Today I am 16 weeks pregnant - 4 more weeks and I'll be half way through this pregnancy!


I am also 22 today, which I'm really happy about, because I love even numbers and I hate being an uneven age - yes, I know I'm weird. 

I stumbled upon Anna Saccone's blog posts from when she was pregnant with her first two kids, and I decided to do my updates kind of the same way because I really enjoy reading her posts that are done this way. I hope you enjoy following me on this incredible journey :)

How far along? 16 weeks
Total weight gain: I don't have a scale at home, but last week I weighed myself at my mom's house and I've gained about 3kg so far.
Maternity clothes? For now I am still in my regular clothes, but I can't stand anything tight, I also prefer cotton clothing. For some reason anything spandex-y or tight makes me itch like crazy, pregnancy always makes my already sensitive skin even more sensitive.
Sleep: I'm not really having any sleep issues, except that it never feels like I get enough ;) 
Best moment this week: I've been feeling more obvious baby movements, which is my favorite part of being pregnant.
Miss anything? I miss being able to drink wine! #lesbihonest
Movement: I feel my little baby moving just about every day, but it can't be felt from the outside of my tummy yet.
Food cravings: Salt and vinegar chips. Salt and vinegar peanuts. Salt and vinegar EVERYTHING! Also, I ask my husband for froyo (frozen yogurt) every night, it started out as a craving, but now I think I just like the word "froyo", so I ask for it even when I don't want it. hahaha. (p.s. I am yet to actually get the froyo I have been begging for.)
Anything making you queasy or sick: At this point my nausea has gotten a lot better, but if I don't eat regularly I start to feel really sick.
Gender: We are only finding out the gender of this little bug at 18 weeks, but I have a feeling it's a girl.
Labor signs: No.
Symptoms: With my first pregnancy I was very emotional and would cry about everything, this time I'm just really easily annoyed. My boobs are sore, and they feel huge and heavy. I'm still tired, but not nearly as tired as I was in the first trimester. My skin is also terrible, I'm breaking out really badly all over my cheeks.
Belly button in or out? In. It never popped out with my first pregnancy.
Wedding rings on or off? On, for now. But they are definitely tighter than they were before I got pregnant.
Happy or moody most of the time: About 60% happy and 40% moody.
Looking forward to: Eating birthday cake tonight!


Please forgive the bad quality of this week's pictures, I took them in my "vintage" mirror that is not very clear or shiny anymore ;)

I hope you enjoyed reading my pregnancy update, there will be a new one every Wednesday.
