Happy Tuesday! For those who celebrated, I hope you all had a wonderful long weekend and Memorial Day!
I’m back today with another bump date! Interestingly enough, the weeks are flying by for me. I can’t believe I’m already 16 weeks into this pregnancy! I felt like I just wrote my first trimester recap and here I am writing my 16 week update. At the end of next month, I’ll be halfway through. Yikes! I might be signing a different tune come August when it’s 100 degrees out and I’m as big as a house, but for now, the weeks are flying by!
In a way though, I’m enjoying the fact that weeks are going by as fast as they are because I look at each week as a huge milestone, which I greatly look forward to. I’m staying healthy and the babies are healthy and growing like weeds with no complications. That’s a BIG deal in my book!
Maternity clothes? I bought a few pieces over the weekend as I don’t need much yet. I got another pair of black leggings, a black maternity tank top and a black knee length dress, which I could dress up or down depending on the occasion.
Stretch marks? No.
Sleep? Not so great. With the constant need to go to the bathroom and the lower back pain, my sleep has been disrupted more often than not these days.
Best moment this week? Telling one of my coworkers, who I haven’t seen in a while, the big news! It’s like a double whammy – first, we say I’m pregnant, which is exciting enough, but that when we saying I’m having twins, people go crazy. Breaking the news to people has been a blast!
Miss anything? Sleeping on my back. I didn’t realize how much I slept on my back until I was told that that wasn’t an option any more. That’s definitely been hard to get used to.
Movement? Not yet, but I’m anxiously awaiting to feel something.
Food Cravings? Surprisingly, I was craving much of anything this week. We’ll see how long that lasts!
Anything making you queasy or sick? No! :-)
Gender? Not yet.
Labor Signs? No.
Symptoms? A lot of my symptoms have eased up quite a bit this week. I had a few days where I felt somewhat tired but overall, it wasn’t too bad. The only real major thing I noticed was on Thursday afternoon, I noticed this very uncomfortable, achy pain in my upper right abdomen. By the time I got home from work, it was bothering me quite a bit, so I skipped my usual workout that evening and opting for resting on the couch and it eventually went away. We think that one or both of the babies was pressing on my rib cage. Ouch!
Belly Button – in or out? In.
Wedding Rings – on or off? On.
Happy or Moody? Happy!
Looking Forward To? My 16 week check-up this afternoon!
Did you find that your pregnancy went quickly, especially in the beginning months?
