Baby’s Size: Ear of Corn (8.5 in., 1.5 lbs.)
Symptoms: I am feeling great! I still want to eat all the time but I have found that as long as I eat regular small snacks I do ok.
Weight Gain: 2.5 lbs (up 2 from last week).
Cravings: Soups, though I think that has more to do with the fall weather than being pregnant
Food Aversions: Nothing new.
Movement: He is moving more and more. He is usually pretty low which means a lot of great bladder hits (fun for mommy). I think we are almost to the stage where Monkey Girl will be able to feel him move!
Sleep: Still having a hard time getting comfortable. I am so over this part of it!
Thoughts from Monkey Girl: This week she found some of her old stuffed animals that were small (one was actually a monkey that we got her doll to carry since she always carries around her Monkey). She has decided that these are “brother’s animals” and that she will take good care of them for her. Today we were visiting with friends who have a 5 month old baby boy. Any time he would cry she would say “he needs me” and then run to him, give him a kiss, and say “it’s ok.” She is such a loving girl and will be a great big sister.
