16 weeks and counting...

I am so behind here...I meant to update on Tuesday after my appointments but I was pretty wiped out!  Both of my appointments went well. I am very happy that everything with Baby Nixon is going well so far...I dont take these moments/appointments for granted AT ALL, and I'll be the first to say that.  My cervix did shorten a little but is still at an average length and is still closed - which is a great start.  I will be monitored every 1.5 - 2 weeks by the Perinatologists, and so far every doctor I have seen has been wonderful.  I was cleared to return to work, which has made me extremely tired and sore at night.  Hopefully that will change soon.  I have another appointment and u/s on the 2nd of July (can you believe it is already July???) and I hope we can find out what we are having!  Here are my 16 week stats...

Pregnancy Highlights:

How Far Along: 16 Weeks

Size of baby: about the size of an avocado - 4.5 inches and 3.5 ounces. 

Total Weight Gain/Loss: Still "under weight" from the surgery, now lets not confuse this with underweight because friends, that is NOT my issue.  So I will just say that I just havent gained any yet.   

Maternity Clothes: Still in all of my regular clothes

Gender: Unknown...hopefully we will find out next week! 

Movement: I havent felt any movement yet

What I miss: nothing

Sleep: I have had no problem sleeping. I do wake up about every 3 hours to go to the bathroom but am able to go right back to sleep

Symptoms: During the 1st trimester I could hardly eat meat - that is starting to come around a bit but am still having some food aversions to meat and some other foods - I made spaghetti & meatballs for dinner last night and couldnt eat the meatballs/red sauce...

Cravings: Still the veggie bowls bowls from chipotle - I didnt think I would live to see the day I would ever get a meat-less meal from any where.

Best Moment this week: Knowing that things are going well so far.  Around 15-17 weeks is when I started having a few issues with Emma so it is just an uneasy time.  I am 16 weeks and inching my way closer... 

What I am looking forward to: My next appointment & u/s on the 2nd - hopefully we can find out if it is a boy or girl!  What do you think?? 

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, we are going out to dinner (Chipotle!) & a movie tonight with our wonderful best friends Dave & Tonya.  I am looking forward to it!  Happy Friday!


  1. I have been praying for you and wondering how things were going. And I'm going to go ahead and vote BOY. =)

  2. I'm glad to hear you're getting good news at your appointments...keep inching your way along. I'm thinking boy too.

  3. So glad everything is going so well! Hope you have a great weekend!!

  4. Good to hear that you're doing well, Angie! Can't wait to hear if you're having a boy or a girl! I'm never good at guessing but I'm gonna go with boy. Can't wait to hear names too!


Thanks so much for your sweet comments!
