16 weeks

Another week gone by, and always lots of updates!

This week I did a lot better with my new found appetite, I didn't feel quite as limited in what I could do for fear of needing to stop somewhere to get a snack (or two or three). I bounced back from my cold, but I still have some lingering stuffiness and a cough now and then. I also still need to take moments to rest when they are available to me, but thankfully I didn't have any absolute exhaustion episodes like I did last week!

We did a lot of "nesting" this weekend and finally put in some real work into our guest room (which I guess I just need to start calling the baby's room). We did a major overhaul of the closet to unpack boxes that were still hiding from our move and to get rid of all the clutter. We made some good decisions and threw away or donated pretty hefty boxes, but at the end of the day... that closet is still pretty full. Hope baby bug doesn't mind sharing for now!

TOMORROW is my next midwife appointment which we've been looking forward to for the past 6 weeks! I think we're both so anxious to learn more about what's going on with our bug, and of course, to hear the heart beat! This week my phone tells me that baby is roughly the size of a turnip, or with it's legs uncurled... the size of my open hand.

I think my baby bump is starting to actually become more noticeable to others this week, but I'm definitely still in that phase where no stranger would dare to ask me about my protruding stomach. As much as I'm not ready to be HUGE, I am excited to soon be out of the "hmm, wonder if she's pregnant?" zone haha

Lastly, I think I learned this weekend why all the pregnancy books suggest exercises like... walking. I went to my first zumba class since baby bug made its way into my belly, and my lack of abs was not favorable to say the least haha. I feel so silly for how sore I am after just an hour class, so next week I might need to go back to less strenuous workouts. Ooops. Some other new developments: I don't feel like I have to pee constantly anymore, when I'm sitting down at least. But as soon as I stand up? Time to run to the bathroom! Also I've been having some pains in my mid back after I eat which usually go away if I have a chance to lay down, but if we're out or I'm at work... boo, I'm pretty uncomfortable.

Lastly here are some photos from yesterday, we hung up some things in the guest room that may or may not stay once the baby arrives, and we also rearranged the photos we have displayed in our living room:
