16 Weeks Belly Update

excuse the dirty mirror :x

How Far Along: 16 weeks! (as of 1-4-12).. I'm a week behind :o


Size of the Baby: An avocado!

Maternity Clothes: Still wearing my normal clothes.. although a couple of my jeans are starting to need to be unbuttoned since they're too tight!

Stretch Marks: Still none yet..luckily! but need to really start applying lotion!
Weight gain: +4lbs total. I asked the dr. at last weeks check up if it's ok that i'm not really gaining and she said since I started at just a lil overweight it's great because I don't want to gain too much..(sigh** yes i was considered overweight by like 2lbs)
Sleep: Same issues with my hips when sleeping.. I wake up more frequently to switch sides and sometimes catch that I had moved to my back and freak! I had a bad dream the other night where that rare chance where I was sleeping on my back the baby cut off the blood to my heart! SCARY!

Best Moment of the Week: Having the re-confirmation at the 3d/4d ultrasound that she is still a "SHE"!

Movement: Not yet!

Food Cravings: No cravings really.. although all that really sounds good for dinner is sourdough toast or cereal.. 

Gender: Baby Girl!

Belly Button in or out: In

Anything making you queasy or sick?: Nope, nothin

What I miss: same shit different week ;) wine of course and hot baths..of course once I am able to take hots baths again i won't be wanting to since it'll be so hot out! And the whole wine thing.. I need to do some research on that since i plan on breastfeeding.. 

What I'm looking forward to: Our 3d/4d ultra sound!(it was so much fun!) Our little girl is still too small to see all the detailed features but I'll have to share some pics later from it. And she was moving around like crazy! Bob asked " and you can't feel that?!" The woman said lil miss gets the most active baby award that she's had all week! So I can't wait 'til I can feel it all..

Nursery: We're starting on our big projects this weekend so hopefully soon we can start on the nursery! I do need to start on the bedding though!

Emotions: Better.. not as irritable. I think trying not to worry about so many unnecessary things helped..

Congrats on your baby girl! That's so exciting :)

I'd miss the wine too, that's for sure.

I'm so glad you got to see your little girl, even if it was too fuzzy to see features! What an amazing moment!
