Baby M – 16 Weeks

16 weeks

Bump Analysis? I went from barely having a bump to looking 6 months pregnant over night… or at least that’s how it feels.

Trimester? 2nd Trimester

Fruit of the week? Our baby is the size of an avocado! 4.6 inches long and 3.5 ounces!

Development? Baby M has little bones forming in their ears that allows them to hear my voice now!  The baby is also growing lashes, hair, eyebrows, and their taste buds are forming!

Movement?  I swear I’ve felt some flutters, but I can’t be sure if it is actually baby I feel…Still waiting to know for sure 🙂

Names? Our boy name is set in stone, and Paul is 100% with the girl name, and I think we’re about 90% on the girls name!  January 8th we find out if we’re having a little boy or girl, and maybe that will help us decide!

Testing? The results for the NT exam came back great, so that is amazing news 🙂

Weight Gain? 3 lbs as of this morning – but that bump looks like a lot more than 3 lbs.

Symptoms?  Still having some headaches and dizzy spells.  Paul doesn’t even ask anymore when I grab onto him and try to steady myself.

Cravings? Not really craving anything – the other day I wanted a donut.  Does that count?

Aversions? Still not feeling the poultry.  The smell of BBQ is terrible.  I want nothing to do with it, and I’m pretty sure I’ll never eat buffalo chicken dip again.

Sleep?  I fall asleep on my stomach every night, but I wake up multiple times throughout the night on my back.  I think my body is letting me know that stomach sleeping won’t last much longer, and then I’m pretty sure I’ll never sleep again.

Maternity Clothes? Still wearing all my normal clothes, but I did bust out my belly band this week so my shorts were more comfortable.  I also washed the entire bag of maternity clothes my sister gave me to get them ready.  I’m sure I’ll be busting them out soon!

What I miss? Every night I put oil on before I go to bed to help with stretch marks and itchy skin.  I miss going to bed without being oily, but I guess I still have a long time before that happens right?

Looking forward to?  That big game on January 1st between our Noles and the Oregon Ducks… Time to go duck hunting!!! 🙂 Go NOLES!
