(Tuesday June 17 , 2014 to Monday June 23, 2014)
24 to go.. 🙂
Baby is :
Baby is the size of an AVOCADO
During week 16, Axel’s heart is pumping about 25 quarts of blood each day. In the next few weeks she will double in size.
The patterning of her scalp has begun, though his locks aren’t recognizable yet. She’s even started growing toenails.
How I’m Feeling:
I’m feeling awesome! At my last appointment (16 weeks+6 days) the doctor told me (he did an ultrasound like at every visit) that he was like 99% sure it was really a girl (at 12 weeks they told me girl too) so I guess Axel is really a girl, hehe. I was so excited that I bought her tiny outfits, nothing much, but just few so in case it’s finally a boy I will not cry because I spent money like crazy, hahaha! (they were all in super sale.. 6$ for 3 carter’s pj is not much, haha)
How I’m Changing:
My baby bump is still growing, I stopped having acne like a teenager and I had the worst knee pain ever!! Last time I had that I was like 39 weeks pregnant.. go figure why I was in pain like that, I didn’t gained any weight yet.. thanks life it’s over now, yeah!
What I’m Eating/What I’m NOT Eating:
I’m eating normally, but not much, I don’t have a very big appetite. Not much snacking too. i still eat a lot of fruits and veggies, drinking plenty of water, drinking smoothies.. like the usual me.
Total Weight Gained:
Nothing yet.. on the end of week 16, on the scale it was -3.5 pounds. (And even if I have a baby bump! that only means one thing.. i’m gaining on my belly but loosing elsewhere on my body..)
I do some weight lifting , but nothing too extreme and some elliptical. I feel great and I don’t gain tons of weight like with my daughter.
I also walk outside and do outdoor house work.
Prenatal Care :
My next appointment is July 21, so at 20 weeks + 6 days, it will be my 20 weeks ultrasound. The next day (July 22) I have my appointment with my doctor too. After the 20 weeks ultrasound we will be very sure of the gender, hehe.
Still taking my vitamins and calcium supplements.
I sleep well, hehe!
See you next week!
