16 Weeks

How Far Along: 16 weeks as of last Monday - I know these aren't the highest quality pictures, but real life is this.  There is no time to set up a tripod and try to be official about it with a toddler running around, but I do work out each day so why not snap a pic then?!

Size of Baby: Avocado

Weight Gain: 6 pounds; when I went to the doctor I asked about weight gain and she assured me that this is lower than average so not to be concerned.  That made me feel really good since I've been working hard to stay healthy.

Stretch Marks: Not yet - hopefully not ever

Maternity Clothes:  I am wearing my tops and some of my bottoms.  Really looking forward to spring where I can live in my dresses.

Gender:  CT, Hubby, and I went to a 4D ultrasound last weekend and found out the gender as a family.  We are keeping it a secret until March 12th when we will announce it to our close family and friends at a little party at our house.

Movement:  Feeling little flutters- like butterfly wings

Sleep:  It's not great - I could use more (said every mom ever) and it would be nice if my toddler would sleep in his own bed all night.  He usually starts there, but ends up coming into my room in the middle of the night and instead of fighting it, I just pull him into bed with us.

Missing:  Wine.  Other than that I'm pretty good.  

Loving:  The fact that we have a little special secret between the 4 of us right now.

Craving:  Lemon in my water.  Fruit and fresh veggies.   

Feeling: Finally back to myself! I am excited about meal prep and cooking and all the things I love and that just makes my heart happy.  Also loving getting outside for some runs with CT.  Now that I feel good, I've been running with the stroller again.

Looking Forward: Spending as much one on one time with CT as possible.  Date nights with my husband.  A family vacation to the beach over spring break.  Oysters, ribs, and wings this weekend with our best friends.  And our Gender Reveal on 3/12.

Best Moment(s): This week has been a little hectic with some late(r) nights, but I enjoyed 2 nights out with girlfriends this week.  One to a big consignment sale where I was able to sneak away and get some things for baby without getting caught.  And another to a great speaker with some of the coaches on my team.


Feel free to leave me some love. It makes my heart smile.
