Janelle In Real Life: perfect for summer & 16 weeks!


perfect for summer & 16 weeks!

Happy Tuesday! I hope you're all enjoying the summer and having lots of fun adventures. We are the most boring of borings right now because my toddler is sick and I'm still pregnancy-sick. Booooo! We did venture out for a little morning run the other day and both of us got a ridiculous amount of mosquito bites... that's what we get for trying to get out, right?
So I'll admit that these photos were taken when I was still in my first trimester and not showing, but I wore this very same outfit recently and it's a perfect pregnancy outfit as well! Gotta love flowy tops!

And now a little pregnancy update for anyone who's curious!

How far along: 16 Weeks
Total weight gain: 7 lbs! Which is surprising because of how sick I've been. I'm trying not to obsess about weight gain, but I'm doing my best to eat well and get a little exercise in everyday... hoping for a healthy pregnancy!

 Maternity clothes: Still wearing my regular clothes, but I've been using the hair tie method for my jeans and occasionally whipping out the belly band

Stretch marks: Not having to worry about those too much yet. When I start stretching more I'll be using my cocoa butter!

Miss anything: my energy level! And not having to constantly be eating something to avoid nausea.

Movement: There have been a few times that I thought I might feel some baby kicks, but it's still hard to tell. I'm sure in the coming weeks I'll be feeling more and more!

Food cravings: still potatoes, yogurt parfaits have been my go-to when I need a sweet snack, and  I've been especially fond of Mexican food!
 Anything making you queasy or sick: changing my toddler's poopy diaper (ew), and anything that has a strong smell
Have you started to show yet: There's a lil bump there!

Gender: We don't know yet... we'll find out in a month or so

Labor signs: no way, not yet.

Belly button in or out: definitely in!

Wedding rings on or off: on

 Happy or moody most of the time: I'm definitely not in a happy mood when I'm feeling sick, but I'm pretty happy otherwise! Husband would be able to answer this question better :)

Looking forward to: Finding out the gender and being done with sickness!

And don't fret, dear readers. I won't be doing these updates alllll the time... just every once in a while. Hope you all have a splendid day!
