16 weeks pregnant

Bub is now about the size of an avocado (11.6 centimetres long from crown to rump and weighing 100 grams). In the next three weeks he'll go through a tremendous growth spurt, doubling his weight and adding centimetres to his length. 

In or out of the womb, babies are playful creatures. Yours may already have discovered his first toy -- the umbilical cord -- which he'll enjoy pulling and grabbing. Sometimes he may even clutch it so tight that less oxygen gets through, but don't worry -- he doesn't hold onto it long enough to harm himself. The circulatory system and urinary tract are in full working order, and he's inhaling and exhaling 
amniotic fluid through his lungs. 

Sometimes, when you move suddenly, you may a feel a slight pain in your sides. Ligaments on each side of your uterus and pelvic walls are stretching as your baby grows. It's normal to feel some pain, but if it continues for a few days or escalates, talk to your midwife.

Some days I feel so energetic and some days I just don't even feel like getting out from the bed. It's gets really difficult at times to stay professional at the same time. I am able to fall asleep at night but because of pressure on bladder I have to get up once or twice during the night and then I stay awake for some time.
I have started craving again. This week I felt like eating Indian Kadhi and my dearest hubby cooked it for me :)
