In the moment I didn't think I felt any different but looking back I really did.

Around that time my limbs started to feel really heavy, like moving became really difficult, and my belly wasn't even big! 

My iron was fine, etc. but it was just one of those weird pregnancy things.

I found out the gender at 16 weeks, instead of the usual 20 weeks, so we had a lot to look forward to.

I kept a pregnancy journal and wrote down what I was feeling each week.

I think that's a great idea for remembering that exciting time.

I was a very happy go lucky mom to be when I was pregnant (during my two pregnancies). I loved everything about being pregnant.

At 16 weeks I was just barely starting to show so I think I was feeling pretty self concious that people would just think I was getting fat not pregnant lol.  I also started to have some soreness in my joints when I went for long walks.  Other then that I didn't have many symptoms at that point.

 At 16 weeks, I was just starting to show (we first noticed at 15 weeks), so I started feeling more "motherly" because it was obvious something amazing was happening to me. I also felt her kick for the first time at 16 weeks. Which was a spectacular feeling!

I pretty much loved every second of my pregnancy once I got passed  the "morning sickness" at week 14, but the 2nd trimester was definitely the best. I was big enough to be that "cute" pregnant and still have most of my energy and movement available to me.

At 16 weeks I was just starting to show a little baby bump & was feeling self conscience that people would just think I was gaining weight. I had weird pregnancy symptoms. I didn't have any nausia or morning sickness but instead had terrible insomnia & nasal congestion. So at that point I was stuffy & not sleeping.
