16 Weeks With Baby #3

Y'all, I am so behind already. I seriously have the best intentions with this, but time is passing so dang fast! I'm 20 weeks as of yesterday, and here I am doing a 16 week update. I swear I'll get better! (I hope)


             


Due Date
August 25, 2018

This Week Baby A...
Is about the size of an avocado. Her legs are more developed, head is more erect, and she's even growing toenails. 

Symptoms
At 16 weeks my constant state of nausea was finally starting to die down. I still was waking up in the mornings sick most mornings, but it wasn't near as intense. My hips started feeling wonky super early this pregnancy, so I started seeing the chiropractor weekly around this time. Also, HEARTBURN. Ughhhh, some nights I literally could not sleep it was so intense. 

Weight Gain
5 pounds (not doing so hot this time!)

Gender
Baby Girl!

Food Cravings/Aversions
I haven't had any longstanding cravings this time, really. It's usually I want something pretty intensely that day, go get it, then I'm good. But nothing consistent.

Movements
I maaaaybe felt a few tiny flutters during my 16th week, but they weren't definite and they were super few and far between. 

Sleep
Definitely getting better at this point! I got a pregnancy pillow around this time and it was a game changer. 

Daddy's Thoughts
Y'all, my husband is not a very excitable or emotional man, but he is pumped about this baby girl! He doesn't talk about it too much, but when he does he is just over the moon. 

Fun Moments
Grayson commenting on the size of my belly - not sure I call that "fun" necessarily, but it was funny - "Woah Mama! That's a big belly!". Also, the few flutters I felt got me super excited for feeling the regular movements here in the next few weeks!

Looking Forward To
Getting the nursery together! Planning for a girl is so different - this was about the time I picked out a color scheme for the room, so I got to work planning.  So fun!
