Sixteen weeks! I am finally not sick! No morning sickness and no real world sickness! I haven’t been sick for a few weeks, knock on wood! I still do not have any cravings which kind of sucks. I want to want to eat all the food! My belly is growing every day. Bunny still insists this is a girl and we should name her Tinker bell or Star-e. She is sad when I tell her neither will be our baby’s name. Baby Sister hugs and kisses my belly, it is cute. She still flops around when she is nursing and is learning to stay away from my baby belly. Nursing is going well. Baby Sister is slowly nursing less and less. Only 2-3 times at night! She actually slept for 12 straight hours the other night! Baby Sister is 20 months old. I don’t plan on weaning her, she can stop when she’s ready. I tandem nursed Bunny and Baby Sister and will do the same with these babies. I have been good about blogging during this pregnancy but have not even started a pregnancy calendar or journal like I did with my other two pregnancies. I feel bad for this baby! It is true that you don’t do as much in the way of photos, scrapbooking and memory keeping for the subsequent babies!
My body is hurting. I overdid it with packing and moving furniture and hurt my hips more than normal. Chiropractic care really helps but doesn’t ease the pain 100%. Oh the joys of a third pregnancy and being older. It doesn’t help that I am chasing around my older kids all day! Little to no weight gain so far, which I am not super happy about. I am nursing and pregnant, mama needs her fat!
I am hopeful that cravings will start soon and I will want to eat everything in sight. It is weird for me not to want to eat. I am loving salads right now, but those are not super filling and I only like them when someone else makes them! I love Tuna fish sandwiches, they are a craving I have had with all three pregnancies but can only eat it once a week.
Cooking meat. This makes it hard to eat protein!
