16 Weeks

I'm pretty sure that camera is adding (at least) 10 lbs; I really don't look this big in real life. I think.
 Pregnancy Highlights
How Far Along: 16 weeks
Size of baby: About 4.5 inches long, the size of an avocado
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Lost 2 pounds since my first appt. at six weeks (there's something to be said about chasing a toddler around all day; I had already gained 5 lbs at this point with Avery, although [for what it's worth] now I'm at the same weight as I was with her at this point)
Maternity Clothes: Don't need them yet! I did bust out the Bella Band (best invention ever) yesterday so I could wear my black pants to church. In all fairness though, those pants are too small even when I'm not pregnant. Ha! Maybe I should buy some new pants.
Gender: We find out on our anniversary (December 30)!
Movement: I'm the worst at paying attention to this (until it's too obvious to miss). So no, I don't think I've felt movement yet.
Sleep: I'm sleeping okay for now (I'm definitely not big enough yet to be uncomfortable; I know I'll get there though!)
What I miss: Coca-cola (I'm doing everything in my power to avoid kidney stones this time around), the option to drink Chuy's margaritas, and speaking of Chuys, I miss Mexican food (I have a huge aversion to it right now!)
Cravings: And we're back to cereal.
Symptoms: Loving the second trimester. I have so much more energy and practically no morning sickness.
Best Moment this week: It was kind of an uneventful week, pregnancywise.
