Baby Yancey - 16 Week Bumpdate

Better late than never right!?  Headaches have revisited me this week & haven't been too kind.  Feeling much better though & ready for a long, productive weekend!

Top: Old Navy - Similar  Skirt: Target - Similar

How far along: 16 weeks!

Baby Size: The little babe is the size of an Avacado!

Weight Gain:
  Not sure, I would say a couple lbs maybe?  I'll find out for sure next week.

Maternity Clothes: I officially wore my first maternity item last Friday, jeans!  They are the pair I ordered a little while back at Motherhood Maternity (these & they're on sale!).  Overall, I liked the fit but, will have to get them hymned since I'm a bit of a shorty & since I'm not quite ready for the full panel yet I just simply folded it down & they worked perfectly!
*Note: I'm wearing regular jeans today & rocking the rubber band trick! Ha!

Stretch Marks/Swelling:  So far so good!

Sleep:  Can't really complain... except when Bingham hogs the bed. ;)

Exercise:  I started stretching after my pre-natal massage & it has really made a difference.  I feel so much better!

Food Cravings or Aversions:  Nothing really this week.

Gender:  8 days people... 8 days!!!

Movement:  I don't know if it's possible to feel the baby this early on but, if it is I would swear to you I felt the little babe twice this week!  Once while I was in my car, around lunch time.  It was this sort of grumble thing right around my belly button.  It caught me off guard & since I was hungry at the time I chalked it up to my stomach growling.  Then, Wednesday morning (I stayed home from work due to a killer headache, more below), the pup had woken me up, I was laying in bed & felt the same grumble feeling twice!  Caught me off guard again & I just laid in bed praying it would happen again but, no luck.  Could have been that I was hungry then too but, it could have been the little babe... Guess I'll know for sure in another few weeks or so!

Symptoms:  I really thought the headaches had subsided however, I'm afraid these are one thing that will hang around throughout this pregnancy.  I had a terrible one that started out light Tuesday afternoon & continually got worse throughout the evening.  I ended up staying home on Wednesday when I woke up & I still had this headache.  I caved to the Tylenol & used ice packs.  The dark guest room helped a lot too & thankful to be on the mend from that!  & Yes, I'm getting peppermint oil stat!

Labor Signs:  No

Belly button in or out:  In

Wedding rings on or off:  On

Mood:  Overall good - wanting to feel 100% to tick things off of our to-do list though!

Nursery:  Still has boxes & a lot of things that belong in other places being stored there for now.

What I miss:  Being able to take major meds for headaches.  Sorry to whine, I've just never experienced headaches like these.

Best moment this week:  Thursday - Matt is officially back to a day schedule!!

What I'm looking forward to:  A long weekend filled with productivity & time with my main man!  Might even get to take the pup to the dog park too - hopefully!
