16 Week Pregnancy Survey

How Far Along: 16 weeks

Size of babyGet 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. I also read that they can start hearing you so time to start talking to baby.
Total Weight Gain/Loss: I go to the doctor tomorrow so I'll let ya know, I'm still guessing 3-5 overall so far.

What I miss: Nothing this week

Sleep: I've been sleeping through the night more this week, David had a cold so not sure if its my body trying to ward it away. I hope I don't get it!

Symptoms: Slowly, but surely I am starting to feel normal again just hungry a lot more often. Does anyone have any good prenatal yoga videos they want to recommend? I want to start doing some of these at night.

Cravings: I signed up for a coupon for macaroni grill yesterday and now I want pasta milano (no mushrooms) if you've never had it, it's a must. Although they have taken away the bow tie pasta and put in penne instead (it affects the taste, believe me).

Best Moments this week: Getting my new bed set in! Here is a sneak peek. I also made dinner last night. I make lettuce wraps with ground chicken. It was quite tasty. I am going to try to make dinners again and go grocery shopping (I know, a bit ambitious, but I think I'm ready).
The bedding, lamp and curtains in the picture have to go, but you get the idea. We also aren't sure if we are keeping the box springs in there, it makes the bed really high, but taking it out we're not sure if it will be really low. We're going to play around this weekend. I also love the side tables, it's hard to see on this phone pic, because it makes it look yellow, but it looks good. Ya'll were right.
Mmm Lettuce Wraps
What we are looking forward to: Our Doctor appointment tomorrow! It is just to hear little one's heart beat, but it'll be a good reassurance to make sure everything is going well in there. I am also looking forward to the long weekend of redecorating, doing errands and seeing friends and family.
16 week photo. There is a bit of a bump forming. Sorry my pants are tight, I buttoned them and pulled them down and it looks like I am squeezing myself (which I prob. was, but just for the photo).
