16 Weeks (Bump #2)

Aloha!
 
 
Total Weight Gain: No idea; I haven't stepped on a scale once while on vacation!  But since I have definitely been over-indulging here in Hawaii, I'm guessing I am going to be back to my pre-pregnancy weight with Liam (my healthy weight) real soon!

Symptoms: I've barely had any nausea while on vacation, so happy about that!  I'm slowly starting to feel this pregnancy in my back and my hips, but I've also been away from my pregnancy pillow for a week!

Movement:  I felt Liam move just after I hit 17 weeks, and there was no doubt in my mind that it was him.  I expected to feel this baby much sooner, but I still haven't yet...  Although there have been a few questionable flutters, so maybe, but I'm not convinced.

Gender Predictions:  Still thinking girl.  And we are almost completely decided on a girl name, and I have lots of girl nursery inspiration...so if this baby is a boy, it will throw me off!

Sleep?  Slightly better while on vacation (for Liam too)!  I guess we are playing so hard that we hit the sheets and are out!

Maternity Clothes:  I'm starting to belt a lot of my shirts & dresses to make them a bit more maternity friendly.  And I will definitely be purchasing some maternity jeans this week, since my pair from Liam's pregnancy are too big. 

Food Cravings/Aversions:  A big meat aversion, except for at breakfast time...bring on all the bacon!!!  Lots of cravings while in Hawaii: fish 'n chips, shaved ice, & cinnamon rolls!  And I have succumbed to each of them more than once!

Staying Active?  Barely, again!  I went for one run on the boardwalk this week, but then I realized I'd rather sip on coffee reading a book on our lanai in the mornings instead of sweating like crazy first thing when I wake up.  But next week I should be back in the gym and hopefully finally getting in 4-5 workouts a week!

Cries: None.  Vacation makes for a happy girl!

Liam's Thoughts:  We actually haven't talked about the baby much this week, since we've been so busy.  But we have told Liam the girl name we are considering and it is too adorable to hear it out of his mouth!

Looking Forward to: Midwife appointment and scheduling our gender scan!

  4. You look so good!!! I had a total meat aversion with Cam, but this time, I am ok (so far). I hope the nausea is gone for good...16 weeks is long enough!
