Size of Baby: Naval orange, onion, turnip, or a pomegranate. All over the board this week. I also saw something that says an iPhone 4, which is a nice change from the fruit comparisons. I am interested to see if the ultrasound tech or doctor will mention the length of our girl during our 20 week scan. Both Will and I are pretty tall, and most people in our families are as well. Very curious to see if she will fallow in those footsteps.
Gender: Baby girl.
Weight Gain: Still hovering at about 5-6 pounds. The weight gain is supposed to be about a pound a week these days. Despite me eating a ton, still nowhere close to that mark.
Feeling: Pretty good. I’ve had some MAJOR emotional/moody moments in the past week, hoping that symptom is NOT here to stay. Tired.
Maternity Clothes: I wish all my pants were maternity since they’re so much more comfortable, but still mixing between those and my regular clothes.
Besides that just lots of planning. I will probably pull the trigger on a piece of furniture or two in the next week or two.
Movement: I swore I felt some flutters last week, but I haven’t felt any lately I don’t think. Hoping that changes! Our last two ultrasounds she was kind of just hanging out, legs crossed, possible asleep. Maybe she is totally 100% opposite her Mama and will be calm and relaxed?
Symptoms: Neck and back pain. Tailbone pain. Bellybutton getting more and more shallow. Light headedness if I stand up too fast, and still getting really out of breath when I walk and talk at the same time. Giving tours at work is getting increasingly more exhausting. So embarrassing to be out of breath from just walking up the stairs!
Sleep: Pretty good. I have been sleeping through the night, but have to basically run to the bathroom as soon as I wake up.
Cravings: Lots of ice cream this week. And loving fruit lately.
What I Miss: Eating and drinking whatever I want, but it has been nowhere near as hard as I thought it would.
Best Moment This Week: Nursery planning. The bump getting a little bigger. And I think we decided on a name!
Thankful For: Our health and an amazing husband. Family, friends, and all the millions of things we are blessed with. Truly loving this life!
