Baby Wilson: Week 16

How far along? 16 weeks
Baby’s size/development this week: approx 4 ounces and about the size of an avocado
Maternity clothes: wearing them? yes. I’ve just started to get a few pieces here and there… work pants have been my main gripe! Thankfully I have a few pieces to get me through the next month or so.
Miss anything? Craft beer
Food cravings? Bacon egg and cheese biscuits. I still haven’t gotten the one I was craving last week. I forgot to make one over the weekend.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Cigarette smoke, but that was a thing before I was pregnant
Sleep: I’m no longer able to sleep comfortably on my back. I can feel the weight of the babe pressing down and it is very uncomfortable. I am not a side sleeper so I haven’t been sleeping well lately. I want to get one of those “pregnancy pillows” or just a body pillow to make this whole sleeping thing a bit easier.
Best moment of the week: Finishing my 7th Shamrock Shuffle, complete with mini baby bump!
Nursery: I’m still working on the closet project but I made some headway this weekend. Of of the clothes that were hanging in the guest closet are now in my normal closet. Next up, I have to tackle the shoes project.
Wedding rings on or off? on
Movement? I have been feeling gas bubbles that may or may not be the baby. Lol. I’m excited to start feeling movement in the next few weeks!
Weird pregnancy thing of the week: My skin is soooo dry! Although, we’re starting to get some rain this week so hopefully that will help with the dryness.
Daddy is feeling: Excited in general about being a dad.
Mommy is feeling: Nervous all the time. I haven’t had a doctor’s visit since 13 weeks. I haven’t felt any movement or seen an ultrasound so there is just some anxiety over everything being okay. I have an appointment on Thursday that will put me more at ease… (I hope)
Workouts this week: More than I would have thought. Walked a ton and got in some running, including two group runs and a race!
Looking forward to: Our ultrasound next week!


  1. I LOVE these updates! Iddy biddy baby wilson!!

  2. I'm so thrilled for you! I craved eggs all the time with the twins!!! I want eggs now even.:) Yum. Any time I was around someone smoking when I was pregnant I felt even more annoyed by it than usual. Like, quit trying to poison my fetus, people!

  3. Aw thanks! These updates will be coming weekly now! Get ready for more bump photos! ;)

  4. Thanks so much! My cravings seem to be changing weekly. I never know what the next craving will be!

    Haha, I love that.. "quit trying to poison my fetus." I usually end up muttering "Ugh, so rude!?" not really under my breath. I am always coughing really dramatically too when someone exhales their smoke in my face (accidentally I imagine, but still). I have never been a smoker so I just don't get it. It really grosses me out in so many ways. Glad I'm not the only one!

  5. You look adorable! So glad things are going well!

  6. I love that photo of you, baby Wilson and the avocado for size comparison! Too cute! Keep the updates coming! :)

  7. How exciting! Hope you'll be able to sleep soundly soon.

  8. Thanks! I had some avocados on hand (we usually do) so I just HAD to do the match up! :)

  9. You look great! Sending prayers!

  10. TEAM BABY WILSON!!! I love these updates :)

  11. Thanks! I'm going to be doing these every week... Get pumped! Lol

  12. Thanks! I heard the heartbeat yesterday! (I bumped up my appointment.) Thanks so much!

  13. Love the avocado pic! I am also excited to see what projects are you working on for Nugget!

    I hope you get that pillow so you can start to sleep better :)

  14. yeah.. the "nursery" is still a complete disaster. I should probably take a "before" picture now. haha.
