16 weeks pregnant: Fast facts
Your baby is about the size of an avocado now: 4 1/2 inches long (head to rump) and 3 1/2 oz.
The patterning of your baby's scalp has begun, and toenails are growing. Your little one's heart is pumping about 25 quarts of blood a day.
Moms-to-be are more likely to have tender gums that bleed when flossed or brushed. Brush thoroughly but gently at least twice a day, floss daily, and see your dentist regularly.
Mystified by maternity sizes? No worries. Whatever your normal clothing size is, you'll wear the same size in maternity clothes.
