Baby Striclyn · pregnancy week to week

16 weeks

16 weeks, 1 day

How far along are you?  16 weeks! (October 7- October 13)

What’s new with baby this week?  Baby is the size of an avocado this week (my favorite!!!) and little bones are forming in his or her ears!  Also, baby is getting eyelashes, eyebrows, head hair and taste buds this week.

How much are you showing this week?  Well, I never really stopped showing after I had Tylee, so it seems like I’m much bigger at this week 16 than I was when Tylee was 16 weeks.

How are you feeling?  Feeling good! This pregnancy has been pretty easy so far.

Any new pregnancy symptoms?  Heart burn 😦

Sleep?  Sleep is still good!  Just like last time, I get up to pee a lot, but it hasn’t been bad yet.

Miss anything?  My mom’s excitement for new babies.

Movement?  Yes!  We actually felt this baby move really early…even earlier than Tylee–and she was quite the little soccer player in there!  Jonathan has only felt this baby move once, but I’m starting to be able to feel him or her more regularly and it’s my favorite!

Food cravings?  Nothing weird!  Early on I really wanted fried pickles, but that’s probably because I thoroughly enjoy those anyway 🙂

Anything making you queasy or sick?  This week, we dissected a deer heart in my phlebotomy class and let’s just say I tried to avoid the smell as much as possible!

Pregnancy brain?  Not bad this week.

Belly button in or out?  In

Wedding rings on or off?  On

Do you think you’re having a boy or a girl?  This week we were leaning toward boy!

Worst moment this week?  I’ve been crying a lot this week because it’s getting closer and closer to the one year mark since I lost my mom.  This week at school we learned CPR and all I could think about is how they did CPR on my mom for 45 minutes before calling it quits.

Best moment this week?  I got out of class early one day and my sweet Jonathan took me on a Chuy’s date while our sweet friend Natalie took care of Tylee!

Happy or moody most of the time?  Probably moody.

Looking forward to anything?  We find out baby’s gender at the end of the month!!!

Updates from Daddy or big sister Tylee?  Daddy is eager to find out if this baby is a boy or a girl!  Tylee is working on sitting up with no help and giving gentle pats so she’s ready to play with little sibling without being rough.  Oh and this week, Tylee has starting laughing out of no where when she’s just playing on the floor and it is adorable!!
