Bump Update: 16 Weeks

How far along? 16 weeks!
Total weight gain/loss: Still holding around 3 pounds. Doctor said my weight gain was perfect so far, which was a relief because I was a little worried I had not gained enough. Never thought I would say that.
Maternity clothes? Still wearing everything I usually have. I'm trying to plan ahead and see what basics I would like to incorporate for winter so I might purchase some things soon.
Stretch marks? Nope.
Sleep: Mostly good, I was super busy this week. I even snoozed a little in the car on Sunday, something I never do!
Best moment this week: By far, getting to hear our sweet baby's hearbeat again at the doctor. Stephen recorded it and I cannot tell you how many times I have replayed that sweet sound.
Have you told family and friends: Yep!
Miss Anything? Not too much.
Movement: So I've felt a few things that I'm not sure I can call movement just yet. Apparently once you know for sure you can look back and decide if what you felt was actually the baby. While the nurse tried to hear the baby's heartbeat, it would not hold still! She said it was a very active baby.
Food cravings: Nothing crazy. Loving my daily serving of grapes...I think we have bought a bundle each week since I found out I was pregnant.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Still no avocados.
Have you started to show yet: I believe so, although most of the clothes I wear don't show it.
Gender prediction: Just two more weeks!!
Labor Signs: No
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off? On
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy
Looking forward to: Thinking a little about how we are going to do a gender reveal once we find out. We will see what we come up with!
