Bumpdate | Week 16

How far along? 16 weeks, one day.

Size of baby: Baby is the size of an Avacado.

Gender: It's a girl!

Weight Gain: Holding steady at about 3-4 pounds.

Maternity Clothes: Yep! Richard's mom ordered me clothes off Pink Blush Maternity. I love the selection on that site and everything is cute yet works for pregnancy. Most of what she bought for me is long sleeves and its not quite cool enough in Texas for long sleeves yet. I did get one t-shirt that I love and have been wearing quite a bit. I also bought a pumpkin themed shirt for a work thing and I have been wearing it as much as possible since I can only wear it a few weeks longer.
Symptoms: Still with the headaches. They are not quite as intense when they do come, but still bad enough. Other than that I have been feeling pretty great! It has been fun recently because most people actually know that I am pregnant now so I don't feel like I have to hide it.

Cravings: Still not many. Food has been easier lately because I don't have as much aversion to food these days. But for the most part I don't want anything in particular.

Sleep: Sleep has been going ok I guess. I recently bought a pregnancy pillow to sleep with hoping that it would help with the headaches. I bought a pillow that is basically shaped like a C so it should help support my back while I sleep on my side. It has been helping so far, but I still have to get used to it.

Best Moment This Week: Finally revealing that we are having a baby girl! It did not feel real until I could freely talk about it. It has started to sink in now and it has been so fun to think about it!

Looking Forward To: We have another doctor's appointment today! I am hoping to be able to hear the heartbeat again. Also, according to my pregnancy book I should be able to feel movement any day now so that should be fun!
