(Read with caution. Pregnancy Posts may have T.M.I.)
How far along? 16 weeks, due May 6th (Baby is now the size of a avocado.)
Total weight gain: 3 pounds
Maternity clothes? Some days – I still wear my pre-pregnancy jeans with belly bands most of the time, although that’s getting a little annoying.
Stretch marks? Not from this pregnancy, but some faint remains from the last one
Sleep: Last night I laid awake for about three hours, trying to go back to sleep. I wasn’t hungry, and I didn’t have to pee. I wasn’t too uncomfortable, just awake. I’ve been taking a short nap during the day with the kiddos, but not this week. I just haven’t needed the nap as much, so I’ve been more productive with my time. Yay!
Not really. I’m cooking again and enjoying food more, so all is well.
Movement: Yes. The movement aren’t regular or anything, but I definitely feel little kicks and flutters.
Food cravings: During the first trimester I was craving a lot of meat, but I wasn’t eating much of it so I think my body just craved the protein it needed. I’m over that and eating normal again, but I haven’t had any other real cravings.
Anything making you queasy or sick: I’m mostly over the nausea, but there are a few smells that still bother me. When the trash can is being emptied, there is a certain “trash” smell that I guess lingers with the can that makes me gag. I also gag when I open containers of leftovers from the refrigerator or when Justin cooks his chicken. I used the love the same seasonings, but the smell is just too strong for me now.
Gender: Either a boy or a girl 😉
Name: I’ll reveal after we find out the gender.
Labor Signs: too early for all that
Belly Button: innie
Wedding Rings: On
Happy or Moody most of the time: The moods seem to be leveling out.
Looking Forward to: not having to take Zofran. I’ve had a few days where I didn’t have to, but then there are days that I do. I know within the first 5 minutes of being up if I need one or not. It makes my day go by SO MUCH SMOOTHER!
Next Appointment: December 17th
