16 Weeks

How Far Along: 16 Weeks

Baby’s the size of: An avocado
Total Weight Gain: I’m not looking. :)
Best Moment this week: Andy and I had a kid-free weekend, practically. Starting Saturday night. We went out to dinner and then to a piano bar. Sunday morning, we moseyed out the door to church and got to eat at one of our favorite places for lunch. So awesome – many thanks to Brian and Michelle for hosting a sleepover for the cousins at their house!
Maternity Clothes: Most definitely. Dresses are the bomb-diggity. Don’t know if people still say that, but well… there it is.
Gender: Final word July 24.
Movement: Baby gave me a good strong kick yesterday. Made me smile.
Sleep: Eh. Dependent on whether I wake up in the middle of the night to pee. If not, I sleep great. Otherwise, I am annoyed and bothered – but mostly because I lie there too long trying to ignore it and fall back asleep (which never happens.)
Cravings: Been really thirsty lately, does that count?
Symptoms: Kinda same old, same old. Frequent peeing, get sleepier earlier in the evening, unignorable hunger pangs at about 10:30 and 3:30.
What I miss: Not what I used to do, per se, but what I’m regretting not doing now. Andy started running a couple of weeks ago, and that training would’ve been so fun to start together. Even if we couldn’t log miles together, we could encourage each other to get out the door and make progress on our own time. But alas, starting a runner’s training program isn’t something they recommend during pregnancy. Especially not into the second trimester. (Still, very proud of my husband!)
What I’m looking forward to: I’ve got a half day this Friday with nothing on the books. I need to a.) get out shopping for some maternity items – this and that and b.) get cracking on Graham’s big boy room. I watched him crawl out of his crib on his own this morning!

Here’s a belly shot – I look smaller compared to last week. Call me crazy, but I started doing some pregnancy workout videos, and I think my abs are tighter the day after. 😉
