16 Weeks

How far along:  16 weeks

Baby size:  Size of an Avacado!

Baby's progress:  Baby is starting a growth spurt.  And baby even has toenails now!

Weight gain:  Zilch.  Holding steady at my weight loss weight.  

Stretch marks:  Nada

Sleep: Bedtime is still early and I'm starting to wake up early.  I'm able to fall back asleep, thank goodness!

Gender: We aren't finding out :)

Movement:  I've been feeling 'quickening' for the past three weeks, but finally a flick!!  A flick!!!  Such an amazing moment.  I was resting on the couch and zoning out, when all of a sudden - flick.  I jolted and then froze.  I was debating if it was gas bubbles, hunger pains, anything else, when FLICK! it happened again!!  Movement is getting stronger and I can't wait for more consistent movement.

Best moment this week: Feeling the flick!!

Looking forward to: Our mini vacation coming up.

Food cravings: Food aversion is real people.  I want nothing, but I force myself to eat.  I swear, it's two bites and I'm done.  I hope this ends REAL soon.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope!  All signs of nausea are gone.  

Labor signs: Nope

What I miss: Clothes fitting.  I'm slowly weeding out more and more items that don't fit.

Symptoms: My Bump!  I love knowing that it's all baby right now.

Workouts: Still taking two walks a day at work (weather permitting) and weighted arm exercises.  

Things that suck:  Seriously - not having an appetite.  It's a struggle to force myself to eat.  Even ice cream isn't appealing.

Things that don't suck: Baby flutters and hearing the heartbeat at the 16 week appt.  How excited Justin is to be a father and he is going to be an amazing father :)
