16 week chalkboard pregnancy tracker

Baby Bertoldi is 4 Months!
How far along? 16 wks (4 months!)
Total weight gain: 5 pounds
Maternity clothes? none yet, sweater dresses are the best right now.
Stretch marks? no
Sleep: 8-9 pm I'm totally knocked out on the couch, sleeping through the night still.
Best moment this week: 4 month appointment, Baby B's heartbeat was in the 140's, the doctor said he/she was wiggling around, that could be heard on the doppler! I think i'm feeling movement but I'm still a bit unsure.
Miss Anything? normal gym workouts (everything is very modified now) and a lead up time for hunger. zero to sixty in no time at all...full on hunger rage mode in effect...oh yeah and seasonal beers (sigh)
Movement: little popcorn popper
Food cravings: sauces have been the most noticeable (dipping sauces), other occurrences have been pancakes, vinegar, cereal, fruits (in the beginning, not so much anymore)
Anything making you queasy or sick: I still have my morning moments about once a week and the onset of dizziness has begun, not sure what that is about but it's like being motion sick while sitting at my desk...
Gender: no clue but I'm being persuaded Baby B. is a boy
Labor Signs: goodness no.
Symptoms: mild headaches, pretty much since 10+ weeks, hormones I presume are the cause, never had headaches before.
Belly Button in/out?  In
Wedding rings on/off? On
Happy/Moody most of the time: happy with my moments, poor Aaron.
Looking forward to: finding out Baby B's gender on December 23rd, just in time for Christmas!!
