Baby Hughes #2 - 16 Week Bumpdate

  • How far along are you? 16 Weeks
  • How I'm feeling: I feel great.  Finally able to eat somewhat normal again, although meat doesn't really ever sound good.  Overall I feel great.
  • Total weight gain:  I went to the doctor's office yesterday and I am still not at my pre-pregnancy weight but it is coming back.  Overall I have lost 4 pounds and gained back 3.  I'm super proud of myself.
  • How big is baby? Baby is size of an avocado today.  Baby now is forming taste buds, growing hair and can hear our voices.  Baby is about 4.6 inches long and weighs less than 4 ounces.
  • Maternity clothes: Still yes.  I hate having to wear dress clothes Monday thru Thursday but it makes me appreciate Fridays and my weekends that much more because I have some really comfortable maternity jeans! :)
  • Sleep:  Sleep is great.  I am still sleeping on my tummy.  Hoping this continues.  I was able to sleep on my tummy until 37 weeks with Caleb so here is to hoping this little babe treats me the same in the sleep department :)
  • Best moment this week: We had an appointment yesterday and this little babe was just tumbling all over the place during the heartbeat scan.  There is a strong, healthy heartbeat and we are right on schedule.
  • Movement: This week has been a major game changer in the movement department.  I feel big tumbles (which I know aren't big at all) and I've felt a few tiny kicks here and there.  Ryan was even lucky enough to feel a tiny jab on Sunday night which made us both ecstatic.
  • Food cravings: Still carbs, sandwiches, soda and fruit
  • Food aversions: Meats are difficult to eat at times but other then that I am fine.
  • Belly button in or out:  In.  But it is definitely flattening already.
  • What I am thankful for: I am thankful that this little babe is still growing big and strong.
  • What I'm looking forward to: I am excited to find out the gender.  We find out on January 9th and we couldn't be more excited.  We both think it is another boy, but we will see :)
