Le Baby Progress...Week 16!

Tuesday, October 4, 2011

How far along? 16 weeks, 3 days...165 days to go!
Size of the peanut? An avocado--maybe that is why I am craving guacamole this week!
Maternity Clothes? I stumbled upon a few more fall/winter staple pieces this weekend while perusing the aisles of Target...if I can find the Liz Lange line in XS, I have to buy it because the size is few and far between. Mostly just wearing looser fitting dresses with leggings and boots, as of now though.
Weight Gain? Total of 6 pounds so far. I'm getting better with dealing with this aspect of the pregnancy, too. I'm back on the workout train and as long as I spend time doing cardio and stretching daily, I feel so much better.
Stretch Marks? I don't want to jinx myself, but no. I've got all the oils, lotions, and potions I need. Jeff can't help but to laugh every night when I do this new ritual.
Gender? It appears as though the majority of you think it's a girl...just like what the family says. Very interesting! I still say boy, but obviously the most important thing is a healthy baby. 2 weeks from today we head to the ultrasound center to find out if Baby Stoneking is a he or a she...I can't believe it's so close already.
Movement? This is what I am anxiously waiting for!
Sleep? Benny {my prego Boppy body pillow} has been retired the past week and I seem to actually be sleeping better. I've adjusted to sleeping on my side and it's not so bad anymore...getting a full night's sleep has made me feel like a new woman!
Food Cravings? Like I mentioned previously--guacamole and ANYTHING pumpkin. I may have had store bought pumpkin pie last night for dinner ;)
What I Miss? Bladder control, being able to jump out of the bed quickly, having control of my emotions, and running...I'm still walking and doing the elliptical as well as lifting light weights, but I miss running outside, especially in this pretty fall weather
Symptoms? Fatigue, crazy eating habits, and my stomach is itching all the time!
Best Moment of the Week? I finally LOOK pregnant. I had someone ask me the other day if I was expecting and though some would find that to be rude, I was so happy I didn't look like I had one too many beers...the bump has made its debut!

Here is me this morning...my photographer {AKA Jeff} had to leave
early for work, so this was left up to me--not the best, but I tried!

  9. You look so adorable! I love that dress. You and my bestie are few weeks apart in your pregnancies so it's fun getting the whole thing broken done. Since we don't live in the same place, it's hard to get into ALL the details. Can't wait to hear what you are having. :)

  17. being a runner, i would die if i couldn't run. i totally understand. i've linked an article from runner's world about two pregnant marathoners. i've always heard it was OK to run during pregnancy as long as you were already running. of course, don't listen to me, listen to your dr and yourself. good luck!
