|week 16 - week 21|
This weekend I graduated to week 21. I would say it is going good but I caught a cold and have been feeling pretty lousy since Sunday. I can tell you that being sick while pregnant is horrible. The worst part of it is lack of sleep. It is nearly impossible to find a comfortable position while pregnant and stuffed up. I called in sick on Monday and relaxed most of the day. Today I had to go to work though. There was no one to cover my shift same with tomorrow. Boo. I guess it is better to be at work doing something than just sitting at home trying to sleep unsuccessfully.
In the above picture there is 6 weeks of growth and really I don't see much, I definitely feel it though.
|Your baby -- currently the length of a carrot -- weighs about 3/4 of a pound. (Length: 10 1/2 inches, head to heel.)|
Your baby now weighs about three-quarters of a pound and is approximately 10 1/2 inches long — the length of a carrot. You may soon feel like she's practicing martial arts as her initial fluttering movements turn into full-fledged kicks and nudges. You may also discover a pattern to her activity as you get to know her better. In other developments, your baby's eyebrows and lids are present now, and if you're having a girl, her vagina has begun to form as well.
