I saw this on another mommy blog and loved the idea. I’ve made a few edits, but I plan to update this regularly throughout the pregnancy. Sometimes…belly photos may be included as well.
How far along? 16 weeks today!
How big is baby? Nearly 5 inches long from crown to rump, and now weighing 3+ ounces.
Weight gain? I hovered at five pounds forEVER. I jumped to 9 and seem to be hanging out there for a while.
Stretch Marks? Too soon!
Maternity clothes? I have a pair of jeans from Old Navy that I love and wear often. After a weekend with Erin I realize I need more dresses! I’m also a fan of bella bands! Thanks to those bands, I’m still wearing all of my old dress pants.
Sleep? I’m still sleeping ok, I just want more of it. I’m trying to stop sleeping on my back, but that’s proving to be difficult. I may need a body pillow or something to wedge me up on my left side.
Cravings? I fell in love with an Apple Bacon Pizza in Lexington, and already had to make one of my own last night. J liked it too, so I suspect I’ll be making it again and again!
Nursery update? Still awaiting gender news, but I’ve “sketched” out a plan.
Movement? I *might* have felt a few tiny flutters last night when I was going to bed. It might have also been regular stomach stuff. To be determined…
High point? Jordan patting my belly (ahem…and boobs) and saying we were allowed to have a boy and name it “K”.
Low point? Mysteriously jumping from 5 to 9 pounds gained.
Other: I bought a couple of small items on sale at Kohl’s this weekend (shhh). My favorite is a yellow footed PJ set that says “mommy loves me”. And I sure do.
