Is this pregnancy taking longer than the last one? I guess you just forget how long it feels. I think weekly updates make it seem more spread out. I don’t know. It just feels long. Maybe it’s all my appointments already. Maybe it’s because this time I’m not working out the home. I don’t know. Top it off with a sinus/ear infection-y illness which has me on the couch all this weekend, and I’m like “UGH!!” Anyways, this will be all about the New Baby.
How Big is Baby: Baby is the size of a lemon!! 3.5 inches and 1.5 oz.
Weight Gain: I was at 9 but I haven’t eaten much with this sinus thing. So I’m probably down.
Gender: Ok I will carefully change how I word this. I want a girl. I think it would be really fun. But I think it’s a boy and so does Hubs. (For the record I most importantly want a healthy baby)
Names: I should just take out this question because I won’t share them anyways. I’m that person.
Symptoms: Nothing pregnancy related at least not that’s trumping this illness.
Sleep: Sleeping like a beast but the weirdest dreams….
Movement: I felt Baby H2O move twice this week. HOLLA
Maternity Clothes: I go back and forth. My belly really isn’t that big. They are just so cozy.
Food Cravings: I was craving a mango smoothie but Hubs is a good providor.
Food Aversions: None really. High five!
Stretchmarks: None (even from last time)
What I’m Looking Forward To: Being not sick anymore. Being off of pelvic restriction.
What I Miss: Picking up Lemonade 😦
Next Drs Appointment: Dec 28 as long as everything keeps going well.
More information from the Bump:
- He’s probably sucking his thumb and wiggling his toes in there!
- His kidneys are making urine, and his liver and spleen are doing their jobs, too.
- And he’s growing lanugo, a thin, peach-fuzz-like hair, all over his body — it will help him keep warm!
Best Moment of the Week: Seeing baby last week!
