Baby’s Size: Papaya (8 in., 1.2 lbs.)
Symptoms: It’s like my bladder shrunk this week! I am having to pee all the time (and I thought that the second trimester was supposed to give you a break from the constant bathroom breaks…). Other than that, feeling great!!
Weight Gain: .5 lbs (same as last week).
Cravings: Buffalo anything (wings, salad, pita….).
Food Aversions: Nothing new.
Movement: He is moving more and more, but it is on his own schedule. I can’t wait until it is strong enough for Monkey Girl to feel!!
Medical Happenings: Went back this past Friday to hopefully get the ultrasound picture of his spine that we needed. Looks like the spicy food worked because he was in the perfect position and his spine looks great!
Sleep: Still having a hard time getting comfortable. I am so over this part of it!
Thoughts from Monkey Girl: When we go to the library I always let Monkey Girl pick out a few books on her own. This last week she picked out one called “Waiting for Baby.” It couldn’t be more perfect. I talks about the size of the baby, what it eats, if it is a boy or a girl, and the changes that will be coming. It is now one of the books she insists on reading when she goes potty. She is still so excited to be a big sister!
