16 Weeks = Avocado

Today, I'm 16 weeks (that's 4 months!) and 1 day pregnant, and our baby is the size of an avocado. Last week, s/he was supposedly the size of a navel orange--which makes no sense. On what planet is an avocado larger than an orange? Or am I insane?

Anyway, this week, Avocado is growing hair, eyebrows, and eyelashes, and his/her taste buds are forming. Will s/he have a sweet tooth like mommy and daddy?

Things have been awesome on the symptoms front. I'm still peeing my brains out at night, and I'm finding it hard to catch my breath--but those are my only issues. I'm even feeling slightly less exhausted these days, which has been nice.

Oh, dang, I'm sassy.

You are right about the fruit sizes...sometimes they make no sense :)

One is one too many. It's such a terrible, terrible heartache, and I'm very sorry for your loss. Thanks so much for the support. :)

It's totally about the length...I was uber confused by that too...but if you take the avocado's long side vs and orange, its bigger. The same thing will happen when you get to the will think "WHAT?!"

Ah... that does make more sense! :)
