We’re officially in our 16th week of pregnancy and everyday that passes, the reality that we will have a little babe by next spring is beginning to feel even more real. Unfortunately, I didn’t take any bump photos in my first trimester or take note of physical changes. But, now that my blog is back up and running, I’m beyond excited to start documenting and sharing this amazing journey with you (and, hopefully learning a thing or two from other mamas along the way!).
16 Week Bump Update
Due Date: March 6th.
How far along: 16 weeks!
Size of baby: 4-5 inches, 3-5 oz. Baby is the size of an avocado.
How many days to go: 163 days (going by so fast!).
Total weight gain: 5-7 lbs.
Maternity clothes: Not quite there yet, just a few pieces. Went shopping this weekend and purchased a pair of maternity skinny jeans, a few basic tees and cute long sleeve dress (for when it gets cold/I get big) from Target. The t-shirts are so comfy, highly recommend.
Stretch marks: None…yet.
Sleep: Sleeping OK. Mike bought me this pregnancy pillow off Amazon as a surprise this week (it’s available on Prime, too!). It has become a major game changer.
Best moment of this week: Noticing my bump getting a little bigger.
Miss anything: Deli sandwiches.
Food cravings: No cravings per say, although orange juice has become quite the staple in our household.
Anything make your queasy or sick: Not a fan of grilled chicken (breaded, please).
Have you started to show yet: Yes, just a little.

Labor signs: None.
Belly button in or out: In. Belly ring has been taken out 🙁 RIP.
Wedding rings on or off: On.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy!
Looking forward to: Finding out if we’re having a boy or girl…then the real fun begins!
