Wow… here we are in the third trimester!!
In a short 13 weeks we will get to meet our little man! I still cannot believe it. It’s Halloween week, so I thought I would wear my Halloween shirt for this week’s picture.
This week our little guy weighs TWO pounds, and although babycenter compares him to a head of cauliflower I will compare him to his pumpkin! My wonderful sister in law Diana carved him a little elephant 🙂
This week has been a bit uncomfortable again for me, I have been experiencing a lot of round ligament pain on my right side, which is to be expected but ouchie. Turning from side to side at night has been turning into an Olympic event, so hard and I am not even that big yet! I can really only sleep on my left side now a days because when I move to my right side it is a bit more uncomfortable. My heartburn is gone with the help of my daily zantac (or shall I say WalZan, from walgreens). It really does work, so if you are preggo and have heartburn talk to your doc and see if they recommend you taking it.
He still loves music and now that he can really hear Erik and I he reacts to our voices. We were watching tv Tuesday night and we were laughing a lot and he would jump around and kick like crazy. It was almost as if he was laughing along with us 🙂
According to Babycenter.com, “This week, your baby weighs almost 2 pounds (like a head of cauliflower) and is about 14 1/2 inches long with her legs extended. She’s sleeping and waking at regular intervals, opening and closing her eyes, and perhaps even sucking her fingers. With more brain tissue developing, your baby’s brain is very active now. While her lungs are still immature, they would be capable of functioning — with a lot of medical help — if she were to be born now. Chalk up any tiny rhythmic movements you may be feeling to a case of baby hiccups, which may be common from now on. Each episode usually lasts only a few moments, and they don’t bother her, so just relax and enjoy the tickle.”
