Baby #3 will arrive by early April! Jack has no idea what is happening, and Michael told me he wants a sister- but he wants it to be cousin baby Sara. So I guess we adopt Sara and give my sister and brother-in-law our new baby.
Until I started this survey I hadn’t really thought much about this pregnancy. The other two kiddos keep me preoccupied so I keep forgetting I’m growing a human.
How Far Along: 16 weeks
Size of baby: An avocado.
Sleep: I get up once or twice during the night for the bathroom. I’m still sleeping comfortably on my tummy.
Symptoms: So very sleepy, but other than that, feeling good. No sickness at all.
Cravings: Nothing really.
Gender: Don’t know yet. I actually want to be surprised this time but Bob wants to find out. I guess I could go either way.
Movement: Yup, little flutters once in a while.
Maternity Clothes: I’m wearing yoga pants or maternity pants but my normal shirts.
Best Moments this week: Looking forward to pumpkin patching with the kids this week, and maybe some apple picking.
Random Fact: Baby can hear us this week.
What I’m looking forward to: A family friend has been finishing our bonus room which will be the baby’s room. We have shiplap on a wall in there and I can’t wait to decorate the whole nursery.
Milestones: I think each day that we survive with two toddlers is a milestone.
Dreams: Hmmmm I can’t remember any specifically this week but there have been weird ones.
Gosh, there is no way we will get a nice picture of three children together. It was bad enough with two: Jack tried to eat a rock and kept crawling away, and Michael kept leaning backwards and trying to eat the pumpkin stem. Our xmas cards will be spectacular “fails” for years to come.
Here is the 16 week belly shot. This is what I looked like full-term with Michael. Oye. (p.s. I’m going to let you in on a life hack that I came up with on my own. I didn’t even get this idea from Pinterest so it is super special and I’m only bringing it up because you can see it in the photo below. I hated having a Listerine mouth wash container on the counter so I bought a pretty glass soap dispenser and put the mouth wash in it. You’re welcome.).
