16 Weeks Update

I can't believe I'm already going into my 17th week of pregnancy! It's crazy how quickly time is going and it's so exciting! This week was quite momentous as we booked a private scan to find out the gender as we're way too impatient. Thankfully after a lot of poking to get baby moving in the correct position, we found out the gender!

La Vida Fresa 16 Week Pregnancy Update
Baby's first present!
How far along? 16 weeks and 6 days.
Total weight gain: 0 lbs, back to pre-pregnancy weight after my morning sickness weight loss.
Maternity clothes? Still the same as last week, just the jeans so far. 
Stretch marks? Stretch marks also pretty much the same, a few on my sides and my inner thighs.
Sleep: Up and down. Some nights I sleep great, others not so much. Ollie works different shifts so it depends. When he works nights I never sleep as well.
Best moment this week: Finding out the gender of our baby! Also going home to see our families. We bought the pram and car seat this week too. Very organised.
Miss anything?  Drinking copious amounts of hot chocolate, chocolate in general and runny eggs this week weirdly.
Food cravings: Chinese food. Not sure if it's pregnancy related or not as I used to crave a lot of various foods but this week in particular it's been chinese!
Anything making you queasy or sick?  Again, the same as last week, generally just the cats right now and gone off food.
Gender: It's a girl! :) we were both positive it was a boy so it was a huge shock but I'm delighted either way, girls clothing is much cuter! An all girl family on my side now.
Labour signs: Nope.
Symptoms: Back pain and a bit of kidney pain too when I don't drink enough, it's a hint to drink more!
Belly button in or out?  In.
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy!
Looking forward to: Seeing our baby again at the 20 week scan and buying more pretty girls clothing.

That's it for this week, I think I'll update next time when things have changed a little bit as most things are staying the same right now. Spring is just around the corner and I'm loving these sunny days! Let's hope it gets warmer very soon. I hope you're all having a fabulous week, halfway to weekend!
