I don't know if I look as big as I feel like I look, or if I'm at that stage in pregnancy where I am just big (and only getting bigger)... but I feel like I look huge, ha!
Size of baby: cauliflower! And the uterus is the size of a soccer ball... totally weird to talk about my uterus, ha ha! But I suppose that explains why I feel so big :)
Movements: all the time and I still love it! He will drag his feet/hands/body parts against our hands (or anything that is pressing against my belly) and it catches me off guard every time as it's a different sensation than the little kicks and punches I'm used to, but it's so fun!
Cravings: peaches and pineapple. I got some of both this week, yum!
Miss anything: yep, I'm still whining about this... I miss clear skin! I asked my doctor if there was anything I could do for my skin at my appointment last week, knowing that his answer would be no :( He reminded me that this is 100% hormones and I'm not doing anything wrong, which I suppose I needed to hear because I do feel like I'm doing something wrong. I think I feel that way because I was cleared up at this point in my pregnancy with Mia, but every week seems to be worse than the last week with this one. Major bummer!
Random: I've been feeling braxton hicks contractions for weeks now each time I workout, but in the last couple of weeks I notice them other times throughout my days... but mostly when I'm exerting energy towards something. Also, I was really hoping to avoid swelling with this pregnancy but I won't be lucking out in that department either. With all the brutal heat we've been experiencing these last two weeks, my legs are starting to swell. I make time to elevate my feet midday (when Mia is down for her nap) and at the end of the day. Pregnancy is so not glamorous, ha ha! But it's worth it!
Best moment of the week: last week I talked about Mia noticing my big/growing belly, well, this week she has been trying to prove to me that her belly is growing as well, ha ha! One night while I was putting lotion on her and putting on her pjs, Mia kept pulling her belly button out as far as she could. I told her to stop a couple of times and when she kept doing it, I asked her what she was doing. She patter her belly and said, "it's big! it's growing!" I was so caught of guard by her answer and couldn't help but laugh and laugh! Silly girl!! Other times she will randomly pat her belly and tell me, "it's growing! I big!!" Mia is so fun... and better enjoy her normal belly for years and years to come ;)
