Can't believe we are on to week 16..baby is growing!
Today is: October 16, 2012
How far along: 16 weeks
Total weight gain: Still puking almost daily..so I am not really sure. I have my appointment tomorrow and we will find out!
Baby is the size of: An avocado...about 4.5-5" and 3.5 oz.
What's going on with the babe: Baby's patterning of his/her scalp has begun. Toenails are starting to grow. The heart is now pumping 25 quarts of blood per day. He or she can now listen to my voice which makes Momma so happy.
What's going on with the mama: It's nice to have some of my energy back, I definitely don't feel as fatigued as I did before. Thankfully I have been feeling a little better as well. Sadly I still need to take my Zofran daily and nights can sometimes be horrible but overall I can't complain. I've been having good days and I'm so thankful for that!
Baby is a: Boy or a girl. It will probably be a couple weeks before we find out!
Maternity clothing: Quite a few. Mostly bottoms as most of my shirts fit but I do have maternity shirts and they are often more comfortable.
Sleep: Vivid dreams quite often as well as the frequent trips to the bathroom. Some nights are better than others and I nap when I have a bad one!
Movement: Itty bitty flutters. Some days I feel a lot of movement and then I can go days with none at all. When the baby does move and I can feel it, its crazy..he or she is like a dancing queen in there.
Cravings/Aversions: My aversions still vary, some things sound great then I put it in my mouth and I can barely swallow. Anything thats left over is very hard for me to eat in less K heats it up for me. Smelling cold food almost always sends me to the bathroom! Otherwise cravings also vary, usually anything with salt in it!
- Morning sickness/vomiting. Still there..but I do get good days!
- Sensitivity to smell. Only certain foods!
- Metallic taste None!
- Acne. I wish it'd just go away already!!!!!
- Vivid dreams...Almost every other night!
- Headaches. Maybe once or twice a week!
- Heartburn. Also occasionally, usually at night.
- Emotional. I cry more than I care to admit. Although I feel like thats a little better since entering 2nd trimester!
So much happening!! Grow baby grow!
