16 Weeks, Take 2

This is *obviously* from this past Saturday. I've got to get better at taking belly pictures. I always remember once I get in bed at night. 

Baby Milestones: Baby is about 4.6 in long, and 3.4 oz. Baby's reflexes are developing, and improved muscle control allows it to grasp things with its hands. 

Weight Gain: Lost another 6 lbs between visit 2 & 3. This past week has been a grand improvement on the nausea trend, so hopefully I'll start gaining soon. 

Clothes: I'm still wearing my clothes (and some that haven't fit in a while) but I throw in maternity clothes occasionally for fun. 

Gender: We don't know yet but counting the days! Our official scan is the day before Thanksgiving! 

Movement: I can definitely feel the baby moving around now. We snuck in an ultrasound while I was on the L&D floor yesterday and it was so fun to watch he or she move around & play inside my belly. So surreal! 

Sleep: I'm sleeping pretty well, but getting up to go to the bathroom a lot more frequently now. 

What I miss: Knowing what I can eat & what tastes good. 

Cravings: Watermelon, this past week. 

Symptoms: Both my exhaustion and nausea are waning *knock on wood,* so hopefully I'll be mostly symptom free for a while. 

Best Moment this week: Getting to check out that sweet baby on ultrasound yesterday. We were trying to check out the "flavor" but baby was cooperating, but we did get to watch he or she kick and squirm for a good 45 minutes which was so much fun!

Is this not the sweetest thing ever? PS She is not sucking her thumb, but it sure does look like it.
