How Far Along: 16 weeks as of 11/08

Size of the Baby: baby is the size of a Turnip

Maternity Clothes: Still using the belly band and just got my maternity jeans in yay!

Stretch marks: none, using bio oil and earth mama oil. Hoping it works!

Weight gain: About 3 lbs

Sleep: Sleep is good, starting to wake up a bit more often though.

Best Moment of the Week: Celebrating Papa Joel's birthday! Joel even got to feel some bubbles in my tummy. So glad the baby was moving around a bit for him!

Movement: Bubbles and jabs! Loving every bit of it!

Food Cravings: Nothing really.

Gender: Not yet, we find out on November 23rd! We're so excited!

Belly Button in or out: In

Anything making you queasy or sick: Overeating makes me feel really sick really quick, so I haven't really been enjoying heavier meals.

What I miss:
 I miss being able to grab a random outfit and slip it on for work. Nowadays it's so hard to find a top that fits over my belly. 

What I am looking forward to: More movement, and hopefully some kicks!

Nursery: Joel and I decided on a theme for either sex, so once we know what it is then I'll tell you more!

Emotions: I definitely am getting really empathetic lately, when I see someone crying it makes me want to cry. I work in a hospital and saw a couple holding each other and crying, and I just starting getting tears in my eyes.  


  1. The empathy just gets worse! I'm 32 weeks and ball my eyes out when I see something sad...it's slightly ridiculous! Glad to see you are still doing well!
