Baby's size: 3.75 lbs. and 16.7" long. About the size of a jicama(??)...is that a type of potato?? Whoa! Baby 2 is getting huge!
Sleep: When I first lay down, I feel like I can't breathe. Very scary! But other than that and my 3x/night trips to the bathroom, I'm sleeping pretty well!
Maternity clothes: Lots of tank tops with my stretchy skirt and one pair of capris. When I found out I was pregnant, I donated ALL of my clothes from pregnancy 1 because the thought of wearing them again made me sick/I worked while I was pregnant, so the clothes were a bit too fancy for this time around! Baby 2 is due in October, so silly me, I bought all new FALL clothes...my summer wardrobe leaves much to be desired!
Food cravings: FRIED CHICKEN AND FRUITY DESSERTS! Weird. I have been dying for fried chicken and anything fruity sounds delicious. I just bought local strawberry jam and have eaten the entire jar in one week. Yum!
Food aversions: Vegetables. SO. BAD. I try to gag them down, but I really just can't. To make up for my lack of veggies, I've been extra diligent with my prenatal vitamins and eating lots of fresh fruit.
Symptoms I have: Sore back. And I'm tired always.
Doctor's appointment: Last Thursday...I gained 5lbs:( I had gone 8 weeks with no weight gain and then, BAM! Other than that, everything was great! Her heartbeat was 140bpm. I forgot to ask if she was measuring big, small, or right on track...I am so curious about that!
Movement: Baby 2 is a party animal! And she feels long -- she tickles my right hip bone and my left lung at the same time!
Belly button: It's stretched almost flat...seeing the inside of your belly button is so strange!
What I'm looking forward to: That baby smell!!! And I'm hoping to see a happy toddler taking care of her baby sister...
What I miss: Laying on my stomach!!! Doing the loop and feeling active -- my back is too painful to really do exercise-y walks. I also am just trying to soak up my last 2 months with just Scarjo.
