15 & 16 weeks pregnant!

I am officially 16 weeks and 5 days right now but I am going to take you back to my belly 15 and 16 weeks. I feel like now everyday I can see "little" changes in my belly. It is really miraculous. I am waiting, just patiently waiting to feel something! I keep reading that the gas bubbles I am feeling, are little baby kicks, but to be honest - I am pretty certain its just gas...
I defiantly turned my body slightly and its hard to see my belly - but its very similar to 16 weeks...I think I just wanted to "feel skinny" still.
Feeling cute, and holding my belly has become my "new thang". Hurry up and kick me gummy!

How far along? 16 weeks 5 days. Feeling great!

Baby Size: An avocado - guacamole baby! Side note - I have been craving Mexican food like crazy!!

Total weight gain: I still don't know. I think I am avoiding looking at a scale, maybe I should - I might need a little encouragement.

Maternity clothes? Yes! I purchased a bunch of stuff from ASOS maternity. I am also loving kimonos in all shapes and sizes - they seem to be the most comfortable and easy maternity wear to date.

Stretch marks? No, heavens NO! I am diligently putting cocoa butter on my entire body twice a day!! I smell great!

Sleep: I have found the sweet spot in my sleeping. I do wake up about 2 times a night to pee. That pesky pee...but my sleep has been substantially better than my first trimester.

Best moment this week: We went to our friends wedding over the weekend and the beautiful bride asked to feel my baby bump. It was my first "ask", and most likely will be the last time I let someone. But she was the bride - and I couldn't say no. 
here are a few pics of the wedding! 
Miss Anything? Alcohol - in general. I got some weird looks while sniffing Brandon's drinks at the wedding. I mean - its not nice to stare at the pregnant girl sniffing alcohol; there is nothing wrong with it people! 

Movement: NO - I am waiting, patiently.

Food cravings: French fries (which I had once this week!), Mint Chocolate chip ice cream, also Mexican food - which I have yet to indulge in...

Anything making you queasy or sick: No not at all. I am eating pretty normal, which I am very thankful for.

Gender: No...I think we should have our test scheduled after end of next week.

Labor Signs: I mean come on...NO.

Symptoms: I am having small pains in my stomach when I sit in the car too long, and very severe migraines. I have always had them - but they are SO much worse right now. I had to get my doctor to fill a baby safe prescription for me, which has helped a little to keep me functioning.

Belly Button in or out? In! I removed my belly button ring which I have had since I was about 19 years old and never took out - it was beyond time.

Wedding rings on or off? On, everything is totally normal on that front! 

Mood: Great! I am feeling so good. I am feeling more like myself; which is nice.

Looking forward to: Gummy growing, along with my bump. This - I feel is the fun part. Its coming I am sure of it!



  1. Migraines are the worst! I get them 2-3 times a week! I hope you start feeling better soon. And your little bump!!!! So cute!

  2. You are so adorable! I love your hair, it makes me want to cut mine!! So sorry about your migraines, hopefully the new medicine helps with that. The wedding looks like so much fun, wedding season is definitive picking up. We have 4 to attend this summer! Can't wait to follow along with your belly progress :)

  3. Oh so fun! My little lady did not let me feel her move until the 19th week! The day I turned 19 weeks I felt the very first movements. I hope gummy lets you feel him or her sooner than later!!


I love hearing from my readers, you all brighten my day with your comments! I can't wait to get to know you all better!
