This Week Baby A...
Is the size of a spaghetti squash...around 11 inches and a full pound. He's getting so big (and so is mama)! His senses are really developing this week, such as taste buds forming and he's developing a sensation of touch. I read that he may even be able to sense the light from a flashlight if I shine it on my belly, but I haven't tested that out yet.
Indigestion pretty frequently, but that's no surprise since I've had Acid Reflux for years. Super sore body anytime I do anything...like, even when I get up in the morning I'm sore from sleeping. Nothing too terrible though...I don't want to jinx myself, but this pregnancy has been pretty easy-peasy in comparison to the horror stories I've heard.
It looks like about 11-12 pounds total. I go back to the doctor next Friday, so we'll get the official word then. I'm really hoping I can go through the entire thing with around a 25 pound gain, but judging by the past couple of weeks that may not happen...
Baby Boy :)
I have been completely shocked with my lack of real cravings throughout this pregnancy. It's more likely that nothing will sound good, which is super annoying. I'm still pretty pizza-obsessed, and anything with sugar sounds good of course. But nothing out of the ordinary.
Feeling the little guy move around quite a bit these days, which is the best thing ever. I had a couple of days where he wasn't moving as much and it really freaked me out, but after much Google research I learned that at this point it's perfectly normal.
Hasn't been too bad lately. I'm getting used to the trips to the bathroom, the tossing and turning, the soreness... so it doesn't bother me too much now. Not so sure how Arsen feels about it though...my guess is not too pleased :)
Daddy has started talking to little Baby A on a regular basis, which I think is the cutest thing ever. I think the bigger I get and the more kicks he feels, the more real it's becoming to him. It's so cute to see how excited he is. He's started calling him "little man", "little guy" and "buddy". So precious.
Celebrating Christmas and Arsen's birthday knowing that this is the last year that it will be just us (even though we're super excited Baby A will be here next year!). It's definitely fun feeling him move around and knowing he's growing....not as fun seeing myself grow at a rapid rate, but it's for a great cause ;)
Looking Forward To...
Our appointment on Friday. Can't wait to see him kicking around on the sonogram again!
