Baby stats: This week the baby is about 11 inches long and (finally) weighs about a pound! According to babycenter, baby has been working hard on developing her pancreas this week...so that is a relief, haha.
Bump picture: I got my hair cut. It is short and easy and with the exception of today when it was ridiculously dry, it has been pretty easy to maintain.
Again this week, no complaints about the old bump-a-roo. I am feeling LARGE all of the sudden. Matt worked in the city Wednesday through Friday this past week and when he got home on Friday afternoon even he said, "Whoa, when did that happen??"
How you doin'?: Great. Still waking up tired which is the pits but otherwise feeling good. My sister is here this week for a visit! Not only do I have an extra set of hands this week, I also get to laugh a lot with my best friend. We are having a great time hanging out with the kids, lounging on the couch watching TV, running errands, and just goofing around. Lily's birthday party is on Saturday so we have a bunch of party related things to do this week. Oh and there is the tiny matter of THE GENDER REVEAL! Getting so close now! Kate has done a great job keeping the secret so far. All that's left is setting up the surprise for the kids (and us of course).
Aversions/Cravings: Food, food, food. Give me all of the food in the universe. I will eat it.
Sleeping: I started sleeping with a king size pillow lengthwise down the middle of the bed. While it may not be the most romantic gesture ever, it does keep me from rolling into the middle of the bed and cursing my husband all night long...so in the end it really is in his best interest.
Movement: Kicks and wiggles all day long. Can't even tell you how much I love this stage of pregnancy. There was a moment in the grocery store when the baby rolled and all of my organs felt like they had been thrust into my throat that I could have done without. For the most part...bring it on baby!
Milestones: Nothing comes to mind this week. I survived my dentist appointment, does that count?
I am looking forward to: BOY OR GIRL !?!?! Saturday is the big day!
Worries: Sunshine, lollipops, and rainbows...no worrying this week.
I think this, and the next few weeks, have been the sweet spot for each of my pregnancies. Not too big to enjoy running around with the kids but big enough that people have started to notice AND I can feel the baby moving all day. Sweet spot for sure.
Best moment of the week: Waking up in the night to baby kicks as opposed to toddler screaming. Don't get me wrong, there is still toddler screaming, but at least a few times it was the kicks that woke me.
