3rd Pregnancy: Week 16
How far along? 16 weeks
Baby is the size of a: Avocado
Total weight gain: I really need to replace the batteries in my scale!
Waist Measurement: 33 inches...not sure how I got smaller other than the fact that I have been bloating to elephant-size at night. In the morning, I am tremendously smaller.
Maternity clothes? I've been wearing a few pants, but they are actually a little big. I'm considering hot washing them to shrink them a bit, but I'm sure I would regret that in a few weeks.
Stretch marks? Nope
Sleep: I've actually gotten lots of sleep this week. Well, after getting only 30 minutes last Thursday due to be calling to a birth. I went to bed at 6:30pm and then 8pm the next night. Even though I've had plenty of sleep, the quality has been great. I've woken up with headaches each morning, which is no fun.
Best moment this week: Witnessing a birth! It still never gets old. Even at 3 o'clock in the morning.
Movement: I haven't felt any movement this week.
Food cravings: I still have the biggest urge to eat Thai food. I've been resisting my favorite restaurant, Thai Pepper and eating, not so healthy, 10 cents Ramen noodles with egg. Bless. But it is saving us a fortune.
Miss Anything? I am really just missing my energy level. With low energy, I haven't had much ambition to blog, take any pictures, or pursue anything beyond the bare minimum in my business.
Gender: We still don't know.
Labor Signs: No
Symptoms: I've still had morning sickness, but mainly the headaches have been torture. I've had a sinus cold all week, so that's not fun. There isn't much I can do to shake up the mucus and my throat doesn't seem to get any better, but I know slowly but surely I'm getting better.
Belly Button in or out? Still in.
Wedding rings on or off? On
