16 weeks!

For some reason, 16 weeks sounds really pregnant to me.  Not like, 9 months pregnant, but like "oh my god, I'm really pregnant."  And 16 weeks also means that I find out what this little bugger is in 2 short weeks!  One of which will fly by because, I'm leaving for vacation tomorrow!!

Ocean City here we come!

The weather looks gorgeous for the week, which is starting to make me really excited.  Of course, I haven't started packing yet {nope, not a single thing and we leave in the morning.}  And I'm still somewhat shocked over the fact that I'll be pregnant 2 vacations in a row {I want a beer on the beach, damn it!} But alas, it could be worse. I could be this pregnant...

Whew, that looks painful.

I doubt I'll be around here much next week, so be sure to follow along on Instagram!

Pregnancy: 16 weeks  

Weight Gain: 3 pounds

Sleep: Not terrible, although Reid has been sick with a summer cold, so he hasn't been sleeping that great.  Which means I haven't been sleeping that great either.
Gender: We find out August 30th at 18w1d. 2 weeks from today!

Names: No clue. Check out my name post here.

Feeling: Pretty good.  A little stressed out these past few days, but fine in general.

Health:  With my BP issues, I try to actively reduce my stress levels when I can, but that's difficult to do when things are so crazy at work.  Hopefully vacation helps!

Movement: Moving around like crazy!

Belly: This past week or two, I've been super crampy and uncomfortable.  Then a few days ago I noticed my belly looked so much bigger, all of a sudden. I guess it popped out.  I do think it looks bigger in my picture this week!

Also, for reference, here are my side-by-side weekly belly pics of my entire pregnancy with Reid. 

Next Appointment: OB Appointment: Thursday, September 5th at 19w0d {Um, that would be the day after Carter's very first day of kindergarten and 2 days before Reid's 1st birthday party.... If I could drink? I would. A lot.}  Next ultrasound: Friday, August 30th at 18w1d {my anatomy scan!!!}

Aww congratulations on your journey of new beginnings. I love seeing baby bumps. Theres something about it that puts a smile on my face. I have two, and I miss being pregnant. I really do. 16 weeks you're definitely pregnant babes. But you're gorgeous pregnant. congratulations in advance. I miss the movements. One of my old friends are pregnant right now and I see all the things she's eating on IG and realize -- damn I miss eating too. I use to eat for baby & I, now I eat and I feel guilty. haha. Good luck on your journey!

Haven't checked in on your blog lately so I just saw you're pregnant. Congrats! We're due a week apart! :) Gotta love those Aquarius babies! (Though I suppose I'm a bit biased since I AM one...)
