Weeks 16-18

I'm almost 19 weeks, so I'll do another update this week. Tomorrow at 10 a.m., we find out the gender of this little one, and it's safe to say we couldn't be more excited to know! As Barry has stated, it will be nice for this baby to have an identity. And, I'm chomping at the bit to shop. I still am not really leaning in either direction, but if I absolutely had to choose, I guess I'd say boy. 

Weight Gain/Loss: + 4 lbs. Not sure where it is other than my chest.

Maternity clothes? While my regular clothes (including pants and leggings) are still fitting comfortably, I am also loving my bright red maternity jeans and my faux leather maternity leggings—mainly because they are cute. I'm still able to wear regular tops, sweaters, jackets, and workout gear. 

Sleep: I'm getting 8-10 hours a night. LOVE IT!

Best moments lately: Spending time with and hosting family over the holidays!

Hearbeat: 170 at 8 weeks, 154 at 12 weeks, I forgot what at 16 weeks—oops!

Food cravings: Nothing in particular.

Food aversions: None lately.

Gender: WE FIND OUT TOMORROW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pregnancy symptoms: Round ligament pain, lower back pain, frequent bathroom trips.

Exercise: Still continuing with my regular classes at the gym: Total Strength, Cycle Strength, and Cardio Dance. I have also added a 40 minute prenatal pilates DVD for at-home workouts that I love.

What I miss: Champagne, raw sushi, medium rare filets.


  1. Can't wait to hear the news!!!!!

  2. Ahhhgg I feel like a fatty, I'm almost 20 weeks and I have been wearing maternity pants for a month! Mostly because they are so much more comfortable. Yay for finding out the gender tomorrow. Can't wait to hear the new.


I heart comments. FOR REAL!
