16 Weeks!

January 29, 2016 No Comments

This pregnancy is seriously flying by! Between school, work, and being mom to a busy toddler, the weeks just cruise on by…no pictures this week….I haven’t found the time to take and cute one and I wanted to get this posted. Check out my Instagram for picture updates from this week @wcreamandsugar
 
How far along: 16 weeks, just about 4 months

Weight gain: None, I’ve actually lost 1 lb
How many weeks to go: 24 weeks
Due date: July 9th 2016
Symptoms:  Morning All day sickness is finally gone and I’m getting that 2nd trimester energy boost. Not feeling as sensitive or moody either. My sniffer is still sensitive though, and too much of any smell can make me gag. The other thing that acts up my gag reflex is the cold air, so I just get to the car or inside as fast as I can
New updates: Had a prenatal appointment Wednesday and this little one was being a stinker. My midwife had a hard time picking up their heartbeat on the Doppler (cue panic). After forever 4 or 5 minutes, she was able to find it, but it was quiet because the baby was hiding behind the placenta. It was there, and strong about 160 bpm, but it didn’t help this mama’s anxiety any
Cravings: Fruity candy (skittles, sour patch kids, gummy worms etc..)
Aversions: Depends on the day, honestly. I couldn’t stand eggs during Kal’s pregnancy but I have enjoyed them this time. I’m not crazy about eating anything super heavy but as long as I eat slowly, most things are fine
Looking forward to: Feeling more movement, I’ve been feeling some random flutters but I cannot wait until the movement becomes stronger and more consistent
Missing: sleep and being able to eat an entire meal in one sitting
Wedding Rings On/Off:  On
Belly button: In
Baby: Size of an avocado, about 4 in long and 3.5 oz. Baby H starts to hear momma’s voice this week and is starting to grow hair, lashes, and eyebrows
Feeling: Some days are worse than others, but for the most part I feel good
Movement: Very random flutters
Sleep: Takes FOREVER to fall asleep. Its not discomfort or anxiety, I just can seem to shut down. Once I fall asleep, I sleep pretty hard. I’ve been having tons of vivid dreams the last few weeks.

  • When I picked "Be Brave" as my word for this year, I didn't realize I was asking the universe for an actual challenge. (And based on what I've gathered from many friends, I wasn't alone)  But, as the year comes to a close, I feel like I met my goal. And while there were some wonderful moments of this year, like starting a new job, growing my breastfeeding support group, and becoming an aunty twice more. But my anxiety was worse than it's ever been (admitting that isn't fun) and watching my mother in law battle brain cancer and Grandpa fight through a massive heart attack, has been hard. Needless to say, I'm ready for a new start with these little humans and their daddy.  See ya later 2018 👋

2019, please be kind to us 🙏

  • My top 9 of 2018 was an honest look at Motherhood. This was the year I found my voice, took opportunities outside of my comfort zone, and truly met my goal of being brave. I'm so glad and grateful you are all following along. Excited to see what 2019 has in store. Happy New Year!

  • I have been pretty open about my struggles with anxiety and depression. It's not fun or easy, and I often wish it wasn't part of my story, but it is. And through sharing, I can only hope that even one of you feels less alone. If you need a little extra support, I share daily affirmations in my stories every morning, I hope you'll follow along. 
Here's to today being a good day, even in it's imperfections ❤️ #musingsonmotherhood #thisismotherhood #this_is_postpartum #dailyaffirmations
  • Date night with my favorite guy in my favorite booties. These seriously go with any outfit and they are so comfy! 
What's your favorite date night activity?

  • Back to reality today and totally experiencing a holiday "hangover" We will be cleaning out and choosing toys and clothes to donate, since the kids got new stuff for Christmas. It's important to me that my kids be involved in this process, as it is their stuff and I want them to learn the value of service. Not taking our decorations down yet, I'm not ready to let the twinkle lights go ✨✨ #musingsonmotherhood #lighttheworld
  • Wishing you a very Merry Christmas. May your heart and home be full of love ❤️🎄
