How far along? 16 weeks today
Total Weight Gain: (?) since pre-pregnancy. I have no idea, really. My face is thinner, I can still wear most pants with a Bella Band, and I don’t think I’ve gained much, if anything.
Maternity Clothes? I’m definitely in the maternity clothes now or stretching my regular pants with the Bella Band. That’s actually starting to get really uncomfortable, though, so I think I’ll be switching to just maternity pants soon. The shirts are a definite; my regular shirts are snug across the middle or just not long enough.
Stretch Marks? I get occasional red marks but no lasting stretch marks. I started using the Palmer’s stretch mark therapy oil to at least help the ones I already have.
Sleep? I’m starting to wake up early in the morning and have trouble getting back to sleep.
Best Moment This Week: Going to bed early and getting a little more rest!
Movement: I do feel little jabs and squirms, especially when the band of the maternity pants presses against the baby.
Food Cravings: Einstein Brothers asiago cheese bagels, toasted, with a little cream cheese. Mmm. Otherwise, I keep getting strong aversions.
Gender: Still thinking girl
Labor Signs: Nope
Belly Button: Becoming more of a crater than a button. Seth likes to poke at it in the mornings.
What I miss: Sushi!
What I am looking forward to: Hearing the heartbeat again on Monday during our appointment.
Weekly Wisdom: You kind of have to remember to eat enough food, or you don’t feel good.
Milestones: Four months completed!
