Only 168 days left!
And we've grown from an orange to an....avacado?!
Don't ask. I don't know about where you're from but oranges around here are a lot bigger than a little avacado.
Tarzan's Guide says she is the size of a small stud finder.
Either way, she's bigger than she was last week!
She's also growing tiny bones in her ears so if she can't already soon she'll be able to hear us! We've been talking to her for a while now but I'm excited to think about her actually being able to hear us!
Taste buds are forming, and she's growing eyelashes, eyebrows, and more hair.
And I'm even more convinced that last week (and this week) I was feeling her move and kick a bit. Some days it was more noticeable than others but every single time I used the doppler for longer than a few seconds I could feel bubbles popping like crazy directly underneath the doppler. Not a sensation I've ever felt before and considering it would start when the doppler was turned on and stop once I turned it off I just know it was her, probably telling me to quit bothering her! So I'm back to only using it for a few seconds a day. But loving the fact that I can feel her! I'm not sure I felt her at all yesterday, afterall her little legs are incredibly tiny, but I'm pretty sure I've already felt her this morning!
And my weekly update:
How far along? 16 weeks
gain: Still unsure. But my appointment is in two days.
Maternity clothes? I'm still in regular pants though
I'm still loving my BeBands and I'm starting to wear a few maternity shirts, not
so much because I need them but because they really make me look like I've got a
bump...which I LOVE!
Sleep: Sleeping through the night and no naps needed!
Best moment this week: Feeling her tiny legs kick!
Food cravings: No real cravings.
Aversions are letting up though...still not a fan of ground beef. All meats I
used to love are still a bit weird to me but I can eat some steak and chicken. I
do eat a LOT more beans than ever before which I'm assuming is because I'm not
eating meat, so I guess that is a craving.
Anything making you queasy
or sick: Still gagging every.single.time I brush my teeth. But overall feeling fantastic. Heartburn in the evenings now, instead of all day. But this morning I feel like I've gone back in time to week 7 with the morning sickness.
Gender prediction: We're still
going with girl until the 25th when we know with more
Labor Signs: Geez, hope
Symptoms: Sore boobies, heartburn, occasional mild nausea
Belly Button in or
Wedding rings on or
Happy or Moody most of the time: So
Looking forward to: Every single day from here
