Or is that really, really bad? Our little one is the size of an avocado now.
16 beautiful weeks.
Okay, so they've been pretty full of morning sickness & exhaustion. But I have a feeling that things are about to change. Weeks keep flying by & I keep losing track of how far along I am. I like that.
I'm also trying to enjoy pregnancy more. :) And I think it's about to get more fun! At least, I really hope so! I always imagined myself as a happy go-lucky pregnant lady. That I'd have easy pregnancies and enjoy the growing little one inside of me. .... Not so many puppies & roses in real life, unfortunately.
Everything I read says that baby is about to go through a substantial growth spurt. The growth pattern for its hair has already begun. Oh little one, I hope you don't have the cowlicks that I do. S/he is starting to grow toenails & it's heart is pumping about 25 quarts of blood a day! Is it me, or is that a lot for this little champ?
Although I haven't felt any flutters in my tummy yet from baby movement (trust me, I'm on the lookout for it!), I do feel pressure on certain areas at certain times. I'm assuming it's our little one moving against my organs in there & causing some discomfort. Guess I better get used to that! It's a little uncomfortable, but it is nice to know why it feels that way. :)
