How Will I Feel at 16 Weeks Pregnant?

If you’re 16 weeks pregnant the chances are that you may be in a funny phase of finally feeling more like yourself, now that the first trimester is over and hopefully morning sickness has gone too. But you may not be showing very much and it can feel like you’re just waiting for your belly to pop so that everyone knows you’re expecting without you having to tell them or feel self conscious about your thickening waist. It’s an exciting time though because your baby’s gender will be detectable via a scan from as early as 17 weeks so if you were to get a private gender scan ahead of your 20 week scan you could find out early whether you’re having a boy or a girl. Are you tempted?
