Week 16 Update

Last week, was not one a good week for me for a few reasons, so I convinced my husband that there was only one way to make it all better; to find out the gender before the 20 week appointment! For those of you who don't know me personally, patience is not one of my best qualities (yes, I know I need to work on this before the baby comes), so I decided we weren't going to wait any longer to answer the most anticipated question....boy or girl?

That's right, my dreams and intuition were COMPLETELY wrong! I was so shocked and excited to learn that we were going to have a precious little girl! I guess it's time to pass down my bows and Lilly!

How far along?: 16 weeks, 2 days
Baby is the size of an: Avocado
Total weight gain/loss: 13lbs according to my last doctor's appointment.
The Bump: Nothing too obvious just yet, but I'm sure that will change in a few weeks.
Symptoms: Nothing too bad. Feeling pretty good these days!
Food Cravings: Just always hungry. My stomach growls as if I haven't eaten in days every 3 hours.
Anything Making Me Queasy or Sick: Nope
Sleep: Got my Snoogle last week so I'm thankful for that! I don't think I move at all during the night with it so in turn, I'm sleeping sounder.
What I miss: My Lilly Pulitzer dresses. I love wearing Lilly all summer, and now none of it fits.
Weddings Rings On or Off: On
Any Names Picked Out Yet: We are pretty certain about what we are going to name our little girl, but not ready to tell everyone just yet. Still haven't decided if we are going to make it public knowledge before she's born.
Gender Prediction: I said boy all along, but was completely WRONG! We are so excited to be having a little girl!
Movement: Last week I mentioned I might have felt some flutters. Starting to think I was wrong. Should be feeling something in the coming weeks.
Maternity Clothes: I'm definitely more comfortable in maternity clothes, but can still wear some of my normal clothes, so I mix it up.
Labor Signs: None.
Best Moment of the Week: Finding out we are having a baby girl!
What I’m excited about/looking forward to: Now that we know the gender, I'm really looking forward to planning the nursery!
