{ 16 weeks }

How far along are you? ~16 weeks :)

Best Moment This Week: Spending time at the county fair with my husband and son. I wasn't able to enjoy much of the food (which probably wasn't a bad thing) but oh well. We had a really fun time checking out all the animals. Ryan just about freaked out when he got a balloon... that totally made his day because he loves balloons!

Prayer requests? I have been having a lot of sciatic nerve pain which has been on and off and basically impossible to deal with. I really need to make an appointment with my chiropractor! I also have still been sick, just really nauseous all the time. I'm feeling pretty good at the moment, though!

What scripture is speaking to you this week? Better than last week, I was in the Word two or three times as opposed to... none... the previous week. So I think just reading in general has been speaking to me; it's crazy how something can be SO BENEFICIAL to me and my day but yet I don't do it as often as I should. You'd think I would learn...

Baby's growth? Supposedly baby is the size of an avocado. MMM, yummy... one of my favorite foods (just not right now!). 3.5oz, 4.5in... still so tiny, but growing!!

Weight gain (or loss)? No official weight check yet, but I don't think I've gained anything.

Cravings: Sometimes lemonade. That very quickly goes away. Sometimes mints. Sometimes milk. Sometimes... hmm, that's it.

Food Aversions: Pretty much everything...?

What Made Me Cry This Week... my husband working 70+ hours and not being able to be home much. He is a very hard worker for which I am blessed, but he is also very missed! I also watched some home birth videos and they made me cry too ;)

Sleep? Ryan has been sleeping better, so I have been too. Teething comes and goes and those nights are rough, but for the most part, he sleeps 10ish hours straight.

Maternity Clothes? Not yet! 

Gender? Unknown to us at this point ;)

Movement? Like I mentioned in my last post, I felt baby move for the first time around 15 weeks. I've been feeling him/her move a few times since then, but not too much.

What I miss... having enough energy to be a good wife to my husband. Praying that it returns soon! But yet trying to understand that this is just a season. 

Something I'm Excited About... two more weeks until our next appointment! And then maybe two-ish weeks after that, we'll find out the gender...!! ;)

Oh how I miss going to the fair! I haven't been in years, plus I've been craving cotton candy, so going to the fair sounds extra appealing right now.

I will be praying for your sciatic nerve pain. That's not easy to cope with when you have a little one to care for.

Isn't it amazing how God's word gives us so much life and strength? I know I could use more time in it. It sure is our daily bread.

It's tough being pregnant and feeling like you aren't living up to your potential as wife and mom. Just remember, you are growing a life inside you, and that is an amazing thing!
