Thank you all so much for your excitement about our new bundle of joy on the way! If you missed the big announcement, you can read it here. My goal is to share a little bit about my pregnancy each week so I can look back on this special time and remember each moment. I hope each of you enjoy the journey with me.
How far along? 16 Weeks
Total weight gain: 6 pounds…..this may be the only time I answer this question. 😉
Maternity clothes? Not yet! But I did order some clothes off of Pink Blush that should arrive later this week.
Stretch marks? No, but I have started using lotion each night as I keep watching my baby belly expand. Any lotion, cream or oil recommendations? I’ve heard good things about Basq and hope to try it out soon!
Sleep: I was waking up early every morning to have to go to the bathroom but now that’s subsided for a bit. Having very vidid dreams. I just seem to toss and turn a little more now.
Best moment this week: Finally figuring out what to do about our stroller and car set…stay tuned for the details!
Food cravings: Watermelon, Honey Goat Cheese, Dreamland Style Banana Pudding, lots of water!
Anything making you queasy or sick: No-the thought of drinking hot coffee early on did so I switched to half Diet Coke, half regular. I don’t remember the last time I drank so many cokes!
Labor Signs: No
Symptoms: Tired some, less often than first trimester, but it’s still there. Some nerve pain. Potty breaks a lot.
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Looking forward to: Baby’s first visit overseas next month
