9-12 week baby bumps, 16 week update

So I have been awful at updating my baby bump pics to this blog and I have even missed a few weeks of taking pics. I actually do have some more pics from more recent weeks, but I left that memory card at school. I am actually 16 weeks now, so yeah- a little behind. Fun fact about these pictures- my hubby usually takes them and getting the camera to focus in room is a joke. The lighting is terrible and he is just not a camera person to begin with. So excuse the awkward smiles at times. Also, please excuse the terrible hair- a lot of these are taken after I have fallen asleep on the couch and then remember- OH YEAH- the weekly bump pic!

I am going to go ahead and do my little journal for 16 weeks, but I promise to post pics later:-)

Pregnancy Highlights

How far along? 16 weeks and 3 days

Size of the baby?  avocado. I ate one today. Delish!

Maternity Clothes? Definitely. I can only wear regular sweaters, jackets, and socks.

Gender? 2 weeks until we find out!! Recently my feeling of it being a boy has changed to I HAVE NO CLUE.

Movement?  Yes! Especially within five minutes of laying down. Still not enough for T to feel, but definitely getting stronger.

Sleep?  WIERD dreams, up once a night to pee. And some nights of tossing and turning- but mostly sleeping through with the once up to BR.

Cravings? Each day it changes. Everything from hot dogs, corn dogs, ice cream sandwiches, to avocados and PB&Js. Nothing weird. Except the hot dog thing- I normally hate hotdogs. I have more food aversions than normal. I am not nearly as hungry as I thought I would be- I eat about as much as I did before I was pregnant.

Symptoms?  Headaches. Everyday. I still get a little nauseous at night, but my energy is coming back some what. Lots of growing belly pains.

Best Moment of the Week?  Hearing the heart beat for the second time- it was so strong! And picking out a crib!

High Risk factor: In two weeks we should find out if I should have any issues with a shortened cervics- but everything has ben going very smooth and the doctor reassured us at our last appointment it will be very rare for me to have a problem.
