Weekly e-mail update: Get ready for a growth spurt. In the next few weeks, your baby will double his weight and add inches to his length. 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. The patterning of his scalp has begun, though his locks aren't recognizable yet. He's even started growing toenails.
How far along?: 16 weeks
How big is baby?: The size of an avocado, 4 1/2 inches long (head to rump) and 3 1/2 ounces.
Weight gain?: I have gained 4 pounds since the beginning of the pregnancy. It is true what they say about second pregnancies- you do show a lot sooner!
Stretch marks?: Not yet.
Maternity clothes?: Still squeezing into my normal clothes, but my pants are starting to feel tight.
Food cravings?: For some reason I am in love with grapefruit.
Sleep?: Haven't had any in days- suffering from a bad cold.
Movement?: Nothing yet- hoping to feel the little one soon!
Gender?: Still deciding whether to find out or not.
Exercise?: Nada right now- maybe once I start getting some energy back.
What's been going on?: This past week I have been hit hard with a nasty cold. Lack of sleep is starting to get to me! Pin It
