16 Weeks Bumpdate

16 Weeks
How Far Along: 16 weeks

Size of the Baby: An avocado

Maternity Clothes: I did wear a pair of new maternity pants yesterday, but even so was asked how I still managed to fit in my pre-pregnancy clothes by a friend whose pregnant and less along than I am. So I guess that's a plus. Although I did admit to her that they were actually maternity.

Nursery: Still no progress here.

Stretch Marks: Still none.

Sleep: It's pretty much back to normal.

Movement: Still none.

Cravings: I could really go for a bean & cheese burrito from Taco Bell. Which is funny in a way since I can't remember the last time I had one before the pregnancy. But since I've been pregnant I've already been there twice, and will likely be there later this week.

Symptoms: None really, although brushing my teeth gets me about once a week or so. Also I actually had a the mardi gras salad at Voodoo BBQ recently, and almost got sick over a piece of off-texture mango.

What I Miss: Waking up on a weekend and making a coffee in my Keurig. Although I have made hot chocolate in it as a substitute, but it's not quite the same.

Looking Forward To: I'd love to feel the baby move especially since everyone seems to asking me about it lately.

  1. I bet in the next few weeks you will start to feel the flutters. I think I was around 17 or 18 weeks, but still didn't really know what it was. Not until after 24-25 did I realize they were actually baby.

    1. That's what everyone keeps saying, that you probably won't notice them at first. Which makes sense. But still... I'm more than ready! Ha!

  2. I hope you can feel the baby move soon!

    One of my SILs was able to wear her regular pants until around 20 weeks because she is pretty tall. I don't know how tall you are, but you look tall in photos so maybe that will be the case for you? I think you are looking great!

  3. I just started wearing maternity pants this past week(week 18). I still fit into my others but the maternity are much more comfortable for me at work.
    I felt the flutters starting around week 17. Barely perceptible but there for sure. :)

    1. That's just it, maternity clothes are so much more comfortable. Yes, I can still make it into some items, but they don't fit the way they used to. But I don't want to spend all my time in maternity clothes since I'm sure several months from now I'll be completely over them!

  4. I wore regular clothes with Sam until 16 weeks (I didn't have them earlier since I got them from my SIL) and then with Rachel I was wearing them at 9 weeks! Awesome.

    Also, I think I remember definitively feeling Sam move around 19 weeks. Rachel I felt a little earlier but that's only because I knew what I was feeling then.

  5. You look great! I just packed up my maternity clothes the other day! I haven't worn them, but were still hanging in my closet...I was also a late show-er, and was in regular clothes until about 20 weeks!

  6. Ah, feeling the baby move was my favorite part of pregnancy :) Your bump is very cute :)

  7. You look amazing! Glad it's going so well :)

  8. You look great! I can definitely see the bump starting to grow when you post all those pictures side by side like that. So exciting!

  9. You look great! I am 16 weeks too and could swear I felt some flutters this week but I'm not 100% sure.. cant wait until its more obvious movement!
