16 Weeks

I don't know if it's my pregnancy brain or what but I couldn't figure out when is the best time to post an update. I like waiting to post the update after the week is over. If that makes sense?. So usually when I post an update, I'm already in the next week. So today I'm actually 17 weeks. 
Also, if I write something and it doesn't make much sense or there's spelling errors. I apologize in advance, I try to proof read my posts. But I defiantly don't always catch things right now. 

16 Weeks!
Baby is the size of a dill pickle!
This week pretty much felt like last week. But realizing I'm so close to the halfway mark is really exciting. 

If you think I look exhausted, well I am. I've been really exhausted all please ignore my sleepy eyes ;) 

How far along? 16 Weeks 

Total weight gain: Unsure. I haven't been keeping track. 

Maternity clothes? Still using my belly bands when I wear jeans. I bought a maternity dress from Target...amazing. I am finding that I'm beginning to not like how my normal clothes fit.

Stretch marks? Nope, I use lotion morning and night.

Sleep: A little better. Some nights I only wake up a few times, other times I'm tossing and turning.

Best moment of this week: Getting to hear baby's heartbeat at the doctors today! 

Miss anything? My energy...I'm really waiting for all the second trimester is suppose to promise.  

Movement: I may be crazy, and you can tell me I am. But you aren't me so anyways. I SWEAR I have felt little things here and there. And it's always in the same spot. 

Food cravings:  Milk and bagels with cream cheese. I also find myself really enjoying pizza and pastas. I don't really have any other cravings right now. My appetite still isn't fully back, but I'm more hungry.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Not eating right away. I also got super sick off of Chinese food. It wasn't the food because Caleb didn't sick. But I guess baby doesn't like Chinese right now. Still really hating meat...I've tried it a few times but felt pretty queasy afterwards. And those darn avocados. I don't even dare to try to eat them. 

Gender Guesses: Not sure. But I have my guesses! And I'm SO curious to see if I have any sort of instinct. 

Labor signs: No way!

Symptoms: Morning sickness..actually for me it's night sickness. Still pretty exhausted. And I've been having heartburn almost daily. 

Belly button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or moody most of the time: Mood swings to the extreme. I try not to act like I'm in a bad mood...but I can't help it! It's so weird. I also find that I really don't feel like being social right now. 

Looking forward to: MAY 22ND!! We find out the gender. It's only three weeks away. I'm planning on a gender reveal for our family and close friends. So I'm hoping that keeps me busy and time flies by.
