I really need to take a picture of my baby bump. There is no photographic evidence of this pregnancy so far; slacker! Buuuut I will get on that...in the meantime, I found a fun little pregnancy questionnaire from this blog and I have decided to do it semi-regularly in an attempt to document pregnancy #2. (Bump pics to come...!)
How far along? 16 weeks today!
Baby's size: 4.5 inches long -- WHOA! Baby 2 is the size of an avocado already!
Sleep: Um, well, pretty awful. But it's not pregnancy induced...Scarjo has really never slept through the night. On the bright side, at least I'm pretty prepared for baby 2!!!
Maternity clothes? YES! And I have been in them for a few weeks. There are two reasons for this; first of all, who wouldn't want to wear stretchy waistbands instead of constricting buttons? Secondly, my body was like, "oh, okay, I see where this is going. BAM, let's skip right to looking 6 months pregnant!" Awesome. So, yes, please to maternity clothes.
Food cravings: PEACH RINGS!!! They are rocking my world! And Necco wafer thingys. Yummy! It's so weird because normally I am such a chocolate girl, but it's just not doing it for me anymore.
Food aversions: I can't eat anything twice. It's very strange, I think. If enough time passes (like weeks), then sometimes I can try something again.
Symptoms I have: Heartburn is pretty much it, now that the first trimester is over...that was brutal.
Doctor's appointment: Yesterday was my 16 week check-up. It was so cool because the doctor could find the heartbeat right away and she just pushed down on the right side below my belly button and I could feel the baby inside. I just thought it was my organs moving around, but nope, there's really a baby in there!!!
Movement: Not much, yet...but sometimes I am sure that I can feel movements...
Belly button: same as always!
Gender: We find out in June!
What I'm looking forward to: Finding out the gender because then we can really start getting ready for baby 2!!!!
What I miss: Not worrying about the future. I used to just know that I had endless time with just Scarlett, but now I'm trying to soak her in and get her ready to be a big sister...!
