I so don’t want to wait a whole freakin’ month to find out the gender at the anatomy scan. I want to go to one of those independent sonogram places and get scanned and look for a penis or vagina… right NOW! John thinks I’m nuts and that Nov 9 isn’t that far away. But it feels like an eternity.
Let’s look at 16 weeks with first baby!
How Far Along? 16 Weeks!! Just 24 (ish) weeks to go! I’m 4 months!
Symptoms: Super duper sleepy, nauseousness again. I really have no energy for Roey and I feel terrible about it. Also nausea, headaches almost every day, an itchy belly, and getting emotional.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: 2 lbs so far. I keep forgetting to weigh myself to check.
Maternity Clothes: Not really yet. Just wearing my same jeans and leggings, up top I’m wearing my loose shirts and I got my maternity clothes bin down so I’ll go through it and get the maternity sweaters together.
Stretch Marks: No new ones yet. I’m trying my best to avoid getting any more. I’m using Bio Oil and my other oils/lotions to moisturize my belly whenever it gets itchy.
Sleep: It’s not the best…and with Rohan waking me up at 4:30am each day, it’s even worse.
Food Cravings: salty stuff, but now I’m also wantin’ chocolate chip cookies and frosted flakes and lots of juices.
Best Moment This Week: Not baby related really, but yesterday’s anniversary date day was nice. As a family we went to a restaurant and enjoyed a late lunch. Then when we came home and I wasn’t feeling well, John fed, changed, and put Roey to bed while I napped. -Glorious!-
Movement: I felt another blip. Nothing more. I feel like my entire uterus moves though, I feel that firm lil thing on both sides of my body.
Labor Signs: none at all. Hopefully none until at least 37 weeks
Belly Button In Or Out? By day: Half Out …. By night: 75% Out
What I Miss: Energy. I just feel soooo drained.
What I Am Looking Forward To: Finding out the gender.
Don’t forget to Vote!
Milestones: I hit 4 months! Other than that I’m considering it a milestone that I’m able to work out!
Weekly Wisdom: Take as much help as you can get. Nap as much as you can. Drink drink drink.
Any advice for me at this stage in pregnancy?
