I am 16 weeks today! The baby is about the size of an avocado, and weighs about 2.75 ounces and is approximately 4.5 inches long!
I don’t have a whole lot to report this week since it’s still too early to really feel the baby and I don’t have another appointment for two more weeks. The belly seems to be growing more and more now though which is exciting!
I have to admit, I caved in last week and scheduled an appointment for a “gender reveal” elective ultrasound at this place that does ultrasounds exclusively. It was scheduled for tomorrow, but then we ended up canceling. We’re just dying to know the gender, but with our past complications, I decided NOT to do anything baby related that does not involve my doctor, and this place does not have doctors. We will just have to wait another four weeks. 🙂 We’re planning on having a gender reveal party too and can’t wait.
I don’t know whether I’ve mentioned names yet, but we do have a girl name already picked out, so if the baby is a girl, we are all set. It’s a name that I read in a book and fell in love with about eight years ago that has always stuck with me. As for boy names though, we’re having a tough time compromising! I love one name, Jerry loves another… this is not good. 😛
I’ve had a horrendous migraine on and off since last Monday so that’s my main “symptom” at the moment. It’s preventing me from being as productive as I’d like, though our bathroom makeover is just about complete, thanks to a lot of help from my parents. Our bathroom no longer looks like it’s stuck in the 70s! I’ll do a full post on this soon once we finish a few other minor details in there.
My grandparents are also here from Florida this week so we’ve been able to spend some much needed time with them. I also showed my grandma some baby items I’d like her to knit so I’m excited to see what she comes up with!
That’s all I’ve got this week! Any guesses on baby’s gender?! I’ve had a gut feeling on the gender since I’ve been about five weeks pregnant! Anyone else ever have a gut feeling, and was it wrong or was it right?
