16 Weeks?

My husband pointed out last night that I only have 169 days to go...I could have gone without that number for sure.

Exciting things are happening this week with the little one:

How your baby's growing:

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.

In other news: My ultrasound is scheduled for WEDNESDAY from 4-6 and we just might find out the gender of our dear one. Be on standby for that news!


  1. I am so excited for you! I miss the days when I was pregnant with my babies. It's magical.

  2. Congrats! I just entered into my 34th week on Sunday! Are you going to find out what you are having? If so, its right around the corner!
