Baby Update: Week 16

Our appointment went great yesterday! We hadn't gained any weight but maybe 1/2 a pound, but the PA said not to worry. She said just to keep eating when I'm hungry. It will come. She said not to worry either about barely showing... she said not to expect it for another 5-6 weeks! But, contrary to her opinion, some of my pants are a little tighter even though maternity aren't quite in the rotation yet. I'm sure there will be plenty of time for that.

As for you baby, we get to go back in two weeks and get a new picture taken! I was expecting to have to wait four more weeks, but they said to come back sooner. We just need to figure out when Daddy can come home from work and meet us so we can see you together. You are about 6 inches long and about 3 ounces now. You have formed all your fingernails... right along with your mamma!

In September when Steve was in the hospital, I accidentally shut the tip of my thumb in the car panel. I got my Christmas wish, and it fell off, having grown very fast since I am pregnant. So we are both growing our nails fast! I painted the rest of my fingernails what I call "Barbie Doll Pink". Not quite the color I was expecting, but it was the only Opi color my family had around. If you are a girl, little Baby, you might appreciate it. But then again, your Dad liked it too...

I so enjoy reading your posts and hearing about you and Travis! It is nice to be able to keep up with child hood friends and their families!
