16 weeks

How Far Along: 16 weeks
Size of baby: Avocado!! Avg length: 4.6 inches, Avg weight: 3.5 oz
Fun Facts: Tiny bones are forming in the babies' ears... they can now hear us talk to them!! Eyebrows, lashes and hair are starting to fill in and taste buds are forming!!
Total Weight Gained: Will know on Monday at next doctor's appt!!
Maternity Clothes: I'm still wearing my own blue jeans!!
Gender: We find out on MONDAY!!!!
Movement: Still waiting anxiously to feel that "first" movement...
Sleep: I'm still not sleeping that great. Multiple nightly trips to the bathroom have decreased a little over the last week. Thank goodness!! However, I'm really uncomfortable at night. Sleeping on my side is strange because my 'belly' skin feels like it's stretching sooo much (even with my preggo pillow); laying on my back, feels great to my back, but breathing is a little more difficult.. so, I flip and flop ...and... flip and flop!
Cravings:  Dr. Pepper. (Jay would not approve of this, since he is consistant in his "helping" keep a watchful eye over my caffeine intake..haha.) However, I do sneak a few little sips a day... it just tastes sooo good!!
Another thing this week that I fell head-over-heels for are the chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter icing I made!! They were absolutely A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! (Shhh.. I ate two. One for each baby.)
Aversions:  Still haven't braved Italian food again or anything with chili powder...
Symptoms: Feeling much better this week! Only 'symptom' is that my belly has grown almost double, or at least thats how it feels!!
Best Moment this week: Enjoying my husband being home in the afternoon when I get there! It's so nice when wrestling season comes to an end and we get to hang out more!! I love him so!!


  1. Hey Amy! Great job on the blog! You will really enjoy making this 'diary' of your pregnancy and everyone else will love seeing it. Amanda, Abby, and I started blogging when Amanda moved to Mexico. It was started as a way to keep up with the daily ins and outs of each other's lives. It is now a hobby of mine. I am also in the process of getting them printed in books of the years like a scrapbook. Anyways I am rambling, can't wait to read your next post. I added you to my blog list on the sidebar!! BTW, Jay suggested you making Max's cake this year after eating your AWESOME cupcakes on Sunday. I told him that would be great, but I thought you might be taking a 'maternity leave' from cakes at least by June. LOL! Have fun blogging and loving those babes!

  2. I was addicted to Dr Pepper too! Congrats again, you look so cute!
