How far along: 16 weeks {4 Months}

How big is the baby? the size of a Avocado

Total weight gain: 10 pounds 

Maternity Clothes? No, I've just been wearing tons of dresses.

Stretch marks? I was hoping I didn't have to say yes to this! But, yes, I now have light yellow ones at the bottom of my stomach

Sleep: My sleep has been great, whenever I finally do go to sleep! Lol {I'm a night owl so I'm pretty much up all through the night, which I'm looking at as a good thing when the baby comes everyone says the baby wakes up every 2 hours for a bottle, so I'll be up! :0) }

Best Moment this week: Hearing our baby's heartbeat again for the third time and Going on a little date with my Teddy! DJ and I went to the Lemon Festival. It's an Annual festival that they have every year in the city I grew up in. My whole family goes every year but this year it was only DJ and I. And let me just say, Mama ate good!

Miss Anything? clear skin, but my breakouts are getting better.

Movement: No, but the baby is kicking, moving, and punching but I can't feel anything yet.

Food cravings: I literally have to have Fruit everyday! I crave it 24/7! This week just to name a few I had a Fruit 'n yogurt parfait with Strawberries inside, I had frozen peaches, and 3 days in a row I had to have a yellow apple with Tajin!

Mood most of the time: Happy and very Anxious to see the baby! 

Looking forward to: My Dr appointment on May 13! We FINALLY get to see the baby!

Baby names? Yes, we already have a boy and girl name picked out.

Thoughts: This week I became 16 weeks and I'm feeling great. Baby Evans is the size of an Avocado. {4 1/2 inches long and 3.5 ounces} Our baby is going to be growing double in size over the next couple of weeks and his or her arms and legs are now the length there suppose to be. I'm so happy because even when the baby couldn't hear me before I would still talk to the baby everyday, but now our baby can hear my voice. So, now when I read my bible I read it out loud so the baby can hear and I'm always sing {I literally sing everyday} but now I especially sing to the baby. My favorite song to sing to the baby is Judy Garland's "Somewhere over the Rainbow". When Princess was a baby I use to sing it to her and now I get to sing it to my very own baby. I feel so blessed and Happy!

Thoughts: This week I'm 13 weeks and Baby E is the size of Peach. Our baby is 2.9 inches and is now 0.81 ounces. This week was a very ruff week for me. You wouldn't think how sick I got because last week I was feeling great! But I was sick the entire week. It felt like I couldn't walk and I had no energy. Sometimes DJ would even have to help me up on my feet I was so dizzy. It was one of the worst feelings in the world to feel sick and helpless. I couldn't cook or clean and I was nausea the entire week. I was nausea morning, noon, and night! My stomach was so upset everyday. The only thing that made me feel better was Ginger Ale. Ginger Ale became my best friend. I drank it 24/7 and it was the only thing that kept the morning sickness at bay. I was so happy because Canada Dry is my favorite drink so I always keep it in the house and it became real handy. I even went to Winco's and brought some Ginger Tea and drank it at night.
