Baby Development FYI: At 10.5 inches and about 12.7 ounces, she’s big enough now that you’ve probably been feeling her movements. As her digestive system preps for the outside world, she’s manufacturing meconium — the tarry black substance you’ll find in her first dirty diaper (ew)! If it’s a girl, she’s already got a lifetime’s supply of eggs in her womb — about six million of them!
My body has been invaded, how’s that going? The inbetweenie “am I fat or pregnant?” stage is over (thankfully). A cashier at Bojangles even gave me extra fries to feed my little one!
What’s been on my mind? Just been trying to think of things to take care of before the baby gets here. Not necessarily for the the baby, but other things we may never get to if we don’t do them now. Like a new bed or a new mattress. And getting certain parts of the nursery organized and ready to fill with stuff. I ordered these canvas drawer organizers from Walmart this week. Which should work great for a diaper drawer.
Crazy Cravings: Fruits, veggies, cheese, and yogurt. Oh, and an ungodly craving for brownies and chocolate chips.
Highlights: The kicks getting stronger and more frequent. Before getting pregnant I thought the kicks would get on my nerves, but I LOVE THEM! They never get old and I’ll miss them when the baby is here. It is so funny when I’m laying on my back with my feet propped up, the baby will be laying in the same position in my belly, like we are already just hanging out. So whoever you are in there, you must be pretty cool! Would love to feel some hiccups!!
