Another week down! Woohoo! I’m amazed at how quickly time is flying by…. which is funny, because much earlier in this pregnancy I felt like time had come to a standstill.
The past few days have been absolutely fantastic – warm, bright sunny skies… and I’ve gotten most of my energy back (thank goodness!) I’m glad I was able to get out and enjoy the pseudo-summer weather this past week, because apparently we’re headed back down into the low single digits… maybe even below zero. Eeeek!
How far along: 16 weeks
Energy: Almost back to normal, not quite there yet. Waiting patiently.
Current symptoms: Feeling great! This past week my energy has been on the rise and I’ve been feeling like my old self. Still getting up frequently throughout the night – will I ever get a break?
Sleep: Still not very comfortable, but I don’t expect that to change much.
Weight gain/loss: I’ve actually lost 2 pounds since last week; I think most of the weight gain was bloat/water retention and things are just evening out now.
Exercise: The weather was beautiful this past week, so I nixed the gym and did a lot more walking, about 1.5 hours each day. No yoga this week.
Next appointment: April 2nd with my midwife for a regular prenatal appointment. Can’t wait to listen to baby’s heartbeat again!
Guess on boy or girl: I’m still on the fence, but S is still adamant it’s a boy – go figure. What do you think baby #1 will be? Don’t forget to take my poll!
Looking forward to: Feeling baby move/kick for the first time.
What’s happening this week: Baby K is listening to my voice, growing hair, lashes and eyebrows…and forming taste buds.
