16 weeks


--I feel like my belly is growing at lightning speed!  One friend even told me that she could tell a difference between last week when she saw me and this week.  It’s crazy how fast it’s popped out there!

Pregnancy Highlights:

How far along: 16 weeks

Size of baby: 4.6 inches.. size of an avocado

Maternity clothes: I’m definitely making my way into maternity clothes now.  Pretty much all pants are maternity or stretchy waist bands.  Shirts are still a good mix.  However, some shirts are getting too short!

Gender: Anatomy Scan set for May 5th.  I cannot wait!!!

Movement:  Something felt a little funny in there yesterday.. like a little flutter in my lower left abdomen.  I’m thinking it may have been baby, but I’m just not sure!  I haven’t felt it again since then.

Sleep: sleeping pretty good, but waking up before my alarm most mornings.

What I miss:  I haven’t really missed anything this week. I’m really starting to enjoy pregnancy.

Cravings: snow cones!  I’ve only had one because there isn’t a place super close to us that sells them.. but that one was delicious and left me wanting more!

Aversions:  I cannot bring myself to cook raw chicken!  Also, the thought of pot roast has had me gagging.

Symptoms: Just the same stinkin’ headaches almost every single day.

Best moment this week: Doctor’s appointment.. getting to hear the heartbeat and sneak another peek at baby.  This time he/she was rolled up into a little ball and not moving alot.  Maybe it was sleepy time?
