16 Weeks!

I can't believe how time is flying. We've hit four months. In a short 5/6 months we get to meet our little Jelly Bean!

How far along? 16 weeks

Total weight gain/loss: Loss of 3lbs (gained back one of the 4 lost)

Baby's Fruit Size: Avocado

Sleep: Sleeping pretty well, just waking up to pee :)

Best moment this week: Finding out if our Jelly Bean is going to be a boy or girl!  

Miss Anything? A turkey sandwich.

Movement: I think I'm feeling little flutter, but I can't quite make it out yet.

Food cravings/aversions: Not so much this week.

Symptoms: I'm feeling great, really excited! A lot of heartburn, but it's not too bad.

Mood: Content :) but anxious. I'm just realizing all the things I don't know about being a parent. But I'm trying to do lots of research and I'm sure I will learn a lot along the way.

Sex Prediction: Well we know now so I won't make a prediction. But the announcement on the blog coming very soon. Just need to announce to friends and family first!  

Looking forward to: Announcing the sex to family and friends. I think a lot of people will be surprised!

By week 16, your baby-to-be's body is doing more to support itself. Her kidneys function and produce urine that then passes through the umbilical cord. Within her stomach, bile is secreted, although she relies on you for all of her nutrients. Her appearance changes as her scalp hair grows and may even have color. Her developing facial muscles make it possible for her to open and close her mouth, maybe even give you a smile or two.
This week, your little one is around 4.5 inches long (crown to rump) and weighs in around 3 ounces. Baby is about the size of an avocado.
