16 Weeks

In the next few weeks, our baby will double it's weight and add inches to it's length. Right now, it's about the size of an avocado: 4 1/2 inches long (last week it was an apple and 4 1/2 inches I guess it is just elongating this week) and 3 1/2 ounces. It's legs are much more developed, it's head is more erect than it has been, and it's eyes have moved closer to the front of his head. It's ears are close to their final position, too. The patterning of it's scalp has begun, though it's locks aren't recognizable yet. It has even started growing toenails. And there's a lot happening inside as well. For example, it's heart is now pumping about 25 quarts of blood each day, and this amount will continue to increase as your baby continues to develop.

Third Doctors appointment tomorrow. Not really sure what about but I'll let you know how it goes tomorrow!

One month until we find out what we are having! My guess is that it is a girl...who knows though! What do you think?

Thanks for reading!
