Due date: February 11, 2019

How far along: 16 weeks; baby's cartilage is turning into bone

Size of baby: As big as an avocado

Gender: Choosing not to open an envelope that says so don’t know yet! 

Total weight gain: 9 lbs

Symptoms: Less severe headaches, still out of breath all the time

Labor signs: None

Stretch marks: None

Belly and belly button: I think I can feel a small bump?!

Wedding ring: On

Maternity clothes: My regular clothes are getting tighter and stretchy pants are calling my name.


Diet: Still constantly hungry. Craving weird things.

Food cravings:

        • Bloody Mary mix or V8…with lots of Tabasco
        • Whole banana peppers 
        • Sourdough bread
        • Tomatoes in any form
        • Green beans
        • Blackberries

Food aversions: Meat still makes me feel a bit queasy, but I can finally eat it without wanting to pass out.


Exercise: I’m loving this 2nd trimester boost of energy. My workouts have been so much more enjoyable.

Sleep: I’ve been sleeping really well this week. I have even slept through a few nights without having to use the bathroom! 

Miss anything in particular: Beer. 

Mood: I’ve been on a bit of a pregnancy high this week…finally talking to our family about the baby made me so happy. 

Looking forward to: Telling our friends and coworkers our news.

Worst moment this week: The nervousness and excitement of sharing our news for the first time.

Best moment this week: Finally telling the family about our little babe.
