15/16 Week Pregnancy Update

note to self: buy a tripod and re-apply make up before photos.

How Far Along: 

15.5 almost 16 weeks

Weight Gained So Far:

 0 pounds (weird and wonderful all at the same time, so it's hard to tell but my belly did "pop" I just haven't gained much weight to go with it)

Maternity Clothes?: 

Not yet. I do have to use a small hair tie to tie instead of button my jeans closed. My mom did get me a belly band for Christmas which I’m sure I will be pulling out pretty soon.

Stretch Marks?: 

I haven’t noticed any specific new ones.

Sleep: 

Waking up a bit less in the night but having rather long, wackadoo dreams that don’t allow me to enter deep sleep/REM sleep.

Best Moment

of the Week:

 On Tuesday I got to hear baby’s heartbeat and we scheduled my 20 week appointment where we’ll find out the gender (Feb. 4th!). 

Cravings/Aversions:

 baby carrots (hehe), chocolate marshmallow ice cream, peanut butter, pineapple

chocolate

Labor Signs?: 

Nope!

Symptoms: 

acne, bloating, frequent urination, some nausea, extreme fatigue, back pain

Wedding Rings On or Off?: 

On!

Mood:

 I’ve mostly upbeat the last few weeks. I feel more motivated to get things done, eating healthier, all that jazz. Just have to fight the fatigue like crazy.
