16 Weeks | Our Little Avocado | Baby T #2

16 weeks
How far along: 16 weeks
How big is baby? Avocado
Symptoms: This past week was better nausea wise with the Vitamin B6 & unisom daily. Granted I had some early nights & a unisom hangover one morning but better than feeling terrible! Pelvic pain from even light jogging or if I walk too much - luckily rest heals it pretty quickly.
Maternity clothes: Yes
Sleep: Sleep is still good - and not waking up to pee most nights (probably coincides with the Unisom nights)
Miss anything: Being able to get in the orange zone at OTF
Movement: Pretty darn sure I’m feeling movement when I’m relaxing/laying down. Hunter curled up with me one day and had his head below my belly & baby was moving a lot (or at least I think)
Anything making you queasy or sick: Meh, still working out - but I’m powering through!
Have you started to show yet: Yep
Labor signs: None
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding rings on or off: On
Mood? Pretty happy for the most part
Feeling boy or girl? Boy? I don’t know!
Looking forward to: 2 days off this week & getting a massage and facial - yes please!
Best moment of this week: Had fun hosting Rachel’s shower! It was an exhausting day but so fun!! Also, our 16 week appointment. No ultrasound but Dr. C found the heartbeat & said that it must be naptime because she didn’t hear any kicks so we asked what that sounded like & she said whooshing or almost a double heartbeat or weird rhythm. When we find the heartbeat at home Eli is almost always around and the baby is apparently going nuts because we always hear those weird noises but didn’t know what they were. Not sure if the baby is excited or scared of Eli haha. Heartbeat was 148 BPM.

15 Weeks | Our Little Orange | Baby T #2

15 weeks
How far along: 15 weeks
How big is baby? Orange
Symptoms: Sooo this has been the worst week yet for symptoms. Nausea is back - including actual vomiting - this is not supposed to happen in the 2nd tri! Will someone tell my body?? Now trying Unisom + Vitamin B6 to see if I can kick this. Headaches are back. Pelvis pain comes if I push myself too hard on the treadmill.
Maternity clothes: Yuup
Sleep: Sleep is pretty good this week - especially the nights I took Unisom!
Miss anything: Not randomly gagging & throwing up :)
Movement: I think I’ve felt movement on & off. We rented a doppler & Justin is able to find the baby’s heartbeat super fast. Although the baby seems to “run” away when it hears Eli - HA!
Food cravings: Still loving sour pickles & takis. Also got back on the HEB Limon chip train
Anything making you queasy or sick: Working out...I felt so nauseous at everyone of my workouts this week & also about an hour after eating dinner. I actually got sick 3 times this week :(
Have you started to show yet: Yep
Labor signs: None
Belly button in or out: In
Wedding rings on or off: On
Mood? A little bit of a roller coaster
Feeling boy or girl? Girl...refer to being queasy or sick above
Looking forward to: Hosting Rachel’s baby shower for baby Aiden!
Best moment of this week: Had so many fun family dates this weekend! Dinner @ BJs followed by a little shopping & Tiff’s Treats. Saturday Costco run (maybe not as fun) + a trip to the Domain for gelato & Sprinkles cupcakes! A relaxing Sunday purging some stuff to make room for this baby!
