Diary Of A Pregnant Gal || Week 16

Week 16 Pregnancy
Baby is the size of an avacado!

Due Date | March 12th, 2015

Name | The name will be announced upon announcement of the gender on October 26th! If it's a girl the initials will be KEM and if it's a boy it will be MBM. Any guesses? I completely stole this idea of having you guess names from Hayley from A Beautiful Exchange. She is due a day after me and we're keeping tabs on each others pregnancy and I loved how she teased with her baby name initials! 

Feeling | Amazing! We heard baby's heartbeat yesterday and it was music to my ears. He/she was wiggling all around running away from the detector so it was pretty entertaining.

Hormones | No tears this week! Oh well, unless I count the bawling session I had while watching "The Fault In Our Stars". But really though, anyone who doesn't cry during that movie has no heart.

Workouts | Blah, blah, blah. No.

Weight | 123. Gain of a 1lb! That's probably more food than baby though if we are being honest here.

Body | My stomach is getting harder and more prominate and the blue veins/stretch marks on my breasts are real and happening. Sorry, it's not all glamorous.

Clothing | I am going to have to suck it up and buy some maternity jeans soon. My mother-in-law has informed me my hair-tye fastened, semi-closed jeans are not ideal anymore.

Sleep | I'm sleeping great and I'm loving it.

Appetite | Really nothing has changed. Spice, salt and a little more spice. Sweets? No thank you.

Missing | My margarita with a salted rim.

Fun Fact | Baby is gaining facial muscles to be able to frown and squint. Oh that sweet face!

Best Moment of The Week | At our apt yesterday I asked the doctor if the bowling ball feeling in my stomach was the baby. When she said yes I told here where I felt the baby. She immediately put the heartbeat reader on my stomach in that spot and wouldn't you know it. There was baby! It blew my mind that although I'm not feeling kicks yet (just the one so far) I do feel baby adjusting and putting weight in a new area of my body. #priceless

Next Apt. | October 23rd and it's our GENDER apt although we won't find out until Oct 26th at our gender reveal party. The countdown is officially on!

  1. Isn't it the most amazing thing to feel your baby inside you? Every time I feel my daughter wiggle or kick I ache to be able to hold and cuddle her. At 28 weeks I'm just starting to be able to tell butt vs. foot vs. elbow and it's so exciting! On the pants subject, while I wear leggings 97% of the time these days (because let's face it, being knocked up is the best excuse ever for comfy clothes in public), I can say that I'm loving my Gap Maternity jeans. Although (at least in NC) it's really hard to find a Gap that carries maternity and buying jeans online is hard :(

  2. awwwww I so just texted you but this answer my question! :) That's awesome that you're starting to feel the baby!! So sweet eeek!

  3. SO excited to find out the gender and the name! For the girl initials... I'm going to guess Katie Elizabeth after your favorite blogger, haha! ;) Glad you are feeling well, you look amazing!

  4. You look fabulous!!!!! Love that shirt!

  5. Aww you look so cute!!! PS I was the SAME weight before I got pregnant....not!

  6. You look gorgeous! Love the initials! What about Kinsleigh for a girl anddd I have no idea for the boy hahaha! I recently bought some maternity jeans from Motherhood and they are great. They are full panel, but fit amazing and look like normal ol' jeans! Plus, they fit up to 30lbs of weight gain so even if you buy them now you should be able to wear them all the way to the end! :)

  7. I suggest investing in some maternity jeans sooner rather than later! I got mine around 19 weeks and they are so much more comfortable than the hair tie/belly band trick, I wish I had gotten them sooner!

  8. How exciting! Eek! I can't wait to find out! Congratulations.

  9. ahhhh i'm so excited to see the gender & hear the name!

  10. Oh goodness, I'm not even going to try to guess haha, I'm sure they'd be ridiculous! As always, you are looking stunning... :)

  11. You are too cute girl! Love that top by the way!! Soooo excited to find out whether it's a boy or a girl!! :)

    <3, Pamela

  12. You are so adorable! Glad everything is going well :)

  13. Awe you felt baby!! My name guesses are... Kate Elizabeth and Mason Bryant. Haha :)

  14. That's so sweet about the baby's movements! Isn't it exciting?!!! And maternity jeans/pants/yoga pants, let me tell you are the BEST! I just brought a couple from Ross and so they were inexpensive. I got the ones that have the band over the whole belly. Baby girl didn't like the under belly support pants...she would squirm more :) Let me tell you - Ah! Relief!I can't wait for the gender reveal!

  15. So dang cute! I do not have kids so it is very interesting to hear about the different stages of pregnancy in relation to the phases the body goes through. I am surprised to hear your appetite has not changed as that is something I hear happening with many others.

  16. Oh my gosh, I can't wait to hear the gender and the name! I'm so unbelievably excited for you. Based on your cravings, I totally think you're having a boy. And if his name starts with M....Mason? Maddox? Or the ever classic Michael?
