Baby at 16 Weeks Pregnant
Your baby’s bones are hardening and her arms and legs are formed. They will soon be kicking your partner’s uterus.
Her mouth is also forming. The same mouth which will, inevitably, talk back to you when she’s 16. The fingernails are present and also forming.
You’re growing a human!

Mom at 16 Weeks Pregnant
Mom won’t likely feel the baby just yet, but will start feeling her soon. For now, she’ll feel something like “fluttering”, and will have a hard time discerning the flutters from gas.
You don’t have the same excuse.
You can expect your partner to be talking about the baby all the time, as well as reading books, magazines, and watching videos.
Try your best to pull yourself away from watching videos of poodles doing aerobics. Babies are way less creepy.
She may start send you out for Taco Bell at midnight. Finally, you both have the same great ideas.
Pregnancy Tips for Dad at 16 Weeks
If you haven’t started getting your finances in order, you may consider putting together a spreadsheet of expenses for pregnancy and the first year of your baby’s life.
Babies don’t pay for themselves, and can’t legally work until they’re around 16.
As a way to offset your costs, encourage your partner to have a baby shower, and even start planning it!
People will give you loads of gifts. Make your best effort to get out as much as you can now, because once your little bundle shows up you’ll have much less time to do so.
