Level 2 u/s, OB appt & 16 weeks!

Far Along: 16 weeks and can you say "I popped"? I look huge.

How Big is The Baby: An Avacado; about 5 ounces and I think about 6 or 6.5 inches long.

Total Weight Gain: When they weighed me this week I weighed the same as I did at 11 weeks when I started there.

Maternity Clothes: Be band with pre-preg jeans and maternity shirts.

Sleep: Not great but not horrible!


Movement: I thought that maybe I felt movement on wednesday but I havent felt that feeling since then so I am not sure.

Food Cravings: Still sweets, fruit and milk. Also rice krispies =)

What I Miss: my facewash that made my face not breakout like it is now.

What I'm looking forward to: Feeling Foster move and kick!!!

Milestones: Naming the baby: Possibly feeling movement

Symptoms: Acid reflux, burps, tiredness, breakouts, mood swings, headaches, dizziness, nausea.

This week we had the first portion of our level 2 ultrasound and everything looks good so far but we have to go back in three weeks to get the rest of the measurements (like the hearts valves etc). It was nice to see Foster in there moving around and stretching out. He is so cute, but Im partial ;) The next day we had a quick OB appointment and all was good. They measured my belly for the first time at 17cm and said I am measuring a little over a cm ahead. We got back there in 4 weeks.



  1. Great news! So exciting that you are having a boy!!!

  2. A pregnant belly looks so good on you!

  3. You have totally popped! So cute! Love the name too :) I'm catching up to you in belly size... 14 weeks with twins! Where did you go to find out the sex of the baby so early?

  4. An elective ultrasound place called "Ultrasona" here in Columbus. I am SO happy we did.
