Pregnancy Update: 16 Weeks

How Far Along: 16 weeks this past Monday - we're in the second trimester now!

Baby's Size: According to Babysizer, our little babe is the size of a can of pop! :)

Weight Gain/Growth: I look more like six months pregnant than three but it is what it is. I've gained some weight but mainly my body is just changing shape already.

Sleep: Sleep is okay. It could be better but again, it is what it is.

Cravings: Mexican food!

Aversions: Lots of stuff. I had horrible morning sickness for weeks and weeks. And at all different times of course. I still have trouble riding in the car sometimes.

Physical: Physically I'm feeling okay at the moment. In the medical sense I'm doing much better - the blood clot I had has reabsorbed and is gone. I'm no longer having any weird cramping or odd symptoms. I'm not as sick as I was and finally able to get some more exercise and activity.

Emotional: This has been a unique pregnancy in that it's my first one after a loss. So I'm pretty nervous about everything and I find myself second guessing all the things that I do.

Baby Movements: Some little flutters

Gender: We do not know and are not planning to find out. (I said I didn't want them to do the blood test to find out but apparently they did anyway or maybe it was just included in all the blood work I had done. Anyway, it says somewhere in my paperwork whether it is a boy or girl!)

Looking Forward To: Honestly I'm just taking it day by day. It probably sounds terrible but I hate to get too far ahead of myself.

Things To Do: Some paperwork for doctor and midwife appointments next week


Next Appointment: Next week! It's been about 3 weeks since my last one. For awhile I was going every week and then every two weeks.

I made a video a week or so ago with a little update on what's been going on with this pregnancy and our life in general recently:
