Weekly Update- 16 weeks


Size of baby: Avocado- In the next few weeks the baby will double his weight and add inches to his length.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: Still up at 6 pounds, seem to be holding steady despite the bump getting bigger. 

Maternity Clothes: Wearing the belly band daily with my pants, most of my tops still fit but getting snug.  

Sex: Another boy! 

Movement: Pretty sure I've been feeling pretty consistent movement daily, feel like little taps. Kristian insists he's felt a few taps from the outside as well though it seems early for that. 

What I miss: having more energy, still pretty wiped out in the evenings. I don't feel like my energy has really come back yet from the first trimester. 

Sleep: fall asleep great but wake up several times to pee.

Symptoms: feeling some movement, belly is really showing and my belly button is starting to pop out! Still some off and on nausea. 

Cravings: fruit, ice cream, anything sweet really.

Best Moment this week:  Feeling more movement. Celebrating Easter with our family, last one as a family of 3!

What I am looking forward to: our anatomy scan in a few weeks and getting visual confirmation of boy parts.

Weekly Update- 15 weeks


Size of baby: Apple- He is forming taste buds and can sense light

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I weighed myself at the gym in my office building and I'm up about 5-6 pounds total. I feel like I've gained a lot more though. I've been getting better about working out at least 3 times a week during lunch at the gym so hopefully that will help with the weight gain. 

Maternity Clothes: Wearing the belly band daily but still in regular pants and tops for now. 

Sex: Another boy! 

Movement: Pretty sure I felt my first little punch the other day driving home from work. Felt like a definitely little tap right around where he is hanging out. 

What I miss: nothing really, though I really thought by now the nausea would have totally disappeared and it's still lingering. 

Sleep: fall asleep great but wake up several times to pee.

Symptoms: still a bit nauseous which is annoying, getting worn out much quicker and the belly has really popped!

Cravings: mainly fruit especially citrus

Best Moment this week:  Feeling what I'm pretty sue was a kick.

What I am looking forward to: cleaning out the office/nursery and starting a registry, not so much for gifts, but to keep me organized on what I need to buy.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: About 5 pounds total

Maternity Clothes: Finally broke out the belly band to make some of pants more comfortable. 

Sex: Another boy! 

Movement: Nothing definitive.  

What I miss: not much, feel fairly normal just with a slightly bigger belly.

Sleep: fall asleep great but wake up several times to pee.

Symptoms: nothing new, bad skin, a little nausea, tired

Cravings: still fruit, also cereal and french fries

Best Moment this week:  Another doctor appointment, heartbeat was 157 and doc said my belly is already measuring 2 weeks ahead but likely due to being petite and showing quickly.

Weekly Update- 13 Weeks

**I'm a week behind in posting, I actually am 14 weeks today.

Size of baby: The length of a peapod- fingerprints have formed on the fingers and veins and organs are visible through the skin.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: Around 4 pounds but will find out at my next appointment

Maternity Clothes: None yet but my pants are starting to get tight.

Movement: Not sure if I'm feeling him or gas bubbles, likely gas bubbles though Kristian insists he felt him this weekend, I think he's crazy. 

What I miss: nothing

Sleep: I fall asleep on the couch every night around 9pm. Pretty much impossible to stay awake later than that but then I toss and turn all night.
Symptoms: Lots of skin breakouts. Still a little nauseous at night. Bigger boobs and tummy is definitely growing. 

Cravings: Lots of fruit still. Other than that I don't really crave anything specific. 

Best Moment this week:  Went to a large consignment sale and bought two bouncy seat things and some clothes which was fun. 

What I am looking forward to: 14 week checkup and hopefully feeling better now that I'm moving into the 2nd trimester.
