Our Baby Cakes is now looking much more like how he/she will look when they're born! Baby's ears and eyes are now in the right positions more toward the front of his/her head. Toenails are growing, baby's heart is now pumping 25 quarts of blood per day, and baby will start doubling in size in the next few weeks!
He or she is 4.5 inches long, about 3.5 oz in weight, and is the size of an

I have gained 4 lbs so far. Yay for getting fatter! ;)
Well...I need them soon. AND GUYS. My husband Tom said the other day, and I quote, "We need to go on a summer clothes shopping spree soon!" A man said that. A husband said that. Willingly. WHAAAAT?? ;) Haha no but we really do. So hopefully we can go soon because my shirts are taking a little bit of a beating with this growing belly.
Sleep has been interesting. I guess not really the sleep itself but falling asleep. I've been such a night owl lately. I think I'm a night owl at heart but I usually go to bed around 10 or 10:30 just because I have a toddler who gets up at 6:30. Lately I will stay up until 12 or 12:30 just because I have energy...weird right?
Best Moment From Weeks 15 +16
I felt the baby move for the first time right after I turned 14 weeks!! I couldn't believe I was feeling him/her so early but there was no mistaking it. I felt the baby push up in one spot on my belly and they stayed there for about 5 seconds then sunk back down into my belly again. It was so sweet! I missed that feeling of a baby moving inside of me so much and it was so incredible to know baby is in there safe and sound :)
I also got to hear the baby's heartbeat for a full 30 seconds! Haha it was really special. I love hearing that sound :)
Still fast food, and anything savory. I usually have a huge sweet tooth but during this pregnancy it's been all about the savory foods. Pretzels, chips, popcorn...I want it all!
This is so weird but diapers. ANY diapers. Pee, poo, anything. They make me gag! I mean, it's nothing new to me. I've changed diapers every day for over a year so I'm used to pretty much everything but for some reason I just cannot stand them lately! I pass Charlotte to Tom whenever he's home and that's been a huge help. During the day I'm on my own though and she just laughs at me when I change her diaper. Haha this too shall pass...
Yep. I still think baby is a boy. We find out on July 6th and I cannot wait!! Only a few more weeks! Hopefully baby cooperates!
Nope nope nope nope nope nope nope
- My gag reflex is still crazy. Brushing my teeth, changing a diaper, or stick a pen in my mouth to hold it with my teeth while I do something else? Yep. I'll gag. Ew.
- I still get hot sometimes but thankfully they've decreased a LOT and I only get them if I'm running around the house to get things done but then I'll just sit on the couch under the ceiling fan and I'm okay again after a few minutes.
- My back is broken. Not actually broken of course but it's killing me. If you didn't see my Life Update post that I put up the other day you can find that here! But basically, my lower back has been hurting so badly that I can't move sometimes. I'm going to my first physical therapy appointment on June 30th so hopefully they're able to find the problem and fix it. It's been a little ridiculous and quite painful to be honest. I'm trying to stay positive though! :)
- I have also noticed that I get dizzy every time I get up off the couch or out of bed too quickly. That's completely normal but just...inconvenient!
Happy or Moody?
Mostly happy thankfully! Everything is going great and I feel so blessed to be carrying this new little life inside of me. I can't wait to kiss and snuggle him or her in November!
My Midwife Says...
She said that everything is going amazingly with my pregnancy and that baby is just the right size and has the perfect heartbeat. I'm so happy :)
Well that wraps it up for weeks 15 and 16 of my pregnancy! Sorry this post is so late but...crazy life things have been happening. Again, click here to see my Life Update post from the other day.
I hope you all have a wonderful day and I'll see ya later!
