Baby #2 - Weeks 16 through 18

I think doing these Baby #2 updates is working really well when I do them 3 weeks at a time!  I really can't seem to blog every week, so this will just be the way I'm going to do it!  
It's been a good month and a lot has happened - 
here's a peek at my bumps, and my weekly reports: 




How far along? 16 weeks
Baby Size: Baby is the size of an avocado.
Total weight gain/loss: I'm finally up a few pounds now that my nausea meds are working!
Maternity clothes? I'm embracing the maternity shorts and jeans!  Most tops and dresses are just my regular clothes.
Stretch marks? Nope.
Sleep: Sleeping great! Mostly on my side this week.
Best moment this week: Finding out the gender!
Miss Anything? Sushi and Jersey Mikes Subs.
Movement: Not yet.
Food cravings: Peanut butter and chocolate 
Anything making you queasy or sick: My meds are helping so much - thankful!
Have you started to show yet: Yep! There's a bump there.

Belly Button in or out? In.

You look so cute! How manys weeks are you now? Just wondering how far apart we are. I need to try those JS jeans. I got a pair of white skinny jeans from Target and even the XS swallowed me so that didn't work. How do the JS ones fit?
