Tired tired tired. I am sure having a toddler to attend to is playing quite the role in this. We were having some struggles with her sleeping, I know surprise surprise, so that was kicking my butt. I have still been dry heaving almost every morning but it is mostly due to me not eating fast enough after I get up. It is so hard for me to eat in the morning and takes me a little bit to actually want to eat and then by that time I have already thrown up. Hopefully it will pass soon. I am almost 16 weeks.
Total weight gain: Nothing as of my last appointment 3 weeks ago. I will update after my appointment next week. I am sure there has been some weight gain by now.
Sleep: Sleep hasn’t been too horrible. Besides getting up 3-4 times to pee and Kinley waking up and ending up in our bed I can’t complain. When I was pregnant with Kinley I had horrible insomnia! It was so awful every night! So in reality this is better. After I had her I started reading before bed and I think that has really helped me relax my mind and help me fall asleep. Fingers crossed the past few nights she seems to be doing better so maybe she is finally adjusting and we are getting back on track. I have always been a side sleeper with somewhat being on my tummy. I am still able to sleep like that though I see me moving towards fully being on my side soon.
Best Moment of the week: Getting my hair cut. It has been WAY too long since I have gotten it done. It feels so much better. It is such a great feeling to get a hair cut. I really need to go more consistently but I really just don't have the time and schedule other things.
Miss Anything: Once in a while I miss wine but really with being sick all the time I don't miss it that much. It is a little weird to say but I am actually enjoying being pregnant this time....so far that is. So other than I am not missing anything.
Movement: I haven't felt anything yet but am really hoping I get to feel this little one soon.
Cravings: Honestly nothing. I am still having a hard time eating anything. Some days are easier than others but for the most part food just sounds awful, but if I don't eat I get really sick. So much fun.
Gender: I keep going back and forth. It is strange because I was 99% certain with Kinley and I was correct. We should find out soon hopefully and then we will do a fun announcement.
Symptoms: Have I said I am tired! I am starting to get a bump that might be more than bloat. It happened around this time with Kinley too. My boobs have been sore lately and I think they are growing a little. I don't remember them growing too much in the beginning with Kinley either. I definitely have been sicker this go around.
Mood: I am pretty happy most of the time. I am definitely more emotional though. There have been many times I could have started crying when songs come on the radio or random sentimental thoughts pop in my head.
Looking forward to: Finding out the gender and Kinley's birthday in a month. Did you read about her birthday inspirations? You can here.
Being pregnant with a toddler is a whole new world but I am really enjoying it. She keeps me up and moving and I think that really helps. I really need to add in some exercise but I just haven't been able to find the time. Maybe some day, plus I am soaking up all the snuggles with her. Working full time and still working on our new house has me very busy. Though things are coming along here.
