PREGNANCY UPDATE - 16 WEEKS WITH BABY #2!

by - September 15, 2014

How far along: 16 weeks and one day. 
Weight gain: 5lbs in total I'm pretty happy about that total, but I have read the baby doubles its weight and size in the next couple of weeks so I'm expecting a big gain. I've been trying really hard to focus on healthy eating as I don't want to pile on to much excess weight and feel really crappy afterwards.  
Pregnancy Symptoms: My skin is breaking out like crazy on my chin so I know its hormone related. Looking forward to this symptom disappearing. I've also been experiencing really painful hips especially my left side making it really difficult to get comfy at night and walk for long periods of time. I think it might be the start of PPGP (Pregnancy-related pelvic girdle pain) so I'll mention it to the midwife at my next appointment. 
Maternity clothes? Yep! I'm fully embracing this extra warm weather and making the most of dresses and maxi skirts.
Stretch marks? No new ones.
Best moment this week: Enjoying our perfect week away to Center Parcs.
Movement: 99.9% sure I have felt some movement :)
Miss anything? Nothing at all at the moment.  
Food cravings: I didn't really have any this week...
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope, thank the lord!
Gender: I still don't have any idea what I think but we get to find out on Wednesday, which is also my birthday, so that's going to be extra special. 
Labor signs: Nope.
Belly button in or out? Still way in!!
Engagement ring on or off? On.
Happy or moody most of the time: Very happy :) 
Looking forward to: Finding out the gender of our baby on Wednesday and start shopping!!
