Size of baby: They now lump the baby into months. Month 5 - Baby
Apparently I need to watch what I say -- baby is now able to hear outside noise from down in the womb. Studies show that baby finds gentle music and my own voice most soothing. Nipples are starting to sprout, and that little face is fully formed. And, baby's starting to settle into sleep cycles, snoozing about 12 to 14 hours a day. It shouldn't be hard to figure out when --I should just pay attention to those kicks as they start and stop.
Weight Gain: 6lbs still.
Belly: Coming soon.
Stretch Marks: None so far.
Sleep: I take what I can get.
Best Moment of the Week: I was talking to my brother earlier this week and in mid sentence I got my first real kick - it was hard. And it stopped me mid sentence. It was very cool.
Movement: I feel her move everyday now. Not all the time - so I guess the sleeping 12-14 hours a day is right. I was very aware of it yesterday because I fell on ice yesterday morning and was really sore and MW told me to stay off my feet, so I laid around all day. I was making sure that I felt her move around b/c I was nervous of course. But I'm sure she didn't feel anything other than a little shake.
Symptoms: I'm getting a little tired again, but that might be from the lack of sleep I'm getting.
Food cravings: No more consistent cravings.
Gender: A little, precious lady.
What I Miss: Nothing really. Although I went out for a friend's bday and I did miss enjoying a glass of wine with them.
What I'm Looking Forward To: Having C feel the baby. And getting a bigger belly.
Weekly Wisdom: This is going to be weather related ... um, don't go outside in the ice if you're pregnant. Plain and simple.
Milestones: 3 weeks until the viability mark. Wow!
Emotions: I am definitely getting a temper and letting it show. I snap at Chuck a lot. I apologize right afterwards, but really, if he wasn't such a man, then maybe I wouldn't get so pissed. (just kidding - he is the best.) ;
