Weight Gain: About 4kg still
Innie or Outtie: Innie still - but I have a very deep innie bellybutton so if it pops at all it won’t be till much later.
Maternity Clothes: Yup, too big for the regulars now!
Sleep: Sleeping pretty badly - waking up every hour or so, at least being able to get back to sleep but getting more than 2-3 hours uninterrupted sleep is a godsend.
Pregnancy Perk: Feeling so empowered!
Embarrassing Pregnant Moment: None, other than dropping things and having baby brain.
Best Moment this week: Going to Melbourne to see your Auntie Alisha and Uncle Jernej, and coming home where your movement completely picked up after very little movement over that weekend (which freaked me out!).
Oh and finding out that the placenta has moved, so no chance of a c-section unless you don’t turn, or if it’s an emergency - yay!
Baby Purchases this week: None this week, will probably be getting your bassinet later this week though.
Gender: Still a girl, as far as we’re aware!
Movement: Heaps of movement, you barely sit still!
Food Cravings: Strawberries are still up there, along with icecream.
Food Aversions: Pizza and bacon.
How’s Mummy? Got the flu at the moment, which scared me a little because I didn’t want to subject you to any more drugs or anything but luckily it’s just gentle Panadol for us at the moment, and plenty of rest. Also low on iron and Vit D but am upping my dosages on both so we should have that in order soon.
How’s Daddy? He’s been so loving and caring - taking care of me while I’ve been sick, bringing me home nice things, cooking dinner, he’s been wonderful. He kisses you goodbye before leaving for work every day <3
What I am looking forward to: Meeting you!
Our Baby in Veggie/Fruit Terms: You’re the size of an eggplant! Approximately 36cm long and around 760 grams in weight.
What Baby Peanut is up to: Baby’s soaking up your antibodies, getting her immune system ready for life outside the womb. Eyes are forming, and she’ll soon be practicing the blink…perfect for batting those freshly grown lashes.
