Pregnancy #2 Update :: 16 Weeks

Read my first trimester update HERE
Read about my 16 week update from my first pregnancy HERE.  

How far along: 16 weeks
Size of Coffee Bean:  4.57 inches, 3.53 ounces (according to Pregnancy App)
Fruit/vegetable comparison (according to Baby Center):  Avocado
Gender:  Another Baby Boy!
Showing: oh yes!
Maternity clothes:  100% Maternity pants and 80/20 in tops and dresses 
Unglamorous body changes:  Just continuing to get bigger and lovely stretch marks on my tummy...two pieces will never be worn by this girl ever again!
Sleep:  Okay - I'm up several times a night to pee
Movement:  Small flutters every once in a while
Food cravings: Mexican food, lots of ice water, Hamburgers, Sherbet, unsweet iced tea
Anything making you queasy or sick: No
Wedding rings on or off: Engagement ring is on, but my stack of other two rings is too tight when worn together. 
Mood: Rather emotional
Best moment this week: Spending lots of time with Jack and Jason during the long three-day weekend even if much of it was spent stressing over storms!
Strange experiences: Can't think of anything
Milestones:  Made a few decisions about coffee bean's nursery.  It always feels good to get some things decided on.  I also bought a few (tiny) things for him.  Just because I'm having another boy doesn't mean I can't buy him things!  Shoot - half of Jack's closet is monogrammed so unless we plan on doing Jack #2, he will need some things to call his own. 
Looking forward to: Our next ultrasound to check on the babe the first part of June

Thoughts:  I so don't want to come off as ungrateful as I know so many women are struggling to conceive and would give anything to be pregnant.  I just haven't enjoyed this pregnancy as much since I'm so dang self-conscious about my body and extra weight I'm carrying.  I haven't been psyched to do pregnancy updates or take pregnancy pictures because I feel like I already look 30 weeks pregnant.  

I'm mostly just mad at myself for not working harder to lose the last 10 pounds I needed to lose from the first pregnancy, mad I'm not tall with a long torso, mad that I love food so much and mad that my work schedule and all of my commitments at home take away time I used on my first pregnancy to work out.  I know that if it's important enough, you will make time for it, however I always put my household and families needs first...and yes, I like to try and get 8 hours of sleep each night! 

I just keep telling myself that I'll have excellent "before" pictures to use for my amazing "after" pics I'm sure to get once Coffee Bean is born and I can get a program started.  Selfish rant over.

I'm so thrilled to be expecting, aside from my vanity worries, and can't wait to lock down a name and start making progress on the nursery and getting The Purifoy household ready!

This is probably the one and only time I'll post a comparison pic because they will start getting too depressing from here on out.  Read it and weep sister.  Oh to be pregnant with #1 Belize, tan, rested and {more than} 10 pounds lighter...and I want my long hair back.  #debbiedowner


  1. Oh my word you're stunning!!!!!! Just keep doing what you're doing mama, You're juggling way more this time around but you're doing an awesome job!

  2. I think you look great and beautiful as always! But I also totally understand worrying about the big belly. With #2 I seriously was panicking every time I looked in the mirror because my belly was growing SO much faster. I was constantly worried about what I would look like at 40 weeks. And I was always embarrassed to tell people when I was due because I already knew what their reaction would be. Now with #3 I feel like my tummy is growing even faster yet again. It is going to be sticking out so far by the time I get to the end...Oh well, at least we can share the crazy comments we get from people 😀

  3. Aw still so happy for you! I miss those preggo days :) such a great new blessing!!

  4. You look great! Keeping up with a toddler is workout enough. I don't think I did a single workout the entire pregnancy with Stella...I was always too exhausted. You just keep doing what you're doing and stay healthy! And hope y'all are surviving the crazy flooding, been thinking about y'all!
