Oh my goodness, only 15 more weeks until we get to meet our little man! Isn’t that insane, I feel like it was just yesterday I was announcing my pregnancy.
yay for new boots🙂 This week he weighs as much as a rutabaga, or a yellow turnip, and since we don’t eat those I went with a regular turnip this week.
I can sure feel all 1.5 lbs of his little body in my belly too. He has been moving around like crazy. He has a pretty routine schedule, just like is mommy. He wakes up around 8am dancing around a little bit while I drive to work, then goes back to sleep until I have my first snack around 10am. Says hi then goes back to sleep until after lunch.
He really kicks it into high gear from about 5-10, with a few periods of rest, but if we are watching The Voice, which I am convinced is his favorite show, he is very very active. Maybe, unlike his mommy and daddy, he will have some sort of musical talent.
According to babycenter.com, “Head to heels, your baby now measures about 13 1/2 inches. Her weight — a pound and a half — isn’t much more than an average rutabaga, but she’s beginning to exchange her long, lean look for some baby fat. As she does, her wrinkled skin will begin to smooth out and she’ll start to look more and more like a newborn. She’s also growing more hair — and if you could see it, you’d now be able to discern its color and texture.”
I have a few more weeks until my glucose-screening test, which will take place at my next appointment the week of my baby shower… ahh speaking of baby shower, Diana, my sister in law, HANDMADE all the invitations for my baby shower and I got mine in the mail on Tuesday! She is an incredible designer, hire her for all of your design needs!!
Aren’t they the cutest invitations you have ever seen!!?! Ah I am so in love with them, I actually squealed when I opened the envelope! I want that baby elephant.
I have been feeling pretty good this week, a little “doughy”, but I think my at home workouts have been helping me out in that department. I also think lifting at home has been giving me a bit more energy all week, win win! I have also been eating better the past few weeks. I seem to be getting fuller much quicker so I have learned to eat slower and really listen to my body. I am just happy in general!
This week Ella wanted to actually be involved in the photo shoot, actually that is a lie, I forced her to get into the picture with me… This is how it went down.
