16 weeks

baby is the size of: an avocado
how far along are you: 16 weeks 2 days
what's happening with baby: baby's legs are now in proportion to the rest of her body, and her head is more erect.  her eyes are closer to the front of her head, and her ears are close to their final position.  the patterning of the scalp has begun, though hair isn't recognizable yet.  baby is growing toenails!  baby's heart is pumping about 25 quarts of blood per day (woah!)
due date: jan 10
maternity clothes: started wearing my maternity work pants, but also still wearing regular pants with a belly band.  i also got a pair of elastic-waist, under-the-belly shorts from old navy that i think i'll probably live in for the rest of the summer - they are insanely comfortable!
sleep: pretty good, now that this cold is starting to pass
best moment this week: getting the negative results on the toxoplasmosis screen.  best. news. ever.  also, i think i felt some movement last night! 
what are you looking forward to: another ultrasound and our 16-week appointment on tuesday!
food cravings: last night, i had a desperate craving for a cheeseburger.  guess what we're having for dinner today?
food/smell aversions: nothing
what do you miss: wine.  i really wanted a glass last night.
symptoms: i think i felt baby moving around last night, but i'm not sure.  otherwise, just the usual - some rlp, back pain, and, of course, this ever-expanding belly!
gender: still thinking girl.
belly button: in.
wedding rings: on
