Every week is a new adventure, and this one is no different. I'm in week 19 (about 4 months in, 5 months to go!) and we got to have another ultrasound...which means MORE BABY PICS!! :)
This week's milestones:
Baby girl is growing...she is now up to 8 ounces...double what she was just 4 weeks ago.
She smiles! And moves her mouth (practicing talking back) and throws gang signs (or maybe just calling me a "loser")
My belly is getting to be a real belly!
My work heels no longer work (back pain anyone??)...I'm down to flats and kitten heels
I'm back to eating chicken
I can still work out! ...I ordered a prenatal workout video online and did it for the first time last night...the woman is 8 months pregnant and she kicked my ace!
I may have felt her move...still not sure if it's her moving or me digesting my latest snack...
We're starting to make some progress on our to-do's...well, kind of...we've at least made a list!
I am telling you, I have a whole new-found respect for parents. I had no idea how many options and decisions and worries you have to go through...and I know in this day and age things are a lot different than they were when I was born. We're practically on information overload...but my mom told me that she went to the doctors office and they told her "yep, you're pregnant...come back in 8 months and we'll deliver". I wish it were that easy! It's a good thing God gives you 9 months until the baby actually gets here...we need all the time we can get!
