16 Week Pregnancy Update

Weight Gained: 1.5 pounds since last month's appointment.  4.5 pounds since the beginning of the pregnancy

Maternity Clothes: Not yet...I do have one pair of actual pregnancy pants that are waiting in the wings when I need them.

Stretch Marks: Not yet! I really don't want these to show up so I have been slathering organic cold pressed coconut oil that I got at Whole Foods all over after showers.  It smells so good and makes my skin feel soft.

Sleep:  I wake up once a night to pee.  I haven't purchased any new pillows but may get to that point as things progress.

Best Moment of the Week:  Finding out what we are's a secret until we tell our family.  During the ultrasound the little peanut was so cute with crossed legs.  My doctor had to nudge my stomach to get the baby to shift position's.  

Food Aversions:  Don't really feel like eating chicken lately.

Cravings:  Sandwiches and soup

Movement:  I know its moving around in there but I cant feel anything yet.

What I want to make for the little one next:  A snuggler and some of the bedding

What I'm looking forward to:  Surprising our family with the gender of the baby.  

Milestones:  Knowing the sex of our baby!

My next appointment is June 8th for the big detailed ultrasound.  I will be 20 weeks then.  I will also be taking a belly picture soon.
