How far along: 16 weeks pregnant! Due September 27th!
Total weight gain: Up 3 lbs.
Maternity clothes: Some. Pregnancy makes me realize just how many different fits I have in my pants. Some jeans fit fine still, some need a hair-tie, and some i’ve given up on entirely;)
Stretch marks: Nothing happening yet:) But I am using a combo of old and new tricks to keep them away. The Mama Mio oil I have used with the past two pregnancies has kept me almost completely stretch mark free, so i’m sticking with it. But I am also adding in a drop of Gentle Baby and Frankincense Young Living essential oils.
Sleep: Sleep at night is good still! Some days taking a short nap, some none at all. My energy levels are pretty good right now though.
Best moment of this week: Spending some time with my dad this weekend. And we went on two date nights- hallelujah. I love that hubby of mine something fierce, so alone time with him is awesome!
Miss anything: Freaking beer bad right now.
Movement: I don’t know how many of you saw this, but I kinda had a little freak out last week. I had thought I was feeling her move there for about two weeks, and then nothing. I had my doctors apt. last week and sure enough she is totally fine with a nice strong heart beat. So apparently I wasn’t feeling her moving before. Haha. Now I am just excited for when that truly happens!
Food cravings: Arnold Palmers every single day and Frosted Flakes. Same!
Anything making you queasy or sick: nothing. A GLORIOUS nothing! SO thankful to have made it past that phase now! I have been a sugar addict lately, so trying to curb that a little now because it has gotten out of hand.
Have you started to show yet: Heck yes. And growing daily.
Gender: A sweet precious baby GIRL!
Labor signs: I unfortunately think I am already beginning to get Braxton Hicks contractions. I have them with every pregnancy, and each time they have just started sooner and sooner. I am familiar with them, so they don’t scare me- but just have to be cautious with them and make sure there aren’t ever too many in an hour.
Belly button in or out: That bad boy is creeping its way out already.
Wedding rings on or off: On!
Happy or moody most of the time: So happy! So beyond happy. Like can’t stop smiling, and crying, and smiling! Sometimes I find myself being a little snappy. I will literally be so happy, something will make me super mad for two minutes, and then I am back to being happy. Oh hormones;)
Looking forward to: Celebrating our 8th anniversary this week and weekend! Cannot believe we’ve been together for over 11, and married for 8 now! Love that man.
