>> Tuesday, November 19, 2013 – Baby H
How far along: 25 weeks
How big is baby:
By Bump standards, the size of cauliflower- 13.6"-14.8", 1.5-2.5 lbs. I am guessing this baby is on the larger end of that spectrum.. due to family history, prior measurements and just feeling giant.
Stretch marks/belly button: No stretch marks, same ol' innie.
Sleep: Good. Able to fall asleep, stay asleep, get up for one or two pees a night and then am able to get up at 5 am for my quiet morning start. Sunday I got up and by 7 am had made a homemade coffee cake, washed a couple of days of dishes and had coffee.
Movement: Yeah. It was quieter at the end of last week and it made me nervous. John was able to find the heartbeat just fine with the doppler thingy though. I drank a bunch of apple juice and a hot chocolate and baby started moving a ton. I am wondering if it is just starting to get tighter in there.
What I'm loving: Feeling like I am looking more and more pregnant than just fat.
Symptoms: I've had like two episodes of heartburn, but nothing that some Tums didn't take care of right away. My tailbone has also started to have a sharp pain (maybe? I don't really know how to describe it) if I put all my weight on one foot or the other, especially if I stay that way for awhile. Whatever, it doesn't bother me day to day, just randomly once in awhile, and walking distances.. I just go a little slower.
What I'm looking forward to: Thanksgiving still.. I can't wait for the time off.
Best moment of the week: Hearing the heartbeat and then crazy movement Friday night after not feeling much Thursday or Friday and being so nervous.
How I'm feeling: Today... big. I was super hungry on Saturday and then Sunday I just felt like the baby is taking up so much more room than even the day before. I just feel... full.. and like everything is tight and shifting around.. again.
