I’m 16 weeks pregnant and sharing my bump update!
How far along: 16 weeks 4 days
Gender: It’s a Girl!!!!
Baby Size: Avocado.
Total weight gain: Weigh-in is Thursday. I’m guessing 3-5lbs.
Clothes: Added some bigger bras and undies to the wardrobe, plus some non-maternity spring shirts and cardigans.
Sleep: Why do I wake SO early? I would love a midday nap but it never can/will happen.
Cravings/Aversions: Fresh fruit, cereal, candy, Italian food. Still hating shrimps.
Symptoms: I wake up feeling pretty great… my breasts are usually a little sore from sleeping on my stomach though. By late afternoon, I have a lot going on: lower back/tailbone pain, vulvar varicose vein is throbbing, dry metallic mouth, bloated belly, gas, and crankiness. I am still breaking out in weird pimples on my chest and back, my skin is far from glowing (try red and blotchy), and my lady parts feel bruised. It’s so strange how a lot of the aches and pains I felt with Annabelle towards the third trimester have snuck up on me so early in this pregnancy. Super Hero Sense of Smell- oh boy it is in full affect these days! I can’t stand it!
Exercise: I am shooting for Flywheel twice a week now and one other kind of workout in-between. Last week it was a very long walk in the neighborhood!
Mood: I should change my name to Moody Judy. Wondering where the nastiness is coming from because I have been quite the B more than a few times to some undeserving people in the last week. Little things are irritating me and I’m annoying myself.
Loving: Annabelle’s love for her new sister is incredible. She kisses my belly, talks to the baby, and likes to lay her head on my bare stomach. I am in no rush for Baby H 2.0 to get here, but when she does, it will be adorable to see Annabelle’s reaction.
Best Moment this Week: Pushing through my pregnancy pains and checking EVERYTHING I wanted to do off of my To Do List over the weekend. I meal prepped Sunday enough food for breakfast, lunch, dinner AND snacks for not just me, but Brandon and Annabelle too!
Check out: Pregnant with Annabelle at 16 weeks – it’s official – I am bigger this time around.
