Being 16 Weeks Pregnant Update

Hello, Welcome! Today is my 16-weeks pregnant update. A few things to mention with you all, I am pregnant with my first child with my boyfriend of 10 years. We are expecting a baby girl who will be here on June 22 this summer. I’m over here taking notes and reading tons of information as I have no idea what to expect. One thing I do know is that I’m going to be a mother and there is nothing I can express truly how excited I am to have a mini-me taking over the household.

Every Saturday when I wake up in the morning the first thing I do is walk over to my bookshelf and grab my book called Your Pregnancy Week By Week. Every Saturday is adding another week to my pregnancy, therefore, I sit down with a glass of milk and start reading the new week that I am and what to expect.

Trust me, if you are a new mother to be this book is everything. I was originally Googling everything I felt and experience and doing that just scared me, the things I was reading was a little crazy and making me nervous for no reason when there is nothing wrong in the first place.

With that being said I feel a lot better once I hit the second trimester. I have tons more energy now and enjoy waking up early in the morning and going to bed early at night. I was never the one to get up early in the morning but ever since I am pregnant I have this wonderful sleep schedule right now (Been told not to get used to it, once the baby is here that will be all messed up)

Few things I noticed have changed and one of them is my baby bump. Of course, it’s getting bigger but I mean I’m having a bit of a hard time when I put some pants on or pick something up from the floor the belly is starting to get in the way meaning that the belly is no more squishy like feeling and more solid and I feel something like the baby is sitting on my bladder maybe? I don’t know but it’s a new feeling that I’m experiencing this week.

Another thing that is new this week is I’m starting to break out on my jawline and under my chin. I have a routine where I wash my face morning and night but from my reading, this is totally normal for pregnant women to experience, just a bummer!

Food Cravings for this week!

  • Cinnabon
  • Kettle popcorn
  • Mashed Potatoes

 

That’s a wrap! Thank you all! Catch my pregnancy update post every Wednesday!
