4 months down

I'm 16 weeks and 1 day today, and feeling great. Most of my bad symptoms are gone and I occasionally make it through a whole night without getting up to pee! I'm starting to really enjoy being pregnant although sometimes I forget that I am! It's funny too - I guess I'm not showing that much (even though I think I am!) - but people at work have known that I'm pregnant for a while and they keep asking me, "are you sure? You don't look pregnant!" I told them to give me a month or so.

So yeah, I might not look super preggo yet, but believe me I'm struggling to get dressed in the morning with only 3 pairs of pants that fit! Anyway, I'm super happy to be at 16 weeks. Counting down the days to the ultrasound - 17 more days and I'll know if this little baby is a little dude or a little princess. Cannot wait!!

Weekly update:

How Far Along: 16 weeks
Total Weight Gain: About 5 lbs
Maternity Clothes: Mostly pre-pregnancy stuff, but some maternity jeans and I do love my belly band!
Sleep: Still great. 8-9 hours a night!
Best Moment(s) this week: Getting some great deals at yard sales and going to the zoo this past weekend.
Gender: Ultrasound is scheduled for Sept. 17
Movement: Don't think so yet.
Food Craving: Mac and cheese and chocolate milk!
Symptoms: Occasional headaches and weird stretching/pulling in my belly.
What I miss: Nothing!
What I am looking forward to: A three day weekend!

If I take a belly pic this week, I'll add it to this post. I'm in my pj's now, or I'd take one! Oh and shout out to my friends Mindy and Derek who are also having a baby early next year!! So excited to have friends to share this journey with (even though they are faaar away in South Carolina)! Congrats guys!
