16 weeks!!

Today marks 16 weeks!!!!! Here is an except from my Pregnancy Weekly email:

"How your baby's growing: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."

We are 15 days from our big boy/girl ultrasound!! I am so excited to see our baby! I got so spoiled with my first doctor and it's been WEEKS since I've seen the baby!! :)

And here's a shot of me at the park with the little lady on Saturday. I know, I know. It's not a good side shot, but considering I've been in my PJs since about noon today, that is all you are going to get!!
