16 Weeks!


Today marks the 16 week mark.  I'm officially 4 months pregnant.  Wow, that sounds crazy!  

Pregnancy Updates:

Baby G's size: About the size of an avocado.  4 1/2 inches long and about 3 1/2 ounces.  Getting bigger! 

My size: My baby bump is slowly starting to get larger!  We don't own a scale (which needs to change) so I'm not sure how much weight I've gained.  Last time I was at the doctor I had gained about 3 pounds.  I have a feeling I've gained a little students are always telling me that my stomach is getting bigger by the day!  

Most excited thing: Knowing that I will be able to find out if Baby G is a boy or a girl in just TWO weeks!  I have this feeling it's a girl...even though I'm still really hoping for a boy!  I am also so excited to feel Baby G kick sometime soon!

Most annoying thing: Definitely sleeping!  I wake up at least 3 times to use the bathroom during the night. I also can't sleep on my stomach anymore (I've always been a belly sleeper) so I wake up a lot during the night because I've rolled onto my stomach and am very uncomfortable.  So annoying!

Cravings: I haven't really had many yet.  I am loving fruit (especially apples) but I've always been a fruit eater so I'm not sure whether that's a craving or not!

Sickness: I've still been getting sick to my stomach every now and then.  I can slowly start to feel my energy returning although I am still exhausted.  I'm pretty sure being a teacher and being pregnant are a lethal combination! :)

Next appointment: I go to the doctor this coming Thursday for a regular check-up.  About a week and a half after that I will go back for my second ultrasound which will tell us if Baby G is going to be a golfer or gymnast!  I can't wait to find out but am even more excited to see my baby again.  He or she will have changed SO much in 8 weeks!

(You may notice the leggings in these belly skinny jeans don't fit so well now that I'm not so leggings are going to become my best friend especially when I wear boots! :))

Well there you have it!  4 months down, 5 more to go!  Have a wonderfull Saturday! :)
