Baby C - 16 weeks

It's time for another Baby C update.

While the first trimester seemed to go by rather slowly, it's crazy that it's already been 4 weeks since my last set of bump pictures (here). Baby C is starting to grow at a faster rate and pants are starting to fit a bit snugger! 

Symptoms: Feeling great these last couple weeks! Week 14 hit a rough patch with some serious morning sickness but knock on wood, no issues since then. No headaches and no fatigue beyond just being tired from long workdays thankfully. I do not have time for fatigue these days.

Workouts have been great too. It felt amazing to hit 4 miles on the treadmill last weekend! Yes, I stopped to snap a pic. I was so pumped to feel so good. I made sure to use the foam roller on my hips once home to help prevent/reduce some of the soreness I've been experiencing from running on a treadmill. 

Food aversions: None really! Which is great. It feels great to be incorporating fruit and veggies into my daily diet these days. Don't get me wrong, I realized this past Sunday I didn't eat a single veggie...but I wouldn't say there were any aversions, it just sort of happened.

Food cravings: Recent cravings have included burgers from B.Good (only once but omg so good), bagels (still), Chopped Italian salad, ice cream, iced coffee.

I'm up to about 4-5 lbs in weight gain which is totally fine by me. Making sure our little love is growing!

I don't know the last time I slept through the entire night. The say the urge/need to pee lessens in the second trimester as you start showing and the Baby moves outward a little bit, away from the bladder. Still waiting....I swear Baby C was sitting on my bladder the other day at work! It was a bit ridiculous.

Lastly, I've been struggling to figure out how I want to document my pregnancy beyond the occasional bump pictures. This is definitely the younger child in me, but I want to make sure that whatever I do for baby #1, I can do for the rest of the children we choose to have. I found this journal recently and thought it would be perfect. Allowing me to capture small snapshots of each day throughout the pregnancy and well into the Baby's first years. I also plan on putting together a baby book once they are here, but this quick snapshot journal is much more realistic for me to keep up with. It's been fun!

Stay tuned... pregnancy wardrobe updates and nursery ideas to come over the next few weeks! And of course, more Baby updates.

  1. You have a cute little bump! I am with you on the first trimester taking forever. I just hit 20 weeks on Sunday and it suddenly feels like it is flying by.

    I am with you on going to the bathroom constantly. I too thought that it leveled off during the second trimester, but I haven't experienced it. I go at least once during the night, sometimes twice. If I am randomly woken up by the dogs or my husband or something, I HAVE to get up and go too.

    And a chopped Italian salad sounds phenomenal. I just read someone else's post about craving cheeseburgers, so now I want a cheeseburger and an Italian salad!
