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!
