Third Pregnancy :: Week 16

Third Pregnancy :: Week 16

Week 16 Photo Series_Third Pregnancy

Age of Abigail ::
2 years, 10.5 months

Age of Mackenzie ::
13 months

How far along:
16 weeks

How big is baby:
The size of an avocado

Weight gain this week (followed by total weight gain for this pregnancy thus far):
2 lbs (6 lbs total)

Maternity clothes:
My regular pants are getting very tight. I think I’m about 1-2 weeks away from going all-Maternity in the pants department. My regular tops still fit because I tend to wear clothes that don’t fit me very well when I’m not pregnant (I’m sure the fact that this is my 3rd pregnancy in 4 years has something to do with that – I haven’t invested much in the way of “regular” clothes).

Stretch marks:

Belly button:

I’ve still been sleeping really well. Zero complaints in that department!

Best moment of the week:
Dominating Thanksgiving. The turkey was perfect, the sides were incredible, the table was beautiful, and the cleanup crew did a great job. I can’t wait to host many more Thanksgivings in the future!

Food cravings:
My sweet tooth is back. Chocolate has been pretty amazing lately.

Food aversions:

Occasional heartburn. That’s all.  Oh, and I’ve been exhausted.

I’m still waiting for this baby to get super active.

TBD…we find out two weeks from today.

What I’m looking forward to:
Christmas vacation. That, and our appointment in two weeks. I’m 99% sure we’ll be having another girl (which we’d love), but we’ll check just in case a little boy wants to join the crew.

What I’m nervous about:
Not getting all my Christmas shopping done in time for the 25th!

What I miss:
San Francisco. I miss walking to the parks. I miss the restaurants. I miss being forced to go outside on a daily basis.

What I don’t miss is having only one bathroom and two bedrooms for four people.  The pros and cons of moving…

Next appointment:
12.18.13 – the big gender reveal appointment!

Comparison to my First Pregnancy (Abigail):
There is no comparison to my First Pregnancy…yet!  We’re getting close!

Comparison to my Second Pregnancy (Mackenzie):
Here’s Week 16!

Until next time,
