The Bump Report – McBaby II – 16 Weeks

How far along? 16 weeks today!

Baby is the size of: an avocado!

How big: 4.6 inches and 3.15 oz. But if this baby follows in his big brother’s footsteps, he’s bigger than that already. šŸ˜‰

Total weight gain/loss: Thanks to a lot of nausea and a complete loss of appetite in the first trimester, I don’t think I’ve gained anything yet. I have a feeling I’ll be putting it back on soon though… my appetite is returning with a vengeance. FEED ME.

Maternity clothes? Not yet, but I think I need to start using a belly band with my jeans. I keep having to unbutton my pants when I sit down. #hawt

Sleep: For the first time since the beginning of my pregnancy, my sleep is returning to normal. I spent the first 3 months falling asleep super early (think 8:30 p.m.) and then waking up at 3 a.m. for an hour of insomnia. Now I’m back on track, falling asleep at a normal time and not waking at all! Hooray!

Top moment of the week:
I’m starting to feel Littlest Boy fluttering around in there, and every time I feel it, it makes me smile. šŸ™‚

What Iā€™m missing? sushi! More specifically, raw sushi. Also, champagne. Ohhhh how I miss champagne! Weird, since I wouldn’t say I drank champagne all that often pre-pregnancy.

Movement: Yes! I feel little flutters which I know will soon turn to BIG KICKS !

Food cravings: Veggie subs from Jimmy Johns still top my list. Also, Italian salad dressing and tomatoes. Milky Ways. Apples. Boneless chicken wings (emphasis on the boneless). And this Jarlsberg cheese dip from Kroger that I can’t get enough of. I didn’t even know I liked Jarlsberg cheese!


Food aversions: Oddly enough, regular non-breaded chicken really grosses me out. I know what you’re thinking, “She just said she’s craving chicken wings.” I know. I know. Also, much to Brad’s dismay, any type of smoked meat basically repulses me, meaning his Big Green Egg hobby has been dormant lately.

Showing yet: Yes! I look like I ate too many burritos. šŸ™‚
Happy or Moody: Getting more pleasant. šŸ˜‰ This pregnancy has been hard on me. I’ve been an emotional roller coaster. Sorry, husband!

Who knew… I would be a mother of two boys? Unless life throws us a major curve ball, this will be my last baby. As a girly-girl, I always assumed I’d have at least one girl. I was afraid I’d be disappointed about having two boys, but I’m not. In fact, the opposite is true… the idea of having another sweet little baby boy face smiling up at me makes me giddy with excitement. šŸ™‚

Looking forward to: Starting the nursery, rocking a bump and feeling more movement from my sweet boy.
