16 weeks!

This week marks the 16 week point for me! It's fun to look at pictures of my pregnant sister in law and cousin... I think I'm bigger than both of them and one is due in June (or July?), the other in August! I'm not due until September... I could be in for a big belly!! Not to mention a big baby if Josh's family history has a say in it...

After starting week 15 I broke down and bought a few maternity things. For the past few weeks I've mainly been wearing leggings and dresses, but now my dresses are starting to get too tight and just awkward. It was time to get some new pants and a few shirts that are more comfortable. I just want to say that I LOVE H&M! They have some really cute maternity stuff.

The past two weeks have been a little rough (other than the shopping), but I can't complain too much. The worst part about being pregnant is getting sick! You can only take certain medications and the tried and true meds for me are off limits right now. Last week I came down with a sinus infection and usually I take Mucinex D, but I had to take something else. At least it helped! After two days in bed, two sleepless nights and four days of rest, I'm feeling much better even though I'm not 100% yet. At least I can sleep through the night now without any issues :)

On Saturday night I really felt like my stomach was stretching and it was the strangest feeling. Everything inside of me felt like it was getting moved and my skin felt really tight. I guess little Bambino is growing! This week he/she is supposed to be about the size of an avocado and will double in size over the next week or two. I might be in for some more stretching!

Ok, that's all for now. I'm off to teach some English at Dior!
