So according to the weekly email that I signed up for, this week our baby-to-be is the size of a lemon. (Or according to another website, "Your baby now weighs about an ounce and is the length of a flip phone, or roughly 3.5 inches." LOL)
Which is considerably bigger than a few weeks ago when s/he was the size of a kumquat!
I don't mean to spill all my pregnancy details & side affects but I just felt like I needed to journal a few things...so bear with me!
The last few weeks I've been feeling lots better!
I've still got to eat every 2 hours or else I start to feel yucky...so I feel like I am eating all the time! The other night I woke up at 3:30 in the morning to eat a banana and a cupcake I was so hungry! Talk about a midnight snack! Oh and I have eaten through 5 jars of pickles these past 3 months...single handedly I might add!
I also get a bad headache pretty much every day and I have to go to the bathroom like every half hour it seems like! My back and hips usually feel round the clock achy, oh and if I do anything out of my normal schedule like go to my sibling's showchoir concert and stay up late or play at Disneyland all day it takes me like 2 days to recover, I just get so tired these days! haha.
I am also really good at being a bit scatterbrained. Spelling has not been my friend the last few weeks so spell check has become my very good friend. It's weird because I just completely blank out while trying to spell easy words!!! Also, basic math is beyond me. While playing the dice game with Scott I was in charge of tallying our points and it was a disaster. I gave Scott way too many points! :] (this paragraph alone had 5 spelling errors by the time I checked! haha)
Another example is that the other night I got dinner all ready, preheated the oven, set the timer for a half hour, came back in a half hour to check on dinner and I had totally forgotten to actually put the casserole in the oven so it ended up taking double the time to cook dinner...but don't worry it all worked out!
Despite all the aches and pains I really do feel GREAT! It is fun to go through all these changes in the name of the end result is going to be a cute little mini me or mini Scott! haha.
I had my 2nd doctor's appointment last week, and heard the heartbeat loud and strong. I couldn't believe for such a little babe the heartbeat was so loud and fast and strong AND that was really coming from my baby inside of there! I may or may not have cried a little on the drive home. It was pretty neat! My next appointment is in just a few weeks and then Jan. 13th we get to find out whether this bebe is a boy or girl baby!!!
It is so weird/fun to say that I am 3 1/2 months pregnant! (A third of the way through! Yippee!) Also it is weird/fun to compare your unborn child to a new fruit every week! haha. Don't ya just love it??! Oh and here's me with my ever growing lil belly :]
