16 Week Appt

This morning I had my 16 week appointment! Time really is flying- wohoo!!

I haven't done any updates for the other weeks, but figured I better start today or I never will! 

I still have an update planned for how the first trimester went...although I prefer not to think about it- it wasn't very kind to me! 

Second trimester has been great so far, so so so much better than the first! Thank you Jesus! 

Ok so here we go....

Total Weight Gained: Lost 2 pounds. I was really sick, but now that I am feeling better most days I am sure the weight will be packing on soon!

Sleep: Getting better now that I started sleeping with a body pillow. It's hard not to sleep on my belly anymore. My daily morning is debate is whether or not I want to get up to pee and most likely end up getting sick or if I try and hold it for when I am really ready to get up.

Maternity Clothes: Bought a pair of maternity capris and IN LOVE! I really think every pair of pants should be like this! They are so comfy! Also wearing lots of dresses.

Best Moment of the Week: Hearing the heartbeat for the first time today. We have seen it twice, but it was a new experience to hear it. {even though it felt like it was only for .3 seconds, it was amazing!} 

Food Cravings: Lots and lots of aversions, but my appetite is slowly coming back. My first official craving: granny smith apples!  I can't get enough of them! This is so not me, I never eat apples- they make my mouth and throat so itchy. They are so hitting the spot though so it's worth it! 

Aversions: Pretty much everything, but two major major aversions: 
 1. Steak  2. Wishbone Italian Dressing.     GAG!

Symptoms: Morning sickness, Car sick,  heartburn, extra hairy lol 

Movement: I don't think so. One day I thought I did, but I am not 100% sure- should be soon though!
Gender: Hopefully find out NEXT WEEK!!!!

What I miss: Not feeling sick in the car, being able to slowly wake up/relax in bed until I am ready to get up, eat deli from restaurants like Panera. But who cares- it's all SO worth it! 

What I'm looking forward to: Finding out if we are having a baby girl or baby boy! Seriously, can not wait! Hoping I will be able to use the girl clothes I already bought ;)

Weekly Wisdom: It gets better! I honestly didn't think it would, but I am finally feeling good most days. Even if I get sick in the morning, the all day nausea has disappeared. It feels awesome!

Milestones: 16 weeks and healthy heart beat! Also, I feel like I have a legit bump now and made it past the fat stage. For the most part anyways! 

{ Mr. B was so proud of himself for getting the two ducks in the picture. 
Such a talented husband, right? ;) }
