My Pregnancy: Week 16

Here I am at week 16. I can't even believe it. Every week that goes by is such a blessing, I cannot even describe how grateful I am to be pregnant!

I am currently waiting on my fetoscope to get here so I can start attempting to listen to this little ones fetal heart tones. No.. I have NOT heard the heartbeat yet and YES I am super jealous of all you preggo's I follow on Twitter getting to hear your babies already! :)

How Far along? 16 weeks! (4 months)

Size of the baby? the baby is about 4 1/2 inches long and 3 1/2 ounces. The size of an AVOCADO! Yum

Any new symptoms? yes I have been having crazy dizzy spells when I stand up. I think I might need to drink more water and eat more frequently!

What are you craving? I've been going salad crazy. I went to Olive garden just to get their soup, salad and bread-stick combo, I had 3 bowls of salad. Yeahhh. And don't even get me started on HoSum Bistro's Combo Salads! So good.

Total weight gain? 2 lbs I think (but I didn't weigh myself this week so it could be more!)

Baby Bump? absolutely, it's grown this past week for sure.

Movement? YES! I can finally feel movement from the outside of my belly! Last night when baby was kicking I gently pushed back where I was feeling him/her and he/she kicked me! *amazing*

Any feelings about gender?
still getting mostly girl vibes

Nesting? maybe a little. I've been organizing Lucy's things lately, her room is getting out of control and I'm going to need to put some baby things in there.

Sleeping well? much better than last week! We got a foam pad to put over our rock hard IKEA bed and my back is no longer hurting me.

Buy anything for the baby this week? yes I bought the most adorable newborn Goodmama fitted diaper with owls on it. It will be perfect for newborn pictures, I can't wait. :)

What are you looking forward to? my fetoscope getting here, any day now!

What are you enjoying the most/least about being pregnant this week? I am really enjoying all the movement I've been feeling, I can't even describe how relieving it's been. I'm not enjoying the, ahem (TMI), constipation I've been having. Though it's not crazy bad, I prefer to be regular. :)

My Pregnancy: Week 15

How Far along?
15 weeks

Size of the baby? the baby is about 4 inches long and weighs about 2 1/2 ounces (the size of an apple!)

Any new symptoms? yes, horrible gas pains if I eat too much too fast (sorry TMI). Headaches at night. Still the occasional nausea in the mornings but I think it's almost gone!

What are you craving? seafood! Lox on my bagels, shrimp and sushi baby!

Total weight gain? 2 lbs

Baby Bump? yes I have a little bump that is becoming quite noticeable. :)

Movement? Little flutters and kicks here and there.

Any feelings about gender?
getting mostly girl vibes

Nesting? nope. no cleaning or organizing going on over here.

Sleeping well? yes and no. I can't tell if it's because of my bed but my back has been killing me in the mornings. Also I've been having some awful dreams that wake me up.

Buy anything for the baby this week?
Yes! I am buying my fetoscope this week.

What are you looking forward to? Hearing the heartbeat for the first time, Eddie being able to feel the baby move and finding out the sex!

What are you enjoying the most/least about being pregnant this week?
I am enjoying my growing bump and having more energy again. I am not enjoying my gas pains or how difficult it is becoming to carry my toddler with this bump in the way!

Beach Day Pictures

We went to the beach on Saturday, it was beautiful, warm and sunny. I wish I could just live at the beach! Lucy is always good when we take her too, she contently plays in the sand for hours.
