Oh Baby!! 16 Week Bumpdate

Here we are again.  I hate that this blog has turned into doing bump dates only.  I don't know what it is about being pregnant, but any extra time I have is spent resting/doing nothing. 
I miss blogging and I can't wait to get back in the swing of things.
Let's hope right into week 16!

How far along? 16+2 weeks 
Baby's Size: Avocado
Gender: We know, but we are still going to keep it to ourselves a little more longer.
Weight Gain: Unsure.  At my 14 weeks ultrasound I was down 3 pounds, but I will get an update at next weeks appointment.  I would say I am at least back to pre-pregnancy weight, because this belly is fully in charge.
Baby's Movement: Yes!  I am so happy to finally be feeling these little flutters.  I'd say I feel the baby move 10 times a day if not a little more.  I have to be really still and concentrate so I know I am not missing them.
Maternity Clothes: Maternity pants are heaven.  Heaven I tell you.  They are so comfortable and help with the expanding of the belly as the day goes on.  Regular shirts are still being worn, but I know it is coming to an end soon.
Sleep: Pretty good.  I try and go to bed no later than 10:00pm.  Some nights I am fast asleep by 8pm.  No complaints here though.  I get up to use the bathroom at least once a night, but the tossing and turning is what keeps me from getting a perfect nights sleep.
Belly Button In/Out: Still in.  It never popped out with Griffin so I would expect the same thing to happen this go around.
Stretch Marks: None.  I only got one (on my hip) with Griffin but I didn't find it until after I delivered him. 
Symptoms: Same as last week.  Exhaustion is not fun.  Luke is having to pick up more "parent duty" than I am in the afternoons because I feel so wiped out in the afternoons.
Cravings: None that I can think of.  Food wise I don't ever just have to have something because I am craving it.  I eat a pretty hardy breakfast but I tend to snack the rest of the day.  The amount I can eat is very little and if I do overeat, then I pay for it the rest of the day and feel horrible.
Miss Anything? My energy.
Best Moment This Week: Not baby related, but I am looking forward to my brother coming home next week.  We have not seen him since Griffin was 6 months old and even though it is for 2 days, I am going to be selfish with my time with him.
Worst Moment This Week: Me personally, I have not had a bad moment.

Looking Forward To: Picking out a name.  We know we want some type of family name, but nothing is telling us "Yes, that's it!"  We knew within seconds of finding out we were having a boy, that his name should be Griffin.  Who knows, baby #2 might be nameless until the birth.
How's Husband? Still wonderful!  The extra help with Griffin has been wonderful.  He has been in charge of bath time and has been giving Griffin his last Milk before bed.
