I am settling in to the 4th month now, it seems. I don’t know about you, but I feel like time is moving by so slowly. I kind of want to fast forward through all this and get to the good stuff, like when the baby comes, lol. But, I should also savor every day since it’s my last pregnancy. Ugh, I have so many conflicting thoughts and emotions going on inside me, you don’t want to be in my head!
And now for the belly shot:
I really don’t think my belly has changed much from last week. You can obviously tell I’m pregnant, of course, and more and more people around me are starting to notice. It’s more “tight/firm” in the upper half of my belly though and the lower half is still a bit squishy, so I don’t really know what to think about that. I’m hoping it’s because my uterus is getting bigger & pushing my organs upwards already, so that’s why it’s so firm there. And the squishy part is really just that bit of flab that’s been there since my first pregnancy.
Baby Size: About the size of a “Turnip” – 5in, 5oz
Gender: Unknown. My Anatomy US appt is March 27th so I can’t wait until next week!
Movement: None yet, which makes me anxious.
Weight Gained: I actually lost 2lbs! Lol. (Although I don’t know how accurate my bathroom scale is because I haven’t used it in years, but I don’t feel like I’ve really gotten any bigger.)
New Pregnancy Symptoms: None really. Still suffering from major acid reflux and gas and the occasional back and pelvic aches. And the itchy boobs, too.
Cravings/Aversions: Nothing yet, either way. I do have my appetite back, but food doesn’t really interest me nowadays. I just eat because I’m hungry, and not much at that, which probably explains why I lost some weight, haha.
Sleep Changes: Nothing much has changed there. Starting to get a little more uncomfortable, but nothing too bad.
How I’m Feeling: A little sad sometimes, with no real reason though. I always have a lot on my mind, and that tends to drive my emotions in all sorts of directions.
Anything Else: Still feeling anxious about whether or not the baby is growing and if it’s healthy. Even more important than finding out the gender, I seriously can’t wait for the US so I can know for sure that things are going accordingly and that Baby is alright. I don’t have any real reason for feeling so anxious, I just can’t help it.
Thanks for following along on this journey with me. See you next week!
