16 Weeks!

How far along? 16 Weeks
Baby Size: an Avocado.  Apparently the baby is about 4.5 inches long and 3.5 ounces.  

Total weight gain: As of Friday at the doctor, 6 lbs.    

Maternity clothes? Oh yeah.  I tried on a regular shirt the other day and it was just too tight around the boobs and stomach.  

Stretch marks? Not yet

Sleep: Better now that I have my new boppy pillow. 

Best moment this week: hearing the baby's heart beat again during my doctor's appointment.  

Miss Anything? not really

Movement: none yet

Food cravings: Recently I've been craving Pizza Hut Pizza.  

Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing new.

Gender Predictions: I feel like I change my mind every day.  

Labor Signs: Nope

Symptoms: Thursday my right ankle and foot started swelling... the first time I've ever had cankles!  I thought it seemed early, but the doctor said it was normal especially in the Summer.  Now I just elevate my feet when I get home from work.  

Belly Button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? on
Mood: Happy, but I get nervous that every symptom means something is wrong (i.e. thinking my swollen foot was a blood clot or meant I had high blood pressure)

Looking forward to: I think for the next five weeks I will be looking forward to finding out the gender.  Partly because I really want to be able to imagine the little person we are going to meet in November and also because once we know the gender I can start choosing things for the registry.  I am also looking forward to feeling the baby move!
