How far along? 16 weeks 6 days
Total weight gain/loss: eh? We’ll go by the drs numbers
How big is baby? The baby is the size of an Avocado. 4.6 inches and 3.5 oz
- Baby is listening to your voice, thanks to tiny bones forming in its ears.
- It’s growing hair, lashes and eyebrows
- And baby is forming taste buds
- Should start to feel baby moving..
Maternity Clothes? I have them but they aren’t a must right now. When I first got pregnant we got a couple pair of larger sized jeans to get me through for a while and I can still get them on.
Stretch Marks? Um… I’m not really seeing any but I guess I haven’t looked for a while.
Best moment this week? This really should say worst moment this week… 🙁 but I guess finding out that test results came back negative for cystic fibrosis and down syndrome…
Movement? Right now I would really like to feel movement… or get to hear the heartbeat… They say you should start feeling it around week 16 or so… I haven’t yet.
Food Cravings/Aversions? I haven’t eaten a hotdog in I can’t remember how long but this week I thought that sounded great. That or one of those Johnsonville Cheddar Worsts. Then Tuesday and Wednesday I wanted a Burger King Chicken sandwich like crazy and I can’t tell you the last time I actually had one of those either.
What I miss: My clothes fitting. Actually having a lot of clothes that fit and multiple choices.
What I’m looking forward to: Getting answers next week. Sadly we got some sad news this week and I have to go to a specialist. I don’t really know what to expect from this specialist but it could either be good news or it could be terrible news. I’ve been told not to worry but it’s extremely hard not to.
Nausea/Vomiting? eh… I’m feeling better than I did in the first trimester.
Labor signs? Let’s sure hope not! Way to early!
Gender? Don’t know but we will find out in a couple weeks.
Belly Button in or out? Still in….
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Sleep? I hurt most mornings that I have woken up this week :(. It also sucks when I wake up to my arms being asleep. This happens multiple times a night.
Weekly Wisdom: So I was told I need to not worry about going to the specialist at this point. Not worrying is easier said than done. I go to the specialist on Wednesday of next week. Once I get results (not sure if it will happen that day or if I’ll have to wait) then hopefully I can relax unless it’s bad results. I’m soooooo scared right now. This has been a week of emotional roller coaster rides. When I know something more I’ll share.
Okay so I should add a funny section. I did learn that pregnancy brain is a real thing. I was at school and sitting in the commons area. About the time I needed to head to class I grabbed all my belongings and walked down the hallway to class. I was sitting in the classroom and went to grab my chapstick which was in the pocket of my coat (along with the other pocket having my car keys, drivers license, money, credit card, etc) and couldn’t find the pocket of my coat. I turned around and realized my coat wasn’t on the back of my chair and I panicked wondering what I did with my coat. I looked all around and then realized I left it on the chair in the commons area. I ran out of the classroom and down the hallway and there it was, sitting on the chair I’d been sitting in. I felt like a retard!
Due Date: Thursday June 26, 2014. They’re still using this as the due date.
