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.
