16 Weeks


Excuse the crazy hair/bathroom selfie. I tried to get Tyler to take pictures and yeah...

How far along
16 weeks 

How big is baby
4.6 inches long, 3.5 oz and the size of a dill pickle

Weight Gain/Loss 
I somehow gained 3 pounds overnight, last week. But its all for the baby!

Symptoms
Round ligament pain is no joke, neither are these headaches. Other then those two issues though I'm feeling great.

Maternity clothes
Yup! Maternity leggings are my new favorite thing.

Stretch marks 
Not yet, I'm trying to emotionally prepare myself for them though... Until then I'll keep using my lotions/oils daily.

Sleep/Mood
Sleep has sucked lately. We got a new bed about a month ago and it's been awful. Thankfully we were able to exchange it and our new tempurpedic will be delivered on Wednesday. I hated spending that much money, but in the long run I know it will be worth it.
Also I had my first pregnancy induced crying episode on Saturday night. It had been a long day and driving home from Mount Airy in the rain was wearing on my nerves (Tyler was driving) and we pulled in to our drive way and Tyler said something to me completely innocently and I lost it. He just sat and stared at me because I literally haven't cried since the day we found out we were pregnant. So this was very out of left field. And so it begins haha.

Gender
The appointment is set! November 5th is the big day! I'm still team boy, but I did have a dream last night that we found out it was a girl....

Movement
Sometimes I could swear I feel a flutter, but I'm not sure.

Best moment this week
Hearing baby's heartbeat on Friday at my doctors appointment. It was strong and in the 150's. Lower then our last appointment but I know its normal for it to fluctuate.
Also, if you know me at all you know that I'm a big Ace and TJ fan (if you're not from the Charlotte area, they are a morning show on the radio here). I usually tweet at them a few times a week and Friday it was discussed on their internet show about how I'm pregnant. I won't go in to details but it was very entertaining.

Food cravings
Hamburgers. I want a hamburger every night. Tyler bought 3 pounds of hamburger meat on Saturday so hopefully I'll be set for the week haha.

Missing anything
I just don't feel like myself which is weird. I'm not used to being exhausted all the time. I miss having the energy to do what I want.

Labor signs
Nothing yet! Praying I don't have any news on this for at least another 24 weeks.

Wedding rings on or off
On

Belly button
Its getting weirder looking. As it it wasn't weird enough to begin with. Yay surgery scar!

Nursery
I straightened up the mess last week so you can actually see the floor. I still need to move the dog's crates out of that room and in to the den so I can really start clearing out the room... I'm dreading it.

Workouts
Keeping up with the squat challenge I started! I didn't get to walk as much as I wanted last week thanks to the continued rain, and I had plans a few nights last week. We did walk around the Autumn Leaves festival all day on Saturday though and my hips are still sore because of it.
