baby #2: 16 weeks

As of 5/24/14

Well here we are again! I can't believe I am back to doing these monthly bump updates so soon! I have been able to look back at them already to compare and even remind myself what I went through last time. It is funny how fast you forget everything (especially the bad things). This time around some things are exactly the same but most are totally different. I sometimes feel like it is my first pregnancy because of all of the new things happening. 

How far along? 16 weeks
Size of baby gautreaux? Baby Gautreaux is the size of an avocado 
Total weight gain/loss: -10 pounds! My doctor seems pretty concerned with this but I have been so much sicker this go round that it's not too much of a surprise. She says I need to start gaining weight soon!
Maternity clothes? Since I already had so much I pulled them out pretty early for the comfort but I don't really need them.
Stretch marks? The ones from Cooper were just starting to subside before I got pregnant but this time around I am using Bio Oil, so hopefully they won't grow too much more.
Sleep: It is all I want to do right now! Literally I could sleep all day and night. James is always teasing me because I can barely stay up past Cooper's 7pm bedtime! 
Best moment this week: James felt her kick! I have been feeling her since around 14 weeks and it has been killing James. He can finally feel her and it is the best. I just love seeing his face light up. 
Have you told family and friends: Yes! 
Miss Anything? OMG! I know I talked about missing a strawberry margarita last time but it is a whole new level this time!! It's so ridiculous, but so real. 
Movement: YES! Last time I didn't feel Cooper until around this time or a little later but I can feel her so much more this time. When we went for our gender ultrasound I asked the tech because I thought I was crazy, but she confirmed that I was feeling her. She said the second time around you know what it feels like so you normally feel it a lot earlier. I love feeling her all day long. It is the thing I missed most after having Coop.
Food cravings: Nothing! Literally I can barely eat anything. I sure hope this changes soon because I miss my food!  
Anything making you queasy or sick: Everything! I can't really pin point any one thing since it is pretty much 24/7.
Symptoms: Nausea and tired all of the time is pretty much the only things so far.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy
Have you started to show yet: Yep! She is finally starting to stick out. It is so strange how different each pregnancy is and how I was showing so much more at this point last time! When I was pregnant with Cooper I was told that with boys you have a basketball in your belly and with girls you get wider and that really is the case for me! 
Gender: Girl! 
Labor Signs: 
Belly Button in or out? In!
Wedding rings on or off? On and it is actually too big right now. It slides around my finger all day long driving me crazy!
Looking forward to: Our next ultrasound June 19th!
