Baby’s Size: Watermelon (19 – 22 in., 6.5 lbs.)
Symptoms: Not sure if it counts as a “symptom” but I am bumping into things all the time. I went to sit down for dinner tonight and totally misjudged the size of my belly and smacked it right on the table. Monkey Girl thought that was quite funny!
Weight Gain: 15.7 lbs (down 1 lb. since last week). I still have the sweet tooth but I bought a TON of apples and pineapples the other day and have been trying to eat those and avoid processed sugary snacks. I am also still trying to use the Paleo meal plan to avoid excess carbs in my diet (though I am not totally Paleo by any means).
Movement: It is fun now to see his movement through my clothing. I was in court the other day and a I noticed a woman staring at my belly with a big grin… I realized he had just done a full roll and it must have looked pretty silly
Thoughts from Monkey Girl: We have been trying to discuss a lot more what things will be like when baby brother comes home. Mainly, that she will have to share mommy with him and there will be times where I won’t be able to just get up and help her. She acts like she understands but I have to remind myself that she is only 2 1/2 and there will definitely be an adjustment period. She is still SO EXCITED though to meet him so I hope that wins over
