Baby Pegg Update: 16 Weeks

It’s time for another edition of “I’m not pregnant, but my best friend is, so let me tell you about her!” Marcie had an appointment this past week and everything looked great! They also were able to schedule the BIG appointment, which will be May 25th…totally counting down the days to knowing if I can start buying pink or blue (I’m still totally thinking team blue!). I’m also getting totally excited about helping throw her a baby shower. I got a few great ideas this week that I’ve got to share with her mom! On to the update:

The 16 Week Update
(Click here for the 12 week post for comparison)
How Far Along: 16 weeks and 4 days
Total Weight Gain/Loss:10 pounds
Maternity Clothes: All maternity pants (thank God for those elastic waistbands!), a belly band with some clothes, mostly maternity shirts now
Best Moment thus far: hearing the heartbeat on 4/27 (steady in the 150’s) and making the appointment for our 20w ultrasound!

Gender: we will find out on May 25th!

Movement: possible flutter on Easter Sunday. Not sure though, because I don’t know what to expect 🙂

Food Craving: still sour candy and pickles, juice, milk, and random fruit

What I miss: my old clothes lol

Sleep: Still wake up a lot to go to the bathroom, but beginning to get used to the side sleeping

What I am looking forward to: Finding out what baby is so I can go shopping!

Belly Button: In

Symptoms: still some lower back pain, twinges of pain in lower abdomen at random times

{Look at baby Pegg grow!}
The Baby Center 16 week stats: Time for a growth spurt! The baby will double his weight and add inches in length over the next few weeks. All limbs of the baby are now more developed and the hair pattern & toenails are beginning to form! The heart is also now pumping about 25 quarts of blood each day. From crown to rump the baby is about 4 1/2 inches long and about 3 1/2 ounces (about the size of an avocado).
