Week 16 starts on day 112 and goes up to day 119.
It is your 17e pregnancy week.

Length of your baby: 15 centimeter / 5.9 inches
Weight of your baby: 120 gram / 4.2 ozs

From this period on your baby will be able to distinguish between dark and light and although his eyes are still closed, like you he can tell the difference from night and day.

Urinary Infections

During the time of your pregnancy you are more likely to develop cystitis as your growing uterus puts pressure on your bladder making you feel the need to urinate more frequently. It is more likely that urine is left in your bladder making it susceptible to the germs and bacteria which cause inflammation. Additional sources of infection are the increased amounts of nutrients now present in your urine.

Progesterone replaces hCG

Starting this week the pregnancy hormones (hCG) will steadily be replaced by progesterone which can make your body weaker and your bowels sleepy. This can result in harder stools and constipation due to an accumulation of matter which the bowels take longer to process and excrete. It is important to maintain a healthy and varied diet with plenty of fiber to ensure this doesn't lead to the development of hemorrhoids.

I am now 16 weeks 1 day as of today (03/06/17). Have my first ultra sound this upcoming Thursday! Excited. Had just found out last week I was pregnant. Had not nauseous or vomiting symptoms. Sensitive breast and backache, but thought sensitivity was due to my period about to start. We are happy. My 2nd child after 22 years WOW.

I`m 16 weeks and 4 days, first time mother. I find out the gender on May 1st I`m so excited. I also have almost no symptoms never have I had morning sickness, but at the beginning any dairy makes me sick but now I can`t go a day without at least two glasses of milk. I`m also always tired. I`m 16 but will be 17 in August two months before my due date in October. I`m pretty scared but excited. and trust me school and my baby are my #1 priorities.

Almost 17 weeks and I`m excited. My third and my husband first. He wants me to be cautious at all times. I stay in the doctor office because I`m scared as usual. I`m over protective of my already two boys but now I am having a girl. I just keepnoraying and leave it up to God. I got married 4 months ago and our baby came from love. This is our last one. Very different pregnancy as well. God got this. I pray for all the moms a healthy bundle of joy.

Oops! accidentally hit post! We found out 2 weeks ago through a blood test.. I would have to wait until my anatomy u/s 12-30 if we didn`t. And the anticipation would be making me crazy, so I sympathize with all of you!! I have a boy who`s 8.. Very excited to have a girl this time. I knew she was a girl though bc she felt lighter & so peaceful.. I have a Doppler to check the HR at home. It really gives me peace of mind after 2 MC`s.. Plus I`m a nurse, so it`s good for me to practice my skills :) I thank God everyday for this blessing & pray she is born healthy!!! So far, everything looks great & all genetic screenings came back negative. Good luck to everyone!

I went through extreme depression with my first child. It was mainly because I was away in college away from family, in an abusive relationship, and extremely broke. Long story short I was pretty much sad the entire pregnancy but I always prayed for my Lil one. I prayed that my child would come out to be the opposite of how I was feeling while I was carrying him.i prayed that he would never be alone, never be depressed, and have the strength and courage I didn`t. I prayed many things of my child. I kid you not he came out the happiest baby you would ever see. At 6 and a half he is still full of joy, intelligent, strong, everything I prayed for and more. He gave me the strength to leave that abusive relationship. And my husband raises him as his own. He loves his dad, he knows he isn`t the biological father but that`s good father. He saysi love you dad to him all the time. I am now 16 weeks and 3 days pregnant with baby number 2. My son and husband are super excited. So am I try to think positive, this to shall pass. Good luck with everything. I pay the best for your family
