16 Weeks

So I’ve become one of those people that speaks in weeks. It’s impossible to avoid. At 16 weeks, I actually feel and look pregnant (to me anyway). I liked reading other bloggers “bumpdates” so I thought I would do it too. Here goes…

How far along? 16 weeks – the babe is the size of an avocado

**My sister reminded me I needed a pic…duh**

Total weight gain: 0!

Sleep: Um, not great, but that is nothing unusual. I have to get up most every night to pee = mega annoying.

Best moment this week: Finding out I had not gained any weight even though I feel like a tanker.

Worst moment of the week: Mike’s ruined birthday cake which was immediately followed by an emotional breakdown.

Have you told family and friends: Yep.

Miss Anything? BOOOOZE and my flat abs.

Food cravings: Super cliche but I am loving pickles/pickle juice. Also orange juice. Cold pasta salads.

Food aversions: Not really. Not into meat which is totes unlike this carnivore.

Have you started to show yet: Yes. I bought a belly band today!

Gender: We have to wait a whole month before we have the big ultrasound.

Symptoms: Sore stomach muscles, HUGE sore boobs, constantly congested, always thirsty, and STUPID TIRED. Like more tired than I thought possible. I really wasn’t overly tired during my first trimester, but when I hit the second trimester it is like something drained all the life out of me.

Workouts: Just dog walks…basically none. I want/need to start though.

Happy or Moody most of the time: It changes with the wind. Very happy to insanely irritated to ridiculously weepy. It is exhausting.

Looking forward to: Actually having a real bump and not just looking bloated.


Ok. That was pretty boring I guess.

  1. Oh yay! I love bumpdates! They should be accompanied by a photo however….the one you sent me earlier would probably get quite a response 😉 Happy belated Bday to the baby daddy.

  2. Hooray. I love reading these too. The no meat thing is making me think girl. I need to see the bump. I thought the cake looked promising. Xxoo

  3. Not boring! Keep these coming!! I’m so excited for you and before I get knocked up (in like five years because I’m frightened) I need to know EVERYTHING. You look fab! I have been finding lots of great workouts on Pinterest lately FYI if you are looking for anything easy and free.

  4. Ps. Are you still coming in town this weekend? I am cracking up that I was talking about meeting up for drinks and you were sitting there thinking…..I’m knocked up!

  5. This is so great…a bumpdate! Eeek you are so stinkin’ cute! You will surely be the sexiest little mama ever made. 😉 Pickles…hahahaha. No meat! Whoa. That is big. Sorry you are so tired. 😦 Hope that ends. Soon. And the cake. I have meltdowns like that all the time. And I’m not pregnant. :-\ At least you have an excuse. 😉 Keep these coming! xoxo
