How far along? 16 weeks
Total weight gain/measurements: I just got back from a 4 nights in Vegas and I am sure that I gained some weight. I might wait a few days for me to get back into the swing of things to weigh myself. I did speak to my doctor about weigh gain and she said that because I still haven’t gained anything is completely normal for me. Glad to hear!
Maternity clothes: I love maternity clothes! They are so comfortable! Wish I could wear them forever;) ……kidding! But maybe haha
Sleep: I am a very weird sleeper in that I NEED a fan to sleep. Sleeping in Vegas was difficult because they didn’t have fans in the rooms. There was a fan associated with the air conditioning running but it was very quiet. I definitely didn’t get the good quality sleep that I would have if I were home.
Best moment this week: Well we found out it was a BOY. We also decided on a crib and dresser/changing table for him! I have decided that I want to have a woodland themed nursery. NOT a cartoon version but a wildlife/woodland type. I will upload pictures of things I purchased so you will have an idea.(purchased pillow of fox and tippee)
Miss anything? Being in Vegas and not drinking was definitely weird to say the least. But when everyone else was hung over the next day, I felt great! Not so bad being sober!
Movement: I definitely felt some big kicks while in Vegas. They caught me off guard. It is such an amazing feeling! I loved every second of it!
Food cravings: No real cravings. I just ate whatever I wanted while in Vegas.
Anything making you queasy or sick? No. Had a mountain dew while in Vegas and it gave me a really bad after taste. So that is depressing but I am sure it is for the best.
Gender: It’s a BOY!
Labor signs: None.
Symptoms: Belly is growing! I was a little short of breath while walking around in Vegas (lots of walking) My feet hurt from all of the walking. I also had a little swelling in my fingers…not sure if it was from all the walking or the salt that I was eating but it only happened one night.
Belly button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On, but that one night it was difficult to get them off:)
Happy or moody most of the time: Super happy this week! I had so much fun in Vegas. Some of my old classmates came out for the conference as well so it was so nice to catch up. We laughed a lot. It was so nice to have a little vacation away.
Looking forward to: Putting the baby’s room together! Next Friday I will travel to Wisconsin to see my family. I can’t wait…I haven’t seen them since Christmas so its long overdue. They also haven’t seen my little bump which it will be nice to show them! The trip is really to complete some of my craft projections for the reception on May 14th 2016. I am excited to see everyone.
Days to go: 168
Baby development: Baby is the size of an avocado. His legs are much more developed, his head is more erect and his eyes have moved more towards their final position. His ears are close to their final position too. He has started growing toenails and his heart is now pumping about 25 quarts of blood each day.
Feeling great! I am so excited to get back to Wisconsin even if it is only for 2-3 days. I also can’t wait to start to feeling him more often.
