16 Weeks Pregnancy Update

16 weeks pregnant

How far along? 16 weeks
Size of Babies: The size of avocados!
Total weight gain/loss: -10, +8!
Symptoms: Fatigue (as usual), a little nausea, some low back pain, indigestion and some heartburn. Sounds fun, right? Let’s throw in some weepiness for fun, too. 😛
Maternity clothes? Yep, can’t stand any pressure on my tummy right now.
Stretch marks? None from the pregnancy. :)
Sleep: Like a rock.  I still wake up every time I turn over, but I fall right back to sleep.
Best moment this week: Finally starting to feel pregnant! Belly and all.
Miss Anything? Eating meat without nausea. Really eating anything without some nausea or indigestion.
Movement: Nothing for sure yet. Can’t wait though!
Food cravings: As listed above. 🙂
Anything making you queasy or sick: Food. Smells. (Dirty people, dirty places, cologne)
Have you started to show yet: There’s no denying a pregnancy anymore!
Gender prediction: Crossing my fingers for a boy and girl!
Labor Signs: Nada.
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy, but there has been some definite sad times in there.
Looking forward to: Finding out the genders and feeling them move! (Still!)


I have been working beaucoup hours lately, which is hopefully explaining my lack of updates. I think things should slow down a little bit, but we shall see. Trying to make some extra money before maternity leave!

Had my 16 week appointment with my OB this week. Apparently everything is looking good so far.  One of the babies heartbeats is in the 140’s and the others is consistently in the 160’s!

Hope you all have an amazing week and Happy Thanksgiving!
