Well, according to babycenter.com our baby girl is the size/weight of four navel oranges this week.
and let me tell you all, I have the tummy to show it. She's got quite the mansion in there!
I know I usually only do these updates every other week but I figured since my doctor's appointments are more frequent now, and the thought of 4 oranges was just too cute to handle....I'd do one today.
and I'd be lying if I said the fact that I actually shaved my legs AND straightened my hair today didn't have something to do with it.
(believe me- shaving legs is no small task these days.)
-well I've been to four different doctors in the course of this pregnancy and every one of them has said November 12th is spot on for our due date. I'm measuring right on target and can't believe how close we're getting!
-I'm much more emotional these days- I wouldn't say I have terrible mood swings but I can definitely cry at the drop of a pin (see yesterday's post).
-baby girl loves kicking me in the ribs these days, it seems she's taken up a permanent residence up there. SO fun for Mom! (sarcasm)
-heartburn. heartburn. heartburn. Who knew you could be so terrible! Ha. I wish I could figure out what triggers it. It just seems like I get it every night no matter what I eat, suggestions? I promise I don't eat mexican food every day either... lol
-The other night Steve rolled over, kissed my belly, and gave it a big hug in his sleep. Sweetest. thing. ever. It of course woke me up and brought me to tears- I'm still melted on the floor. Feel free to stop by and scrape me up at your earliest convenience.
-still no stretch marks or swelling! Thank you Mom for your good genes.
- I'm addicted to birth stories- I thought that maybe they would freak me out but I'm just getting so excited to go through the whole process! Call it naivety- it probably is- but it just seems really exciting to me at this point!
-I'm also really excited to breast feed (too much information?)! I've had a few really vivid dreams about breastfeeding our little girl and I wake up so excited! I don't even know how to describe how I feel about it- seeing as I've never experienced it before- but I just can't wait to bond with my little girl. and I think it's amazing that my body can not only house her but also feed those little leg rolls. It's kind of amazing. I can't wait.
8.5 weeks to go!
keep growing pretty girl. Momma can't wait to meet you.
