How your baby’s growing
My baby weighs about 10 1/2 ounces now. She’s also around 6 1/2 inches long from head to bottom and about 10 inches from head to heel — about the size of a banana. (For the first 20 weeks, when a baby’s legs are curled up against her torso and hard to measure, measurements are taken from the top of her head to her bottom — the “crown to rump” measurement. After 20 weeks,she’s measured from head to toe.)
How Far Along?
20 weeks !
How Big Is The Little One?
My little angel is the size of a banana.
Total Weight Gain / Loss?
I have gained 2 pounds this week
I am still in my same ole clothing ! Maybe one day before the end of this pregnancy, I will be able to fit in my maternity pants (insert sarcasm)
What sleep? The sleep I have to now get during day time catnaps because I can not get comfy at night? Yeah…. THAT sleep ! Even pillows are not helping 😦
Best Moment of the Week?
This week has been pretty low key since I returned from the beach. My mom and I met my sister, niece and nephew at Virginia Beach/ Hampton. It was an amazing time.
I even took my little niece to the pool at the hotel one night. My mom and I spent two days out on the beach and it was really relaxing. This morning, I had ExamOne come out to administer a physical exam for a new life insurance policy I am getting for 1 million dollars for my baby. I am gonna go broke paying all these premiums lol. Well, this policy is actually a lot cheaper than my whole life policy per month. I feel that it is so worth it.
Constipation has decided to pay me a visit ! I started taking 3 Colace per day and also eating bite sized prunes. I also feel this heaviness in the bottom of my abdomen. Before I got the constipation under control, I could not tell which was which… Other than insomnia, that is about it for symptoms.
I still do not have much of an appetite but I am able to stomach meat now so I have been making a lot of dishes with organic grass fed beef.
Cubed Steak with onion gravy
Slow Cooker Pot Roast with Onion Gravy
Salty food and sweets. Everything tastes salty to me since pregnancy, especially my favorite Chick Fil A. 😦
It’s A …. Girl ! (but you already knew that)
What I Miss?
What I Am Looking Forward To?
Holding my baby and seeing her little face and hearing what she sounds like !
Still nothing. Just bloat from the constipation that is finally going down.
Baby / Mommy Purchases?
I bought another baby hat for the hospital with a huge satin bow.
