I just started week 17, so here is my week 16 update.
How far along: 16 weeks
How big is baby: three to five ounces and the size of an avocado.
Weight gain: I thought I had gained a pound during Thanksgiving since Kira always has such great food,but I’m back down to no weight gain.
Sleep: Still sleeping on my stomach, and still needing one trip to the bathroom each night. I am also drinking a ton more water so I know that this is part of the reason that I need to go more often.
Diet/Cravings/Aversions: Nothing exciting just trying to drink a lot of water and eat more veggies.
Movement: A few here a few there which is fun, I hope that by Christmas time others can start feeling baby too.
What I’m loving: I think I’m feeling the baby move occasionally, so that is always exciting!
Symptoms: I always have itchy skin on my legs during the winter, but NEVER this bad. I used to just make sure to put lotion on in the morning, and I was good to go. Now I use coconut oil all over,but it just wasn’t cutting it on my legs. So, Kira suggested I try Aquaphor, and it does the trick, so that is wonderful.
What I’m looking forward to: Plans for Christmas time. I have been slowly working on gathering Christmas Gifts. Also, plans are coming together for my Austin baby shower, and I’m getting super excited about it!
Thoughts: Sorry for the cray cray hair in the picture, I didn’t realize how it looked until I went back to edit the photos, and I’m too lazy to have grant take more.
Let me know if you have any questions!
