How big is baby? Sweet po! 5.6" long and 6.7 ounces; he's in the middle of a growth spurt, practicing his hiccups, yawns, sucking and swallowing, and moving like a ninja! Love feeling all those kicks, Baby Boy!!!
Physical differences from last week? I weighed 117.6 this morning; which is a 1 pound gain from last week, and an overall gain of 8 pounds. My belleh has become the designated crumb catcher. Still wearing my regular pants with the belly band and maternity shirts; I bought some maternity leggings and they are super comfy! No new stretch marks and the belly button is in, but shallow.
|Try not to be too jealous of my cheetah print straightener.|
How I'm feeling? Umm...I actually fainted yesterday...in Destination Maternity. Am thinking low blood sugar is to blame. My legs buckled and I fell forward onto the cashier, everything went black, I couldn't speak, and I was covered in sweat. So embarrassing. And it's happened two more times since then... Must call Dr. O in the morning. It doesn't help that my allergies are acting up and I had a slight fever (100.6) yesterday afternoon. Besides all that, though, I had tons of energy during the week. We walked 3 nights and I followed my diet. I craved corn dogs and fried pickles after watching Food Network...and I didn't get either. ::sad face:: Insomnia is still a problem, but I sleep like the dead once I finally crash. Also, having occasional painful twinges when I lift Lu out of the bath or car seat.
What's been on my mind? There should really be some kind of disclaimer before tear-jerker scenes!
What I'm looking forward to? Being half-baked in two weeks.
Best moment this week? The déjà vu feeling at Lucy's party... Right after she was born I dreamt about sporting a cute baby bump at her first birthday party.
