Sorry this is couple days late. I came down with the flu. I have slept for the past two days and finally feeling better. The baby must be growing!
Clementine is the size of an avocado. This week Clementine is nearly five inches in length and weighs over three ounces.
It’s official. I’ve gained some baby weight. I have gained 2.5-3 pounds since my last appointment.
I’m still wearing my normal clothes. I’ve noticed more things put pressure on my belly especially gym shorts. It feels a little cramped at the waist, and I know this is only the beginning.
I now think boy. I know. I’m changing it up here. The heartbeat last Wednesday was 145. The average rate for a fetus is 120-160. The old wives tale is that if it’s above 150 it’s a girl. Matt and my mom now think it’s a boy because it’s on the lower end of the spectrum and of course, I now have jumped on the bandwagon.
No movement yet. I’m very excited to feel the baby!
: It’s good. My back still hurts, but I don’t think that is going away anytime soon. I’m just glad to be able to sleep.
I miss being able to drink a margarita. I did not drink them often, but now that I can’t have them, I crave them.
Green Apples, Pickles, Snickers, and Cheese/Mustard.
Symptoms: I have had some of my food aversion come back this week. I will taste something that the baby doesn’t like and completely lose my appetite. The chronic back pain is always around too. Mood swings are taking place. I had a HUGE breakdown over nothing the other night. I cried for a good twenty minutes. My mom called the next morning to make sure everything was okay. Her response was “that’s just not like you, must be a pregnancy meltdown.”
Best Moment This Week: Four of my good friends from elementary school, high school, and college came into town this past weekend. It was the perfect lake day. We went swimming in the lake; all got very crispy from the sun and enjoyed great food. After the lake, we went to a good friend of ours birthday party. He had a giant Dora the explorer Moonbounce along with super fun party hats. It was quite the day! I also LOVED hearing the heartbeat of the baby last Wednesday. I can’t wait to meet him/her!!!
1 more day until vacation with Matt my family! I haven't seen my brother for 6 months!
3 more weeks until Ashley and Luke come home! *Then back to regular exercise
