HOW’S BABY DOING
Baby is around 4 inches long (crown to rump) roughly the size of an avocado, and the proportions are getting more 'normal' now. Baby's eyes are are moving to the front of the head, while the ears are making their way to the sides. Baby's legs are finally longer than its arms and the heart which is still under construction, can now pump 25 quarts of blood a day! Baby can now bend its knees and elbows but the skeleton is still soft and developing every day. 

WEIGHT CHANGE
I haven't got on the scales this week, after losing some weight I'm not wanting to see that it has come back already!

SYMPTOMS
My spots have been awful this last week, but now we are almost at 16 weeks they have calmed down so much thankfully! My nose has been really stuffy this week and is the last thing to go since having the flu last week. Ive had a few headaches this week which haven't been pleasant, and I've also got the awful SPD back! I had it with Archie but at a later stage than this, but the past few days it has been starting to hurt but not unbearable as of yet, but it is making me really anxious for it to get worse. I just hope I don't get sciatica again as well. (probably jinxed myself now haven't I)

SLEEP
Ive been sleeping really well this week, and can go almost the whole night without waking for a wee. 

CRAVINGS
Ive not noticed any cravings this week.

HOW I’M FEELING
Im feeling a lot more at ease with this pregnancy now, I had a wobble a couple weeks ago but Im getting there. 

MISS ANYTHING
Fitting into my old clothes, I cant help but feel a bit rubbish when I try something on and its too tight. I really need to love my body more as its growing a miracle inside. 

FAVOURITE RECENT OUTFIT
Wearing my new tops from New Look, also my Mum kindly bought me some new maternity tops from H&M which have been a big help for having a variety of maternity clothes to change up.


BEST MOMENT THIS WEEK
The baby's kicks are getting stronger everyday! I really do love feeling him/her move as it makes the connection grow even stronger. Keep growing Rainbow! 

LOOKING FORWARD TO
Finding out what gender this baby is this weekend! We cant wait to do a little shopping afterwards, and I'm also looking forward to seeing my midwife next Tuesday, I'm very lucky that she comes to the house for all my visits and I am hoping she can offer some advise on my SPD as it is starting to worry me that its going to get unbearable again very soon.
