16 weeks!

How far along? 16 weeks today
How big is baby? About 4 1/2 inches and 3 1/2 ounces...about the size of an avocado (and up 3 ounces in a month--pretty amazing!)

Total weight gain/loss? Not sure scale is definitely going up a little. I will find out Monday at my next appointment I guess.
Maternity clothes? Still stretch pants or maternity pants, occasionally a maternity shirt but mostly still regular (though getting a bit tight)
Stretch marks? No new ones
Sleep? I require less naps now but still sleep a good 12 hours every night, interrupted by 2-3 trips to the bathroom.
Best moment last week? Just seeing the bump grow more and more
Movement? Not yet
Food cravings? Nachos, bean dip, cookie dough, apples, oranges, beef stew, skittles, sweetarts, starburst...I know, so healthy (but I don't eat much of anything so at least it's in moderation)
Food aversions? It varies daily. I never know what is going to make my stomach turn until it is mentioned
Gender? Ugh! Not yet...probably have to wait another month to find out! The sono tech tried to look at 13 1/2 weeks but baby was sitting cross-legged!
Labor signs? No
Pregnancy symptoms? Well, morning sickness reared it's ugly head at 12 1/2 weeks and it was pretty rough for a while. Seems to be lightening up though...I am on day 2 of not getting sick. Other than that, just extreme moments of hunger, getting worn out easily, and moodiness
Belly button in/out? In
What I miss: Energy, motivation
What I am looking forward to: My appointment next week! Can't wait to hear the heartbeat sono this time though
Milestones: Hitting the 2nd trimester, other people noticing the bump
Bump picture: No bump picture this time. We took one at 14 weeks but I swear I just looked fat, even though in person it looks like a bump. Ugh. Bump pics will just have to wait until it is way obvious.
