Week 16 Bumpdate

It looks like you not only have to watermark your children's pictures but pictures of yourself now too. We had someone steal a picture of Theo and I and use it on Plenty of Fish saying we're a "bi curious couple" from Nova Scotia or something. The internet is such a scary place!


How Many Weeks: 16 weeks 

Size of Baby: Avocado

Gender: We find out this weekend!! I had a dream the other night it was a girl. I'm still thinking boy but I really don't know!

Movement: I think I may of felt a flutter or a "pop" once or twice but it's so quick and I don't really know what I'm looking for. Plus it could just be gas.

Sleep: I've resorted to sleeping on my side since I can't sleep on my stomach anymore for fear I'll squish the baby plus my boobs are in the way and I know you aren't supposed to sleep on your back really after this point. But I always wake up on my back because although I used to be fine sleeping on my side, now it's more difficult and I don't know why. I try to sleep with my Snoogle but I wake up hot and I end up throwing it off the bed. I know it's only going to get worse!

Workouts: Still walking the dog and busting my butt at work. Not to make you feel sorry for me but I worked 14 hours the other day at work and I barely had a chance to sit down. The life of a nurse!

Maternity Clothes: My Old Navy maternity shorts are still my favorite. I just ordered a white pair too so I should be good to go for awhile, I hope!

Weight Gain: Up 3 lbs! 

Symptoms: Feeling pretty good overall, the 2nd trimester is oh so nice! Still have some fatigue and still going to bed at 9pm every night. The acne is out of control on my face and you can't put any normal acne medication on it so I just have to live with it. :( I pee all.the.time. Infact I'm orienting a new girl right now at work and one of the first things I said to her was "I'm going to apologize now. I'm pregnant so I pee a lot, eat often, forget what I'm saying midsentence, and burp all the time. Sorry!" So lady like! 

Cravings/Aversions: This past weekend I was craving cripsy fried chicken sandwiches and milkshakes. Also obsessed with orange juice and fruit. I make these smoothies at home with berries, bananas, chia seeds, and oj and they're so good. Don't really have any aversions anymore which is nice.

Missing Most: Being able to have a nice cold frozen drink but I guess I still could if it's non alcoholic. 

Nursery: We have a long ways to go but I don't plan on starting anything till after we find out the sex.

Hubby: Excited to find out the gender this weekend! 

Best Part of the Week: Our 16 week appt went fine, no ultrasound just listened for the heartbeat with the doppler, 146 bpm which is funny because that's exactly what it was at our last appt at 12 weeks, and my blood pressure and urine were good. Also we had the AFP test drawn, I guess it checks for Spina Bifida and other birth defects like Downs syndrome and Edwards syndrome, and it came back normal. 

Can't Wait For: To find out the gender this weekend and our 20 week visit with the high risk doctor. I have to see a high risk doctor for my anatomy ultrasound because of my Polycystic Kidney Disease. I'm pretty nervous about it so please pray everything looks ok with the baby's kidneys. I just keep reminding myself I have the disease and I was fine as a baby and so did my mom and grandfather. My hope is the baby didn't even get the disease, they have a 50% chance.

  1. Aw the baby is the size of an avocado! Glad to hear your feeling good. I am sooo excited to find out the gender!! I would love to help you find some nursery inspiration/ ideas once you find out! When I had my 20 week ultrasound with Cole his kidneys measured a little large. All was well by the time I delivered though ;) xo

  2. For some reason I've tried to comment on this twice already and my comments keep disappearing so if you have 3 from me I'm sorry :) Your bump is adorable! I can't wait to hear boy or girl! Hoping everything else turns out well at the 20 week scan. I had hip problems in my pregnancy with Miller and my doctor said it was fine to sleep on my back as long as I propped myself up with 3-4 pillows. Which I did until about the last 4 weeks when it's imposslbe to be comfortable unless you're on your side.

  6. How creepy that someone stole a photo of y'all! I rarely ever watermark phootos of us, but I may have to start doing that as well. I've watermarked photos of Sophie but not just of Kyle and I. My doctor told me that if you're waking up on your back it's okay, your body woke you up so that you could move to your side. Maybe she said this to make me feel better but at the time it made me feel a lot better. Go with your gut for the gender, momma knows best. I knew I was having a girl from the moment I was pregnant even though everyone else was convinced I was having a boy. Hope your baby's kidney's are fine, pray that they are!
