Sixteen Weeks – Size of an Avocado 

I switched up my blog schedule a bit this week to show my pregnancy reveal photos on our wedding anniversary Monday, the day I usually do my pregnancy week synopsis. Our baby this week is the size of an avocado and many big changes are taking place.

For the size comparison, I put ghe avacado up to the Pandora like bracelet Matt gave me as part of his first anniversary gift to me. It turns out the avacado and thus the baby is a little bit less than the length of the charms on the bracelet.

The book Pegnancy Day by Day shows the baby position down by my hip bones. This makes sense as I’ve had some minor back cramps in that area.

Our baby is busily growing toe nails this week. Additionally s/he is developing more in leg structures and has his or her head sitting more erect on the body.

This example ultrasound shows what baby would appear like. Dr. G suggested he might only do a heart reading the next visit on Friday and not an ultrasound, so I probably will not have new pictures to share.

In the next few weeks our baby will grow by several inches and double in weight.
