16 Weeks - Pregnancy #4

Each Monday, I'd like to do a highlights post, including a picture, summarizing the differences in my pregnancy from week to week.  I totally "grabbed" this idea from Kelly.  I've done this with my three previous pregnancies (you can go to the search box and type in "pregnancy," or "week #" if you're interested in how my previous pregnancies progressed), as well, and I still think it is a great way to jot down the things that I don't want to forget later on.  

Pregnancy Highlights:

How far along:  16 weeks 

Size of baby:  This little one is 4 1/2 inches long (top of head to tip of tailbone) and the size of an avocado.

Total weight gain/loss:  I'll see my OB this week, so I'll know how much I've gained this pregnancy so far. I was up 5 lbs at my last appointment. 

Maternity clothes:  mostly I wear spaghetti strap shirts, loose skirts or summery dresses, and now these cute and super stretchy/comfy/cute shorts I got on sale last week!

Gender:  still no clue!

Movement:  I have felt a few flutters here and there :)

Sleep:  Sleep has been ok. Not great, but not terrible. 

What I miss:  My coffee milk each morning, having a modicum of energy, and not having indigestion every day. 

Cravings:  ice cream, the occasional Dr. Pepper with lemon, peanut butter crackers, cherry limeades, pickles

Symptoms:  hunger, exhaustion, indigestion 

Exercise:  I've been doing squats and yoga stretches 4-6 times a week. I've also started to add in walking but that seems to only take place once or twice a week. 

Best moment this week:  hmmm. I can't remember anything super remarkable. I guess getting those shorts because I can now wear shorts that don't have to be unzipped/unbuttoned to be comfortable :)

16 Weeks (taken yesterday before church) - The Husband gives me a VERY hard time when taking my picture each week. I look at him, and he wants me to look at the camera. It's an ongoing struggle. :(


  1. And, you looked very cute in those teal lace shorts this morning on our walk! Every pregnant lady should look so cute! Love you.
