Entering the 16th week…

Category : Pregnancy

A little family update here at the Tidd Ranch….

Thing 3 or the wee itty bitty one or “I’m just going to believe it’s a girl”:

How far along? 16 weeks – confirmed due date of July 14

Weight gain/loss: I’ve been a “told” by my doctor that I’ve lost a pound since last time.  So the last few days I’ve tried to make up for that…..  This is all really weird to be told it’s bad that I’ve lost a pound when I’ve been working at that for the last 3 years.

Symptoms: No nausea anymore, food aversions a minimum now, a bit tired but not as bad as the first trimester.  I’ve had consistent headaches which is very odd for me both pregnant and not, but was instructed to drink Mt. Dew or Coke for the caffeine.  Ok!  :)

Gender: We officially decided (since that’s what we’re telling people now) that we are not finding out.  Gary’s banking on the fact that he’s going to be way outnumbered.  I’m still up in the air as I’ve had some different symptoms than before but this pregnancy is just way different all the way around this time.

Sleep: Just getting up with sickly little girls throughout the night, other than that, super!

Best moment this week: A sick day for Anna but we had a nice day together with a little shopping and ice cream therapy to soothe her strep throat.

Movement: Nothing yet but he/she should soon!

Food cravings/aversions: Sweets/salty foods, pizza, anything with red sauce – craving / Mexican food beyond tacos – aversion

What I am looking forward to: Having healthy girls again this week.  Ended the week with Anna and strep and started the new week with Izzy and a fever.  Also Anna is going to be such a little mommy.  On our shopping excursions, she wanted to buy the baby a Mickey Mouse onsie in blue.  I said well we don’t know what it’s going to be.  She said well it’s a boy now.  Hehe.  She also wanted to buy the baby a card.  So sweet.

Milestones: Preparing the move the girls together so we can start getting their new room together!

What I’m nervous about: So far, not too nervous about much

Size of baby in food: Avocado, 4.5″ long and 3.5 ounces
