Sorry about the following pictures, my short fuse couldn't handle my blurry self portraits. :p
Size: The size of the baby is 6 inches long. The size of me is large :) My belly has definitely "popped".
Weight: I was feeling a little nervous to hop on that scale at the doctors yesterday. And it turns out I only gained 1/2 a pound since my last appointment. I was quite shocked because I feel like I have gained at least 20lbs. All together I am up 5lbs.
Babies Heartbeat: 150bpm. The same as my last appointment.
Sleep: Sleep is a little bit uncomfortable for me now. I have some pretty nasty lower back pain which drives me bonkers.
Symptoms: I have never had acne before and now I am sprouting some pimples. I got a prescription for some acne medication. I also bought my first bottle of foundation. Now to learn how to use it properly is the tricky part. :p My red dots (spider veins) have taken over my body, especially my chest. The doctor says they will hopefully diminish after pregnancy.
I felt actual kicks the other day. It was quite freakish and awesome. It was four good kicks. I was hoping for more, but baby just wanted to say a quick hello
Cravings: I got my sushi fix yesterday :) I am still loving fruit. I wake up and dash right to the fridge for the juiciest fruit I can find. I never really loved sour things as I am more of a salty gal, but sourpatch kids are tasting gooooood lately. I also love popsicles, icream & chocolate.
I have been feeling great this past week. I am really looking forward to my ultrasound appointment next week. J still has not heard the heartbeat. So this appointment will be extra special for him!!!!
I am just loving being pregnant! Sure it can be uncomfortable, scary, and annoying at times but I am always so grateful J & I were given this gift. I am so wowed but what the womans body can do. Life is a pretty amazing thing. Uh Oh I am getting sappy.
