16 Weeks Pregnant

 How far along: 16 weeks! Due June 28th!

Total weight gain: Up 2 lb. and totally rockin’ a bump all the time now! 

Maternity clothes: None yet, but i’m sure they will be pulled out before I know it.

Stretch marks: None yet this time around, and again I am using my FAVORITE stretch mark oil {here} and the chest cream {here}.  Last time around I got three marks the ONE night I forgot to put it on my chest, so I am not making that mistake this time around!

Sleep: This week was good for sleep. Maybe not enough of it, but good regardless:)

Best moment of this week: A good friends baby shower, and date night! As I said on Instagram, I was in a crappy {for no reason} mood most of this week, so even though other good things happened, those are what sticks out to me. Glad my funk is over now!

Miss anything:  Having normal hormones;)

Movement: OH YEAH!!! I felt the baby at 15weeks and a few days! I had thought that I was feeling it a few times before, but thought that there was no way since it was so early and my placenta is in front. But nope, sure enough- it was the baby!! So excited. Not feeling it every single day, but usually every other. Best thing ever and I seriously cannot wait for the kicks and rolls to get bigger so J can feel them.

Food cravings: Nothing in particular, other than maybe soda. Bad girl! Trying to drink san pellegrino with a splash of juice in it to curb that craving, sometimes it works- sometimes not.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing! Hooray!!!!

Have you started to show yet: Yep.

Gender: Unknown, find out at 18 weeks!

Labor signs: Nope

Belly button in or out: Man oh man, it came out even more this week!

Wedding rings on or off: On, on the days that I actually wear them!

Happy or moody most of the time: Now that I have crawled my way out of my week long funk, happy!

Looking forward to: My 16 week apt {a few days late} to hear that heartbeat again, and finally get to see my normal doctor. She gets booked out so far in advance that this was the first time I will actually see her this time around. Also, booked myself a massage for this week- CANNOT wait:)

    I am exactly 16 weeks pregnant today. My update sounds a lot like yours except I am still under my pre-pregnancy weight because I have been sick a few days a week but definitely have a bump. I have felt nothing, I have to say I am jealous of the fact that you get to find out the gender at 18 weeks. They are making me weight until 20 weeks. I have felt all along it was a boy but obviously I have no clue. It’s fun to find a blogger at the same stage as me. Good luck!

      So sorry to hear you have been sick. I am SO thankful that I only had a few weeks of that crap. At least it helps maintain the weight gain {looking at the positive side of it:)} Hopefully the weeks will go fast for you to find out. My doctor lets me get the u/s anywhere from 18-20 weeks so naturally I am going at 18:)

    Do you buy your stretch mark oil on Amazon or the Mamamio website? I looked on amazon and it was $134 and only $38 on the Mamamio website. Maybe I’m looking at two different things?!
