Baby Snelson #2: 16 Weeks

Baby Size: 4.5" long and about 3.5 ounces
Weight Gain/Loss: Not sure yet

Gender: We found out the gender this week!! GIRL! still deciding on a name... 

Fit Mamma: I did very little still dealing with headaches and exhaustion 

Symptoms: Had a few good days this week, still low on energy and have to lay down a lot. I think the headaches are allergy related..I have never had allergies before, but it must have come with this pregnancy.. Claritin seems to really help me feel better! I seem to have energy from around 10am-lunch time then the afternoons get a little rough. Still getting light headed, and very fatigued. I can definitely tell I am getting better a little bit at a time, hoping the next few weeks are the turning point!   

Cravings: Most of the time food still sounds gross, but I did really want fried chicken one day

ClothesSome shorts are getting a little tight when I sit down, and since it is hot I am most comfortable in athletic shorts and t-shirt. And since I already have maternity clothes you better believe I have already been wearing them. 

Movement: I feel her roll a lot it feels like little bursts of pressure, I will feel the occasional poke.

Baby #2: 15 Weeks

Baby Size: about 4 " and around 3 oz
Weight Gain/Loss: Went to the Dr. on July 17th and I had gained 2 lbs

Gender: We find out 8.5.15

Fit Mamma: short walks or 15 min on the bike when I can, but that is not very often 

Symptoms: The first tri was honestly pretty hard..I rarely left the couch let alone the house. And I have had a hard time keeping my blood sugar normal so I do lots of little protein filled snack during the day. With Harlow this was the week when things started to turn around so praying I will get some energy back, and be able to play with my toddler again instead of bribe her to watch Paw Patrol so mommy can lay 

But this week I have had more good days than bad. I only had a bad headache 2 days out the 5 day week. I was also able to be a little more active, but I was reminded that I need to take it easy when I noticed some blood when I went to the bathroom. (This was the day before my dr app) It was no big deal I had just done a lot that day so now I know I need to use the days I feel good to ease back into normal life.

Cravings: None that I can think of, but still some food aversions 

Clothes: My athletic shorts are starting to get a little tight down on my little bump, but most things are still fitting ok. I just got my maternity clothes back from my sis in law so I will prob start wearing them just because they are way more comfortable!  

Movement: Felt the little nugget move for the first time this week! At first it was just little wooshes or light taps usually at night, but now the taps are a little stronger and Jacob felt it move on 8.2 

Baby #2: 14 Weeks

Baby Size: 3.5" 1.5 oz
Weight Gain/Loss: Lost in the first few weeks due to hives, but gained back to where I 


Gender: We find out 8.5.15

Fit Mamma: Don't even leave the couch very often, when I have tried to exercise my heart beats very heavy and I get pretty dizzy.

Symptoms: I have had pretty bad head aches and have had intense dizziness..not so much nausea this time around, but really bad fatigue and low appetite. Nothing ever sounds good. I have never been much of a nap person, but I cannot help but sleep sometimes during the day. I also have been pretty uncomfortable due to bloating in the evening, but have noticed it getting better. 

Cravings: Whatever sounds good at the time, otherwise I would rather not eat..We ate pizza for Jacob's birthday and I was not feeling like eating it but I did anyways BAD idea! I never want to eat pizza again.  

Clothes: All clothes still fit pretty normal, pants start to get a little tight in the evening. 

Movement: Nothing yet
