Meet the Sullivans: B2 - 16 Weeks!

June 23, 2015

B2 - 16 Weeks!

How far along? 16 weeks!

Baby's size: About 4 1/2 inches long (head to rump) and 3 1/2 ounces, the size of an avocado.
 
Maternity clothes? I've pulled out my old ones and sorted through what I think I'll wear this time. I was working during my first pregnancy, so the wardrobe was a little different. I'll definitely need to buy some more casual pants and tops in the next few months, although I'm just depending on dresses and maxi skirts right now. 

Stretch marks? Not yet, although I did get a few with Owen.

Sleep: Improving! I sleep through the night, but usually wake up by 4:30 to use the bathroom. After that I can fall back to sleep pretty easily now and sleep until O is up.
Best moment this week: I just when Owen asks me how "our baby" is doing! It's the sweetest thing that he thinks of his little baby brother or sister!

Miss anything? Not too much. I almost forget I'm pregnant most of the time!

Movement: 

Food cravings: Popsicles, juice, lemonade. I'm always thirsty.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Still having increased motion sickness. I was watching Keith play a video game the other night and had to leave the room.

Gender:We'll find out next month at my 2nd trimester ultrasound! I don't feel any intuition either way!
Symptoms: Feeling large, a little lazy, but otherwise great!

Mood: Good!

Looking forward to: Finding out the sex and getting started on the kids' shared room!

Are we ready?: Getting there little by little! We've decided to have them share a room. We'll be switching Owen's room and the spare room since the spare room is a little big larger. Up until this point we had done pretty much nothing to get prepared, so making this decision will get the ball rolling.

LOVE your little bump! :) I've been relying on dresses so much too this pregnancy... I just feel so much bigger than I was last time at this point even though my belly still is quite small... I just still seems squishy and I can definitely see my body storing extra fat, which is totally ok it's all part of the process.


I can't wait to find out what you guys are having! We find out in just under 2 weeks and I can not wait!! :)

"Our baby" are two of the sweetest words; I love it when Liam says that! And I can't wait to see what you'll do with a joint room!

I had bad motion sickness with both of my pregnancies, too. It was awful, especially because we fly a lot! You look awesome! What a cute bump!
