Baby W really liked his arm near his head and had it there for the majority of our time at the imaging center.
I just thought this was crazy cool!
Here's the monthly picture. Here are the past months: Month 1, Month 2, Month 3, Month 4 (for comparison).
How far along?: According to the doctor on Monday, I am measuring 3 days behind our original date. But, I'll keep with the current until I hear otherwise. It's not like Baby W will come on the exact date, anyhow. According to original calculations, I am at 20w1d
How big is Baby?: The size of a cantaloupe -- 6.5 inches long. Baby is also 10.6 ounces. I know the ultrasound technician gave me a closer calculation, but I forgot. It was an intense day!
Maternity clothes?: Mostly. I wear all maternity pants but I still wear some flowing shirts from pre-pregnancy. Now I am officially set. I have 3 different friends who have loaned me clothes and I've bought a few pieces myself. I will be perfect until it gets really cold-- then I might invest in a few large sweaters.
Sleep?: Yes, doing that quite well. Strange dreams are in true form.
Best moment of the week?: Seeing our baby on the screen. I think the coolest part was seeing the 4 chambers of the heart and a strong heartbeat.
Movements?: Yes, but none that are definitive. I feel lots of weird rumbling and bubbles, but no solid kicks-- or none that I am savvy enough to understand just yet. We did see Baby W do a complete somersault on the ultrasound machine and I couldn't feel a thing!
Food cravings?: No, but I have a new love for the Yoplait Delights yogurts. Fresh fruit is also on the list while it's still affordable.
What I miss?: Being more active? Being able to run a mile, or two, or three without my knees hurting.
What I'm looking forward to?: We're looking forward to painting the nursery at some point soon.
Anything else?: Baby is creating all the gross stuff (as to avoid calling it by a name) in its body of which it will excrete when born. Ah, lovely. We were able to see them vividly (spine and ribs) on the ultrasound movements. We even have a video (above) to show the cool details.
This week in history: The Arizona immigration law is still controversial, Obama unemployment bill passed to extend help to jobless.
What's going on this week (with us)?: We've had a fun week so far. Last weekend we headed to Michigan and Indiana for a little Anniversary road trip and this week we're back to the norm. Ray has been working hard and I've been spending more time with friends locally. We went over to our friends, Jim & Kristi's house last night for a game night. We're seeing Bon Jovi in concert this weekend at Soldier Field!!!
We have another doctor's appointment today (my monthly OB). We'll see if there is anything else to report other than my obvious baby weight gain (and maybe ice cream-caused weight gain). :)
