16 weeks and bumpin' hard

I hope this is my last bathroom selfie, but I am lacking in time my friends!

How far along? I am 16 weeks today! I love Thursdays :)

Baby size: Baby is the size of a turnip, according to my what to expect app! I have yet to watch my weekly video, and it’s often one of my favorite things to do on Thursday.

Weight gain: Oh god. I think I might avoid this question for a little while longer.

Maternity clothes: NO, but I NEED TO GET TO BUYING! My neighbor was laughing at my jeans + belly band situation yesterday. She said “TESS! You need to make the switch girl!” I am actually going shopping today, and have a few pairs of pants that were given to me that I need to get hemmed. And Jenn gave me maternity workout pants that feel like heaven. So I am sure moving in that direction! What’s hard is maternity clothes are just not cute. has cute stuff, so hopefully I can shake my maternity clothes fear soon!!!!!

Stretch marks: Not yet. And I started using bio oil about 2 weeks ago!

Sleep: Pretty good. I am starting to take afternoon naps which help me get stuff done around the house.

Gender: It’s a girl! We found out this past weekend at our gender reveal party!

Movement: not yet.

Best moment this week: Definitely finding out what we are having. Gender reveal parties are so much fun!

Looking forward to: Morning sickness being completely gone. I am sure hope it’s over by the 18 week mark. 90% of women are completely done with morning sickness by then, so fingers crossed.

Food cravings: Honestly, I don’t have many cravings. My food aversion has been so bad, it’s more like “what can I eat today that doesn’t sound disgusting?” Which usually equals cinnamon rolls. Go figure.

Weirdest food I ate this week: brown rice with ground turkey meat mixed in.

Anything making you queasy or sick: haha.. too many things make me queasy. The worst is opening the refrigerator, and waking up on an empty stomach. I also cut back on Zofran this week, and I couldn’t believe how queasy I still was. That pill is a lifesaver! But again, I am trying to wean myself off.

Labor signs: def not.

What I miss: Having control over my body and usual laid back eating style. I was never a picky eater. “Tess you want to go get indian food?” “Sure!” Now eating has become SUCH a struggle! It’s been lots of muffins and bagels over here!

Symptoms: Morning sickness, food aversion, backaches if I move around too much and … a very slight “lightning crotch” ..totally TMI but google it if you are curious :)

Workouts: I took a walk on Tuesday. First in a long, long time.

Things that suck: Morning sickness

Things that don't suck: Just overall feeling like you get a hall pass in life :)
