Our baby now weighs about three-quarters of a pound and is approximately 10 1/2 inches long — the length of a carrot. (According to the ultrasound tech the baby is actually 15 oz.) I am starting to feel like he's practicing martial arts as his initial fluttering movements are turning into full-fledged kicks and nudges. I am also discovering a pattern to his activity as I am getting to know him better. He is most active after I eat a meal, or sugar. In other developments, my baby's eyebrows and lids are present now.
My weight is starting to slowly climb back up to my beginning weight, probably because I have a massive baby growing inside me. I am also starting to get more hungry more often. I will eat a full meal and stuff my self silly and a hour later I will be starving again. No weird cravings yet if anything it is sugar; candy and root beer!
Gordon and I went to Babies R Us today and registered. Wow, it was really overwhelming! I was so exhausted and I can't believe how much stuff little babies need. Where the heck am I going to put all of it??
As you can see from the picture, the baby bump is in full swing!
Did you guess the gender correctly?
