Week 16

Week 16!  The weather is freezing and they are calling for snow this week, after the ice storm last week, which is no fun.  Hopefully the storm isn't too bad.  I hate driving in the snow.  The new job is going well so far.  There is a LOT to learn but I like that challenge.  So that's what's happening on the mundane front.  What is going on with the pregnancy this week?  

For baby
Over the next few weeks the baby is supposed to double in weight and grow longer.  Right now baby is about the size of an avocado, or about 4.5 inches long.  The head is held more upright, ears are moved up from the neck, and the eyes are moved around onto the front of his face.  The eyes are still fused closed, but they can now also detect light, so that's exciting.  Baby has started growing toenails and the heart is pumping about 25 quarts of blood each day.

For momma:

So, what's new in my world?  Overall, things are going well.  I'm dealing with some small breakouts, which are super lame, but otherwise nothing exciting is going on.  I want to find some pregnancy safe facial cleansers to see if that helps.  I've also started looking at pregnancy announcement ideas so that in the nearish future we can make a public post.  How exciting!
