Baby#2 Bump Watch: 16 Weeks Preggers

*Originally posted April 20, 2017 on Fab . Fit . Me*

Ahhhh here we go again. I started my pregnancy updates at 26 weeks last time. Decided to start it earlier this time around. Kinda wish I had done it right from the start because so much has happened already!

What is up with Baby P #2 this week?

Apparently he/she is about to hit a growth spurt. I kinda feel like he/she already has.

Because I look like I'm 6 months pregnant. Baby is going to double its weight and add inches to their length.

Right now, Baby is about the size of an avocado: 4 1/2 inches long (head to rump) and 3 1/2 ounces.

Baby's legs are much more developed, and his/her head is more erect than it has been. The patterning of his/her scalp has begun, though his/her locks aren't recognizable yet. He/she is even started growing toenails. And there's a lot happening inside as well. For example, his/her heart is now pumping about 25 quarts of blood each day, and this amount will continue to increase as Baby P #2 develops.

What's been happening with ME this week?

Weight Gained: At my appointment on Wednesday 4/12 I was up 4 pounds from the start of this pregnancy. My midwife gave me kudos for that.

Workouts: none. I try. But I'm exhausted. Running around at work and chasing after a toddler is enough workout for me right now.

Symptoms: Tired. Sleepy. Easily annoyed by stupid people 🤣. Some nasal congestion.

Food Aversions: Still can't stand the thought of eating meat.

Food Cravings: None yet. A couple of weeks ago I was all about them fries. This week it's whatever.

Sleep: Is fine when I can get some. I average 6-7 hours of sleep a night. And then on weekends I've been taking advantage of napping when Ella naps. It's awesome.

Any Baby/Pregnancy-Related Purchases? No. We were waiting to see what we were having first before we made any real purchase. (And just so you know, we just had our gender reveal over the weekend, but won't be publishing a post till after this update).

Stretch Marks: a few pre-existing know the ones that appeared at like the very last second of my last pregnancy. But no new ones. My belly isn't that big yet.

Miss Anything?: I miss my old pre-first-pregnancy body. Period.

Belly Button In or Out? In.

Wedding Rings On or Off? On! No swelling yet!

Happy or Moody Most Of The Time? Definitely a combination of both. Happy to be alive. Moody because of annoying people. 😂

Any Movement? Yup yup. Flutters and a few thumps here and there. I love it!!!

Looking Forward To? Finally sharing the details of our gender reveal! I have yet to collect video footage that I can chop up and edit.... or try to.

As promised, here is a pic of my Bump Watch weeks 10-15.

And I'm hoping I can get a post done this weekend of our gender reveal from last weekend!

Keep your fingers crossed!
