Weekly Check-In: 16 weeks (4 MONTHS)!!!1


How far along: 
16 weeks
How big is baby: Avacado
Watch what you say... tiny bones forming in baby's ears mean the little one can now pick up your voice. Eyebrows, lashes and hair are starting to fill in, and taste buds are forming. And, if you're interested, an ultrasound might be able to determine gender.

Total weight gain:
+7.5 pounds 
Maternity clothes?
Belly button in or out?
Getting worse. Sciatica pain is really starting to make me toss and turn and get up throughout the night. I still wake up 2-3 times to go to the bathroom, so on top of that--I maybe get 4-5 hours of sleep; 1-1 1/2 hours at a time.
Best moment this week:
Finding out our anatomy scan is Dec. 16th!
Food cravings: 
Fruit. Oh my goodness I had the best salad ever the other day too. It was from my favorite restaurant Players. I could eat that every day for breakfast, lunch, and dinner if I lived close to there. Greek yummy. Ooops I had feta cheese haha...
Food aversions: 
Chocolate, onions, fried foods, meat
Sciatica (although it's getting better with the pelvic tilts my OB suggested), RLP, slight nausea with the food aversions I have, still have fatigue but it's getting better.
Yep! It's not every day, but I will get flutters (frogs jumping around) and one or two kicks every couple of days.
Thinking it's a girl, but trying not to get my hopes up!
What I'm looking forward to: 
Anatomy Scan by far. It's Dec. 16th at 2pm. But it'll be a secret until our family Christmas :-)... I'll be 18w2d
What I miss: 
Being able to walk without constant pain.
4 months down; 5 months to go; feeling small kicks, listening to it's wonderful heartbeat. Last night it was 152bpm
Next appointment: 
Anatomy Scan is Dec. 16th @2pm; Next Dr. appt is Dec. 19@12:20pm
