16 weeks

Well, my belly has popped! I officially look pregnant! I've gained 7 pounds so far and it's all between my shoulders and knees! I'm serious, it's not just the belly weight. It's my arm pits, my boobs, my belly, my butt, and my thighs! Which are all obviously very attractive places to gain weight. ;) Ahh the sacrifices we make for our children! I wouldn't have it any other way!
I don't feel baby Fergus everyday yet, but I do feel him/her once every couple of days. I can't wait until it is more consistent! I love when you feel the baby everyday! Well, I love it until the end when they are bruising ribs and knocking the wind out of you. (maybe that was just my son.....man was he a mover and a shaker in the belly! Still is!)
I am always hungry! I have started cutting my meal sizes in half because I have found that 2 hours after breakfast, I want breakfast again! I'm eating like 4-5 small meals a day! It's nuts!
I crave 2 things right now. Salads and milk shakes! I'm not talking boring salads, I mean the works! Chopped salads, taco salads, chicken salads, Greek salads, all of the good ones! I eat that once a day for sure. And I let myself have a milk shake every week! As you can see my son is loving the milk shake obsession too. And if we're being honest, my husband is not turning them down either!
