How many weeks? I’m 16 weeks!
Maternity Clothes? I picked up a bunch of non-maternity shirts this weekend – mostly at Old Navy & Target in mediums and larges to give me more room. The larges are still huge in the arms and neck area, but they are at least long enough to wear with my maternity bottoms. Maternity tops are still pretty big on me.
How am I feeling? OK. Physically, I feel fine, but mentally, I’m still a little off. Just not my normal, perky, fun-loving self. It’s getting old, but I hope that it will get better once I pass the 24 week mark. I expect the 17-22 week period to be difficult for me. I just need to get though it and then I think the constant comparing to the Green Beans will mostly go away. Weeks 17-22 is when everything went down with my last pregnancy, so I am dying to get past that time.
Doctor’s Appointment? I have an routine appointment tomorrow. It’s just a standard OB check up, so I don’t think I’ll get an ultrasound this time. I hope that my progesterone shots will be delivered by then, so that I can take my first one with me to my appointment so they can show Josh how to give them to me.
Sleep? I still love my sleep, but my excessive need for it has been getting better.
Weight Gain? 8 pounds! Still a “normal” amount of weight gain, but on the high end in my opinion. Too much turkey and desserts, I guess!
Baby Preparation? I have the design and bedding for Taylor’s nursery all picked out, but I hope to wait until February before starting on it.
- Possible Wall Color:
- On the light grey walls, I plan to frame some of the designs from this wallpaper in large black frames:
- Flooring: The flooring is already in. It’s a super-dark walnut wood finish, so I will get some sort of an area rug for the room.
- Furniture: We are still unsure about the crib for the room. I really want a white crib, because it will contrast nicely against the dark wood floors, but I don’t want it to look “country”. So far all the white cribs we’ve seen have looked a little country and I’d rather it be more contemporary. We’ve got plenty of time to figure those minor details out.
Likes/Dislikes? My food aversions seem to have gone away. I think I’m starting to feel more “2nd Trimester like”! My appetite is back to normal too.
