16 week pregnancy update!


Baby's Size: Should be around 4.5 inches and 3.5 ounces. She didn't measure baby's length at the last u/s, but I did see baby's estimated weight was 5 ounces.

Weight gain: Weight gain is still ZERO! I'm a little happy about that. I don't know why I'm so paranoid about gaining too much weight. I was right on track my last pregnancy and I did lose it all within the first year. I'm so worried it will be tougher to bounce back this time around.


Maternity clothes?: Not wearing any maternity clothing yet.

Sleep: Great! I'm in bed around 9 or 10 at night and usually sleep until 6 or 7 in the morning.

Movement: Today, I'm almost certain I've started to feel some flutters. I'm not 100% sure though.

Food Cravings: Yogurt and homemade fruit smoothies...yum!

Symptoms: Heart burn has still been pretty bad. It is probably the reason that I haven't gained weight. I barely eat anything at each meal.

Best Moment this Week: Almost certain that I'm feeling some movement/flutters.

What I am looking forward to: My next u/s at 20 weeks. The tech was more than certain that it was a girl, but since it was a little early I'm still nervous that things will change. I have to admit that I've already bought some girly things.


The start of baby's cloth diaper stash!! When I was pregnant with Parker I knew NOTHING about cloth diapering and it was so overwhelming. Now, I'm very confident in cloth diapers. My goal is to make a 100% of this baby's stash of diapers, at least a dozen before she is born. I have also been slowly making more for Parker and getting rid of any cloth diapers that aren't made by me.

What I am NOT looking forward to: I received my progesterone shots in the mail Friday and the nurse comes on Tuesday to give me the first shot. Bleh, not a fan of needles.  I'm so sensitive to medications and I'm very worried about the side effects. Especially, it's effect on my energy levels. I'm feeling so great right now.
