16 weeks

D thought he was so cute when we were looking for a good space to shoot!  His "bump" is bigger than mine!  hehe

How far along? 16 weeks, 4 days
Total weight gain: None!
Baby is the size of ? An Avocado
Maternity clothes? Not really.
Stretch marks? Nothin new!  But I did develop a super fun prego rash that seems to be slowly spreading. Still using the cream from the dr and hoping it will stop!
Sleep: So much better with my snoogle!  However, I was experiencing weird ear aches in the middle of the night!  After a little "on the line" research, it seems that this is a common problem for sleepy movers and shakers like myself.  I flipped that bugger over and now just cuddle with it while using my regular pillow for my head.  Problem solved... For now.
Best moment this week: Seeing more of a bump than a lump!
Miss Anything? Seriously the same!  Sleeping comfortably on my tummy, not waking up 2-3 times a night and even though I was never a huge beer drinker, it's been on my mind constantly.  I can smell BLL from a mile away! I swear I wasn't an alcoholic before pregnancy!  I guess it's true about always wanting what you can't have!!
Movement: Nothing yet- I keep thinking something is moving but I'm not sure!  Small flutters?
Food cravings: Nope.  If my eyes see it, I might crave it but nothing that I HAVE to have.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Still meat, specifically red meat.  Steak is ok but ground beef, and pretty much any meat I smell turns my stomach.  I'm pretty much a vegetarian!
Exercise? Lots of walking, still!   Currently getting the house all put together and looking for jobs but I would like to start swimming again, soon!
Gender:  ??  We'll have to wait for our next ultrasound!  Should be second week of Sept!
Labor Signs: Nope.
Symptoms: Typical symptoms aren't there, but still tired.  I have good days and bad with random aches and pains.
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On most of the time!
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy most of the time, but I have had a couple of prego swings.  Those are not fun!
Looking forward to: Finding out if Baby Ladd is a he or a she so I can start buying and decorating!!
Until next time...


  1. I honestly craved alcohol like no other with my last child. It was intense and trust me, I wasn't even really a social drinker when I got pregnant.
