Week 16

Week 16

How far along: 16 Weeks

How big is baby: From The Bump - The size of an avocado which is funny because I've been craving them! Now, she's about 4.6 inches long and weighs about 3.5 ounces, and she's big enough that your doctor may be able to hear her heartbeat. She's listening to your voice, thanks to tiny bones forming in her ears. She's growing hair, lashes and eyebrows. And she's forming taste buds.

Weight gain/loss: Up 3.5 pounds.

Stretch marks: None side from the thighs.

Sleep: Okay-ish. I'm waking up more to pee now.

Diet/Cravings/Aversions: I finally started cooking again this week. In fact I made eggs twice. The only thing that almost got me was some raw seasoned chicken. I grilled it outside so I think that's the only reason I could eat it. Loving avocado and sweets. Oh boy do I have a sweet tooth now!

Movement: I really can't tell. Sometimes I think I do, but then I think it's actually just my own heartbeat.

What I'm loving: The looks. Now that I've popped I get a questioning look from everyone. Women usually guess, men I think are not sure and are afraid to say anything in case it's just that I got fat. I told my boss I want to get a button that says Yes, I'm pregnant. Please don't touch.

Symptoms: I had a little let up on having to pee every five seconds and now it seems that's back. Can walking to the bathroom count as a work out?

My other problem is round ligament pain. HOLY CRAP DOES IT HURT. I mainly get it if I roll over too fast or get up too quickly. I swear it's like someone just stabbed me right in the ute. OW.

What I'm looking forward to: Finding out the sex at the end of the month. ALMOST THERE!


  1. I need that button too. With 2nd graders they all want to touch.

  2. Looks like you're putting on a little bit of weight there :-p

    (sorry, token guy response)

    Avocados are wondrous. Keep us updated :-)

  3. Saw a t-shirt that said "if you didn't put it there, don't touch it" and thought of you! :)
