[she is 16 weeks pregnant]

How far along: 16 weeks (I'm a little late posting on 3/21, but here it is :))
Size: Avocado
Gender: We had a peek at this week's ultrasound. Little one wasn't really cooperating so we aren't 100% but we are pretty sure what it is! ;)
Symptoms: A lot of pulling and little cramps around the lower part of my stomach. The doc says that it's just my uterus growing. I also got a rash on my hips on the sides where I sleep this week. Skin is obviously more sensitive so absolutely no more scented laundry soap or dryer sheets for me. I should have known better but I threw some clothes in with Josh's and I'm pretty sure that's what happened.
Maternity clothes: Ya, no more regular pants. If it doesn't have a stretchy waistband, forget it. So I will be living in dresses and stretch pants until I cave and buy real maternity pants.
Stretch marks: None, yet!
Belly Button: Still in
Sleep: Sleep was hard with the rash hitting the sides that I sleep on but by the end of the week it cleared up.
Movement: Pretty sure I am feeling movement intermittently. It doesn't happen often but when I'm still and relaxing, sometimes I feel some little flutters. So exciting!
Cravings: Fresh fruit. I can't get enough fruit. I really want some watermelon so I cannot wait for all the wonderful watermelon goodness to come this season.
Changes from last week: Nausea is gone but allergies are running strong this week. I still am not sure if there is an underlying cold that is coming on but with tree pollen high, I definitely feel it in my face and throat.
Best moment of the week: Our appointment with the doc and getting to see the little bebe on the ultrasound again. Heart rate was at 138 and we got some wonderful pictures of its back. Haha, maybe at the anatomy scan in a month we will have some more views of this precious miracle.
Looking forward to: More movement. There are no words to describe how incredible it is to feel these little flutters.
Scripture for the week: Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go. - Joshua 1:9

I believe Sabre will be a regular feature on these pictures. :)
