Pregnancy Update Week 16…
A really exciting week for me this week! I felt baby move for the first time!! I only feel him/her when I lie down to go to sleep as I tend to lie on my stomach. Lots of flutters & strange feelings so definitely the baby!
How far along? 16 +4
How big is the baby? The size of an avocado
Total weight gain / loss? +2 lbs
Maternity clothes? Not yet … my jeans are starting to get very tight tho! Leggings are more my thing now.
Sleep? A lot of waking up at 4am and not being able to get back to sleep for ages 🙁
Best moment this week? Hearing baby’s heartbeat for the first time!
Symptoms? Some nausea still, but generally don’t need the tablets now. Quite a lot of sharp stomach muscle pains where everything is being stretched!!
Food cravings? Apples!! Lots of apples. And chocolate (not good I know!)
Food aversions? Still not a fan of onions (I can eat them cooked, just the smell of raw onions makes me feel ill!). Have been able to start eating in the evening again yay!
Stretch marks? No!
What I miss? I haven’t had a very good few days (non-pregnancy related) and really wanted something alcoholic!! Obviously, that won’t be happening!
What I’m looking forward to? Feeling like a normal, functioning human being again!
Bump? More noticeable now, even through baggier clothing.
