16 Weeks

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 16 weeks
Size of Baby W: Avocado
Total Weight Gain/Loss: maybe 1-2 pounds
Maternity Clothes: Not yet
Gender: Can't wait to find out!
Movement: Not yet
What I Miss: Having plenty of energy to get through the day

Wyatt's Cravings: None this week
Symptoms: Some headaches and being hungry all the time
Best Moment This Week: Doing some online window shopping for baby stuff while snowed in

My next appointment is next week and I can't wait! I am hoping I'll be able to schedule a gender determination ultrasound while there and not have to wait until I'm at least 20 weeks. I have a few other places to check into if they say I have to wait, so hopefully we can find out sooner rather than later.

Although it doesn't look like I'm 'showing' yet to most people, I can definitely tell I'm getting rounder. I went ahead and loosened my belt one hole today - it will still fasten in the same hole I've been using for several years but can be a little uncomfortable at times. I will probably have to invest in a new belt once it starts getting warmer (since my coat and/or sweater cover it now) because mine is very worn from always wearing it in the same hole, lol! Also, when I put my jeans on tonight for my weekly picture, they fit a little more snuggly than last week. I have a pretty long torso so I think that has helped 'hide' the bump, but I have a feeling I'm going to really start outwardly showing over the next few weeks.

We are expecting more snow tonight and into tomorrow and while we still have PLENTY still on the ground and roads from last week's, I wouldn't mind having another day off! I definitely got spoiled last week - I only worked 1 day!!! I could really get used to that, but I'll take a day off mid-week too :)

I hope everyone has a great and safe rest of the week!
