16 weeks

Please excuse my lack of a post last week. We were on vacation and while I love my blog, I loved the beach more. We had so much fun on our vacation. It was so nice getting away and being able to spend nonstop time together. It was also great to eat like calories didn't matter.

I almost made it through the whole vacation without throwing up, but unfortunately one morning the baby got the best of me and I had to break in the hotels sink. I am now taking the anti-nausea medicine Phenegran every morning. It is a life saver and I am actually able to eat normally again. I am hoping I won't need it much longer, but as of right now I have to take on right when I wake up or else I start feeling really bad.

I think it is easy to see that my belly has grown! I now have a bump and am quite proud of it. It makes me look a lot better in my maternity clothes and people are starting to ask me when I'm due.

My next appointment is April 30th. That is when we will schedule our big u/s. I am thinking it will be anywhere between May 10th and May 22nd. I am hoping it is closer to May 10th because I am about ready to burst waiting to find our what we are having. I was almost certain we were having a girl, but the day after I called the baby Emma all day I got sick. Maybe our baby boy was trying to tell me something. Either way I just want to know so I can find some cute clothes!

How far along? 16 weeks!
Total weight gain/loss: Up 8.5 pounds from 14 weeks. Yikes. Only up 4.5 pounds from my pre-pregnancy weight so that isn't as bad.
Maternity clothes? All of my bottoms and a few tops that aren't as flowy.
Stretch marks? No
Sleep: It's alright. I'm trying to train myself to sleep on my side and am failing.
Best moment this week: Thinking I *maybe* felt a flutter.
Movement: Possibly one night, but maybe not.
Food cravings: Fruit, veggies, and bagels.
Gender: I guess girl...maybe. Sometimes.
Labor Signs: None and lets keep it that way for the next 21 weeks or so.
Belly Button in or out? In, but it is stretching out.
What I miss: Nothing. I am feeling pretty good.
What I am looking forward to: My next appointment and hearing baby's HB again.
Weekly Wisdom: Buy maternity underwear...even if they are bikini style. They are heavenly.
Milestones: Baby can hear me this week. I better watch my mouth!
