16 weeks!

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.
How Far Along: 16 weeks
Total Weight Gained/Loss: gain 3.6 lbs overall (+ .2 lbs this week)
Maternity Clothes: one pair of maternity jeans and thinking that even with the bella band clothes are starting to get too snug now.
Best Moment of the Week: getting a pregnancy pillow that helps me sleep:)
Movement: really think I felt the baby but not sure, it was right below my waist or maybe Im just feeling things
Food Craving: about anything..haha
Food aversions: nothing its wonderful
Morning sickness: none
Gender: not yet, we will find out Dec. 21 I cant wait!
Labor Signs: hopefully not for a long time
Belly Button: in
What I miss: sleeping on my stomach
What I'm looking forward to: finding out if its a boy or girl on Dec. 21-9 more days I cant wait! Last day of school for this year is Friday also an exciting thing
Weekly Wisdom:
But the Lord is faithful. He will establish you and guard you against the evil one. 2 Thessalonians 3:3
Milestones: oh has my belly grown, Ill take a belly pic and post it soon:)

Can't wait to see the belly pictures either!

I remember the first few times I felt Cooper move around....I was like "what was that...???". All the books say women mistake gas for the baby moving---but it feels nothing like gas. More like butterflies in my tummy---at least that's what I thought.

Our last day of school is a Wednesday....much less exciting than a Friday.

Wow! You're coming along so fast. Before you know it, it will fly by even faster. I got my first movement at 16 weeks so you probably did feel something. And what a great Christmas gift-finding out the gender right before :)
