16 Weeks-baby #2

So today I'm 16 weeks along in my pregnancy!

How I'm feeling/sleeping: Still not great. I'm still taking my unisom at night to help with the nausea. I tried not taking it over the weekend and the first night I slept ok, but the second night I was awake for 3 hours overnight for no reason! Then on Sunday I really felt sick again. So I took it Sunday night and slept like a rock and felt fine Monday. I tried skipping it again Monday night and again I was up for 2 hours overnight and then felt like crud all day at work yesterday. So I don't think I'm quite ready to stop taking it yet. I do hate that it makes me tired when I take it, but I think I'd rather be tired than feeling like I want to puke!

Appointments/events: Nada-I go next week!

Cravings/Aversions: Nothing very strong either way. I keep choosing saltier foods over sweet foods (totally not me at all)-cheese, pretzels, crackers, soup, lemon ice. Still not loving to eat anything-I do miss peanut butter and ice cream though-I just don't want it!

Movement: Hard to tell...I thought a few times I might have felt something, but then I don't feel it again so then I doubt myself. I'm sure it'll be soon though! I think with Avery it was around 17wks.

Avery's thoughts: She always says "hi baby" to my tummy and wants to kiss it-she'll come over and yank up my shirt to kiss my bare tummy! It's so adorable! We've asked her a few times if it's a boy or girl and almost every time she says a girl! I asked her what we should name it the other day and she told me "Fourteen"!! Nice!

My other shock is that I'm not in maternity clothes yet. I thought for sure I would be, but my shorts are still hangin' on! I'll find out next week what I've gained since my last appt.

Here is my photo from today (left) and my photo at 17wks with Avery (right):

wow, sounds like we have a lot of the same symptoms this time around! Esp the sweets...I'll even make something and then look at it, and not want it.. so strange!
Happy 16 Weeks!

You look adorable! Hope all the symptoms start to subside! Can't wait to meet the new member of the family.
