Pregnancy: Week 16

16 weeks!  I'm more than excited to be this far along in my pregnancy.  Not only do I have more energy, but I feel so much better in general.  Although my body is changing everyday, my mind is much more at peace now that I'm in my second trimester.

16 weeks

Let me just say, this dress is getting tight.  This thing will not last through forty weeks and I'm pretty sure I'll have to size up by twenty weeks.  My belly seems to be getting bigger every single day!  A woman actually asked me yesterday when I was due and I couldn't have been happier.  If I'm wearing a fit and flare dress and you can see my belly that means I finally look pregnant!  I'm also starting to get people who like to rub my belly.  I know some people think that's invading personal space but I absolutely love it.  As long as I know the person, they're more than welcome to rub it :)

While I haven't had any weird cravings yet, I'm absolutely obsessed with shrimp.  I could eat it all day every day... I'm actually cooking some right now!  I will admit that I haven't been eating healthy at all.  Pre pregnant me could eat whatever I wanted and maintain my size.  While I have gained about nine pounds so far, I feel immense guilt that I haven't been feeding my baby with with the healthiest things.  I obviously have a discipline issue and I'm hoping to curb that ASAP.

Baby so far is doing wonderful.  It has a nice strong heartbeat and growing at a nice pace.  Apparently it's as big as an avocado right now?  We found out the sex (finally!) and once our family and friends are in the know I'll be sharing with you too.  I can't wait to make the announcement!
