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
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.
