16 Weeks Pregnant Bumpdate

Sharing all of my symptoms. cravings, highs, and lows of being 16 weeks pregnant. Plus, an update on the baby’s size and gender predictions.

Hi folks! I missed a week of bumpdates because last week was just a lot to handle. My family lost one of my uncles to cancer so we had the memorial service and visitation, not to mention all of the emotions that go along with losing a loved one. Our baby’s due date is actually on this uncle’s birthday, which is so special. Thank you to all those that messaged, texted and sent prayers! They meant so much to me!

16 weeks

How far along? 16 Weeks
Baby Size: An avocado
Total weight gain/loss: I’ve gained 4 lbs. since week 12, so I’m right on schedule.
Maternity clothes? I bought more maternity leggings and a few maternity tank tops. The tank tops are long and cover my butt, so I wear them with the leggings and cardigans most of the time. So comfy!
Stretch marks? Still not yet
Sleep: After almost a week of bad sleep I got out the pregnancy pillow and have been sleeping much better and usually through the night.
Best moment this week: Hearing baby’s heartbeat at my doctor’s appointment on Thursday.
Miss Anything? I miss my appetite. I’m still having strong aversions to a lot of foods, like meat and green vegetables, so I don’t get to eat what I want most of the time.
Movement: Not yet, but my doctor said I should feel some movement before my 20 week appointment.
Food cravings: Still loving Coke, pickles and potato chips. This week I’ve also been on a breakfast pizza kick.
Gender prediction: Jesse and I both still think boy.
I’ve felt my energy returning in bursts and some days I go without nausea for most of the day, so I really hope that as this trimester progresses that will keep improving. Fingers crossed!

  1. Yum! Breakfast pizza? Maybe you could sneak in a different kind of meat to get some of that protein on there. Chorizo sausage or something?

    Thinking of you but happy to hear about the due date being your Uncle’s birthday. He’s got y’alls back 🙂
