16 Weeks!

I am 16 weeks this week (almost 17 weeks!). I was so sick this week (with just a head cold) but couldn't take anything. I also had a VERY busy week and went 90 to nothing all week, which didn't help me get any better. I am finally on the mend and hoping an extra day off (Thank you President's Day!) will get me back to 100%! Even though this was a rough week, it was also the most exciting week because we found out our little love is a BOY!!!!!!! We are so thrilled and cannot wait to meet our little man.


Here is the 16 week update:

How Far Along: 16 weeks (2/9 - 2/16)

Size of Baby: 4.6 inches, 3.5oz, size of an avocado

Maternity Clothes: none yet! But I think I am going shopping tomorrow! :) Still wearing the band with jeans, and changing into yoga pants as soon as I get home from anywhere.

Gender: IT'S A BOY!!!!! He has no name yet, and I am not sure when that argument will end (ha!!!). As of right now, Ty is calling him Hank & Sam and I am calling him Rhett - ha!

Movement: I cannot wait until I can feel him consistently! I usually feel him (or what I think is him) every few days.

Sleep: Sleeping great, just not long enough. I went to bed late every night this week because we were so busy. I was exhausted and sick but I finally got to rest on Friday after school and slept almost 12 hours. Whew! I felt better yesterday. :)

What I Miss: I'm sure this will continue to be the same answer - wine, sleeping on my stomach, and coffee

Cravings: My cousin Karlie was talking about ramen noodles in a text the other day and now I want them. Does that count as a craving? #someonebringmealltheramennoodles

Symptoms: My belly is so hard and huge after I eat!!!! (is that a symptom?? ha)

Best Moment this week: As soon as the ultrasound tech showed him to us on the screen, I asked if his heart was beating and she said "yes". That's all I cared about. I didn't care boy or girl, I just wanted him to be ok & healthy! I loved hearing that precious heartbeat! They also gave us a CD of videos along with our pictures and we have loved watching them!!!

What I'm looking forward to: feeling him move consistently!

The bump still looks like I need to lay off the cookies but its getting there. :)


  1. Congrats on your little bundle of joy!! That is so exciting!..I think I have commented on your blog once before, I stop by here every once in a while :)

    I am also pregnant with our first and due in July a few weeks before you!! We are waiting for the birth (crazy..I know!) to find out if it is a boy or girl, I officially hit the 20 week mark today!! I picked up some maternity jeans around the 14 week mark, so you are doing waaaay better than me. LOL

    Congrats again! Hope the rest of your pregnancy goes super smooth :)
