16 Week Survey-Baby O #3

How far along? 16 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: Hovering around 159. Eeeeeeek! Oh well though!
How big is baby?  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.- Baby Center
Maternity clothes?  Yes, just some capris and shorts. They are way more comfortable because it was starting to hurt when I bent over wearing my regular jeans. Also have worn a couple new summer dresses I got from Old Navy and I LOVE them!
Sleep: Still pretty good, minus the kids waking up at 6:30 :P
Best moment this week: Going to the splash pad, playdate at Marci's, having my 16 week appt. and hearing the baby's heartbeat, hanging out with Sarah and doing her hair, our family fun day in Saugatuck! We went to the brewery there, the beach, and walked around and got gelato. We were all exhausted that night! Church, and then hanging out with Kerri, having mojitos (her and Chris) and doing nails.
Movement: Yes, occasionally!
Food cravings:   Cold drinks, mexican food, ice cream, fruit
Food aversions:  Sour cream still tastes really weird to me. Coffee has been upsetting my stomach (booooo!!) but a lot of food has.
Gender: Surprise!
Names: I have some in my head! We need to talk about it still and have a lot of time.
Labor Signs: Nothing thank goodness!  
Symptoms:  Sore breasts, I get tired easily 
Belly Button in or out? In
Wedding rings on or off?  Still on
Stretchmarks? Yes, from before :)
How are you feeling?  Energetic mostly, but tired by the end of the day.
What I am looking forward to: We have a lot going on this week!  Tomorrow we are visiting the Critter Barn and then tomorrow night I pick my friend Lauren up from the train station.  Wednesday Nora has her 15 month peds appt, Thursday we are going to visit my friend Grandma Nancy, and Friday I get to go dress shopping with Lyn! Chris's parents are coming here for the day to spend some time with the kids.  
What I miss:  Drinking and working out.  
Weekly Wisdom:
Get rest when you can!
Milestones: Can't believe I'm a month away from being half way done!
Pregnancy Moments with Chris and others: I've gotten a lot of compliments lately that pregnancy looks good on me, that I'm a beautiful pregnant person etc. People are very sweet and flattering. Definitely makes this momma feel good since this is #3!
