The bump is arriving! Friday I woke up and could see a big change from the day before. Up until now it’s been a pooch (like I haven’t done sit up in a year) but as of this week, the top of my stomach is starting to bulge out. It seems like the whole belly is moving a little higher. It can’t all be in my head because starting now the baby is supposed to double in size and weight over the next few weeks. This week it’s grow to the size of an Avocado, how cute!
It’s legs are much more developed, head is more erect than it has been, and eyes have moved closer to the front of the head. The ears are close to their final position, too. It’s even started growing toenails. And there’s a lot happening inside as well. For example, baby’s heart is now pumping about 25 quarts of blood each day, and this amount will continue to increase as your baby continues to develop.
I feel great this week, my workouts have been energizing and I have been eating A LOT (I eat as much or more as Andrew sometimes -ugh). Clothes still fit but I’ve used the rubber band trick on the pants a few times and wear a lot of leggings/dresses. I went shopping with Tabitha this weekend for some flowy shirts for me to grow with. Thank goodness it’s so in style to wear baggy tops!
I had my first gender dream last night! I woke up telling Andrew what I had dreamed and he said this weekend he thought the same thing! Hmmmm……
