How Far Along: 16 weeks
Size of baby: According to babycenter.com the baby is about the size of an avocado.
Get ready for a growth spurt. In the next few weeks, your baby will double his weight and add inches to his length. Right now, he's about the size of an avocado: 4 1/2 inches long (head to rump) and 3 1/2 ounces. His legs are much more developed, his head is more erect than it has been, and his eyes have moved closer to the front of his head. His ears are close to their final position, too. The patterning of his scalp has begun, though his locks aren't recognizable yet. He's even started growing toenails. And there's a lot happening inside as well. For example, his heart is now pumping about 25 quarts of blood each day, and this amount will continue to increase as your baby continues to develop.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: +3 pounds...the weight is finally starting to stay on.
Maternity Clothes: still no maternity clothes, trying to put those off as long as possible. I think I'll need some new bras soon though.
Gender: don't know...still thinking girl.
Movement: I think I may actually be feeling something! The last few days I've felt some gurgling/bubbly type of feeling that isn't a typical stomach feeling.
What I miss: nothing.
Sleep: Okay, not great.
Symptoms: I've felt pretty good this week. Still some headaches but nothing too bad.
Cravings: String Cheese and Orange Juice (not at the same time)
Best Moment this week: Feeling what I think is the baby and not just gas!
What I am looking forward to: Going shopping in my friend's storage unit, she has lots of baby stuff she said I could borrow. Score!
