16 weeks!

How far along: 16 weeks, 2 days

Total weight gain/loss: 10 pounds (gulp--it is really packing on, suddenly). For the record, I think most of it is in my boobs. Holy cup size batman. I looked in the mirror this morning and yowza! I mentioned last time I thought I was getting a bump? Not so much. It looks more like I just lost my waist.

Maternity clothes: ALL pants are maternity at this point. My last pair of pre-preg jeans got packed away this weekend. No tops yet...way huge on me.

Stretch marks: Nope.

Sleep: Still dealing with MAJOR insomnia, and now some fun RLP that makes it feel like there is a gigantic rubberband in my uterus, whenever I try to roll over.

Best moment last week: Got to see McBabies again, and they are measuring really well so far!!!

Movement: Nope.

Food cravings: Still sweets. Nothing ever SOUNDS good. Dan asks what I want for dinner, and I can't answer, because nothing sounds good. I'm eating out of necessity, which is why I'm not certain where these 10 pounds just came from?!?!

Gender: Boy and Girl!!

Labor Signs: None

Belly Button in or out: In

Other random yuckiness: I still have horrible headaches. They gave me a script, but it is this horrible UN-coated pill that tends to disolve in my mouth before I can swallow, which in turn makes me want to hurl. Needless to say, I'm trying to deal with the headaches without the pill, but it *does* help, when I do take it.

I'm getting out of breath more quickly when I walk up stairs. This didn't happen as early with Sophie.

My boobs are starting to make those lovely changes that are so common in pregnancy. Ick.

I have a bump on my neck that looks like a mosquito bite. I had the same thing when pregnant with Sophie. It has to be related.

Insomnia continues to be my WORST enemy.

What I miss: A full nights sleep.

What I am looking forward to: Hmmmm...at this point, now that we know the sexes, I'm going to have to go for movement. I'm ready to feel some little bubbles in there, but I know it will be awhile longer.

I don't think it'll be much longer for you to feel movements! I'm so happy all is well (a part from the insomnia and the headaches!) and I'm sure you look great. In fact, are you not posting pics this time??
Love, Fran
