Yep, I am a bum! This week has been a little crazy, but then again it always is crazy Halloween week. Even more so when I fall down stairs and spend a few days sleeping the time away because I am feeling like total crap on top of all the Halloween fun and I spend yesterday feeling sick too. I still had a wonderful birthday though.
I took my picture Monday evening with full intentions to post but then decided that bed was calling my name. But, alas I am finally posting it along with my 16 week pregnancy info.
Monday marked 16 weeks in my pregnancy. Only 8 more weeks until it is considered viable. It seems like a long time away.
At 16 weeks the baby is approximately 4.5 inches (about the size of an avocado) and weighs approximately 3.5 ounces (about the weight of a small chicken breast). The legs are more developed, head is more erect and his ears are in their final position. At this point there are even toenails growing! The Fetus is growing eyelashes, hair as well as eyebrows now. Taste buds are forming and he (or she) is able to listen to my voice.
I know I owe you guys a Zombie Dash Post, that will be up soon. Maybe after dinner tonight. We are meeting up with some of my favorite people for my birthday dinner. Of course we are going to get BBQ, The Fetus loves some BBQ! Then I am heading home to eat some cake and ice cream. Speaking of better better get to baking that cake! i decided to go with orange creme cake with lemon frosting. Mmmm. On that note.. OFF TO THE KITCHEN!!! (Said in a super hero voice. Now I feel like I need a cape to wear to run to the kitchen!)
