Thing 2 is on the way! Our first baby is due in April and we can't wait.
Baby is about the size of an avocado!
How far along: 16 weeks, 3 days
Weight Gain: About 4 pounds
Maternity clothes: I've been wearing maternity leggings for a few weeks now. Regular sweaters and dresses fit fine. My maternity jeans are still too big so I have been wearing a bellaband with regular jeans.
Stretch marks: Nope! Putting belly balm on every morning and night with the hopes that there won't be any!
Belly button: Still an "innie" but it's getting bigger!
Wedding ring: On
Movement: I haven't felt baby move yet but I can sense that baby is moving at about 4 am every morning if that makes sense.
Sleep: Baby wakes me up from about 4-6 am every morning (except last night!!) and I often have to get up to grab a snack. This little one must be growing.
Cravings: street tacos from Davanzas, Rice Krispies, sourdough bread
Feeling: More and more excited every day! I can't wait to be a mom and to see Sam become a dad. I also had a rough first trimester (lots of "all day sickness") and am feeling relieved that is over. I also have a lot more energy than I had during the first trimester.
Latest doctor appointment: Last appointment was Tuesday. Heartbeat is going strong and we will probably get an ultrasound at our appointment next month. Everything is looking good: healthy baby, healthy mama.
Best moment this week:
1. Sam surprised me with two new rings made by the same artist who made my engagement ring as a "we're going to be parents" present.
2. Announcing our pregnancy on social media and sharing the news with everyone. We had told all our family and close friends over the last two months but it was still exciting to announce it to those who we don't talk to as regularly.
