Baby K: week 16

Week: 16
Baby K: Baby K is the size of an avocado at about 5 inches from bottom to head and weighing about 3.5 ounces.  The baby is starting a massive growth spurt and will double in size in the next weeks.  Baby K can now hear our voices and even though the eyelids are fused shut can see light.  The baby now has finger and toenails and can suck his/her thumb.
Symptoms:  Still feeling the cramping, stretching and pains that come with the shifting and growing belly. 
Cravings: None
Aversions:  None.
Bump: It's arrived.  I officially have a real bump that isn't going anywhere and I judge that by the fact that I no longer fit in my jeans - even with a belly band.  Didn't stop me from wearing them for these pictures though.  They are completely unzipped and only suitable for stationary positions; any movement is not safe.  This weekend my mom took me on my first maternity shopping spree and spoiled me with some cute work outfits and a fun summer dress.  We weren't able to find a replacement pair of jeans though - the search will continue.
Looking forward to:  Feeling the baby's first movements which should be in the next few weeks!
Missing the most: Nothing at the moment.
