16 Weeks

Hard to believe I've hit the 16 week mark and I can't believe it's been three weeks since my last pregnancy update!  I will try to do a better job but I feel like there hasn't been much change.  I will say I've been feeling great and not as tired as I was in the first trimester.  Here's a few updates:
  • I went out and bought quite a few maternity items this weekend.  I've been able to wear some regular clothes with the help of the belly band but I think it's time to switch to full on maternity pants.  They are much more comfortable.  I haven't really "popped" but I think we're getting pretty close!
  • I'm still keeping up with exercising whether that is going for a jog, attended a cardio class at the gym or long walk.  I don't think I'll ever be able to cut this out and hope I can keep it up for quite some time.  I'm also looking into taking a prenatal yoga class here soon. 
  • Weight gain is progressing....  I don't plan on sharing an actual number but I'll just keep it as I'm in the suggested range :)
  • No cravings, still just find myself needing snacks more often throughout the day. 
  • I have an obsession lately with strollers.  There are so many options out there and I have no idea where to start.  Any suggestions???
  • Ryan and I plan on finding out the gender but we still have 4 weeks until we'll know.  The doctor likes to wait until the 20 week ultrasound and the wait is killing us!  Honestly, I'm more anxious to see the baby again and make sure everything looks good.  A boy or girl makes no difference to me but Ryan still thinks boy.  
  • We have a few names in mind but at this point we are keeping that to ourselves.  
  • In other news, Ryan and I celebrated our 4 year anniversary this past week!  We were pretty crazy and stayed home and ordered in a pizza.  It's not quite the same when you can't pop open a bottle of bubbly but we enjoyed our evening at home with each other and talking about the future.
16 weeks :)
