Due Date: April 13, 2015 (I'll have a scheduled c-section sometime between April 6th-10th)
Movement: Yes! I felt the first "waves" of movement on Oct. 27... the same day I turned 16 weeks
Feeling: More excited than ever, now that we know the babies gender!
Food Cravings: I'm craving eeeeeverything under the sun! I had no food cravings last time, not even one, so to have a different intense craving everyday this go-round is really amusing to me... and yes, I'm indulging in every single craving, haha!! Mostly sweets, carbs, anything with red sauce (pasta, pizza, etc) and cereal... really healthy stuff ;)
Food Aversions: Fish, any Asian food, pickles, chicken, raw tomatoes
Clothes: I'm in all regular clothes, although they're definitely fitting more and more snug each day and some are giving me love handles. Some of my jeans I'm having to do the rubber band trick, whereas others button just fine -- depends on the cut and style. I've already started to wear a pair of under belly maternity jeans, mostly because I really love maternity jeans and how comfortable they are! But truthfully, I gaining weight more rapidly and really am showing so much quicker this go-round. I'd compare my 16 week belly to my 20 weeks belly with Trace, yikes!
Stretch Marks: Nope
Sleep: No problems here. I try to get at least 3 naps in per week and am getting about 8/8.5 hours of sleep each night... I'd love more, but that amount is working for me.
Symptoms: I'm vomiting still, especially after I get off of a plane and get to my car. I call it parking lot puke. Awesome, no?
What I Miss: eating salami, mass amounts of tuna and drinking alcohol. Also, my flat tummy that I worked so hard for this past summer, haha!
Best Moment: Finding out the baby's gender in Carolina Beach was magical, as was feeling his 1st movements the exact day I was 16 weeks!
Memorable Moment: Telling Trace that he's having a little brother - a best friend and playmate for life - was incredible for me... but he had no clue what we were telling him, haha!! Regardless, it was a moment that I'll remember forever. Also, I had very low expectations of our moms reactions to hearing that it was "another" boy, but much to my surprise my mom went nuts! She went crazier than she did when we told her about baby boy #1 and was so excited for us, but mostly for Trace. Her reaction was a total surprise to me! Cali on the other hand, not so thrilled ;)
