Size of Baby: 5.1 in & 5.9 oz
Fruit/vegetable comparison: Onion
Total weight gain: 3 pounds
Sleep: Dare I say getting slightly better? The only thing that's bothering me is my sleep positions. Before I got pregnant I always slept on my side. But now, for whatever reason, I find myself waking up on my back! It freaks me out because they say when you're pregnant to avoid sleeping flat on your back. People have reassured me that it's fine and just move when I find myself in that position, but it's still a little scary.
Movement: YES!! Still just feeling tiny movements. A lot of times it feels like a feather tickling me from the inside. Ha!
Unglamorous body changes: I'm feeling a little round ligament pain but that's really about it.
Maternity Clothes? Yes, still just wearing maternity pants and leggings. I found this really great website on Pinterest that links to a whole bunch of maternity stores. I was struggling finding work appropriate clothes, and I had no idea that Ann Taylor Loft had a maternity line! Check it out.
Showing: I'm feeling more pregnant now. I saw my in-laws this past weekend and they commented that I actually look pregnant now. Woo Hoo! I still think you can't tell as much in certain clothes though.
Food cravings: Still wanting milk a lot. I really haven't had very many cravings yet. My husband has been having more cravings then me! I am really trying to eat around 80 grams of protein a day but it's so hard!
What I miss: Not missing too much this week.
Strange experiences: No bizarre comments were made to me this week! And I can't think of anything else out of the ordinary...
Milestones: The baby's rubbery cartilage is now turning to bone, and putting on some fat. It's growing a stronger, thicker umbilical cord, too. (per thebump.com)
Best moment this week: Starting our birthing classes! Ryan & I signed up for a 12 week class on the Bradley Method. I still haven't fully decided on our birthing plan but this class is so informative about your body and baby. I highly recommend taking it, and I'm only 1 class in! :)
Looking forward to: Finding out what we are having in 2 weeks!! Also, I can't wait for Ryan to feel the baby kick for the first time.
