Size of Baby Brewster: size of an onion and the bones are starting to harden!
Biggest Challenges: Feeling confident everything is ok with this pregnancy. I often wake up and I'm sleeping on my right side (they recommend pregnant mommas sleep on their left) or on my back so I worry that I've done something wrong. By 16 weeks I was confident I could feel Addyson move so I thought for sure I'd be feeling this baby by now. I need to remember every pregnancy is different and odds are everything is ok. Maybe I need to get a doppler so I can listen to baby at home when I'm worried. Like I need another thing to worry about these days!
Cravings: Sweets!!! These days I really crave Dr. Pepper. I think about it until I get one. I worry about the caffeine but I also craved it with Addyson and everything is okay with her. I was thankful with Melissa gave me her caffeine-free Dr. Pepper (non-diet) that you can't find around here!
Aversions: No real aversions. Just a short fuse
Gender: I say 100% girl!!! Especially if you look at the things I craved with Addyson, they are the same for this baby.
Movement: I really want to be feeling baby move but I just can't say for sure it is baby I feel verses a muscle twitch or something.
Sleep: Still need Unisom's help to get through the night. : (
What I miss: Don't really miss much this week. Just the normal stuff.
Maternity Clothes: Half and half. It thought I'd wear some of my cute clothes from my shopping trip last week but it has been cold so I haven't had a chance to wear the skirts and dresses. I'm noticing my "normal" shirts are getting a bit short on me so I'm wearing more maternity shirts.
Weight gain: No weight gain this week.
Emotions: I get frustrated easily and I cry at songs, tv shows, and just thinking about things. The tears don't flow heavily but I am moved to them.
Milestones: Nothing big this week. A big milestone for me would be remembering to take a weekly shot of my belly. For some reason, I remember but forget to ask Brad. One day I'll add a picture to these posts!
