Christmas week is here and it is so nice to finally start to wind down to spend time with family. This week the baby is the size of a dill pickle and I am anxiously waiting to feel him kick but nothing so far!
We won’t have another ultrasound until mid January so I am happy that the holidays and 2 of our best friends having weddings back to back weekends will keep us busy while we wait.
Here is a run down of week 16:
Symptoms: I had the WORST migraine I have ever had in my life this week. It has been weeks of having a headache but this was unlike anything I have ever had. Trips to the bathroom in the middle of the night are happening more often in between some of the weirdest dreams that are too crazy to even explain. Other than that minor indigestion and feeling energetic. I am starting to get the itch to start his nursery but will hold off until at least February or March.
Weight Gain: Nothing yet but definitely seeing my tummy expanding.
Cravings: Nothing this week but I did enjoy a shameful amount of Christmas cookies!
It is hard to believe that next Christmas we will have a 6 month old! We have been dreaming of bringing him to visit Santa, spending time with our families as first time parents, starting our own special traditions and spoiling him with gifts although it will still be early for him to know just how magical Christmas is. My dad has read The Night Before Christmas every year to me since I was born and this year we FaceTimed so he could read it to the baby. It was so special and I can’t wait for him to read it to him in person next year.
Wishing you all a VERY merry Christmas and looking forward to ringing in a wonderful New Year!
