Munchkin is the size of a avocado!
16 weeks 3 days ~ 4th month ~ 2nd trimester (16 weeks 1 day in the photo)


Weight gain: 3 pounds

Sleep: Parker was very gracious to give me his cold. Sleep has been horrible trying to breath at night. I choose not to take any medications during pregnancy, even if they are approved, so I have just been sucking it up. I did find that even though I was exhausted and falling asleep at 8pm, I would wake up around 12 and not be able to fall back asleep. Now I don’t get into bed until 9:30-10 and it seems to be helping. I still have to get up 2-3 times to pee but can almost do that in my sleep now. 

Miss anything: My husbands cooking. I just have no energy or desire to stand in the kitchen making dinner, it’s horrible. We are actually looking into something like this for the remainder of his deployment and maybe even when he returns. When you break down the price per serving it is very comparable to the grocery store. I’ll have more of an update on this later when I have a moment to really research it and possible give it a try. I am embarrassed to need this but it’s life, there are only so many hours in the day and sometimes, you just need a little help.

Movement: Nothing yet :/

Cravings: Nothing really this week. Cravings and aversions have been pretty minimal this time around. I consider that to be extremely lucky 🙂 My Mom did mention chocolate the other day over the phone and I may have pulled out the graham crackers and chocolate frosting for snack time. 

Best moment this week: Getting my hair done on Monday. It was so nice to be pampered a little!

Worst moment this week: Anticipating my 16 weeks appointment when I take an early glucose test. I really hope it’s negative so I don’t have to take the 3 hour or even worse have GD this time. 

Looking forward to: Heading home to NJ for Easter to see the family. I get to travel with my awesome cousin Violet so it will make the trip very enjoyable!
