16 weeks!

How far along? 16 weeks
Baby’s size? About the size of an avocado...not sure how an avocado is bigger than an apple (apparently they were the size of apples at 15 weeks), but whatev :)  At our 15 week appt. the babies weighed 4 oz., so I'm guessing now they are about 5 oz. or so each.
Total Weight Gain: 8 pounds
Stretch marks? I just noticed some slight ones on my back around my hips---not sure if this is from pregnancy or not.  Probably.  But I am lubing up and trying to put lots of oil and lotion on my belly, hips and thighs so that I don't get too many stretch marks.  
Sleep:  It's been pretty good lately...despite the crazy leg cramps I get often at night---major ouch.  And still adjusting to not sleeping on my back.  
Best moment this week: Having a stranger ask me at the gym how far along I was.  This was the first stranger to ask!  I was wondering when this would happen.  I guess my belly is really popping :)
Miss Anything?  Not this week, I absolutely love being pregnant!!!!!!!
Movement: Not yet!!!
Food cravings: Really nothing big this week.
Anything making you queasy or sick: Nope!  Although I do have a cold I'm trying to get rid of...yuck, go away, please!!!!
Gender: We know and we've told family, but not telling the rest of the world until after our next appointment in two weeks.  I know that was mean and a tease, but eeekkkkkk all I can say is we are SUPER excited :) :) :) :)
Labor Signs: Thank goodness, NO.
Symptoms: Growing belly if that's a symptom.  Slightly bloody nose often in the morning, leg cramps in the middle of the night, having to pee a lot...that's about it.
Belly Button in or out? Right now it's flesh with my skin---craziest thing ever.  It's going to become an outty any week now---SO WEIRD.  
Wedding rings on or off? On!
Happy or moody most of the time: Happy!!!!  Although these pregnancy hormones do make me tear up and cry much more than I'd ever expect.  But I have to say I've been so happy throughout this pregnancy.  
Looking forward to: Our next appointment in a couple weeks when we get to see our sweet babies through an never gets old.  We are so in love.
