Holy crap friends – we’re into the single digit week countdown. Like…insert freak out here.
How I’m feeling…more and more tired. More and more winded – like seriously, half my office is upstairs and I often go up and down the stairs at least 3 times a day – which is good because that’s about as much working out as I can fit in these days – but by the time I get up there I’m winded and need to sit for at least five minutes before I trek back down. Slight exaggeration but whatevs. Other than that, feeling good. This cold weather is killing my nose though – so dry and stuffy. Sleeping less and less, though every night after I sleep horribly I sleep like a log out of sheer exhaustion. It is taking more and more to get comfy though which…isn’t surprising when I’ve got a pineapple growing inside me.
Baby is…the size of a PINEAPPLE!!!! Finally, a cool fruit! Baby weighs about 2 1/2-3 1/2 pounds and is about 14-16″ long. All of baby’s senses are fully developed (!!!) and his irises can react to light. Additionally, all of his major organs are developed sans the lungs which are still developing more and more every day. He’s really growing and moving and shakin’ in there, and is still going through some major brain and nerve development!
Wearing…maternity everything I can without going broke. I even bought my first nursing bra from target which is pseudo comfortable…most days.
Baby stuff bought…I had my baby shower in CT this past weekend so what wasn’t bought (and not by us…)? Seriously…it was amazing and I am so so blessed to be surrounded by an amazing and generous network of family and friends. Recap on that to come
