16 Weeks

16 weeks 9.21.12

How Far Along: 16 weeks  {9.21.12}

Size of baby: Baby Bangert #2 is the size of a avocado

Heartbeat: 140bpm at 16 week appointment

Total Weight Gain/Loss: +10lbs

Maternity Clothes: For the most part I’m wearing maternity pants.  Today I wore regular pants with the bella band, but maternity ones  are just so much more comfortable! I’m still wearing all my regular shirts…some are just a bit tighter than others!

Gender Predictions: Kyle is 100% sure we’re having a boy, like I’ve said in previous weeks, because my pregnancy has been different it makes me wonder if it’s a boy, but I know that isn’t necessarily an indicator. We find out in just 3 weeks!

Movement: Just a few flutters every now & then, nothing too consistent. I looked back at my pregnancy with Adelyn and I didn’t feel her move till after our 20 week appointment, but I guess it makes sense that I would feel baby earlier since I know what it feels like this time around.

Sleep: I’m sleeping great…once I get my pillows situated! I like to have one between my knees and hug another one.

What I miss: When everything in my closet used to fit me! Getting ready in the mornings can be frustrating. I need to pick out my clothes for the week on Sundays, so there’s no question in the mornings. And being able to stay up past 8:30pm!

Cravings: I thought I was craving a fountain diet coke, so I caved and got one {I haven’t had one since I found out I was prego} and it was nothing like I remembered and I dumped it out! I’ll stick with sprite & root beer if I need some fizz!

Symptoms: The tiredness is still hanging around. I asked Kyle what he wanted to do tonight and he asked why it mattered to me since I was going to be asleep early anyway. I guess he has a good point! 8pm rolls around and I’m ready for bed! I’m still falling asleep on the couch between 8pm-9pm and then Kyle wakes me up when he goes to bed around 10:30pm. It has actually worked out really well ‘cause then I get another potty break and don’t have to get up in the night to go.

Best Moment this week: We had our 16 week appointment, heard that wonderful thump, thump of our baby’s heartbeat, and scheduled our ultra sound for Oct. 15th! In about 3 weeks we’ll know whether Adelyn is getting a baby brother or sister!


  1. You are looking great!!! I think y'all are having a boy based on the heartbeat! Can't wait to find out!!!

  2. Congrats to you both! What a wonderful blessing from the Lord! Just know Oct 15 is Daniels birthday,maybe that will be vibes for your boy ;) My little boy turns 14!:)
