16 Week Bump Date

How Far Along: 16 Weeks
 (You can check out my 16 week post from when I was pregnant with Jackson here.)

Size of Baby: (According to 16 weeks: Your baby is about the size of an avocado. Your baby now weighs 3 1/2 ounces and is about 4 1/2 inches long from head to bottom.

Total Weight Gain/Loss: I go to the doctor next Monday, so I'll have a better idea then what my weight gain has been so far. At my 12 week appointment I was up 4 lbs.

Maternity Clothes: Yes, all maternity pants and some maternity shirts.

Gender: A sweet baby girl!! (You can read about how we found out here.)

Movement: I've felt a few flutters here and there, but nothing consistent yet.

Food Cravings: I had a yummy snow man sugar cookie Saturday morning from Starbucks and ever since then, I've been wanting another one.

What I miss: My wedding rings fitting. They are already pretty tight so I haven't been wearing them.

Sleep: Other than getting up multiple times to use the bathroom, pretty good.

Symptoms: Having to use the restroom often and a sensitive gag reflex.

Best Moment this week: Doing a little shopping for baby girl, getting to take a nice long nap yesterday afternoon and dinner out with friends this past Friday night.

What I am looking forward to: Feeling the baby move more, planning the nursery and deciding on a name.

All the cute girly clothes and accessories must be so much fun!
When I was pregnant I could *not* stand the smell or taste of peanuts or peanut butter. It was one of the few things that triggered my gag reflex. And, wouldn't you know it, peanut butter sandwiches were the one thing Scott felt compelled to eat every.single.night.

Such a cute baby bump! I'm envious of how good you are at keeping up with the Bump Dates. I'm long overdue on another pregnancy post!
