Bump: 16 Weeks


I'm borrowing this little survey to include with my pictures from Matt and Kara Adopt 

Okay...so I think I'm officially showing. Or that's what people are tellin' me. I'm really not good at this whole "bump" picture thing but this was my first attempt!

How far along: 16 Weeks
Baby's size: My weekly updates says the baby is the size of a avocado!
(Eye lashes! Finger nails! Eee!)
Sleep: Sleeping okay. 
Maternity Clothes: I'm still in that awkward place where neither regular or maternity clothes fit. 
Food cravings: Fresh fruits and veggies! I'm serious.
Food aversions: Still not big on processed food. This is probably a good thing.
Symptoms I have: Okay so the nausea and acne is pretty much gone (whew!) but I'm having a lot of weird random things. For instance...charlie horses in the middle of the night...what is that about? 
Doctor’s Appointment: At my last appointment my blood pressure was low (probably from the morning sickness). I have another appointment this week this week to get the HIV test done (mandatory in NY state), and get my blood sugar tested. I'm hoping my blood pressure has bounced back.
Movement: Not yet. 
Belly Button: Innie for a few precious more weeks.
Gender: We will find out sometime this month!
What I’m looking forward to: Finding out what we're having so I can start planning, registering, etc. and feeling the baby move.
What I miss: This is totally not baby related, but I've been really missing my grandpa this week. Watching grandpas and their grand daughters together has been really making me sentimental. For that matter I really miss my dad. If we have a girl, I hope she has a really special relationship with her grandpa too.


  1. OH MY GOSH. This is crazy. And adorable. And, well... You're having a baby!!!!! :) :) :) Yay!! I can't wait to see you in person!

  2. New to your sweet blog. I'm 18 weeks along, and I always enjoy following my pregnancies with other bloggers in the same season. Here's to a lovely month of finding out baby's gender and starting to shop :)

  3. Ah, I can't believe you're going to find out this month! Time is flying by! Cute bump :)
