Bump Update: Week 16 & 17


It has been a crazy week so I am combining weeks this post. We were busy having fun on our vacation and sorta was unplugged. Also, we have been in desperate need of sleep. Our little girl’s 2 year old molars are coming in and it has been a horrible week with that. It’s just the typical life of being a parent and you go into survival mode. Hoping for sleep and just getting the basics done around the house to get by until everything clears up. Which, I can happily say it is getting better now!

  

How far along? 16 weeks!

Total weight gain: 7 lbs

Maternity clothes? Still wearing my maternity/nursing sleep bras to bed, sleeping with my belly wedge, Bellabands, hair ties for pants, and I’ve worn one maternity shirt.

Stretch marks? Nope

Best moment this week: Vacation!! Also, we had a blast celebrating our little girl’s 2nd birthday at a local waterpark. It was so much fun and she is such a fish in the water!

Miss anything? Coffee… I’m a total coffee addict

Movement: Possibly? I feel pressure sometimes then I have to pee. I assume its the baby pushing on my bladder. haha

Food cravings: Ice cream

Gender: A mystery!

Labor signs: No.

Symptoms: Headaches and I got sick on my hubby and I’s day trip to Hershey. We stopped at Troeg’s so my hubby could get a beer there and we planned on having an appetizer then get dinner at this place we usually go to in Hershey. But… I had no appetite after I vomitted in the bathroom stall. It could have been the strong smell of hops, the appetizer, the pop that had 40g of sugar (I RARELY drink pop and thought I’d be adventurous since it was caffeine free), or just a mixture of all three. It was the first time that I threw up the entire pregnancy and I hope it doesn’t happen again.

Wedding rings on or off? On.

Happy or moody most of the time: Happy

Looking forward to: My upcoming 20 week ultrasound!

Workouts: Walking, gardening, and playing with my toddler.

Other: Hoping my little girl gets some sleep so my hubby and I can get some sleep! I had to leave work on Tuesday evening because we both haven’t slept in 2 days and I did not feel well at all.

Stretch marks? Nope

Best moment this week: Getting sleep!!

Miss anything? Coffee… surely needed it when our little girl wasn’t sleeping.

Movement: Still questionable… I am anxiously awaiting thought because I cannot wait to feel flutters and popcorn feeling.

Food cravings: Salty things

Gender: A mystery!

Labor signs: No.

Symptoms: Nothing major. Most is related to lack of sleep which is amplified by being pregnant.

Wedding rings on or off? On.

Happy or moody most of the time: Moody because in our house we all need sleep!

Looking forward to: My upcoming 20 week ultrasound!

Workouts: Walking, gardening, and playing with my toddler.

Other: On Wednesday, I couldn’t take it any longer so I made an appointment with our daughter’s pediatrician. Her 2 year old molars are coming in and we were advised to give her children’s ibuprofen before bed. That helped and we got some sleep. But, trying to get her to go to sleep has gotten worse and she wants us sitting holding her hand all night if she had the choice. We are practicing tough love and staying in there while she goes to sleep but we are gradually moving away from her crib each night, which the doctor recommended. Hopefully it works!
