How far along: 16 weeks, 1 day!
Total weight gain/loss: At my appt. last week, up 8 pounds already?! I am blaming my heavy shoes/jeans/not going #2 that day. JEESH!
Stretch marks: No new oness, but I do have old ones on my hips from growing so fast in puberty…hoping this doesn’t mean I will get new ones all over my belly, but I’m not feeling too optimistic about that. Oh well.
Maternity clothes: I am still wearing some non-maternity things, but the maternity clothes are sure more comfy!
Sleep: not too bad, my worst complaint is bad dreams like every single night it seems that I awake from and am terrified for a while. I am SO GLAD I bought a pregnancy pillow early on.
Food cravings or aversions: Milk, milk, more milk, cereal with milk, and milk. YUM can’t get enough of it haha. Not really averted to much these days, unfortunately.
Gender (and/or when you will find out if not already listed): finding out in THREE WEEKS and I can’t wait!!!!
Movement: maybe, but not 100% certain. Def. not feeling it all the time or anything yet. I am excited for this, too!
Diet: I have been trying to eat a little healthier since my huge weight gain at last appointment. Trying to stick with whole grains, fruits, veggies, low fat dairy, etc. DH is a huge help in this department, he is such a health nut he discourages me from eating crap a lot, but sometimes it makes me mad because I just really want that greasy yummy stuff!
What I’m loving: not feeling so sick all the time and not feeling so tired! YAAAY 2nd tri! 🙂 OHH and my huge boobs! Seriously, I have never gotten to enjoy these before haha.
What I’m not loving: the heartburn. Ohhh the heartburn. Which is also why I am trying to eat a little healthier, really fatty/greasy foods tend to give me as much heartburn as spicy foods. Oy.
What I miss: Ohh the usual, beer, wine, sushi, super hot baths, my flat tummy.
Favourite moment this week: At a couples shower this weekend, DH put his hand on my tummy and said, “Yep, we have a little one on the way in there.” Ahhh, I could have died. Now as far as other people touching my tummy…not so sure I will love that once I actually GET a belly! Haha…esp. the Mother-In-Law. BACK OFF! 😛
I might be a little MIA because once again, it’s test week for med school and I am terribly behind in studying. I am pretty ecstatic I only have 4 weeks left of class!!! And I am LOVING this warmer weather, although we are supposed to get a little snow on Tuesday. GO AWAY WINTER!
