Pregnancy Week 16: Baby Growth
Yet another week, yet another milestone of this super exciting phase!
Your baby is now 16cm long and weighs nearly 135 grams, which is about the size of a medium avocado. Your little one's heart is working hard and is pumping almost a quarter of a gallon of blood a day!
In the upcoming weeks, your baby will go through a huge growth spurt so get ready! Your baby's weight will almost double and they will grow many inches. Your baby's head is more upright and the scalp patterning has begun, even if the hair isn't visible yet.
