Baby has some hair, per the ultrasound on 1/18!!!!
How Big Is Baby: A durianm fruit, he/she weighs about 4.2 to 5.8 pounds and measures about 17.2 to 18.7 inches. And may grow up to a full inch this week — amazing. He/She’s keeping its eyes open while awake. He/She’s also starting to coordinate breathing with sucking and swallowing. His/Her bones are hardening. And he/she’s going through (more) major brain development — that’s one smart baby.
Sleep: I have good nights and bad – naps are better.
Diet/Cravings/Aversions: Can’t get enough Honey Crisp Apples, water, and Entenmann’s Donuts.
Exercise: Can’t walk as far some days, but still trying.
Movement: Baby likes to move its entire body from one side of my belly to the other, pretty crazy to watch. Less kicking now and more body rolling if you will!
The Belly: Received a lot of love at my baby shower this past week and loved it. Check out this weeks’ photo compared to 24 weeks when I wore the same dress to my CO shower… holy BELLY!
What I’m Loving: Going through all of the new baby items we’ve received and picturing a little bundle in them in +/- 7 weeks…. AHHH!
Worries: I’m +/- 7 weeks from going into labor.. and then becoming a mom. I think that’s enough for now.
Other Symptoms: Some leg/foot cramps at night.
What I’m Looking Forward to: Purchasing our last list of necessities for baby and packing my hospital bag. Things are getting real and we can hardly believe it.
Best Moment of the Week: So many moments. My parents were in town to celebrate my birthday and mom attended my NYC baby shower, which was amazingly hosted and put together by my mother-in-law. Also, having my parents come to our ultrasound to see the little bundle WITH HAIR. Setting up the glider, organizing baby clothes in the dresser…. everything this week was awesome.
