Just popping in today for a Baby E update! I’ve decided to do them every other week and will likely be posting them on Saturday or Sunday. Also – if you want more updates, be sure to follow Baby Ellingson on Instagram!
How far along are you? 16 weeks, 1 day
Cravings: Hot sauce and burgers. All. The. Time.
Food Aversions: Nothing has been TOO repulsive but I have noticed after I’ve eaten certain things (particularly an apple and a Jimmy John’s sandwich) I have felt like I never want to see one ever again. Weird.
Weight Gain: I had a doctor appointment this week and am up 9 pounds.
Fears: Still – the flu. I swear some of my patients use no common sense and come into the clinic sick as dogs. Who wants to do physical therapy when they’re sick?! Stay home, people! Okay, my rant is over.
Generally Feeling: Great! I have had some increasing low back and hip pain this week, which has made it uncomfortable to drive, sit through a movie, or sit on a hard surface. I’m also waking up quite a bit at night to switch sides because my hips will start aching if I’m on one side too much. Other than that, I’ve been keeping up with my regular exercise routine, which is nice!
Looking Forward To: Feeling the baby kick! We were at a movie yesterday and I *swear* I felt a little flutter in my stomach, but I’m excited for an actual kick.
Miss anything: Wine. Oh man, do I miss wine.
Movement: Felt the first flutter yesterday!.
What I’ve Been Loving: Seeing my belly grow. I can even tell a difference between this weeks bump picture and last weeks. So fun!
Maternity Clothes: Yep. I actually tried wearing a normal pair of pants to work this week and as soon as I pulled them up I knew it wasn’t happening. Luckily I have a few pairs of pants from coworkers and a pair that I bought to fall back on, but I reallllly need to go shopping.
Boy or Girl: Will tell soon! 😉
Have a great Sunday! Leaving you off with a few of Baby E’s new friends:
