Bumpdate / Week 16

How far along: 16 weeks, 6 days. I know, I’m already almost 17 weeks but I’m still getting used to blogging again. For example I thought it had only been a few days since I posted something but it’s actually been two weeks. Fail.

Baby size: The size of an avocado (about 4 1/2 inches)

Must have items: My new giant pregnancy pillow that wraps all the way around my body. I call it my throne. It's glorious.

Sleep: The pregnancy pillow has helped a lot now that I’m unable to sleep on my back and only my sides. The real issue I’ve been having is Restless Leg Syndrome. I remember having it when I was pregnant with Rowan but I don’t think it was until my third trimester and it wasn’t every night. Now I have it within minutes of lying down in bed at night. Not cool.

Cravings: First thing I’d like to note is that I’m able to drink plain water again, yay! It’s the simple joys people. Other than that I’ve been craving Mexican food and chocolate lately.

Baby movement: There have been two times that I think I felt a little flutter of movement from the baby, but can’t be 100% sure. So.. maybe?

Gender: WE FIND OUT IN 2 DAYS (!!!!)

Favorite moment this week: My favorite moment was this past Saturday when I felt, physically, the best I’ve felt in a long time. Besides a mild headache I had NONE of my pre-pregnancy or pregnancy symptoms and it was the best.

Least favorite moment this week: My least favorite moment was when I went to my doctor’s appt last Thursday and she told me she might already be able to tell me the baby’s gender if it’s in the right position, got my hopes up, only to tell me that she couldn’t get a clear shot because the baby’s foot was in the way. I had a mini emotional breakdown on the phone with my mom afterward but then got over it because our anatomy scan was coming up soon anyway. Preg problems.


  1. Congrats! I'll be 20 weeks along with the first on Thursday, and it's our anatomy scan! Hoping baby cooperates and we get to find out :)

  2. Glad you are feeling better! When I started getting restless leg syndrome my midwife recommended a cal mag that dissolved in water to drink that tastes good. I found some at the health food store and it worked for me! Hope it helps! -Maile
