16 weeks!

What’s going on this week:

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.


My Update:

Due Date: November 4, 2011 – 168 days to go!

Weight Gain: +4 lbs (from pre-preg weight).  It keeps going up and down.

Symptoms:  Still peeing a lot..I’m anticipating that symptom should calm down soon as the baby moves higher off my bladder.

Cravings/Aversions: Nothing new!

Sleep: Good.

I am loving: Food.

I miss:  Not much…

Movement: Not yet.  But we’re closing in on when I should start to feel something…in the next few weeks!

It’s a: I *still* think it’s a boy.  About 2 weeks till we can find out (if the baby cooperates.)

Exercise: I went to the prenatal yoga class this week and really liked it.  I’ll be going back for sure.

Diet: Still OK.  We’ve eaten out a lot lately.  Not that there’s anything wrong with that.  🙂

Looking forward to: The anatomy scan ultrasound in a couple weeks.  And going to Portland to see Lisa, Josh and Ada!  I can’t wait to get my mitts on her!
