Second trimester finally! It felt like forever getting here.
Also I swear my tummy is getting bigger! This dress or maybe my pose makes me look like it’s stayed the same size for 8 weeks. It most certainly is growing. I no longer fit in my pre- pregnancy clothes.
HOW PREGNANT AM I?
I am currently 16 weeks pregnant! So close to 20 weeks, it’s crazy! If you haven’t read any other posts, we know that we are having a girl and her name is Cali Capri : )
HOW BIG IS BABY?
She is the size of an avocado! She can hear us now, which I love. I can only imagine what she’s thinking with all the crazy going on in our house.
HOW I’M FEELING: PHYSICALLY
My nausea is MUCH better! I only have it in the mornings and that will probably last until Cali is born. Overall my body is feeling pretty good, but I know soon my belly will be getting a lot bigger, which will bring more intense back pain. My weight gain is the same as all my pregnancies so feeling good about that : )
HOW I’M FEELING: EMOTIONALLY
Feeling really happy and excited : ) I am super impatient and keep myself sane by counting down to appointments and other fun baby related things.
Still hungry all day everyday. I love chicken nuggets with buffalo sauce, green apples, brown rice with lots of black pepper and jalapeno chips. Basically all the salt and spiciness I can get.
PURCHASES FOR BABY
I have still been amazingly good! HOWEVER, I have made extensive (very extensive) lists with everything we need to get by April. You’d think 5th baby we’d have everything we need, but because we had originally decided to stop at 4, we got rid of everything. EVERYTHING! So it’s like a first baby : )
I do plan on buying some little things for Cali the next few weeks to help pass the time. Our kiddos stay in our bedroom their first year, so we will be decorating a corner of the room just for her. I am obsessed with black and white everything so I’ll do that with some pink and gold.
THINGS I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO THE NEXT FEW WEEKS
My next appointment is at 19 weeks where we’ll do the anatomy scan and get to see baby. I love ultrasounds and am still amazed by how it all works. I also really can’t wait to feel her moving in my belly. A few times I have felt something, but not the constant kicks and wiggles I love so much.
So excited that our sweet girl is growing and that the holiday season is here!
