And just like that, we’re in to a new week!
Baby Tooth is just over 14 weeks today and is about the size of a lemon.
Here’s what else Baby Tooth has been up to this week:
- He/she weighs about 1-1/2 ounces.
- He/she is busy with thumb sucking, toe wiggling, punching, and kicking (although I can’t feel it yet).
- Lanugo (thin, downy hair) is growing all over his/her body for warmth.
- He/she’s liver starts making bile this week — a sign that it’s doing its job right — and the spleen starts helping in the production of red blood cells.
And here’s what’s been happening with me this past week:
Weight gained: Didn’t check this week…had no desire to know.
Workouts: I got four days in this past week(!) including two treadmill workouts, two strength workouts, and three sessions doing my 10lb. Slimdown DVD (upper body twice and full body once).
Symptoms: Round ligament pains for sure. They come and go and really only last a second, but it legit feels like somebody is just taking all of my abdominal muscles and stretching them out like a resistance band. The girls are still a bit sore, but it seems to be subsiding a bit. My face has also broken out with about 8 lovely zits this week.
Food Aversions: Nada
Food Cravings: Again, I’m still pretty equal opportunity in the food department. My biggest cravings have been in the form of sweets (at least twice this week during work I could not get my brain off of doughnuts), but I feel like most of my eating/meals have been pretty normal to what they usually are. Lots of yogurt bowls, carbs (still loving them like woah), cooked veggies, and peanut butter.
Sleep: Good! Except for having to get up to pee at least once or twice a night, sleep is good. I’m actually hoping to get more of it this week by getting to bed early.
Fun & Weird Stuff From the Week: I swear, some days my belly is bigger than others. Does that sound crazy? Is that normal? Earlier in the week, I mentioned that it seemed like the belly grew overnight. This photo was taken on Wednesday (and I was a bit surprised by the reflection in the mirror, in case you couldn’t tell by my corny face).
But comparing it to Sunday, I swear it looks bigger, no?
Ehh, I don’t know. Maybe I’m just going crazy.
Baby Items Purchased: Well, I guess they’re technically for me in preparation for the baby, but I did make a few purchases on Amazon this week…
Three new workout DVD’s (which were all super cheap, between $6-14 each) and a Baby Bargains book which I’ve had numerous people recommend to me.
I’ve also been doing a ton of “window shopping” online and have been updating my Pinterest boards with some new ideas…
I’m pretty sure we’ve agreed on the style of furniture we like! I’ll tell ya, it doesn’t get much easier than this with me and Jay. So far, we’re still in agreement on just about everything.
Looking Forward To: Getting and trying out my new workout DVD’s and continuing to see the belly grow!
Question for this week:
For the moms out there…are there any websites/books/brands of anything that you swear by?
