Little Bit Bit: 16 Weeks

6 Mar

Hard to believe how fast this pregnancy is going! I think it’s safe to say that I’m feeling much better these days. I still have a few spurts here and there, but its definitely manageable and it’s been almost two weeks since I’ve thrown up! At our appointment last week my doctor made a comment about how I’m looking much less green! To which I responded, “bout time!”

I’m remembering how much I loved being pregnant with Lakyn. Call me crazy, but I’m one of “those” women. Even with all the nausea and sickness, I loved it. I so enjoyed watching my tummy grow every week and I absolutely loved holding my belly and feeling her move all around inside! Which brings me to my next point…

I’m feeling Bit Bit move! I was pretty sure that I’ve been feeling movement for about the past week, but this past Saturday sealed the deal. It’s crazy how I went a week thinking, “could that have been the baby, I think maybe that was the baby,” to “Oh, THAT was definitely the baby!”. I can’t think of a better feeling! LBB is most active in the evenings, around 10pm when I’m laying on the couch getting caught up on my DVR. 10 pm was Lakyn’s favorite time, too. These two are so similar already! :) Brandon keeps trying to feel Bit Bit move as well, but nothing yet. I’m sure it’ll take another couple of weeks.

At our appointment last week Bit Bit’s heart rate was 155 and everything is looking great. My mysterious rash has cleared up (we’re chalking that one up to a reaction to my prescription I was taking), and I seem to be turning the corner on this vicious nausea ride. Yippee!

Please forgive me for not wearing a tighter shirt in the picture. This one was just so comfy and I wasn’t changing for the sake of a picture! My excuse for the sweater? I didn’t shave my armpits. You’re welcome for sparing you the beauty.

Also, I apologize for how tired I look in all of these pictures. It’s like 9:30 when we take them. If the bags under my eyes and the exhaustion are any indication, 9:30 should become my new bedtime.

How far along? 16 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: I finally gained a pound! (Even though the scale at the doctor’s office says I’m down 2 more pounds. I know it’s wrong though.) +1 lb! Wahoo!!!
Maternity clothes? Slowly starting to wear some. I bought a new pair of maternity jeans that I’ve been rockin’ lately.
Stretch marks? No
Sleep: Waking up to pee every night at 3 am. That and trying to reteach myself to sleep on my side which is currently resulting in lots of tossing and turning.
Best moment this week: Feeling Bit Bit move!
Miss Anything? Being able to do anything I want without having to think about it. There’s a 5k coming to KC this summer that I would LURVE to do (the KC Color Run! So awesome!), but alas, I’m with child. It’ll have to wait until next year.
Movement: YES! It’s the best!
Food cravings: Cereal, especially Honey Bunches of Oats. Sweets are toying with me. They sound so good and smell so good, but I can only take a couple bites before I start to feel sick. Still any beverage.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Too many sweets, yellow cheeses, and cooking chicken.
Have you started to show yet: Yep
Gender prediction: I’ve gone back and forth so many times. I just don’t have a clue.
Belly Button in or out? In
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy!
Looking forward to: Finding out what this little one is in a few more weeks!
