Southern Baby: 16 weeks

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 16 Weeks

Size of baby: 4 1/2  inches long, crown to rump, and weighs in about 3 1/2 ounces...about the size of an avocado

Maternity Clothes: Wearing a few maternity shirts because my regular ones feel too short. I have bought a pair of jeans and black pants a size bigger, but have to wear a Bella Band to keep them up (for now! ha)


Gender: Ultrasound has been set for the first week of April!


Movement: After a long day, when I lay really still and flat on my back in bed I can feel the baby kind of balling up on my left side. 

Sleep: Have had WEIRD dreams every night this week!  Still no "boy" or "girl" dreams, but my SIL had one!  It was a girl and we named her Sasha Ann...ummmmm, no.


What I miss: Exercising really hard. I am still trying to do something active EVERY day and still taking weight training classes at my awesome gym, but I reach exhaustion much faster now. I figure something is better than nothing!


Cravings: Nothing now...I ate my way through the first trimester so I am satisfied and trying to slow my roll!

I don't want to forget...Jackson asked me what color our baby was going to be...was it gonna look like us? 

This picture was taken late this afternoon after a loooong day.  Took boys to school, met Heath to drive to Gilbert to pick out stone for our fireplace hearthstone, Home Depot, picked boys up, back to house to deliver stuff I bought at HD, stayed at house to watch my tub being installed and talk to our friend Matt from Avista, and then home for baths, supper and bedtime!  This is one tired MAMA!
