We are nearing the end of the second trimester, Baby M. Get ready to grow! 🙂 Seriously, time is really starting to fly by. June will be here before you know it.
What’s up with baby? According to MSN Health, “Although your baby’s eyes have been sealed shut for the last few months, they will soon open and begin to blink. Depending on ethnicity, some babies will be born with blue or gray-blue eyes (which may change color in the first year of life) and some will be born with brown or dark eyes. Eyelashes are growing in, as is more hair on the head.” He probably weighs close to two pounds and is about 14 inches. I know that’s still really small, but it seems like he is going to run out of room in there!
Total Weight Gain: I’ll update after tomorrow’s doctor’s appointment. I have a glucose test… wish me luck! (Update: I’ve officially gained 25 pounds. I think I’ve slowed down a bit, because that’s what I assumed I had gained a week or so ago.)
My Body: This week didn’t feel like a growth spurt the way some of the other weeks have. I feel about the same! No changes to report other than I now get out of breath much easier. I think he’s finally reached my rib cage!
Maternity Clothes: Still haven’t gone shopping! I’m going to look ridiculous at the race this weekend.
Cravings: Peanut butter! (Along with the usual spicy and sour.)
Sleep: I had a break for a while, but now I officially can’t sleep through the night again.
Baby Items Bought/Received: I got a few books, but I still have a strong desire to buy nursery items!
Best Baby Moment: Baby is at the point where he would probably survive outside of the womb. Pretty exciting stuff! He’s a full-fledged little human now. 🙂
Goals: Get the nursery ready!
Worries: This might be random, but I’m starting to worry about the traits we will pass down to the baby. Will he be stubborn and opinionated like me? Will he be easily fixated on things (read: obsessed) like his dad? Sorry, Ryne. It’s true! I just want the best for him, but I have no idea who this little boy will grow up to be like! Let’s just hope he gets the better traits from each of us. Lord knows the world doesn’t need another child like Ryne or teenager like me. We were both out of control at different times in our lives. Oh well, we love you regardless, Baby M!
