16 Weeks

Hudson belly week 16 3

Hudson belly week 16

How far along? 16 Weeks

Baby's size? The size of an avocado :)

Weight Gain? I have gained about 8 pounds so far. This whole gaining weight thing is not very fun ..but totally worth it :)

Maternity clothes?   um yes, I know I jumped on the bandwagon early but I just hate feeling my pants get tighter.

Stretch marks? none yet

Belly button in or out? still very in!

Sleep? Um that one is okay. I am still getting up about 3-4 times to go pee during the night. Lately I have been waking up at about 3am wide awake and it takes me a while to get back to sleep.

Foods I am loving? Still Watermelon. Since the weather has been pretty cold I think my watermelon consumption has slowed down but it is still there :) I have also still been craving steak and yogurt.

Foods I am hating? None really right now.

Best moment this week? Finding out we are having a little boy :)

Movement? None that I am feeling yet but according to the ultrasounds he is pretty active.

Symptoms? I tried to stop taking the zofran to see if the nausea is still there and it is so I went back on. Other than that I have been feeling pretty good. Some round ligament pain though.

Gender? A Boy :)

What I miss? Long runs. Since it is starting to get nicer outside I am really missing those Saturday morning 8-15 mile runs. I have also been really missing coffee and diet coke!

What I'm looking forward to? Having my belly pop out..I was told the other day that I don’t even look like i’m pregnant. Also, working on the nursery. OH and feeling him move :)

Milestone: the gender reveal

Emotions: Pretty good. I feel that now that we know what we are having it has gotten a lot more real. It is so much fun to be able to call him by name!


  1. You're so thin. You're going to cute when your little belly starts showing more.

  2. Awwwwww congrats on finding out it's a boy!!!!!!!! So fun!!!!!!!!

  3. I gained 10 lbs in the 1st trimester because I felt so bad, but it tapered off and I ended up gaining 30 lbs. :)
    I had the same sleep thing also! There were SO many nights that I woke up at 3:00 am and couldn't go back to sleep, that was when I caught up on all the blogs in my reader. ha! :)

  4. Little boys are SUPER fun! I don't have any yet, but have lots of friends with little ones! They have so much energy :-)

    Your little bump is adorable!

  5. Aww you look just darling - can't wait to see you in person soon! You really don't look that pregnant yet, it's because you were so thin to start with, which is great for a pregnancy because you will stay fit! xo!
