baby #2: week 16 (adjusted time is 19 weeks)

16 Weeks Pregnant

july 29-aug 4

what has been going on this week: celebrated jack's 6th birthday, dinner with bridget + jess, les miserables show with sarah, fro yo date with diana, powderhorn art fair, kenny festival, came down with a cold over the weekend :( 

size of baby: 4.5 inches long and weighs 3.5 oz. the size of an avocado  baby center says a big growth spurt is coming - oh boy! 

maternity clothes: enjoying the maternity clothes i've purchased this time around. not feeling most of the stuff i wore last time. i feel like it is already out-dated and it's only been 3 years. :/ luckily i'm still able to wear most of my regular shirts as well. 

symptoms: broken out skin, hungry hungry hungry!

movement: i can't get over how strong the movements are. 16 weeks was when i first felt some little taps last time. at 16 weeks this time, baby is full-fledged busting a move in there. wow. i could even see my belly move from the outside this weekend. 

gender: just 3 more weeks! it seemed so far away back in may, but time has flown by. that's summer for ya! 

food cravings/aversions: same story. food = good, coffee = bad. not minding all the money i'm saving though. i hope my aversion goes away by fall, so i can enjoy some pumpkin spiced drinks i normally love! 

morning sickness: just a little bit of nausea in the morning, not bad. 

what i miss: again, not having to think about how much fish/seafood i'm consuming. funny how something sounds extra good when you are trying to limit it in your diet. 

best moment of the week: hard to pick! it was such a fun week. mainly just thankful for another successful week carrying this little one. 

what thatcher is saying: "i haven't thought about names yet at all, but i'm guessing you have?" haha. he is correct. i'm sure he'll be saying this at 35 weeks as well :) 

what i'm looking forward to: 16 (17 actually) week appointment on august 14th and our big ultra sound at the end of august! i bought a few supplies for a mini gender reveal party i'm planning. :) 

azalea photo bomb!

You look great! So excited to hear if it's a boy or girl! Do you have any guesses either way? I never had a clue :)

Dawn said...

You look amazing as ever!! Your lil bump is so cute. So excited to find out if it's a boy or girl. Two little girls would be precious...but, I'm kinda biased about that, i guess. haha

You look great! I think it's funny that Thatcher hasn't thought about names... well, that part isn't funny... but it's funny that you are expecting it to be like that even near the end! Men...

I am so excited to find out what you're having! I can't believe you're already 16 weeks! EEK! :) What are you doing for the gender reveal?!!

Bridget said...

All these bump post by fellow bloggers make me want to be preggo all over again!!! I love it!!! I can't believe you find out in a few weeks what your having...that flew by!!! Are you going to do a gender reveal @ all?

Sarah said...

Yay for gender reveal parties! Do you know what you are going to do? We did cupcakes with pink frosting in the center for Aubrey- so much fun!
