16 Week Pregnancy Update

How far along? 16 weeks 1 day

Total weight gain/loss: Gained 1 lbs since the last update total of 6 :)

Maternity clothes? Nope, but I do wear a Bella Band

Stretch marks? Just the ones left over from the last two

Best moment this week? Well about two weeks ago I started feeling movement. That was cool.

Food Cravings? Cream of Wheat and Bread , Fried egg and bolonga sandwich.

Food Aversions? Cooking meat then having to eat it. :(

Best moment this week? I went to the dr today, got to hear the heartbeat which was 151 bpm, nothing better than a lil reassurance.

Movement: Yes started feeling it about 2 wks ago

Gender: Unknown

Labor Signs: None

Weekly Wisdom: Nothing this week, sorry :(

Milestones: Get 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. The patterning of his scalp has begun, though his locks aren't recognizable yet. He's even started growing toenails. And there's a lot happening inside as well. For example, his heart is now pumping about 25 quarts of blood each day, and this amount will continue to increase as your baby continues to develop.


  1. I'm still not eating a lot of meat. Good thing for protein bars!

  2. Glad things are going good. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.
