Bump date: 16 weeks
Welcome to bump date week 16!
Week 16: Baby T is the size of an avocado! Little one is practicing facial expressions, and his or her eyes can now detect light (even though baby T’s eyelids are still shut.)
According to the scale, about 3-5 pounds, depending on the time of day. (For the record: it feels like I’ve gained way more than that.)
Running has been going well overall. These past couple weeks, I’ve been running 3-5 miles about 3-4 times a week. I’ve also continued my strength training. Overall, fitting in about 6 days of exercise a week- and it feels so good.
My sleep is a lot more interrupted than the past couple weeks, increased appetite, bigger “bump” (that still doesn’t look like a bump yet, ha!), and increased thirst level (hello water.)
Coffee (this is a tragedy, folks!), some spicy foods, and chocolate is a hit or miss around here…
All.the.fruit. Any fruit. Sweet potatoes, oatmeal, big salads, anything sour, and cheese (the block kind, must be cold.)
Looking forward to:
Our next appointment! Can’t wait to hear this little ones’ heartbeat. Such an amazing and sweet sound.
I’m leaning towards a girl, but because I think it’s a girl, I’m pretty sure we will have a boy. That makes sense right? 😉
Baby/ pregnancy related purchases:
This past week, I have collected a few maternity shirts (aka, bigger, flowy shirts), one pair of maternity shorts, and my wonderful husband bought a beautiful maternity dress for me.
Coffee, my regular jeans, and normal hair. Other than that, I’m feeling good overall. I know in the end, all the changes and discomfort will be worth it.
That’s it for today, I’m heading out for a run soon. Make it a great day!
See you tomorrow with a WIAW (if I remember to take pictures 😉 )
