16 Weeks, Sickie Edition


How Far along: 16 weeks, 4 days

Total weight gain: -1 pound still.

Maternity clothes: Pants, some shirts. 

Sleep: Yes, please. Though it's been rough the last week, since I'm battling the chest cold from hell at the moment.

Best Moment this week: Feeling Hush Puppy more and more! C actually felt a wiggle a few days ago, HP always wiggles more when he rests his hand on my belly, and he got a palmfull of flutter. It was wonderful!

Movement: Yep :-)

Gender: I still think it's a girl, but it will probably be a boy. I've had another dream about HP being a girl though.

Labor signs: N/A

Belly button: In

Cravings/Aversions: Chicken chimichanga smothered in pork green chili, and cinnamon bears. Mmmm. Still no real aversions.

What I miss: Sleeping like a normal person. Wanting to have sex.

Stretch Marks: No new ones.

What is different this time around: Same stuff as last week. Also, thanks to the chest cold from hell, I currently pee myself a little every time I cough, thanks to the kid sitting on my bladder. Thank goodness for pantiliners. At least it's just a pregnancy thing, but not one I had with J, since he's the one who killed my pelvic floor muscles.

What I am looking forward to this week: Getting over this damn cold, so I don't piss myself all the frickin time. I took a sick day from work, since it was a rare day when I had nothing scheduled, but oy. I actually have bags under my eyes from lack of sleep. I coughed intermittently for 4 hours last night after going to bed, and didn't even drift off until after midnight. On the upside (I guess?) my primary care doctor said I don't need to go in unless I am having shortness of breath or wheezing. Apparently coughing up bloody phlegm is no big deal, alarming though it may be.
That was a bit of a rant, wasn't it? Sorry about that. I'm also looking forward to finishing Voyager, book 3 in the Outlander series.

Just discovered your blog through "The Bump"! I love the format of your update posts! Would you mind if I used some of your "questions" as a template for my own updates?
