How far along? 16 weeks and 0 days
Baby’s Size: 4-5 inches
Baby’s Weight: 3-3 1/2 ounces
Development: His eyes and ears are in position now. He's growing toenails and his legs are developing. His little heart is pumping 25 quarts of blood per day.
Weight gain/loss: I gained 2 1/2 pounds this week. Up 8 1/2 pounds overall.
Maternity clothes? I bought some great pairs of pants this week, and I'm able to wear some of them now. I've also worn a couple maternity tops. They are so roomy and comfortable!
Best moment this week? Shopping for little boy clothes!
Symptoms: Stuffy nose & congestion, sore & swollen boobs, increased sense of smell, dry & itchy skin but it's getting softer and smoother, short bursts of energy (I worked out 2 days in a row, but took naps after each workout session). I cry a little more easily now.
Food cravings/aversions: Nothing specific. But I DID buy pickles at the store yesterday, which I never do. I saw them and they looked good...hm, now I want a pickle. :)
What I'm looking forward to: Decorating the nursery. Most of the planning is done.
Milestones: It's a boy, and I definitely have a little bump now!
What my baby and I look like this week:
