How far along: 16 Weeks & 2 Days
Total weight gain: Okay, I swear I’m only partially doing this on purpose… but I don’t know! I haven’t stepped on the scale lately.
Maternity clothes: All day, every day.
Stretch marks: Praying this vitamin E oil works…
Sleep: I’ve been doing a lot better with sleep… although I was up for 1.5 hours in the middle of the night last night. And oy. Charlotte had been having these screaming crying fits in the middle of the night. Thankfully, she didn’t last night… but eesh. They were so sad.
Best moment of this week: We had a great weekend! Charlotte started gymnastics, which was adorable! And I saw my girlfriends, which is always nice. And last night was the first night of Chanukah, which was just so silly. Charlotte is finally into gifts.
Miss anything: I could have gone for a glass of wine or a martini this week. I’ve been having terrible, terrible headaches and could have used something to take the edge off.
Movement: On Thursday night, I’m like 99% sure I was feeling the baby. I had consumed an excessive amount of 7up and I think little baby boop was fizzing around in there. YAY! Finally, my favorite part of pregnancy.
Food cravings: Mac & Cheese… that’s been my big weakness lately.
Anything making you queasy or sick: My headaches have been making me pretty uneasy. Oy and I had a stomach flu on Sunday night/Monday morning. It was terrible. I ended up calling the doctor because I was unable to keep down anything, including liquids. In my weakened state, I got pretty nervous for the little babes. Thankfully, it was gone fairly quickly.
Have you started to show yet: Big bump.
Gender: I can’t wait to find out! I’m so indifferent, but I hate not knowing. Messes with my uber controlling mind.
Labor signs: No, no.
Belly button in or out: It’s starting to look like a gaping hole again.
Wedding rings on or off: On… but sometimes they’re tight.
Happy or moody most of the time: I was sick and recovering this week, so I’m not sure. Mostly worn out. But again, we had a great weekend and I was definitely all sorts of happy.
Looking forward to: My doctor’s appointment and a fun family weekend!
I was the same way! There was no way I could handle not knowing the gender. Ha, ha. How fun that you’ll get to find out so soon!!!
I can’t believe it’s already next week! The past 18+ weeks have flown!
