How far along? 16 weeks
Size of the baby? About 4 1/2 inches long, weighing about 3 ounces–about the size of an avocado
Maternity Clothes? Shorts and capris, but everything else is still my regular clothes!
Gender? We find out on September 27! 4 weeks away!
Movement? I am beginning to feel little tiny movements, and the baby was going crazy today while they were trying to get the heartbeat.
Sleep? I am sleeping pretty well, but I still feel like I can sleep a lot. I think my family is trying to prepare me for the baby. One night this past week, I woke up to go to the bathroom at 1am, Sarah Ann came to our room at 2 am and wanted someone to “lay with her for a few minutes,” Reece woke me up at 4am yelling “Mommy! Mommy! I need more tovers (covers),” and then my alarm went off at 5:45 to wake Jeffrey up for sermon prep. I took a good nap that day!
Cravings? Ice water, crushed ice, mexican food
Symptoms? Still a little bit of nausea and sleepiness, but my energy is coming back and I’m feeling more human again! I also want to eat all the time!
What I miss? Nothing really!
Milestones? We are well into the 2nd trimester, and I’m so excited to be feeling better for the fall! It my most favorite season!
What I am nervous about? Reece is moving to his big boy bed tomorrow–he’s going to love it! So, we are beginning the process of getting ready for the baby to arrive!
What I’m excited about? Fall, football, and lots of fun with friends and family! And this long Labor day weekend!
