Pregnancy Update – Week 16

Pregnancy Update – Week 16

BIG ANNOUNCEMENT! This past Wednesday we found out we are having a baby girl!

Baby Girl

Her name is Allison Kay Larsen and we’re calling her Allie for short. I already feel so in love with her and can’t stop thinking about what she’s going to be like. I’m so happy to be 16 weeks and feeling this good. Four months down and five more to go!

Pregnancy Update – 16 Weeks

How far along? 16 weeks + 0 days

Due date? September 6, 2015

Baby’s size? She’s the size of a large avocado!


Workouts: Running 4x’s a week and walking for 50 minutes 3x’s a week. I’m training for the Soldier Field 10 Mile while coaching with CES so my long run this weekend was 6 miles. It’s crazy to think that 6 miles used to be my easy morning run and now 6 miles is a long run. That’s what happens when you have to take 6 months off from all exercise for IVF.

Maternity clothes? I bought my first maternity t-shirt from Target and I received my Stitch Fix order yesterday, but haven’t tried them on yet.

Stretch marks? No, still using a lot of coconut oil.

Sleep: 10-12 hours. I could sleep for days and I love it! I know this time won’t last so I’m enjoying it while I can.

Best moment this week: Finding out my baby is a girl and naming her Allison.

Miss Anything? Running fast and fitting into my clothes.

Movement: No, but really hoping to feel something soon!

Food cravings: It’s funny that my cravings are changing every week. This week I’m craving summer rolls, lasagna, PB&J, and avocados.

Anything making you queasy or sick: Strong perfume and strong food smells. I especially hate leaving a restaurant with my clothes smelling like food. yuck!

Gender: Girl!

Name: Allison Kay Larsen

Symptoms: My stomach is starting to pop and it’s getting hard. Also, still getting headaches usually at the end of the day.

Belly Button in or out? In.

Wedding rings on or off? On

Happy or Moody: Happy all day and a little moody when I’m exhausted at night. I feel like I have tons of energy during the day and then all of a sudden I crash around 7-8PM.

Looking forward to: Running and my friend’s baby shower next weekend.

    Yuck, strong perfume (and even strong deodorant) always made me feel sick while pregnant too. Darn strong sense of smell!

    So glad you’ve been feeling better lately!
