I'm 16 weeks and 5 days!
Baby is the size of an avocado, so like 4-5" and 3-5 ounces. I'm actually showing guys! Like, I'm at the stage where some people probably think "that girl is pregnant". We have this super super sweet neighbor who is a grandma and she always is soooo nice when I see her. She's always asking about Framed and I honestly wish she were my actual grandma haha. Anyways, the other day, she sees me, and does a gasp while patting her belly and smiling super big. So that basically told me people can tell now which I am kind of excited about! Like it wasn't an awkward thing, it was like a "yay you're pregnant!" thing.
Practicing all those pregnancy lady poses. The other day J goes "You're just like a pregnant person cause you keep putting your hand on your back and belly!!" haha It wasn't even on purpose so I guess that isn't just something you see in pictures, it's something I just do!!! (except this picture is obvi posed)
I've been trying to wear loose clothes, more for comfort if anything! Hence this dress. And not like this is new or anything but Jason's shirts are my favorite thing ever because they're so comfy. He used to kind of try to protest me always sneaking his shirts every now and then but by now he's used to it and realizes that his closet is my closet :)
I haven't felt movement yet but I am d-y-i-n-g to! At my last appointment they said I should be feeling baby soon so I'm like "k baby, any day now!!" but baby isn't listening.
Right now I am still sleeping fine and I can even still sleep on my belly (don't worry, dr says I can sleep on my belly till it's uncomfortable so baby is fine guys) Surprisingly laying on my back is uncomfortable! Like if I'm on my back too long then my lower back gets kinda achy (probably cause baby is right thereish) so yeah! I wasn't expecting that!
As fas as being sick goes, I'm feeling so much better! Heart burn has started a little but nothing too bad. I'm just glad I can work more and not feel sick every .2 seconds anymore. I do get headaches almost everyday but luckily my father in law is a chiropractor so I just go get adjusted and it helps clear them up because I do not want to be poppin Tylenol everyday.
"cravings" are pretty much the same as always, fruit for days and random junk food but nothing insane. At first when I would have a craving, I would buy bulk of it but then after eating it once, it made me sick to think about eating it again! Needless to say, I wasted lots of food... oops. I leaned to just buy small portions if I ever have a random strong craving.
Jason is already a little sweetie about baby. Yesterday we went to get more huge cement bricks (for Framed stuff) and I tried to help put some on our cart and he was like "please don't lift those, just watch!!" cause he didn't want me to be lifting heavy things with a baby in my belly! I'm really good at watching though :) So yeah, just cute sweet stuff like that to make sure I'm comfortable and stuff! Or if I say I'm tired, he tries to make me take a nap haha he doesn't want me to push through being sleepy or hungry or anything cause he just wants me to be happy and healthy!
Anyways, that's all I can think up for now! 2 more weeks till we find out gender ahhhhh!! Jason wants a boy (mostly for soccer purposes) and I hate saying I want this or that cause I'll be happy with whatever BUT I am kind of getting more and more excited about possibly having a little girl! Whatever we have, as long as it has those Shiflet genes I will be a happy mama :)
