Hi all! I was looking over the 16-week bumpdate from my last pregnancy, and while this pregnancy felt totally different in the beginning, it’s fun to see how some things just don’t change. In this case, I’m talking preg acne and Pop Tarts. (One is obviously much better than the other!)
How far along? 16 weeks
Baby’s size? Avocado (4.5 inches)
Total weight gain/loss: About 8 lbs
Maternity clothes? I wear maternity jeans now, but everything else is the same.
Sleep: Sleep is very hit-or-miss. It’s getting hard to get comfy, though Ethan and I both had two great naps this weekend.
Best moment this week: I could swear that Ethan tried to say, “I love you” a couple days ago. I had just told him a few times that I love him, and he said “Ba ba ba” with the same tone, inflection, and speed as I was saying “I love you.” I know it’s a stretch, but we had a moment.
Miss Anything? Two weekends ago I missed beer because we met friends at a brewery, but it has been off my radar since then.
Movement: Just a tiny bit – baby is teasing me!
Food cravings: Last week I was craving Pop Tarts like mad. I fought the craving and ended up eating everything in my house BUT what I really wanted. You better believe I picked some up at the store this weekend, though I guess the craving has passed since I haven’t opened the box yet. (Yup, I spent the extra $ on all-natural foods and some organic produce, yet these still found their way into my shopping cart. ha)
Symptoms: Great hair, bad skin, strong emotions, bloating, and lethargy (though I do have much more energy than I did a few weeks ago)
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy most of the time but moods have their way of swinging
Looking forward to: My next dr appointment later today – love baby checkups!
I wanted to share my latest recipe with you, but I’m not sure that it’s quite “blog worthy.” The family enjoyed it (even Ethan), but it needs a little tweaking that I don’t quite have time to do. In short, it was soba noodles with red cabbage, broccoli, sugar snap peas, edamame, and a homemade peanut sauce. Yum!!
