My Pregnancy Week 16Brought to you by
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!
