Oh how I adore guacamole!

How far along? 16 weeks

Due Date: August 2, 2011

Total weight gain/loss: 3 pounds

Maternity clothes? About 1/2 maternity clothes and 1/2 regular clothes.  All jeans are maternity now (thanks to my sweet friend, Camille, who is letting me borrow 2 pairs of her jeans from her pregnancy).  I wore my first maternity shirt yesterday and it was nice not to worry about having to pull it down constantly.  At home I'm still wearing regular comfy pants and shirts.

Stretch Marks? Nothing yet....hope it stays this way.

Sleep: A little better this week.  

Best moment this week: Spending the day with my sister yesterday.  We went to her doctor's appointment and she got to hear the heartbeat for the first time.  Then we went to Babies R Us and it was nice to get to look at everything and pick up carseats and play with strollers with someone who has "been there, done that."  We had a fabulous (and way too filling) sushi lunch at one of our favorite spots in Indy and did a little more shopping at the mall. 

Movement: Not yet....hopefully in the next 2-4 weeks.

Food cravings: Mostly savory carbs and guacamole and chips.

Food aversions: CHICKEN!
Gender: Still unknown, but hopefully that will change in less than 3 weeks.  (I'm still thinking GIRL.)

Labor Signs: Nada

Belly Button in or out? Innie

What I miss: The warm weather and being able to go for a walk around the neighborhood with the dog.  (Did this have to be pregnancy related?)

What I am looking forward to: Our big ultrasound and praying that we get good news that everything is perfect with our growing little one.
Milestones: 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.
I feel like I look (and feel) so much bigger than what these pictures show.  I kept making Matt take multiple pictures because I kept saying they weren't showing my "bump" right.  Matt says it's just not there that much, but I beg to differ and so do my pants!
