Bumpdate | Week 16


Week|  16

Total Weight Gain| I'm up about 8 - 10 pounds.  My doctors are counting my weight gain from my first prenatal appointment I had at 8 weeks, which I think is a little misconceiving because I'd already gained a little bit of weight at that point, or it was the holidays, one of the two.

Gender| ???  No luck at our 16 week appointment, but our 20 week anatomy scan is officially scheduled for March 30th, can't wait!

Symptoms| Nothing too crazy, just some mild symptoms that sound pretty regular.  More congestion, more headaches then normal, and general what I'm assuming are growing pains.

Cravings|  I am still holding strong with my spicy California rolls and cheese cravings.  In fact I had spicy California rolls last Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, and yesterday for lunch and dinner. . .don't judge me, they're just so good!

Sleep|  I seem to be sleeping a little more restless these last few days, I'm hoping it's just temporary.  I've been looking into purchasing a pregnancy body pillow but haven't pulled the trigger on one yet.

Clothes|  I really have to get on this, I'm hating all my regular clothes, they are feeling way too tight and snug, but I'm still not quite big enough for some of the maternity stuff, so I'm kinda in that awkward phase.  I have a feeling I'll be doing a lot of layering of tank tops and jackets/sweaters.

Workouts| Slowly picking up my game, I made it to the gym 3 days this week and I'm aiming for more next.  I gotta get back and track because I just feel so much better when I do!

Nursery|  We're slowly starting to get the room cleaned out.  Martin has been posting a lot of the stuff that's hanging around in our future nursery on Craigslist and it's starting to go which means we are slowly making progress.

Movement|  Nothing yet, but we saw our baby hanging out upside down at my 16 week appointment wiggling around.


Best Moment this Week|  Getting a good check up and hearing our babies strong heart beat.  Every milestone down feels like such an accomplishment, and nothing is better then the sense of relief I have after each appointment knowing that everything is looking ok.

In Other News|  Because of my PCOS I have to be screened earlier for gestational diabetes, I had my blood glucose test on Monday, haven't heard anything yet but I'm crossing my fingers all is well.  I'll have to repeat the test later, closer to the time when they would normally test.  It was so not fun, I am not used to consuming that much sugar at all and I got the most raging headache after that, definitely not looking forward to the repeat!

  3. You're looking fabulous! I know it had to be disappointing that he/she wouldn't cooperate at your 16-week appointment so you could learn the gender....but just a few more weeks till you'll know!

  7. It's such a good feeling of relief, I never start questioning if things are ok until about a week before my appointment - then I start getting anxious!

  10. Thanks girl, had to inject some spring! Good luck with your glucose test, I have to do another one later and I have to seriously figure out how to manage that sugary drink because I felt SO absolutely horrible the rest of the night!
