15 and 16 Weeks

Both weeks in one since I never posted last week. Tisk tisk.

The bump looks bigger with a shirt over it. I need to get a good picture from the side at the end of the day--it's shocking how much I grow throughout the day.

I ask Parker where my baby is and she points to my belly.

Parker gives the baby lots of kisses too.

How far along: 16 weeks

Total weight gain: 119.6, up 7lbs. I'm pretty sure the scale lied to me this morning. I was up 4.5lbs at my midwife appointment on Friday so a 2 1/2lb gain over the weekend seems high. Though it was Easter weekend...damn bunny and all the delicious chocolate you bring.

Maternity Clothes: Based on how big my stomach is already I'll need to buy some new shirts stat

Best moment this week: Hearing the hearbeat at my midwife appointment!

Movement: not too much this week

Food Cravings: thanks to my coworker, Crunch Crisp bars

Sleep: Still trying to get around 9 to 10 hours each night

Milestones: Baby can yawn, is about 4 to 5 inches long, and weighs 3oz

Girl or boy: I have no clue. The baby's heartbeat was 138bpm on Friday and that's considered low according to the Old Wives Tales. I was sure that Parker's was always in the 150s and above but nope, at the same time Parker's heartbeat was 144bpm. Not that any of this accurately predicts gender but I'm looking for anything since I'm dying to know!

Random: I'm taking the day off tomorrow to hang with the babe. Hoping for fabulous weather so we can frolic outside.


How far along: 15 weeks

Total weight gain: 117.4, up 5lbs. I'm on the exact same weight gain streak still as I was with Parker--weird.

Maternity Clothes: I think that I'll be in maternity pants soon. I'm currently rocking my work pants completley unbuttoned and unzippered, held up only by the fabulous belly band.

Best moment this week: I'm feeling a lot better. I even tackled painting Parker and #2's bathroom this past weekend. Pics to come of the super bright orange room.

Movement: a little bit here and there this week. I usually feel baby move when I'm laying in bed for the night. Another night owl is on our way.

Food Cravings: Not too many cravings this week. I did make a huge batch of my famous chocolate chip cookies which will inevitebly end up as poundage on my thighs.

Sleep: I need a little less sleep now, but still around 9 hours each night

Milestones: eyelashes and eyebrows are growing. The head now rests on the neck. The eyes are still shut but baby can now sense light.

Girl or boy: I'm still feeling boy

Random: Looking forward to my midwife appointment next week!


  1. I'm dying to know what you're having so I'm sure you are going completely crazy! Btw, Parker looks adorable in the pig tails! :)
