I made cookies today! Oh and I’m 6 months pregnant! This pregnancy is flying by! I can’t believe it. It feels like yesterday I had just found out. So much has happened in between. I’ve been meaning to do pregnancy updates, so from now on you’ll see more of these 🙂
Baby Size & Development:
Baby is about the size of an eggplant (12.5in) and weighs about 1.25lbs. Baby is estimated to gain 4-6 ounces per week from here on out! He/she seems to be getting stronger day by day too… The kicks and movements are starting to keep me up for a bit.
Signs & Symptoms:
Lower abdominal aches. I mean it’s expected as my uterus is being stretched like crazy.
Back aches. My back has been aching so much in the mornings. I have to sleep with about 4 pillows to be a little bit comfortable.
Round ligament pain. This one is no fun, but usually subsides after a bit!
Ever since I hit 20 weeks I’ve been craving lots of junk food. Burgers, fries, burritos, ice-cream, candy, soda, mac n cheese… The usual. But I’ve noticed I usually get the burger and fries. I need the protein anyways 😉
What I Most Look Forward To:
To see if this baby is she or a he! I kinda started getting curious when my ultrasound tech said he knew what the gender was, but I let it go haha! I’ve gotten lots of funny looks/responses when I tell people I don’t want to know the sex of the baby. I don’t know… there seems to be something special about finding out when were face to face ❤
