited!

Purchases?
I haven’t purchased anything this week but my husband picked up a grey long sleeve shirt with guitars on it, and my sister got a grey Batman sweater with khaki pants for the baby. Boy or girl, this baby is wearing Batman and guitars!

What I miss?
Nothing. I am having a pretty good pregnancy so far!

What I’m looking forward to?
Swimming! Awww yeeeaaaa. I am so excited for summer to come and I can go swimming outside in the sun! Don’t know what bathing suit I’m going to wear yet but thats irrelevant. There will be swimming!
