What’s new with the baby?
Fingerprints have formed on your baby’s tiny fingertips, her veins and organs are clearly visible through her still-thin skin, and her body is starting to catch up with her head — which makes up just a third of her body size now. If you’re having a girl, she now has more than 2 million eggs in her ovaries. Your baby is almost 3 inches long (about the size of a pea pod) and weighs nearly an ounce.
Food comparison this week is…
How am I feeling?
Better! The nausea has really seemed to subside in the last week or so, but I still don’t feel great if I go too long without a meal. Food is still the ever important topic in my mind. Otherwise, not too much to report in this category.
Still haven’t done it. Next week, for sure.
What do I miss? What am I looking forward to?
I updated the heading for this section, because I feel like I am looking forward to more things that I am missing, so I wanted to balance the scales. I miss not seeing my family more often, but Urijah and I are heading to the Great State of the Beach (Florida) in about a week and a half to see my Mom and Dad, so that’s what I’m looking forward to. Also, only about 3 more weeks till we can find out (hopefully) what this baby is!! Any guesses? There hasn’t been nearly the discussion about the sex this go round, so I’m not sure which way everyone is leaning. Scott says girl, I *think* it’s a girl, just because this pregnancy feels so different than the last one (even though Mom told me that was faulty logic.). Anyone else?
I got my Potbelly chicken salad sandwich last week, and already this morning I was thinking about when I could get another one. I really need that franchise to open in Georgetown. Other than that, no strange cravings. Just hungry in general. And apparently I am eating more and longer than usual….Scott said he keeps noticing that he’s always done way before me and I’m still just plodding along finishing every single thing. Maybe I should quit putting off weighing myself. This could get out of hand before I know it.
We went to IKEA the other night and got a really cool toy storage system that will be for Urijah’s new room once it is done. But for now it is living in the front room that we have made into a pseudo-playroom. With an antique china cabinet full of expensive china. Because we just thought that all went together really well. But what it did for us was take every single toy out of the living room. Scott even busted me yesterday just standing at the edge of the living room gazing at how peaceful and clean it looked with all the toys relocated. If only for a while.
Highlights of the week?
The new toy bin was kind of a highlight for me. Also, I had a friend who is working on her photography business take some pictures of Urijah and it was really fun! I’ve even got to see some of them already and some turned out super cute! I’ll post those later in the week to spread out the joy.
