My Pregnancy Journey- 16 Weeks
Thanksgiving week! What a great time to be a) pregnant and b) in the second trimester! Lately, I have been getting morning sickness basically every day which is weird cause I didn’t have that the first trimester. So it has been a pain trying to figure out what to eat for breakfast. Heartburn has also been an issue with me lately and nothing seems to work very well. But I did enjoy Thanksgiving feasting on all of the food and not feeling guilty about it!
What’s the Baby up to This Week:
• Baby is as big as a Avocado
• Baby’s listening to your voice, thanks to tiny bones forming in his or her ears.
• Baby’s growing hair, lashes and eyebrows.
• And baby’s forming taste buds
I’ve also started to do my baby registry. I found a great website called Babylist that allows you to link or incorporate everything you want from multiple website including Etsy! Here are some of the things that I have added to my registry:

My Pregnancy Journey – 14/15 Weeks
I had to write these two weeks together because I was sick with the stomach bug and a cold. So these two weeks have been pretty rough to say the least. However, I did get to go to the doctor and got to listen to the heartbeat. The doctor said it was a strong 140 bpm. I was also worried cause it was hurting me to lay on my side when I was sleeping and I didn’t want to hurt the baby. The doctor reassured me that it was still safe to me to sleep on my back. She said by the time that it was unsafe it would most likely be uncomfortable.
Of course, statistically speaking they say 120-140 is a boy and 140-160 is a girl. Our baby is making it about impossible to predict the sex until we see the baby’s face around May 6th.

After the attacks on Pairs, I decided to make sure my baby bump picture the French flag.
Now, I’m not gonna explain my pregnancy symptoms this week because I was sick and so don’t want to confuse the difference.
14 weeks pregnant
Baby at 14 Weeks:
• Baby is as big as a lemon
• Baby’s probably thumb sucking and wiggling his or her toes in there!
• Baby’s kidneys are making urine, and the liver and spleen are doing their jobs too.
• And Baby’s growing lanugo, a thin, peach-fuzz-like hair, all over – it’ll help keep the body warm!
15 weeks pregnant
Baby at 15 Weeks:
• Baby is as big as an orange
• You probably can’t feel it yet, but baby’s squirming a ton!
• Baby might even be hiccuping in there
• Baby’s making lots of progress: the joints and limbs can all move now
My Pregnancy Journey- 13 Weeks
Last week of the 1st trimester!! Can’t wait to meet this little nugget. Josh and I are still on the path to not find out what the baby will be until Baby Ackerman is born! Luckily the nausea has gone down. But I still get hungry all the time and I don’t want to eat ANYTHING. For someone who used to love food this is very hard, especially when I know I have to eat. Side note: I do eat, a lot. It is just hard process.
Still driving home at 5pm (for my 1 hr commute) is very HARD. I get nauseous during that hour and by the time I get home I do not want to eat anything.
I’m already feeling in the “Nesting” mode and want to have the nursery all ready and done, but got to wait patiently on my slow husband! lol
What is happening to Baby Ackerman at 13 weeks:
• Baby is as big as a Peach!
• Baby is forming vocal cords and teeth!
• Baby is still tiny but has fingerprints!
• Baby’s intestines are moving from the umbilical cord to their more permanent place, in the tummy.
• Baby is 2.9″ long and weighs .81 oz.
