Bump Update! 16 Weeks

How far along? 16 Weeks 4 Days

Total weight gain: Well, from the day that I got my + pregnancy test to my first doctor appointment I had lost 10 pounds. Apparently that is what happens when you puke 24/7. At my last doctor appointment I had gained 3 pounds back.

Maternity clothes? Nope, still wearing my same pants and shirts. In the last two weeks I have been starting to get the bump, now we are just waiting for the pop!

Stretch Marks? Still to early to tell, in the meantime I am lathering up with this stuff.

Here are some belly pictures, it is growing little by little:

Sleep: I am still getting up about once a night to pee. It is amazing to me how much I can possibly pee. I tend to wake up with a pretty sore back. I have always had problems with it since high school due to an injury. So I'm guessing my back is not going to enjoy me being pregnant very much. This week my uterus has grown to reach halfway between my pelvic bone and naval. I'm guessing that means my pesky little butt bone will not start to feel any better.

Best moment this week: One of my best friends is a nurse and she borrowed one of their old dopplers at her hospital for me to use. So I got to listen to the baby's heartbeat at home on Tuesday. I swear I could hear Baby R kick around in there.

Movement: No movement yet, but I am so ready for that.

Gender: Very very soon!

Labor Signs: No way, that would not be good, so thank goodness.

Belly Button in or out? It is in, it is getting wider though.

What I miss: Skin that does not look like a 13 year old during puberty. When does that glowing look come cause I am done with these pesky little pimples hanging out on my face.

Weekly Wisdom: Wear a bra at all times even if it is just a sports bra, even to bed, even my once slim B cup gets pretty heavy now.

Milestones: I finally quit getting sick in the morning last week. Up until 13 weeks I was still getting sick all day, everyday. Then it was just in the morning. Now it is a rare occasion. I can't even explain how thankful I am for that and for Zofran!

What I am looking forward to: Finding out the gender of Baby R very soon. Please don't be shy sweet baby. :)

What a cute series of baby bump pictures! That is awesome that you are not so sick anymore. My sister is expecting and has been very sick and I think they gave something very similar. Can't wait to hear what you are having. Have a great day!

Congrats on your pregnancy and thanks for stopping by my blog. Yes, I'm in the STL area and all this "wonderful" rain is really putting a damper on my running (I'm training for a half marathon!).

I love your blog. I am happy I came across it. I am pregnant too (almost 15 weeks) and religiously use Palmers. I was told anything that has Vitamin E or Coco Butter is the key. Good luck with your pregnancy.
