I am officially 16 weeks and 4 days along with our little baby. I have been feeling better about eating but my energy level is still pretty low. I pretty much crash and burn around 3-3:30. Weekends are better but the work days are pretty tough because I don’t go home until 5:00.
I feel like my bump is steadily growing. I can still fit into a lot of my pre pregnancy clothes that were a little but too big on me before or pants that are low cut. I have one pair of shorts that fits so that is going to be an issue really soon. I bought a belly band to try out but my first attempt with it didn’t work out very well and I ended up not wearing it. I’m going to give it another try with some of my shorts.
My biggest focus for maternity clothes right now is for work since I spend the majority of my time there. I snagged a couple of pairs of pants on Target’s daily deal. One pair came already and I like them and the other pair is on the way. I’m not totally in love with the full panel right now but I’m hoping I get used to it.
We still have about 4 more weeks before we find out the gender. We are excited to find out and finally be able to answer all the questions we are getting about it! I feel like we will be able to finalize the nursery plans too once we know. I want to keep it mainly gender neutral but knowing will help me to decide for sure what we will do.
I think I might have felt the baby move. I feel these little flutters when I am relaxing on the couch or lying in bed. I’ve felt it enough times to be pretty sure that’s what it is. It’s a pretty amazing feeling know that my baby is moving around in my belly. I can’t wait until Mike can feel it too.
So here is the bump progress from the last two weeks. I struggle with taking this picture because it feels awkward to stand away from the camera so it takes a million takes. I’m trying to stick to a black top and bottom for the entire 40 weeks to really show the progress. I figure if I grow out of this outfit I will always have a long black tank and black pants :)
