My Pregnancy Week 16

Pregnancy Week 16

Your baby continues to be busy, growing and developing inside of you. He’s now about the size of an avocado, measuring approximately four and a half inches and weighing roughly three ounces. If you are having multiples, each twin is about 4 inches, and 120 grams. His heart is now pumping 25 quarts of blood every day, and his bladder is emptying every 45 minutes.

Her limbs are even more developed and her movements have become increasingly coordinated. She doesn’t have any hair yet, but the patterning of her scalp has begun.

What’s in the future for your little one? A growth spurt is just around the corner! In the coming weeks, he will double his weight and add inches to his frame. His fingernails are growing, and don’t be surprised if you have to cut them right after birth!

    I’m 16 weeks & 5 days. Had to do some doctoring due to horrible cramps, but I was told everything was fine. Thank God. This will be my second child & we are hoping for a boy but wont find out until I’m 20 weeks.

      I am sixteen weeks few days, and every once in a while i feel like rumbles or clutters down below. Its kinda crazy because it happens around the same times. Maybe after ive emptied my bladder or ate something real yummy. When lying on my side i can feel little jerks of pleasure. Does that help?

    I am 16 weeks 4 days pregnant and my little one has been very active inside of me lately. This will be child number 4 and daddy and our children can not be happier. I have been having really bad cramps and chronic migraines lately. I am looking like I am 7 months but my ultra sound says I’m only having one. Confused…… Staying positive.

    Hello Ladies, I am just now joining. This is my first blog. I not a social media fanatic. My life and personal business I usually keep private, but today I feel I can share and relate to you all about what I am going through. I am 16 weeks today. I don’t know what I am having yet! I am a mother of two sons ages 21 and youngest 19 on tomorrow. Yes Ladies you heard me correctly. I have mixed emotions about my unexpected bundle. There’s a 19 year age difference in my children. I don’t know how to feel. My husband and I are excited but at the same time sad because our sons are not so excepting :( However we are praying for a beautiful and HEALTHY daughter !! Any advice will be appreciated

      Katrina, God Bless your unexpected bundle of joy to come! My own brother and his wife had a baby boy when their two oldest were 18 and 22. They felt all the things you are experiencing. I would suggest you wallow in the happiness your husband and you are feeling—chances are your boys will come around when the baby arrives. This can be such a special time! Think of the knowledge you’ve gained! Most of all you know how itme flies and you will treasure every moment with thie baby. Relax. Breathe deeply. Do not engage in angry discussions with your boys. Be happy!

    • I believe u will be a fine mother congrats

You sohould be bale to know the sex at about 20 weeks….remember—whatever you “wish” for—what you WANT is ahealthy baby! Have you thought of names? We’re still deciding….it’s looking like Max or Marcus if a boy and Makenzi or Makayla if a girl….
