Week 16

Week 16

We have made it to week 16! It feels like yesterday that we found out that we were expecting. In 4 short weeks we will be finding out if we are having a little boy or a little girl… I’m not going to lie I’m kind of hoping for a girl. Girls names are all that I can think of. None of the boy names I think of would be something I would name my son… Either way (boy or girl) I know we will be excited!

This past weekend Ben and I bought our first baby items, a few packs of onesies (newborn and 3-6months). We don’t want to buy to much until we find out, once we do all the stores better watch out because this momma will be out shopping :). I am also hesitant to buy any nursery items, we plan on moving at the beginning of July, so I dont want to get stuff here just to move it again. We will hopefully be able to buy a house. Once Ben gets back from Minnesota we will be calling lenders and hopefully we can get a loan and start looking. If not we will be renting for another year, which is fine, but that means I need to start looking ASAP.

**How far along?  **16 Weeks

**Total weight gain/loss: ** +4 – holding strong

**How big is baby: **Baby is measuring in at 4.6 inches. Thats about the size of an avocado. Weighing in at 3.5 oz.

**Maternity clothes? ** I bought a few more shirts and another pair of leggings. Everything is getting so tight. I’m living in my sweatpants right now. I have no shame. :)

**Sleep:  **When I sleep, I sleep. But lately I’ve been waking up 2 or 3 times to go to the bathroom. I might need to cut down on the water closer to bed time.

Best moment this week: Seeing everyones predictions on our baby pool. Right now Girl is winning! :)

Movement:  None yet. According to my bump app I should begin feeling something sometime this week and on. I’ll have to pay more attention.

Gender: According to the Chinese Gender calendar I’m having a girl. You can check it out here
