Our sweet baby is about ten inches long (from head to heel) and
weighs about ten and a half ounces. He is
swallowing a lot, practicing for digesting food later. His taste buds
are now developed!
Biggest news since my last post? We found out our baby’s gender!! 😀
It’s so amazing to be close to halfway done! (ACOG [American Congress
of Obstetricians and Gynecologists] says
full-term is 42 weeks.) Can’t believe how
quickly time is flying!
Remember how in my last post I asked our little one to start
moving? A week later, when I was 17 weeks
to the day, he did!!! I had just woken up and was lying in bed
when I felt it…just a few repetitive taps on my left side.
The Pilot was still sleeping, but I quickly woke him up! Our son
moves quite a bit! I usually feel him at least once a day. I love it!!
I can even see my tummy jump from the outside. Makes my heart
so happy to feel/see him move!
Felt my first Braxton Hicks contraction a few days ago as well!
Definitely a unique feeling…that and baby kicking my bladder!
I’m also now showing enough that people know I’m pregnant…
not just pudgy. 😉 I finally had one person ask if I was pregnant…
and at least one other person just assume I was. Makes me smile
so big! Not at all ashamed of my baby bump. 😀 😀
So thankful that all my aversions are still gone. I keep craving
grapes and strawberries. So good!! And they satisfy my
sugar cravings, which is also a great bonus!
We love you!! It makes Mommy and Daddy
smile so big to see and feel your kicks. We are so
excited to see your face in only a few months! God has
such great things planned for you…and you are already
such a blessing to us!
