Due Date: October 28th (I think the baby will come November 1st, we shall see!)
How far along: 16 weeks 6 days.
Size of baby: Avocado, 4.61 inches 3.50 ounces.
How many days to go: 23 weeks and 2 days.
Total weight gain/loss: I’ve lost 4lbs so far. Everyone gains and loses weight differently during pregnancy, I tend to gain at the end.
Maternity clothes: I wear my maternity shirts from last time, they’re cute and comfortable. I’m in my normal shorts and jeans.
Stretch marks: No new ones, just the load I got from Hazel! They are all white or silvery and faded now though.
Sleep: I sleep great but can’t get comfy and toss around a lot.
Best moment of this week: Getting home from Hawaii! Making it through one of the worst flights of life with our 11 month old was amazing.
Leakage: No but TMI lots more discharge this pregnancy than with Hazel.
Milestones: Made it to the second trimester without morning sickness! Baby can now hear, is growing hair and lashes, and is forming taste buds.
Weekly wisdom: Relax, enjoy your pregnancy. This only happens a few times in a woman’s life, even if they have one zillion children. Savor the moment and try not to focus on the harder parts of pregnancy.
Miss anything: Wine, being able to do physical fun things like paddle boarding and riding a bike.
Movement: I have felt the nug jab a few times and I occasionally feel little movements. My placenta is posterior so I get to feel everything sooner than most. I haven’t been able to feel anything from the outside yet though.
Food cravings: No. Nothing really ever sounds good.
Anything making you queasy or sick: No I feel pretty amazing this time. No sickness unless in a bumpy car or something similar.
Have you started to show yet: Not really, sometimes it looks like it but it’s mostly bloat or organ smoosh. I also look like I’m showing because of my 3-4 finger gap diastasis recti from my pregnancy with Hazel. After this bun comes out I’m going to work on healing that. It makes my stomach always look like there’s a horizontal football in there :(. Worth it for my babes!
Gender: It’s a boy!!!!!! We now have one of each.
Labor signs: Nope too early for that business.
Belly button in or out: It’s weird from my diastasis recti from my pregnancy with Hazel. Half in half out I guess.
Wedding rings on or off: On.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy, calm!
