16 Weeks Pregnant with Baby #2!

 Here we go again with baby number 2! We shall see how well I keep this update! Also the lighting in the room is awful! We will have to try and take pictures during the day from here on out.
How far along?  16 weeks
Total weight gain/measurements: As of 2 weeks ago I was down 2.5 lbs from my pre-pregnancy weight. I had a cold with a sore throat and a three week cough. It stinks that you can't really take any medication when you are pregnant to help. We don't own a scale at home so there is no way for me to know what my current weight is. I guess we will have to wait and see at my next doctor appointment at the end of the month.
Maternity clothes: I'm wearing maternity shorts and some shirts. When I first found out I was pregnant I bought a bigger pair of regular shorts, which are a little too snug now.
Stretch marks: No new ones! I was really bad last time about putting on lotion to help with that but this time around I use Bio-Oil in the morning and Palmer's Cocoa Butter at night. I'm still trying to get my old stretch marks to fade some more.
Sleep: Hasn't been the best, I have a hard time falling asleep no matter how early I get up. However, I got a Bump Nest Pregnancy Pillow last week and it is really comfortable. We have also been transitioning Harper to her crib so that also has me up a couple of times a night. Baby steps.....
Best moment this week: Coming back from a bachelorette party in Nashville and getting to see both Tim and Harper. I did miss them while I was away from them over the weekend.
Miss anything? Having a beer or glass of wine.
Movement: I think this week I finally felt the baby move. I can't wait until the movements get stronger!
Food cravings: Bagels and butter popcorn with salt.
Anything making you queasy or sick? Walking by the raw meat at the supermarket. So gross!
Gender: We find out on the 24th! I can't wait to find out so I can begin working on the nursery!
Labor signs:None, thank goodness.
Symptoms: Sore boobs and feeling tired a lot, but that may be just because I have a one year old to chase around all day. Also my nails have been peeling and breaking really bad, which was the exact opposite from when I was pregnant With Harp.
Belly button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or moody most of the time: Both. So sorry Tim.
Looking forward to: Going to San Diego. I have always wanted to go to California and we get to go this week since Tim has a conference out there. SOOOOOOOOO EXCITED!!!!!
