Bumpdate: 16 weeks

Baby is the size of a turnip.
(this is just an estimate according to my pregnancy app)

How far along are you? 16 weeks 
Total weight gain: Not keeping track. Our scale is broken. 
Maternity Clothes? I bought another maternity dress at Savers this week. Note to self: check other thrift stores for maternity wear as well.
Stretch Marks? No.  
Sleep: Ugh. My sleep comfortability is inconsistent. 
Best moments: Realizing how grateful I am to feel like a normal person again instead of nauseous all the time. I love you, second trimester. 
Missing anything? SUSHI. Is it really that bad for pregnant women to eat raw fish? I think it's just an American thing, because sushi is considered good for pregnant women in Japan. The real concern is if you were to get sick from eating bad sushi, it would be bad news for mom and the baby. But I've never had spoiled sushi, ever. Oh, and you shouldn't eating sushi with high mercury content, like tuna. Any moms out there eat sushi during pregnancy? I'm just not too convinced that it's that bad for me to eat it. I've just been eating California rolls in the meantime. The struggle. 
Movement? No.... I wanna feel ya, baby! 
Food Cravings: Taco Bell. And sushi. 
Symptoms: I'm just kinda tired and hungry, but I was tired and hungry before pregnancy. My life. 
Belly Button in or Out? In. 
Happy or Moody? Pretty happy.
Looking Forward to: Finding out the gender! Hopefully next Tuesday. We are kind of hoping for a boy, but we'll obviously be happy with a girl too. 
In non-pregnancy related news: 
One of my favorite bands is reuniting after 6 six years apart! Copeland is releasing their 5th album this year. Just watch this and listen. Someone on the internet described this song as "running into an old friend" :) 

Also! Merriment's first album, Sway, is streaming on Pandora. My favorite tracks are Tremendous Love and Patterns. Make sure to give it a listen, especially if you're in need of some new tunes.
