Babies Bump and 16 Week Update

16 WEEKS LOOKS LIKE THIS:


How far along:  16 weeks 3 days (I've found that my weekly picture-taking day is Saturday).
Total weight gain?  Still officially +6 lbs, but I think I've gained at least a pound or two since my last doctor's appointment.
Maternity clothes?  I think I might actually sort of like maternity clothes now that my belly has grown into them.  Still loving the long tops that cover my bum in the leggings that I wear every day.  I finally bought a pair of maternity tights and they're just as uncomfortable as non-maternity tights.  See ya later dresses/skirts - you're not worth it!  And I have a love affair with Gap maternity - thank you to the Gap for making non-farty maternity clothes.  THANK YOU.  Maternity clothes shopping is horrible, but the Gap has made me not hate it so much.  I do have a formal wedding to go to at the end of the month… does anyone have any ideas as to where I can buy a non-expensive formal maternity dress?  
Stretch marks?  I thought I saw a few on my upper thigh/hip area where I have some round ligament pain, but I don't see them anymore.
Sleep:  I've encountered the stage of restlessness.  The other night I was laying in bed at 3:00 a.m. thinking of names for a pregnant friend.  I would still call myself a good sleeper, but I'm definitely tossing and turning more throughout the night than I ever have before.
Best moment this week:  Realizing that with every passing day, I'm feeling a little bit better.
Miss anything?  I miss healthy food but my babies just don't want fruits and veggies!
Movement:  I still can't tell… I can't wait to know that I'm feeling four feet kicking me, though!
Food cravings:  Still none.
Anything make you queasy or sick?  Still nothing in particular, but anything can do the trick.
Gender:  LOVE my Boys!
Labor Signs:  None.  Phew!
Symptoms:  The same… some nausea, that I think may be on its way out (?), linea nigra, some ligament pain on my left side in my hip/upper leg area, the nasal congestion and now restlessness.
Belly button in or out?  In.
Wedding rings on or off?  On when I'm out of the house and off when I'm in the house.
Looking forward to:  Being spoiled by my mom and dad (I am working from my mom and dad's house in CT due to some work meetings down here this week) and my mom's cooking.  The babies already love it!

Is the Monday bump update a new thing?!?!? If so, I'm loving me some Mondays now! Woo hoo for 16 weeks! You look adorable and all six pounds are in your bump! So cute! My favorite part: "I'm feeling a little bit better"--YAY!!!! Hope this is the end of nausea!!!

Sarah said...

I've got a couple more pounds on you, I don't even have a cute belly and I'm only having one. NOT FAIR!!! Are you wearing leggings in this pic? If so, where from? My Target normal ones are starting to get a bit too tight for me!

Try ebay for a dress. I've bought most of my soon to be warn maternity wear from ebay and have been very satisfied. I've also seen some cute tops and skirt combos. Thanks for sharing the pics!

Love that little bump!!! Maternity clothes shopping is only going to get get worse!! haha! I found Old Navy Maternity to be the key to my wardrobe, granted I don't work outside the home, so could get away with comfier options!
Good luck with your sweet tooth! Mine is out of control! This baby needs to come out, so I can get back on track haha!

It looks like you bumped out a lot more from last week, same thing happened to me. And I too love me some Gap maternity clothes and Old Navy has some that aren't too bad either. There are some formal maternity dresses on Zulily that aren't horrible or you could get a non-pregnant wrap dress too.

You are just adorable! As for maternity clothes, try PinkBlush Maternity, it's an online store. It's been a favorite of mine! As for a dress for the wedding, try Destination Maternity. Good luck!

Oh that bump is looking so adorable. U are only gaining weight on the belly which makes it more adorable. I'm glad the nausea is subsiding a bit, hope it's out the door like right about now.
