16 weeks

We are 16w2d. Yay! Our babies are the size of Avocados. No wonder I feel like my belly is so big! Thebump.com says "Watch what you say... tiny bones forming in baby's ears mean the little one can now pick up your voice. Eyebrows, lashes and hair are starting to fill in, and taste buds are forming. And, if you're interested, an ultrasound might be able to determine gender."
Well, I have noticed over the last month or so my language hasn't been ideal and so now I'm really going to need to watch it. I blame it on the hormones but I guess I just need to be more aware. Taste buds...I wonder if these babies are going to be as picky as their mother when it comes to food. James isn't a whole lot better than me, but I definitely stick with what I like and I'm not big on trying new foods without a lot of convincing. My most favorite of all foods is pizza....the food I've craved the most during pregnancy. I sure hope our little ones love pizza or I'm in BIG trouble! As far as determinig gender, we're hoping to find out Thursday!!

I've not had what I would consider strong cravings. If people are talking about food, I find often that I then decide I want to eat that food. Pizza sounds good, constantly. Yesterday, I experienced a new feeling. I've been wanting Crazy Bread from Little Caesar's Pizza for a while now. I've not been able to have any. Well yesterday, I can say I had the strongest craving for it that I've had thus far. It was all I could think about. I could only eat half of my PB&J sandwich because it wasn't crazy bread. I couldn't get it out of my head. It stuck with me all day. The problem is that there isn't a Little Caesar's anywhere close to where we live, at least 30 minutes away and we had plans last night so it wasn't an option. I will have it this weekend, believe me! I will hunt down this food that I want so badly!

My cousin Brittany is about a week behind me in her pregnancy. I talked to her last night and she's starting to feel her little one. I am so ready to feel these babies. For all I know, I might be and it's just not distinguishable enough from other things for me to pick out movements. Then again, I just may not be able to feel them yet. I have seen them, I have heard them, I want to feel them. I just can't wait!!

You'll feel them soon enough! I didn't noticably feel mine until 17 weeks, but looking back I was feeling the baby earlier but didn't know that it was the baby. I probably chalked it up to gas! You could also have an anterior placenta(s) which would inhibit you from feeling the baby until its a little bigger. GL at your u/s! Yes--we definitely want to know what we're having. T-6 days!
